Inauguration of AntiClock By Prof R K Sharma
-- One day you look at yourself hard and wonder how time has changed you but you don’t realize that the aging clock starts ticking from the day you are born. We are in a continuous state of decline as the time passes. But reversing the age clock is now only one personal decision and few minutes of cosmetic surgeon’s efforts away. From something as basic as skin peels to more specialized treatment such as Botox and Filler injections, the all new AntiClock-Age Reversal Clinic and Medispa has these anti aging and skin care solutions introduced under one roof. This exclusive Age reversal clinic and Medispa, started by leading Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon of India, Dr K M Kapoor, is one of its kinds in India. Prof RK Sharma, Head, Dep’t of Plastic Surgery, PGIMER, Chandigarh inaugurated this clinic recently.
“There has been a gradual shift in people’s choice from getting ‘more beautiful’ to ‘retaining youth’ for longer period with the help of cosmetic surgeries and procedures. After a particular age, people are comfortable with their looks which stand for their individual identity and rather than changing their looks drastically, they would go for the procedures which keep them looking younger. This was the whole idea of starting ‘AntiClock’
to focus exclusively on antiaging services unlike run of the mill beauty clinics.” commented Dr K M Kapoor.
“Botox has become the most popular cosmetic procedure in India in last 2 years. This is the fastest growing segment in medispa services as more and more people, among great Indian middle class, want to get rid of their wrinkles accumulated over the years. Currently men and women between the ages of 40 and 55 years old are the most common users of Botox. But gradually Botox is becoming more popular in 30- 40 age group as more people are realizing its potential in delaying the appearance of wrinkles on the face. ” said Dr Kapoor. Latest trends like Baby Botox, wherein patients can control the final outcome of their look, as the doses are given in more than one sitting over few weeks would be hall mark of ‘AntiClock’
. Besides lot of attention has been given to make the experience of Botox at ‘Anticlock’
a pain free one, with the help of world’s finest needles, dermal chiller and use of skin numbing creams.
The popularity of cosmetic filler injections like Juvederm has made it one of the most opted for procedures at ‘AntiClock’
. The ageing process sees most people lose volume from the face – from around the eyes, the upper cheeks, cheekbones, sides of the mouth and nose-to-mouth lines. To help negate this ageing look, people are turning to facial fillers to help plump up their faces and make them look younger. Filler injection use for lip augmentation is becoming popular also as lips tend to become thinner with age. Combination treatment with Filler and Botox injection, also known as Liquid Facelift, gives excellent relaxing and rejuvenating effect to the face.
Mesotherapy, for dissolving fat pockets (Lipodissolve)
, for hair growth (Mesohair) and for facial rejuvenation (Mesoglow), is another latest and exciting modality available at ‘AntiClock’
. Besides this, laser treatments for hair removal, pigmentation and skin rejuvenation are also available. Skin surface treatments like Spot Dermabrasion, Microdermabrasion and Chemical peels at ‘Anticlock’
make skin look fresh and blemish free. People are increasingly opting for radio frequency skin tightening techniques at ‘AntiClock’
in addition to Botox and fillers to create and maintain a youthful look. RF energy stimulates collage production in response to heat energy. One of the major benefits of these treatments is that there are no real discernible signs or scars and the downtime and recovery is minimal. “It is going to be a one stop place for all antiaging, skin and hair treatments.”
said Dr K M Kapoor.
Another important facility at ‘AntiClock’
shortly would be use of stem cells harvested from your own body for skin rejuvenation and skin firming treatments. In this technique, a small quantity of fat or skin is taken from patient’s body and sent to the lab for autologous stem cell culture. After 2 weeks, the grown stem cells are received and injected in areas of face which need rejuvenation. Although the procedure remains expensive yet it is finding many takers in India.
As Anti aging cosmetic surgeries like Face-lift, Neck-lift, Blepharoplasty, breast lift, thigh lift etc are getting more popular with time; Dr K M Kapoor will provide consultation facility for theses as well as other cosmetic surgery procedures at the clinic. Also in the pipeline are ‘Diet Clinic’ and ‘Stress Management Clinic’, starting shortly at ‘AntiClock’
The societal norms about the alteration of physical appearance with Cosmetic procedures are changing very rapidly in India. More and more Indians would like to have looks medically altered to look better and younger. The increasingly widespread use and acceptability of Botox, Fillers and skin care treatments is an example of how use of various medical techniques to alter our appearance is becoming an accepted norm in our society and ‘Anticlock’
is a small step in this direction to fulfill rising aspirations of many Indians to stay young forever.
