During our 20s, our skin cells turn over about every 14 days. As we age, however, that rate of cell turnover slows to every 45 to 65 days. Collagen and elastin production slows as well, resulting in skin that appears dull, dry, and thin. If your skin has been lacking the clarity and vibrancy of youth, an exfoliation treatment at Dr. Edward Piña’s Texas cosmetic surgery center may be just what you need to restore it.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic technique that gently and effectively buffs away the top layer of skin to reveal the fresh, vibrant skin beneath. Your skin’s texture will be refined and its color evened as collagen production is stimulated. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, age spots and discolorations will be minimized, and pores will be unclogged and refined.
A professional spa facial or skin resurfacing procedure can be appropriate for all skin types and will result in healthier, younger-looking skin as it stimulates collagen production and reveals fresher, newer skin beneath the layers of older skin cells. You will be left with firmer, suppler skin that feels as good as it looks.
