As you age, your skin begins to tell a story—lazy summer days spent out in the sun, the trying times of puberty, each and every time your smile reached your eyes. Even significant weight gain or weight loss can write its own chapter. Without a doubt, your skin can be the physical evidence of a life well-lived.
But these changes to your skin are not always favorable. Fortunately, textural irregularities like wrinkles, acne scars, freckles and sunspots, and cellulite can all be corrected with skin rejuvenation. These processes are intended to improve the appearance of your skin, including skin care products, treatments, and in-office procedures. The goal of all of skin rejuvenation is to reveal younger, smoother skin.
One of the most common examples of skin rejuvenation is skin resurfacing, a method that refers to any treatment or procedure that will physically remove the top layer of skin. The goal of resurfacing is to remove damage cells on the skin’s surface with different techniques, including lasers, light treatments, and acids. These different methods will vary in invasiveness with some requiring significant downtime to recover.
