The options for rejuvenation treatments for the face and other areas of the body are too many to mention at length. Below is an overview of some of the possible non-surgical (minimally invasive or non-invasive) and surgical (invasive) treatments at Care to Bare that may help improve, reduce, or eliminate (in some cases) the signs of aging.
Face, Eyes, Nose
|There are so many non-invasive options for eliminating the signs of aging – wrinkles, fine lines, sunken cheeks, sagging skin – on the face. From AquaPeel (Signature Korean facial of Care to Bare) to Red Peel (special Korean chemical peel of Care to Bare), to VISS IPL Phototherapy treatment, to Multi-Polar Radio Frequency -all these may be used alone or in combination on a case-to-case basis. Each of these non-invasive treatments has less risk of complications and little or no downtime for clients – compared to a surgical face lift.Choosing the best cream for the eyes will depend on the condition you have. Whether the problem is dark circles around eyes, eye bags, or wrinkles, each will need a specific cream.Care to Bare has effective nutrition cream specialized for eye areas under its anti-wrinkle and anti-aging aging line, namely Mediblock Eye Nutrient Cream and Celgen Firming Eye Cream. Mediblock Eye Nutrient Cream provides moisture and nutrients to the skin under the eyes and also prevents wrinkle formation because it contains resveratrol, a component of grape fruit. Celgen Firming Eye Cream improves wrinkle and forms a moisturizing film around the eye areas providing moisture.
RadioFrequency like Care to Bare’s Dual Impact Face Slimming and Intragen may be used to decrease fats on the nasal folds and tighten the surface of the skin near your nose.
Radio Frequency or RF produces heat energy that can dissolve fats. In this process, heat is transmitted into the skin’s deep and shallow layers without harming the outer skin or causing burns. It has a firming, toning and tightening effect on the skin and muscle tissue, so even if you have sagging skin due to aging, cavitation will help.
IntraGen is safer to use because it employs Grid RF technology. Grid fractional radio frequency energy creates thermal grid shapes on the skin’s surface, as well as a thermal uniform zone in the upper dermis during RF emission. Through this, IntraGen protects the epidermis in order to prevent side effects that may happen when using other RF machines.
Doublo is a non-surgical treatment that uses HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime by using the body’s own healing response.
|Minimally invasive procedures are among the more popular trends now. These pertain to injectables, such as Regenox (special Botulinum toxins or Botox used in Care to Bare), dermal fillers, and even thread lifting. All these procedures will give you some small puncture wounds on specific sites where they need to rejuvenate. But they can be immediately covered or concealed with some make-up. For example, the forehead lines can easily be relaxed and minimize with some Regenox injection. Sagging cheeks due to aging may be easily and conveniently volumized with some dermal fillers. And lastly, these are effective for those who are concerned with a sagging jaw line, but do not want to have any surgical treatment.Dermal Fillers may be used to contour the nose into a more attractive shaoe. This procedure can add height to the bridge of the nose, or add more tip projection on the nose. These may be used in combination with neurotoxin which is injected on a particular muscle. It relaxes muscles on the lower side of the nose to give a thinner nose opening. A Fractional CO2 Laser may also be used to reduce the pore size and to smoothen the nose, giving it a more contoured look. (describe Hyaluronic Acid and Dermal filler)PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) can be used to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, reduce scarring, improve skin tone, pigmentation, wrinkles and promote a youthful appearance to the face. Once injected, the treatment works by temporarily putting the ageing process on hold.
Carboxytherapy is indicated for relaxed and thinned skin, dark bags under the eyes, localized fatty deposits, especially dewlaps.
Dark eye bags can be a consequence of bad circulation or genetic predisposition. After the carboxytherapy treatment, the deposited oxygen whitens the skin and the increased microcirculation makes this effect long-lasting. If at the same the fatty deposit in the dark bags under the eyes is treated, the gas is applied into the skin and under it into the fatty tissue. This is how the effect is achieved when it comes to skin quality and reduction in size of deposits under the eyes.
Regenox Botox uses neurotoxin injection to relax muscles and get rid of dynamic wrinkles and even to contour the face (defining the jaw, opening up the eyes, reshaping the brow).
Soft tissue fillers, hyaluronic acid fillers being the specialty of Care to Bare, effective and safe type of fillers, are used to re-inflate sunken areas due to fat loss or bone/ cartilage remodeling. Strategical lifting of sagging areas of the skin to re-contour the face to achieve the inverted triangle facial shape – the shape of a youthful face.
|Face lift, whether it is a full facelift or mini-facelift, is a surgical procedure that involves making incisions on the side of the face, near the ear area.It aims to remove excess skin that has become lax through the years. It uses an anchoring suture to tighten the facial skin to improve the signs of aging on the face and neck. It’s a good option if you want a dramatic change and where results of non-surgical facial rejuvenation do not satisfy you. Of course, this will require a downtime of not less than a week. This invasive procedure requires some laboratory work up and medical clearance; hence a good consultation with your surgeon is a requirement.Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin around the eyes.
Upper blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the upper eyelids, correcting drooping eyelids for elderly patients. It is also done for members of certain Asian races, such as Mongolians and Koreans because they lack a crease on the eyelid. Surgical creation of a double eyelid will give them wider opening of their eyes so they can see better. Some Asians want this surgery because they believe it makes their eyes more expressive – and allows them to apply mascara more easily.
Lower Blepharosplasty is a procedure done to get rid of eye bags or puffy eyes.
Rhinoplasty (a nose lift or a nose job) is done to create a higher, more slender nose bridge. It can also correct the nasal profile by eliminating the bumps. The nasal tip may also be modified if it is too big or upturned. Nostrils that are too large or too wide may also be corrected. The surgeon will have to ensure that the nose is modified to be in proportion with the rest of the face.
Brow Lift surgery can smoothen wrinkles (including frown lines and vertical creases) on the forehead or lift a sagging brow. Eyebrows may be raised so they look more youthful.
Eyelash surgery may require transplanting hair from the scalp to the eyelash area. This is done to create fuller lashes for those with thin ones.
|Meso Scalp Up Treatment is a special cosmetic procedure removing the useless and harmful materials such as surface-active agents, fragrances, pigments, and synthetic antiseptics, those of which can cause negative effect on the scalp’s health. It does biological stimulation to promote hair growth. It is synchronized with special treatments like Dermapen, Mesoroller, Microdermabrasion, or Iontophoresis to promote the quick transfer and transdermal absorption of active materials to the scalp.||PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is injected on the scalp with the use of micro needling technology to stimulate hair growth. This procedure requires weekly visits with the dermatologist but it has no downtime so it is much recommended for those with active lifestyle who needs to go back to their activities right away.Carboxytherapy in which carbon-dioxide is used for therapeutic purposes can provide better oxygenation to the scalp preventing hair loss.||Hair transplantation taking hair and follicles from a thick, non-balding area of the scalp and implanting these to the bald area. So far, this produces the most satisfactory result for solving baldness.

As a non-invasive procedure, it requires that the patient exercise and stick to a balanced diet to go with all different procedures for abdominal beautification.||Carboxytherapy is indicated for relaxed and thinned skin like visible and broad stretch marks for thighs and tummy. Sterile medical CO2 gas is injected into the skin or fatty tissue and since it is a natural gas created by our body during usual metabolic processes, there is no potential for allergies. The application is performed by a special device, called SkinSelf, with strict control of the pressure and amount of gas applied during the treatment. The patient can feel a mild pressure and immediately after the treatment the treated area remains mildly red due to increased blood and oxygen flow. During carboxytherapy, vascular endothelial growth factors are concentrated, thus, new microcirculation is created, tissue lymph drainage is increased, collagen production is increased. Its application into the fatty tissue, breaks down and melts fat cells.||Surgery called abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck may be done if the abdominal area is sagging due to lack of skin elasticity and muscle tone. This is usually done as a purely cosmetic procedure. It can make the abdominal area more slender, firmer and tighter through removal of excess fat (liposuction) and skin.Liposuction is for clients with big tummy and thighs that are not due to muscles but rather due to fats.
