Once you reach your sixties, the skin has lost a lot of collagen and hyaluronic acid, leading to volume loss and loss of elasticity. This loss of elasticity means that wrinkles become deeper and skin sags noticeably. As well, age and sun spots become more numerous for mature skin and skin tone becomes uneven, while varicose and spider veins multiply.
At the MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington, DC, expert dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac and her skilled team offer highly effective solutions for skin care problems for those who have mature skin. At the Center, there are a wide variety of treatment options available to suit every skin type and problem.

Sun and Age Spot Removal with Lasers
In our sixties, sun damage becomes more apparent. Skin cancer also becomes a concern for many people who have mature skin. In addition to sun damage, age spots may start to appear. There are a variety of laser treatments for the mature skin that can deal with these conditions, though taking care of the skin by always using sunscreen and following a healthy diet are important for keeping skin looking nice in your sixties!
IPL photofacials are a common treatment for sunspots and age spots for those that have mature skin, and they can also be used to treat pre-cancerous lesions. A quality home skin care routine plus an IPL photofacial every 6 months can ward off sunspots and age spots, and keep skin smooth and healthy.
Fractional skin resurfacing lasers such as Fraxel can be used to smooth skin irregularities in your sixties, eliminate discoloration, and even skin tone. These lasers can also help to smooth fine lines and shallow wrinkles for mature skin.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
In the sixties, sagging skin becomes a major problem. A full face or neck lift surgery may not be feasible for everyone, but there are faster nonsurgical options available that minimize recovery time for mature skin. Skin tightening devices such as Ultherapy, Exilis Ultra 360, and Pelleve use revolutionary technology to non-surgically lift, tighten, and smooth the skin, resulting in a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Wrinkle Reduction for the Mature
Wrinkle reduction can also be a major concern in the sixties. There are luckily plenty of options for smoothing the appearance of even the deepest wrinkles for those who have mature skin. Botox is a popular choice for smoothing wrinkles and preventing new wrinkle formation in your sixties, while dermal fillers such as Juvederm are adept at instantly filling wrinkles and reducing their appearance.

Varicose and Spider Vein Removal
Sclerotherapy is a proven noninvasive method to eliminate spider veins for mature skin. By injecting a medication known as a sclerosing agent into the primary vein that the spider veins feed off, it destroys the spider veins, leaving your legs smoother and shorts and skirts ready! For varicose veins, laser therapy may be the best option for the mature skin. At the MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington DC, Dr. Isaac uses the Excel V1064 laser to safely and effectively remove varicose veins. Varicose and spider veins can be an unsightly age giveaway for mature skin, but they don’t have to be a permanent part of your life with these treatments!
