Having younger looking skin is not your chief concern when you're in your 20s. More common procedures in this age group include breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. But healing acne scars and skin irregularities are common. Alongside protecting your skin in your 20s, there are procedures to help you have glowing skin on your wedding day and other special ocassions. Recommended procedures to achieve this include non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as facial scar revision treatment, microdermabrasion, deep chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing.
During your 30s, you'll start to notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so it's time to start combating the early signs of aging. Rejuvenating your appearance can include both surgical procedures and traditional skin care treatments. There are non-invasive treatments available like laser skin tightening, portrait plasma regeneration and photodynamic therapy to help you have younger looking skin. Injectables and fillers like Botox, Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse smooth wrinkles and prevent signs of aging.
Premature aging, fluctuating weight after pregnancy and sagging skin—this is the age women usually consider more invasive procedures. Eyes tend to show the first signs of aging. An eyelid lift or brow lift will rejuvenate the eye area and take years off your face. A brow lift will rid the area of creases and wrinkles, common during this age.
