Skin Resurfacing Skin resurfacing targets the skin to improve its quality and appearance, correcting many years of sun damage. Specifically, it can improve the appearance of fine lines, remove superficial blemishes, correct many pigment problems, and provide a smoother texture to the skin. There are a wide range of resurfacing methods available using various chemicals, lasers, or dermabrasion. Excellent results can be obtained using many of these methods.
Hand Rejuvenation Given that hands are routinely ignored when it comes to sunscreen, sun damage plays a big part in the “aging hand” syndrome. Sun exposure over the decades sets up a prolonged cascade of liver spots and brown patches that can keep popping up long after we’ve learned to stay out of the sun. Add that to the color changes brought about by the darkness of veins, and your hands can sometimes look as if they’ve been bruised and battered in addition to looking more skeletal.
