35 – 50 Skin Review

Lets look at what is happening to your skin and the structures underneath, and of course what you can do about it:


Stage 2: Whats Happening?

The production of collagen and elastin levels continue to fall, as does the production of hyaluronic acid.

  • Collagen is a protein present in all the body’s organs and tissues. It provides the matrix that sustains the  skin whilst providing integrity, firmness and elasticity.
  • Elastin isa protein that coil and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue and accounts for the elasticity of the skin working together with collagen.
  • Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in skin hydration, so it doesn’t become dry and dehydrated.

As a result of these falling levels:

  • Visible fine wrinkles appear on the forehead, glabellar (between the eyebrows) and around the eyes. Fine lines and wrinkles develop around the eyes at rest. The edge of brow droops, eyelid bags and possible under eye bags form, under eye area darkens.
  • The nasolabial folds in the face are more developed and extend,  early signs of marionette lines appear at the outer edge of the lips, lips begin to thin, and the chin area begins to lose volume. The cheeks sag as they lose volume.
  • Gravity and the pull of muscles cause drooping or sagging of the skin and deeper structures from areas of deeper attachment, The lower jaw begins to hang, which may change the shape of the face.
  • Some may experience the early signs of sun damage from frequent exposure such as
    sunspots, brown spots, or freckles. Larger pores appear in the nose. Broken capillaries may appear on cheeks and near nose.
  • The skin appears thinner with more developed static (when face is at rest) wrinkles.

    What we can do:

    •  Cosmetic acupuncture treatments for patients in Stage 2 (mid 30s – 50s) will focus on stimulation fibroblasts to increase production of collagen and elastin in your face, also aiming to increase blood circulation thereby increasing blood oxygenation to create more hydration in the cells resulting in the softening of lines and wrinkles and bringing back tone and plumpness to the soft structures of the face.
    • More hydration leads to smaller looking pores, smother texture and glowing complexion from your facial rejuvenation treatments.
    • With facial acupuncture motor points can be worked on in the face to release tight muscles through the forehead and brows, and relax the jaw for those with TMJ or teeth grinders.  Slacking muscles i the cheeks and jowles can be tightened.

    Recommendation Guide:

    • Anti-aging and specific targeted areas: 8 – 12 treatments, twice a week for 4-6 weeks, then once a week for 2-4 weeks .

    Maintenance Support

    • Once every 4 – 12 weeks, this will depend on how you respond to your initial treatment block and your lifestyle after.

      Please not that this is a guide and that individual results may vary from cosmetic acupuncture and facial acupuncture treatments.
