Cosmetic procedures on the rise for women over 50

According to the statistics from a leading medical center in the United Kingdom, an increasing number of women over the age of 50 are opting for cosmetic injectables and skin treatments. The most popular procedures for older women are those that are aimed at reducing the signs of aging, such as Botox injections, dermal fillers and laser treatments, the British newspaper the Daily Mail reports.

In menopausal women, a drop in hormone production causes skin cells to replenish themselves much less frequently than the younger population's, which can result in skin with a duller, more sallow appearance. Medical professionals have reported a 68 percent rise in women over the age of 50 who are seeking treatment.

"We've noticed a huge rise in these women approaching us for non-surgical treatments," one practice manager told the publication. "They don't necessarily approach us to look younger - they approach us to ensure they look better, for longer."

Members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) are board certified and qualified to perform both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Those interested in undergoing a cosmetic treatment may want to consult with a surgeon before making a decision.
