What personal goals have you set for 2019? If taking care of your skin’s health and beauty isn’t one of your new year’s resolutions, it might be time to rethink your priorities.
Every year, our bodies age. And that process is usually reflected on our skin’s surface, which may alter our once youthful appearance. You may start to notice age spots on your hands or face, early signs of crows feet, or fine lines around your lips. When this happens, it’s easy to think it’s all part of getting older, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it.
No matter your age or gender, if you’re living with a skin condition that’s affecting your self-confidence, make 2019 the year you regain your youthful, radiant glow!
Top Three Common Skin Concerns
You may think your acne days are far behind you, but truthfully, adults in their 30s, 40s, and beyond can still experience the occasional acne breakout. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 40% of adults experience acne flare ups in their later years, especially women. The reason for this is because our bodies will naturally undergo changes as we get older (e.g. pregnancy, menopause, etc.), which affects hormone levels and leads to clogged pores and unwanted acne breakouts.
Having adult acne can affect your self-confidence and lead to permanent acne scarring, if left untreated. Whether or not your profession is client-facing, the last thing you want in your 40s is the onset of acne or pimples interfering with your social life. Pinnacle Dermatology offers patients an assortment of advanced acne treatments to complement any skin type. From topical creams and chemical peels to acne facials and Kenalog injections, one of our experienced skincare specialists will design a personalized treatment plan for you to help you combat breakouts in the new year.
As you age, your body will begin to produce less collagen and elastin. These essential proteins are responsible for helping our skin retain sufficient moisture to keep it looking healthy and firm. When our skin loses collagen, it also loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Ever hear the term “droopy eyes?” If you’re noticing signs of sagging skin, it’s time to contact a local skincare expert.
Skin Laxity Treatment:
Pinnacle Dermatology offers noninvasive skin-tightening treatments to fight the effects of skin laxity on your face, neck, and eyelids. These non-ablative therapies target deeper skin layers without affecting your skin’s surface. By stimulating healthy collagen, the skin tightening process firms’ skin and even fills in wrinkles around the jawline, eye area, mouth, and cheeks. The best part is skin tightening actually revives healthy cell growth, allowing your skin to look and act the way it did in your youth. Treatments range from laser therapy, Thermage, and Sculptra®. Visit Pinnacle Dermatology to view before and after pictures of past patients who benefited from our skin laxity treatments.
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that affects adults, causing redness in your face that may develop into bumps or pustules. According to the National Rosacea Society, patients typically develop rosacea in their 30s, and individuals with fairer skin types are more prone to developing symptoms. Rosacea is often mistaken for other skin problems, such as skin allergies, eczema, and even acne.

Most people experience rosacea in cycles. When you meet with a Pinnacle Dermatology’ specialist, our team will evaluate your current rosacea condition to determine the best form of treatment to help you achieve the look you desire.
