In Your 40’s
Jennifer Aniston, 44
For women in their 40s, years of accumulated sun damage presents a new challenge. Starting out with a rehydration filler is a great treatment to diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines. For more advanced skin ageing the use of Botox can also be an option. The cumulative effect will be preventative against fine lines etching between the eyebrows, or along the forehead, or at the sides of the eyes for example. Also try using a makeup that contains a high SPF.
For more aged and damaged skin, the vampire facelift can give great, refreshed looking skin. During this treatment the patient’s blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The PRP contains growth factors that can assist with healing and also promote the production of collagen. When used alongside a fractional CO2 laser the results can be further improved.
