3 Procedures I Recommend Getting in Your 30’s
Fact: your skin will change in your 30’s. You’re losing collagen every year, sun damage from your 20’s is starting to show and you’re noticing a few pesky lines and creases. This is the age for early correction. The benefit of early correction is that you can maintain it much easier and have less dramatic visible changes to your face – effortless aging.
1) HALO Fractional Resurfacing
This treatment covers all things textural. Whether its sun damage, acne scarring or large pores the HALO is a once-a-year solution to keep your skin looking new. Although it may seem pricier compared to some other treatments, remember that you only need one or two sessions for a dramatic improvement in the quality of your skin. I also have to remind you that the result of this treatment is highly dependent on the settings that are chosen. At doctor led clinics we can provide higher settings for more impactful results.
At this age you notice your cheekbones may not be as high as they once were, or you’re seeing hollowing under the eyes and early sagging or heaviness of the lower face. Address this now with just the right amount of dermal filler. This decreases the need for larger amounts of fillers later on in life. You’re also still young enough that a subtle treatment will simply make you look like you’ve had a good holiday. We also start to notice some static lines on our forehead, often referred to as the 11 lines and crow’s feet. Neuromodulators like Botox do an excellent job of keeping these unwanted lines at bay.
As I mentioned earlier we start to lose more collagen as each year passes. It’s imperative to keep producing as much collagen as possible. Microneedling is extremely effective at stimulating collagen and keeping your skin smooth and vibrant. Even better, combine your microneedling treatments with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for super-charged antiaging benefits and Radio Frequency (RF) for skin tightening benefits. I suggest 3-5 treatments per year to keep looking your best.
What Factors Contribute to Skin Aging?
Wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of skin aging are often the result of a combination of factors. Some of the most common contributors to skin aging include exposure to harmful UV rays, poor diet, lack of exercise, and stress.
Exposure to UV rays is one of the major causes of premature aging and skin damage. The sun’s radiation can accelerate the breakdown of collagen in the skin, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. In addition, frequent exposure to UV radiation increases one’s risk of developing skin cancer.
A poor diet can also have adverse effects on the health of our skin. Eating foods rich in antioxidants like fruits and vegetables helps to repair damaged tissue and prevent further damage from free radicals. Conversely, eating processed foods or excessive amounts of sugar has been linked to an increased risk of developing fine lines and dark spots on the face.
In addition to diet, regular exercise plays an important role in keeping our skin looking youthful. It boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, which helps to remove toxins from under the layers of epidermal cells. Furthermore, regular physical activity encourages collagen production in our bodies, helping us stay wrinkle-free longer.
How to Prevent or Slow The Signs of Aging?
Many factors can contribute to the signs of aging, including sun damage, pollution, poor diet, and stress. While we can’t control all of these external factors, there are a number of things we can do to help prevent or slow the signs of aging.
For example, sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day can help protect your skin from sun damage. Eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Finally, getting enough sleep and managing stress levels can also go a long way in preventing or slowing the signs of aging. By taking these simple steps, you can help keep your skin looking young and healthy for years to come.
How Should a Skincare Routine Change with Age?
One of the most important things we can do is use products that help boost collagen production. This can include creams containing retinol or vitamin C. Along with using these collagen-boosting products, we should also use a good sunscreen. Ultraviolet radiation can damage collagen fibres, leading to wrinkles and other signs of aging. We can help protect our skin from this damage by using sunscreen regularly.
Treatments at Skin Technique can also help immensely; however, they vary greatly depending on your specific area of concern. Contact us for a consultation! With a little effort, we can keep our skin looking healthy and youthful well into our golden years.
