Liquid Facelifts: How Good Are Cosmetic Filler Injections for People in their 50s?
My First Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treatment Experience: What it’s like to get a Liquid Facelift
Here I was, at 53, and still a virgin. An Injectables virgin, that is. I’d heard of “Liquid Facelifts” but initially wasn’t really sure what they actually were or if they really worked.
Gravity, however, was working against my anti-ageing regimes in my 50s in a way I hadn’t anticipated when I first began to look after my skin at the age of 23. I’d used all the best in skin care products and gave myself regular masques and topical facial peels, but apparently these only go so far when your skin ages. That’s because your face starts losing volume – the skin sags due to lost collagen fibres and strength, and even the bones of the face atrophy.
Lost volume in the face (temples, mouth and cheek areas in particular) along with sagging facial skin is extremely ageing to the overall appearance.
And what ageing skin often means is this: you look perennially tired, unhappy or concerned. It’s just what happens when time etches temporary facial expressions into the ever-deepening crevices of your skin.
But it was only a matter of time before the right Injecting Clinicians came along, one I felt comfortable enough with to risk injections (as I normally hate needles and the thought of voluntarily subjecting myself to needles in the face felt daunting). The Injector helped me to recover some of what I was losing with every passing year (primarily a definable jawline, elevated cheekbones and wrinkle-free skin).
Yes, time does age us no matter what our experiences.

UPDATE on Anti-Ageing Treatments as of early October 2016
With the facial volume restored and the forehead wrinkles increasingly kept at bay with injectables, 3.5 months after my Virgin Injectables Session I decided it was time to deal with the textural issues of having ageing skin. I wanted something to reduce the visible pores, fine lines and generally lack-luster looking skin that was starting to sag (okay, it was genuinely sagging now and needed help).
