Glam Grans – older ladies lead the way in style and beauty!
Glam Grans – older ladies lead the way in style and beauty!
Since 2010, The Great British Bake Off has been making headlines across the UK, but the break out star and headline maker has undoubtedly been Mary Berry.
Each week her immaculate hair and makeup and her impeccable dress sense only increased as the seasons have progressed – even to the point where the celebrity cook is now credited with setting fashion trends amongst older women.
She is also impacting mature beauty trends – her bright lipstick and perfect hair has even started to have an effect on younger audiences – she even earned a spot on FHM’s 100 sexiest women of 2015!
The over 70’s lady has Mary fixed firmly in their sights as their style and beauty icon and has inspired a whole generation of older women looking to enhance their natural beauty rather than chasing a younger look. The shift towards the soft ageing look is inspiring older women to take an interest in cosmetic beauty which might not have appealed to them, or even felt accessible to them previously.
At MediZen we are happy to say that our clients range from all ages – from early twenties to late eighties. Our older ladies often come to us to hydrate their skin, restore plumpness and restore definition that can be lost with age.
Our top treatments for ageing skin are:
Dermal Fillers are most commonly used to restore skin to its former youthful appearance. Some of the major signs of ageing include sagging and wrinkles caused by the natural decrease of fat and collagen. These are naturally produced by the body and appear underneath the skin to keep it firm, smooth and wrinkle-free, but are gradually lost as you age.
Dermal Fillers act as a substitute for these materials, and are available in various injectable thicknesses to replace lost volume and plump out wrinkles in many parts of the face, including: corners of the mouth (marionette lines), nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds), between the eyebrows (the glabella lines), lips, chin and cheeks.
Lip Reshaping and Enhancement
We reshape and enhance the lips using Juvederm Volbella, a unique soft, smooth gel that is carefully placed into the lips in order to redefine and shape them. It has a lower Hyaluronic Acid concentration than similar products, which means that it is less likely to absorb water, producing a more natural result with reducing swelling – We also have the skill to lift and treat the downward corners of the mouth that can develop into a slight frowning appearance – we can quite literally turn your frown upside down!
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
With wrinkle relaxing treatment at MediZen, using Botox cosmetic injections, we can delay and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so that you look younger for longer.
When Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is inserted into the muscle, the brain can no longer send a signal via the nerves to tell the muscle to move, as happens when we make a facial expression. This leads the muscle to relax and as it is no longer able to contract meaning there is less creasing and lining of the skin. This results in new skin having a chance to grow without being repeatedly wrinkled. Skilful treatment with Botox allows the untreated areas of your face to move as normal and you will still be able to laugh, smile and frown, but with less wrinkling of the skin in the areas treated.
eTwo Skin Rejuvenation
There are many different treatments available that are ideal for stimulating the production of newer, fresher skin by stimulating the deeper layers (the dermis), allowing the skin to refresh itself more efficiently, leaving it appearing smoother and brighter than before. eTwo is our most advanced and sophisticated treatment for general skin rejuvenation, which uses a technology called sublative rejuvenation to stimulate the skin’s deep layers.
We use it to improve your fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars and discoloured or uneven skin. eTwo gives you the same results as more aggressive treatments, but the difference is you can continue your daily life immediately (or very soon) after the treatment is complete, with minimal pain, discomfort or surface skin damage. eTwo is not a laser treatment and is safe to use around the delicate eye area, where we have been getting fantastic rejuvenating results with a technique using this procedure called Rejuven-eyes. Rejuven-eyes helps to tighten crepey skin, reduce lines and wrinkles and generally tighten skin in the upper and lower eyelid area.
eTwo Skin Tightening
eTwo skin tightening can help you to tighten lose skin and a sagging jawline with one or a series of simple non-invasive treatment sessions.
eTwo’s skin tightening can also be combined with eTwo Skin Rejuvenation to further enhance the results that can be achieved.
Hydratite at MediZen, Sutton Coldfield combines the advantages of two of our most popular treatments to give your face both a fresh, radiant glow plus tighter, firmer and younger-looking skin.
As a stand-alone treatment, the HydraFacial is a skin health procedure that is designed to remove impurities from the skin whilst pumping essential nutrients in. Meanwhile, eTwo uses radiofrequency technology to create heat in the deeper layers of skin, and stimulate collagen formation to give a tightening effect (see ‘What is eTwo Skin Tightening` for more details). Because the eTwo Sublime treatment employs moisture within the skin to create the heat, the HydraFacial is able to enhance these effects thanks to its hydrating properties.
The Hydratite is ideal for people who feel that they’ve lost that elasticity, volume & healthy glow in their face or other areas. HydraFacial and Radio Frequency combination treatment can be done on any skin type, and we have been amazed by the results that can be achieved with this combination treatment.
