Glen Mills Residents Ask: How Do I Look Younger at 30 and Beyond?

Botox in Philadelphia, PASomewhere around the age of 30, many people seem to wake up and realize they’re getting older. It seems natural to start wondering what they should be doing to retain their youthful look as long as possible.

Other people may not realize how much they’ve aged until they look in the mirror one day and begin to recognize some of the traditional signs of aging, such as fine lines around the mouth or at the corner of their eyes. Only then do they start scrambling for something to slow down the hands of time.

Still another group are those folks who have just been living life, and one day realize they’ve gotten much older…and where on earth have the years gone? They may think they’ve waited too long to do anything. All signs of youthfulness are gone and there’s a thin, sagging, wrinkled covering now, where their smooth, toned skin used to be.

Here are a few suggestions for the people in each of these age groups who are looking for the answer to the question ‘How Do I Look Younger at 30 and Beyond?’

Looking Younger in Your 30s

This is an ideal time to stop the signs of aging before they begin to take hold. For example, Botox® injections can remove the lines and wrinkles caused by repeated movement of the same muscles.

Thanks to today’s advancements in cosmetic treatments, there are numerous dermal fillers available, each one designed for specific areas of the face or hands.

If you’ve been unhappy with some of your facial features, such as the shape of your nose, 30-something is a good time to consider having rhinoplasty, to balance the symmetry of your face.

One highly effective method to see that youthful glow quickly returned to your face is with chemical peels. While they don’t slow down the aging process, they do remove the dead or damaged cells from the outer layer of skin, allowing the glowing dewy appearance of new skin to be revealed.

Lastly, you want to try and prevent as much damage as possible while you’re still relatively young. It’s worth investing in high-quality skin care products such as sunscreens and moisturizers to help retain your youthful glow.

Looking Younger in Your 40s

If you’ve hit your fourth decade of life, you may find dermal fillers are your new best friends. As you age, you gradually lose the infrastructure of the skin, resulting in loose, sagging skin and subsequent wrinkling. Chemical peels provide amazing results by restoring lost skin volume.

When you reach your 40s, it’s not too early to start considering a facelift or a neck lift, to help remove wrinkles on a somewhat larger scale. Your 40+-year-old skin also needs more hydration than it did when you were younger. You’ll want to make sure you’re drinking enough water, using plenty of high quality, prescription-strength moisturizer and applying sunscreen anytime you’re outdoors.

Another skin rejuvenation procedure worth considering is ablative C02 laser treatment. This is designed to help remove the outer layers of skin while also stimulating the natural production of collagen, producing long-lasting results.

Looking Younger in Your 50s and Beyond

Even in your 50s and much further beyond, you can still look younger than your actual age with the right treatments and procedures. Dermal fillers can make dramatic improvements in the face of someone 50 or older by plumping up prominent lines and wrinkles.

Facelifts and neck lifts can literally remove years from your appearance. You may want to consider incorporating eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, as part of your treatment. Eyelid surgery improves the look of sagging upper eyelids and can remove dark circles and “bags” underneath the lower lids.

And don’t forget your hands! They’re right up there with your face as far as beginning to show age first. They lose elasticity and skin volume as you age. Radiesse® is the only dermal filler approved by the FDA specifically to restore the lost skin volume of your hands.
