Recommended treatments for 60 plus

A common theme across many of our clients over 60 is that they feel they have left it too late to reap the benefits from new treatments and technologies. Well I am here to tell you that it is never too late to start your journey to a more confident and happy version of yourself. So then the question becomes what treatments really help to give you back the confidence you had many years ago? The great news is it’s never been easier to look your very best and this article will go through all your options.

By the 60’s onwards we have lost a moderate amount of the volume in the middle third of the face (cheeks, under the eyes, nasolabial folds & corners of the mouth). As the skull reshapes and the fat pads below our skin are redistributed, lips can become thinner and skin thickness and tone can reduce resulting in drier looking duller skin. However we can address each and everyone of these concerns giving you back a fresher and more glowing look that will never cease to tease a pleased smile back onto your lips.

It’s never been easier to look your best!

But before we go into more detail as to how we can correct age related changes to the face it’s of paramount importance to stress the need for a robust prevention regime in order to limit anymore negative skin & tissue alterations. You can find details of my recommended regime and more details of how to prevent age related skin change in my previous post ‘recommended treatments in your 20’s to 30’s’. The only noticeable difference is in the number of times you require re-treatments in a year. In your 20’s-30’s you can get away with anti-wrinkle injectables every 9-12 months. In your 60’s plus you will typically need them every 4-9 months etc. See the table below for more details.

Loss of facial volume

Loss of volume in the face manifests as deeper shadows that increase how noticeable natural skin folds and wrinkles appear. They are most prominent around the lines that make up the junction between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), the lines linked with the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) and in the crevice below the eye (tear troughs). This is due to the combined action of the sockets of the eye and nose becoming larger as we age, along with a redistribution of the facial fat pads that naturally give fullness to the cheeks. These fat pads begin to descend causing loss of defined cheekbones, and a downturning to the mouth.

Restore fullness with dermal fillers

At Rejuvenate we can give back that natural fullness by gentle placement of dermal fillers to restore the lost volume, tackling those lines to give you a more refreshed appearance. The dermal fillers we use at Rejuvenate are naturally occurring proteins that are found in the skin and lips, they work by creating volume and a gel scaffold in the area they are placed. This absorbs up to 1000 times its weight in water molecules to give a hydrated and smooth lift to the area. As dermal fillers are naturally occurring proteins already found in the body they are naturally broken down by the body. Typically between 4-12 months after placement. This means that fillers are a great choice as it allows you to try the treatment and then assess the results. The treatment can be tweaked to your particular requirements and changing needs as you age.

I believe in subtle transformations, where friends, family and co-workers keep on piling up the compliments, but they can’t quite put their finger on what’s changed. Recognisably you, just the best version of you.

The only thing to note that giving back a more youthful appearance is comparable to climbing a ladder. At one end is the dewy skin of a 20 year old and the other end is the more lax tone of a 100 year old. Wherever you fall on the ladder I can get you back a few rungs and help keep you there. If you start the process in your 20’s whilst you have that flawless skin, then you will keep along the lower rungs for much of your life. If you enter having not taken care of your skin and heavily smoked then you may enter the ladder on the skin tone of an 90 year old. In this case we can possibly get to an improvement of the skin of a 70 year old. So improvements can be made regardless, though there are limitations to what can be achieved.

You are in safe hands

We have an outstanding breath of knowledge of facial anatomy (location of the plethora of facial nerves, veins and arteries). We match the correct product to your selected treatment ensuring you the safest and best possible results. In-fact here at Rejuvenate we feel so strongly about your safety that we only allow doctors to place dermal fillers. We believe a fully qualified doctor best placed to giving you a reassuringly predictable result and helping you throughout your journey to stop those hands of time turning.
