I see clients of different age group every day, from young people in their teens to men and women in their 70s. But there is one thing in common – everyone wants to look younger. The universal request I get from my clients on a daily basis is – I want to look younger. What should I do?
I am going to give you some tips on how to maintain your youth:
This is probably the most neglected yet the most important part of all. I can do a lot of treatment for you but if you don’t have a healthy lifestyle, nothing is going to help.
A healthy diet plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Avoid fatty food, junk food, and sugary soft drinks.
Allocate your time to exercise at least 3 times a week. Exercise improves blood circulation to your skin, bringing more essential nutrients and hydration to your skin.
Have adequate sleep. Chronic lack of sleep makes you look saggy, wrinkly with eye bags and dark eye circle. You will age quicker if you don’t sleep enough.
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol. They make your skin age quicker.
There are 2 things that you must have if you want to maintain your youth – Sunscreen, and moisturizer.
Sunscreen is the most important skin care essential. UV ray from the sun causes sunburns, pigmentation, premature skin aging and leads to skin cancer. Basically, it damages your skin.
Invest in a good sunscreen that protects you from UVA and UVB.
Moisturizer keeps the skin well hydrated. Well, hydrated skin looks younger and healthier. It slows down the skin aging process.
Besides sunscreen and moisturizer, remember to keep your face clean. Wash your face twice a day. All the dirt, dust and foreign substances on your face may make your facial skin dry, clogged up and irritated. Get rid of them when you get home after a long day. Do not sleep with your makeup on because it will damage your skin.
If you are already doing all those that I have mentioned, you can then consider cosmetic treatment.
When it comes to aesthetic treatment to look younger, I will generally focus on 2 aspects of aging – skin quality and facial sagging.
Noticed I mentioned skin multiple times before this?
By improving and maintaining your skin quality, you can look younger than your actual age. It is important to let a doctor assess your skin so your doctor can advise you what treatment suits your skin type best. You can start with simple treatment such as a good quality facial, medical light rejuvenation, chemical peel in Singapore and radiofrequency skin tightening treatment. You can then move on to skin rejuvenation laser and skin resurfacing laser which typically aim to reduce pigmentation, improve skin texture and stimulate collagen regeneration. If you are comfortable with injections, powerful anti-aging treatment such as Rejuran and skin booster may be suitable for you.
Sagging is the hallmark of aging. When you age, you lose collagen, fat and structural support in the face so your face starts to sag. Treatment that aims to lift and tighten your face will restore some youth in you.
If you are not a fan of needles, you can start with HIFU lifting and RadioFrequency lifting treatment which do not require injections. However, the results are gradual and progressive therefore may not be suitable for people who wish to see immediate results. Those who wish to see more immediate lifting and are comfortable with needles can opt for filler and thread lift treatment that provides instant face lifting effect.
These are some of the examples of aesthetic treatments that can help improve skin quality and reduce face sagging. It is important to see a doctor to get a proper assessment and advice before getting any treatment done.
