Ageing is an unavoidable fact of life. While there may not be a way to turn back the clock entirely, considerable advancements in dermatology and cosmetic procedures over the last few decades have made it possible to offset some of the common aesthetic effects of advancing years. The Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute offers a wide range of options using the latest technology.

Rough, patchy or dull-textured skin.

As the body’s largest organ, the human skin takes a beating over the course of a lifetime. Many individuals find that their facial skin appears duller or coarser in their advancing years. Luckily, there are a number of ways to address this. Microdermabrasion uses tiny particles to essentially sand off dead skin, which stimulates new cellular growth, leaving you looking fresher. The effects of microdermabrasion do not last all that long and you’ll need multiple treatments to really see the benefit. This is why some patients prefer a stronger treatment such as a chemical peel, which can lead to irritation in the short run, but can have a dramatic impact on a person’s skin texture.


Wrinkles and fine lines.

These are an inevitable part of the ageing process, but there are a number of ways to combat them. In the past, many patients opted for a facelift, however, improvements in minimally invasive procedures over the past two decades have resulted in many alternative options. A combination of Botox injections and injectable fillers like hydrochloric acid can dramatically reduce the number of wrinkles. Topical creams containing retinol (vitamin A) may also be able to help.

Blotchy patches and discolorations.

Years of sun exposure and acne scars can leave unsightly blemishes on facial skin over time. Laser treatments can be an effective means of eliminating these spots. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels may also be effective.

Baggy under-eye patches and sagging facial skin.

As we age, the fat structure underneath our facial skin tends to break down a bit with gravity, resulting in bags under the eyes and drooping cheeks. Strategically placed injections of hyaluronic acid can offer a lift and help correct this.

Thin lips.

Plump, Kylie Jenner-esque lips are all over the tabloid magazines these days. As many people age, however, their lips tend to thin out. Injections are a relatively affordable option that can restore volume in no time. Options range from subtle to more obvious and generally last for six months.
