The Pyramid of Age, The Triangle of Youth

What is the pyramid of age and how does this happen?

The myriad of signs of aging may be seen as an “Inverted Triangle”, which is quite the opposite to the “Triangle of Youth”. A youthful face is one of high cheekbones, full cheeks, and a well-defined jawline, facial features are defined and well contoured. Whereas in an aging face, the cheeks are flatter and jowls start to appear, due to the decreased collagen production. The “Triangle of Youth” features:

  • Volume and support
  • Elasticity and structure
  • Muscle balance

The “Pyramid of Age” unfortunately consists of:

  • Volume Loss
  • Laxity
  • Muscle imbalance

Why do we age?

The aging process can begin as early as our 20’s, but this occurs at different ages for each person. This is dependent on a number of factors including:

  • Genetics and cultural factors
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Sun exposure
  • Sleep
  • Physical activity
  • Emotional well-being

How do we age and what are the signs?

Wrinkles and fine lines can start to appear quite early. Volume loss can result in flattened cheeks, sagging skin hollowness under the eyes, and fullness around the jawline. Replacing this loss of volume in the mid-face can help to create a more youthful healthy look. Other common features associated with aging:

  • Double-chin
  • Sagging skin
  • Muscle tone
  • Descending facial fat-pads
  • Age-related bone loss

How can we treat aging? How can we restore the “Triangle of Youth”?

  • Botulinum Toxin (Bocouture and Botox) treats muscle imbalances
  • Dermal Fillers or (PRP) Platelet Rich Plasma targets volume or structure loss
  • Ultherapy, Radiofrequency or PDO Threads are recommended for skin laxity
  • Laser treatments, Mesotherapy, and skin peels will improve skin quality and texture

In our clinic, we offer all the very best non-surgical treatments to help you retain and regain your “Triangle of Youth”.

Aesthetics and Fashion – we are obsessed… who isn’t?

What is Aesthetics? Aesthetics is the nature of beauty, art, and a taste for all that is beautiful. It examines aesthetic values often expressed through judgments of taste. Aesthetics covers both natural and artificial sources and this differs from country to country and the trends that are popular at the time.

Ever wondered which country has the highest beauty standards? South Korea. A global survey undertaken by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons listed the highest rate of cosmetic surgeries in South Korea. Korean beauty standards prioritise a slim figure, small face, v-shaped jaw, pale skin, straight eyebrows, flawless skin, and large eyes.

Whereas for example, in Africa, standards of beauty are very different. It is about being curvaceous and voluptuous. This is celebrated and makes women more desirable, it also is defined as a greater ability to bare healthy children as appose to thinner women.

Outside of cultural beauty standards, what we consider beautiful or aesthetically pleasing can be very different from the next person. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder!

What is Fashion? Fashion is a form of self-expression and autonomy of a particular period and place, in the specific context, of clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyles, and body posture. The term “trending”, implies a look that is defined by the fashion industry. Everything that is considered fashionable is available and popularised via the media and online platforms.

How we present ourselves shows who we are and says a lot about our personality. Life is all about first impressions, and the same applies in the world of business, branding, and social media. Do you generally like bright or dark colours or everything in between? The colours we wear can also show our mood or for e.g. be associated with a particular event or celebration.

Gone are the days when most of our focus was on great makeup, we also want to have great skin and bodies too. The advancements of aesthetics and technology have catered for this change, making plastic/ cosmetic surgery extremely popular and it is no longer taboo to get things done.

Do you feel that spending money on aesthetics and fashion is a part of taking care of yourself? Is it necessary for our daily lives?

Experts believe that how we feel about ourselves determines our success, and this then contributes to our mental health and general well-being.

We all love getting something done or buying a new outfit, don’t we? How does it make you feel? Do you feel more confident, beautiful, and happy when you are looking good and feeling good?
