fabulous at Fifty

by Susanne Ellis, on 18th March 2014 | 0 comments

Nowadays with the popularity of facial aesthetics, amazing skin care ,and awareness of sun damage people don’t seem to age.

Years ago women over the age of forty cut off their hair and put away their jeans , now it can be difficult to see a big age gap between mothers and daughters.

So what are their secrets?

Eleven years ago when I started doing facial aesthetics as a dentist at The Dental Spa people wanted to look frozen from wrinkle relaxing injections, and have disproportionately large lips.

Thankfully those days are over and techniques and materials much gentler.

I often see ladies around the age of fifty who are fit , happy and healthy but feel that their faces don’t represent this. They feel that they look ‘tired’, ‘worn out’ ‘grumpy’,or ‘saggy’.

So what can we do?

There is actually lots we can do nowadays in a low risk subtle and noninvasive way.

For example lifting saggy and sunken cheeks, and restoring lost facial volume with Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juviderm.

I often lift the corners of a down turned mouth which re illuminates the face.

Another popular treatment is to remove deep shadows and hollows from under the eyes, known as tear trough.

A bug bear with some patients are the lines around their mouths which are usually inherited and nothing to do with smoking.I use a mixture of treatments to remove these softly, and as this is such a sensitive area we often administer a little local anaesthetic injection.

I have seen quite a number of me and women who have lost a considerable amount of weight, they feel so much better, but hate the loose tissue in their faces or hollow cheeks .I use a gentle canula or threading technique to tighten the lower face and fill in the hollows.

Wrinkle relaxing injections can be used to reduce the bulky muscles in a frown leaving a smoother more relaxed appearance .

These patients just want to lift their confidence a little, and forget about something that they have been privately bothered about.They feel fresher faced, and more representative of themselves.

I am very proud to treat such amazing and interesting patients who really deserve a little treat My patients usually don’t tell anyone what they have had done, they almost forget that they have had treatment.

So feel fabulous at any age, wear your hair as you like , get your jeans out the draw and age gracefully and confidently.

You only live once!
