In the past, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face was perceived as a natural part of growing older. This condition of skin aging is often the result of decreased exfoliation. As it continues the decreased rate of skin cell replenishment and collagen production can cause wrinkles to deepen.
There are different ways to minimize the appearance of skin aging. Many people start with skin creams that have been fortified with retinol or prescription strength Retin-A. While these products can certainly stimulate increased exfoliation, they often fail to sufficiently affect significant signs of skin aging.
In a situation like this, you should consider turning to Drs. Jenson and Edwards and the cosmetic specialists at the Dermatology Center in Orem, Utah for a microdermabrasion treatment.
It is typically performed in a single outpatient appointment without the need for sedation. The microdermabrasion calls for passing a gentle suction tube over the skin on your face. The special crystals within the opening of the tube will gently remove old skin cells to stimulate dermal replacement cells and collagen production.
Afterward, we might also provide you with a prescription for an exfoliating skin cream formulated with retinol or Retin-A to further help minimize the appearance of skin aging.
If you live in the Orem, Utah area and you are struggling to minimize the appearance of skin aging, you should call 801-224-5200 to schedule a microdermabrasion at the Dermatology Center.
