Beautiful at Any Age

Life in your 60s is often celebrated as a period of renewed freedom and confidence. This era is characterized by an abundance of life experience and wisdom, which can contribute to a deeper appreciation of life's joys and a more relaxed approach to its challenges. Many people find they have more time to explore new interests, deepen relationships and prioritize their well-being. It's a stage where personal growth doesn't slow down – it flourishes, opening avenues for creativity, learning, adventure and rediscovering yourself. 

Your 60s can be some of the most rewarding and vibrant years of your life, but they can also come with some cosmetic hurdles. Whether it's that stubborn sun spot reminding you of your days basking in the glory of the sun or the new softness along your jawline, we're here with state-of-the-art treatments to support you. For those who may not be ready or interested in surgical routes, our suite of options provides effective, minimally invasive ways to refresh and enhance your appearance.

At the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, we're more than just experts; we're your allies in the quest to feel fabulous at every age. We get it — taking care of yourself is as much about joy and confidence as it is about health. That's why our compassionate team is dedicated to giving you an experience that's as unique as you are, lifting your spirits and enhancing your natural beauty. Together, let's embrace all the wonderful ways you can shine, inside and out, as you step gracefully into your 60s.

Skin Texture: Banish Wrinkles and Crepiness

When you apply your makeup, you might notice that it doesn’t go on as smoothly as it used to. Fine lines, wrinkles and a certain thinness or crepiness can become more noticeable rather than achieving a smooth canvas. These changes are often due to a natural decline in collagen and elastin production. But here's the thing – you can refresh your skin's texture, and we’re here to help you do just that.

Treatments like Morpheus8, ResurFX, Fotona Pixel and CO2 CoolPeel are not just buzzwords; they are your allies against the visible signs of aging. Morpheus8 uses microneedling combined with radiofrequency to rejuvenate from within, while ResurFX is a type of laser resurfacing that stimulates your skin's natural healing to reduce wrinkles. Fotona Pixel offers a laser peel that refreshes your skin's surface by creating micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production, and the Tetra CO2 laser with CoolPeel targets the superficial layers with minimal heat for a gentler option. Each of these treatments is a step toward smoother, more resilient skin, so you can leave the crepiness on the paper for arts and crafts with the grandkids.

Skin Laxity: Lifting You Back Up Where You Belong

Perhaps you've noticed a certain looseness to your skin, a bit like the relaxed comfort of your favorite cardigan. Skin laxity and drooping are common as the structure of your skin changes with age, and it can affect all areas of your face and body. But just as you might adjust a sweater to sit just right, we can help tighten and lift your skin.

With options like the CO2 CoolPeel, Ultherapy, Sofwave and Sentient Sculpt, you have a suite of solutions for loose, sagging skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and smooth the skin on your face and neck, while Sofwave employs advanced ultrasound to rejuvenate the mid-dermal tissue for lifting and tightening your eyebrows, neck and the area beneath your chin. Sentient Sculpt adds a touch of artistry to redefine your contours with tighter, firmer skin on your arms, abdomen, back, butt and thighs. With these advanced treatments at your fingertips, you can elevate your skin to its rightful place and redefine your natural contours.

Jowls: Let’s Redefine That Jawline

Catching up with friends, you might find yourselves discussing how your faces have changed over time. Jowls are a common topic, the softening of the jawline that seems to appear overnight. They develop as collagen and elastin take a bit of a hiatus, leading to a loss of firmness in your skin. And gravity, well, it's not doing us any favors either, tugging everything just a tad downward. It's not just you; jowls are a natural part of the ebb and flow of life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t reclaim the firm, sculpted jawline of your youth. 

Here’s the good news: Our cutting-edge treatments are here to usher those jowls out the door. Morpheus8 is like the personal trainer for your skin, diving deep with microneedling combined with radiofrequency to remodel and contour that jawline back into shape. Sofwave's the new kid on the block, using intense ultrasound to give you a non-invasive lift and firmer skin. And then there's Sylfirm X microneedling that works with precision on the canvas of your skin to rebuild and restore with groundbreaking radiofrequency technology. Each of these treatments is like having a magic wand for your jawline — with just a wave, they're working to lift, tighten and define.

Sun Damage: From Sun-Kissed to Spotlessly Smooth

You know those sunny days spent outdoors that felt like pure bliss? Well, they left a little memento on your skin, and we're not talking about just a fleeting sun-kissed glow. Sun damage sneaks in like an uninvited guest, leaving behind a trail of fine lines, dark spots and a texture that's not as smooth as you remember. Each UV ray adds up to changes that can subtly (or not so subtly) alter your appearance.

Fret not, because you have a lineup of heroes ready to take on the sun damage challenge. ResurFX steps up first with its laser light show, targeting the deeper layers of skin to promote new collagen without harming the surface. Think of it as fine-tuning your skin's resilience. Then there's Fotona Pixel laser resurfacing that kickstarts your skin's natural healing process to bring back that even tone you miss. And lastly, the CO2 CoolPeel laser enters with a cool blast, gently resurfacing the top layer of your skin to diminish the telltale signs of those sun-soaked days. Each of these treatments can reveal a smoother, more even complexion, helping you look as rejuvenated as you feel after a relaxing weekend.

Facial Volume Loss: We’re Bringing Fullness Back

You might catch a glimpse in the mirror and wonder where the time — and some of your facial fullness — has gone. It’s like one day, your cheeks and lips had all the plumpness of a freshly fluffed pillow, and the next, they’re a bit more like a gently used cushion. As the natural production of collagen and fat waves goodbye, it leads to less support for your skin and a decrease in youthful facial contours.

With dermal fillers, volume loss has met its match. The Juvéderm and Restylane families of fillers, alongside the RHA collection and Radiesse, add smoothness and volume where it's needed most. And then there’s Sculptra, the gradual and graceful approach to volumization that builds collagen within your skin, laying the foundation for more youthful facial contours over time. These treatments go beneath the surface, giving your skin the fullness it needs to soften folds and lift life back into your cheeks, temples, tear troughs, lips and more.

Feminine Wellness: Turning the Tide on Intimate Health

Feminine wellness might once have been a topic discussed only in hushed tones behind closed doors (if even brought up at all), but it's time to bring the conversation into the open. The more we talk about it, the more women are realizing they’re not alone in their concerns. Whether it's caused by the natural yet unexpected progression of aging or the aftermath of childbirth that’s worsened over the years, issues like a weakened pelvic floor can manifest in multiple ways. From urinary incontinence to vaginal laxity and dryness, these concerns are real, they’re common, and they impact millions. Not only do they affect your comfort during intimacy, but they can also affect your daily life and overall well-being. 

Our feminine wellness treatments are at the forefront of acknowledging and addressing these matters, each offering a tailored approach to improving your intimate health and wellness. With Ultra Femme 360, you can find relief from vaginal and labial laxity, enhancing both comfort and aesthetics. IncontiLase offers a non-surgical answer to incontinence, helping you regain control and confidence during all of life’s activities. IntimaLase is there to alleviate discomfort during intimate moments, ensuring that dryness or pain doesn't overshadow your experience. And Emsella provides a breakthrough option for strengthening your pelvic floor while you remain fully clothed. These technologies are not just treatments; they represent a commitment to listening to and supporting women's health openly and honestly.

Hand Volume Loss: Restoring Grace to Your Grasp

Has a glimpse of your hands recently given you pause? You're not the only one who’s noticed their hands have lost some of their youthful fullness and are now showcasing more prominent veins and tendons. For many, this visible change can be a little surprising, subtly making you more conscious of how you express yourself with a wave or handshake.

Fortunately, fillers offer a quick and easy fix for hand rejuvenation. They work beneath the skin to plump it up from within, smoothing out the crinkles and dimples that age has etched into your hands. Think of it as cushioning for your skin, offering your hands a round of applause for all the hard work they've done.

Hormone Imbalances: Revitalizing Your Health and Wellness

Hormonal imbalances in your 60s can bring about noticeable changes in your physical and emotional well-being. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) using bioTE pellets directly addresses these changes by replenishing essential hormones to their ideal levels, fostering a sense of well-being and renewal. BHRT specifically targets conditions such as fatigue, weight gain, mood swings and diminished libido by providing hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by your body. The bioTE pellets are custom-compounded based on your assessments, delivering a steady, individualized hormone supply over time.

The benefits of BHRT are remarkable, with many patients experiencing a revival of vigor, sharper cognitive function, invigorated sexual drive and an overall uplift in mood and health. In addition, BHRT stands as an essential intervention in managing post-menopausal and andropause-related symptoms, providing relief from the discomforts of night sweats, hot flashes and disrupted sleep. Beyond addressing immediate symptoms, BHRT is instrumental in safeguarding long-term wellness by promoting bone density, muscle strength and heart health for a healthier, more vibrant lifestyle well into your 60s.
