Whether you’re 16 or 60, skin health is an indispensable part of your overall health and appearance. Taking care of your skin preserves its quality and vitality and can help you maintain a youthful look through the passing years. Our skin care experts, under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin Schlechter, can evaluate your skin and craft a customized skin care plan to help you achieve healthy, younger-looking skin. At-home skin care practices combined with skin care products and spa services can maximize your skin health to keep you looking vibrant and youthful.
Skin Care Through The Ages
A personalized skin care plan begins with a skin analysis and knowing your skin’s needs. Age is the strongest indicator of the type of treatment that will achieve the best results.
The following guideline demonstrates how skin ages over time and how to alter your skin care to meet your needs.
Changing hormone levels can lead to acne outbreaks and oily skin, but it can also keep the skin healthy and soft. Skin care at this age involves using gentle skin cleansers and balancing hormone levels to minimize acne, prevent acne scars, and balance skin tone.
This stage of life is about prevention. Hormone levels still need to be balanced because pregnancy, diet, stress, and lifestyle can all affect the skin. Develop good skin care habits and use gentle cleansers and sunscreens to help maintain a healthy glow.
The effects of age and gravity start to become apparent during your 30s. In addition to maintaining hormone levels, it is important that you use eye creams, retinol, vitamin treatments, and serums recommended for your skin type. Laser skin treatments, injectables, and other skin rejuvenation spa treatments can also provide significant anti-aging benefits.
In your 40s, the battle is afoot with fighting wrinkles, reversing volume loss, and preventing skin laxity. Hormone treatments, retinol, moisturizers, eye creams, and serums will help at home. In addition, BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, laser resurfacing, microneedling, and other facial rejuvenation treatments should become essential parts of your skin care routine.
Due to aging, gravity, and sun exposure, the skin becomes drier, looser, and more wrinkled when you are in your 50s. Surgery becomes a serious contender, as blepharoplasty, neck lift surgery, and facelift surgery can significantly improve the appearance of your skin. Laser treatments, microneedling, injectables, and other treatments can combat wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, skin roughness, and other aging symptoms.
Skin care options are aplenty for individuals in their 60s. Combining appropriate at-home skin care with surgical and non-surgical procedures can build upon your years of efforts or rejuvenate neglected skin.
Skin Care Treatments
Your at-home skin care regimen will go a long way in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Our skin care specialists can help you develop a personalized skin care plan with the best products for your individual needs. Your customized home skin care regimen should include an appropriate cleanser, toner, eye cream, antioxidant, moisturizer, sunscreen, and corrector. These should be applied regularly morning and night as instructed for the greatest benefit for your skin.
At The Spa at Spring Ridge, we perform a vast range of non-surgical and other spa treatments that can help you maintain optimal skin health. Revolutionary laser treatments, microneedling, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, facials, photofacials, and more can treat numerous skin conditions, including sun damage, acne scars, wrinkles, rough skin texture, hyperpigmentation, age spots, broken capillaries, and other signs of aging. Skin injection therapy with BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can erase wrinkles, add fullness, and improve facial contours.
When skin health needs more significant correction, surgery can provide a firmer hand.
