I am a 40 year old man from Lake Travis and I’ve just turned 40 and I’d like some type of skin resurfacing procedure to improve my skin. I feel it looks dull. What are my options?
In a 40-year-old there are multiple options to improve your skin. The most important of which is to get onto a good skincare regimen including daily sunscreen and retinal. PCA skin care is an excellent choice. Resurfacing the skin is a balance of how severe your photo-aging is and how much recovery time is allowed. Usually a 40-year-old will respond well to broadband light therapy or light chemical peels to resolve typical issues. Usually a deeper more significant chemical or laser resurfacing with its associated recovery time are not needed. In the event that your skin has been exposed to significant free radicals such as UV rays and especially cigarette smoke, this deeper resurfacing may be warranted. A consultation is the best way to assess your desired results as well as the downtime allotment.
