Those chiselled cheeks are the stuff of red-carpet fantasies. However, celebrities frequently get by with a little help from their dermatologist in addition to the correct diet and fitness routine. We chatted with three renowned dermatologists who revealed some of the best-kept celebrity secrets as well as the most advanced shaping procedures in dermatology.
Treatment consists of dermal fillers
While ageing is unavoidable, its visible consequences do not have to be. Sunken and sallow skin develops as the skin loses flexibility. Dermal fillers, according to Dr. Madhuri Agarwal, dermatologist and CEO of Yavana Aesthetics Clinic, are a quick and straightforward treatment that provides immediate results. “Dermal fillers cause little discomfort and downtime.” They are prefilled syringes that often include hyaluronic acid, are administered by small injections, and provide immediate apparent benefits. The natural, hyaluronic acid-based soft tissue gel is completely safe and actually encourages the skin to produce more collagen, restoring a youthful, contoured appearance.” Depending on the type of filler and where it is injected, the results can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy (HIFU)
High-frequency sound waves are used in this therapy to cure skin damage. “The therapy stimulates collagen formation, resulting in firmer, healthier skin.” For 30 to 90 minutes, short bursts of ultrasound energy are administered to the afflicted area. “The therapy may be utilised on the face or the body, and there is no downtime,” Dr Niketa Sonavane, dermatologist and founder of Ambrosia Aesthetics, explains. Patients often experience benefits three months after the operation, which may take more than one sitting.
Sculpting treatments aren’t just for the face; a visit to the doctor can help you achieve your body goals as well. Emsculpt is a popular body shaping procedure that employs electromagnetic energy to constrict muscles. The treatment uses a technique that is comparable to how our muscles contract naturally, which aids in the reduction of body fat. Chaitanya Kenchammanahoskote, proprietor of Maya Medi Spa, explains the procedure: “The technology creates 20,000 supramaximal muscular contractions that are not feasible with voluntary contractions.” As a result, muscle tissue is pushed to adapt to such harsh conditions. It responds by undergoing extensive remodelling of its internal structure, resulting in muscular growth and fat burning.”
Dr. Agarwal considers the threadlift therapy, which uses double needle threads, to be groundbreaking since it provides a contoured, sculpted micro face-lift without surgery. “The threads will be placed under the skin by a certified dermatologist with no incisions or cuts.” “The threads elevate sagging skin like an umbrella,” she explains. This surgery can reshape the jawline and cheeks while also correcting drooping skin. The treatment usually requires one session and the results are immediate, lasting 12-18 months.
