1) What new techniques and trends will there be that will rejuvenate and beautify people in the coming years?
In the coming years, making significant differences in the shape of people’s faces using non-surgical methods will no longer be science fiction, but will turn into reality.
a)For example, it will provide the opportunity to melt and reduce facial bones (e.g. nose, chin) or bones in the body (e.g. ribs, hips) by using the technology of devices for breaking kidney or gallstones.
b)The fillings made of silicone and similar materials that we apply today will be replaced by natural substances such as the patient’s own stem cells or honey.
c)The stem cell technology we currently use is among the treatments that are expected to provide a permanent solution to baldness by further development.
D)Clinical studies on genes and hormones on slowing, stopping or reversing aging provide 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 important factor that we pay attention to in facial aesthetics is the ‘golden ratio’. So what is this golden ratio? In short, the harmony of the parts 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 between them determine our facial beauty. Big eyes, full cheekbones, cheekbones and lips, slightly raised nose tip, prominent chin are the indicators of beauty (Golden ratio, of course).
3) What would you recommend for women in their 40s? What should they do to prevent aging?
The 40’s is 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 important. Since sagging on the face and body due to involuntary weight gain in the premenopausal period and regional lubrication can be annoying, I recommend women in this age group to have a check-up and have all their hormone, vitamin, cholesterol, iron and blood values 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 definitely be avoided, regular walking and sports should be done, and quality sleep is of course very important. 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% of them are malnutrition, irregular sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol use. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are harmful 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 in the sun, especially between 11:00 and 16:00, and we recommend applying 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, it triggers 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 home-type versions of some lasers that we currently use in the clinic will be on the market 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 wanted to rejuvenate someone by five to ten years, what would be 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 part of these is the forehead, which is the upper face, and the area around the eyes. It is possible to get rid of the lines between the eyebrows, around the forehead and crow’s feet, thanks to the Botox application made with fine-tipped needles, which takes about 10 minutes. 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, sharpen the jaw line and collect the face oval. For this, we prefer the methods 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 methods were always used for facial rejuvenation. Until a few years ago, a patient who wanted to have a face lift had no other choice but surgery. But now, in just one session, with the method we call thread facelift or with the latest technology non-surgical facelift devices, the patient can return to his daily life immediately and get rid of sagging in just one session.
