I am in my mid fifties. On the whole I have good skin and look younger than my age but last week I went to see a specialist Doctor to ask about having a thread lift to perk up my droopy neck, jowls and eyelids. She didn't think a thread lift would give me the results I wanted but recommended ultherapy for my lower face and neck. That is booked in for next week.
For my droopy eyes she recommended Botox and carried it out on the spot. The results have been amazing. I have gone from quite deep set, hooded eyes to wide awake looking, lifted eyes and my brows are more arched giving a better frame to my face. I still have facial movement and I love the effect and wish I had done it years ago.
I never thought I would be that person who had any sort of cosmetic intervention and I am posting this to let other women my age know that you can have the occasional tweak or procedure and not end up looking freakish.
