1) What new techniques and trends will there be that will rejuvenate and beautify people in the coming years?
In the coming years, the non-surgical way of making obvious differences in people’s face shape will no longer be science fiction, but will become reality.
a) For example, it will provide the opportunity to melt and reduce facial bones (eg nose, chin) or bones in the body (eg ribs, hips) by using the technology of devices used to break up kidney or gallstones.
b) Natural elements such as the patient’s own stem cells or honey will replace the silicone and similar fillings that we apply today.
c) The stem cell technology we currently use is among the treatments that are expected to provide a permanent solution to baldness by further developing
d) Clinical studies on genes and hormones on slowing, stopping or reversing aging provide a glimmer of hope to completely eliminate the concept of ‘old face’ in the coming years.
2) Do you think angles and shapes are an advantage in aging women?
Definitely. The most valuable element we pay attention to in facial aesthetics is the ‘golden ratio’. So what is this golden ratio? in short, the harmony of the modules with each other. Although there is a facial structure close to the golden ratio, aging is also slowed down. The shape of the forehead, nose, chin and the angle differences in the middle determine our facial beauty. Large eyes, full cheekbones, cheekbones and lips, a slightly raised nose tip, a clear chin are signs of pleasantness (Golden ratio, of course).
3) What would you recommend for women in their 40s? What should they do to prevent aging?
The 40s are a period when hormones begin to fall, the signs of being defeated by gravity and aging (wrinkles, spots, depressions around the eyes, loss of facial volume and sagging) appear. That’s why ’40 years old care’ is very valuable. Since sagging in the face and body due to involuntary weight gain in the premenopausal period and regional lubrication can also be annoying, I recommend that women in this age group do a check-up and have all their hormones, vitamins, cholesterol, iron and blood prices checked. If they want to delay aging, they should pay attention to their nutrition, I recommend them to consume plenty of water and foods high in vitamin C during the day. Smoking should be strictly avoided, regular walking and sports should be done, and quality sleep is of course very valuable. For dryness, wrinkles, sun and pregnancy spots on the skin, I recommend that they apply to a dermatologist and start the most appropriate treatment for them before it is too late.
4) How effective is the sun in skin aging, what do you think about this issue?
Skin aging occurs due to internal and external causes. Intrinsic causes are our genetic characteristics. 60-80% of external causes are sun rays, 20-40% are malnutrition, unsystematic sleep, tension, smoking and alcohol use. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are wasted in the sun’s rays, cause wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, cracked capillaries, permanent redness, color tone difference, loss of elasticity and sagging on the skin.
It is necessary to avoid going out into the sun, especially in the middle of 11:00 – 16:00, and we recommend applying the sunscreen cream with a protection factor of at least 30 every day (even on rainy and snowy days) 15-30 minutes before going out into the sun and renewing it every 2-3 hours. Sunbathing for hours or going to the solarium for tanning is very damaging to the skin, triggering the formation of skin cancer rather than aging.
5) In the following periods, what cannot be done today will become possible?
We hope that the problem of baldness and hair loss will be a thing of the past in the future.
Non-surgical face lift devices and some lasers that we currently use in the clinic will be available in residential versions, and everyone will be able to use this technology easily at home.
In the future, some of the operations we do on the face (Nano-technology) will be performed by microrobots.
6) If you want to rejuvenate someone by five to ten years, where is the most difficult area? What is easy?
In aesthetics, we divide the face into 3 parts: upper face (forehead area), mid face (cheeks and nose) and lower face (lips and jawline)
The easiest and fastest recovery of these is the upper face, the forehead and around the eyes. It is possible to get rid of the lines in the middle of the eyebrow, around the forehead and crow’s feet, thanks to the botox application, which takes about 10 minutes with fine-tipped needles. We make volume losses, collapses or contour formation in the middle face with the help of fillings. The most difficult part is the lower face. Because we need to remove the sagging that occurs in that area, harden the jaw line and round the face oval. For this, we prefer the techniques we call thread facelift or the devices we use in non-surgical facelifts such as focus ultrasound and thermage.
7) What is the most obvious difference between old techniques and new techniques?
In the past, surgical systems were always used for facial rejuvenation. Until a couple of years ago, a patient who wanted to have a face lift had no other cure other than surgery. However, in just one session, with the method we call a facelift with a thread or with the latest technology non-surgical facelift devices, the patient can quickly return to his daily life and get rid of sagging in just one session.
