The transformation from young skin to older skin can be stressful for some people. You may start to notice a loss in volume and elasticity. Your skin my discolour and a few fine lines may appear. The products you used in your 20s and 30s may have worked wonders before, but they may now seem less effective.
In your 30s your skin goes through a transition, and it is the time when most people start to see the first signs of aging. The 40s is when these changes start to look more prominent.
However, these decades can look better than ever, with a large number of aesthetic treatments that can focus on noticeable signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, and pigmentations without the need for cosmetic surgery.
Here are our top 4 aesthetic treatments for women in their 40s.
Because the body’s collagen and elastin production decreases with age, you may begin to notice sagging, reduced elasticity, and less volume in the face, neck, and body. For women, the hormonal changes that accompany menopause can further impact this process.
Dermal fillers can be used to help plump and smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles. A good area for treatment is also around the cheek and jawline as this minimises sagging and the appearance of jowls. It can be hugely transformative.
The results are both fast and effective — but maintenance is needed every six months to two years depending on the type of filler and area being treated.
Botox, also known as the botulinum toxin injection, is the most popular cosmetic procedure worldwide. Botulinum toxin derived from ‘purified’ neurotoxin produced by bacteria, temporarily block the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. In other words, botulinum toxin relaxes the muscle temporarily to smoothen the overlying skin.
It is performed to treat wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead, frown and neck. If placed at correct points, it gives a lifting effect to the face as well (‘liquid facelift’). The procedure is fast (10 minutes), simple and has a very high rate of patient satisfaction.
Plasma fibroblast therapy targets fibroblasts. These are collagen and protein-producing cells in the dermis, the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. Fibroblasts play an important role in helping skin wounds heal as well as maintaining skin firmness and tightness.
Plasma fibroblast therapy uses a pen-like device that discharges a high-frequency electric current to small areas of the skin. The plasma tip doesn’t directly touch the skin, but instead releases a targeted current just above the skin. The hot current creates small holes, or micro-injuries, in the skin’s layer.
The thermal disruption, or heat damage, from plasma fibroblast therapy:
breaks down proteins in the skin
encourages tissue regeneration
stimulates fibroblast activity
causes tissue contraction (tightening)
Opting for regular facials is necessary to keep your skin looking young and glamorous. The benefits of facials promote collagen development and massage cell regeneration, which prevents fine lines and wrinkles on your face, giving you younger-looking skin.
