Aging affects everyone differently, but there is a common pattern of events that people typically follow as they grow older. Being aware of the aging process can help you manage signs of aging and maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible. Here’s what you can expect over the years, as well as some solutions that can help you stay ahead of aging.
During Your 20s
Very few people begin to experience signs of aging in their 20s. The 20s are actually a great time to anticipate the effects of aging and take some preventative measures. Treatments like Botox® can help prevent the development of wrinkles, ensuring that you remain youthful well into your 30s. Laser hair removal is also popular with patients in their 20s, as they have plenty of time to enjoy their results.
During Your 30s
In your 30s, you may begin to experience some volume loss in the face as a result of aging. Although this may not produce significant wrinkles and folds just yet, the loss of volume can still noticeably age the face. Dermal fillers and injectables like Botox®, Juvederm®, and Restylane® can be a great way to restore a natural-looking volume to the skin and prolong your youthfulness.
During Your 40s
During your 40s, you’ll probably begin to notice some more defined wrinkles and volume loss. Dermal fillers and injectables can still be an effective solution during this time. Alternatively, laser skin resurfacing can help remove damaged skin to eliminate wrinkles, age spots, and other cosmetic concerns.
During Your 50s and Beyond
Those in their 50s and older will notice that their skin is steadily sagging and losing volume. While injectable treatments can help minor signs of aging, more severe signs of aging may require facial surgeries like a facelift or a neck lift. These procedures can eliminate loose, sagging skin to rejuvenate your appearance.
