Your Face Timeline
Caring for your skin from a young age and protecting against sun exposure will help prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.
Avoid sunburns by using safe sunscreens for prolonged sun exposure. Choose a broad spectrum (UVA and UVB protection) rated with a minimum 30 SPF.
Focus on good cleansing and sunscreen use. If acne is a problem, see a dermatologist for product guidance.
Focus on good cleansing and sunscreen use. Introduce a mild antioxidant to your skin care regimen to reduce damage caused by sun, stress, and pollution.
You start to see small crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. A few freckles or brown spots may appear. Your skin may be slightly drier, and not have as much glow. In addition to your normal routine of cleansing, sunscreen, and antioxidants, now is the time to introduce retinols and eye creams. A healthy diet and regular exercise are very helpful.
The subtle lines around your eyes, between your eyebrows, and around your nose and mouth are beginning to deepen. Your lips, especially the upper, are thinning and fine lines are developing around your mouth. Your normal routine of cleansing, sunscreen, antioxidants, retinols, and eye creams may not be enough. You might consider Botox to help correct lines and prevent deeper lines in the future, and fillers (Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, or Radiesse) to help create a more youthful appearance by filling in deep lines and plump your lips.
We prefer a more natural look. Brown spots and red veins become more pronounced. Bleaching agents, mild medical grade chemical peels, or mild lasers can reverse these changes. Sagging or more severe wrinkled areas can also be addressed by moderate lasers.
Now with hormone changes we see a more pronounced decline in collagen, elastin, and oil production. This leads to skin thinning, dryness and drooping. Sun damage will increase the deepening of lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and veins. Your skin care regimen should take into consideration the effects hormone changes have on your skin when establishing a skin care routine. Non-drying cleansers, richer moisturizers, retinols or glycolics, antioxidants, and sunscreens are usually indicated. Botox, fillers and advanced lasers can help you avoid many surgical procedures that are more aggressive. You don’t want to look fake. You just want to look fantastic for yourself. We can help you achieve this.
