We are seeing a steady and increasing number of younger patients, between the ages of 20-35, consulting our clinic.
It seems quite clear that the younger generation of patients are coming in to discuss different treatment options that are available to them because they want to be proactive and prevent and delay the early signs of aging in order to stay ahead of the curve.
It is less about « getting injected » and more about keeping the skin healthy and radiant.
Our skin is a good indicator of health and beauty. Even the most striking facial features can be set off by skin that is flawed or not looking its best.
Good skin quality can be defined as a well hydrated skin with minimal pore size, an even texture, balanced skin tone, a firm, resilient structure and inflammation free.
Often times, over the counter skin care products only moisturize the skin from the surface and do not accomplish much to enhance collagen and elastin production, hydration from within and cell renewal.
Hyaluronic acid, laser Genesis, IPL, chemical peels and medical facials and mesotherapy are a few of the procedures we perform to improve skin quality. Each patient is unique and consultations are tailored to individual needs.
There is a growing demand for medical aesthetic treatments mostly driven by the desire to incorporate these procedures in a hollistic notion of wellness rather than vanity or beauty.
As the old proverb goes : « An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. »
We know that the outward manifestations of the aging process begins in our late twenties. It is therefore feasible to start counseling and treatment of younger patients based on individual needs and concerns Often these consultations are more about sun protection, pigmentation problems, acne treatments and acne scar management and understanding how to maintain skin health.
Our facial appearance is one of the key factors in how we preceive beauty, attractiveness and it si also a visible marker of one’s age.
In a study that was published in Journal of Women and Aging in 2020, the authors surveyed patients in different age groups. Women between 25-30 mostly wanted to prevent aging at an early stage.
A proper, induvidualized consultation and discussion is the corner stone of a healthy undertaking of anti-aging procedures to make sure that the patients get a hollistic and global understanding based on science and the doctor’s clinical experience. From there, once trust and expertise are established, it becomes an easy task to plan and to deliver treatments best suited for each person.
