And is that many people do on a regular or follow healthy habits from not smoking or drinking or staying up late, to those who apply each day creams and treatments to keep your skin the best conditions.

However, the passage of time is relentless and does not hesitate to make its mark, especially in the face. Thus, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, cosmetologists and spend valuable hours of research to innovate and improve methods to improve their condition and to be more durable and will not cause too drastic changes in the face of the person.

Before coming to the recent advances in the field, we should mention the simplest and most time on the market, which stimulate the skin and restores its natural ability to regenerate. Within these treatments are:

Peeling. This method removes old cells of the epidermis layer of the skin, using products in the formula contemplated special substances (usually glycolic acid); the goal is to move to new newly generated cells by the body itself, which is known as a natural process of cell renewal. The result is a more youthful appearance, and also serve to eliminate fine wrinkles so does the marks left by acne or to unify the tone, this is recommended once every three months.

Micro-peels. A special machine that uses aluminum hydroxide crystals, which rotate at high speed, manages to remove the surface layer of the skin, so that eliminates blemishes, enlarged pores and acne scars, mainly. The session lasts 30 minutes, and recovery requires only use sunscreen until a week later, so that means its popularity.

Mechanical dermabrasion. A motor apparatus is used similar to the prior art with the difference that it uses diamonds "sanding" the surface of the skin. It is recommended for problems where there are very sharp and deep acne scars, is performed under anesthesia.

Chemical dermabrasion. Uses various substances such as glycolic acid, lactic acid or trichloroacetic, among others, to cause abrasions (irritation) and the subsequent controlled epidermal renewal.

They should mention the so-called facelifts, methods to correct the lack of firmness in the tissues of the face, do not require specialist intervention and can do it in the clinic or office, among the most important are: facial mesotherapy. consists of application by a medical specialist, small amounts of substances (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hyaluronic acid and plant extracts) in the dermis (area located between the first layer of skin and fat beneath it) using special syringe.

The injection is painless and appears to be one of the best ways to combat signs of aging and sagging face and neck. The results are noticeable from the first session, but must be scheduled another 2 or 3 after 15 to 30 days and, after obtaining the desired improvement, is to undergo a maintenance session every three months.

Non-ablative laser. A beam of light passes through without burning the epidermis, the dermis reaches causes heating that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin (substances that give firmness to the skin). For best results will require more than five sessions.

Botox. This substance is injected into facial areas where you want to fade wrinkles, especially for insulin by syringe passage through skin and subcutaneous tissue to reach the muscle where the substance is deposited making it to a standstill, making it impossible to contract, so that no motion and therefore, no wrinkles. It is usually injected to stop temporarily, the effect lasts between 4 and 6 months with "crows feet", forehead lines, marks on the forehead and wrinkles at the corners of the lips, giving total freedom to speak and smile .

Facial implants. Also known as "fillers", correct deep wrinkles, folds, scars and participate in the remodeling of the lips, cheekbones, cheeks, chin and even hands too thin. Also applied by injection, and among the most reliable materials, as well as classic and collagen, hyaluronic acid include synthetic polymers, fully biocompatible, i.e., are absorbed slowly and avoid the possibility of rejection.

There are permanent fillers that last forever and they are usually of synthetic origin, but have the risk that may cause displacement or enclosures, in other words, the implant is smooth or "balls" and tends to move from the original position where it was placed.

The newest methods aim at implementing the patient's own fat into something or technique that avoids potential problems of rejection or allergies, also using more harmonics to the features of a youthful face, i.e. to enhance the cheekbones, highlighting the end of the eyebrows, enhancing the area of the temples (if in these holes are formed, giving look old and tired), contain better or make more prominent chin.

The procedure begins when the surgeon identifies the regions of body fat which is removed (usually abdomen or the same face) through cannulas (small hose products or special media), through small incisions, using a vacuum cleaner for the which uses blunt instruments (flat and dull) that do not damage the areas from which fat is removed, this process is called liposuction or liposuction.

In the area receiving local anesthetic is applied to get the fat cells, after which, thanks to special needles and syringes, small droplets of fat (pre-purified) are deposited in areas to be treated. For the effect to be homogeneous, natural and durable, the droplets are not injected all at the same level but in different layers of skin found beneath the superficial (epidermis), i.e., dermis and hypodermis. Recovery takes several days but the effect lasts for several years.

But in people with extreme facial sagging is the most recommended, so that the surgeon should not create false expectations in the patient. It must be clear that the innovation of the procedure only results have been evaluated for three years and that for the time effects can not be guaranteed over this period.

It is worth remembering that for any of the techniques mentioned here should consult a specialist in dermatology or plastic surgery, they fall into the hands of charlatans can mean fatal consequences.

Finally, it should be mentioned that sometimes scientific innovations provide alternatives that are remarkable for their practicality.
