Austin, TX Dermatologist
Your skin is the largest organ in the body (or on the body), and highly important from a health as well as aesthetic point of view. Aging, sun exposure, genetics, disease, gravitational effects, and other factors can take their toll on the skin, and make it appear wrinkled, saggy, coarse, spotted or having other anomalies. Professional skin care can help a person preserve the natural appearance of skin for a longer time and correct the aesthetic anomalies that may have developed over time.
