Enhance Your Look with Skin Texture Improvement in Beverly Hills

Abnormal skin texture and uneven pigmentation are common conditions that almost everyone experiences at one point in their lives. Texture can include bumps, moles, wrinkles, scars, and pores — anything that causes the skin to feel coarse or irregular. While skin texture is typically not a pressing issue, it can affect the appearance of the skin, resulting in an undesirable look.

Fortunately, many treatments are available to minimize and eliminate different types of skin texture. Reducing the appearance of texture can rejuvenate your overall look and leave you with healthier-looking, smoother skin. During your consultation, Dr. Sheila Nazarian or your experienced provider will review the best options to achieve your desired results.

What is Uneven Texture?

Uneven skin texture refers to the surface feel and appearance of the skin. Different forms of skin texture may include:

  • Roughness
  • Bumps
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine Lines and wrinkles
  • Large or clogged pores
  • Moles
  • Skin tags
  • Inflammation
  • Chronic Acne
  • Acne Scars and general scarring

Chronic skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis can also stimulate irregular skin texture. The first step to treating skin texture concerns is identifying the root cause.

How Common is texture?

Skin texture is a prevalent ailment that men and women of all ages experience. It can occur in nearly all areas of the body. One of the most common causes is the build-up of dead skin cells that cause an uneven skin texture. Regular exfoliation can help break down a build-up of dead cells and leave the skin feeling smoother.

  • Typical Age: 12+

Best Treatment Options for Skin Texture

Nazarian Plastic Surgery offers many solutions to improve skin texture, including Vivace, Morphius8, Picosure, Profractional, Micro Laser Peel, Erbium Contour TRL, Halo, Renuvion, and more. Laser resurfacing devices use a single wavelength of color in a high concentration. This wavelength can produce heat to target certain small areas of skin at a time. All lasers fall into two categories:

1.) Ablative
2.) Non Ablative

Recovery time from each type is minimal, with many patients able to resume regular activities immediately following the procedure. Ablative lasers target the skin's surface, removing damage and impurities, and Nonablative lasers target underneath the surface layer.

Aside from laser treatments, surgical and non-surgical treatments, at-home remedies, and products are available to correct various skin texture conditions and enhance treatment results.

Surgical Treatments

  • Mole, Cyst, and Lipoma Removal: Mole, Cyst, and Lipoma Removal is a surgical procedure that removes cysts, moles, and lipomas from the surface layer of the skin as well as below the skin.
  • Scar Revision Surgery: Scar Revision Surgery is a procedure that helps to reduce multiple types of visible scarring. This procedure can treat discoloration as well as improve the overall texture of the skin.

Non-Surgical Treatments

  • Lasers: Lasers incorporate innovative cosmetic technology that allows cosmetic surgeons to correct various skin texture conditions. Some of our favorite laser treatments for uneven texture, rosacea, and melasma include:
  • Chemical Peels: A chemical peel is a skin treatment that uses a chemical exfoliant to remove and heal damaged outer layers of the skin. Several levels of peels are available, depending on your specific needs and goals. These are good for brightening your complexion, reducing hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, and improving texture.
  • Microneedling : Microneedling is a procedure where tiny needles pierce the skin to boost collagen production and increase skin cell turnover. These treatments effectively treat uneven texture caused by sun damage, open pores, and acne scars. Patients often see noticeable results after just one treatment.

At-Home Remedies: Products & Devices

Optimizing your skincare routine for products catered to your specific skin concerns will help reinforce the surface of the skin, eliminate dark spots or skin damage, and reduce your pore size for a smoother texture devoid of rough patches.

  • Skin Exfoliation: Physical exfoliation of the skin with a chemical, mechanical, or enzymatic exfoliant is a highly effective way to treat skin texture at home. Exfoliating breaks down the build-up of dead skin cells on the surface layer of the skin, resulting in a smoother, more even texture.
  • Moisturize: Staying hydrated and adding a potent moisturizer to your skincare regimen can help reinforce the skin's moisture barrier and reduce and prevent uneven skin texture and tone.
  • Broad Spectrum SPF: Using high-quality sunscreen during direct sun exposure can help reduce sun damage and regulate skin texture issues.
  • Skin Rejuvenation Devices: These devices include LED masks, tools for enhancing skin exfoliation, dermarollers, and more to improve your skin texture at home or prolong the results of a cosmetic treatment.

Qualified cosmetic surgeons use cosmetic lasers to treat a wide range of skin conditions. A laser is a concentrated, high-energy light that can target problem areas on the skin, focusing on very small sections at a time.

Cosmetic laser surgery cost can depend on many factors. These include, but are not limited to, geographical location and the type of laser used, as well as the number of treatment sessions needed. Patients can expect to spend between $1,000 to $3,000 per treatment session.

Professional cosmetic surgeons can walk patients through the process, discussing potential results and expectations. Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve the desired results. The skin tightening process will occur over multiple weeks following treatment.

Laser treatment is a cosmetic procedure that can help with a variety of skin conditions. These conditions may be due to the natural aging process, skin exposure, or acne. Laser treatment therapy tends to result in more youthful skin.

Exfoliate, try a chemical peel, wear SPF, and stay hydrated.

Skin texture can change due to environmental factors, aging, dead skin cell build-up, or genetics.

Stress is known to affect all components of the skin, including elasticity, texture, and appearance.

Textured skin is extremely common. It is just as common as uneven skin tone.

Skin texture does change as we age. Over time our skin loses elasticity, and collagen begins to break down. This results in sagging skin and wrinkles.

For roughness and enlarged pores, it can take anywhere from eight to twelve weeks to use proper at-home care and a consistent skin care regimen.
