Chronic Exfoliation Can Age Your Skin

layers_of_the_skinChronic exfoliation such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments and other “anti-aging” procedures attack and actually thin the Dermal Layer of our skin.

The beautiful Dermal layer is alive and makes the layer of dead (but crucially necessary) skin layer that we see in the mirror is fundamentally our REAL skin. Aggressive exfoliation procedures demand a tremendous amount of work from this layer. Imagine running a marathon over and over without replenishing your body with food and water. At some point you would be exhausted and lose pep. This is essentially what happens to our Dermis. There is no question that exfoliating the epidermis does speed cell turnover BUT it is not because it is a healthy event! It is because the skin is rushing to fix the damage, much to the detriment of the dermis.

The theory of daily exfoliation has been suggested and implemented for the last 30 years. There is no evidence that it has benefitted the skin and there is a tremendous amount of evidence that is leads to more damage!

How are you supposed to achieve optimal skin health? I practice Dermal Remodeling. Instead of penetrating acids or lasers, Dermal Remodeling delivers natural ingredients for sustainable cell turnover, literally detoxifies old stored debris, and dramatically increases the thickness and vigor of the deeper dermal living skin layer!
