The psychosocial impact caused by these disorders must be considered.
Tazarotene (Tazorac®, Allergan) has been shown to be effective in reducing the effects of photoaging in short term studies. To determine its effectiveness in the longer term, a 24-week multicenter, double-blind, randomized, vehicle controlled intervention study of 563 patients with facial photodamage was carried out.
