Beauty Treatments You Should Be Doing by 40
Posted September 20, 2017 in Facial Procedures
We would all like to think we can be young forever. But even if some of us feel we have hit the genetic lottery, there are still some aging indicators we are unable to stop in its tracks. Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases may develop no matter how healthy a person is, or their biology. If you are nearing 40 years old and have not adopted a regular skin care regimen, it is never too late to start taking action.
Ideally, we all should have been incorporating healthy habits since we were in our 20s, but some of us may have been leading busy lives. As we get older, we might see that the unhealthy habits we practiced when we were younger are starting to show now that we are older. There are some beauty treatments you can put in place today to diminish the appearance of aging.
It’s Time to Create a Younger Version of You!
You can’t jump into a time portal and reverse years of aging, but you can change your beauty routine today! Some of you may already know the general rules for younger skin after 40, but there are also cosmetic and beauty treatments you can add to your lifestyle for a younger, more rejuvenated version of yourself:
- Skin care treatments: Many skin care treatments, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials, are designed for all skin types. Men and women over 40 can target age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, loss of skin elasticity, and sun damaged skin.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: Most people may be apprehensive about undergoing injectables to target aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular and safe injectable treatments that work by inhibiting the movement of facial muscles that cause the appearance of wrinkles between the brows, crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead creases.
- Injectable fillers: Injections such as BOTOX® Cosmetic are only designed to smooth dynamic wrinkles. Someone who has volume loss might be an ideal patient for dermal fillers, which work by adding fullness to the face to correct nasolabial folds, wrinkles along the cheeks, and smile lines around the lips. Dr. Dubrow offers a variety of injectable fillers to create an individualized treatment every patient.
- Laser procedures: Several people suffer from skin imperfections that cannot be targeted with at-home treatments. Laser procedures are excellent options for patients who want smoother skin that appears youthful and refreshed. An FX CO₂ laser is used to improve the tone and texture of the skin to target fine lines, wrinkles, and deep frown lines.
Should You Consider Plastic Surgery?
Beauty treatments and non-surgical treatments, such as injectables and laser procedures, might be the perfect option for someone who wants to improve signs of aging, but for some people, they may not be enough. When is it time for an individual to consider undergoing a surgical procedure such as eyelid surgery or facelift surgery? If someone has significant fine lines and wrinkles or sagging, loose skin, they may be better suited for surgery. These patients should be in good health, have realistic expectations, and are willing to take the surgical process seriously. A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Dubrow can evaluate your facial anatomy and goals to help you decide if you are ready for a surgical procedure.
