Beautiful Skin at Any Age

While it may seem like you’re sometimes having a bad skin day, the truth is your skin’s needs change as you age. From hormonal changes to hydration needs, it’s important to work with a cosmetic dermatologist that understands your current skin’s needs.

The 20’s

For most people, it may seem like they have their best skin in their 20’s. For example, estrogen peaks in women during their 20’s, giving most women their best complexion. However, a shift in the level of hormones, like estrogen, can lead to enlarged pores and adult acne. In addition to using appropriate medical-grade skin care, lasers, and peels to help improve adult acne, cosmetic dermatologists can help younger patients begin an anti-aging regimen with light Botox treatments along with fillers to improve facial volume with a completely natural aesthetic.

The 30’s

In the 30’s, most people begin to experience a dip in skin-tightening collagen and elastin along with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid. Cell turnover also begins to slow, meaning the skin doesn’t bounce back as fast from bouts of dryness, inflammation, or acne. With an increase in a dryer, thinner skin, more obvious traces of expression lines appear on the forehead and around the eyes. It’s important to ramp up your anti-aging routine at this time. Medical-grade skin care with retinol, peels, lasers, and microdermabrasion, along with Botox and fillers, can begin to slow the clock on facial aging.

The 40’s

It may seem like your skin changed overnight once you enter your 40’s. In the 40’s, most people experience less firmness, elasticity, and moisture in their skin, causing significant drying, dullness, hollowing, and more visible wrinkles, capillaries, broken blood vessels, and age spots.

In addition to a comprehensive at-home skincare regimen, it’s time to upgrade anti-aging treatments to include innovative cosmetic treatments like Sculptra to rebuild collagen along with fillers to restore facial support and volume, combined with Botox for fine lines and wrinkles plus lasers to improve texture and tone.

The 50’s & beyond

Our skin continues to lose collagen during our 50’s. In addition to reducing our skin’s ability to bounce back, inflammation also peaks, making our skin more vulnerable to damage from the sun, smoke, and pollution. Overall, the skin thins, dries, deflates, and gets looser. Fine lines will become deeper as pores enlarge and the under eyes and cheeks begin to hollow. In addition, spider veins and age spots begin to appear. Skin care must include adequate hydration along with cosmetic treatments, like lasers and microdermabrasion, to improve texture and tone while fillers and Sculptra can replace lost facial volume.
