Exfoliation is the natural process where your skin sheds the upper layers of cells, which in turn stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells. The natural process of exfoliation also stimulates new collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis. This effectively results in a slight thickening and tightening of the skin on the face. This will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and mitigate the appearance of skin aging.
For many people the first step in countering the appearance of skin aging, involves skin creams that have been fortified with either retinol or Retin-A. This often produces a modest amount of exfoliation.
However, the microdermabrasion procedure offered by Dr. still remains the most effective method of exfoliation.
Microdermabrasion also has the added benefit of helping to improve skin texture and cleaning pores to help prevent acne.
During the microdermabrasion Dr. uses a small glass tube lined with fine aluminum oxide crystals. A gentle amount of suction to pulls skin cells from your face or hands into the tube, removing them and stimulating exfoliation.
If you are interested in exploring your exfoliation options, you should call Dr. ’s clinic in Pleasant Grove, Utah at 801-829-8355 to ask about microdermabrasion.
