You Can Improve Your Skin’s Natural Process of Exfoliation by Using Skin Cream

Each of your skin cells has a relatively short lifespan. As the outer skin cells are naturally shed, new, healthy, youthful-looking cells emerge from the deeper layers of the dermis in a process known as exfoliation. At the same time, this also stimulates new collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis. This effectively results in a slight thickening and tightening of the skin on the face, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol is a chemical-exfoliating agent added to many retail-grade skincare creams. These retinol creams can be applied to the skin on your face, chest, neck, and hands to stimulate a modest amount of exfoliation. For many people, this is a common first step in the battle against the effects of skin aging.

If you suffer from significant skin aging, or if you haven’t been satisfied with your results from retail-grade skincare creams, your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell Kaye, can prescribe you with a cream that uses Retin-A. This is a common second step in the battle against skin aging. Not only does the cream effectively encourage exfoliation, but it also helps reduce dark spots and skin discoloration. Sometimes Retin-A cream can cause minor skin dryness and irritation. This prompted the Food and Drug Administration to mandate that the cream is only available through a prescription. This way a qualified physician like Dr. Mitchell Kaye can monitor the health of your skin throughout the process.
