4 Skin Rejuvenation Treatments to Consider in Your 40s

4 Skin Rejuvenation Treatments to Consider in Your 40s

Your 30s are transitional for your skin, experts say. By the time you reach 40, you notice some serious alterations. As your skin loses volume and elasticity, you get wrinkles and sagging areas. At the same time, sun exposure can start to catch up with you, leaving you with dark spots.

Ultimately, the at-home skincare routine you relied on in your 20s and 30s might not be enough anymore. But we can help. 

Come see the skin rejuvenation experts at our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City and in Madison, Connecticut. Norman J. Pastorek, MD, and Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, can create a tailored rejuvenation plan designed to address whatever changes you’re noticing in your 40s and beyond. 

Here are some of the game-changing treatments your plan might include:

#1: Platelet-rich fibrin

At our offices, we offer this skin rejuvenating treatment that gets powered by your body’s own regenerative abilities.

Treatment with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) starts when we take a very small sample of your blood. Using a centrifuge, we separate out the platelets and fibrin, components your body uses to heal and generate new cells. Injecting this PRF with a micro-fine needle allows us to treat:

In other words, with PRF, you can give your skin resources to fight aging and look its best. 

#2: Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL uses light energy to target and break up problems in your skin, including:

With a series of treatments, we can help you get rid of unwanted changes while giving your skin an overall glow. At our offices, we use the leading-edge Clareon system for our IPL treatments.

#3: Fractional laser treatment

A fractional laser allows us to target a fraction (hence the name) of your skin, delivering resurfacing that helps to fight aging. 

Here, we offer two fractional laser treatments: Clear + Brilliant® and the Phoenix CO2 laser. Whether you’re trying to address changing skin tone and texture, shrink large pores, or fight wrinkles, these options deliver.

#4: Microneedling

By making tiny pinpricks in the surface of your skin, we can kickstart its healing and rejuvenation processes. Microneedling gives you a way to address:

We can also perform microneedling on your face before other treatments — like PRF — to increase the effectiveness and deliver even greater skin rejuvenation.

To find out which treatments best align with your skin goals, call either of our offices or book your appointment online today.
