Collagen 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.
50s and Beyond
Wrinkles 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.
