UCI Health invites the public to learn more about the latest advances in skin rejuvenation, hair removal, body contouring and other procedures that can help to maintain a youthful appearance.

Dr. Christopher Zachary, professor and chair, UC Irvine School of Medicine Department of Dermatology, will share his expert insights at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 22 at the Newport Beach Central Library. The discussion is part of the library’s lecture series, “Medicine in our backyard: the leading edge.”

“From removing excess fat under the chin to softening lines on the faces to skin tightening on the face, neck, tummy and knees, aesthetic medicine is moving away from the knife,” said Zachary, who leads UCI Health Dermatology Services. “Noninvasive procedures deliver promising results, and are safer and less expensive than traditional surgery. There are a wide variety of options available to help patients look and feel their best.”

“Pre-juvenation” is another trend in aesthetic medicine, according to Zachary. This term describes the proactive approach being taken by patients in their mid-to-late 30s and early 40s who undergo treatments to help prevent the onset of wrinkles, sagging skin and other signs of aging.

Audience members will have the opportunity to ask the doctor questions following his presentation.

The Newport Beach Central Library is located at 1000 Avocado Ave., Newport Beach, CA 92660.
