In the course of life, the forehead tends to loose its elasticity; this is caused by regular sun exposure, environmental influences and gravity. The result is relaxation of the skin, sagging eyebrows and increased wrinkling.
A forehead lift is performed using a specific endoscopic plastic surgery procedure that tightens and smoothes the entire forehead while eliminating wrinkles and brightening the entire upper face.
Eyelids are very sensitive to gravity, and sagging eyelids often make you look more tired. They can even obstruct or block vision. During the surgical intervention, which is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision in the upper eyelid crease and removes excess skin tissue. To reduce side effects like swellings and hematomas that almost always subside within 3 - 5 days, patients are advised to use mild compresses. The patient will notice a more alert, youthful look after just a couple of weeks.
Botulinum toxin is a protein complex effective in weakening or blocking certain nerve impulses. The material has been known and used for medical aesthetic purposes for centuries. Non-surgical injections into facial expression muscles can temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines and crow’s feet. Treating mimic wrinkles is very straightforward with this method; the first effects are to be expected within a few days and last for about six months after which it is possible to repeat the whole procedure.
Hyaluronic acid treatments
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical in the human connective tissue. The substance is considered to be generally well tolerated and used in aesthetic medicine as an injection for wrinkle treatment. The intervention is performed on an outpatient basis, and the products are well tolerated. The long-established procedure also enables lip modeling and the enhancement of facial contours. Treatment effects last for about 12 months or longer.
