Brightening Their Golden Years: The 60+ Crowd Turns to Cosmetic Dermatology

Dec 8 2011

An ever-growing trend in the world of cosmetic treatment is an increased interest from those of greater years.  Treatments that were once reserved for those of middle age are now being utilized by individuals in their seventies, eighties and even nineties.  With this new interest comes new concerns for ensuring patient safety.  Doctors are working with their older patients to set realistic treatment goals and to help bring them closer to their desired appearance.  The fact of the matter is, people today are living longer. It stands to reason that folks want to maintain a fresh and youthful appearance for as long as possible.  In the world of cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic surgery, there are a myriad of treatment options available.

Cosmetic Dermatology as the Answer

The world of cosmetic dermatology is ever-changing, and treatment options are endless.  Together, we can work to set your treatment goals and find the right solution for you.

Some of the treatment options we offer:

  • Laser treatments: Laser skin treatments are a popular and effective means of combating several skin conditions.  There are laser treatments available that address issues of wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, unwanted hair and much more.  Laser treatment is a time-tested means of correcting a multitude of issues you may face in your advancing years.
  • Blepharoplasty: For those with puffy or tired-looking eyes, blepharoplasty may be the answer.  For this procedure, we remove excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.  Blepharoplasty is an out-patient procedure performed under a local anesthesia.
  • Botox and fillers: Injectables such as Botox, Restylane and Juvederm work to prevent or fill in creases in the skin.  These treatments usually take less than an hour and often, effects can be seen that day.
  • Chemical peels: Chemical peels work by removing the damaged outer layer of the skin.  These treatments are commonly used to remove blemishes, remove scarring and give the face a smoother texture.
