Treatments for skin rejuvenation and preventing unwanted signs of ageing

On facial ageing and possible actions

There are several reasons why a face changes with age. You may experience a rapid change yourself, but in reality it is a slow process. Often it is a combination of these changes that causes the signs of ageing.

The face is the first thing we see in a person.

How we age and the rate at which signs of ageing appear is individual. Both hereditary factors and lifestyle play a role. Sun, smoking and other unhealthy activities can accelerate the process.

  • The skin ages and loses its elasticity.
  • Sun damage in the form of pigmentary changes and wrinkles in the skin. Over time, superficial blood vessels and patchy hair growth may also appear.
  • The subcutaneous fat of the face is reduced, resulting in hollow eyes, folds around the mouth and a sunken and generally thinner face.
  • Muscles and connective tissue in the face become weaker, resulting in hamster bags in the lower part of the cheeks and sagging skin on the neck.
  • Repeated localised muscle activity between the eyes and around the mouth, for example, induces wrinkles.
  • The shape of the nose changes.
  • The eyebrows fall down, as does the forehead. Drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes occur.

Some people develop droopy eyelids, bags under the eyes or hollow eyes at an early age due to heredity. Others get it later in life. Therefore, there are no general rules on when it is most appropriate to change what you don't like about your appearance.

In recent years, developments in aesthetic surgery, laser surgery, laser treatments and aesthetic medicine have made it possible to achieve total rejuvenation through a combination of procedures. In other words, it is possible to:

  • Rejuvenate the skin and address superficial wrinkles.
  • Restore lost volume.
  • Lifting what has fallen down. Below is an overview of the different types of problems, how they can be addressed and what results can be expected.
  • Non-surgical procedures
