Your Skin and the Aging Process:

20s 

your skin at age 20This is your prime and it is the time to create good habits!  Prevention is key! Cleanse, moisturize and protect!  If acne is still an issue, a mild chemical peel or our skin rejuvenation treatment are both great options.  IPL can help if you are starting to see minimal signs of sun damage!
 

30s

your skin at age 30Collagen production starts to slow down and slight signs of aging may start around eyes and mouth.  Botox injections, as a preventative measure, especially for crows feet and the glabella are an option. Stay hydrated as skin may begin getting a bit drier.  Light chemical peels help encourage cell turnover and are a good option.  Melanin production slows down so skin doesn’t tan as easily as it may have in our teens and 20s.  Areas on the face like nasolabial folds start to lose volume so a hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm or Restylane may be appropriate.
 

40s

your skin at age 40Pores become more enlarged and skin appears more dull. The texture and tone of your skin may start showing signs of accumulative sun damage and age spots are more prevelant. Cell renewal and collagen production continue to slow more and more.  Continue to exfoliate with chemical peels or at home products such as retinols to rejuvenate the skin. You also may be a candidate for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for sagging skin around the eyes that will give you a more refreshed appearance.  If this is a concern, you may schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Motykie.
 

50s and Beyond

your skin at age 50Wrinkles are more apparent and gravity is starting to take a toll.  The decrease in the production of estrogen affects your skin, increasing dryness and reducing elasticity. Juvashape, a radiofrequency device that our office offers, is a perfect way to combat skin that is losing elasticity, for instance, the neck, arms and legs . Volume and fullness in the cheeks starts to diminish and causes loose skin and sagging. Minimally invasive procedures can restore fullness to your cheeks and lips, such as injectible fillers. A facelift may be considered by some patients. Dr. Motykie can reposition and tighten the underlying muscle and tissue and remove the excess skin that gives patients a more youthful appearance.


Please remember that while Dr. Motykie and his team at Moytkie MedSpa are here to help with your cosmetic needs, we encourage all of our patients to protect themselves in the sun, eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water and get lots of rest!  Nothing makes you glow on the outside more than from within!  And be kind to others… there’s nothing more beautiful than that.
