We all love a “one and done” type treatment (or one that claims to be at least), but as the world turns, we continue to age, and the best way to make the most of your anti-aging investment is to stay on top of your ever-changing skin with a combination of results-oriented modalities! We’re rolling through the decades with our best skin treatment advice, and today we’re featuring the beloved 50s and how you can care for your skin, set it up for success and, most important - look like you’re living in another decade!
Turn Up the Collagen - You’ve made it to your 50’s! You might have grandchildren at this point or just be eyeing retirement as it comes into focus - but one thing’s for sure, you’ve spent your fair share of years caring for or helping others, and now it’s time to turn the focus back onto YOU! Our Profrac Laser treatment is the perfect way to show yourself a little love and stimulate your skin's collagen production, making way for a minimized appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and uneven skin tone. Because this treatment creates micro-injuries in the skin, the skin wound healing response creates new collagen, adding that firmness and resilience to the skin that we all need come our 50s!
Erase Sun Damage - This one has a lot to do with genetics and past sun exposure, but many of us struggle with pigmentation concerns well before and into our 50s. The Forever Young BBL™ is a well-loved treatment for the correction of age spots, freckles, melasma, redness, small vessels, and more. This innovative technology uniquely delivers light therapy to target these common signs of aging and sun damage, leaving you with a more refreshed, youthful appearance because who doesn’t love a clean, even complexion?
Get a Smooth Canvas - You’ve lived a lot of life in your 50 years, and you may have some scars to show for it! While we love firming and evening the skin tone, we also love a smooth surface with firm skin and tiny little pores - that’s where Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma steps in! During this celebrity-loved procedure, we draw your own blood and spin it in a centrifuge to remove the PRP, which contains all those yummy growth factors we need to take your [link] Microneedling to the next level. During micro-needling treatment, your own PRP is introduced into the micro-channels created in the skin, which in turn causes a cascade of anti-aging and healing properties. These include improvement in acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and uneven texture from the inside out. Initial results are visible 2-3 days post-treatment, but the best results will be seen after about 3 treatments.
Time for a Lift - Another big concern we hear from our 50-something patients? “I need a facelift! The sagging is too much for anyone in non-invasive outpatient treatment!” Our reply? “Wrong!” Ultherapy™ is one of our favorite secret weapons for overall dramatic skin lifting! This is the ONLY FDA-cleared treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow (as well as improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage without surgery)! Ultherapy does this by harnessing the power of ultrasound to boost collagen and transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest in one treatment (and has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies in over half a million treatments worldwide!) One of the best parts about this treatment is that it allows us practitioners the use of traditional ultrasound imaging so that we are able to see the exact layers of tissue we are treating, which means that treatment energy is delivered exactly to where it’s most beneficial.
Just a Little Plump Will Do - There’s a LOT we can achieve with lasers and our other in-office treatments, but as you likely very well know - nothing can take the place of fillers and injectables! Sculptra® is our favorite for filling in those common sunken areas you’ll find on the face and hands come your 50s (as well as stimulate collagen and help the skin naturally renew itself!) And there’s really no need to mention DYSPORT® (because who’s NOT using it at this point?) but keeping those strong facial muscles in check and preventing new wrinkles from taking hold is ALWAYS at the very top of our list!
Keep it Regular - The power of consistency cannot be emphasized enough when it comes to skin treatments, and one of the most slept-on treatments (no matter your age!) is, without a doubt, a regimen of monthly facials! While your specific facial varies depending on your skin type and condition, we utilize dermaplaning on all patients post-extraction and treatment to shed layers of dull, dead skin and reveal that fresh, glowing skin underneath! Better yet, our Vi Peels® alternated about every other month, will really help to treat some of those deeper lying aging concerns, while a daily regimen of medical grade skincare will keep your investment protected and your skin happy as can be! While we hold our breath waiting for the eternal fountain of youth, much better use of our time and money is to invest in trained, educated, and credentialed skincare professionals with decades of experience in keeping your skin healthy, youthful, and vibrant. Don’t wait! Call us today for your free cosmetic consultation and find out the secrets all of those gorgeous ladies in their 50s are keeping because we can assure you - they haven’t found the fountain either! 701-751-4140
