His clinic near Amsterdam is a testament to his commitment to excellence in aesthetic medicine. With a rich educational background and a deep commitment to ethical, evidence-based treatments, my team and I have developed a nuanced understanding of facial ageing and its solutions.
Why does facial ageing Lead to a Tired Appearance?
Our face undergoes several changes as we age, often leading to a tired appearance. This transformation is not due to a single factor but a combination of various anatomical changes.
Understanding these changes is crucial in developing effective treatment strategies.
Tear Troughs: "The eyes are the windows to the soul, and ageing can draw heavy curtains over them," I often say. Deepening tear troughs create shadows under the eyes, contributing significantly to a tired look.
With age, eyebrows tend to droop, giving a tired appearance. This is often due to the loss of skin elasticity and changes in underlying fat.
Temporal Fat Loss
The temples lose fat and volume over time, leading to a hollowed appearance that can make one look more tired and aged.
Loss of Cheek Projection
"Cheeks are the pillars of youth," as I describe them. Ageing leads to a reduction in cheekbone projection, contributing to a sagging appearance.
Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines
These lines become more pronounced with age, framing the mouth in a way that often conveys fatigue or sadness.
The Need for a Combination Treatment Strategy
A single treatment approach is often insufficient since ageing affects the face in multiple ways. "To restore the vitality of youth, we must approach the face as a harmonious whole, not just a collection of parts," is a principle I advocate in my practice.
The 4D Strategy: A Comprehensive Approach
The 4D strategy is a holistic approach that addresses the four dimensions of facial ageing: skin quality, loss of volume, muscle activity, and gravitational changes.
Treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy improve skin texture and elasticity.
Dermal fillers and fat grafting can replenish lost volume, particularly in the cheeks, temples, and under the eyes.
Muscle Activity Modulation
Botulinum toxin helps reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and lift drooping areas.
Counteracting Gravitational Changes
Techniques like thread lifts can provide a subtle, natural lift to sagging skin.
