You should look your age, people may tell you. Absolutely. But how soon you should start fighting ageing is completely your choice. Experts say that some start opting for various anti-ageing or skin rejuvenation treatments right from their 20s. This is simply because they not only want to halt ageing, but also wish to save their skin from discoloration, dullness and other kinds of irregularities. These days, extremely sophisticated and high-end skin rejuvenation techniques are being experimented with not only in the West, but also in India. The best part about these techniques is, most of these do not require you to go under the knife; insofar as non-invasive or minimally invasive therapies are concerned, you’d indeed be spoilt for choice.
When should you start looking?
How one reacts to ageing, of course, depends on the individual. One can be following a basic skin care routine that involves cleaning, toning, moisturizing and applying sun blocks and yet would like to achieve a more glowing and poreless complexion. Some can get early signs of ageing right from their 30s – fine lines and wrinkles may arrive unannounced. On top of these, there can be dark spots, pigmentation and sagging skin. In that case, one can also wish to opt for non-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques to stop premature ageing. Therefore, in such cases, which therapies should be the ideal starting point? Says Dr Madhuri Agarwal, founder and medical director, YAVANA Aesthetics Clinic, “Assuming CTM and exfoliating routines are followed, you can start with basic skin treatments such as laser rejuvenation, photo facials for skin tightening and chemical peels for dark spots and pigmentation. Facial fillers can treat early lines and wrinkles as well. Non-surgical thread lift can also be added to contour the jawline and reduce double chin. “
