Five Ways to Look Fab in Your Forties
One striking way to make anyone gaze into your beautiful eyes is to focus on your eyelashes. There are many products on the market to give your eyelashes a boost…even if you were born with lusciously long lashes. Latisse is a wonderful product you can use to increase your eyelash length and thickness, and darken their color. Be advised, you may not see results overnight. Latisse requires you to use it a full 16 weeks before you see final results. You can then reduce how often you use it, but if you discontinue use altogether, your eyelashes will return to their original length, thickness, and color. You can also get eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions typically last 6-8 weeks, but we recommend you get maintenance applications every 3 or 4 weeks to maintain the look of full lashes.
Healthy looking hair
Another great way to look fab in your forties is to focus on your hair. You may have just started noticing grey hairs sneaking in, or you may have been a pro at hiding them. Some of the hot hair trends for 2016 include the following:
- Cinnamon Swirl Hair: This color combines warm honey shades and brown sugary tones for a delicious looking hair color.
- “Cuivre” Red: “Cuivre” means “copper” in French and it’s been said that this may be the most popular trend for 2016.
- Ecaille Blend: Ecaille Blend is the latest ombre trend and means “tortoiseshell” in French. This style can add dimension and an appearance of volume for fine or thin hair.
If you don’t want to get on the hair color train, you can always focus on your cut. Most people associate aging with shorter hair, but one look at Hollywood can tell you that’s not the case anymore. Just make sure your hair is healthy and full of shine.
Get rid of wrinkles
With all the anti-aging products on the market, wrinkles are almost a thing of the past. Wonderful products to consider to look fab in your forties are Botox, Juvederm, and Dysport. Each of these products is injected into your skin and can reduce wrinkles and give you firmer, younger looking skin. Talk with your Med Spa technician to discuss which product is right for you. Just make sure your injections are done by a licensed health care professional. Here at Revive Salon & Spa, our Med Spa is the #1 provider of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm Injectable Gel in the United States, and we have been awarded the Allergan Black Diamond status.
Laser skin tightening
Another wonderful technology that can keep you feeling fab in your forties is laser skin tightening. This process uses a laser to heat the collagen under your skin’s surface, causing it to constrict, thus, tightening loose facial skin. This technology leaves you with younger, firmer looking skin. At Revive’s Med Spa, we use Exilis Elite. This is an exceptionally safe and effective aesthetic device, and was named Best Skin Tightening Device by New Beauty Magazine! There are no side effects, and the process can be done in about 30 minutes. This is great for the man or woman on the go.
Finally, vascular therapy is worth considering. Many conditions can be treated with vascular therapy, such as rosacea, spider veins, and broken capillaries. Varicose and spider veins can increase in frequency with age, and while not usually harmful, many view them as unsightly. Instead of throwing away your shorts, make an appointment for vascular therapy. At Revive’s Med Spa, we use the Sciton CLEARSCAN laser to treat unwanted vessels. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately; however, some conditions may require repeat treatments. There is little risk involved in the treatment of benign conditions, and there is little downtime after your treatment.
There are a number of ways you can look fab in your forties depending on what makes you feel the best. No more worrying about age and wrinkles. Get out there and let your beauty shine!
