We all long for the soft, smooth skin we had when we were younger. Unfortunately, years of repeated sun exposure, poor habits, and skin problems such as acne may cause the skin to look uneven and feel rough to the touch. Enlarged pores may also contribute to uneven skin texture, along with fine lines or wrinkles that appear to be etched into the skin.
Uneven texture occurs when there is breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, typically in response to cumulative sun exposure and/or smoking. Those who suffer from acne may be left with scarring that causes textural irregularities in the skin. Also, cellular turnover slows down as part of the natural aging process, causing dead skin cells to build up on the surface of the skin. Dry, dehydrated skin will also contribute to poor texture.
In order to restore smoothness and boost the skin’s resiliency, we recommend therapies that exfoliate the skin and increase collagen production. APT Medical Aesthetics offers a variety of effective treatments including: clinical peels, laser treatments, microneedling, and medical grade skincare. As part of your treatment plan, wearing daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30 will be essential for optimal results.
