Delays, stops or retards the aging process. Our bodies are made of cells, and aging occurs when cells are dead. As an infant, child and young adult, our body’s cells are strong, resilient and can make new cells. However, cell growth slows down as we get older.
For early signs of aging, treatments that use retinoids, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acids may be enough. However, for moderate to severe sun damage, chemical peels, injectables, microdermabrasion, ultrasound energy devices, or laser resurfacing, are recommended.
