What age should you consider anti-ageing treatments?


As you age, it’s natural to physically see changes to your skin texture, tone and elasticity over the years.

There are many treatments to help combat ageing– from basic skincare for those that want to keep it simple, to expert aesthetic treatments if you’re after something a little more permanent. Before you decide on the right course of action, it’s important to find out the best anti-ageing treatments for your goals, and when exactly you should consider starting!

What causes premature skin ageing?

As well as your genetics, many lifestyle factors can speed up the ageing process, including:

  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Long term exposure to UV rays from tanning beds and sunbathing

With this in mind, you can start to slow down the ageing process by switching up your routine and changing some of your daily habits to keep your skin happy and healthy. This includes sticking to a good skincare routine that works for your skin type and wearing an SPF every day (yes, even on cloudy days and days when you’re staying indoors!). Beyond changes to your day-to-day habits, it’s always an idea to look into the best anti-ageing treatments for your concerns and aesthetic goals. 

What age should you consider anti-ageing treatments? 

There often aren’t many major signs of ageing in your twenties, so you might think there’s no reason to invest in preventative skincare – but starting this young isn’t accepting defeat!  

It can be tricky to determine the exact age you should start an anti-ageing skincare routine, but the term prevention over cure comes to mind.

To preserve and ensure your skin’s health later in life, most experts advise beginning anti-ageing treatments sooner rather than later to see greater long-term benefits.

What are the best anti-ageing treatments? 

Anti-ageing facials

Some facial treatments are specifically designed to enable your own skincare products to work more efficiently. They are beneficial for anti-ageing as they can be uniquely tailored to your skin type to specifically target your skincare concerns and leave you with glowing skin. There is a range of facials available at Ruma to revitalise your skin and relax your mind including:

Dermaplaning Treatments

Dermaplaning is a facial that provides a safe and effective exfoliation, making your skin look and feel smoother, more radiant and helping your makeup go on more evenly. As well as removing the dead layer of the skin helping with fine lines and wrinkles you will get a fabulous mask that is tailored to your skin type. 

The Murad Facial 

The Murad treatment works by analysing your skin type and designing a bespoke facial to address your skin concerns. Including a massage to relieve stress and induce relaxation and mindfulness.

The Ruma Signature Facial

Ruma’s signature facial uses radiofrequency to penetrate the deepest layers of skin to stimulate collagen production, tightening and lifting the surface of your skin. 

Laser Skin Tightening

Laser Skin tightening is an option to treat loose skin by using a high-intensity infrared beam of light to stimulate the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten, restoring the tightness and tone of your skin. 

Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments

Wrinkle relaxing injections are some of the best anti-ageing treatments to significantly improve the appearance of your skin, treat problem areas, and provide long-term results. Quick and easy, cosmetic procedures enhance your natural beauty for a subtle yet impactful improvement to your overall appearance. Treatable areas with wrinkle relaxing treatments include:

  • Forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Crows feet

At Ruma we offer advanced wrinkle relaxing treatments in additional areas including your lips, chin and neck. Contact our aesthetic clinic in Southampton for more information on this service and discuss the best anti-wrinkle treatments for your personal appearance and aesthetic goals.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the best anti-ageing treatments if you’re looking for immediate results. Using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical in our body, fillers add and restore volume to plump your skin and rejuvenate your appearance. 

Whether you want to achieve the perfect pout, sharpen your jawline, or lift and enhance your natural facial structure – dermal fillers act as the perfect anti-ageing solution for your aesthetic goals. 

As with all non-invasive treatments, it’s essential that you have a full consultation to determine whether it’s the right route for you, during this our aesthetic clinic can tailor a unique plan to best target your concerns and refresh your skin. 

Treatable areas include:

  • Lip filler
  • Marionette lines
  • Laugh lines
  • Eyebrows and temples
  • Cheek and jaw filler 
  • Non-surgical facelift (speak with our clinic for more information)

Skincare is one of the best anti-ageing treatments you can invest in as it helps to keep your skin healthy while being an affordable option that can be done from the comfort of your own home. It is a great entry point if you are looking to start anti-ageing treatments but aren’t ready for anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers. 

Products containing retinol are great at preventing and treating fine lines and wrinkles, improving your skin texture, unclogging pores, and reducing spots. It does this by exfoliating the top layers of skin, promoting skin turnover to even out the tone. It’s important to know that retinol can dry out your skin, so it’s good to look for serums and creams that include moisturising elements to minimise irritation. 

Products containing peptides are another go-to as they help repair skin damage by relaxing your facial muscles to reduce the fine lines, wrinkles, and even scars. They do this by increasing collagen production, the protein that keeps your skin from sagging and gives you that plump, youthful look.
