How would you like to keep your face looking young, forever? Well, there are ways to the fountain of youth - keeping your skin radiant and beautiful. 
Local Tucson Dermatologist, Gerald Goldberg with "Pima Dermatology" says younger women are looking to keep their young look. 
Dr. Goldberg says in order to look great there are a lot of different options but they vary.
Adding, "according to what a persons goals are, expectations are, what their ability for downtime is and how quickly they need their rejuvenation."
According to Dr. Goldberg,  there are three popular procedures that many women come in looking to get done.
Number one, Chemical Peels which heal 24-48 hours after the procedure. He says, people of all ages are get this procedure done and it leaves your skin fresh. 
"Brightens the complexion, gives a little exfoliation and people look brighter and more refined look." 
Number two, Verbella dermal fillers give a patients face a lift and instant gratification. Dr. Goldberg emphasizes that patients will see some bruising but it goes down within a few days. 
"For instance, in the mid face you get a little bit of a mid facial lift for volume," said Goldberg.  
"If you have lines, want a fuller lip or more defined lips that can be done very simply."
Number three, The Halo which is commonly used to treat scars, sun damage and wrinkles to improve your face. The halo procedure takes at least 7-10 days to heal. 
Goldberg says, "They basically look like they have a sunburn for three to four days." Adding, "they have some flaking, coffee ground spots on the skin but that will do much more in terms of color and texture for the skin to brighten the complexion."
Dr. Goldberg suggests everyone should have high quality sunscreen and good skin care.
