Why Our Skin Can Look Dull

Healthy, glowing skin is something that all of us desire, yet some of us rarely achieve. Despite our efforts to maintain a healthy complexion, there are some variables that we simply cannot control. Here are a few reasons why our skin can begin to look dull over time:

  • Dead Skin Cells
    Our skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells. Without active intervention to remove them from your face, like exfoliation, the dead cells will create a dull appearance over your face.
  • Stress
    Stress can cause a variety of skin problems. From wrinkles to breakouts to flushed complexions, the hormones released when stressed are enemies to your skin. Finding healthy ways to deal with stress can improve your skin and overall appearance.
  • Lack of Sleep
    Our bodies need healthy amounts of sleep to keep our skin looking healthy. When you suffer from a lack of sleep, it can show in your face as dark circles under your eyes or a flushed complexion. Your skin can look “tired” if you don’t get the rest you need.
  • Natural Aging
    Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to stop your skin from naturally aging. Your color will dull, your skin will become loose, and wrinkles will develop over time. But just because you cannot stop it, it doesn’t mean you can’t slow it down!
  • Sun Exposure
    Your skin can become blotchy, irritated, wrinkly and even more susceptible to skin cancer if you’re consistently exposed to UV rays. Sun protection is key in maintaining healthy, younger looking skin.

How Laser & Light Therapy Can Rejuvenate Your Skin

Laser & Light Therapy is designed to restore glowing skin to your appearance by emitting wavelengths of light to specific areas. There are various forms of non-invasive and minimally invasive light and laser therapies that can assist in your skin’s rejuvenation. By utilizing technologies like SCITON® BBL™(broadband light), areas of the skin can be exfoliated, pore size shrinks and bacteria in the skin is also reduced. The texture and tightness of your skin will improve, and acne traces can also be eliminated. As a result, patients achieve smoother, healthier and glowing skin without wounding or recovery time.
