I'm wondering what type of resurfacing machine whether it be laser or otherwise can be used successfully on bodyskin, particulary fronts of thighs. I'm in the process of trying some chemical peels but I really don't think they are going to make a real difference. I need something that will remove the outer layer of skin. My muscle tone is good but the skin seems to have a life of its own due to years of sundamage in the Hawaiian sun. Some spots but it's the crepiness that really bothers me. Any suggestions proven to work? Thanks for any info. Allison ?
I'm in the same boat as you, only mine sounds worse. I have very bad wrinkles below the knee and down to my feet! I just started seeing the crepiness on the tops of my legs, and it isn't pretty! What's scary is that it seems to appear so suddenly and so abundantly!
Anyway, I have a post on this topic that you may want to look at where I got a few good replies from people with suggestions.
Also, as far as laser goes, I will be looking into fraxel in the very near future. It supposedly can be used all over the body. I'm sure it would be expensive for what you and I need it for, but it's maybe worth a try. I've heard good things and there are informative posts here about it too.
No matter what you do, if you try something that seems to work for you, please let me know!
