Aging Face

As we age, noticeable changes take place in our face. These changes include wrinkles, dull skin and a drooping, tired appearance. Aging of the face is due mainly to environmental damage, loss of soft tissue support and elasticity.

Environmental damage comes from the sun, pollution and smoking. Sun damage appears as brown spots, wrinkles and a dull, uneven skin tone. We also begin to see lines and wrinkles due to repeated muscular movements, typically referred to as 'expression lines.' These typically appear on our forehead, beside our eyes and between our brows.

When we’re young, fat in our face plumps our forehead, temples, cheeks, and areas around the eyes and mouth. With age, fat loses volume and shifts downward. Features that were formerly round may deflate, and skin that was smooth and tight begins to sag. 

BaconMD offers many in-office treatments and procedures to capture a more youthful appearance. Most are nonsurgical and allow you to have a very natural, refreshed appearance. Generally it is best to combine a few of these treatments to adequately address signs of aging.

Skin Resurfacing

Lasers and radiofrequency treatments can be used to correct aging skin by removing brown spots, brightening your skin tone and reducing wrinkles. The gold standerd for laser resurfacing of skin is the fractional CO2 laser. We use the most sophisticated fractional CO2 laser to resurface the skin on your face, neck and décolleté to restore a more youthful appearance. We also offer the Venus Viva for skin resurfacing and tightening, which provides results similar to the fractional CO2 without the downtime.

Another effective way to stimulate oollagen and restore a more youthful appearance is through mico therapy using a skinpen. Our patients love the results. Learn more.

Radiofrequency Treatments (nonsurgical)

Noninvasive tissue tightening is an effective, popular treatment with patients. Radiofrequecy treatments deliver energy o the skin to begin new collagen formation. This in turn yields tissue tightening. We use the Venus Legacy radio frequency system for skin tightening. The treatments require no numbing of the skin and are relaxing and comfortable. Many patients say the treatment feels like a warm massage. Read more.


Protecting your face from the sun is the single best way of keeping it youthful. Much of the damage comes from the UVA part of the light spectrum, so you need use sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB. We are vulnerable to UVA year round. Wearing a hat during prolonged periods spent outdoors is a good idea. We carry a variety of high quality sunscreens for all skin types.

Medical Grade Skincare Products

A good at-home skincare regimen can visibly help you retain a more youthful appearance. We carry several medical grade skincare lines including NeoCutis and Jan Marini. These products are developed using medical grade ingredients at levels that will make a noticeable difference in your skin. We also carry Retin A and Refissa, which are prescription vitamin A creams. These are a strong defense against the signs of aging by inducing collagen production in the dermis and altering melanin, the pigment that causes brown spots.
