If you’re like us, you’re probably amazed at how much the body has a mind of its own, especially as time passes. When we’re young we think we are completely in control of our beauty. We may even take our skin for granted. Then, come middle age our whole perspective changes. We’re grateful for days without eye bags. We realize our smile lines are here to stay (not just when we’re smiling.) And we begin to think fondly of the days when we rolled out of bed looking fabulous, despite a past-midnight bedtime.
At Honolulu Med Spa we see patients of all ages and believe us, there is always something you can do to improve your complexion and feel happier about your skin right now, no matter what age you are. We’ve put together this simple two-part guide (see Part 1 here) to introduce you to your biggest skin care challenges at every decade of life, and your best options for overcoming them.
Without further ado, here’s your skin care report for your 40s, 50s and beyond.
Skincare in Your 40s
Fabulous at 40, right? What a great age to be! You’ve played, you’ve worked, and you still have so much living to do.
If you haven’t paid your skin enough attention until now, book a complimentary skincare consultation with a Honolulu MedSpa skincare expert and get a tailored age-prevention and skin restoration plan in action. It won’t cost you a dime to get an assessment and it may just give you a brighter outlook on the coming ten years. If you have been a diligent skincare student during your “younger” years, it’s very likely you are still getting carded. If this is the case, reward yourself with monthly facial.
Throughout this decade, lines will become more defined and the skin will inevitably begin to lose elastin and collagen which equals volume loss. In fact, at this point, it is very likely that your skin cycle has slowed down from its youthful 28-day cycle to a long-winded 40 days. Good news: Skincare scientists have cultivated powerful tools for fending off skin laxity, uneven tone, and creases.
Meet your new best friends: Venus Freeze + Injectables.
A Honolulu MedSpa favorite, Venus Freeze uses a multipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulse fields to stimulate the production of new collagen. This super-charged boost in collagen and elastin can quickly and effectively soften some of the most deep-set creases while firming the newly revitalized skin. This process actually continues for an additional six to 12 months afterward. The results are smoother, firmer, and more supple skin around the chin, jowls, throat, and jaw—all very common areas of concern during our fifties. Typically, patients book maintenance appointments quarterly; however, we have some who opt for this treatment monthly!
Let’s talk JUVÉDERM®
Let’s talk a little bit about injectables. Many men and women in their fifties choose to receive BOTOX® injections every three months to minimize the appearance of new lines around the eyes and forehead. Our favorite fillers, JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA, and VOLBELLA®, can provide just the right amount of plump to areas that reveal volume loss, such as around the eyes, the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and mouth. JUVÉDERM® especially has truly captured the market share on quick, nearly painless plumping for fuller lips, smoother skin, and volume restoration.
