I am asked ‘How to look younger at 40’ a LOT, let me tell you! Not just at 40 either, at 50, 60 and 70! Whilst we can’t completely turn back the hands of time, or stop to aging process, there are some things that you can do to help you achieve more youthful skin, from the outside in, and inside out. 

It’s all about simple, sustainable lifestyle changes, coupled with amazing advanced clinical treatments, that can help to reduce lines & wrinkles, tighten your skin, remove pigmentation and generally make your skin look younger and glowing.  How does that sound? Are you in?! Then read on.

How to look younger

Isn’t this the magic question? How to look younger at 40 and beyond takes a combined approach. There isn’t a one size fits all, or a magic one off treatment sadly! BUT, there are some amazing advanced treatments that can help you to look younger, and coupled with some simple and sustainable lifestyle changes – you can expect to have gorgeous skin as the years roll by. 

How to look younger at 40 is certainly something that interests me, being smack bang in the middle of my 40’s.  Mother nature has become a little less kind, and the adventures, trials & tribulations of our earlier years start to show up.  Combining treatment like RF Microneedling with supplements, products and lifestyle hacks are my personal favourite, but there are other fantastic clinical treatments that can help with your specific skin concerns.  Your skin, Your way!

Lets talk RF Microneedling!

‘How to look younger at 40’ really starts with how to boost those natural collagen levels, and trick your skin into thinking it’s younger again! 

As you mature your natural collagen levels decline in your skin, actually from your mid-late 20’s. This is why you’ll typically see those pesky signs of aging creeping in by your early to mid 30’s.  RF Microneedling is collagen induction therapy, at it’s finest.  The microneedles cause tiny punctures within your skin, which causes your skin to enter ‘healing’ mode. As part of this, your skin produces fresh collagen and elastin. In addition to the needles, the radiofrequency element causes thermal heat trauma in the skin, causing it to contract and tighten in response (plus it stimulates MORE collagen).  The result? Younger, plumper, lifted and more youthful looking skin. 

And the real win is that your skin continues to increase it’s collagen levels for up to 12 weeks after your course of treatment ends. Amazing, right?

Have you ever started a skincare routine and wondered how on earth you’re going to keep it up?? Maybe it was too complicated, or even too expensive? I hear this all the time.
