Question: I’m a woman in my mid 40s and have a number of complexion issues that I’d like to improve and at the moment, I’m only interested in non-surgical options. My biggest problems are a bit of sun damage and some fine lines around my eyes and mouth. I also still break out in small pimples from time to time, mostly in the area of my forehead and around my nose. What non-surgical services or skincare products would help me with these problems?
Answer: Fine lines around the lips, mouth and eyes are best treated with a combination of skin care, botox / dysport, and fillers like Restylane. Chemical peels and CO2 fractionated laser can be added as well for that extra boost. A good skin care regimen using Retin-A and microdermabrasion and peels can help reduce acne. IPL or phototherapy also works in some to improve acne. The answer depends on your skin color and race and other physical exam factors.
