The most popular treatment for people in their 20’s may include lip enhancementbrow liftsforehead linescrows feet treatment and facial slimming – mostly for aesthetic reasons. (i.e trends).


However, speaking in terms of anti-ageing, as we head towards our late 20s people start to develop fine lines. Factors like Sun damage and smoking increases your chances of developing lines as you age. 

Below we discuss different options for patients in their 20’s. 

Firstly skincare, In addition to investing in a sunscreen you won’t mind wearing every single day such as our Alumier Md Sheer Hydration (it’s a non-negotiable), maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and cultivating good skincare habits (think: always washing your face before bed), your twenties are the time to establish a relationship with one of our skincare specialists. Whether you are dealing with hormonal acne (sadly, pimples don’t magically disappear when you leave your teenage years), or are curious about injectables or other minimally invasive procedures, a professional opinion could go a long way towards long term skin health.

MICRONEEDLING WITH SKINPEN


Microneedling
is a minimally invasive treatment that improves cell turnover and promotes collagen and elastin production. 


By microneedling we are mimicking the skin’s natural healing process — allowing for fresh blood supply, cell turnover, and the production of collagen and elastin.


Microneedling is also great for treating atrophic (a.k.a. depressed) scars, specifically those caused by acne. Severe teenage and adult acne can damage the skin, and, if the body produces too little or too much collagen during the healing process, the skin will scar. The micro-wounds caused by microneedling help trigger the body’s natural healing process, which can lead to the improved appearance of scars.

CHEMICAL PEELS

 

Chemical peels, the treatment relies on — chemical exfoliators to slough off dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin (think: smoothing fine lines and correcting mild to moderate hyperpigmentation).

 

With both at-home and professional-strength options available, the potency can be tailored to a patient’s skin type and level of sensitivity.

 

Another factor that can alter chemical peel capabilities is the peeling agent. While glycolic acid can penetrate deeply and is ideal for anti-aging, lactic acid is recommended for dry skin.

 

Likewise, a beta-hydroxy peel, containing salicylic acid, provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties to heal acne-prone skin.

INJECTABLES

 

You’ve likely heard of the idea of “preventative Botox” (i.e. using anti-wrinkle injections to ward off future lines and wrinkles), but will introducing anti wrinkle treatments into your skincare regimen in your twenties really have a long term benefit? The short answer is yes.

 

The sooner you prevent animation of the muscle, the sooner you prevent the permanent lines over time.

HOMECARE

 

Additionally, there is no better time than the present to adopt a skincare routine. Our skincare specialist recommends a four-step regimen that includes a cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, and retinol. The latter is a jack of all trades that can treat everything from acne to wrinkles, though it may require a bit of patience to work up a tolerance. When it comes to sunscreen, you should be wearing SPF 30 at a minimum. Finding a broad-spectrum formula that will protect against both UVA and UVB rays is also key. We have a range of medical grade skincare products – Alumier MD and ZO.

 

Since the twenties are less about correcting and more about preventing, minimally invasive treatments like microneedling, chemical peels, and injectables can offer both immediate and long term benefits.
