Reversing the Ageing Triangle
The facial triangle is beautiful in your youth — your full cheeks forming the top, with your chin at the point. However, as we get older, the triangle reverses. Jowls form at the chin level. It’s unsettling when we realise it’s happened. Gravity is at work, but also facial bones and facial muscles are changing.
Fortunately, there’s an easy all-natural way to reverse these signs of facial ageing.
Cosmetic surgeons think of the face in terms of a triangle. In youth, the base of the triangle is at the cheeks and the point is at the chin. As we get older, the triangle reverses. The jowls form, which means that the base of the triangle is now at the chin. The tip goes upwards towards the nose.
Aesthetics experts used to believe that this facial ageing was mainly a sagging of the soft tissues of the face, caused by gravity. Recent research has shown that facial bones are also involved in facial ageing. As we grow older, the facial muscles thin down. This puts less strain on the bones, causing the bones to become weaker.
We see this on the face this as flattening of the cheek bones.
In addition, the area between the nose and chin of your face decreases. This loss is a major contributor to facial ageing. The skin around the face and neck will sag. These are the signs of facial ageing.
Non-surgical solution to reverse signs of ageing
Surgery was once the only answer to reverse the triangle. However, it was not a long-term solution as the soft tissues would sag again.
Today we have a non-surgical solution – the Oralift facial rejuvenation device. This device can reverse the triangle and seem to reverse the ageing process.
With the Oralift facial rejuvenation device, we see reversal of the ageing triangle. The Oralift device can produce dramatic results if significant lower facial height has been lost.
Patients have reported that Oralift has been very helpful in repairing sun damage and lightening their facial skin.
What is Oralift?
Oralift is a device that rejuvenates the facial skin naturally. Oralift seems to reverse the ageing process.
In the 1990s, Dr Mohindra noticed that using a traditional device to treat patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), their facial muscles changed – the lower part of the face got a “lift.”
“When people start looking at you and wondering, ‘What have you had done?’, that’s the Oralift effect.”
– Dr. Nick Mohindra
A study in the British Dental Journal showed that patients looked between 5 and 20 years younger after using this device. Since then, Dr Mohindra has refined the device, and developed today’s simple but remarkable appliance – the Oralift.
How Oralift works
The Oralift is a tailor-made device that fits over your lower teeth. Oralift seems to work by using two principles: the healing capacity of the body and the body’s remarkable ability to adapt to environmental change.
The muscles of the face when relaxed usually keep the lips together and the teeth slightly apart. The little space between the upper and lower teeth is called the “free way space” and is usually 1-3mm.
At this relaxed or resting position there is a minimal amount of electrical activity occurring in the facial muscles to maintain muscle tone.
When you wear the Oralift appliance, it separates the teeth by a larger amount than the original “free way space”. The muscles on the face immediately “realise” that this device is something that cannot be chewed or eaten. The muscles therefore adapt by altering their fibres to create a new resting length and a new “free way space”.
The science of Oralift
Dr. N K Mohindra, pioneer who developed the Oralift device, believes that this process involves greater protein activity for which muscles need more oxygen. To achieve this, any capillaries which have been damaged due to ageing are naturally repaired.
Furthermore, Dr. Mohindra believes this repair process is initiated by the muscles releasing a growth factor (Mechano Growth Factor, which was discovered by Professor G. Goldspink), which triggers the body’s healing process — thus counteracting the harmful effects of facial ageing.
In virtually all cases that he has treated, Dr. Mohindra has found that his patients have reported improvements in their skin after using Oralift. With further research, Oralift could become the first choice of skin care for people age 50 and over.
“Dr. Mohindra’s Oralift shows dramatic results on the restoration of youthful facial contours. His technique is simple, easy to use and, above all, totally risk free.”
