Keep Calm: You're Turning Thirty

It can be a scary transition departing your twenties and entering your thirties. As a 21 year old, no one expected you to think about saving for retirement, making your mortgage payments, or climbing up the corporate ladder. But now that you’ve reached a new decade in your life, it’s not just your responsibilities that may be plaguing your mind. There could be an unwelcomed change that’s also starting to take shape: wrinkles.

Wrinkles are faint lines that appear on the face and usually affect people who are 35 and under. We all know aging is inevitable, but many don’t expect to see crow’s feet and frown lines as they push thirty. The good news (yes, there’s good news!) is that you don’t need to have painful surgery in order to fix them. There are actually a number of effective ways our medical estheticians can help reduce and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles.

The Best Treatments for Wrinkles at Thirty

Collagen and elastin keep our skin plump and flexible. Unfortunately, we lose both as we age. To replace it, we offer Skin Tightening treatments that work specifically to increase collagen. Our systems use broad band light (BBL) which stimulate collagen production by putting heat into the tissue, causing it to contract and tighten.

After your Skin Tightening treatments, we recommend following-up with Photorejuvenation. Fast and convenient, Photorejuvenation treatments can be done over your lunch hour. This also uses non-invasive, innovative BBL technology that is extremely effective to reverse the signs of aging. In fact, a recent study from Stanford University revealed BBL treatments can actually change a person’s genetic DNA to help reverse the aging process.

While these treatments will produce effective results, in order to maintain them you need to be using products that will continue to hydrate and nourish your skin. Like we said in last week’s blog post, it is so important to use the right skin care because what you put directly on your epidermis can determine the look and texture on a day-to-day basis.

If you were trying to hide a baseball under a bed sheet versus a fluffy down comforter, which would you think would do the better job? It’s the same with your skin; fine lines can disappear when your epidermis is evenly hydrated. To ensure you’re receiving enough moisture, the Line Tamer Primer from Colorescience works amazing well.

Other must-haves are the Osmosis Immerse and Osmosis Quench Plus Hydrating Plumper. The Immerse contains powerful antioxidants sourced from natural ingredients like blueberries, raspberries, and calendula. It soothes, moisturizes and replenishes the skin, while the Quench Plus is perfect for under your mineral make-up because it’s formulated to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while firming and evening your skin tone. All of these products are available at our office as well as our online store.
