Historically, the 1960’s was a decade when baby boomers embraced and promoted peace and love. That was a long time ago, in a different century. While times are very different now, there’s no disputing that the baby boomers are the ones responsible for taking care of themselves better than previous generations. They are the trailblazers, the ones who have given rise to the saying that “60 is the new 40.” This is the group that is inherently curious, active, explorative and not afraid to try something new. That is true of surgical as well as non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
The Next Step Toward Prolonging Youthfulness
Many baby boomers are now entering the decade of their 60s. Many of them look terrific through taking care of themselves and experimenting with the plethora of procedures that have been made available.
If you are among this group, congratulations! You’ve done your best and you’ve done a great job. You’ve protected your skin from sun damage, you’ve practiced a skincare regimen that has kept your skin moist, firm and as youthful as any product can. Now that you are in your 60’s and looking toward the joys that come with retirement, you may be ready to take a more permanent approach to refreshing and renewing your appearance.
Some Of The Issues People In Their 60s Face
While we all do our best to protect our skin and keep a youthful appearance, there are some conditions we simply cannot correct superficially. And, some people are not naturally blessed with perfect facial symmetry and gorgeous skin. Even if you are so blessed, gravity eventually shows up on your face. Below are some of the issues those in their 60’s explore more seriously than at an earlier age.
- Increasing skin laxity and facial ptosis (sagging, looseness)
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face and neck (“crow’s feet,” “marionette lines,” “bunny lines,” “laugh lines,” “eyebrow furrows”)
- Surgery-, injury-, or acne-related scarring
- Enlarged pores/blackheads
- Dry, sun-damaged skin
- Bags, puffiness, and dark circles under the eyes
- Broken capillaries/redness/rosacea
- Uneven, blotchy, and/or dull skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening, melasma, sun spots, age spots)
- Hypopigmentation (skin lightening)
- Entropian, Ectropian, Eyelid Retraction
Use Hard Earned Wisdom When Looking To Achieve A Younger Appearance
It is amazing the difference an endoscopic brow lift can make in facial appearance. This is a procedure than many 60-something men and women explore to subtly give a refreshed and youthful appearance. There are many ways to make this decade delightful as you step away from a much-loved career and into a more relaxed lifestyle. And it’s even more exciting when you step into that time of life looking and feeling better than ever.
Whether you are exploring permanent surgical procedures, a combination of procedures including non-surgical treatments, always make the first step the most thorough. That is selecting an experienced surgeon. Although any surgery carries with it an inherent risk of complications, when performed with advanced techniques by a renowned facial surgery expert, facial surgery can be a safe and very rewarding experience.
