Aging By Decade

Confidence at Any Age

Nature can be a powerful force in beauty, but only nurture and knowledge can support it. Marina’s approach is centered on both inner wellbeing and outer beauty. The aesthetic and health industries are always evolving. It is Marina’s passion to stay focused and up to date on the latest developments in health and beauty. She is committed to bringing the latest knowledge and well vetted products to her patients.

There are many factors that affect aging of our skin from environmental factors to genetic predispositions. 

Our facial appearance can be a good predictor of our lifespan and healthspan. 

Did you know that studies indicate that the perceived “age of the face” is a better predictor of how long you will live than objective health markers, actual age or cognitive function? Furthermore, wrinkling in areas unexposed to the sun, also predicts longevity.

From around the age of 25, the first signs of aging start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Loss of volume and loss of elasticity becomes noticeable over time. 

TEACHING PROPER SKIN CARE starts from a very young age. Marina focuses on educating her clients on the importance of maintaining health and wellness of the skin and on the treatments available to help delay the aging process.

In Your 20s

Lifestyle

Diet is important at any age. How we eat impacts how we feel and how we look. Limit food with simple sugars and process fats. Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole foods. Maintain good hydration and get plenty of sleep. Biophotonic scanner checks can reveal if you are eating enough fruits and vegetables for the proper antioxidant effect. IV infusions, supplements and vitamin injections can help to maintain healthy balance. Not sure how to get started? Schedule a lifestyle medicine consultation or biophotonic scanner check now.

Skin Care / Home Care

Use physical sunscreen every day and protect from damaging effects of sun that destroy collagen and elastin. Developing a skin regimen that is appropriate for your skin type is essential at this age. Consider using low dose retinoids. If you want to figure out what skin care regime is best to use at home, book a skin consultation with our knowledgeable staff.

Consider using low dose retinoids. If you want to figure out what skin care regime is best to use at home, book a skin consultation with our knowledgeable staff.

Peels

If your skin is acne prone, using medium depth peels like VI Peel Original and VI Peel Purify can reduce blemishes. In helping to reduce acne, you may find that skin regimens using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide help greatly.

Microneedling

Microneedling uses a small roller to cause tiny abrasions in the skin that stimulate new collagen and skin tissue growth resulting in smoother, firmer and more toned skin. For acne prone skin and acne scars, microneedling is often used to even skin tone and texture.

Fillers

Using fillers (Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®) in your 20s helps achieve fuller lips, correct dark eye circles, and can augment your chin. Using fillers can help you rebalance facial features and correct facial proportion.

Wrinkle Relaxers

Preventative wrinkle relaxers like micro doses of BOTOX®, Dysport®, XEOMIN® and Jeuveau® can prevent deep wrinkles formation from naturally dynamic muscles. They are safe and effective at this age.

Excessive Sweating

Treatment for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under arms and on hands and feet can boost confidence, improve comfort, and save money on clothing.

BOTOX®, Dysport® and XEOMIN® can also be used for TMJ (painful jaw clenching) and slimming of the face.

In Your 30s and 40s

Lifestyle

Continue a diet rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients to boost your immune system and promote health. Eat from the rainbow of vegetables and fruits to ensure that you are getting enough fiber, nutrients and minerals. If needed, good quality supplements promote health and delay chronic disease. A biophotonic scanner non-invasively measures carotenoid levels in living tissue, providing an immediate indication of a person’s overall antioxidant levels. This empowers individuals to make improvements to their diets and lifestyles, and helps them make an informed decision on which supplements are properly formulated to impact their antioxidant health. Make sure you get good quality sleep (7-8 hours a day) and at least 30 minutes a day of exercise and movement. When people are stressed and overwhelmed, they are less likely to engage in healthy behavior. Control stress by scheduling meaningful activities that bring you joy and pleasure. If you have a question, reach out to Marina and schedule a lifestyle consultation.

Lifestyle 

Since many people at this age are taking prescription medications and have a burden of chronic disease, it is important to consult a qualified health care specialist for the best skin care routine, aesthetic treatments and lifestyle changes that focus on delaying the burden of chronic disease while improving the quality of life. 

Diet 

Continue a diet rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients to boost your immune system and promote health. Eat from the rainbow of vegetables and fruits to ensure that you are getting enough fiber, nutrients and minerals. More than ever it is important to pay attention to the nutritional values of your food. In one study women who ate five servings of fruits and vegetables a day and exercised 180 minutes a week showed almost 50 percent reduction of breast cancer mortality. It is important to eat whole food, stay away from refined food and processed fats and sugars. 

Fiber 

Eating enough fiber (25g or more) showed benefits in improving blood cholesterol, stabilizing blood sugar, decreasing risk of colon cancer and many more. 

Nutrients 

Our absorption of nutrients is decreased as we age. People older than age 70 have decreased absorption of protein. Many need 25% more healthy protein than younger adults. Concentrate on quality healthy protein from grass-fed, grass-finished animal protein and plant protein from beans, lentils and other plants.

Sleep 

Good quality sleep is important for our cognitive and physical function. As we age, our production of sleep hormone melatonin diminishes causing us to have sleep problems. Avoid naps longer than 30 minutes, follow a good sleep routine, avoid alcohol, heavy late meals and fluids before bedtime.

Exercise

Adding physical activity to your daily routine has tremendous health benefits. 150 minutes a week of moderate activity with paying special attention to resistance exercise can add years to your life. 

Stress Reduction

Social isolation and loneliness can affect feelings of wellbeing and happiness. It can even affect your immune system. It is important to stay in touch with friends and family. Try exploring and joining activities that bring you joy and happiness.
