10 Tips to Prevent Signs of Aging in Your 30’s

Taking care of your skin now is critical to having healthy and youthful looking skin in the future. If you are in your 20’s or even your 30’s, it’s time to start a labor (or regimen) of love with your skin. To prevent signs of aging takes work unless you’re one of the rare women with extraordinary family genetics! Not only will you see immediate benefits, you’ll see that your hard work pays off in your 40’s and 50’s.

  1. Use a daily sunscreen that contains a broad spectrum SPF of at least 30, preferably higher. We have many to choose from that helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to acne, rosacea and discoloration. These mineral-based face sunscreens are lightweight and silky. Elta MD, iS Clinical, GlowMD to mention a few.
  2. Avoid the sun! As stated in tip number one, you should always use products that contain protection against the sun, but even more must be remembered. Even just a few minutes of time in the sun can cause changes to the skin after so many years. Too much sun can cause wrinkles, freckles, age spots and even blotchy skin. Try to avoid the sun from the hours of 10:00 am- 4:00 pm.
  3. Don’t smoke! There are many reasons not to smoke but in reference to your skin, cigarette smoking can cause wrinkles to appear sooner than in non-smokers. After many years of smoking, some people show an almost yellow hue to their skin. Even if you’ve smoked for years, stopping smoking can still benefit the body and skin.
  4. Be sure and drink lots of water which help the kidneys do their job and expel toxins from the body. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day hydrates skin, and it helps cells to carry essential nutrients where they are needed.
  5. Use wrinkle creams or moisturizer for the eye area where skin is more sensitive and thinner. One of our favorites by far is iS Clinical Youth Eye which contains powerful peptides, key growth factors, & potent antioxidants. A must have!
  6. Exercising on a regular basis helps skin to look healthier and more radiant. Exercise helps increase blood circulation which is good for your skin.
  7. Add antioxidants to your diet. Free radicals can cause damage to your skin, but antioxidants protect you from the damage of the free radicals.  Foods that are high in antioxidants include fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and cereal. Green tea and some juices (such as cranberry) are loaded with antioxidants.
  8. Consider Injections. If you prefer a quick fix and have the budget to do so, consider getting Botox injections or fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to fill in wrinkles. Instant gratification!
  9. Depending on your level of damage, you may even want to consider an IPL – Intense Pulse Light treatment to rid dark spots.  Chemical peels such as the Jessner peel do wonders for skin tone and the reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  10. Finally, take care of your skin DAILY. It’s hard to be consistent all the time, but regular cleansing, moisturizing and the other steps mentioned above pay off. While you’re young start your regimen and it will pay off when you get to your 40’s, 50’s and even your 60’s.

Luckily, with skin rejuvenation treatments, these can all be diminished or treated. Learn how lasers can benefit you!

Who is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Men and women both benefit from laser hair removal. Women often appreciate the removal of hair at the underarms, legs, bikini line, and face. Men often opt for treatments on the back, shoulders, and chest.

Intense Pulse Light Rejuvenation

Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photo facial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL photo rejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, photo facial treatments may be the dermatological approach you’ve been looking for.

Ideal IPL Photofacial Candidates

People with white, untanned skin that is still somewhat elastic are the best candidates for an IPLphotofacial. It is also important for patients to have a realistic understanding about what the procedure can do. When performed on the right person, it effectively improves skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reducing pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. If you have rosacea, a condition that causes blotchy redness in the face, you may also benefit from an IPLphotofacial. For more serious issues – heavy facial lines and severe acne scars, for example – patients may wish to consider more aggressive treatment, such as InMode Fractora or Microneedling.

InMode Fractora RF

Fractora Radio Frequency combines laser resurfacing, collagen stimulation, and skin tightening technologies in one customizable treatment.

This new ablative treatment uses fractional energy to heat the deep layers of skin, revitalizing collagen production, improving skin complexion and texture for a more youthful, tightened and lifted appearance. Perfect for skin with acne scarring, photo damage, or those in need of tightening. You will see results in just three sessions!

Fractora skin resurfacing is one of the non-surgical skin rejuvenation methods available at GlowMD laser MedSpa.  We utilize anti aging technology from InMode Aesthetic Solutions. They are the leading name and gold standard for in-demand aesthetic procedures and offer the latest in light, laser, and radio frequency technology. With Fractora skin resurfacing you can expect:

  • Pleasing results without surgery

VBeam Laser

Vbeam® Laser Treatment for Treating Redness, Veins, Birthmarks, Scars

The VBeam laser corrects vascular conditions by targeting redness, causing the blood vessels to absorb the light and the redness to absorb into the body. Facial veins, scars, birthmarks, rosacea, and certain red bumps can all be treated with Vbeam® laser treatments with excellent results and no damage to the surrounding skin.

How Does The VBeam Work?

We will treat the selected area with a brief, but intense, gentle burst of light that will destroy the blood vessels being treated but leave the rest of the face alone. Red veins respond to this treatment better than the blue arteries, and the effects of the Vbeam® laser treatment are often immediately noticeable. It feels like and little more than a brief sting is all most patients experience. Cool packs are provided if desired.
