  • Most 30 year olds will start seeing subtle to mild changes in aging such as lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet), in addition to shadows under the eyes (tear troughs) and around the mouth (nasolabial folds).
  • Some individuals are genetically predisposed to start these changes even earlier. Treating the lines and shadows now will minimize deepening of these lines and shadows later.

All 30 year old patients

  • Continue medical sunscreen daily with a good UVA block and spf of 30 (Visage MD sunguard). Medical sunscreens with UVA protection, not SPF, are the key to minimizing aging.
  • Add daily topical antioxidant (Visage MD CE Brightening serum) to help sunscreen and retinoid work more effectively.
  • Consider a low dose tretinoin (Exfolibright C) to nightly regimen to begin treating sun damage, collagen loss, brown spots, fine lines, poor texture, and large pores.
  • Add medical grade facials (Hydrafacial MD) every 6-8 weeks in addition to daily skin care regimen to boost home skin care.

Optional or as needed:

  • Consider treating sun damage (brown spots, poor texture, if present) early to minimize aging changes to skin using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, topical Exfolibright C, or pigment peels (Visage MD peels).
  • Consider age-appropriate lip augmentation to maintain lip shape and to prevent drooping of corners of mouth.
  • Ultherapy is a great preventative treatment for the 30 year old who wants to maintain or improve current brow position, jawline, or neckline and is highly recommended at this stage (or earlier). Ultherapy is also great for individuals who want to lift loose skin that they are just beginning to see. Many individuals have both loss of volume and skin laxity so it’s important to determine if volume is needed in addition to Ultherapy to avoid an underwhelming Ultherapy result.
  • This is a good time for individuals to consider Dysport or Botox for any lines in the upper face such as between brows or in forehead that are present at rest (without any movement) to prevent deepening.
  • Consider filler (Restylane Lyft) to midface to support cheek tissue and minimize nasolabial folds and lower lid hollowing (tear troughs). Fillers can also help plump a thin lip, sharpen your jawline, or add cheek contour. Fat transfer and implants are also options for volume.
  • Begin medical microneedling or Radiofrequency microneedling (Infini Genius) to treat acne scarring.
  • Chin fat begins to build during this decade. Consider Coolsculpting or Kybella or neck liposuction to maintain neckline.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
