Skincare for the Modern Millennial
People often think of skincare as something reserved for when you’re older, but in actuality, your skin health is a lifelong investment that should start at an early age. No matter your age, you should always take steps to protect your skin in order to help it look and feel its best for years to come. The latest generation to embrace skin health has been Millennials — especially here at Seiler Skin. This age group, which largely consists of those between 25 and 40, is exploring skincare like never before and trying to find the medical-grade products and treatments that’ll give them the results they want. While each person’s concerns are unique, there are some go-to things to consider within your Millennial skincare plan, so we thought to share what some of those are and how they’re helping this generation make skin health a number one priority!
There’s definitely a range in terms of the different skin concerns Millennials may have. Those on the younger end of the spectrum are going to search for treatments and medical-grade products that are more preventative in nature. These will help maintain collagen and elastin development as we age and fight off fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. Those on the older end of the Millennial generation are still going to rely on preventative measures, but also may consider some treatments designed to address early signs of aging or skin damage. People start to see sun damage or skin laxity as they get into their late 30s and early 40s.
As always, we consult with each patient one-on-one to address their concerns and create a custom skincare plan, but here are some of the top things to help Millennials beginning their skin health journey:
- Botox – this injectable is probably the most popular treatment among Millennials. Botox is great for preventing fine lines and wrinkles by reducing the intensity of muscle contractions in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes and even the neck. Dr. Seiler applies a conservative yet effective approach to Botox that both delivers results and doesn’t break the bank. Patients also love the “lip flip” – a simple treatment that uses just a couple of units of Botox above the upper lip to improve appearance and show more of your natural lip.
- Lip Filler – as natural collagen development slows down, your lips are one of the first things to potentially lose fullness. Lip filler is great not only for restoring volume lost to aging, but also to help those with naturally smaller lips achieve a more symmetrical, fuller look. You can learn more about filler (and Botox) for the lips here.
- HydraFacials – our skin can always use some tender loving care, and the HydraFacial is perfect for just that!
