What causes thinning skin?
As you age, cells flatten and lose their plumpness, making skin thinner.
It's especially noticeable on your face and the back of your hands, where skin is most exposed to the sun.
- Tretinoin (Retin-A), other retinoids
- Moisturizer, Lotions make skin feel more supple, but they won't affect the underlying cells -- only the surface layer.
- Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), These make the top layer of skin tighter and seal in moisture.
- Chemical peeling
- Laser resurfacing
