Treatment Options for Aging Skin
For early signs of aging, treatments that use retinoids, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acids may be enough. Chemical peels, dermabrasion, ultrasound imaging devices, or laser resurfacing may be an option for moderate to severe facial sun damage.
Deeper facial lines may be treated with botulinum toxin or fillers, including hyaluronic acid injections, your own fat, and Gore-Tex implants.
Some people may opt for surgery, such as a facelift, brow lift, or cosmetic surgery on the eyelids. Whether you do any of these things, and how much you do, is a personal choice. If you're considering it, schedule a consultation with a surgeon to discuss your goals, options, costs, risks, and benefits.
