Time and tide waits for no man, the saying goes. The truth is that the downward sag of our face happens faster than we think. Those who still kid themselves to think their faces only start to show signs of aging when they hit their mid-forties are only deluding themselves.
From our very first sunburn in our teens to the cumulative damage from sleepless nights, stress, gravity, our faces are insidiously aging as we speak. That’s why the thinking is that early intervention may help to thwart this downhill progression, helping us save more than just our face.

Here are 5 reasons why we can all benefit from a laser ‘facelift’ even before we hit 40.
#1 FIRM UP YOUR SKIN
Your face does not need to exhibit countless folds for it to qualify as “aging”. A loss of elasticity and suppleness is also a sign of age. Lifting treatments such as Ultherapy can help to defy this sagging process by using microfocused ultrasound to stimulate collagen production and skin tightening.

#2 SAY GOODBYE TO CREPEY SKIN
Another sign of skin aging is the appearance of crepey skin and fine lines. This is usually due to loss of collagen in the superficial layers of the skin, leading to poorer moisture retention abilities. Lasers such as Fraxel Dual are excellent for improving the appearance of crepey skin. Improvement in the appearance of crepey skin can give you a more youthful appearance and give you a better outlook for future aging.

#4 A NATURAL OUTLOOK
Too many women are succumbing to short-term quick fixes when they meet the first signs of aging. Such knee-jerk approaches usually result in regrettable decisions which may make them look ‘unnatural’ or ‘overdone’. Not a good look for any age. The upside of skin tightening is that it is the one treatment that can give you natural results no matter what your age is.

#5 BETTER SKIN TEXTURE
Looking more youthful isn’t just about the macroscopic details, but also the microscopic components. Attributes such as softer skin, smoother complexion, smaller pores… they all add up to a younger persona. And why not? Who wants to drown in layers of makeup just to go out of their front door. Being able to leave the house with just a stroke of mascara and a slick of lip gloss, yet look naturally fabulous is something all of us covet. Skin tightening treatments such as Thermage and Ultherapy improves skin texture and replaces aging skin with younger looking skin. This means less concealment and a more natural outlook.
