The aging process is a natural and beautiful part of life. While you should celebrate your mature skin, you also deserve to feel your best. Cosmetic dermatology treatments are a great way to address fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage as you age. Here are some of the best dermatology treatments for mature skin.
Shallow wrinkles, lines, creases, and pigmentation irregularities are some of the main concerns for adults with mature skin, and chemical peels can address all of these. During a chemical peel facial treatment, a dermatologist applies a chemical solution to the skin. They then neutralize and remove the solution. This treatment causes the upper layer of the skin to peel off, usually in the following days or weeks. There are varying depths of chemical peels, and your dermatologist will recommend a specific depth based on your skin needs.
Laser treatments can target a variety of skin concerns. Your dermatologist may recommend a Fraxel Repair laser treatment to smooth out wrinkles, even out pigmentation, and reduce the appearance of broken blood vessels. Fraxel Restore is another laser option. This treatment is great for general resurfacing, so it can be effective at reducing fine wrinkles, age spots, and certain types of sun damage.
This non-surgical treatment can gently address fine lines, wrinkles, and minor pigmentation issues. While the results may not be as drastic as some other treatments, regular dermatologist microdermabrasion sessions can keep your skin looking more even and youthful. During the treatments, your dermatologist will use a small abrasive instrument to remove dead skin cells. You might experience some flaking, redness, and dryness after the procedure, but you’ll likely notice a smoother complexion soon after.
Your skin loses elasticity and fat as you age, and this natural process can cause wrinkles, loss of facial fullness, and facial sagging. Injectable dermal fillers can be effective at restoring facial volume and filling in shallow wrinkles. A dermatologist injects the appropriate filler into the target area, and the results can last six to 12 months. While injectable fillers aren’t a replacement for procedures like face lifts, these treatments can give mature skin a boost and help you feel more confident.
Spider veins are a common skin concern for older adults. These red or purple veins often appear on the legs and face. Some individuals may also notice the appearance of reticular veins, which are bluish green in color. Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for both spider and reticular veins. During this treatment, the doctor will inject a medication into the veins. The solution will cause the veins to fade in appearance, and some patients will require several treatments to see results. Your dermatologist will refer you to a vascular surgeon for additional evaluation if necessary..
