‚ÄčAging relates to texture, tone and laxity of the skin as our years and sun exposure accumulate. There are many treatment options and this needs to be tailored to the age of the patient, their concerns and their ethnic type. This is where an expert assessment at our clinic is so important. At Western Dermatology we have many therapeutic options to choose from. Management includes appropriate sunscreen protection, skin care and cosmeceuticals. Chemical peels and laser peels are a popular choice. Radiofrequency (Secret) is popular because of the low recovery time and its appropriateness for darker skin types. Non ablative laser (1550nm and 1927nm) also has shorter recovery time. For dramatic results fractionated ablative CO2 laser resurfacing or even full resurfacing with an Erbium laser can be used but there is a longer recovery time and more risk of complications attached to these procedures.
