When you enter your 40’s, anti-aging and taking care of your skin seems a bit more important as you begin to experience more drastic changes. It is around this time that wrinkles start to appear deeper, fine lines become bigger, and skin texture really changes. A great skin care regimen and an experienced dermatologist are critical to maintaining healthy, glowing skin in your 40’s and beyond.
Some of the biggest concerns we hear from patients in their 40’s are about the following issues:
A few of the most popular treatments to address these concerns for patients in their 40’s are:
- Botox/Dysport/Xeomin & Dermal Fillers
- IPL Photofacial
- Non-Ablative Fractionated Lasers
- Laser Tattoo Removal
- Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
- Skin-tightening treatments such as Ultherapy and ThermiRF
Botox/Dysport/Xeomin & Dermal Fillers
After several decades of dynamic facial muscle movement, wrinkles become more evident when we hit 40. Botox/Dysport/Xeomin is a safe and effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and bunny lines. By relaxing the muscles causing the wrinkles, your face can appear smoother and younger. For those wrinkles and facial hollows caused by volume loss, dermal fillers can effectively fill in and smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face. It is quite common for our board-certified dermatologists in San Diego to recommend a combination of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin and fillers in what is known as a liquid facelift, or non-surgical facelift, for patients in their 40’s. Simple injectable treatments performed by our expert injectors on a regular basis can keep you looking young and rejuvenated!
The IPL photofacial is a great treatment for patients struggling with sunspots, hyperpigmentation, and/or rosacea. We generally begin to notice the effects of the sun on our skin in our 30’s, with more sunspots and age spots making their appearance in our 40’s. We commonly recommend IPL treatments every 6 months, along with a good skincare regimen and sun protection, as treatment for repairing and preventing sunspots.
Non-Ablative Fractionated Lasers
Non-Ablative Fractionated Lasers are good for improving skin texture as it changes with age. Our Board-Certified Dermatologists in SD use a variety of lasers to address your specific needs to leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. The Non-Ablative Fractionated Lasers like the Fraxel, Affirm and the new ResurFX are designed to treat issues such as uneven skin tone, rough texture, and fine lines.
