CONFESSIONS OF A FEMALE DERMATOLOGY SPECIALIST
Fine wine gets better with age…our skin, well, it’s a little more complicated. As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin – the building blocks of healthy skin. After 50 years-old, we lose estrogen and our skin naturally becomes thinner and drier as a result.
As a Board Certified Physician Assistant in Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine, the majority of my cosmetic patients come to me to address fine lines and creases, hollowness, as well as loose or sagging skin around the jawline and neck. To help my patients turn back the clock, I find these tried and true methods the most effective.
How To Turn Back The Clock
1) Customize a skincare regimen
I find that patients over 50 benefit tremendously from daily maintenance in the form of moisturizers, serums, scrubs, exfoliants and hydrafacials. Hydrafacials keep your skin glowing by exfoliation, extraction and infusion of serums which provide anti-aging benefits.
Once a patient has a daily routine locked down, the skin is more receptive to restorative treatments. Morpheus 8 is a cutting edge microneedling device that I’m very excited about and believe my patients will love. Morpheus 8 creates new collagen and elastin and tightens the skin. It improves fine lines and wrinkles, smooths out uneven skin textures, treats hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, and can even help fade stretch marks.
Unlike previous technologies that either stimulated collagen or tightened skin, Morpheus does both simultaneously. This technology is applied over a series of three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and is followed by once-a-year maintenance. The full results appear in about three months after the final session, once new collagen has developed. You’ll notice an improvement in skin texture, tone and quality. Morpheus will help patients on a structural level and take them a step closer to the jawline of their 20s.
Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that cause muscle relaxation, effectively smoothing out the wrinkles around your eyes and forehand. Filler can restore volume that has been lost by sculpting lips, plumping cheeks, re-sculpting jawlines, and lifting wrinkles and depressions in the face. Chemical peels are an affordable way to address skin discoloration and fine lines as well. They can also address texture and tone and tighten the skin. PDO threads (Polydioxanone) are a minimally invasive treatment that can lift and reposition the skin. These stimulate collagen, as well as lifting tissue.
Skin care may seem more overwhelming after 50 years-old, but we’re here to help make it more manageable. If you’re interested in learning more about the above, please schedule a complimentary consultation.
