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.

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.

Signs of aging of have set in. The skin begins to thin as collagen breaks down, leading to increased formation of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes, mouth & forehead. Your mid 40’s is also a time when hormones are changing, such as estrogen.  Estrogen maintains skin thickness and moisture, and with less estrogen your skin starts to sag and wrinkle around the neck and chest. Complexion becomes dull, as it takes more time for the skin to renew and repair itself.  Signs of photo-aging (sun spots) caused by sun exposure will also become visible. More cellulite builds up around your hips and thighs giving the skin on your legs an “orange peel” appearance.

If you feel you’re in need of a bigger boost, non-surgical treatments with Botox™, Laser and BBL therapies can help trigger your skin’s unique ability to repair itself, leading to younger, smoother looking skin. And, if you’re looking to reverse the sagging and folds caused by shrinkage that results from age-related loss of subcutaneous tissue volume, dermal fillers is the solution.

You may also notice age spots and more fine lines around your eyes and mouth. At this stage, you may experience weight changes and you notice more cellulite and fat deposits as a result of hormonal changes, which may cause fluid retention.
