As we age, our health starts to become more of a priority with many women opting to start new diets, try out exercise classes, or even begin meditating for better peace of mind. Nevertheless, many people opt for the more surgical route by going under the knife or choosing a less invasive cosmetic treatment, with patients 55 years and older accounting for one-quarter of all cosmetic treatments. Here are the four best treatments for women over 50.

Botox

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments to get is botulinum toxin injections or Botox for short. This procedure is more common for older adults than ever and is highly effective in smoothing signs of aging such as crow’s feet, lines, and wrinkles on the face and neck. Other surprising conditions that Botox might be able to help with include severe underarm sweating, chronic migraines, and an overactive bladder. Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles which means that the injected muscle can’t contract, making wrinkles soften and relax. Nevertheless, this treatment is also growing in popularity for younger people who wish to prevent the signs of aging from even occurring. 

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a great way to improve the appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new cells. If women haven’t been careful enough when exposing their skin to the sun, over time the skin can appear patchy, and unhealthy looking. Chemical peels work by removing age spots, rough skin patches, sun damage and by helping to even out skin tone. This procedure can also work on younger skin to reduce discoloration from conditions such as rosacea or remove acne scarring. There are three different types of chemical peel, superficial and medium which are the safest option and non-permanent, and deep peels which can be riskier and do not usually need to be repeated. 

Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure for removing unwanted fat deposits around a specific area of the body and can deliver the appearance of a more toned and lean body. The procedure is highly invasive with fat being sucked out of the body in areas where it is hard to lose through regular diet and exercise such as hips, thighs, buttocks, and tummy. The recovery period from such a surgery can be several months, although the results are natural-looking and usually long-lasting, providing that weight is not gained back again afterward.

Facelift

Facelifts are most common in women over the age of 50 since this is a time where they notice sudden changes in their face from the effects of aging. This procedure is invasive and requires a long recovery time of around two weeks up to three months, depending on the patient’s age, with younger people generally being able to recover more quickly. Another thing to note about this procedure is that it can be incredibly expensive, with an average cost of $7,448 per treatment which is another reason why it is most common in older women who have had the chance to save for improving their appearance. A forehead lift is also a very common procedure in older women since it reduces frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and sagging eyebrows to make the face appear much younger, without the dramatic cost of a full facelift. 

These four cosmetic treatments are the most common for women aged over 50, but they are also rising in popularity in the younger age groups. Cosmetic procedures can help to improve your appearance but also improve confidence and, in some cases, other health conditions.
