When in your 50’s you may notice patches of pigmentation on your skin, and spider veins can also start to show (often a sign of blood vessels damaged by the sun). You may also notice an increase in the size of your pores, especially on your nose and cheek area. Your skin is noticeably thinner and more fragile. It is more dehydrated than in earlier years. But the most significant change you will notice in your complexion is your skin’s dryness and loss of elasticity, as the collagen and elastin are now weak and unsupportive to the skin cells.
Menopause plays an important role in how your skin changes, as during this period the decreased oestrogen slows the production of sebum, protecting your skin less and making it drier. You may also start to notice facial hair. This is due to an imbalance of male and female hormones.
The best non-surgical solutions for you in your 50’s are the more powerful skin rejuvenation procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, deep skin peels, and laser photorejuvenation treatments, combatting wrinkles, uneven skin tone, age spots, and sun damage. You may also consider treatments that help lift and plump up your skin to achieve a supple, toned and youthful complexion.
