Most of us would love to age as beautifully and gracefully as possible. Depending on your age or the stage of life you’re in, your skin will have varying textures and tones. Dr. Paik, Evansville’s only double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, and Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, our aesthetic nurse practitioner, have the expertise and experience to achieve the most natural results for all patients, no matter their age!

Desires for your skin and the results you can expect vary from person to person, so it’s important to meet with our facial plastic surgeon or aesthetic nurse practitioner to determine the right treatment plan for you. But to help you learn a little more, here are some general recommendations from Dr. Paik!

Skin Treatments for Our 20s: A Foundation for Youthful Skin

When in your 20s, your skin is at its prime! It’s the perfect time to begin preventative measures and develop a robust and nourishing skincare routine. This typically involves cleansing, moisturizing, and incorporating effective SPF protection. However, there are a few minimally invasive treatments, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser skin treatments, that will provide beautiful results and enhance your youthful glow.

Skin Treatments for Our 30s: Look for Early Signs of Aging

As we move into our 30s, natural collagen production begins to decrease, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. During this time of our lives, our facial plastic surgeon recommends introducing injectables, like Botox, dermal fillers, or laser skin treatments, to reduce early signs of aging. These non-invasive and non-surgical procedures will give you natural and beautiful results. With proper skin care and incorporating Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid in tandem with these treatments, your skin will continue looking youthful, voluminous, and fresh.

Skin Treatments for Our 40s: Embracing Facial Rejuvenation

During this period of your life, you may begin to notice pronounced changes in your skin and additional signs of aging. A combination of Botox, fillers, microneedling, and laser treatments can provide a natural but youthful look. We know your skin is undeniably beautiful no matter your age, but you may be ready to explore more advanced facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift, neck refinement, or biostimulators to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin, and reduce loss of volume.

50s and Beyond: Treatments for Longevity

Once you reach the age of fifty, you may feel that you’re ready to permanently address drooping skin and other age-related changes. Dr. Paik is the area’s only double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, specializing in surgical procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts, eyelid surgery, brow and forehead lifts, and more. While these surgical procedures can provide results beyond what non-surgical treatments offer, interventions such as chemical peels and laser treatments continue to be beneficial too.

No matter your age, your skin is a testament to your youthful radiance and the wisdom of age. From prevention and maintenance to complete rejuvenation, we have a treatment plan that will enhance your natural beauty at every stage of life.
