Following the “Bird Box Challenge”, and the “Top Nine Photos Of The Year Challenge”, the most recent Facebook challenge which went viral just about a week ago called the “10-Year Challenge” has already gotten more than 5 million participating, as we speak.
Conspiracy theories including Facebook using this challenge as a way of data-mining for facial recognition are plenty, but for fun’s sake, let’s just view the challenge as a harmless meme and see just how hard did aging hit you.
Participating in this challenge is easy – you simply share 2 photos of youself, 10 years apart, side by side, and post it on your instagram or Facebook account with the #10YearChallenge hashtag.
In case you still didn’t know, celebrities, in particular, love this challenge. It IS essentially an excuse to let the world know if you haven’t aged a day (alongside breezy captions that maintaining your skin’s elasticity requires zero work).
How To Wing The #10YearChallenge
But we live in the real world and aging hits everyone (maybe except Reese Witherspoon or Nick Cannon). If the 10 (or even 20) years have caught up with you, here’s what you can do to wing it.
Youth Elixirs – Trinity Facelift
Aging skin typically looks thinner, as collagen production drops from as early as the mid twenties. Non-invasive facelifts trick the skin into producing collagen through a clever, productive wound healing response, without any downtime. The Trinity Facelift is a combined procedure that uses Ultherapy and Thermage which stimulate collagen-rich layers of the skin over the next 3 to 6 months, ensuring a subtle but noticeable 3D face lifting effect.
Thermage uses radiofrequency to tighten the earlier stages of sagging skin of the face and the neck, and Ultherapy dives 4.5mm deep beneath the skin to reach the sweet spot of contouring – the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer.
Jawline Magic – Infinity V-Lift
We are used to spending money in our quest for flawless skin, but one of the best ways to stay youthful looking is to streamline your jawline. Every jawline is different, but if it’s not a problem that can only be solved by a surgeon or a good orthodontist, then it is usually a fat or a droopy problem. Lipodissolve is a less invasive alternative to remove excess fat from the hated double-chin, involving a series of fat-reducing microinjections. To lift droopy skin, the Infinity V-Lift uses facial threads to reposition skin to its previous youthful position for a slightly more profound lift compared to the Trinity Facelift. Rest assured that facial threads are made of the same materials used in surgical sutures and are broken down naturally by the body over time.
