With age, the skin sags, wrinkles and other defects appear. It therefore needs specialised care. What treatments are worth investing in after 50 years of age?
Time passes inexorably. Our appearance changes, the skin loses its firmness, wrinkles, discolorations appear, etc. The skin of a 50 year old has completely different requirements than the skin of women in their 30s. So what treatments are worth having in order to cheat time a bit and keep young look for longer?
Needle or needleless mesotherapy
One of the most popular treatments, which will be perfect for ladies 50+, is mesotherapy. This treatment improves facial contour, makes skin more elastic and wrinkles less visible. Additionally, it allows to get rid of scars and acne lesions
What is mesotherapy? This treatment is nothing else than application of hyaluronic acid and vitamins, mineral salts, organic silica or amino acids to the skin of face, neck and cleavage. There are needle mesotherapy (active substances are administered with a needle) and needleless mesotherapy (electroporation method is used)
In the case of mature skin for really good results it is necessary to perform several series of treatments – from 5 to 10. Their number depends on the condition of the skin, which is evaluated by a specialist at the aesthetic medicine cabinet. Systematically performed treatment allows to avoid or delay the need for more invasive procedures at the plastic surgeon. The procedure takes only 15-30 minutes. One visit costs about 400-500 zł
Very popular among mature ladies is Pelleve procedure, which gives a very natural effect. The skin of the face, neck, cleavage, inner arms, thighs, buttocks, abdomen or breasts is visibly firmer. It is based on the fact that the skin is cooled with a special freezing gel, and in turn the subcutaneous tissues are heated with radio waves. This causes the collagen fibers to tighten, so that wrinkles are smoothed out and the skin is tight and firm
Pelleve is an excellent option for ladies who want to get rid of, for example, wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, sagging chin or nasolabial folds. It is worth knowing, however, that the effects last on average from 8 to 14 months. The cost of a single visit (which lasts about an hour) is about 1500-1700 zł
Lipogems is a procedure recommended for people with mature complexion, who have loss of fat tissue, making the skin flaccid and wrinkles quite visible. This treatment can be considered a natural stem cell filler. These cells are obtained from a woman’s fatty tissue (from the abdominal or thigh area) and are applied to the areas where they are missing. As a result, the skin regenerates, becomes firmer and noticeably younger – even by several years. Just a few hours after the procedure you can leave the clinic of aesthetic medicine. The effect is amazing and appears immediately, but also the price of Lipogems is quite high – about 6-8 thousand zł
Platelet rich plasma
Another treatment ideal for ladies over 50 is platelet rich plasma therapy, which is also called vampire lifting. It is also an excellent treatment for women who are allergic to chemical preparations or prefer natural specifics. This is because the procedure involves drawing the patient’s blood. Then it is poured into a special device, where leukocytes and erythrocytes are separated from the plasma. Then the plasma is injected into selected parts of the face. As a result, the skin becomes noticeably nourished, tighter, and wrinkles are shallower (or disappear completely). Skin tone is evened out
Is the treatment painful? No. Most clinics use an anesthetic cream to make their patients more comfortable. Rarely, dental anesthesia is used.
The procedure takes about an hour. You may notice sensitivity to pain, slight bruising or swelling afterwards, which passes after a few days. Prices of platelet rich plasma therapy start from 400 zł. Experts recommend 2-3 treatments.
