Thin Aging Skin
Patients are often bothered by thin aging skin. It is a frequent concern, “I don’t want granny hands!” Treatment for thin skin anywhere on the body has to include sun protection.
UV rays cause accelerated aging and skin thinning. They cause sun spots, melasma, wrinkles, and skin cancer, in addition to skin thinning.
Aging, obviously, thins the skin as well. Thinning skin is as a result of loss of collagen, and elastin as well as water loss. Drinking lots of water does not make your skin thicker! Water in the skin is held by a molecule called hyaluronic acid – you probably have heard of this molecule in studying dermal fillers. As we age, we lose more collagen and elastin and lost the ability to make more as rapidly. Therefore, net loss accumulates and causes skin thinning.
Treatment for thin skin is multifactorial. It should be based on the skin type, skin damage and well as skin cancer history of the patient.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
