Skin Texture

As the skin ages, it sees more production of the enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases. This enzyme breaks down collagen, and skin loses its elasticity.  This results in fine lines and wrinkles of all skin but more noticeably on sun-exposed areas such your face, neck, and backs of your hands. 


Treating Skin Texture*


Cosmeceuticals are skin care products that have measurable biological effects on skin. Skin care products are your best bet for the long-term prevention of aging.* Everyone should use a high quality broad spectrum sunscreen every day. And everyone should be using anti-oxidant serums such as vitamin A and vitamin C. After that there are numerous specialty products with anti-aging properties. Skin Medica and Cellcosmet have outstanding lines.* 

The best treatment is prevention, so start using sunscreen and cosmeceuticals early and use them every day.

Micro-needling remodels skin, adding elastin and collagen. Thousands of tiny needle punctures are made. These microscopic wounds trigger the body's healing response resulting in a significant improvement in skin texture and lines.* Several sessions are required (3-6) depending on the severity of the problem. Treatments are generally very well tolerated.

Laser Skin Resurfacing (Pixel)

The Pixel is a safe and easy way to treat your wrinkles.*

Its advanced laser beam is split (or "fractionated") into numerous tiny beams, which creates tiny holes that are surrounded by healthy skin. The uninjured skin seals over the tiny holes very quickly. Over the course of several treatments all of your skin is replaced by fresh new skin.

In the 1990s, earlier forms of laser treatments treated wrinkles and folds by burning off every square millimetre of damaged skin, which is why patients needed a month to heal. The Pixel now allows patients to fully recover in a matter of days.
