How A Dermatologist Can Help You Fight The Signs Of Aging

Updated on December 3, 2008

Going to see a dermatologist about aging skin is the best and most effective way to having a wrinkle free complexion not only on your face but also on the neck and hands. It is just as important to age proof your neck and hands as it is your face. If you don't then you will look odd and it will be obvious you didn't take care of your hands or neck.There are many nonsurgical treatments you can have done that have instant results with little to no recovery time. The different procedures can be quite expensive but many women say it is worth every penny.

Peels for aging hands - This procedure removes lines, deep wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation along with wrinkles that are just starting to show. Can be done in five 15 minutes visits to your dermatologist. Price for each treatment is $150

Botox for the neck area - Great for strained looking neck muscles that show all the time. Your doctor injects the Botox down the muscle bands in the neck to make them relax. This usually gets rid of the strained look that some women get when tone and volume is lost in the neck area. This can be done in just 1 visit with the treatment costing $200 to $400.

Fat Injections for hands - Get this done to plump the hands up in a natural way to disguise bones, joints, and veins. In this procedure a small amount of fat is taken from the butt or other area where you have fat via a needle. The fat is then injected into your hand just under the skin. You can have this done in just 1 visit for around $1500.

Lasers for hands and neck - Used for resurfacing skin and builds collagen. The lasers direct thousands of tiny busts of energy to the skin that heats up the collagen and stimulates new skin cell growth and improves texture. Skin will be pink or might peel for a couple days after treatment. Laser treatment can be done in 3 to 6 visits costing $1000 to $2000 each time.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) - Removes sunspots on hands or face. Works like the laser but is better at removing brown spots. Skin is pink for around 1 day. IPL can be done in 3 to 5 sessions at $250 to $500 each.

Your dermatologists can do all of these procedures and will leave you with younger looking skin. You can watch a laser treatment video below.
