Age-Proofing Treatments

As we age, our skin changes too. When searching for solutions for your skin problems, it’s important to find a doctor who has designed treatments tailored to your age group. Dr. Julia Sabetta has pinpointed the top skin concerns of each major age group, ranging from teens to the over 50 set. She advises clients on preventative treatments and skin health care and she offers minimally invasive procedures to rejuvenate the skin. No matter your age, Dr. Julia understands your skin concerns and knows just how they should be addressed.

This guide will help you identify your skin issues, as well as the appropriate treatments by age group to help you prepare for your consultation with Dr. Julia.

Teens and 20s

Young women in their teens and 20s are naturally vibrant and gorgeous. At this time it is most important for young women to develop a healthy skin regimen, beginning with daily sunscreen and doctor recommended, physician strength home products. In our teens and 20s, a healthy skin routine includes prevention of acne and protection from harmful UV rays. Read More >>

30s

Our 30s mark that unique decade that should be broken down into two parts: early and late thirties. In our early thirties, we begin to notice one specific facial issue emerging. For each of us it may be a different problem; looking tired, signs of puffy eyes, or the beginning of fine lines and wrinkles. Other issues may include frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, or the beginning stages of nasolabial folds. In our late thirties, loosening or sagging skin may be more noticeable and the one condition from our early thirties may become more prominent. Thus, this is the time that many women choose to get serious about preventative action. Read More >>

40s

Forty may be the new thirty when it comes to lifestyle choices, but when it comes to our faces, now is when global facial issues begin to manifest themselves. Genetics, time, and environmental factors can take their toll on our skin. Thus, to keep us looking fabulous through our forties and beyond, it becomes necessary to address multiple issues, rather than one main issue in isolation as we did in our thirties. Preserving a youthful appearance requires a comprehensive analysis of existing concerns and emerging issues. Read More >>

Over 50

Women don’t stop feeling beautiful and energetic when they hit 50, so why should their faces show signs of age? In order to retain a youthful look at this age, it is absolutely necessary to address global facial issues. The natural aging process results in deep tissue volume loss and surface issues as well, such as wrinkles and brown or red spots, no matter how well we have taken care of our skin. Over time, gravity contributes to the movement of fat deposits in the face, generally downward. The result can be sagging jowls or neck, tired looking skin and an increase in lines and wrinkles. Hormone changes can contribute to the appearance of age spots and skin discoloration. Furthermore, even for women who have maintained the most comprehensive sun care routines, the cumulative effect of sun damage over time becomes difficult to ignore. Read More >>

Men

Historically, men have felt less pressure to hide their age than women. In fact, some signs of aging that women dread are thought to be attractive, or even sexy on men. Just think of the expression “silver fox.” Yet there are some universal signs of aging, such as volume loss and descent, age spots and wrinkles, which are equally undesirable for men as they are for women. Now, men in their 40s and 50s are starting to feel the social and work pressures associated with looking youthful and they are searching for treatment options to ward off the signs of aging.
