Your web site means that 65 is the best higher restrict for eye Thermage. I’m near 80. I’ve had facial Thermage however wonder if I’m too previous for the attention remedy. (I haven’t got any extreme issues with hooding or wrinkles–good genes, a little bit of Botox and Thermage!) SD
It is a good query, as a result of as we age, we wish to protect as a lot as potential:
- The form of our face by preserving quantity. We lose about 250 cc of quantity in our faces as we age (25-90) if we don’t change it.
- The standard of the pores and skin by avoiding solar injury.
- The elasticity and firmness (learn collagen) of our dermis.
Age issues as a result of we lose a few of our dermis (collagen & elastic fibers) and supporting buildings significantly fats and bone as we age. The extra dermis we’ve got, the extra gadgets like Thermage, Ultherapy, Profound, Infini, and so forth. are profitable. At 80, none of those procedures will hurt you, it’s simply that you could be not see a lot seen impact. Even so, they assist with preserving what we’ve got, however it will likely be delicate. The one restriction with the Thermage eye tip, since eye shields must be used, is to debate it along with your eye physician, when you’ve got corneal issues.
Most of what’s talked about under works even higher on youthful pores and skin as a result of the pores and skin has extra collagen, fibroblasts (cells that make collagen), elastin fibers, and so forth.
This has to do with retaining a clean contour not solely of our “body”, but additionally the important thing curvy areas of the face across the cheeks, eyes and mouth. A lot of the jowl points relate to this one. Because the higher face loses quantity, it’s the decrease face the place we see it. The vectors are happening, as an alternative of up! Is sensible doesn’t it. The easiest way to do that is a creative dermatologist, mid-level supplier like a PA-C or ARNP, or some RNs who’s expert with fillers. Quantity is hard although, as a result of carried out poorly it simply seems to be bizarre (let’s be trustworthy) with chipmunk cheeks, duck lips, and different unnatural trying contours.
High quality of the pores and skin
Which means blotchiness, brown spots and melasma, crimson spots and dilated blood vessels with most of those being associated to an excessive amount of solar injury. Or…..to pores and skin ailments like allergic reactions, eczema or rosacea. Skincare merchandise, particularly day by day use of excessive zinc sunscreeens, and several other lasers just like the IPL/BBL, or Fraxel for instance assist essentially the most with this.
Elasticity (tightness), and firmness (collagen)
As we age we lose the above slowly, and solar injury simply accelerates it. Constructing collagen is essential with good skincare merchandise like retinols (and prescription tretinoin), cell progress elements, and so forth.. Lasers like Fraxel, carbon dioxide, and erbium lasers are useful, as are the radiofrequency or associated gadgets like Thermage, and deep radiofrequency microneedling (like Profound and others).
