It is true, you do start to see a change when you hit 40 but don’t be afraid.
Most of our patients in their 40’s complain about the appearance of their neck and hands.
Let’s start with the neck and other areas of loose skin.
There are a number of treatments that can work to tighten and rejuvenate this area.
Firstly, PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are a great alternative for those who are not looking to do inject any “foreign products” into their body.
PRP has been used in the medical industry for a long time and is now an incredible tool we use in our Face Plus Medispa clinic for cosmetic rejuvenation.
Extracted from your blood, platelets have many functions and contain growth factors that, when secreted are responsible for tissue regeneration and most importantly increasing collagen production. You can read about the extraction and treatment process here
Following a PRP treatment people patients will discover their skin is plumper, bounces back a little faster and is lifted. A total of 3 treatments are recommended for optimal results. Most of our patients see results following just one treatment.
We often combine PRP with other facials and lasers to achieve phenomenal, lasting results. PRP is effective but not for everyone. Another option that many of our 40 plus patients opt for is “Sculptra”, if you follow our blogs you may have read about this treatment in our
Mother of the Bride series. Sculptra us an injectable collagen stimulator that encourages your body to gradually rebuild its own collagen that has been lost over time.
This is a treatment perfect for those looking for gradual, long lasting results to freshen their look in a holistic comprehensive manner.

If you are lucky enough to have great “springy” and “plump” skin, all you need is a monthly facial to help it along the way. We recommend this as when you hit 40 your lymphatic system begins to slow.

A monthly facial will assist in the drainage process, facial such as a Plumping Collagen Facial is perfect option, read more about the treatment here
