Aesthetic treatments for your 50s
As we move from one decade to the next, it’s inevitable that we notice changes to our skin. When we reach our 50s, skin concerns that weren’t as noticeable when we were in 30s and 40s are now more pronounced. Skin is not as firm as it used to be, with the tendency to become thinner and drier with deeper lines and wrinkles.
If you’re experiencing menopause too, these skin concerns are magnified as oestrogen levels dip, reducing the body’s ability to produce collagen and retain moisture. This translates to skin that is more easily damaged and taking a longer time to heal. The older you get, the more you need to pay attention to your skin especially when it comes to unusual pigmentation or moles.
Here are the top three aesthetic treatments to consider for your 50s.
As you get older, skin looks and feels drier. Profhilo perfectly adds hydration to the skin in a simple, straightforward procedure. Simply by injecting into 5 points on each side of the face, this treatment treats the entire face by delivering deep hydration thanks to its key ingredient, hyaluronic acid.
Despite using hyaluronic acid, Profhilo is not to be confused for a filler treatment, hence it won’t add volume to the face or create any structural changes. Not only will your skin look younger naturally, you’ll love the glow and radiance that come with it.

Sagging or lax skin is another common symptom of ageing skin. For those in their 50s and experience skin laxity, Ultherapy is an ideal treatment as it targets the lower part of the face and jowls to effect skin tightening.
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, without harming the superficial layers of the skin. Skin is lifted and tightened with results that can last between one to two years.
Most patients see an improvement around the eye area, with droopy brows lifted for a more refreshed appearance. Sagging skin around the cheeks can to lessen nasolabial and marionette lines for a more youthful appearance.

#3 Anti-wrinkle injections
Deep lines and wrinkles start to set in from as early as our 30s and deepening over time. Besides erasing these lines, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to effect other skin benefits for younger looking skin.
When used in miniscule doses, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to minimise the appearance of pores while improving overall skin tone and suppleness, so skin looks smoother and clearer without any loss in movement in major facial muscles.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to lift and tighten sagging skin around the jaw while smoothening the skin around the neck area, for a more defined jawline.
