Over the years, we start to notice our skin naturally change with the aging process. Each stage of life presents a different set of aging concerns for the skin. The appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, volume loss, and sagging gets increasingly noticeable throughout the years. Thankfully, there are innovative anti-aging treatments offered by Dr. Melda Isaac and her staff at MI Skin Dermatology in Washington, DC that can help you look your best at any age.
In Your 20’s
Although the skin is still smooth and supple, expression lines begin to appear on the forehead and around the eyes. Prevention should be one’s focus. Early treatment of wrinkles is essential in order to prevent deeper lines from forming. Acne can continue from adolescent years and some scarring may occur from acne flare-ups. Unwanted hair continues to be a nuisance as many women and men are tired of shaving and waxing. Adopting a preventative regime is essential for future healthy, youthful skin.

In Your 30’s
“Crow’s feet” are present around the eyes and forehead lines deepen. Frown lines (lines between the eyebrows), nasal-labial folds (lines that run from the nose to the mouth), and lines at the corners of the mouth are more noticeable. Brown spots, sun spots, and other signs of sun damage begin to appear. Skin care regimes are customized to meet the needs of one’s busy lifestyles and concerns. Neurotoxins and fillers play more of a role during this age.

In Your 40’s
Fine lines radiating from the upper lip or down turns at the corners of the mouth deepen and lengthen to the chin. The lip border loses definition and lips appear thinner. Expression lines deepen around the mouth, forehead, and brows. The neck and jawline begin to sag, leading to the formation of “jowls.” Volume loss is becoming apparent, especially in the temples and cheeks. The brow falls and eyes become more tired looking. In addition to neurotoxins and fillers, lasers and skin tightening devices play more of a role to a youthful appearance. Incorporating growth factors and peptides are essential for collagen stimulation and smoother surface.

In Your 50’s
During these years you will notice more hollowing of the temples and cheeks due to volume changes and the redistribution of facial fat and bone loss. Loss of definition and contour of the cheeks and jawline are more obvious. Neck laxity and “jowling” are more apparent. Sun spots and brown spots accumulate and intensify. “Frown” lines and expression lines continue to deepen. Incorporating a multifaceted approach with use of skin care products, fillers, neurotoxins, lasers and devices allows for youthful, healthy skin.

In Your 60’s
In your 60’s and beyond, the skin will need replenishment of lost collagen and volume. Deep set wrinkles and facial folds become more apparent and sagging becomes more prominent. The body can become covered with brown spots, uneven pigmentation, and sun damage. Bulging varicose and spider veins increase in number. Combination therapies using lasers, devices, skin care products, fillers and neurotoxins allow one to look his or her best.
