Aging Through The Decades: 40s
In our 40s, our laugh lines or crow's feet become more visible at rest. The sun's effects are visible and dark circles form under the eyes. You don't feel old, but your mirror is beginning to betray you. Medical grade skin care, Botox, and dermal fillers are your greatest allies to turn back the clock.
Eyes: Upper and lower eyelids begin to sag, cresting deep-set look; crow's feet develop.
Correction: Optimize skin care products and sunscreen. Filler for hollow under eye area.
Forehead: Frown lines deepen, horizontal wrinkles develop
Correction: Consider Botox in both forehead and frown lines to prevent deepening. Full face PRP to reverse sun damage and build collagen.
Jawline, Mouth and Lips: Vertical lines begin to appear and deepen around lips, wrinkling becomes more prominent.
Correction: Fillers like Restylane/Juvederm for corner droop, support the parentheses around mouth, fill upper lip lines, hydrate the lips.
“I want to scream from the rooftops! Done regularly, microneedling will make your skin act like it did in your 20s—it’ll be thicker, it’ll glow, it’ll have the most beautiful tone and texture.” ~ Naomi Watts
