Matching your “inside” to your “outside”
“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
The challenge of ageing gracefully is one that has amused humankind across the centuries and across all creeds and cultures. The old are survivors – a select group.
To age gracefully, one needs to anticipate that changes are inevitable (physically, emotionally, spiritually etc) and to adapt accordingly. If you’re still feeling young at heart, there’s no reason why your outside shouldn’t match your inside.
With technology advancing as it is in the 21st century, facial features can be expertly maintained for longer & longer.
Launched in 2013, the Silhouette Soft® mini-facelift has radically improved accessibility and affordability to improving the “sagging” face.
Made of poly L-lactic acid, thin sutures with built-in bidirectional cones are carefully inserted just under the skin to offer an immediate lifting action. Then, through the process of resorption, a regenerative action is stimulated where more collagen is produced by your skin, giving more definition while prolonging the lift effect for up to 18 months.
Poly L-lactic acid is fully biocompatible and has been used for many years in medical and surgical applications eg suture threads, orthopaedic pins,screws and nails for bone fractures, etc.
Various features of the face and neck can be improved with a mini-facelift, including jowls, cheeks and mid-face, eyebrows and “turkey neck”.
No special pre-treatment is required. The treatment is painless and is done in a matter of minutes using local anaesthetic with minimal side effects (some bruising, minor swelling and inflammation can be expected). No incisions are required – just a pair of expert steady hands!
The Almighty is always pleased with those of us who concern ourselves with our outward appearance, dress and decorum AS WELL AS with the beauty of our words and deeds.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said : “Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty.” (Sahih Muslim )
While wisdom, resilience and having a sense of humour on a bad day are hard-earned accomplishments of ageing, the floppy face is one we would all easily give up in favour of a more refreshed countenance.
Perhaps the Silhouette Soft® mini-facelift is an option for you.
