Reaching 40 is a remarkable milestone and the Carl Jung quote above rightly says that life really begins at 40! We are not going to use clichés like "40 is the new 30," but it is mostly true. It depends on how well you treat your skin over the years. Even when in the 30s, signs of aging start appearing in many women, like fine lines/wrinkles around the eyes, deeper smile lines, poorer skin texture, and increased pigmentation. All these issues further intensify in the 40s.
You need to realize that the expensive light moisturizer you may have been using for years will no longer cover those wrinkles, fine lines, lax skin, and changing skin texture. It means the 40s have truly arrived and remembered that you have a long way to go!
Why Does Your Skin Need More Care in the 40s?
When in the 40s, women’s skin produces less sebum and is exposed to harsh environmental conditions, like pollution. This is why they need to add an antioxidant-rich serum to their skincare routine to help fight pollutants. Once you reach 40, it would be ideal to shift your focus towards skincare treatments that increase collagen and elastin, two key proteins that keep your skin complexion glowing. Production of both collagen and elastin starts declining from the mid-20s and by the time you are 40, they dip drastically. This is the right time to go for a skincare routine to restore these structural proteins.
It is possible to take care of other skin issues such as forehead lines and crow’s feet with Botox; skin dullness, texture problems, and pigmentation issues can be treated with laser therapy. Consulting a skin expert for using fillers can help restore the loss of tissue and can also help smoothen the folds that come with aging.
Skin Care Treatments to Make Your 40s Remarkable!
Laser therapy is an effective and affordable skin treatment to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and to restore extremely tanned skin. RevLite laser therapy is an excellent solution.
During regular laser treatments, a skin specialist or aesthetician applies strong laser energy that penetrates deep into the skin. The aim of this therapy is to remove deep wrinkles and restore sun-damaged skin. However, these types of therapies cause major discomfort to the patients and involve long recovery periods.
On the other hand, the technologically advanced RevLite provides an ideal solution using short pulses of non-ablative laser frequencies on the facial tissues.
For women in their 40s, the lift and proportion of the face become even more critical. Using an aesthetic filler can provide a natural and non-invasive solution and it comes with several benefits. The filler stimulates the growth of collagen, along with lifting and improving the skin texture by minimizing wrinkles. The filler delicately adds a contoured shape, which enhances natural facial features and helps reclaim a youthful glow.
Skin tightening is another non-invasive aesthetic treatment that lifts and tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production. At this stage, if you notice that your facial skin appears dull and tired around the eyes, skin tightening could be the answer. Many skin specialists use laser and radiofrequency devices for skin tightening to give patients' skin a subtle yet more lifted appearance. Your skin will also feel smoother and tighter. The whole treatment is painless yet effective.
Traditional facelift treatments have been surgical and invasive and patients had to undergo a lot of discomforts that occurred due to cuts or incisions. But not anymore. Also, the traditional facelift has a long recovery time. These are the reasons why many people avoid a facelift.
On the other hand, non-surgical facelifts have brought about a revolution with an innovative and non-invasive procedure. This type of facelift is completed in an hour or two. Added to that, the treatment does not involve any anesthesia, incisions, and cuts and requires no recovery time.
