In today’s world, when life expectancy is consistently on the rise, we want to look good and look younger even at the most advanced of ages. Luckily, technology is capable of fulfilling our dreams.
Though there is no therapy available that could truly turn back the clock for our skin, there are treatments which make us look younger – already here, and we have plenty of treatment options.
Anti-aging is a term that came to mean the multitude of activities and treatments geared at delaying the natural ageing process and slowing down the changes that take place in our body as we age. This complex process of delaying changes in the skin and improvement of its appearance and health is an ongoing assignment, which demands much persistence and dedication.
The changes occurring with age
The reasons for the changes occurring in the skin, besides chronological age, are related to a number of factors: long term exposure to the sun radiation, hormonal changes – either age related or not, metabolic changes occurring in our body over the years and pigmentary changes.
For the most part, the underlying changes in the facial and body skin appear as small warts, spots, dilated blood vessels and loss of tissue elasticity in the deeper layers of the skin. These cause the skin to look thin, wrinkled, dry, blotchy and lacking in vitality.
The changes are most prominent in the face – the eyes sink in, wrinkles appear around the eyes, on the forehead, at the sides of the neck, and at the sides of the nose (mimic wrinkles). This process is accompanied by the facial muscles slacking and the jaw bones receding. The combination of these changes creates a tired facial expression, characteristic for old age.
Anti Ageing – treatment options
As mentioned above, the treatment process is comprised from a number of steps and we offer multiple treatment options.
Peeling – the main treatment
Peeling is the treatment which induces the most significant change.
Peeling involves purposeful controlled damage to a varying depth of the skin, which causes acceleration in the growth rate of the skin cells, treating past damages and inducing skin restoration. Peeling can be performed using various methods and instruments, among which are laser devices, Intense Pulsed Light Treatment, as well as a variety of chemical agents.
The challenge and the difficulty in this process is in combining a number of techniques successfully for the maximum effect. For example, deep peeling with Fractional Laser, accompanied by local chemical peeling, and combining these with light flash treatment in other areas. In other areas, such as the front of the chest, chemical peeling may be combined with IPL.
Anti Ageing injections
Another treatment option in the scope of Anti Ageing treatments, which counteracts some of the wear and tear caused by time, is a variety of treatments using injections.
Whether the point of injections is to act as a filler for wrinkles or sagging skin, or smoothing mimic wrinkles by forcing mimic muscle relaxation through chemical agents, the final result is a smoother and younger-looking skin.
Jet Peel – a new generation in facial treatment
A facial treatment which returns glamor and freshness to your face, stimulates blood circulation, tightens the skin, and as a bonus – removes toxins from the skin. This innovative treatment plan, based on cutting edge technologies, injects active nourishment materials, oxygen and physiological fluid into the skin using air pressure.
The Jet Peel treatments are suitable for everyone and achieve fantastic results, such as improvement of the skin texture and its tightening, improvement of deep pigmentation, softening and smoothing out the wrinkles. This treatment can be combined with various facial treatments, therefore, it is perfect as a complementary treatment for other anti ageing options.
Skin tightening treatment
A novel treatment, the objective of which is firming up the skin and tightening it, as well as improving its texture, is based on a unique technology of radio waves (RF), which cause warming of the sub skin layer. By doing so we achieve a tightening of the existing collagen fibers and formation of new ones, we improve the blood flow and the metabolism. Strengthening the lower layers of the skin creates a stronger scaffold for the skin, and the result is obvious – a tighter, more smooth and firm skin, gleaming with vitality.
Skin tightening is composed of a series of ten initial treatment, and preservative treatments are recommended as a follow-up. It is targeted for men and women alike who suffer from loose and wrinkled skin, fine lines and bumps, and is suitable for all areas of the body.
Building an Anti Aging program
When building a program in the framework of Anti Aging treatments there are multiple options to choose from. It is possible to perform a single treatment or a series of treatments, to have combined treatments and complementary treatments. In addition to combining various treatments such as peeling combined with injections, a number of technologies can be combined within a single treatment, such as laser devices with Intense Pulsed Light Treatment, or with various chemical agents.
The most important part of the treatment is to receive professional advice, matching the treatment program to the patient and his/her unique needs.
