Hitting the big 4-0? Once we get into our 40’s ageing of skin becomes more apparent. You’ll start to notice discolouration, wrinkles and even minor sagging. What’s more, you may even start to feel hormonal changes that reflect on your skin and give you breakouts and acne! Take heed though, as these beauty and aesthetic treatments are worthy investments to make in your 40s.
Do you dread hearing the B word? Honestly, very few treatments come close to the magic that Botox can achieve! This is why Botox has become one of the more popular treatments across the globe for women in their 40s. An injection that stops muscles in their tracks and hence the formation of wrinkles to give a smoothened out effect. Don’t confuse Botox with fillers though. While it will stop further creases from being formed – Botox does not erase wrinkles and deep set lines. You need fillers for those!

That brings us to the second-most favourite aesthetic treatment for women in their 40s. As we age, our body starts to lose the ability to produce collagen and elastic naturally. What you get as a result of that is sagging of skin, reduced elasticity around your face and neck. Dermal fillers help to counteract this very loss in collagen and fullness. Fillers can plump and smoothen away wrinkles and fine lines giving immediate results. The procedure needs very little time and is often seen as a lunch-time quickie for those in the know!
Want something for complete skin and facial rejuvenation? Ultherapy is a non-invasive ultrasound treatment that can help with tightening and lifting your skin. Unlike laser, Ultherapy targets the inner layers of your skin and is ideal for those in their 40s and who are beginning to lose some (not major) collagen.
Ultherapy can be used to tighten skin around the jawline, under the eyes, on the forehead and décolleté. With results lasting up to 2 years, this one is an investment that is well worth your time.
