Our body’s natural collagen production slows down as we age. 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, and is certainly something you won't regret years later. Like saving for retirement, it helps to do a little along the way instead of trying to have everything all at once.
How Your Skin Ages In Your 20's & 30's – Acne & Sun Damage
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 20's and 30's. 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.
BOTOX® injections are becoming increasingly common for people in this age group. Both men and women in their 20's and 30's are using the injectable to prevent fine lines from forming.
Venus Viva™ is a safe, non-surgical that corrects signs of skin damage and improves the appearance of acne scars and other scars, stretch marks, rosacea, enlarged pores, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and pigmentation. It can improve complexion, target blemishes and minimize fine lines and wrinkles that begin to appear in your 20's and 30's.
How Your Skin Ages In Your 40's & 50's – Loss of Volume & Elasticity, Dull Complexion, Age Spots
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 40's and 50's, 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.
Injectable fillers, such as BOTOX® can help to soften the horizontal lines across the forehead and can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines. Often a combination of med spa treatments can offer the best, most comprehensive results for a rejuvenated appearance.
Although aging is inevitable, you don’t have to allow the visible signs of aging to define your appearance. There are a host of new and innovative anti-aging techniques that are affordable, relatively pain-free and extremely effective. It’s possible to take preventive measures to decrease the effects of aging on your skin. And early treatment can have big benefits going forward.
