Despite having a good skin care routine, fine lines and loose skin will become noticeable once you reach a certain age. For most, it starts in the late 30s or 40s. Don’t worry – there are several ways you can maintain youthful, vibrant skin in your 40s, 50s, and even into your 60s if you start now. Follow these simple steps for a subtle yet noticeable improvement in your facial skin.
CLEANSE, MOISTURIZE, PROTECT, AND EXFOLIATE THE SKIN
Shawn Guyuron with the Zeeba Clinic suggests a basic skin care program should include the following:
- Wash your face daily and apply a moisturizer that contains SPF 30.
- At night, apply a moisturizer that contains vitamin A (retinol)
- Exfoliate the skin once a week.
The Zeeba Clinic uses and recommends ZO Skin Health Inc. products, a complete line of skin care products developed by Dr. Zien Obagi.
REMOVE DAMAGED SKIN WITH PEELS AND DERMABLADING
Added to a daily routine, periodic use of non-invasive procedures like chemical peels and dermablading, can have a positive effect on skin that has sun damage, scars, age spots, and more. These procedures can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote collagen production, which can improve the tone and texture of your skin.
A chemical peel is a non-surgical exfoliating treatment used to remove the damaged outer layer of skin. This treatment can be customized to your skin type and improve the following issues:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Blotchy complexion
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Fine wrinkles
Dermablading is another non-surgical exfoliating option that can be combined with a chemical peel or done alone. This procedure uses a sterile surgical scalpel to lightly scrape the outer layer of skin. It is one of the latest trends in skin care. Dermablading accomplishes the following:
- Deep exfoliation of dead skin cells to remove sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Removes unwanted facial hair (i.e., “peach fuzz”)
Shawn Guyuron also recommends following the dermablading procedure with the ZO Stimulator Peel, which can extend the effects of the dermablading procedure.
REJUVENATE THE SKIN WITH LASER THERAPY
Broad-band laser light therapy (BBL) uses a specially developed laser light that focuses on the skin pores and hair follicles. It is used to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin at the cellular level, giving the skin a natural glow from the inside out. Laser therapy helps with:
- Removal of unwanted facial hair
- Improving overall skin condition
- Tone and tighten loose, aging skin
- Improve appearance of scars
Some of these procedures are not appropriate for every skin type, so it is important to consult with a trained professional like Shawn Guyuron with the Zeeba Clinic who can personally design a skin care program perfect for you.
