Sun damage and aging cause our skin to change. As we get older, we start to develop fine lines and wrinkles, and too much exposure to the sun can lead to dark spots or blemishes on the face.
At Dr. English’s practice in Little Rock, AR, we offer a number of skin procedures to get your skin looking its best. Whether you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, get rid of sunspots or blemishes, smooth out texture, reduce scarring or simply rejuvenate tired-looking skin, board-certified facial plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jim English can help you achieve the results you desire.
Skin resurfacing procedures, as listed below, are designed to improve the skin’s overall appearance. The desire to improve one’s skin has evolved over the centuries. The Egyptians used to bathe in sour milk to improve their skin not knowing that it was the lactic acid we use today that removed the outer layers of sun damage and gave their skin a more youthful appearance. The French during the Renaissance would apply red wine to their face utilizing the tartaric acid in the beverage to achieve the same result in addition to the benefits of the grape’s antioxidant properties. Moreover, the Turkish people would lightly singe their skin with fire to cause their skin’s exfoliation.
