Worried about wrinkles, dullness, brown spots, and sagging skin? Stop—it causes lines! Instead, take action by talking to your doctor about in-office treatments that can help you face your 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s with confidence.

8 Ways to Look Younger Now!-2In Your 20s

For the most part, "this is an incredibly forgiving decade," says David E. Bank, M.D., a dermatologist in Mount Kisco, NY. But in your late 20s, the skin's natural process of exfoliation starts to slow down. This means that as fewer new cells are produced, dead ones pile up on the surface, creating a thick layer that can make your complexion appear sallow and less radiant.

TRY: A LIGHT CHEMICAL PEEL

What it is: During this 10-minute procedure (sometimes called a "lunchtime peel"), a dermatologist or trained aesthetician applies a solution containing a low concentration of alpha and beta hydroxy acids or milder fruit-based enzymes to dissolve dead cells. The treatment leaves skin softer and brighter; a series of peels fades brown spots, "shrinks" enlarged pores, and, if you're acne-prone, keeps breakouts at bay.

What to expect: You May experience mild stinging and redness, but any tingling or flushing should subside after a few hours. "Your skin will also be more sensitive to ultraviolet rays," says Bank. "So be sure to avoid the sun and slather on an SPF of 30 or higher."

Average cost: $100 to $300 per treatment, but ask about package deals—a plus because monthly visits are often recommended to maintain your results.
