Stay Out of the Sun
Properly Clean Your Skin
As you age, your skin changes dramatically. Thanks to everything from changing hormone levels to gravity, there’s no way to avoid these changes. You can take steps to make sure you don’t make them worse though. Make sure that you are using products that are age appropriate. The thick moisturizer you used in your 30s or 40s is probably not going to be appropriate in your 50s or 60s. Your skin gets thinner, drier and much more sensitive as you age. Again, if you aren’t sure what to do, give us a call. We’re here to help.
You can’t reverse some signs of time with anything other than surgery. So, if you are in your 50s or 60s and are frustrated that your routine isn’t giving you the results you want, it might be time for you to consider plastic surgery or other medical intervention. The field of plastic surgery has advanced a lot in the past decade, and you may be surprised by what can be accomplished and how quickly you can heal from many procedures. If it is on your mind, come in for a consultation. It can’t hurt to get all of the facts.

Go Sparingly on Makeup
Be certain that your surgical wounds have completely healed before using makeup. Once you start wearing makeup again, use the gentlest formulas you can find. Look for gentler mineral-based options. And be sure to remove all of your makeup as part of your evening cleansing and moisturizing routine. This is especially important after surgery.
Whatever your age, and whether or not you opt for plastic surgery, taking care of your skin is important. After all, it is the only skin you’ve got. If you are considering a facelift or other procedure, please give us a call to schedule a consultation. We’ll assess your skin, listen to what your goals are, and make honest and thoughtful recommendations about what we think will get you the best possible results. We look forward to meeting you.
