Anatomy 101

During your late 30s and 40s, the skin will become drier and continues to lose its tone and radiance due to decreased collagen production, hyaluronic acid production, and skin cell turnover. Fine lines are common and deeper wrinkles develop around muscles of constant facial expression (e.g. frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and laugh lines along the sides of the eyes). The cheeks and mid-face begin to descend and this creates creases along the sides of the nose to the angles of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Creases may also extend down from the angles of the mouth to the jawline (marionette lines). Additional skin changes include small reddish spots due to broken blood vessels or brownish patches (i.e. sun spots, melasma). Variability in sun-exposure and hormone levels (i.e. pregnancy, breastfeeding) can impact the severity of facial pigmentation. Overall, the face starts to visibly look more tired. Areas around the cheeks, temples, in front of the ears, and around the mouth and chin start to lose their youthful projection. Eventually, the jawline and neck also begin to sag due to a combination of deflation (lost fat volume) and decreased skin tone (lost collagen and dermal support). Some might also notice drooping of the tip of the nose, downward migration of the upper lip, or loss of lip volume and shape.

Goal for the 35 - 50 Age Group

To restore your natural radiance by focusing on a customized treatment plan consisting of medical-grade skin care, skin resurfacing with chemical peels or laser therapy, injectables, or minimally-invasive surgery as needed.

During your 30s and 40s, you may experience a variety of age-related changes around your eyes and face that may be difficult to fully understand at a detailed level. You might just feel that you “look tired” even when you’re not feeling that way.  

When you visit with us at Eye Face Institute, our surgeons will help you understand the nuanced facial aging changes you’re experiencing and devise a customized treatment plan that matches your aesthetic philosophy and values. For non-invasive management options, consider the Radiant Eyes Radiant Face™ Protocol and the MD Results™ Skin Care System. 

Treatment Options

Healthy Lifestyle

No smoking, nutritious diet, drink enough water, exercise, adequate sleep.   

Sun Protection

Strategies include sun avoidance, wrap-around sunglasses, wide-brimmed hat, and sunscreen (UVA & UVB blocker, which should be used all year-round).  

Creams & Lotions

Moisturization is essential. A daily regimen consisting of a quality moisturizer, exfoliating cleanser, serums, antioxidant creams, and retinoids is very effective. [learn more about MD Results™] Medical-grade chemical peels are also very effective in reducing fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and pigmented areas across the face. 

Skin-Strengthening Treatments

Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive treatment option in suitable candidates to improve skin cell turnover, which decreases fine lines and pigmented spots while boosting collagen production. Radiofrequency (RF) tightening also reduces fine lines and improves skin tone by heating tissue below the skin to improve collagen production. 

Injectables

For the dynamic lines caused by muscles of facial expression (especially around the eyes and forehead), botulinum toxin (Botox, XeominDysport) is a great option to reduce their severity and improve skin texture. Dermal fillers (e.g. RestylaneJuvedermSculptra, etc.) are used to treat deeper wrinkles or deflation caused by lost collagen and fat. They are also effective in reshaping the lips, nose, jawline, and chin. Although fillers are an excellent option in suitable candidates, we strongly believe the injector must be diligent not to over-fill and draw attention to treated areas. Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) can be helpful in suitable candidates for reducing acne and other types of facial scarring. 

Laser Therapy

There are ablative and non-ablative lasers which can help improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, soften deep wrinkles, reduce pigmentation, treat acne/rosacea, or serve as prevention therapy.   

Surgery

Droopy upper eyelids (ptosis), excessive eyelid skin (hooding) or eyelid bags, a heaviness of the forehead or cheeks, neck fullness etc. can be managed with a customized surgical plan using minimally-invasive techniques such as blepharoplasty, mini-facelift, or thread-lift.
