This is the question I get so often and it’s really hard to answer. Why? Because I can’t see you, and I don’t know what your face is like.
Is it gaunt? Or saggy? Is it well-padded, with jowls and a double chin for good measure? Plus, I’ve no idea what’s bothering you. Age spots? Crow’s feet? Looking sad or grumpy when you’re feeling perfectly fine? Because, you know, you need a reason to have tweakments. You don’t just have them for the hell of it.
Asking ‘what’s the best tweakment for a 50-year-old face’ is a bit like asking me what piece of clothing you should buy. It all depends on who you are, what you’re looking for and how much you’ve got to spend. I also need a bit of a steer on what you’re up for in the way of treatments. Are you ok with needles? With a bit of swelling or redness or downtime? With multiple rounds of treatment? It all affects the choice of tweakments that you might be happy to try.
Having said that, here are a few thoughts.
Best for frown lines – wrinkle-relaxing toxin
Best for hollow or gaunt faces – dermal fillers
Best for rough dry skin at any age – injectable moisturiser
You can look up the details of all those procedures on the links above.
The person who can really tell you what’s best is an expert practitioner. Get yourself in front of one of the people I’d trust with my own face, and see what they suggest for you.
