Aging Gracefully Through Your 40s: Top Facial Procedures

One of the latest trends in cosmetic medicine is women in their 40’s choosing surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to enhance their beauty. They look to improve signs of facial aging such as crow’s feet and deep-set lines, as well as hollow cheeks, wrinkles, and folds. 

Today, women at this stage of their lives are not trying to reverse the clock on their appearance. They simply want to look beautiful and feel confident.  

Here is a list of top facial procedures men and women can employ to age gracefully through their 40s. 


By age 40, facial expressions may be starting to take their toll. Forehead lines and crow’s feet are becoming more prevalent, but are an easy fix. Minimally invasive treatments are available for the eye and eyebrow area and along the nose. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are effective injectables to soften these wrinkles and lines by restricting the targeted muscles’ ability to contract for smoother, younger-looking skin. 

Dermal Fillers

Dr. Pugash offers effective facial fillers to revitalize and refresh facial skin. These effective injection treatments refine contours without invasive incisions or extensive recovery. They keep cheeks elevated and eyes clear and bright. 

We use tried-and-true products like Restylane and Perlane to deliver long-lasting results safely and conveniently. 

Short-Scar Facelift

This innovative facial operation delivers benefits of the traditional facelift, but with less visible scarring. A short-scar or mini facelift allows women to wear their hair up or in a ponytail without revealing any signs of surgery. It produces very good  results with a shorter operation than a facelift and less recovery time. 

Eyelid Surgery

Once collagen and elastin proteins decline, wrinkles start to develop, especially in the delicate skin around the eyes. Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift offers a younger-looking, alert appearance to eyes beginning to show their years. 

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

A brow lift elevates a drooping brow that may cause a furrowed or tired appearance. It also resolves deep lines and creases etched in the forehead for a softer, smoother skin surface. It provides excellent results as a stand-alone procedure or when combined with other facial corrections like facelift surgery or facial implants


More and more younger women opt for a traditional facelift to reverse the clock on facial aging and look about a decade younger. During your consultation with Dr. Pugash, he will determine if a traditional facelift is necessary or whether a short-scar or mini facelift is more appropriate. Whatever option you choose, you will notice a significant improvement that retains or restores facial beauty.
