Deep wrinkles, sagging skin with loss of firmness, and loss of definition of facial contour are major concerns. You might notice that your skin is less elastic and your pores are larger than visible. This caused by the degradation of collagen and elastin fibers. Estrogen and progesterone levels drop during peri-menopause and menopause, leading to thinner, dryer, flaky skin. This hormonal imbalance may also cause temporary acne problems and some facial hair. Age spots become more prominent, due to sun damage incurred throughout the years. Spider veins, often a sign of damaged blood vessels, can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun and injuries.
Skin Treatments in your 50’s
Cosmetic surgery is one of the options to get back to your youth, but if you wanted to do it without surgery, skin care products with polymers and peptides help to plump and firm the skin and regular use of retinol and glycolic acid helps diminish the appearance of the sun damage. Moisture is more important than ever you should find nourishing masks and serums. They will help you to keep complexion looking healthy and hydrated. If you find that you need a little more of a lift, then dermal fillers and Botox™ can provide an instant “liquid facelift” and improve your frown lines and wrinkles.
