Skin Care Tips for Your 50s

Were you born in the 1960s? If so, you may have a rise in happiness ahead of you, according to this study by the American Association of Retired Persons.

One explanation for the trend: years of experience. That same experience, however, can take a toll on your skin. At Fort Wayne Dermatology Consultants, we know all about your skin and what happens to it over time. Maybe it’s dehydrated — or maybe you’ve noticed some of the wrinkles that have snuck up on you. Sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles can cause you to look much older than you are.

If you’re looking for new ways to care for your skin as you age, you’ve come to the right place. We can help you make your outside match your inner spirit with these skin care tips for people in their 50s.


We all know that hydration is important for our organs. But did you know that skin is an organ, too? Just like you put lotion on your hands, you should do something similar for the skin on your face. A facial is a simple solution. You can make your own — or you can come to the experts for a more effective, deeper penetrating treatment. Whether you need a facial to hydrate your skin or to rid your face of redness, at Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics (a service of Fort Wayne Dermatology Consultants) we’ll customize a facial specifically for you. Our facial is relaxing, too, as it hydrates your skin and leaves your face plumper and immediately feeling great.

Chemical Peels

This is comparable to a facial, but much more advanced. Instead of hydrating and nourishing your skin, a chemical peel rids your skin of old cells. The process unfolds over several days after treatment. As the dead layers melt away, your face is left with younger-looking, healthy new skin cells within a week.


Although it may sound scary, micro-needling is a perfectly safe way to reduce wrinkles. It’s more involved than a facial or a chemical peel, and it gets you better results. This procedure uses your body’s natural healing process to increase the amount of collagen your body produces. The increased collagen effectively treats:

  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Pore size

… and a variety of other skin issues.


During dermaplaning, we’ll take a surgical blade and gently scrape it across the top layer of your skin, similar to a close shave. The purpose of this is to rid your skin of dead cells and unwanted facial hair or peach fuzz. It’s a great way to improve the penetration of skin care products, like Jan Marini Skin Care Management System MD. Many people add this service before their facial or chemical peel to see better results.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers are injections used to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, along with adding fullness and lift to your cheeks and lips which naturally thin and sag as you age. Our trained Aestheticians and Aesthetic Nurse Specialists at Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics will help you decide which option is best for achieving a look that’s you … only better.

Botox is a short-term option that reduces the appearance of lines on your face. With a quick injection, your face will look younger, and lines from smiling, frowning, or raising your eyebrows will disappear. We offer this service at Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics. Still curious?
