TREAT UNEVEN SKIN TEXTURE
Our skin is constantly fluctuating because of genetics and hormonal health, and responding to our hectic lifestyles, free radicals, and environmental stressors, which can lead to skin that is less-than-radiant.
If there’s a skin concern that’s more frustrating than uneven skin tone, it would probably be uneven skin texture. It’s something that can put a damper on one’s self-esteem and can make one incredibly self-conscious. Unlike hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture is more difficult to conceal with makeup and can sometimes be impossible to address at home using drugstore skincare products alone.
CAUSES OF UNEVEN SKIN TEXTURE
Uneven skin texture is a result of excessive buildup of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. It’s the reason why the skin feels dry, rough, bumpy, and dull-looking. The most culpable reasons why you have uneven skin texture are:
Gravity - This force actually does play a large role in pulling our looser skin downwards.
Loss of Collagen - The body’s collagen production reduces by about 1% each year. As a result, skin sags, and wrinkles and lines develop. Collagen is indispensable because it provides structure, volume and elasticity of the skin.
Sun Exposure - UV rays from the sun penetrate into the skin and injure the elastic fibers that are responsible for the firmness of skin tissues. Sun exposure is also responsible for wrinkles, sun spots, and uneven skin pigmentation on the face, hands and chest.
Weight Fluctuations - With the loss of skin elasticity that comes with age, our skin does not react effectively to weight fluctuations.
Loss of Volume in the Face - At approximately the age of 35, the fatty layers beneath the skin begin to thin, and the ligaments that support the facial muscles begin to stretch. In time, this causes the skin to sag.
You May Be Noticing That Your Skin Feels Dull And Lackluster, Or Even A Bit Rough, Bumpy And Blotchy Looking.
HOW DOES SKIN BECOME UNEVEN?
Uneven skin tone and texture is a very common concern and can have a number of causes and presentations.
Dull or Rough Skin - This is often caused by a build up of dead skin cells at the surface of the skin. Our skin naturally sheds dead and damaged cells on a regular basis to make way to new cells, but sometimes they don’t shed like they’re supposed to. Instead they build up on the surface causing the skin to look dull or have a slightly rough feeling.
Red or Blotchy Skin - Skin can be red or blotchy in appearance for a number of reasons. Most often it is due to inflammation either locally in the skin itself, or systemically from things like hormone imbalance, food intolerances, or gut health issues. This could be caused by Rosacea or by using harsh ingredients that damage the skin barrier.
Uneven Complexion - A lifetime of UV exposure without protection can often lead to skin that is discoloured and uneven. You may also experience Post-Inflammatory-Hyperpigmentation after blemishes and be prone to pigment irregularities.
Congested skin - This is typically the result of a build up of dead skin cells, excessive oil, and dirt or debris in the skin. Congested skin can cause rough, thick, and bumpy, blotchy skin.
Effectively addressing uneven skin texture requires a combination of in-clinic cosmetic procedures and dermatologist-approved skincare routines involving medical-grade products. Here are some of the latest uneven skin texture treatments offered at Rejuvenus Clinic:
CLINICAL PEELS - Clinical peels or chemical peels are types of exfoliating treatments designed to refresh and rejuvenate the skin’s natural health. There are different types of clinical peels depending on the active ingredient used and the depth of peeling involved. The deeper the peel, the more dramatic results you can expect. They show promising results as an uneven skin texture treatment because they can get rid of layers upon layers of dead skin cells, revealing a baby-soft complexion and luminous glow once the skin has fully healed. In addition, getting clinical peels is a smart anti-aging strategy because they stimulate natural collagen production.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING TREATMENTS - Laser skin resurfacing generally uses an intense light beam to target and correct visible skin damage accurately. There are two types of laser treatments: ablative and non-ablative lasers, also known as fractional skin resurfacing that guarantees precision, safety, and consistent results. Laser also promises a more painless and comfortable treatment compared to other traditional laser resurfacing options.
MICRONEEDLING - Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is one of the most promising skin rejuvenation treatments. It’s a gentle and non-invasive procedure that creates controlled micro-injuries to encourage the skin’s natural repair process and healthy production of essential skin proteins, collagen and elastin. Microneedling stimulates cell regeneration and replaces old, damaged skin cells with new ones, giving you healthy, plump and youthful skin.

I Have Deep Lines Etched Into My Skin. Can I Have Dermal Filler Injected Into Them?
Possibly. If the lines are very deep, then dermal filler may help temporarily plump them out so that they are less noticeable.

Some examples of resurfacing treatments include Halo laser, and microneedling.

Why Is Exfoliation So Important In Keeping The Skin Smooth?
As we age, our skin does not renew itself as quickly as it did when we were younger. As a result, dead skin cells do not shed as efficiently, creating a dull look to the skin. Regular exfoliation helps to remove that outer layer of dead skin cells so that newer healthy skin can be revealed.
What Results Can I Expect with Microneedling?
The final results of microneedling can be spotted at least 4 to 6 weeks after the initial treatment. Eliminate uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, as well as notable improvements in acne scars as you continue with regular treatments.
