How to Exfoliate Your Face for Smoother Skin

Exfoliating is an essential part of any skincare routine. Doing it right is imperative as well. Reveal fresh skin without creating microinjuries with these methods of exfoliation. 

What is Skin Exfoliation?

Exfoliating techniques help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, unclog pores, and even out skin tone. This process can improve the appearance of your skin and make it feel softer and smoother. 

There are several types of exfoliating products and treatments available. Some exfoliants work by dissolving the bonds that hold dead skin cells together. Others physically remove the dead skin cells. Exfoliating treatments for smoother skin include retinol products and dermaplaning techniques.

Exfoliation Treatments for Smoother Skin

When it comes to finding effective exfoliating treatments for fresh, smoother skin, we’ve got you covered. Check out the list of treatments we’ve put together for you.


If you’re looking for a way to achieve smoother, brighter skin, dermaplaning may be the answer. 

Dermaplaning is a shaving-like exfoliation technique that uses a scalpel to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the face, revealing a more radiant complexion. This treatment may benefit those who have dull, dry skin and want to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol Skin Care Products

Retinol is a form of vitamin A used in many skincare products. Vitamin A is an important nutrient for the skin, and retinol is one of the most potent forms of vitamin A. Retinol has many benefits for the skin, including reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It can also help to even out the skin tone and improve the skin’s overall appearance. 

Retinol is available in many forms, including creams, serums, and gels. Choosing a retinol product suitable for your skin type and needs is important. That’s why Twin Ports Dermatology offers curated retinol products tailored to your skin type, age, and past retinol use. 

  • Retinol 50 Cream – This cream is safe for all skin types and is one of our most popular retinol treatments. If you’ve used retinol in the past and want to improve your skin texture and smoothness, this moderate-strength retinol may be perfect for you. This product also takes care of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Retinol 100 Cream – If you have mature skin and have been using retinol for quite some time, this high-strength retinol may be ideal for your skin. It will reduce visible signs of aging while giving you smoother skin. 


Optimal Skin Products

Besides our retinol creams, we also offer Hydra Exfoliating Pads that can improve the appearance of your dry skin and skin texture while exfoliating your dead skin cells. This medical-grade product will also leave you with hydrated skin.
