The aging process can be brutal, and sometimes, trying to combat wrinkles and other changes in one’s face can seem like an uphill battle. Still, putting in the effort to make yourself look as good as possible is one way to deal with some of the anxieties that come along with growing older. The trick is to know how your face changes at certain ages, and what you can do to treat the issues uniquely.
Your younger years
Adolescence is a difficult time for many, not just because of skin problems, though acne doesn’t make things much easier. But for a lot of people, the second decade of life is a heyday for healthy skin. Still, the occasional acne blemish is not unheard when you are in your 20s. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we recommend skin products that are vitamin A-based, such as retinol. Sunglasses and sun screen are also a must for all ages, but starting early means fewer wrinkles later on down the line.
In your 30’s
Ten years later, many people will begin to see the first signs of aging. Fine lines are common around the eyes, and the undereye skin specially around lower eyelids may become puffy, particularly in the morning. To combat these signs of aging, we recommend enhancing your face cleansing regimen, and adding an eye cream and a rich moisturizer at night. Read the list of ingredients and look for antioxidants, like vitamin C or green tea.
This is also the age when some people begin to look into cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, to help combat the signs of aging. These minimally invasive injections are quite popular, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The group found that for all women between the ages of 30 and 40, Botox was the number one cosmetic procedure in 2011.
In your 40’s and 50’S
During middle age, fine lines will deepen further, particularly around the mouth and eyes, eventually becoming folds in the skin. Nasolabial lines and tear troughs become established not just due to skin thinning alone, but also due to loss of soft tissue volume and skeletal resorption effects. Individuals who lose weight during this time of life may find that skin doesn’t retract as well as a younger person’s, as it’s lost its elasticity. Just as a tummy tuck can help combat sagging skin left over from the shedding of pounds around the tummy, a supporting facial Minilift is an option to deal with facial laxity.
Bone and muscle volume decrease during these decades of life, which can often result in a tired look that can be distressing to some. There are other cosmetic procedures available to help with this issue, such as a facelift or browlift. For those who’d rather non-invasive procedure, the SoftLift volume restoration is an ideal alternative.
