The human skin is the largest organ in the human body and is exposed to UV sun damage, neglect, and the natural aging proccess. As we grow older this layer becomes more compact, less oxygen is transferred and less nutrients essential for healthy skin is allowed to travel through this skin layer. The major reasons for the aging skin is prior neglect or damage to the skin by UV rays and can appear in a variety of ways; pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, wrinkles, uneven skin tone.
Many of these underlying conditions can either be corrected or deferred through the use of medical grade chemical peels, microdermabrasion, cosmeceuticals, and lasers. The science that accompanies these treatment modalities is just as important since there are many products and claims to reverse the process of the aging skin.
