Age Groups

Aging is a natural process that occurs when the skin loses its elasticity and succumbs to gravity and time. Although genetics play an important role, small changes in daily habits, diet, lifestyle and even stress levels will help prevent premature wrinkling and sagging. External factors including UV rays, weather patterns and pollution also contribute to the overall quality of the epidermis in both the long and short term. Without proper precaution, these factors can even escalate to skin cancer and additional damaging symptoms. However, some signs of aging are unavoidable without expert anti-aging skin care treatments.

How we treat our skin in our youth has a profound impact on how we age as the years go by. Thankfully, the encouraging and supportive staff of The Skin Studios in Lake Charles, LA, can offer a renewed sense of vitality with the use of customized non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Whatever your age, effective anti-aging treatments can improve your appearance and tackle your unique skin conditions. Just call Allison Clement, MD (337) 474-1220 to schedule an appointment today!

Skin Care Factors Based on Age

In Your Teens

As we get older, gradual changes in our skin occur, impacted by many external and internal causes, even during the teenage years. While the effects of aging may not be seen for years to come, effective teenage skin care can prevent premature aging and conditions that worsen in the years to come. It is recommended that you take into consideration that everyone's skin aging is unique. Although there are particular factors which signal maturity, lifestyle differences and genetics determine the biggest outcome of the overall health of the skin.

Common teenage skin conditions, such as acne and excess hair, can have both an immediate and long-term impact on skin health. When treated right during these years, acne scars and more can be prevented. If you are experiencing problematic dermal conditions, it is advised that you seek the advice of an expert that cares. The Skin Studios team knows the importance of looking your best and will guide you on the right path to rejuvenation.

In Your 20's

Clarity, tonality, and resilience are peaked during your 20's due to heightened elasticity and strength. Minimal wrinkling, sagging or signs of weathering usually occur and complications at this time are usually a result of using the wrong products, an ineffective regimen, hormonal imbalances, or improper dermal care. Because the skin is at its strongest during this stage in life, preservation should be the goal during most skin care. It is important to seek proper treatment now as a foundation for your later years.

Acne, scarring, and other indications may occur at this time as a result of imbalances. Speak with the skin care team at The Skin Studios for more information.

In Your 30's

During your 30's, aging skin is still quite sturdy, yet needs a bit more guidance to maintain its firmness and reduce wrinkling. With fewer signs of fading than in your 40's, conditions such as pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, and stress levels can greatly impact the emergence of fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

Eye creams, sun protection, makeup removers, antioxidants, and exfoliants will help to properly cleanse and guard against deterioration. The Skin Studios assists both women and men ages 30 and beyond in considering effective treatments for sun exposure, hyperpigmentation, and further epidermal issues.

In Your 40's

By this stage in life, you may notice crow's feet and wrinkles, which may appear deeper than usual at this stage. Lines aren't as easy to diminish due to reduced estrogen levels. Dryness is also prevalent due to generally reduced hydration, as well as a loss of fat and suppleness around the chest and neck, leading to sagging skin and deeper lines in the aging skin.

Scaling and loss of fat tissue can cause dullness and make you appear older than your actual age. The Skin Studios uses non-invasive technology to bring vibrancy back to your complexion with the use of laser and chemical procedures.

In Your 50's

Loose skin is one of the major concerns facing people aged 50 and beyond. The acceleration of the aging process, coupled with dryness and slack skin, will usually require products that can deliver dramatic results. Other conditions, such as hollow eyes, loss of muscle tone, and sagginess, can also create a weathered appearance.

An appointment with The Skin Studios for anti-aging skin treatment options involving skin rejuvenation and continued anti-aging treatments will give you a revived complexion that lasts. The use of non-invasive technology that infuses replenishing ingredients and long-lasting dermal solutions means that naturally healthy skin can be possible throughout the 50's.

In Your 60's

Menopausal acne, a dry sluggish complexion, and decreased collagen are the culprits behind problematic skin for men and women in their 60's. As in your 50's, moisture is still vital for maintaining a youthful glow. You may even experience unsightly age spots and increased sagging along the jawline and face. An effective procedure that provides suppleness and tightening of the skin may be desired.

Let the experts work their magic. With gentle, state-of-the-art technology designed to lift and revive tired skin, The Skin Studios can provide the best aging skin care to get you looking radiant again.
