Exfoliation is a natural process that causes old skin cells to be shed on a regular basis to accommodate new skin cells as they emerge from the dermis. This also helps to promote new collagen production to help your skin maintain its elasticity.
As you grow older the rate of exfoliation slows. Over time, it can leave you with dull skin that has lost its luster, changes in skin tone, as well as the gradual development of fine lines and wrinkles.
Many people experiencing the early stages of skin aging will experiment with various retail level skin creams. These products can vary in effectiveness and cost.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, you should consider scheduling a consultation at Togba Ellis Plastic Surgery. After a basic assessment of your skin and the degree of skin aging, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis with their team can help you understand the most effective method for addressing the appearance of skin aging.
In many of these cases, the most convenient method is our OBAGI® Skin Rejuvenation System. This system is a medical-grade, prescription-strength skin rejuvenation system that can be used at home daily. Applying it each day can help stimulate exfoliation to restore some of your skin’s youthful appearance.
If you live in the Oakland, CA, area and you are frustrated by the early appearance of skin aging, you should call 888-811-4829 to schedule a consultation with our clinic. We are always happy to help in any way we can.
