Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you could somehow look a few years younger? I certainly do! Women over 50 definitely start to notice wrinkles, sagging and dullness in their skin. The topic of beauty treatments usually comes to mind.
There are many different kinds of beauty treatments available to make your skin feel healthier and younger. Beauty treatments can be anything from injections, laser procedures and permanent make-up.
There are invasive and less invasive treatments to consider. The most invasive would be traditional liposuction which requires a lot of downtime and some scarring.
Laser treatments are the new way to achieve a more youthful look without surgery and minimal downtime. Here are some minimally invasive treatments to consider.
Thermage is a laser treatment that stimulates collagen growth in uneven and aging skin. The main area of treatment is a sagging jawline or even loose skin around the “middle”. This procedure may also be a solution for tightening the skin around the eyes and face.
2. Laser Liposuction
Body contouring through Laser Lipo will remove unwanted fat in someone with a stable weight. Common areas where this procedure is effective are “love handles”, buttocks, hips, back and inner thighs.
This form of liposuction is commonly referred to as “SmartLipo” and only requires local anesthesia. Fat is liquefied and removed by a smaller liposuction cannulas. Target areas are the stomach, chin and other sensitive areas.
3. Laser Hair Removal
If you have unwanted hair on the upper lip, chin and bikini area, this is an effective way to remove it. While the procedure is not permanent, the hair removal does last for several months.
4. Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
Skin that has been damaged by the sun is ideal for this procedure. It reduces discoloration and age spots. The face, hands and neck are the target areas for this procedure. You will not need sedation, however, multiple treatments will be required.
5. Botox Injections
I think every woman has a little knowledge about the benefits of Botox. These injections are most often used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Most women choose to treat their forehead wrinkles and crows feet.
6. Dermal Fillers
If you want to smooth out your skin for a younger look, then fillers may be the best option. They plump and firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The cost can be a bit expensive though.
7. Non-surgical Fat Removal
This is a procedure that uses vibration techniques to vibrate and remove fat cells by freezing or heating. The procedure offers quick results with no surgery. Multiple sessions will be required.
8. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels gently strip away layers of dead skin. This leaves the skin looking smoother, younger and blemish free. The recovery time is usually about a week.

Professionals perform the procedures above and they can be quite expensive. Don’t lose heart though, there are beauty treatments you can do yourself at home.
