Want to look younger? Anti-aging treatments make it easier to turn back the clock. Dr. Robert Siragusa and Dr. Charles Kovaleski at Dermatology Associates Skin and Cancer Center in Panama City, FL, offer anti-aging treatments to their patients. Read on to learn more about these four anti-aging treatments.

1. Dermal Fillers- Dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Juvederm, and Restylane are used as an effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers will smooth wrinkles by replacing the collagen lost due to skin damage or natural aging. Dermal fillers can also be injected above the soft tissue of the cheeks, lifting the area to correct a sunken or aged appearance.

2. Chemical Peels- Chemical peels can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of scars, treat acne, and reduce spots, freckles and dark patches. In this treatment, an acid solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to peel off. The new skin is smooth and less wrinkled than the old skin.

3. Dermabrasion- Dermabrasion is used to treat defects and damage in the upper layers of the skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, scars caused by surgery, and color changes in the skin. This procedure involves removing the superficial layers of skin with a rapidly revolving abrasive tool. This process wounds the skin, causing it to bleed. As the wound heals, new skin cells grow to replace the old cells.

4. Laser Resurfacing- Lasers are more effective than ever—for nearly every skin problem under the sun. Laser resurfacing treatments utilize an intense light beam to treat your skin. This procedure is commonly used to treat scars, blemishes, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, sun damage, and hyper-pigmentation.
