Over the past few decades, scientific developments in the realm of skincare has meant that the products we buy in the shops now can be incredibly effective to help combat the signs of ageing. However, these products can only do so much to preserve your youthful looks before the inevitable, tell-tale signs of time set in.
Many women in their 40s, 50s and 60s are turning to non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments to help where skincare products cannot. These treatments will help rejuvenate their looks whilst still maintaining a natural appearance. This article serves to share the top treatments for mature women to shed years from their appearance.
Your Skin in Your 40s, 50s & 60s – What to Expect
Oestrogen stimulates the production of collagen and oil within the skin. Throughout the menopause, a woman’s oestrogen level will decrease by 90%, which means that the skin can become especially dry, and any fine or deep-set wrinkles will be exacerbated. With age, the fat that was evenly distributed in the face during one’s youth eventually loses volume, gathers, and shifts downward. This leads to sunken and saggy looking features where the fat, and therefore volume, has been lost in places such as the eyes, cheeks, lips, and mouth area. An increase in volume in the bottom half of the face due to the descension of fat often manifests itself in a ‘baggy’ looking chin, and the development of jowls. Due to the slowed turnover of cells, the skin also becomes thinner, lines deepen, and the tip of the nose tends to droop.
Nefertiti Neck Lift Treatment
The neck is one of the biggest indicators of age. We see many women, especially over the age of 40 come to us to treat this area. With time, on account of muscle activity and the effects of gravity, as well as a loss of fat above the neck, the skin becomes looser, thicker, and exaggerates the severity of the platysmal bands.
Luckily, there is an effective and non-invasive way of combating these effects with the use of botulinum toxin. By placing multiple injections of anti-wrinkle product along the lower jawline and along the plastysmal band muscles we can improve the definition of the jawline, relax the jowls, and provide an ‘upward lifting effect’ in the neck and jaw area. Treatments last on average 3-4 months and is often called the ‘Nefertiti neck lift’ which is named after the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, who lived during 14th Century BC and was well known for her distinct and elegant jawline.
The hands are an often-overlooked part of the body that can be one of the first indicators of maturity. Aging of the hands is often characterised by the loss of elasticity in the skin as well as the degeneration of the fat underneath the skin. Long-lasting hyaluronic acid dermal filler such as Radiesse can be used to restore the lost volume. This treatment will also lessen the appearance of veins, tendons, and bony structures. Thus, restoring the backs of your hands to their youthful and smooth appearance. This treatment will last up to around 12 months.
These lines originate from the corner of the mouth to the lower jaw and create angular shadows which can vary in length and depth. As with most visible signs of aging, marionette lines are often caused by a loss of volume due to atrophy of the fat that one once had in one’s youth.
By using different techniques to add dermal filler to this area, we can soften the harsh lines to restore some or all of this lost volume and appear to turn back the hands of time without the need for surgery. This can help lift the sides of the mouth, resulting in a ‘happier’ looking resting face.
Upper Face Botox
Smooth and youthful skin is always attractive in both men and women, with age and years of contracting these muscles by raising the eyebrows, frowning, or smiling, wrinkles will eventually set in. This is because each time a person uses a facial muscle, a groove forms under the surface of the skin. When a person is young, the skin springs back, but as they get older, the skin loses its flexibility. Springing back becomes harder and less frequent, resulting in more permanent grooves. In addition to this, wrinkles can be exacerbated by many external factors such as the sun, smoking, and dehydration.
Upper anti-wrinkle treatment relaxes the muscles in the forehead and surrounding areas. The reduced strength of these muscles helps minimise contractions and because of this, the lines are smoothed.
Different quantities of anti-wrinkle treatment can be administered to offer differing levels of ability to move the muscle after the treatment. Some people prefer a ‘frozen’ look, whilst others opt for a subtler result allowing them to still show expression. A good practitioner will listen to your desired results and treat you accordingly.
Smoker’s Lines / Perioral Sculpting
Smokers/perioral radial lines are fine wrinkles and lines on the upper and/or lower lip that extend from the edge of the lips outwards. This is caused by repeated contraction of the muscle surrounding the mouth, these lines are common for people as they age, but they are often exacerbated if you smoke as you will contract this muscle more often than non-smokers.
Anti-wrinkle botulinum toxin or dermal filler (or a combination of both) can be injected just outside of the lips to help soften these lines and help plump up the area to regain a smoother and more youthful mouth area.
