There are many excellent treatments for women and men in their 60s and older. Although results are best in individuals who have been maintaining their skin health and beauty over the decades, even cosmetic procedure late comers can achieve satisfaction. Combination treatments– combining multiple modalities give the best results in this age group, especially in cosmetic procedure virgins.
Skin health and beauty go hand in hand. Photorejuvenation ( IPL) reduces signs of sun damage, age spots and unsightly veins, yields more even skin coloration, smoother skin texture and imparts a healthy glow.
In Dr Sabetta’s experienced hands using advanced protocols and the newest most up to date versions of Radiofrequency Microneedling (RFN), wonders can be achieved. RFN smooths and improves wrinkles, loose crepey skin, tightens, lifts and volumizes. It is effective on the face and neck but also on the arms, knees and abdomen.
For more aggressive facial wrinkling fractionated ablative laser is performed in combination with RFN. IPL can be added for a triple combination treatment in those with pigmentation as well.
Botox, injectable Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler like long lasting Voluma, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Defyne and absorbable ThreadLift are also helpful in this as well as younger age groups. Botox is helpful to reduce frowning between the eyebrows and on the forehead and crows feet. Fillers are important for those with facial wasting, loss of facial fat , sunken cheeks. ThreadLift is a minimally invasive treatment that physically lifts skin about a half inch instantly and without the risks of extensive facelift surgery.
Those in their 60s often comment that they are bothered by the bony look of their hands, so called “granny hands.” This issue is easily and immediately remedied by injectable filler.
