Tips for Giving Your 50-Something Skin the TLC it Needs

When your skin hits the half-century mark, the telltale signs of aging can really start to make an appearance. This is the time to start considering a slightly more aggressive arsenal of skin care treatments to attack aging at its core and restore a youthful glow to your complexion. In addition to a wealth of high-quality, anti-aging skin care products you can use at home, the following professional treatments available at New Visage may give skin the boost it needs at this stage of life.

Minimizing Wrinkles

Wrinkles become more embedded into your skin by this age, and it will require more than a topical retinol cream and some good foundation to hide them. Injectable treatments, such as Botox or Juvederm are an effective way to hide those telltale signs for many months at a time. As a general rule, nueromodulators like Botox work best in the upper portion of the face, while dermal fillers like Juvederm tend to address creases around the nose, mouth and jawline.

Restoring Volume

Facial volume is another casualty of the middle years, as hollows begin to develop under the eyes and along the cheekbones. Lack of volume can make you look more aged and weary than you truly feel, but the good news is injections of dermal fillers can restore your youthful volume and refresh your entire appearance. Smooth formulas like Voluma can address larger treatment areas like the cheeks, producing natural, long-lasting results.

Addressing Skin Laxity

As we age, our bodies produce less of the essential skin supporting substance collagen. In addition to causing the volume loss described above, collagen depletion leads to skin laxity and loose, hanging skin. One of the most concerning signs of aging, loose skin can now be treated with non-surgical treatments like Accent XL skin tightening and Ultherapy. Both procedures use state-of-the-art technology to restore skin to its firmer, more youthful state.

Reversing Sun Damage

Sun exposure takes its toll on the skin over the years, leading to irregularities in texture and tone and the appearance of brown spots known as “age spots.” These signs of aging can also be addressed with effective non-surgical treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. Both treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and involve little discomfort and downtime afterward.

The candles on your birthday cake may be increasing, but your skin doesn’t have to give away your advanced years. With the right skin care program, you can maintain your youthful glow and vitality well into your 50s and beyond. To learn more about any of these treatments, contact New Visage at 202-808-2NEW.
