If you have started to notice changes in your skin in your late 30s or early 40s, you are not alone. This is when most people see their skin start to sag around the forehead and jowls, and some areas may look more sunken, such as around the eyes and cheeks area. These changes tend to make your face look older. Fortunately there are many treatments that can help and reverse the aging process that do not involve invasive cosmetic surgery.
Start by evaluating what you put on your face. Sunscreen is a must during the day, and should be a broad spectrum SPF30+, to prevent premature aging from sun exposure. At night a vitamin A derived cream is recommended to improve skin texture and help collagen production, either a prescription tretinoin (Retin-A) or a retinol. Antioxidants and a good hydrator are of course something that should be applied daily as well.
If you are doing all your home work with a good skin regime, what is then a good treatment to do that target three of the major concerns that we battle with when we age; wrinkles, texture and laxity. The answer is micro needling.
Micro needling is safe on all skin types, and with little to no down time it will improve the skin texture, tighten the skin and fade acne scars. Tighten slack areas and stimulate new collagen that is lost with age. Micro needling is used mainly on the face, neck and chest, but can be used on any body part that needs collagen stimulation.
Micro needling creates micro channels in the skin. When those channels are created the skins own repair response is to start producing collagen and elastin, this is to heal that controlled injury that was just created. That in turn make our skin tighter and smoother.
A series of 3-6 micro needling treatments is always recommended, depending on what your skin concern is. Treatments should be spaced 4 weeks apart, as overstimulation with cause the opposite effect and can break down collagen instead of building it up.
Micro needling has become the go-to treatment at a lot of medical practices just because it is safe for all skin types and that the downtime is so minimal. If you have not tried this phenomenal skin treatment yet, I highly recommend it, not just to fight the signs of aging, but also to prevent them.
