The ABCs of Anti-Aging
Everything you need to know about fighting wrinkles, saggy skin, dark spots and other signs of aging
In-office anti-aging treatments have evolved far beyond surgery. Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments use a bright light to burn off dark spots and decrease redness. According to Dr. Woolery-Lloyd, you can see results from IPL in as little as two or three treatments. Another treatment option is a fractional laser. "They burn columns of skin leaving healthy, normal skin in between," Dr. Woolery-Lloyd says. These laser procedures can improve fine lines and wrinkles in as little as two treatments spaced six weeks apart.
