In your 30s, your skin care regimen should focus on action.

This means that you have to be more proactive in amping up your treatments as hormonal changes and stress throw your skin out of sync. This is also a time to redeem your skin or do some damage control if you were not as keen on skincare in your 20s.

Upgrade your moisturizer

In this new decade of life, your skin needs a higher concentration of Vitamins A and C to address any pigmentation problems. Skin discoloration is common in this age, either due to sun damage, pregnancy, and hormonal changes.

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.

Making it right with retinol

 

Retinol become particularly important at this age because it stimulates cellular turnover.

 

It exfoliates the skin and promotes DNA repair, consequently reversing sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.

 

We have medical grade retinol creams by Alumier MD, available at different strengths.

Fill it in with Fillers

 

As facial lines become deeper and more noticeable, anti-wrinkle treatments are also gaining more favour.

 

The most common areas treated at this age are the lower eyelid areas and the tear trough areas. Dermal fillers are also requested by some patients who are starting to see volume loss along the areas around the eyes, lips, and cheekbones.  Introducing fillers in these areas restores volume and enhances projection.

 

The effectiveness of dermal fillers depends on how a person is aging and how well the tissues hold on to the filler. We offer free consultations with our aesthetic practitioners to discuss the best option for you.
