Preventative Steps To Help With Signs Of Aging

October 25, 2013

"Women begin losing volume in their 30's, with fat and bone loss progressing with each decade. In an individual with very low body fat, Sculptra can be used in small amounts early to maintain the convexities of a thin face, or to improve the attractiveness of a face that has poor convexity in an area congenitally. Botox is often begun in a patient's 30's for dynamic wrinkles in lighter doses. I have used it in patients in their 20's if they have deep frown lines that run in their family." says Dr. Olson.

In this Hot Topic article from New Beauty "Stop The First Signs Of Aging" they breakdown certain issues you may start to notice.

As early as your mid- to late-20s and into your 30s, you may start to notice the very first signs of aging, which are usually subtle but still bothersome. What was once a smooth complexion may now be home to small sunspots, crow’s-feet, dark under-eye circles and uneven texture. Instead of letting the signs of aging get the best of you, take matters into your own hands and correct the changes that you’re seeing—you may even be able to prevent them from progressing as you get older with the proper plan of attack.

Crow’s-Feet
These small fine lines are easy to prevent and even easier to correct. Regular use of a highly moisturizing eye cream helps keep the delicate eye area supple and less prone to lines and wrinkles. To reduce their appearance and prevent new ones from forming, your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can inject the area with Botox or Dysport.

Under-Eye Bags, Darkness and Puffiness
With age, the area under the eyes becomes dark and puffy. Makeup can help camouflage bags and circles, but injectables and proper skin care can reverse them. Hyaluronic acid fillers can fill in hollows to give the illusion of fewer bags. You’You will also want to use Retin-A and a product with growth factors to thicken thinning skin around the eyes. Another method of treating dark circles is with conservative use of hydroquinone, which may be irritating to some. Chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or fractional CO2 lasers can also help tighten the under-eye area.

Hyperpigmentation
Discolored skin can result from a variety of factors. Protecting your skin from the sun is important, but in-office procedures and prescription-strength ingredients can make a difference, too. When treating sun spots, the first line of defense is almost always hydroquinone, which stops the production of pigment in its tracks. If your skin is still discolored, your doctor may choose to use a light laser, like IPL, or a fractional laser for more severe spots.

Nasolabial Folds
If you’re starting to notice lines around your mouth that start at the corner of your nose and extend downwards, those are nasolabial folds, which, if not addressed, may worsen with time. Hylauronic acid fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane are best for filling in these lines, especially among women in their late 20s and early 30s. The next best thing to injectables that doesn’t necessitate the use of a needle is a topical product that claims to add volume.
