After dull skin treatment by APT Medical Aesthetics
A tired, lifeless complexion is often one of the first visible signs of aging, as the skin’s natural renewal process slows down. Dull skin is characterized as skin that lacks the radiance and glow commonly associated with a young, healthy appearance. In young people, skin cells turn over every 28 days. By the time one reaches age 40, cellular turnover has slowed to every 40 days. As dead skin cells build up, the skin can no longer reflect light effectively, thus resulting in dullness and uneven skin tone and texture.

Many factors contribute to a dull complexion including: natural aging, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet, chronic sun exposure, and pollutants.  Since dull skin is often accompanied by dehydration, fine lines and skin crepiness may also be present. Dull skin treatment like  Clinical Peels, proper skincare, combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase skin exfoliation and stimulate cellular turnover - restoring the skin complexion to one that is luminous and radiant.
