You have an at-home arsenal full of wrinkle-smoothing creams and use them faithfully, but maybe you’re ready for a little extra help. Consider this your guide to the best anti-aging treatments at your dermatologist’s office. We’ll share the top fixes your doctor has to offer, including the quick and easy peels that deliver glowing skin and the latest line-erasing services.
When creams and serums aren’t cutting it, it may be time to seek professional help. Whether you’re an anti-aging novice looking to scratch—or rather, exfoliate—the surface or you’re ready to take the plunge and try an injectable, find out how your dermatologist can deliver major anti-aging results quickly!
Skincare Treatments for Early Signs of Aging
You’re starting to see the early signs of aging. Your biggest complaint: Where did my glow go?
Skincare Treatments for Intermediate Signs of Aging
Fine lines are starting to appear with more frequency and sun damage-induced brown spots are beginning to surface.
Your top treatment: A non-ablative, fractional laser. This type of laser targets the skin below the surface, stimulating new, skin-firming collagen without injuring the top layer. No open wounds means little downtime (usually two days), but it also means you’ll need a series of three to five treatments to see results. Ask your dermatologist about Fraxel Restore Dual, which tackles lines as well as pigmentation issues on skin’s surface. Wondering how to get rid of wrinkles (or worried about a few pesky lines—say between your brows, across your forehead, or around the eyes)? Ask your doctor about injectable neurotoxins like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, or Xeomin. These freezers can help smooth creases for three to six months.
