Your skin is one of the most complex parts of your body and its largest organ. This includes a vast array of dermal layers, pores, hair follicles, and other tissues that both affect your skin’s appearance and your general health.
As you age changes can occur with your skin. This is particularly pronounced with the skin of the face, where decreased natural exfoliation reduces the rate of skin cell replacements as well as collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis.
In time this can cause your skin to take on a sallow appearance, as well as the development of fine lines and wrinkles. In a situation like this, you might want to schedule a consultation with a dentist like Dr. Mohammad Banki and the specialists at Artistic Contours.
In many of these cases boosting the skin’s natural exfoliation process can help address the early signs of skin aging. This can also help to clear pores to reduce minor acne breakouts.
Medical microdermabrasion is typically administered in a single outpatient appointment and does not require any sedation. The treatment process calls for passing a gentle suction tube over the skin to help remove old skin cells and dermal debris.
Afterward, Dr. Mohammad Banki might also provide you with a prescription for a skin cream that has been formulated with an exfoliant like retinol, or Retin-A.
