What anti-aging treatment do you need?

Anti-aging
antiaging
or anti-aging is a practice focused on restoring youth to the face and body and concealing the aging process through the reduction of spots and wrinkles, improving the quality of the skin by providing luminosity and elasticity and in some cases eliminating hair. This is a set of procedures that can be performed without surgery or by means of small surgical interventions.

Some factors that contribute to facial aging are genetics, stress, diet, acne, and of course smoking and solar ultraviolet radiation.

Among the most demanded anti-aging treatments and surgeries are anti-wrinkle treatments, lifting and eyelid surgery called “blepharoplasty“, according to the Spanish Society of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (SECPRE).

WHAT ARE THE MAIN TYPES OF ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS AND WHAT DO THEY CONSIST OF?

TYPES OF ANTI-AGING TREATMENT: INJECTABLES AND FACIAL FILLERS

This procedure consists of the injection, by means of fine needles, of substances such as hyaluronic acid, classic hydroxyapatite, as well as other biocompatible substances.

WHAT IS THE DURATION OF EACH SESSION?

This usually varies depending on the quality of the skin and the patient. It usually lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on the area and complexity, and sometimes a second session is necessary 2 to 4 weeks after the first one, depending on the case.

  • Reduces flaccidity
  • Eliminates or conceals facial wrinkles, correcting fine and superficial lines.
  • Reduced dark circles under the eyes and skin depressions or sagging
  • Recovery of lost volume due to aging

POST-TREATMENT

  • Wait a minimum of 1 hour before applying make-up to the treated area. Ideally, nothing should be applied until after 24 hours.
  • Apply sunscreen SPF 50+ for one week after treatment.
  • Avoid physical exercise on the day of treatment.
  • Visit for a check-up after 2 weeks.

TYPES OF ANTI-AGING TREATMENT: CHEMICAL PEELING

WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?

Chemical peeling is a treatment that consists of a chemical exfoliation, thus eliminating the damaged outer layers of the skin with a subsequent regeneration of these layers. This results in improved skin texture and tone.

Long exposure to the sun or acne are some of the factors that cause blemishes, scars or uneven tone that this procedure can regenerate.

The treatment can be performed at different depths (

The number of the desired result is determined by the type of the product (e.g., medium or deep). A deep chemical peel has better results, but it involves a longer recovery time and sometimes it is necessary to do it in the operating room with deep sedation.

  • Correction of uneven pigmentation
  • Reduction of fine wrinkles
  • Skin rehydration
  • Reduction of acne scars
  • Skin brightness
  • Stain removal

The PRP or platelet growth factor treatment is to reverse the signs of aging that occur in mature skin or improve the brightness and consistency in young skin. It is performed through infiltrations injecting platelet-rich plasma obtained from the patient’s own blood. This procedure is also widely used in trauma injuries for tendon or cartilage injuries, or scar areas.

WHAT IS THE DURATION OF THE SESSION?

Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes each, requiring 3 sessions to obtain results.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?

  • Stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin.
  • Cell regeneration
  • Increased skin radiance

  • Improves coloration
  • Reduces fine wrinkles and expression lines
  • Promotes skin cell renewal

POST-TREATMENT

  • Do not rub the treated area
  • Do not go to the swimming pool or sauna a few hours after the procedure.
  • Use sunscreen during the first week post-treatment.

Every skin, like every person, is different. That is why I recommend that before undergoing an anti-aging treatment, you put yourself in the hands of your trusted plastic surgeon. You can make an appointment at DraVillaverde, the first consultation is free of charge.
