Addressing Skin Care Concerns Across Age Groups

At every stage of life, our skin evolves and requires specific care tailored to its changing needs. The journey to healthy and radiant skin is an ongoing process that varies from adolescence to adulthood and beyond.

Skin Care Physicians of Georgia and our SkinSense Medical Spa understand the unique challenges each age group faces and offers expert advice to help you maintain a glowing complexion through every chapter of your life.

Adolescence – Navigating the Path to Clear Skin

The teenage years often come with changing hormone levels that can trigger acne breakouts. Adolescents should use a gentle yet consistent skincare routine to maintain a clear complexion. Cleansing twice daily with a mild cleanser helps remove excess oil and dirt. If needed, non-comedogenic moisturizers prevent dryness without clogging pores. Regular exfoliation can aid in unclogging pores.

Additionally, acne treatments and peels can speed clearing of unwanted pimples. Our team of experienced aestheticians can evaluate your needs and create a tailored treatment plan to help your teenager achieve and maintain clearer skin. Should acne scarring develop, we have results-oriented options to improve and clear acne scars regardless of a patient’s skin pigmentation.

In Your 20’s and 30’s – Focusing on Prevention and Protection 

As people enter their 20’s and 30’s, early signs of aging can become a concern. Incorporating antioxidants, such as vitamin C serums, into your skincare routine helps fight free radicals and prevent premature aging. Broad-spectrum sunscreen is a non-negotiable, protecting against harmful UV rays that contribute to fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. Our patients rave about our mineral-based sunscreens for men and women. Our SkinSense Medical Spa professionals can suggest clinical skincare products that address your specific skin type and concerns. This is the time that many of our patients begin milder treatments like chemical peels and Hydrafacial. Additionally, maintaining hydration through water intake and moisturizers supports skin health from the inside out.

In Your 40’s and 50’s – Addressing Fine Lines and Loss of Elasticity 

By the time we reach our 40s and 50s, we see the effects of our environment on our skin. Unwanted brown and red spots, along with fine lines becoming more obvious. We see additional changes of volume loss of subcutaneous tissues, reduced muscle tone, as well as collagen and elastin fiber loss. Hyaluronic acid, which plumps up our skin, decreases also. 

Our expert aestheticians and physicians put together individualized treatment plans with complementary treatments and procedures to provide solutions to these problems. Fraxel, pulse dye, and IPL treatments target unwanted browns and red pigments. 

Many of our patients opt for fillers and injectables like Botox to address volume loss and fine lines around the eyes, forehead, and elsewhere. Simple non-surgical treatments such as Emface lift the forehead and midface while adding improved definition of the jawline and neck.  Topical products containing retinoids, peptides, and exosomes promote collagen synthesis and improve skin texture. Hyaluronic acid-based products assist in retaining moisture, while regular exfoliation helps accelerate cell turnover for a more youthful appearance. Professional treatments like chemical peels or laser therapies can provide more intensive results. Other go-to treatments include our CO2 laser CoolPeel treatments.

Mature Skin – Embracing Graceful Aging 

In the later years, the focus shifts to maintaining the skin’s health and resilience. Rich, hydrating creams and serums replenish moisture and improve the skin barrier. Regular skin checks become vital to monitor any changes that may indicate skin conditions like skin cancer. In addition to dermal fillers and Botox, we improve and remove wrinkles, help neck contours and sagging jowls with both non and minimally invasive office procedures. We want to maintain, enhance, and restore your skin’s appearance and health.
