I’ve read that I should exfoliate my skin. Is this true, and if so, what’s the best way to do it?
Exfoliation is necessary to make our skin healthy and look its best. What is exfoliation? It is simply removing old, dead cells from the skin surface. Exfoliating improves dullness, flaking, fine lines, clogged pores, and acne. There are several ways to exfoliate, and some patients may use more than one method. We recommend exfoliating at home with a gentle product such as ZO Exfoliating Polish. We may recommend additional exfoliating products if you have acne, wrinkles, or large pores.
Many of our patients also opt for exfoliating procedures such as the DiamondGlow, HydraFacial, or light chemical peels. These can give you quicker or enhanced exfoliation, with no discomfort and little or no visible healing.
