Love Your Glow: 3 Ways to Exfoliate Signs of Aging Away

A build-up of dead skin cells, hormones contributing to loss of moisture, and years of sun damage are all dead giveaways of your age. As we get older, the skin can begin to look dull, uneven, and lifeless making us appear to have more years under our belts than we actually do. You work hard to keep yourself feeling young— with a simple tip, Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center wants to make sure you look like it! Your solution: exfoliation. Below, we offer the top four non-invasive ways to do so.

skincare atlantaMicrodermabrasion: Using an FDA-approved exfoliating wand, microdermabrasion immediately revitalizes and restores vibrant, healthy texture. This treatment boasts no downtime or discomfort, softens skin and erases mild imperfections by partially or completely removing the dead, outermost layer of skin.

Chemical Peels: By using a customized chemical solution, chemical peels eliminate the top-most layer of skin to reveal a fresh, soft, younger-looking complexion.  Our chemical peels can diminish imperfections, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and restore collagen.  They require minimal downtime and are performed by our licensed estheticians. We recommend Jessner’s, Mandelic, and the Vi Peel for anti-aging purposes. Chemical peels can also be used on the face and neck to smooth fine lines and increase collagen production.

Products: We recommend products containing retinol, glycolic, lactic and/or salicylic acids. You can find these powerful ingredients commonly in many anti-aging skincare products. Our private-label AHA/BHA Exfoliating cleanser with jojoba beads is a deep cleansing lotion that includes the alpha and beta hydroxy acids of glycolic, lactic and salicylic. These naturally anti-aging acids loosen the bond of dead skin cells, accelerating the skin renewal process.  Jojoba beads gently, but effectively exfoliate the skin to prevent occlusion of pores, revealing fresher and more youthful skin with consistent use.

Certain types of skin need careful attention when it comes to exfoliation, including sensitive, acne-prone, and/or pigmented skin. Though these skin types can still benefit from exfoliating, being too harsh can cause issues to worsen.
