Rejuvenate at 50

Many patients wish to rejuvenate at the age of 50, an age when it becomes really difficult to maintain firm and firm skin. As we have also seen in the previous article, already around the age of 30/35, the production of collagen and elastin begins to decrease, the two fundamental substances that give the skin strength, resistance, and elasticity.

Wrinkles and the signs of aging, in general, manifest themselves on the surface when the collagen fibers, present in the deepest layer of the skin, begin to yield. These small sagging are initially milder and less noticeable, but over time they become more visible, marking the skin significantly.

To this physiological process, we must not forget that all external agents are added, such as smog, nutrition, lifestyle, vices, sun exposure, etc … All factors that put a strain on our skin.

Firming the face

Firming the face is sometimes a simple and sometimes more complex operation. It all depends on the degree of relaxation of the skin. This is why I recommend preventing and trying to delay the appearance of the signs of aging:

  1. Have good skin care: using high-quality products means preventing those situations in which it becomes really difficult to recover a more toned look. In addition, it means giving the skin the right amount of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, useful for maintaining visibly younger skin.
  2. Do some facial gymnastics exercises: just as you do exercises to keep fit, it is also important to train the muscles of the face. The results of some research have shown how certain facial gymnastics exercises can rejuvenate the appearance of the face, even by three years!

On the other hand, being in contact with dozens of patients every day, I realize that it is not always easy to reach the age of 50 with a perfectly smooth and well-relaxed face. That’s why, I decided to list below which are the most effective and least invasive treatments that, over the years, have given my patients over 50, but not only, great satisfaction.

Lifting non chirurgico: Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the absolute best ally if you want to rejuvenate and firm the skin of the face, neck, and décolleté.

Let’s talk about an alternative to surgical lifting which, however, manages to return results very similar to those obtained with the surgery. The great advantage is that there are not all the cons of the surgical procedure, therefore anesthesia, scars, postoperative course, healing, etc.

I consider Ultherapy the best ally ever when we talk about skin relaxation, especially for my patients over 50.  Although my goal is always to give results perfectly in harmony with the starting face, in these cases this purpose becomes an absolute priority.

The treatment must return natural, gradual, and lasting results, to prevent others from perceiving a sudden change.

Fillers

Fillers are the trump card of any cosmetic surgeon. Thanks to the type of filler, composition, density, and properties we can define, correct or plump some areas of the face, quickly and painlessly.

I consider hyaluronic acid infiltrations to be a truly effective and versatile tool because they allow me, in just one session, to make my face younger and brighter. We must not forget that young skin is also radiant and fresh; if it appears dull, gray, or pale, it means that our body is warning us that something is wrong.

The fillers, but even more so the revitalizers, prove to be the best choice to regenerate the skin and give it a more radiant appearance. Let’s see more in the next paragraph.

PRP

PRP  is another very effective solution to rejuvenate at 50, a minimally invasive treatment that allows you to regenerate and restructure the skin.

It is well known that our body is a perfect machine, which is why cell regeneration with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is the perfect method to exploit the great resources that our body offers us.

A rather quick process that has no side effects, other than small bruises or swellings that disappear in a few hours. A very valid method that allows, in practical terms, to counteract skin aging, leaving the skin more toned, elastic, turgid, and fresh.
