Skin Care Q & A

Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic

What causes skin to dull, wrinkle, and discolor?

The primary culprit behind dull and loose skin is an unavoidable one: age. As you age, there are several issues at play:

  • Your collagen production decreases leading less elasticity
  • Age spots and lesions develop
  • Your skin thins and becomes more transparent as your epidermis loses volume
  • Your blood vessels thin, and you bruise more easily
  • Loss of fat, bone, and cartilage

These changes brought on by aging affect your skin from the inside. On the outside, your skin is under constant assault by the sun and the wind, and the effects become more noticeable as you age since your skin’s ability to repair itself slows down.

How can I care for my skin?

There are several things you can do to slow and, even reverse, many of the effects that aging and the elements have had on your skin. Dr. Brelsford offers a host of products and services by SkinCeuticals® that are designed to correct the signs of aging, protect your skin, and prevent further damage to your skin.

SkinCeuticals products are formulated based on decades of skin cancer research that led to discoveries about the critical role antioxidants play in healthy skin. All of the high potency formulas are concentrated in pure actives and designed to penetrate deep into your skin.
