Aside from gray hair, you may discover that the condition of your skin can be a leading cause of an aging appearance. The skin can show signs of aging for a number of reasons. It can develop those dark spots that many people associate with aging. It can also develop lines and wrinkles in places like around the eyes and mouth, as well as across the forehead. If you want to reverse these common age indicators, you should check with our team at Rao Dermatology about your options for professional skin rejuvenation.
If you are like most people, you do not need an invasive surgical procedure like a facelift in order to look younger. In fact, you may be among the many that would rather put up with an older appearance than undergo such a surgery. If so, you can take comfort in the fact that other options are available. Many of them allow you to receive the skin rejuvenation treatment and immediately return to your normal activities. Our medical professional can evaluate your skin and help you make a choice regarding the most effective treatment for you. Understanding what causes the most common signs of aging can help to make the decision-making process a little easier.
Lines and wrinkles start to form when the skin starts to loosen. It does so because the level of collagen in the lower layers of it starts to diminish. Collagen is that substance that helps to hold tissue together. It also makes the skin full and firm. As a natural consequence of aging, the skin will not contain as much collagen as it once did. The body naturally slows down its production of the protein with the passage of time. With less collagen present to hold the skin tight, it will begin to loosen and sag. Wrinkles and drooping jowls and eyelids are the result.
Many of the non-surgical treatment methods concentrate on stimulating the skin to make additional collagen. The intent is to return it to levels that more closely match what they were previously. When this happens, tightness of the skin will return, and the wrinkles will fade or disappear.
Skin rejuvenation can also help to remove dark spots on the skin by breaking up the excessive melanin that causes them. When this happens, the spots will gradually fade. Other skin rejuvenation treatments like microdermabrasion can help with lines, wrinkles and sunspots by gently exfoliating the skin. This will help clear away things like dead skin cells. It will also stimulate collagen production.
