You may think that by the time you hit your 60s, it’s too late to care for your skin or it will be impossible to restore that youthful glow you had in your 30s. You’ve done decades of preventative measures, but there’s only so much you can do after you hit the big 6-0 – right? Wrong.

In 2022, there are an abundance of anti-aging treatments available to you that can restore lost volume, create contour, and add fullness in all the right places. Options such as fillers, fat transfers, and chemical peels aren’t just for the TikTok crowd. All of these treatments can be used to help you achieve the look you desire. If you don’t know where to start, we’ve compiled a list of what we’ve found to be the top 5 most effective treatments for kicking that dull skin to the curb in your 60s.

1. Laser Resurfacing

Lasers have their place at any age, but laser resurfacing that uses erbium laser technology such as the MicroLaserPeel is a game changer. Resurfacing is exactly what it sounds like — you’re removing the outer layer of the skin, replacing the dead skin cells with new, healthy cells to improve the texture and clarity of the skin. 

Laser Resurfacing requires minimal downtime and will even out skin tone, texture, and color, and restore a healthy-looking, youthful glow to the skin. And treatments such as the MicroLaserPeel can also strip away light and mild wrinkles quickly with automated scanning and large coverage area. 

Your skin has likely changed significantly over the last six decades, and your skincare should be able to adapt to your needs. With laser resurfacing, you’ll see the results you want in as little as 3-5 days without having to go under the knife.  

There are even more dramatic resurfacing options that can shave 10 years of aging off by treating the deeper layers of skin. While these treatments create dramatic results, they also require more recovery and downtime, but still avoid needing a surgical procedure. 

2. Chemical Peels

You’ve likely heard of chemical peels, but have you heard of Tricholoroacetic acid, or TCA peels? TCA peels can be customized to each person and the peel’s concentration can be increased to address fine lines, age spots, or precancerous lesions. Peels can also be used as an effective spot treatment if you have a particular area you want to target, such as crows feet or forehead lines. 

An added benefit is little to no downtime. Depending on the peel’s concentration, patients may experience some peeling and discomfort; however, most patients are back to normal activities within 24 hours. 

3. HA Fillers

Hyaluronic Fillers, known as HA or dermal fillers are temporary injectables that can add much needed volume to the face, giving your skin a tighter, lifted, and a more youthful look. While HA fillers have seen a surge of popularity over the last 5-10 years, that doesn’t mean that these are only reserved for the young trendsetters. Men and women over the age of 60 who suffer from sunken in or sagging skin on the face, fine lines, wrinkles, or thin lips can still benefit from the effects of fillers and can see results immediately.

4. Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport or Jeuveau are used to treat wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. A tiny amount of the neuromodulator is injected directly into the underlying muscle, causing it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the overlying skin. 

As we grow older, the muscles in our face tighten but the skin around those muscles may sag or “hollow” out. Neuromodulators’ relaxing effects relaxes the facial muscles and also lifts up the sagging skin surrounding it. Neuromodulators can also be used to slim the jawline, which can widen and spread as we age. 

 

5. PRP injections

While often associated with microneedling or used to regrow hair, PRP injections can also be a very effective skin corrector when injected directly into the face.

 Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) comes from your own blood. The blood is drawn and the plasma is separated and enriched with growth factors that stimulate the healing process and repair skin damage. 

PRP can tighten, firm, and smooth the skin on the face and chin. It can also correct dark circles under eyes and even tighten sagging or loose skin under the chin typically referred to as the jowls, which is a common concern for people over 60.
