As the years go by your body starts to change. The natural process of aging can gradually reduce the rate your body replaces old cells with new and vigorous ones.

As this starts to happen it can also reduce your skin’s natural exfoliation. This causes increasing changes with the tone of your skin as well as the natural collagen production deep in the dermis. When skin aging progresses unfettered it can also cause fine lines, wrinkles and skin that looks sallow on the neck and face.

If you have been struggling to deal with aging skin, you should consider scheduling a consultation with our plastic surgeon, Dr. Otis Allen and the specialists at Institute for Plastic Surgery. After assessing the severity of the problem and the overall health of your skin our plastic surgeon can help you understand your treatment options.

In some of these cases Dr. Otis Allen can provide you with a prescription for one of Institute for Plastic Surgery’s Retin-A skin creams. When applied at the directed times it can boost your skin’s natural exfoliation to help mitigate the appearance of aging on your neck and face.

You should also note that Retin-A can potentially cause minor problems with dry skin. So, you will need to schedule regular appointments at Institute for Plastic Surgery so the doctor can monitor your progress.

If you live in the Bloomington, Illinois, area and you have been dealing with the appearance of aging skin, you should call 309.827.3881 to set up a consultation with our plastic surgeon.
