Checkered Beauty Past? Jump Back On the Beauty Bandwagon!

In your 20s, it’s all about prevention. Most aging starts with UV exposure, so using a good broad spectrum sunscreen is key. Get facials and use a good skin care regimen. Hydration is also important — apply a high-quality moisturizer and drink water.  If you didn’t worry about prevention in your 20s – you have a checkered beauty past.  It’s never too late to jump back on the beauty bandwagon in your 30s.

The 30s is when you start to notice fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels can help with this and you need to exfoliate your skin to slough off the old and bring in the new skin cells. You may be ready to start considering Botox and laser treatments. The Photofacial (IPL) laser can reduce brown spots and red blood vessels from sun damage and trigger collagen growth.  If you didn’t worry about the fine lines and wrinkles or exfoliating in your 30s – you have a checkered beauty past.  It’s never too late to jump back on the beauty bandwagon in your 40s.

The 40s is when you really start doing more. Now you want things to go back to the way they were. You want your cheeks to be a little fuller, and you want the lines filled. You are augmenting with fillers such as Juvéderm, Juvederm Voluma XC, Radiesse, and Restylane. You are also getting more powerful laser treatments and deeper chemical peels to erase UV damage.  If you didn’t start doing fillers, injectables or laser treatments in your 40s, you have a checkered beauty past.  It’s never too late to jump back on the beauty bandwagon in your 50s.

The 50s is when you start getting more aggressive about laser treatments. eMatrix is highly effective as a skin tightener.  If you didn’t start getting more aggressive with laser treatments in your 50s, you have a checkered beauty past.  It’s still not too late to jump back on the beauty bandwagon in your 60s.

The 60s and beyond you’re getting deeper laser treatments that require more down time, but you’re definitely seeing the fruits of your labor with results. This is when you may consider a full multiple treatment liquid laser facelift. If you didn’t start with deeper laser treatments in your 60s you may be just fine with your checkered beauty past.  c’est la vie, you say?

Well, we say it’s never too late to jump back on the beauty bandwagon. Botox is forgiving of your checkered beauty past as it makes fine lines and wrinkles disappear.  Juvederm Voluma XC will give you a pass: it’s like a facelift without surgery as your mid-face is filled, contoured and lifted.  Juvederm Ultra could care less and won’t judge because it treats nasolabial folds and adds volume to the face, smoothing wrinkles and folds.   eMatrix will give you a nice fix as it increases collagen, removes scars, corrects wrinkles, improves texture and tightens and tones your skin.
