How to improve uneven skin texture

Do you feel your skin is dry and has rough patches? Have you noticed certain spots on the skin that seem to be producing more sebum than others? Read further to know how to improve uneven skin texture. Before we learn about the methods to improve the skin texture, let us first understand what the common causes for an uneven skin texture are.

What are the most common causes of an uneven skin texture?

Studies show that people who have suffered from acne in the past tend to have an uneven skin texture. Apart from acne, excessive build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, genetics, sun or UV damage and pollution are some of the common causes of an uneven skin texture. A daily skincare routine and diet also play an important role in determining the quality and texture of the skin.

Micro-ageing also has a huge impact on skin texture. Right from the age of 20, there is a reduction of 1 per cent collagen production every year. Even a 3 per cent loss of collagen will be visible to the naked eye. If collagen loss is not controlled in the early stages, it will lead to older, looser looking skin with fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin an uneven skin texture.

Uneven skin texture includes bumps, enlarged pores, rough patches that make the skin looks less smooth and luminous. 

A number of times the skin texture may appear bumpy due to skin ailments like psoriasis, contact dermatitis, keratosis pilaris, acne scars and pockmarks. At the same time exposure to sun and UV rays can also be a reason behind many skin issues.  Sun exposure is known to cause freckles, dark spots, etc. and also makes the skin texture uneven.  

How to improve uneven skin texture?

There are many non-surgical treatments that can help improve your skin texture. Experienced skin care centers like Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin care offer several treatments to improve uneven skin texture. Some of their effective treatments are:

  • Microdermabrasion

This treatment is designed to exfoliate, smoothen and freshen the skin comfortably. When performed after intervals of 4 to 8 weeks, Microdermabrasion helps in improving the appearance, tone and texture of the skin. Many times the skin care specialist may use a chemical peel to enhance the exfoliation and rejuvenation process.

  • Clear + Brilliant

 In this treatment, laser energy is used for creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. The damaged skin is replaced with healthy, younger looking tissue. 

Clear + Brilliant is ideal for aging skin as it helps improve the tone and texture, giving the dull skin a natural radiance and smoothness. It helps in minimizing the appearance of pore size.

  • E-Matrix Sublative Rejuvenation

In this treatment radiofrequency energy is directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. The healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process leading to the production of new collagen and healthy skin cells. It helps in reducing mild to moderate wrinkles, superficial skin discolorations and uneven texture. 

  • Micro-Needling

Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), it is useful for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improving the skin’s overall appearance. Tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin that induces the production of collagen and elastin. This process results in the improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. 

  • Microneedling & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

In this treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is introduced along with the microneedling treatments. PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood, crucial for the healing of wounds. When PRP is used for skin rejuvenation, it helps speed the healing process and promotes cell turnover and collagen growth. 

  • Thermage Skin Tightening

In this treatment, a capacitive radiofrequency technology is used for stimulating collagen growth. Thermage provides uniform and deep heat to the affected areas, thereby increasing the production of new and remodeled collagen. This results in tighter, healthier skin.
