ROUGH TEXTURESCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
Those who deal with chronic texture issues will see the best results with laser treatments. Good skin health is evident with good skin elasticity, even tone, smooth texture and good hydration levels. It is important to understand how each factor influences the other and how they are influenced internally by age, diet, facial products, hormones and cosmetic treatments. In the dermal layer of the skin, collagen synthesis occurs and elastin is produced from cells called fibroblasts. Any treatment or products that increase the collagen content of the dermis will improve the texture of the skin. At Atlantic Dermatology and Laser we offer a combination of collagen inducing treatments such as Broadband Light -BBL™, Dermapen™, NanoLaserPeel®, chemical peels and laser resurfacing to aid in increased exfoliation. As each patient’s case is different; we will tailor a treatment program specifically for you and your circumstances.
