Mother Nature has always been kinder towards men as they aged, rather than towards women, but a woman who ages gracefully and becomes more beautiful with each passing year appears like a well structured and complex bottle of wine, designed to be enjoyed and savored.
With all the help proffered by the plastic surgery industry and the beauty industry today’s older woman has the chance to be more striking and irresistible than ever before.
Grey hair and wrinkles used to be a distinguishing mark of “being over the hill” but directors of top fashion houses are starting to recognise that women only become truly stylish in their later years.
Fashion houses like Marc Jacobs, Celine, Vivienne Westwood, Kate Spade, St Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier and Dolce & Gabbana have taken to using stylish and chic older women in their advertising campaigns as have beauty houses like Givenchy and L’Oreal.
Helen Mirren, Charlotte Rampling, Iris Apfel, Julia Roberts, Joni Mitchell and Susan Sarandon are all shining examples of the saying “age is just a number”.
Their stunning ad campaigns prove that a woman can be beautiful at any age, as their true beauty and life experience shine through.
Years of experience can teach a woman what really suits her, rather than slavishly following trends. Ageless style transcends the years … What 20-year-old knows how to really rock a fabulous hat or a severely tailored suit? Older women understand fashion and know how to make it work for them.
The same goes for her beauty treatments. Never before has there been so much help on offer for a woman who wants to look her glamorous and mature best.
Eating well, exercising in moderation and looking after herself from both a medical and aesthetic point of view are essential for an older woman to look her optimal best.
An holistic approach to life and a happy disposition also help her enjoy her life to its fullest.
It is usually better for an older woman to exercise regular maintenance in her beauty regime rather than wait for the ravages of time to catch her unawares, and having many small procedures done over the years can make all the difference in a woman’s looks and earn her compliments for decades.
So what does Medi-Sculpt have to offer the fabulous older woman in need of a pick-me-up? If she wants wrinkle-busting effects with skin-smoothing and lifting she can try Medi-Sculpt’s non-surgical facelift treatment, The Liquid Facelift, which has been providing facelift-like results for or many years and involves the careful use of advanced dermal fillers in conjunction with botox injections.
Threading is a marvellous way to look more youthful without having to go under the knife. Again, this is in line with non-invasive procedures which are so currently so in trend.
The V CONTOUR thread lift can make a face visibly more youthful when used on a sagging neck and jowls, giving a contoured and sculpted V-shape. The Silhouette Soft
Thread procedure reduces wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment, for a result lasting up to 18 months.
The 4D thread lift is the first of its kind in South Africa. This procedure combines PDO threads with the Silhouette Soft® threads achieving the ultimate in non-surgical shaping and volumization of the neck in addition to the lifting and contouring of the jawline.
All of the above treatment offer subtle results that leave mature skin looking refreshed – which is the effect required. This is much better than a transformation that can look too obvious.
Turning back the clock has never been simpler and easier and an older woman with style can look sensational, in fact better, than she did in her 20s.
