Q A For Your Skinformation. I’m 38 years old and I have noticed that my face is starting to sag–not badly, but it’s definitely not as firm and smooth as it used to be. I’d like to be proactive and do something now rather than waiting until I need a facelift–what do you recommend for someone my age? Q A I don’t wear sunscreen every day, but when I mentioned this, a friend told me that I should-regardless of the weather. Is she right? Absolutely! UV rays can damage our skin even on overcast days. We recommend sunscreen all year round, whether it’s sunny or not. Another tip for maximum sun protection: apply an antioxidant on your skin in the morning to help protect against wrinkle-promoting infrared rays. Some sunscreens contain antioxidants, saving you a step in your morning routine. We take a comprehensive approach to facial aging, making sure that nutrition, lifestyle, and skincare products support your goal of healthy, pretty skin. Then we supplement with procedures to help you look your best. In your age range, many patients benefit from non-surgical treatments such as injectable fillers and collagen stimulators to reverse early sagging. Treatments with lasers and other energy devices are another great way to help firm and smooth the skin.
