Got skin that feels like sandpaper? Displaying a dull complexion? Rough, dreary-looking skin is usually caused by a buildup of dead skin that stays on the surface for long periods of time.
It’s important to rev up the skin’s natural shedding process to remove dead skin and expose fresh skin, and there are several effective ways you can do this. If over-the-counter methods haven’t made the impact you want, a prescription topical retinoid, glycolic peels, and microdermabrasion can increase cell turnover.
Additionally, erbium lasers and fractionated laser treatments performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon can deeply penetrate the skin to increase cell turnover, diminishing the look and feel of dull, lifeless skin.
Keep in mind, however, that these treatments require downtime of at least a week.
