As we get older, many of us take visible signs of aging more seriously, especially when we feel these don’t match our actual energy and vitality. While much can be done today to delay lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of volume from appearing on our face and neck, once they appear, the priority becomes finding ways to restore more youthful-looking skin.
Dr. Ackerman offers medical-grade skin care products and facial treatments in Newport Beach, some of which individuals can use as early as their 20s to keep their skin looking vibrant. When rejuvenation is desired, the following options are available and highly effective.
Facial Rejuvenation Options in Your 30s
In the 30s, individuals often first notice lines and wrinkles developing around their eyes, forehead, and mouth. At this time, collagen and elastin production in the skin begins to slow down.
Dynamic lines (caused by muscle contractions) are often the first to appear at the corners of the eyes and between the brows.
Skin texture issues may also occur and can be addressed at this stage of life. The hormonal waves of adolescence that cause many of these will have ended, leaving after-effects that can be dealt with in various ways.
The following treatments are helpful to address a variety of skin problems:
If you haven’t already invested in prescription skin care products, now is the time to begin. Many people across a broad age spectrum have already learned and committed to a regular skincare routine. A combination of hydration and sun protection is your first line of defense for countering facial aging.
For fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, or other complexion concerns, skin resurfacing can be the solution you’re looking for. Dr. Ackerman’s MedSpa can provide skin resurfacing treatments using the following techniques:
Dr. Ackerman also offers laser skin resurfacing treatments.
This neuromodulator treats dynamic lines and wrinkles by calming the underlying muscles that cause them. BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily eliminate forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
Injectable fillers (dermal fillers) work differently than BOTOX® Cosmetic and are more effective for static lines and wrinkles. This treatment is especially popular among women and men who may experience volume loss, lines, and wrinkles caused by sun damage or persistently dry skin.
Some of the dermal fillers offered by Dr. Ackerman’s MedSpa include:
- JUVÉDERM® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler that treats moderate to severe wrinkles, lines and creases around the mouth and nose. JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can also be used to restore volume loss under the eyes and in the cheeks.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an excellent option to increase lip volume.
- Restylane® is an injectable filler also made from hyaluronic acid and can smooth fine lines on the forehead and between the brows or add fullness to the lips.
Facial Rejuvenation Options in Your 40s
Sun damage, discoloration, and volume loss tend to become more noticeable in our 40s. All of the treatments mentioned above can help restore a younger facial appearance, and the following procedures may provide additional benefits for this age group.
Continue to practice a quality skin care regimen and consider skin resurfacing treatments to address pore size and discoloration. Consider adding a Retin-A type of cream, usually prescribed by a doctor, to your skin regimen.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
This injectable filler option can treat more severe, set-in facial lines, wrinkles, and creases commonly appearing in our 40s.
Our laser-based procedures are based on advanced technology and include:
- IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) PhotoFacial treats wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, rosacea, enlarged pores, undereye bags, as well as other issues on the face, neck, and chest.
- CO2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing removes the top layers of damaged skin to promote new skin cells and collagen production. This treatment can smooth fine lines and wrinkles near the eyes and the mouth, as well as deep creases under the nose. Acne or surgical scarring becomes less visible, and this long-lasting laser treatment can also be used on the neck or décolleté area.
Facial Rejuvenation Options in Your 50s
Skin sagging becomes a bigger problem in our 50s, and many women and men consider a facelift at this time of life. If you are considering having a facelift at some point in your life, do not wait much longer, as the results are optimal when the facelift is not delayed into your 60s.
If you prefer non-surgical treatments, the following options are recommended: Medical grade creams that include Retin-A type ingredients and microneedling with PRP.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
Because JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC can treat severe facial lines and wrinkles, this facial filler remains a great option.
Facial fillers can also be used to provide a “liquid facelift,” which is customized to address your unique concerns.
You can combine BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser treatments to achieve excellent results without surgery.
Facial Rejuvenation Options in Your 60s
If you have taken good care of your face and neck with medical-grade skin care products, laser treatments, chemical peels, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you may be able to continue to benefit from these procedures or undergo a liquid facelift with dermal fillers.
