Ageing Face

What is Botox?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is an injectable treatment that is primarily targeted to treat wrinkles, fine lines and creases on the face. It can also be used as a non-permanent facial contouring treatment to slim down your profile. Botox is more widely known as an effective anti-aging product for improving the appearance of your skin. Botox is able to treat signs of advanced aging as it promotes collagen production and skin elasticity. In Singapore, Botox is used to temporarily give patients a younger and tighter look.

What is Ageing Face?

An ageing face is typically characterised with dull and translucent skin, as well as the formation of wrinkles and fine lines on the face where there used to be plumpness. You may also notice that your skin is less firm as it used to be and you often look tired.

What causes Ageing Face?

Much of the ageing process is brought about by factors outside of your control, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun – this weakens your skin barrier with each exposure. 

Combined with facial creases and conditions such as eye bags or droopy eyelids, an ageing face is what causes you to look older than you actually are. 

Patients who tend to be expressive with their face will also find that they are more prone to wrinkles and deep furrows at a young age. This is because it is tougher for the skin to move back into position which leads to permanent lines on the face.

Some causes of an ageing face in Singapore may include:

  • Sun exposure
  • Genetics
  • Lack of hydration
  • Smoking
  • Irritants
  • Stress
  • Alcohol
  • Hormonal changes
  • Lack of nutrition

What are some symptoms of Ageing Face?

The ageing process starts from 25 years old. You may have an ageing face if you have:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Loss of skin elasticity

How is Ageing Face diagnosed?

An ageing face is typically diagnosed through a physical examination in Singapore. You can visit a dermatologist to take a closer look at your face who can refer you to a surgeon should you wish to have your symptoms corrected. He or she will also evaluate your medical history and lifestyle habits to determine any potential causes of your ageing face before formulating a treatment plan. There are a number of permanent or non-permanent treatment types for which you may be a suitable candidate. An ageing face can be treated through fat grafting, injectables such as Botox and fillers or surgery to the affected areas.

What are some treatment options for an Ageing Face in Singapore?

Fat Grafting

A fat grafting procedure involves moving fat out of other parts of the body such as the thighs, abdomen, flank and buttocks which tend to have excess fat, to the face such as the cheek area. The fat is then processed into liquid form and injected into the treatment areas for a bouncier look.

Fat grafts may not stay the same for life as they can be affected by factors such as weight loss and continued ageing. In general, patients will be able to see a more natural increase in volume in the treated areas as most of the fat will still remain in place.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

Botox is an injectable that relaxes your muscles that cause wrinkles. This allows the skin to look smoother. Facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines can be treated with Botox. For patients who want to prevent the onset of ageing, Botox can also be a suitable treatment method as long-term use promotes collagen production and skin elasticity.

A liquid facelift is when dermal fillers are injected to targeted areas on the face such as the nasolabial folds, jowls and other facial creases to replace the gradual loss of collagen. This helps to correct the look of an ageing face. Some types of fillers that are commonly used in Singapore are hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and Poly-D-Lactic Acid (PDLA).

Botox and dermal fillers are non-permanent methods of treating an ageing face and will require frequent maintenance.

Ptosis Surgery

Ptosis is a condition where your eyelids become droopy as a result of ageing. It can easily be treated in Singapore through ptosis surgery. Ptosis surgery is a permanent procedure where the muscle that helps to control eyelid movement is tightened or attached to other muscles to help raise the eyelid. Patients will see an improvement in their appearance after their scars have healed as they will have a more “awake” look that helps them to look younger.
