Facial Skin Rejuvenation
The skin is the largest and most visible body organ.  As skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic.  Collagen and elastin, the tissue that keep the skin firm, becomes weaker because gravity, internal, and external factors exert a constant downward pull resulting in a droopy appearance. The goal of facial rejuvenation is to restore a more youthful look be helping to reserve the appearance of aging and sun-damage.    It can reduce wrinkles, sun spots, and loose skin, improve skin texture and remove unwanted blotches or damaged blood vessels. The Skin Center offers an array of techniques to rejuvenate skin to a fresh, youthful appearance.

 

Topical Products

Topical products can include percription drugs or cosmetics that are used to treat symptoms of anging.  Popular in office cosmetic products include OBAGI, Kinerase, The Skin Center’s specialty product line and Skin Medica. Often the simplest and cheapest form of anti-aging products often over looked is the daily use of sunscreen.
