With all the weddings, reunions and parties this summer, what better time than now to take care of your wrinkles and lines? You can even address some signs of aging before they happen.
Dr. Paul Nassif, MD of Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology say’s SPRINGTIME IS THE BEST TIME FOR WOMEN AND MEN TO REJUVENATE THEIR LOOK. He joins Craig to discuss how we can put your best face forward this spring with help from renowned facial and reconstructive surgeon.
“Many patients are simply looking for small changes, maybe they are tired of the crows’ feet around their eyes or they would like fuller, plumper lips. For these, injectable fillers are a great answer. But, there are options to great looking skin at every age,” said Dr. Nassif.
Here is Dr. Nassif’s guide for great skin at any age:
Twenties — For 20-year-olds, their skin looks great, but sunscreen is essential. To protect their skin from premature aging moisturize with at least spf 15 daily. Injectables like Restylane offer younger patients a way to plump up lips and add volume to checks and chins.
Thirties – In the 30s, the skin can look drier, thinner and wrinkles may start to appear around the eyes and mouth. Plenty of water and moisturizing twice a day keeps the skin hydrated. Another tool, injectables and fillers such as BOTOX, Juvederm, Sculptra and Radiesse combat the early signs of aging by filling in wrinkles, or plumping up lips and cheeks.
Forties – During the forties, the skin’s cell renewal and collagen production begins to slow down leaving the skin looking dull. Age spots, freckles, and pores become more noticeable. Exfoliation and chemical peels help get rid of dead skin cells and reveal smoother skin. A blepharoplasty can be a good option for those with sagging skin around the eyes.
Fifties — Dry skin and wrinkles are common in the 50s, as well as sagging skin around the neck and chin so good skin care is essential. Other ways to fight aging include dermal fillers to add fullness and facelifts, like the Anti-Gravity Lift, to address saggy cheeks, chins and jowls
Sixties — Moisturizer is critical in the 60s. Decreased circulation to the skin makes it look lighter and dryer. Laser resurfacing and microdermadrasion help address skin issues. While an upper and lower facelift or facial implants correct heavy jowls and deep facial lines.
Cosmetic surgery should strive to create a natural look that is in harmony with your features and appearance.
