Tried & Tested Treatment Combinations For Your 20's, 30's and 40's

TLDR: Aesthetic treatments aren't a "one-and-done" thing. The best outcomes are due to consistent combinations of treatments tailored to your face and age!

Read on for treatment combinations we love in your 20s, 30s and 40s!

You know those people who, no matter their age, look fresh, smooth, rested and radiant? The likelihood is that they have a combination of in-clinic treatments and a great at home skincare routine that they commit to.

Just like your toothbrush is used to clean your teeth and your tweezers are used to sort that errant hair that pops out of your chin periodically, aesthetic treatments are tools to address specific concerns.

The best aesthetic outcomes are achieved by a personalised, holistic approach, using the myriad of "tools" available. By considering the whole face, and the skin holistically, the effect of treatments is compounded...greater than the sum of its parts. The whole face can be cohesively, carefully and subtly rejuvenated and refreshed.

Whether you're a younger person trying to preserve what you have, or an older person with more visibly signs of ageing, there are treatment combinations that consistently deliver great results.

In your 20s?

  • Microneedling - 3-6 every month, followed by "maintenance" treatments
  • Peels - 3-6 every month, followed by "maintenance" treatments
  • Skincare


Collagen is the scaffolding of the skin. It reaches a peak in your mid-20s and then declines each year. Microneedling works to stimulate collagen production by inflicted controlled injury, tricking the skin into making new collagen. If you do this regularly, collagen levels are maintained. This keeps the skin smooth, plump and improves texture.


Chemical peels exfoliate the skin and encourage skin renewal. Regular peels keep the skin smooth and fresh.


This helps maintain and protect all that fresh new skin and collagen. A consistent skincare routine tailored to your skin type and concerns stands you in good stead for decades to come. As a minimum:

AM: cleanser, vitamin C serum, moisturising SPF 50

PM: cleanser, retinoid, moisturiser

If you're stuggling to find a routine that works for you, why not book a consultation and chat to a practitioner who can advise you on what works and doesn't work?

In your 30s?

On top of the things that worked in your 20s, you can add a few more treatments into your repertoire.

Anti-wrinkle treatments

Three decades of frowning, scowling and other expressions have repetitively folded and scrunched your skin. Enter anti-wrinkle treatments AKA Botox.

Botox is a versatile treatment. From smoothing foreheads and forms to relaxing "sad mouth" and pesky neck lines, carefully administered anti-wrinkle treatments make you look "fresh" and "rested"...not frozen.

Skin boosters

Skinboosters, also called injectable moisturisers, are essentially a big drink for your skin. They provide instant hydration and plumpness, whilst also stimulating collagen. They don't change the shape of your face, they just give you a beautiful glow.

This treatment combination is great for those who want a little help, but aren't ready for/don't want to have fillers.

Over 40?

Volume loss is inevitable as we age, regardless of how well we look after our skin. Fat pads shrink, bones resorption occurs and gravity takes its toll. This impacts the scaffolding of the face and leads to everything being a bit droopy.

There are a few ways to address this: accept it, replace the lost volume (fillers) or tighten the skin over the shrunken scaffolding (facelift).

  • Fillers - every 12-24 months, maybe longer


Carefully placed fillers essentially replace the volume lost during the ageing process.

A full-face approach is best, as this delivers the most natural outcomes. It's often helpful to take a photo of yourself in your 20s/30s, so your practitioner can see how the ageing process has impacted your facial anatomy and can wind the clock back subtly and naturally

So whether you're looking to turn back the clock, or take care of what you have, a Glowday practitioner is the perfect expert to help advise and guide you. Find and book qualified, checked and insured practitioners at
