As we age, our skin’s structure changes. One of these changes is a loss of density. Most common in women of post-menopausal age, a loss of density results in thinner, weaker, fragile skin. As the skin loses its shape, wrinkles become deeper and skin can look dull and pale.
Chemical peels are widely used to treat a loss of density. Although they deliver good results, the procedure can be aggressive on delicate ageing skin, there are often side effects and the patient can take time to recover.
