BACKGROUND: Aging affects the 3-dimensional structure of all the facial tissues: Bones, muscles, ligaments, adipose tissue, and skin.
AIM: To customize minimally invasive treatments for facial rejuvenation, we present a standardized holistic approach characterized by at-home treatments in associations with outpatient procedures.
METHODS: Forty-four patients underwent 3-dimensional stepwise facial rejuvenation and were evaluated prospectively. Each patient received a customized treatment plan based on a clinical examination and consultation. Treatment outcomes were evaluated from patient photographs with and skin analysis was performed with an A-One Smart automated skin analysis system.
RESULTS: The mean age of the patients was 41.7 years and the approximate mean duration of treatment was 160 days. Patients applied cosmeceuticals such as retinoic acid. Outpatient procedures included the delivery of botulinum toxin or dermal fillers, thread lifting, chemical peels, etc. Upon treatment completion, significant improvements were noted in multiple domains: Skin elasticity and hydration increased, areas of hyper-pigmentation were less extensive, and there were fewer visible wrinkles and pores.
CONCLUSION: Outcomes of the present article suggest how important is to customize facial anti-aging treatments. Nonsurgical treatments carried out progressively, involving the patient to perform at-home treatments in associations with outpatient procedures, let to achieve facial improvements in terms of increased skin elasticity and hydration, reduction of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and pores.
