The most annoying problems at this age are volume loss and wrinkles caused by movement. You will begin to really notice crow’s feet and dark circles around your eyes, and the “dreaded 11’s” or frown lines. Even more disconcerting is waking up one morning, taking a glance in the mirror, and seeing what looks like “instant aging”- lines and wrinkles as well as age (sun) spots seem to appear overnight!
In office procedures should now be routine as this is the time to begin “serious” anti-aging treatments. Read on to find out what is recommended to stop the clock of aging in your 40’s!
Dr. Fiona Wright’s Tip:
Many people are now aware of the great benefits of Botox/Dysport and Facial Fillers for their aging concerns. But what many do not know, is that with using advanced injection techniques, I can create a gentle lift throughout the face -which will make a dramatic improvement to your overall contour, bringing forth a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Facial Fillers (such as Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm) can smooth away wrinkles and folds due to volume loss and can take years off your appearance! As the face ages, our cheeks flatten, eyes hollow out and jowls are prominent. Facial experts now focus on rebalancing these volume changes. With precision placement, I am able to plump up sunken skin, re-contour cheeks, lift jowls, and reducing deep facial creases.
Botox is famous for it’s ability to lessen frown lines and is fast becoming as well known for its ability to create a “lift” in the brow and neck and jowl area. Yes, it’s temporary, but once you’ve experienced it, you’ll love it! For some, a lowered brow and sagging skin is pure genetics. For others, it’s simply part of aging and experiencing the worries of life. No matter what the reason, if you can consciously raise your brows, or tighten your jawline – you can get a “lift effect” from Botox.
People in their 40’s seem to be discovering this procedure as the average age of Botox and facial fillers patients are 40-59.
Since age spots and blood vessels will also become more visible, medical grade chemical peels and fractional laser can also turn back the hands of time. Equally important is that you don’t try to cut corners by getting treatments in non-medical facilities. Instead, always seek out a personal consultation with a doctor who specializes in anti-aging treatments.
