At only 25, the football icon had started fighting with old age. Signs of old age start showing as early as when one is 30. By 40, you could develop sun spots, have shallow wrinkles or experience hair loss. While baldness in most men kicks in the 50s, like Wayne Rooney, you could experience it prematurely due to rare genetic conditions, says Arshni Malde, an aesthetic doctor at Tia Clinic in Nairobi.Some people are happy to embrace a new look and the challenges that come with old age but to others, sagging facial lines, deep wrinkles and a receding hairline can be a big blow to their confidence.I recommend a non-surgical facelift for people who want to look younger without incurring heavy financial costs, says Dr Arshni.As the skin matures, its structure weakens and it loses elasticity and firmness. This 60-minute anti-ageing procedure involves using products called threads that induce collagen in the skin, hence tightening it.The treatment works instantly in 70 per cent of patients I treat with the remaining small percentage experiencing full results by the end of two weeks.
