Anti-Aging Time Management

Special Offer


Antiwrinkle fighters range from the tried-and-true to the seemingly sci-fi. Here's one for every comfort zone.


3 months: Soften deep wrinkles. L.A. cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ronald Moy recommends doing three fractional erbium laser treatments (varies; about $600 per treatment) to shock collagen production into overdrive — timed at least one month apart. (Downtime is about a week, and best results appear as skin heals over the course of each month.)

1 month: Reverse skin's DNA. "A new UCLA study proves you can reverse cellular DNA damage, and therefore fine lines, with topical repair creams," says Moy, referring to new products from lines like DNA EGF Renewal, and Celfix Cosmeceuticals. Patients typically see results in about 30 days.

1 week: Be aggressive. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin injections (about $500 each), and gentle lasers have minimal recupe time. Skin guru Kate Somerville preps clients for events with her Pearl laser treatment, $1,500. "It quickly reduces wrinkles and fine lines but also targets large pores and uneven texture," she says.
