Skin in your fortiesPosted on: 11th July 2015
Hitting forty can be a
shock to the system – but this transitional decade doesn’t have to mean you
fall victim of the unwelcome signs of ageing. Whether you have a
well-established skincare regime or you’re looking to turn back the clock,
there are plenty of things you can do to take action.
The Causes of Ageing
Tell tale signs of sun damage begin to appear; uneven
pigmentation and broken capillaries being common concerns.
Fine wrinkles and open pores begin to appear, as collagen and
elastin begin to deteriorate. Late nights and stress take a more obvious toll,
particularly in the mornings. You may start to notice reduced fullness in your
face – particularly beneath the eyes and in the cheeks – leaving skin with less
support so that it appears to sag a little. Any changes in weight, particularly
weight loss tend to have an aging effect on the face. If you have begun to
notice these tell-tale signs of ageing don’t fret, it’s never too late to
repair the damage.
Fighting the signs of ageing that occur around the eyes is a top
priority for women in their forties. It’s for this reason that the non-surgical
eyelift has become so popular – especially among those who don’t want more
A combination of both botulinum toxin injections and dermal
fillers, the procedure works to effectively lift drooping brows (by relaxing
the muscles in the forehead) and ‘fill in’ the hollow troughs that appear
beneath the eyes.
For women in their forties who have begun to notice a loss of
volume in their face – particularly around the cheeks and mouth – dermal
fillers can be particularly effective.
Most dermal fillers are made from sterile gels that contain
hyaluronic acid – a natural sugar found in the skin which binds to water
molecules in order to help plump it. Filling in lost fullness whilst smoothing
out lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers work with the skin as a replacement for
the collagen lost through age. Done carefully, the desired affects can be
natural and with a more youthfulness added to the face.
Another latest treatment that can be done is Restylane
Skinboosters, whereby very small measured microinjections of HA based dermal
fillers are deposited into the deeper parts of the Skin. A course of three is
recommended to achieve a smoother,hydrated skin. The results are very natural.
Since the turnover of surface skin cells known as keratinocytes,
slows down as we approach our forties and treatments that encourage the
turnover of these cells can be helpful to restore a more youthful bloom.
Treatments such as chemical peels- superficial or medium depth, medical
needling or skin boosters from the dermal filler ranges will help with this.
Finally, it is time to consider using skin care that includes
active ingredients to combat the aging process. There is no substitute for the
advice given and skin care prescribed by qualified professionals.
And lastly a Moisturiser with a minimum SPF 30 is recommended to
prevent DNA damage that causes the skin to age!
