5 anti-aging treatments you should start in your 40s

Categories : Clinics

What you to do today will define what your skin looks like tomorrow… and 10 years from now. Here’s your anti-aging battle plan with treatments and procedures that keep wrinkles and sagging at bay.

Power up your skincare

Invest in anti-aging creams and serums that have antioxidants, peptides and retinol. These increase collagen production, which slows down in our 30s. You don’t need to follow a complicated, 10-step routine. (Although we are a big fan of the Korean regimen.) Just make sure you cleanse, moisturize and protect your skin from UV damage. Exfoliate twice a week.

Try neuromodulators

Neuromodulators like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport help relax the face and smooth out lines. This makes you look younger and more rested. These are usually injected at the outer corners of the eyes and the forehead. Go to a reputable Philippine skin clinic that won’t use fake products. Skilled doctors will also know where to inject them to still give you natural results.

Get fillers

Fillers fix volume loss and sagging especially in the cheek bones, under the eyes, and lines around the mouth. This is called facial rejuvenation, and is a good alternative to the face lift. Again, it’s very important to go to an experienced doctor.

Treat your skin to lasers

Lasers can improve your skin tone and texture, boost collagen production, exfoliate, and fade acne scars and sun spots. Expect a few days of redness and some peeling, but once that subsides — hello, youthful skin!

Depending on your skin concern, your dermatologist may recommend other skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling, radiofrequency, or threadlifts.

Invest in your smile

As we grow older, teeth can become more yellow, and stains more prominent. Treat discoloration with a teeth whitening treatment.
