Abstract

Topical therapies can be used as a solo treatment or as an adjunct to the various surgical options to improve upon and maintain the desired anti-aging results. They may also be used as a preventative therapy in younger men and women. Few drugs are currently marketed for the treatment and prevention of skin aging, whereas many cosmeceuticals,the fastest growing segment of the skin-care market, and herbal remedies are touted in the lay press. More than ever, patients are looking for a magical elixir that is easy to use,effective, and inexpensive. The more commonly used products are covered in this article.
