Skincare in Your 60s: The Best Products for the Golden Years

Women in their 60s face a variety of skin challenges. According to the US National Library of Medicine, the right vitamins, diet, and sun protection play a big role in skin health and appearance. However, normal hormonal and physiological changes subdue sweat and oil gland functionality, slow the cell regeneration cycle, and thin the epidermis, creating wrinkles, a dull complexion, and a loss of elasticity. As we age, those changes—most commonly dryness and noticeable wrinkles—become pronounced.

For visible results without the risk or recovery time of surgical intervention, the extensive line of cutting-edge Lancer products and non-invasive treatments will make all the difference. “The idea that people reach this age, throw in the towel, and get a facelift—that’s passé,” states Dr. Lancer in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. He firmly believes that dramatic results—even an appearance of a decade or two younger—is fully possible without surgery, thanks to advancements in modern dermatology and the incredible products he has at his disposal. “A 60-year-old cosmetic virgin can look like she is in her late 40s without surgery; it’s just a more gradual process.”

Dr. Lancer recognizes that women in their 60s often particularly worry about specific problem areas—namely, the eyes, neck, and chest. As part of his advanced treatments, Dr. Lancer offers products and procedures to target the areas of skin that age first and cause his clients the most concern.

The delicate eye area consists of a very thin skin layer and, as such, is one of the first locations to dry and wrinkle. One of the most popular products,  Eye Contour Lifting Cream, features MDCP complex and Diamond powder to efficiently reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness.

To remedy chronically dry skin, Intensive Night Treatment with Hylaplex®—a cross-linked form of hyaluronic acid with peptides and phytocompounds, and the essential fatty acids and antioxidants from marula oil—works to plump skin’s appearance and provide long-lasting moisture, achieving a noticeable reduction of lines and wrinkles.

And for truly decadent improvement, the premium Lift Serum Intense combines Cassava Root Extract, an exclusive stem cell complex derived from sea plant and grape stem cells, and pure 24K gold (which maintains the skin’s natural electromagnetic field) to deliver firming and lifting effects for dramatically smoother and younger-looking skin.

Dr. Lancer also specializes in radio frequency treatments, which work to simultaneously brighten and firm the skin.  He finds that this is a particularly successful method to remedy loose or sagging skin, and typically recommends three monthly applications of Venus Viva, or the EndyMed 3 Deep for a deeper delivery of radio frequency energy.
