The Best Skincare Treatments If You’re in Your 40’s

Let’s be honest, when you get start to reach that “over the hill” age, the rate at which your skin ages seems to pick up speed as it heads down the other side! What worked best in our 20’s and 30’s just doesn’t quite give the same effect anymore and it’s time to rethink your approach, get ahead of your skin concerns and stay on top of the aging process. Today we’re going over our favorite treatments for 40-somethings that address the most common concerns and keep everyone guessing how you manage to stay looking so young!

Get the Glow – One obvious sign that our skin has started to slow in its rate of cell turnover is an overall look of dullness. Just like we have to clean and polish our wood floors regularly to keep them looking their best, we need to do the same for our precious facial skin! The HALO™ Laser Treatment has taken the cosmetic world by storm for the simple fact that the results it yields are second to none. The HALO Treatment utilizes both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths (a micro wounding wavelength laser that removes the thin outer layer of skin and heats the underlying skin). This peeling of the outermost layer of skin helps to correct discoloration, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sun damage and scarring, while the heating of the underlying layers encourages the skin to up its collagen production for lasting results. While HALO carries a bit higher price tag than other peels or lasers, it also requires fewer treatments, is more effective, and has longer-lasting results because while we know you love to visit us at Pure Skin, we also know you’ve got other places to be!

Reverse Sun Damage - Brown spots, spider veins, moles, and melasma, oh my! Whether you’ve enjoyed your fair share of time in the sun (did anyone else get a “base sunburn” at the beginning of every summer back when?!) or if your body simply produces too much or too little melanin, you may be noticing pigmentation irregularities in your skin. To bring back an even tone, we utilize our BBL Forever Young™ Laser Treatment, the ONLY device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan! So how does it work? BBL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths to target the underlying layers of your skin, where it is absorbed to eliminate pigmented (darker) skin cells and promote collagen production. Results may be seen within a few days or weeks after beginning treatment and will become more noticeable and significant as treatment continues.

Smooth It Out – One of our patients’ biggest concerns, no matter the age, is uneven skin texture. Whether this is due to scarring, enlarged pores, sagging of the skin or those all too common fine lines and wrinkles, microneedling is the perfect tool to trigger your body’s wound healing response with micro tears, causing an increase in the production of collagen and elastin which will naturally smooth, firm and tone your skin. To take results to the next level, we also offer PRP Microneedling which utilizes your body’s own platelet-rich plasma that we smooth into the micro injuries created during microneedling. This plasma contains growth factors unique to your body that provide an even more intense wound healing response for more pronounced results and a faster healing process.

Resurface and Refresh – While we all may need a little skin resurfacing as we reach our 40’s, one thing we know for sure is that the degree of need varies greatly. One of the best things about our Laser Resurfacing at Pure Skin is our ability to offer a variety of different treatments with varying levels of intensity. Whether you’re looking for a short downtime “weekend peel” or you’re really looking to get some intense resurfacing achieved – our Sciton® JOULE™ Platform can help you achieve that natural smoothness and youthful glow of yesteryear.

When we’ve ran the majority of the race, it only makes sense to finish strong, right? That’s why we love recommending fillers and toxins to complete the look and bring back that wrinkle free, supple skin we all want - and they’ll only make your laser results sing that much more. Don’t forget to make the most of your investment and maintain your results with a consistent at-home skincare routine! We are more than happy to help with suggestions because, after all – shouldn’t we be the ones choosing which decade we want to look like we’re from? Call us today at: 701-751-4140
