In your 60’s you may be reveling in the joys of retirement. But just because you are retired, doesn’t mean you want to look “retired.” In your 60s and 70s, all the signs of aging you see in your 50s continue to become more apparent. Sagging is no longer restricted to one or two areas. It’s everywhere! Loss of volume in the mid-face is more apparent. Skin cells have less moisture and your skin is noticeably drier, thinner and more lax.

Here are some of the most age appropriate and effective treatments available today:

Eyelid Surgery:
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a fantastic option to correct tired, hooded eyes. During upper eyelid surgery an incision is placed in the natural fold of the upper lid. A portion of the excess eyelid skin is removed and the eyelid is shaped to give a natural lift, effectively removing those stubborn bags under your eyes.

Strategic Makeup:
As you age, your skin becomes more sensitive to additives in makeup. In addition, the lack of SPF in makeup products can leave your skin vulnerable to the sun. Jane Iredale Make Up has no additives, and provides natural looking coverage with skin-loving ingredients, including an SPF value of 15 or greater in most products.

Wrinkle Relaxation:
Injecting Botox can help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet, giving the skin a softer appearance. Botox can help to reduce the appearance of tired eyes and wrinkles by smoothing and relaxing the skin around them.

DermalFillers can be used to enhance facial contours, smooth out wrinkles, and lift the skin, to create a brighter, more youthful appearance.

Ultherapy is a facial skin tightening and lifting procedure. It uses safe and effective ultrasound technology to lift the deep structural support layers of the skin and tighten the underlying muscle facia. It is particularly effective in treating double chins, jowls, and turkey neck to give you the jawline contour you desire.

Aging Hand Treatments:
Often we find many of our patients looking younger than their chronological age through the face and eye area—only to leave their tired, old looking hands as a dead give away to their true age. Sante Medical has a number of treatments that can address signs of aging in the hands.

Fractional lasers can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and provide significant tightening and wrinkle reduction for skin on the back of the hand. The injection of Dermal Fillers can provide substance and bulk to the aged, bony appearance that can occur on the back of the hands, smoothing the overlying skin and reducing the appearance of protruding hand veins. ICON IPL or Forever Young BBL photo rejuvenation can remove brown and age spots. Our Varilite KTP or Excel V vascular lasers can address and remove broken capillaries.

Varicose Veins:
Are you suffering from tired, heavy legs and varicose veins? Consider one of our vein treatments such as Sclerotherapy or EVLT, which treat venous insufficiency and provide cosmetic improvement.

Laser Resurfacing Treatments:
Laser Resurfacing is an effective means of treating sun damage/brown spots, skin laxity, textural changes, enlarged pores, fine lines and deep wrinkles all in one treatment. Treatments are effective for the face, the neck as well as hands and chest area. Sante Medical employs several state-of-the-art laser resurfacing technologies under one roof.

Considered the gold standard of cosmetic laser procedures, our SmartXide DOT CO2 laser can dramatically restore your skin’s youthful appearance with limited downtime and discomfort. This technology uses the proven results of a traditional CO2 laser. Delivered in one safe and effective procedure, it creates thousands of microscopic laser columns in your skin, inducing immediate skin tightening and new collagen growth. The ablative nature of the procedure creates skin that appears new, fresh, smooth and more youthful looking.

For patients seeking an effective procedure with less downtime, our Halo Pro Laser can provide the near ablative like results achieved by CO2 lasers with a speedier recovery period.

Regardless of which laser resurfacing treatment is best suited for you - colour, texture and quality of skin will be visibly improved soon after treatment, and a gradual improvement in skin firmness and lift will be noticed as collagen is regenerated.
