Aging Skin

Reduce risks and feel rejuvenated with healthier skin

You can help slow aging skin and retain a youthful appearance at any age. Some of the factors leading to wrinkled, discolored skin include aging, sun exposure, tanning and smoking.

Our physicians at IU Health recommend a variety of changes you can make to reduce damage to your skin. We also offer innovative treatments that take years off your appearance so you can enjoy healthier, rejuvenated skin.

Our commitment to leading-edge medicine and the latest scientific innovation ensures you’ll receive the most advanced treatments. Some of these include removing outer layers of skin to promote the development of collagen to strengthen skin and reduce wrinkles. You may choose chemical peels and laser resurfacing to help you with this.

Our researchers are also studying the healing effects of wounding laser treatments. Treatments cause a special kind of skin damage that encourages the skin to rejuvenate itself. This removal of damaged skin layers may even reduce risk of skin cancer.

How We Can Help

You can take action to treat your aging skin by avoiding environmental damage. For example, you can:

  • Stay out of midday sun
  • Use sunscreen
  • Wear a hat, sunglasses and protective clothing
  • Relax your face (frowns and eye strain create and reinforce wrinkles)
  • Stop smoking
  • Use face cream containing Retin A
