There are a variety of treatments and options available to help improve uneven texture, and with consistency, the results can be truly effective.
What causes uneven skin texture
Whether it’s tiny little bumps, pimples or the scars they’ve left behind, fine lines or rough, flaky patches – there are plenty of ways you might see uneven texture appearing.
It can be caused by different factors, including acne, dehydration, sun damage, the natural ageing process, seasonal changes and reactions to skincare products.
Treating uneven skin texture
The key to improving uneven skin texture involves something that goes deeper than surface level: collagen production.
Collagen is a structural protein that plays a vital role in the dermis. Along with elastin, it’s responsible for giving you smooth, strong, firm skin and is found abundantly in younger skin. It also plays a role in the body’s natural wound healing response, by helping to form new skin cells to replace dead or damaged tissue. As we age, however, collagen production slows, which can make fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture and other skin concerns more apparent.
Treatments such as a microcurrent facial can improve uneven skin texture by improving your skin's collagen production. This works by using micro currents to infuse a cocktail of powerful skincare ingredients deeper into the skin, where it increases cell turnover, strengthens surface capillaries and deeply hydrates for improved redness, tone and texture.
Alternatively, microneedling is a more direct method of stimulating collagen production and uses a device with fine needles of varying lengths to penetrate the skin. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s natural skin repair process, which involves the production of collagen to help heal the targeted area – giving you stronger, smoother skin as a result.
