Hello everyone, I am Dr Lipy Gupta and I am a dermatologist. I am going to discuss Anti ageing treatments with you today. We all are aware of Botox and this is a Botulinum toxin very common and very common of his procedure is basically involves injections which are given on the skin which relaxes the muscles and it is good for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles specially around your forehead and the crossfit. The second most popular procedure are fillers and there is a whole range of fillers available, the most popular ones are Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Ultra XC. Voluma filler is for deeper lifting and the Ultra XC is for more superficial lifting. These fillers are available in prefilled syringes which can be injected into the desired area, per optimum results. The results with these fillers last easily for one and a half to two years and can be done by a trained dermatologist. The third most common procedure which is done these days is a therapy or high intensity focused ultrasound this is the technique which uses high intensity focused ultrasound energy in 3 different depth. A depth of 4.5 millimetre, 3 millimetre and 1.5 millimetre. The 1.5 millimetres is for superficial lifting the 3 and the 4.5 is for the deeper lifting of the skin. How it is done is that after application of an ultrasound gel, the probe is placed on the skin and the ultrasound energy is at fire to cause skin tightening and lifting of the skin. This is the common procedure not it is associated with little pain while the procedure is being done and a little bit of discomfort. However the results are excellent and generally last for a year and a half. Another most Common procedure which is now done is a thread lift. Threads are basically polydioxanone materials which is arranged and placed on a needle, the needle is inserted into the skin and the thread is automatically released. The thread which is place inside the skin disintegrates and induces new collagen over a period of 6 weeks to 6 months. This is available both as Monopolar as well as Bipolar which are thicker and deeper threads. Another procedure which I like to talk about is Micro needle radio-frequency, in this needles are inserted which are thermally insulated, these are fired into the skin they penetrate into the skin release radio frequency energy and cause skin tightening. This procedure works where if our reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face as well as for the neck area. Another common procedure these days is Vampire facelift which uses patients on blood, out of which the platelet rich traction is segregated. It is process and then it is injected into the facial skin or even sometimes this injected into the Nasolabial folds and other areas. Once this procedure is done there is a downtime of 2 to 3 days, however it gives a good facial rejuvenation and good facial lifting. Thank you for patient hearing and for any queries you can contact us at www. Thank you.
