Many topical agents and physical modalities have been used throughout the years to give the face a more youthful appearance. The goal has always been to effectively and consistently rejuvenate the face while minimizing the time of recovery and risk for complications. Because each person is unique, there is no one modality that is best for everyone. This article reviews some of the options available for treating photoaged skin in 2001. Various lasers (e.g., vascular lesion, pigmented lesion, hair removal, and resurfacing), botulinum A toxin, chemical peels, and various dermal and subcutaneous filler substances all are discussed.
