How To Prevent Aging In Your 20s
Women in this age range want to prevent damage and maintain healthy skin. They see their mothers and grandmothers dealing with signs of aging and are encouraged to be proactive and avoid some of those concerns, like brown spots and wrinkles. Thinking they are invincible, 20-somethings may be more likely to seek out tanning beds and beach time than sun hats and protective clothing. Hormonal issues that generally affect women in this age category such as acne and melasma, as well as acne scarring from teenage years and cellulite or stretch marks are other common concerns I see from patients in their 20s.
In your 20s collagen production is slowing down, and the aging process has started. Non-invasive treatments and a consistent skincare routine in your 20s will save you wrinkles and pigmentation, not to mention lots of expensive treatments down the road.
Neuromodulators – This refers to a class of drugs that includes products like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau. “Baby Botox” is a technique that uses a small amount of neuromodulators at a lesser frequency as a preventative measure. If you are stopping those stubborn lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place, it’s easier to keep them from becoming a permanent fixture.
Fillers – Fillers are commonly used to restore volume that has been lost by the aging process. While you aren’t at this stage yet in your 20s, fillers can be used for facial shaping and symmetry. Common treatment areas include the lips, chin and acne scars.
HydraFacial – A clinical facial, the HydraFacial cleanses, extracts and hydrates pores. This treatment is great to maintain bright, dewy skin in your 20s and helps with the penetration of medical-grade skincare.
BBL – Using light energy to treat redness and brown spots, BBL is great to rid your skin of unwanted pigmentation in your 20s without the downtime of more intensive lasers.
