Which cosmetic treatments you should get in your 50s
In your fifties, a combination of volume loss, collagen loss, wrinkles and sagging skin all contribute to give you the appearance of ageing. While surgery begins to become a reasonable option, non surgical cosmetic treatments with injectables is still a powerful option that when used correctly can give you a rejuvenated appearance. The most common treatments used to rejuvenate people in their fifties include:
- anti wrinkle injections to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown and around the eyes;
- dermal fillers to restore lost volume, improving the facial contours;
- collagen stimulating fillers to restore lost volume and collagen levels, improving the quality of the facial tissues;
- thread lifting to lift sagging skin, restoring more youthful facial contours and boosting collagen levels.
Anti wrinkle injections in your 50s
Anti wrinkle injections are a great treatment option for those in their fifties who want to refresh their appearance. Anti-wrinkle treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles on the frown lines, forehead and around the eyes, can lift sagging mouth corners, and reduce the appearance of vertical neckbands. Treatment takes only a few minutes, has little discomfort and no downtime, and results typically last from 3-4 months on average.
Anti wrinkle injections also have preventative benefits. Having anti-wrinkle treatment regularly can slow down the progression of wrinkles, meaning you can appear to age slower.
Many people who are interested in anti-wrinkle injections are afraid of looking fake and frozen. When performed correctly this should not be the case. A conservative approach is always preferable, and the strength of the treatment can be increased in future treatments if you want a stronger effect.
It is critical that you also look after the skin itself, as anti-wrinkle injections are primarily working on the muscle that creases the skin, rather than the skin itself. Using sun protection, good skincare, and having regular skin tightening treatments can all be combined to comprehensively and naturally rejuvenate the skin.
Dermal fillers in your 50s
Dermal fillers are an important component of facial rejuvenation treatments in your fifties. Loss of bone and fat volume is one of the biggest things that makes you look older in this age group.
Dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume. Treatment should focus on simply restoring volume in the areas that it has been lost. Collagen stimulating injections are an alternative type of dermal filler that restores lost volume, and also stimulates the production of collagen to rejuvenate the facial tissues. Importantly, unlike normal dermal filler, collagen stimulating filler cannot be reversed (although both are temporary), so it is important to understand and accept this quality of collagen stimulating injections before deciding whether or not they are right for you.
Common areas that dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume for people in their fifties are:
- temple hollowing;
- under eye hollowing;
- forehead flattening;
- cheek volume loss;
- chin recession;
- the backs of the hands;
Treating the face as a whole is the secret to achieving natural and elegant results that help you look more refined, refreshed and rejuvenated. This is known as a full face rejuvenation or total face rejuvenation.
