As you age, you will naturally have thinner and drier skin and experience other aging effects such as wrinkles. Anti-aging prevents or reduces the effects of aging. Your genes, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices can influence aging effects. These elements cause dead cells on your skin to build up, leading to rough, slack, fragile, and dry skin. Doctors can use anti-aging Kingwood treatments to reduce mild and severe aging effects, leaving your skin with a smoother tone. The commonly used dermatology treatments for anti-aging include:
