As you go about your day the upper layers of your skin cells are shed through a natural process known as exfoliation. As this shedding happens it also stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells, which serve to rejuvenate your skin’s youthful appearance.
Unfortunately, as you age the production of new collagen in the deep layers of the dermis starts to slow. By using retinol or Retin-A fortified skin creams and products it can stimulate the natural process of exfoliation to help reduce the visible effects of skin aging and improve collagen production.
If you have used retinol and Retin-A fortified cream in the past and you weren’t satisfied with the results, you might want to consult with Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD about a microdermabrasion procedure.
It’s estimated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that over 970,000 microdermabrasion procedures are performed each year.
The microdermabrasion Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD employs, uses a small glass tube lined with fine aluminum oxide crystals and a gentle amount of suction to pull skin cells from your face or hands to be exfoliated. This helps to remove aging or dead skin cells, sun spots, fine wrinkles and lines and stimulates the growth of new healthy cells in the dermis.
Microdermabrasion can also help to improve skin texture while also reducing the size of your pores. This can have the added benefit of countering modest acne issues.
If you are interested in microdermabrasion, please feel free to call Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD at 914.235.5171 to schedule a consultation.
