It is a gift and a privilege to grow older but most of us don’t actually want to look older while doing so. Thankfully, the ever-advancing world of dermatology offers a wide variety of aging skin treatments to turn back the hands of time. Well, on the effects of our skin anyway.
The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery lists the following as the top aging skin treatments to promote healthier, more youthful skin:
IPL treatments (laser and intense light treatments used to remove discoloration and tighten sagging skin)
Chemical Peels (used to remove outer damaged skin)
Ablative Laser Treatments (fractional & CO2 lasers used to remove outer layers of skin to smooth lines and wrinkles)
Non-Ablative Treatments (microdermabrasion & micro-needling using minimally invasive sanding methods to treat light scars and skin discolorations)
Dermabrasion or Dermaplaning (surgical scraping to soften skin’s surface and eliminate irregularities)
Dermal Fillers (injectables to contour & plump the skin)
Botox (nerve blockers that relax wrinkles and reduce fine lines)
Facelift (surgical procedure to remove excess fat and skin in face and neck)
Laser resurfacing (removal of skin layers that cause cells to heal naturally, ideal for scarring)
Liposuction (fat removal)
Maintaining healthy skin and protecting it as best you can from environmental factors is the key to slowing the signs of aging. Limiting sun exposure, avoiding tanning beds or extended UV exposure, wearing sunscreen and routine skin cancer screenings will aid in reducing the look of wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and sunspots, all telltale signs of aging. Topical treatments also include retinoids, Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.
Common aging skin treatments address the concerns of cellulite, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, droopy eyes and hyperpigmentation or sunspots. The most common aging skin treatments are facials, injectable fillers, laser treatment and topical products. All of these are dependent on the unique needs of the patient. Talk with your dermatologist at THE CENTER for Advanced Dermatology to learn more about how any of the treatment options listed above can take years off your skin.
