Treatments

Prevention is the best approach to skin aging. You cannot slow down time and you cannot change your DNA. Sun protective behaviors and not smoking are two easy steps you can take to prevent skin aging. Several treatments can also help slow down the signs of aging in the skin.

  • Daily moisturizer and sunscreen use
  • Topical retinoid medications
  • Procedural treatments such as laser and chemical peel
