“Ultherapy is my workhorse for loose skin on the neck and jawline that is just starting to sag. It’s an ultrasound treatment that tightens existing collagen and promotes the growth of new collagen. My patients love that it has zero downtime. Some patients repeat the treatment every one to two years to keep their skin firm and tight.”

“I think fillers and Botox done with a light touch make the biggest difference for my patients. It keeps them looking fresh and young much longer without anyone realizing they’ve had any interventions. It can also prevent or push back a facelift for decades—especially when combined with a good sunscreen and skincare regimen. They’re not the “sexiest” treatments but they get the job done!”

“Eurothreads are a great treatment to rejuvenate skin. When placed superficially, the threads act as a support system for thin or sagging skin while promoting collagen production. The threads also can improve redness and brown spots. In addition, threads can be placed anywhere on the face, neck, or chest. In combination with deep threads, which lift without adding volume, it can make a huge difference for over 40 skin!”

—East Greenwich, RI dermatologist Caroline Chang, MD

“I think in your 40s, it’s about aging gracefully with a little help from your board-certified dermatologist. The most popular treatment at my office is PRP microneedling along with PRP rejuvenation. The treatment increases your natural collagen which helps firm the skin, fine lines, and sun damage. It has been a game changer for my patients in their 40s that desire a long-term investment into their skin health.” 

—Washington D.C. dermatologist Agnes Ju Chang, MD
