As we age, our body’s natural collagen production slows down. Lower collagen amounts coupled with the cumulative effect of sun exposure can result in fine lines, wrinkles, and skin discoloration. While aging happens to everyone, aging gracefully is easy with a range of med spa treatments. It’s never too early to begin med spa procedures.
What Happens to My Skin in My 20s and 30s?
If you thought acne was confined to your teenage years, think again. Even if you managed to escape acne in your teens, you could end up with acne in your 20s and 30s. During these years, environmental toxins and sun damage can also begin to take their toll on the skin, and you may begin to notice fine lines and crow’s feet.
What to Do
BOTOX® injections are becoming increasingly common for people in this age group. Both men and women in their 20s and 30s are using the injectable to prevent fine lines from forming.
Clear + Brilliant is a safe, nonsurgical laser skin care treatment that can combat the natural effects of aging. The laser technology stimulates the body to produce younger looking skin. Clear + Brilliant can improve complexion, target blemishes and minimize fine lines and wrinkles that begin to appear in your 20s and 30s.
What Happens to My Skin in My 40s and 50s?
At this stage, the aging process may accelerate as women transition into menopause and men transition into andropause. Hormonal changes result in the reduction of collagen production which leads to loss of volume and elasticity around the face. As a consequence, the face can begin to sag and jowls will appear as the cheeks and jawline fall.
During your 40s and 50s, you may also notice that your skin adopts a duller complexion due to a reduction in cell turnover. This also leads to significantly thinner skin and deeper horizontal and vertical lines. Sun damage may also cause new dark spots to appear while other spots will become noticeably darker.
What to Do
Injectable fillers, such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC and Sculptra® Aesthetic, are popular choices for people in this age group. These dermal fillers can help replace lost collagen and yield subtle yet noticeable results. The injections work deep within the skin to reinforce its structure and aid in new collagen production.
BOTOX® can help to soften the horizontal lines across the forehead and can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines, while laser rejuvenation can target skin discoloration caused by sun damage. Often a combination of med spa treatments can offer the best, most comprehensive results for a rejuvenated appearance.
