To improve patient care and outcomes, leading dermatologists offered their recommendations on the top antiwrinkle treatments. Consideration must be given to:
“For antiwrinkle treatments, nothing beats a resurfacing procedure. At this time I believe that fractional CO2 laser resurfacing gives the best results with the least risk. You give up some efficacy compared to fully ablative CO2 laser resurfacing, but there is a markedly lower incidence of significant adverse events with the CO2 laser. We have been using the Lutronic eCO2 laser for the last few years and have been very happy with it.”—Mark G. Rubin, MD, Beverly Hills, CA

· Lifeline Skin Care

“Lifeline is a skin care line that is derived from pluripotent human stem cells, which have the ability to repair and renew damaged skin. Gene expression data reveal that collagen and elastin are upregulated after use of Lifeline, and I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin quality and fine lines since I started using it regularly.”—Elizabeth K. Hale, MD, New York, NY
