Scott: Back to topicals. There are so many lotions and creams that claim to help with wrinkles, do any of those really work? Or are there better options or things you can do?

Dr. Jeanette Jacknin: Well Retin A is a standard and there have been many many studies that show Retin A, which is a topical vitamin A, really does work to reduce the signs and look of aging. There are many new studies that have come out on different herbals and botanicals along with the topical vitamins that help anti aging, and these are the same vitamins that help with the aging of the body and all the organs systems as well as the skin. There have been good studies on the all the vitamins I just mentioned on anti-aging, the vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin A we know with Retin A, D and E. Retin A is the gold standard, but they are all helpful, there have been studies to document that.

Scott; In terms of topicals to your face, there are things that almost peel a layer off, they are very acidic, talk about those a little beat, do those any good, or do they cause more harm than good?

Dr. Jeanette Jacknon: You mean maybe like the colic acid peels? Or the different peels? Well, you don't want to over do it, because then you get a third degree burn, you want to be very knowledgeable of what type of skin you have, if it's very fair or if it can take a darker peel. It's like peeling off the top layer of the skin and then you get the newer fresher skin and it gives a refreshed look, it does get off some of the darker cells that are on top along with the old skin cells. The skin regenerates itself from the bottom layer up every month, but if it gets a lot of pollution or makeup or dirt, its hard for it to sloth off, so the peel does help with that, but you really have to go to somebody reputable who knows what they are doing, who's not going to give you a third degree burn to your face.
There are many products out there that claim to help take away wrinkles, but what really works? Dermatologist Dr. Jeanette Jacknin discusses a few options as well as the safety of chemical peels for your face.
