Science lies at the heart of everything we do at the Aesthetic Room. Applying science to every aesthetic procedure is vital to successfully treating the multiple signs of ageing and a wide range of skin concerns in a way that enhances your natural beauty.
Understanding how our skin and facial systems function allows us to undertake a bespoke analysis and recommend the best course of treatment for you.
To become part of your own journey, read our insights into the anatomy of our face and skin, together with how our skin changes over time.
Your face is a complex network of vessels and capillaries which feed the skin and muscles with oxygenated blood and other nutrients. We call this your facial vascular system.
At the heart of your facial vascular system are several arteries. These form the basic elements of your facial vascular anatomy and include:
At The Aesthetic Room, we fully understand the intricacy of the facial vascular system allowing us to undertake a bespoke facial vascular analysis and in turn the course of treatment that will give you and your skin the best result.
The muscles in your face are responsible for facial expression, speaking, chewing and other movements. Each of these muscles has a unique function and over time repetitive daily use causes skin wrinkles (known as rhytids).
The basic anatomy relating to anti-wrinkle treatments includes the following muscles:
At The Aesthetic Room, we fully understand the complexity of the facial muscular anatomy and how they create fine lines and wrinkles. With every client, we undertake a bespoke facial analysis and recommend the best course of aesthetic treatment.
Throughout our lives, our skin goes through a multitude of changes.
In our 20’s our skin is already ageing. The deep fat pockets under the eyes that were evident in our teens begin to disappear and you may notice fine lines, discolouration, and a duller complexion. During this period, regular treatments such as Dermalux and microneedling can boost collagen production.
In our 30’s fat is deflating and muscle tone reducing. You might spot early signs of jowls and deeper nasolabial folds – the creases in your skin that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Collagen induction therapies, PDO threads, dermal fillers and PRP therapy can call delay these early ageing signs.
In our 40s facial ligaments and fascia are stretching, overlaying tissues begin to droop and skin begins to sag. Dermal fillers can now be used to structurally support muscles, anti-wrinkle injections can address lines and medial cheek fillers can lift jowls.
In our 50s bone loss begins, causing ligaments and muscles to stretch more as they lose support. Fat continues to reduce, resulting in hollowed and sagging skin, the pH level of our skin changes and it becomes more sensitive. Skin-nourishing facials are ideal during this period.
As a result of the changing needs of our skin, it’s critical that your facial practitioner understands these physiological changes on the face as we age and treats you appropriately.
As hormone levels plummet during menopause your skin can become dry, slack, and thin as it loses collagen. As collagen diminishes, skin loses firmness leading to jowls, prominent pores, permanent lines around the nose and mouth and wrinkles that used to appear only with a smile or frown become visible all the time.
Fluctuating female hormones can also cause acne, and increased skin sensitivity, and conditions such as eczema might worsen. You may also notice more hair on your face and less on your scalp.
Therapies that address menopausal issues include:
If menopause is overwhelming you and your skin, together we can create an effective treatment plan that delivers noticeable results.
Two key facial muscles are recruited when we smile; the zygomaticus major which radiates from the corner of the mouth to the side of the face, and the orbicularis oculi around the eyes. When these work together, your face lights up with your own special brand of facial expression and a smile that defines you.
Excessive or incorrect use of anti-wrinkle treatments and fillers can negatively affect how these facial muscles work, creating unnatural expressions. At the Aesthetic Room, we work gently with you to soften your fine lines whilst keeping the movement, expression and shape of your face that makes you, YOU.
