Patients over 70 develop thinner and more fragile skin. By the time patients are in their eighties or older, their skin can tear from even a minor bump into furniture. These tears may become a debilitating condition requiring frequent repairs. Dr. Prystowsky is very experienced in repairing these open skin tears and restoring your skin. She can also make recommendations on how you can protect your skin.
Many healthy patients over 70 are also great candidates for cosmetic procedures to provide a more youthful look. Minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures are available to remove unsightly age-related growths. Fillers, Botox, lasers, and tissue tightening are commonly used in this age group. Many people over age 70 are still active in their careers and benefit from looking their best.
