Sophie Hilbrand looks into the dilemma: is aging something that you should accept or are you better off doing something about it with Botox or fillers?
Wrinkles do not necessarily make you older
Sophie undergoes a skin consultation at Kazem Aesthetica. There she discovers that it’s not necessarily the wrinkles that make you look older. It’s the weaker skin, the rougher skin, enlarged pores and liver spots that make you look older.
The true skin age of Sophie
Sun damage, stress, the wrong skincare products and sleep deprivation increase the natural aging process of the skin. The Visia facial scan measures Sophie’s true age based on wrinkles, the structure of the connective tissue, discoloration and enlarged pores. That was definitely a scare.
In 5 years time
What’s special is that the facial scan also shows the currently invisible skin damage such as wrinkles and pigmentation spots. Unprotected sunbathing causes immediate deep damage to the skin, but won’t be visible for years. Sophie gets a realistic image of how she’ll look if she doesn’t do something about it.
Sophie after a treatment
A 3D animation of Sophie’s face shows what she’ll look like with and without laser treatment. This is the Clear + Brilliant laser, a soft laser that equalizes the skin without spots and large pores. The advantage of this laser treatment is that it treats the cause of skin aging. To compare, a filler only camouflages the problem. The Clear + Brilliant laser repairs the structure of the skin by repairing the collagen and elastin, giving a naturally younger look.
