Why your face ages and how Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery can help
Many factors contribute to facial ageing. This can include gravity, subcutaneous fat redistribution and loss, hormonal imbalance, excessive sun exposure, diet, and smoking. Other environmental factors that have shown to affect facial appearance include mental stress, work habits, drug abuse, and disease. Through treatments such as fillers and non-surgical facelifts, we can combat the effects of aging on your face and skin.
What’s happening under the surface?
Studies show that normal functions in the skin may drop to 50% by the time we reach middle age. This deterioration creates considerable change under the skin’s surface. Not surprisingly, these internal changes impact how a person looks on the outside. As a person ages, the blood flow to the skin slows. This means the important nutrients and hydration needed for cell renewal and healing aren’t available.
- Additionally, the body’s production of the following important substances decreases:
- Hyaluronic acid (creates fullness and retains moisture)
- Lipids (hold in moisture and protects the skin from external impurities)
- Collagen (provides structural support to the skin)
- Elastin (allows the skin to stretch and return back to normal)
What does that mean for our skin?
As we are all aware, the wear and tear our bodies take over time cause multiple unappealing effects on our appearance. Some of these include:
- Deeper wrinkles
- Thin/fragile looking skin
- Hollow cheeks
- Corners of the mouth droop down
- Dry, rough skin
- Saggy face shape
- Loose neck skin
- Wider, slacker jawline (jowls)
Any one of these changes can dramatically influence how we look. Combined, they alter a person’s entire face shape. This not only impacts how people see us physically, but also how they perceive our personality. As the face shape shifts downward and the skin looks dull, we appear more serious and stressed. Therefore, people assume, we are less happy. For those who feel vivacious on the inside, this emotional impact can be devastating.
We can help
Invigorate your appearance with minimal downtime
As we approach middle age, a transition takes place. Our glowing, youthful appearance starts to fade; at some point, it no longer matches the energy we feel on the inside. Although aging is a natural process we all go through, the external implications aren’t easy to accept. We have a range of services to help combat the effects of aging:
Injectable Filler Treatments
Dermal fillers are a cost-effective and reliable treatment for smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume to the skin, especially on the face.
Fillers contain proteins and sugars that mimic the natural functions of youthful skin that contour the face and create firmness and elasticity.
Non-surgical face lift
This procedure accentuates the features that are associated with a beautiful face: high cheekbones, full cheeks, smooth skin and defined jawline.
V2 Beauty Booster
Hydrate skin, & minimize fine lines through a painless procedure that micro-needles the skin at a very high intensity.

The first and only non-surgical injectable solution for submental fat, or more commonly referred to as a double chin.

We offer laser hair removal for just about any area of the body including the face, underarms, neck, back, shoulders, legs, bikini line, and many others
Depigmentation therapies that tackle Melasma while regulating melanin overproduction, controlling the reappearance of new spots in the long term.
