Age, environment, heredity, hormonal changes, overall health and diet are all major factors in skin condition as it relates to normal skin tone, texture, and color. Healthy skin has a natural fullness and glow and defies age at any age.

What causes poor skin tone, texture, and color?

As a person ages there is a natural decline in the body’s manufacture of collagen and elastin, which keep the skin looking plump and naturally springy to the touch. Loss of these vital chemicals diminishes skin tone, texture, and color. Prolonged exposure to UV in sunlight, cigarette smoke, pollution, climate, and chemicals all can have a harmful effect on the skin and its appearance. Pre-existing skin conditions such as acne, melasma, and rosacea all can affect the skin’s overall evenness and color.

There are many different non-invasive procedures at Shanthala MD that can be used to improve skin texture. These procedures can be used not just on your face but your whole body, offering a completely rejuvenated appearance. They are also safe, non-invasive, and they all work to restore the natural beauty of your skin with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
