There are many things to consider when looking for ways to improve skin texture. For some people, it’s all about how the skin feels and if it’s smooth to the touch. For others, skin texture is more about the appearance. But in either case finding ways to improve skin texture can make a person feel confident and beautiful, and is therefore vital at any age.
As we age, the effects of prolonged sun exposure, poor diet, pollution and smoking can all take their toll on our skin. This is characterised by a thinning of the epidermis and dermis, coarse skin texture, wrinkling, and changes in pigmentation. Collagen and elastin – the tough fibrous proteins which give our skin its texture and elasticity – are damaged and their rate of reproduction slows. Facial skin is also thinner, more delicate and more susceptible to damage and dryness than the skin on the rest of your body.
Harsh abrasions and chemicals often address superficial concerns and offer a short-term solution. We can now improve skin texture by using bulk heating to trigger the renewal of the skin.
