Can You Really See Buried Skin Damage?
Damaged skin can sometimes seem to hold everything in place. As this is slowly rejuvenated, the skin may briefly appear to transform. Is this a good thing? And is so-called "buried skin damage" a real biological phenomenon

How to Improve the Appearance of Your Skin
As abrasion methods and hard peels remove the upper layers and may cause deeply buried scar tissue to become more visible.
It is this buried skin damage that is often covered over with normal skin. As such deep damage becomes visible, is is important to focus on the use of hydroxy acids (to break down and remove damaged tissue) and follow up with copper peptides (to help reveal a brighter, blemished-reduced appearance).
However, this method takes time and patience. But in time is a very effective way to result in younger-looking, healthier skin.
The key to improving the appearance of the skin (even though this transition period of buried skin damage being pushed to the fore) is the use of a good method of exfoliation (with hydroxy acid and/or manual abrasion) + copper peptides to help initiate strong skin repair.
Keep in mind that consistency and patience are vital.
