Webcams are our mirror: how to prevent digital aging

Countering digital aging is possible. More than ever, however, in this last year of the pandemic, where staying connected is the only way to socialize, it is essential to prevent premature aging from PCs, smartphones and tablets. Aesthetic medicine interventions are thus increasingly in demand and face improvement treatments, long postponed, now become projects to be carried out in a short time.

Eyes on the gaze because this is the area on which attention is focused. In the world of connected non-stop what are the solutions to counter the digital aging and limit the damage of the electromagnetic waves emitted by the screens that increase the temperature of the fabrics, causing them to overheat and favoring the evaporation of the water contained in them. This results in an increase in skin dryness and a deterioration of collagen fibers, at the expense of turgor and tissue elasticity.

If we add that the high-resolution webcams and ultra-fast internet connections act as a “mirror” that amplifies our defects, in particular of wrinkles, scars and the brightness of our skin that has “turned off” over time, then we are faced with a phenomenon that always seeks the solution, or solutions, to the problem in technology.

Fast and non-invasive aesthetic medicine interventions today help us to prevent and counteract the digital aging.

In this last year, new, annoying side effects are affecting our skin, in particular altering the appearance of the face. This is subject to inflammatory phenomena of the skin related to the prolonged use of electronic devices and masks: thus arises the need to intervene and eliminate various skin manifestations, such as wrinkles, keratoses, spots and small ones in fibromatosis“, says Professor Antonino Di Pietro, dermatologist and director of the” Vita Cutis “Dermoclinic Institute, also in collaboration with the San Donato Group’s Palazzo della Salute in Milan.”The requests for intervention have increased and almost doubled the number of male patients who now represent 20% of requests. To date and traditionally, thanks to the CO laser2 divided, it is possible to intervene on various facial imperfections, including the micro wrinkles of the face and those in the area near the eyes that we notice more and more in front of the webcams and with the use of the mask. In my center, which boasts a staff of over 25 dermatologists, we use state-of-the-art technologies such as the Smartxide device2 which also acts on the pigmented part, giving brightness to the skin. The laser activates the stimulation of keratinocytes, the cells of the epidermis, thus obtaining a natural improvement in the texture of the skin and at the dermal level it induces the production of new collagen fibers for skin rejuvenation “.

To obtain better results it is necessary to have “patience” and manage some post-treatment effects with periods ranging from a few hours to a few weeks, depending on the treatment. Technology now offers a complete range of solutions for both “patients” and “impatient”.

“In particular, thanks to Vivace, the radio frequency microneedling device that consists of the combination of a” mechanical “effect produced by micro needles and a” thermal “effect by the radio frequency transmitted through the micro needles, results are obtained in short and long-term, with highly tolerable sessions and very short recovery times. Thanks to a “gentle” stimulation of the natural production of collagen and the deeper cells of the dermal tissue, the treatment is effective in improving wrinkles on the face and also in the neck, giving tone to the skin”, Di Pietro notes.

The aging of the population, bad life habits and bad postures using digital means are important causes of premature skin aging. However, thanks to technology, today, with increasingly advanced devices, we can counteract the premature appearance of wrinkles and skin relaxation, for a longer and more natural youth.
