No matter your age, there is a procedure that can help your skin look and feel its best! For skin that is healthy and vibrant, knowing what to expect at each age and stage is the best way to decide which procedure is right for improving your skin’s appearance, regardless of the change.
You may have heard the often repeated phrase, “the decisions we make in our twenties can affect us the rest of our life.” This is especially true when it comes to our skin! During our twenties, many of us can experience acne- even if we never did as teenagers.
Sun damage, freckles, dark spots, and the beginnings of wrinkles also may start developing during this period of our lives. When it comes to anti-aging, prevention is key! Some of us may begin to develop fine lines around the corners of our mouths, forehead, and crow’s feet.
Your twenties are a great time to get serious about skincare regiments and cosmetic treatments that focus on anti-aging. Botox and Dysport work fantastically to prevent the formation of deep lines. Gentle laser treatments like Clear + Brilliant are also great for young skin, as they address pigmentation and increase skin porosity.
If you are experiencing early signs of skin sagging or laxity, CO2 Resurfacing treatments can be a great option.
At this point, it’s likely you will begin to develop some wrinkles or small dark spots on your skin. You may have lost some elasticity, since our skin’s collagen production slows as we age.
If you haven’t already begun Botox treatments, your thirties are a great time to start. Botox relaxes face muscles that cause wrinkles, and also works to smooth existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from developing.
Laser skin resurfacing can help to treat everything from uneven textures to dark spots, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. There are a variety of different cosmetic lasers available.
While light chemical peels can be great as skin refreshers, using a medium to deep peel will provide a more intense, targeted treatment. These procedures increase skin tightening, brighten skin tone, and improve overall texture. Facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that may have begun to appear throughout the face.
This period is when women begin to see the most changes in their skin. Wrinkles become more visible, and incorporating regular monthly facials into your skincare routine becomes a must. Because your skin is no longer producing natural structural elements, specifically collagen, as quickly as it did in your 20s and 30s, you may notice one of more of the following: duller complexion, hooding of the eyelids, reduced elasticity in the face, and more pronounced laxity on the face and neck.
Luckily, there are a variety of procedures that can easily address any changes you’ve begun to notice in your skin!
CO2 Resurfacing is a more aggressive type of fractional resurfacing that helps to improve the tone of skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma, can be some of the best anti-aging skincare treatments for your 40s. These fillers smooth fine lines and wrinkles, add volume and definition to lips, and add contour to the face to recreate the fuller, more supple look of younger skin.
