What Causes Skin Damage?

skin damage Our skin is our body’s largest organ, which plays a massive role in our overall health and appearance. Because of this, skin damage should not be taken lightly.

It can come in different forms and can cause some serious health complications if it is left untreated. Luckily, treatment options, like chemical peels, can address these signs of damage. But first, what are some signs of skin damage? What causes it?

What Are Common Signs of Skin Damage? 

As we grow older, the neglect and damage we have shown our skin appear in various ways. Some signs of skin damage include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Changes in pigmentation, like age spots or liver spots
  • A change in skin tone or skin elasticity
  • A rough and uneven skin texture
  • Broken capillaries, otherwise known as spider veins

What Causes Skin Damage? 

Our bodies are exposed to sun damage, the smoker’s environment, and air pollution throughout life. All of these things are known as free radicals.

Free radicals are unstable atoms that cause damage to cells. This damage can cause things like illness and aging to occur.

In the skin specifically, free radicals attack the collagen in your skin and essentially cease their production of more collagen. This causes your skin to thicken, making your skin care products useless because they cannot penetrate the skin.

How Can I Treat Signs of Skin Damage? 

One of the most popular ways people address signs of skin damage is by using chemical peels. Chemical peels are a popular cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to peel off damaged top layers of skin.

By causing these layers of skin to peel off, we are essentially forcing the body to heal itself, resulting in fresh, rejuvenated layers of skin. Aside from the aesthetic boost from chemical peels, they also support collagen production, blood flow, and excellent elasticity.
