Droopy face

(13 Posts)

I'm mid 40s, completely prepared(or so I thought) for the completely natural changes in my appearance that lie ahead of me. Turns out I have been kidding myself. My face suddenly feels droopy. The fine lines I thought I had stopped in their tracks when I stopped smoking 15 years ago have reappeared with a vengeance.

Is there anything I can do (short of cosmetic surgery which is a complete no for me)?!!

I can literally feel my mouth drooping even tho I'm actually pretty happy today.

Any advice??? Pretty please.

I'm going to be of no help because I'm going to join you on the drooping step I'm afraid and I'm still an occasional smoker

I would research facial exercises
Fillers !

Facial exercise - long term daily commitment
Fillers - instant but £ commitment

You could also look into topical collagen builders - e.g. retinol or vitamin c

Running helps with mine. I'm naturally jowly so when I'm heavier, droopier is more visible. Running reduces my weight and blood rushes around my face making it look brighter and perkier - at least for an hour or two afterwards lol. Have started using products on my face and neck again (have been pretty inconsistent about this)

Mesotherapy. Needle gun. Pain free and works. French Women love it. My eye bags are gone too. Lasts between nine to eighteen months.

SoleBizz. More info please on mesotherapy - have you needled around your eyes? Is it a one off treatment that lasts 9-18 months and is there a downtime with bruising, redness? ooooh and how much?

Saved up for ages but it is £125per treatment here in Birmingham. First treatment is application of a needle gun. Needle goes 1mm into skin on my face a few hundred times. Had anaesthetic cream applied all over my face. Left it on 20 minutes. Totally pain free. The beautician asked me where my problem areas were. My eyes, droopy sides of mouth. He concentrated a bit more there. This is the filling stage using a cocktail of hydrochloric acid I think....

Eye bags disappeared already. Didn't tell my friend and she asked me what I had done to my eyes.

Second treatment is same price in 3-4 weeks times. This is the firming g stage. Same process.

On Wednesday of this week a new eye firming cocktail became available just for eyes. I called Beautician to ask him what he thinks of it a d he said it is really really brilliant. £100 a go.

I honestly never expected this and had serious doubts. I had no bruising at all.

Have first and second stage treatments last 9-18 months. smile

They also have a Hatley Street clinic.

Call and ask for Keith. You don't have to reveal you don't live in Birmingham or don't have any intention of going to him. Or he might recommend somewhere.

I had a skin test too.

Jmangel Fri 22-Jan-16 22:53:25

Wow, thanks loads of info. That clinic looks good. Will give him a call.

CACI facials use electrical currents to stimulate the muscles. Part way through a course and I can see the difference.
