The Anatomy of an Aging Face

Women still feel invincible at 40. At this age, they probably have achieved a lot in their career, traveled around the world, and raised beautiful kids. But their mission is not yet done—they’re ready to take on the next challenge or face a new adventure in this next chapter of their life.

However, there will be obstacles that might hinder them from being the best they can be: problems like insecurity and lack of confidence, as it’s also around this time when the signs of aging become quite apparent.

Don’t worry! We believe that every woman deserves to look and feel their best.

Here’s a guide on the telltale signs of skin aging and how it can be prevented—because taking on challenges and facing new adventures is so much better with healthy and beautiful skin.


Common Signs of Aging


Age/Dark Spots

As you age, your skin tone becomes uneven. The overproduction of melanin causes dark spots to form on the face and other parts of the body.

Forehead Lines/Wrinkles

Another common sign of aging is the formation of lines or wrinkles on the forehead, which happens when your skin loses its elasticity.

Crow’s Feet

Lines and wrinkles also start to form beside the eyes.

Dark Circles/Wrinkles Under Eye

Part of the aging process includes the formation of dark circles and wrinkles under the eyes.

Laugh Lines

The lines that form around the nose and mouth are telltale signs of aging skin.

Sagging jaw line

Your skin will naturally droop as you get older, causing your jaw line to sag.


Prevention and Treatment


Refirme Skin Tightening

This boosts collagen production in your skin, making it look more healthy and youthful. This procedure tightens the skin over a series of treatments, gradually reducing sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. You’ll be looking so much younger in all those important reunions and parties this December!

Syneron Elos Skin Rejuvenation

This procedure treats sun spots, uneven toning, pigmentation, and skin redness, all of which are common in Asian skin. With skin that’s bright, clear, and toned evenly, your face will surely stand out during the holidays!

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

To support your face’s shape and replace lost tissues, we recommend you get treated with Hyaluronic acid fillers. This type of filler is a naturally present in the human body, and when injected will effectively remove signs of aging like dark circles, eye bags, sagging cheeks/lips, and nasolabial folds (laugh lines).

Pigmentation and Melasma Treatment

This treatment removes blemishes and dark spots caused by melasma. With a clearer and fairer face, you’ll have a fresher and more youthful appearance.

Botulinum Toxin

This is a totally safe prescription medicine that clears away crow’s feet and frown lines. After the procedure, your face will look soft and full of expression—just what you need for those Christmas and New Year gatherings!


General Anti-Aging Tips

Protect Yourself from the Sun


Too much sun exposure can damage your skin and quicken the aging process. Wear sunblock and try to stay in covered or shaded areas. Harmful UV rays age your skin cells and cause skin cancer, so be sure to protect yourself from the sun.


Eat Healthy


You are what you eat, and it will show in your skin. Add more fruits, veggies, and foods rich in protein, omega-3, and antioxidants to your diet. Avoid foods that are sugary, high in sodium, and fried. Make sure to regularly hydrate, too!


Facial Exercises


Exercising the body is great and definitely helps, but try firming up those facial muscles with some facial exercises as well!
