Slow Visible Signs of Aging

By Alix Charles, MD, FAAD

One fact will never change, everyone’s skin ages. It is well know that ultraviolet light (UV) rays from the sun are the #1 cause of visible aging. Skin that has been “sun damaged” will have wrinkles, poor texture and uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation. It is the skin’s response to repeated unprotected UV exposure.

The good news is there are solutions. Treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion have collagen stimulating and exfoliating benefits that provide results. Working with an esthetician and using medical grade products can improve skin texture and tone, especially when used in conjunction with treatments. Laser and Intense Pulsed Light procedures offer quick results with little or no down-time.
