Microdermabrasion Is the Most Effective Means for Stimulating Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the natural process your skin uses to shed old cells and replace them with new, healthy ones. Exfoliation also stimulates new collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis. This effectively results in the slight thickening and tightening of the facial skin, which reduces the appearance of the fine lines associated with aging skin.

Unfortunately, as you age, your skin’s natural exfoliation ability and collagen production starts to slow. Most people start combating the appearance of aging skin with retinol creams or prescription Retin-A products.

If you have used retinol and Retin-A skin care products in the past and you weren’t satisfied with the results, you should ask your plastic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye, about microdermabrasion.

A microdermabrasion procedure involves a small glass tube that is lined with fine aluminum oxide crystals and a gentle amount of suction, which pulls skin cells from your face or hands to be exfoliated. This removes aging or dead skin cells, sunspots, and fine wrinkles and lines and it also stimulates the growth of new, healthy cells in the dermis.

If you have acne issues, microdermabrasion in Clarksville, Tennessee, can also improve skin texture while reducing the size of your pores, which will prevent future breakouts.
