Something that both men and women need to pay more attention to is the health of their skin. There are too many people who go about tanning and ruining their skin on a regular basis. Skin is an organ within itself, and it is designed to protect the internal organs from the affects of the environment. Just as there are some people who are not very concerned about the appearance of their skin, there are also some people who want their skin to look as good as possible.
These are the people who often look into the various cosmetic dermatology procedures that are available. The difference between cosmetic dermatology and regular dermatological procedures is that the former is completely elective on the part of the patient in order to improve their appearance. The latter is for people who actually have skin problems that are affecting their health.
The kinds of cosmetic dermatology procedures that are available to a person will depend on their age and the overall condition of their skin. However, one example of a cosmetic dermatology procedure that some people choose is the facial chemical peel. This is a corrective procedure that is done on people who want to have irregular skin pigmentations, scars, and fine lines from sun exposure or aging. This procedure basically consists of applying a thin layer of a chemical solution to the face so that it can gradually (over the course of a couple of treatment sessions) reveal the underlying healthy skin tissue.
