Quit Smoking to Improve the Health of Your Skin!

Smoking damages and ages skin, causing premature wrinkles as it destroys collagen and elastin. Smoking narrows blood vessels in the skin, reducing blood flow, which in turn, reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients delivered to the skin. If you need help to quit smoking, see your doctor for smoking cessation strategies. Your doctor may refer you to the Calgary Tobacco Cessation Program  http://www.smokefreecalgary.com/tobaccocessationprogram.php.  Your laser rejuvenation treatments will be more effective and last longer once you quit smoking. Set a quit date today!
