As we enter our 40s, our youthful glow begins to dwindle. However, this doesn’t have to be the case, as modern plastic surgery procedures offer a variety of solutions for maintaining and prolonging youthfulness. For many people in their 40s, plastic surgery is geared towards reversing signs of aging and restoring a youthful appearance. Below, we’ll explore common plastic surgery trends for patients in their 40s.
Dermal Fillers & Injectables
Dermal fillers and injectables remain an important cosmetic treatment for patients in their 40s. For patients who have begun experiencing volume loss as a result of the aging process, dermal fillers offer a simple solution. With these treatments, patients can restore a natural-looking volume to the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful appearance. Additionally, neuromodulator injectables like Botox® can help reduce and prevent wrinkles. By relaxing the muscles responsible for creating facial wrinkles, they can instantly diminish the appearance of wrinkles and prevent them from worsening.
Facial resurfacing is a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment that can be particularly beneficial to patients in their 40s. With facial skin resurfacing, chemical peels or laser technology is used to exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin, revealing brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin underneath. These treatments can target aged, damaged skin, reducing hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles and lines. People in their 40s will inevitably encounter some or all of these skin concerns, making facial resurfacing a popular solution among this age group.
Facelift or Neck Lift
The 40s are also a popular time to begin considering facial surgeries like the facelift or neck lift. Once patients reach this age and begin developing signs of aging, it’s possible that minimally invasive or non-invasive treatments, like the ones mentioned above, may not produce the desired results. If a patient is unable to achieve their desired results with other treatments, it may be time to consider facelift or neck lift procedures. These treatments trim and tighten excess skin to eliminate wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. Patients may even combine the treatments for comprehensive rejuvenation benefits!
