Skin texture refers to your skin’s surface condition. Good skin texture is soft and smooth, well hydrated with firm collagen and elastin support. Uneven skin texture is coarse, rough, dull, dry and often sun damaged.
Uneven skin texture may be due to wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and acne scars. Or it may result from sun damage, skin aging, and a poor skin care routine. Sun exposure causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that gives skin its smooth texture and resiliency. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin and contributes to rough, prematurely aged skin. Aging is another common cause of irregular skin texture. With aging, surface skin cells aren’t shed as rapidly. This causes dead skin cells to build up; leading to skin that feels rough and has a dull appearance. Dry skin that lacks moisture also feels less smooth to the touch.
Poor hydration and nutrition can also cause the skin to dry out and feel uneven. Uneven skin texture not only feels scratchy, it also makes your complexion look lackluster and dull.
Microdermabrasion is an ideal option to unclog the skin due to the deeply exfoliating nature of the treatment. The gentle vacuum with a diamond coated head will exfoliate the top layer of dead skin removing potential clogging whilst providing refined and clarified skin.
Chemical Peels provide superficial to medium depth exfoliation using products that include glycolic acid and lactic acids (AHAs), salicylic acid (BHA), retinoids (vitamin A), resorcinol , mandelic acid, niacinamide (vitamin B3) and enzymes. The appropriate Chemical Peel can provide a simultaneous action to decongest, de-clog and disinfect skin affected by black heads and whiteheads whilst reducing inflammation and preventing future breakouts.
LLLT is a medical grade cold laser that reduces blackhead and whitehead formation and severity without heat or discomfort. Through a course of LLLT treatments the complexion will be clearer and smoother with diffused congestion and reduced breakouts.
The Carbon Laser Peel also known as the ‘China Doll Peel’ (named for its porcelain doll like finish to the skin) is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that utilises focused light beams to treat skin imperfections. The Carbon Laser Peel treatment works by applying a thin layer of carbon to the skin’s surface. Once evenly distributed, a focused light beam is emitted for a precise and targeted area. The carbon particles actively absorb the light before a vacuum suction gently removes them, along with damaged cells found in the upper layers of the skin.
The simultaneous generation of thermal energy stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen and the promotion of a healthy-looking complexion. Skin structure is visibly strengthened and even opened pores purified and cleared.
