When it comes to maintaining good skin, you get to spend a lot of both time and money. And the sad fact is that the older you get the less effective treatments will be.
Are skin treatments worth the money?
This is an important question, I feel, as none of them come cheap. I find that none of the treatments give a huge result but rather a more subtle one ( keeping in mind that I’m not going for hugely invasive ones ).
And what about things like Botox and fillers? Do these still work when you’re on the more “mature” side?
Do you reach a point where the only thing that’ll work is surgery?
Now I’m not anti-surgery by any means, it definitely has it’s place if done in the right way. However for me personally, it’s something I’d prefer to avoid. I’d be nervous of the result being different to how I’d imagined and also of something going wrong. But you never know…
I decided to talk this through with Dr Aamer Khan at The Harley Street Skin Clinic. I wanted to know what, if anything, will actually work when you’re 50 or 60+. Why do treatments work less well and is there anything worth doing?
As ever he was a mine of useful and sometimes surprising information. I hope you find this as interesting and helpful as I did.
