How to treat uneven skin texture
1. Figure out the cause
The first step to treating uneven skin texture is to figure out what’s causing it which could be a variety of issues. Some of the most common causes are a build-up of dead skin cells, acne, scarring, and just the normal texture changes that come with aging.
It can often be hard to identify these exact causes on your own, which is why it’s important to seek professional help. Especially if you’ve been doing your own research and methods at home that haven’t been working.
At Phases Skin Care and Laser Center, we recommend all of our patients get a skin analysis prior to starting any treatment plan. A skincare consultation with an expert provides you with insights you won’t get from looking in the mirror at home.
During a skincare consultation, we can use a Skinprint Analysis to assess the unique biometrics of your skin in real-time to provide personalized skincare recommendations.
In your consultation, we can make recommendations for at-home and in-office skin texture treatment in Indianapolis.
2. Regular skincare routine
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to invest in a more effective at-home skincare routine. Taking the time to care for your skin daily can protect your skin’s health, prevent premature aging, and address a variety of skin conditions without requiring in-office aesthetic treatments.
You can use our skincare quiz to get started with personalized skincare product recommendations from our aesthetic experts.
Medical-grade skincare is truly a game changer when it comes to caring for your skin. You can only get these products from licensed providers because medical-grade products have more potent active ingredients than over-the-counter products—but more potent ingredients mean better results!
The HydraFacial is one of our popular medical-grade facials in Indianapolis. It’s a patented 3-step experience that provides deep exfoliation and infuses the skin with nourishing serums to literally leave your skin glowing.
A HydraFacial is a good entry-level skin texture treatment for those who might be new to seeking uneven skin texture treatment in Indianapolis. The deep exfoliation removes build-up and impurities to leave the skin refreshed and smooth.
It’s a gentle treatment that works for every skin tone and type. Adding a monthly HydraFacial to your regular routine can help clear up acne and even out skin texture over time.
The DiamondGlow facial works very similarly to HydraFacial, but can be considered a step up for those who need slightly more aggressive skin texture treatment in Indianapolis. We consider it the best facial for textured skin.
The DiamondGlow’s claim to fame is its diamond-tip that helps exfoliate the skin gently but effectively. The manual exfoliation also encourages your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which means that your results will continue to improve over time.
Using SkinMedica serums, your aesthetician can customize your DiamondGlow facial to match your unique skin needs and tailor your treatment to provide truly optimal results.
5. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a popular skin service that helps improve your skin’s appearance and texture. It’s a quick procedure and, depending on the depth of the peel, requires very little downtime. Our skincare specialists can customize your chemical peel treatment based on your skin type and needs.
During a chemical peel, one of our aestheticians will apply a medical-grade chemical solution to your skin and monitor it to ensure it properly penetrates. Deeper peels will need to stay on your skin longer. The chemicals raise the pH level of your skin to loosen dead skin cells and exfoliate them away.
Acne scars, skin texture, and large pores are just a few of the things that RF microneedling can address.
The needles create tiny dermal wounds in your skin, from which your body will heal naturally. This stimulates your production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid—the building blocks of younger-looking, smoother skin.
Meanwhile, the RF energy penetrates deep into the dermis layer of your skin, gently heating and enhancing the tissue, and invoking collagen production on a cellular level. This means your microneedling results will continue to improve over time!
Like other skin resurfacing treatments, the CoolPeel works by removing the surface layer of your skin (where all the damage is) to reveal the younger skin underneath. You can think of it as a deep exfoliation treatment that’s partnering with your body’s natural processes.
The CO2 laser of a CoolPeel treatment controls high energy in extremely short pulses. It delivers impressive, superficial skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that would traditionally damage the surrounding skin. The lack of unnecessary heat is why we call it “CoolPeel” and how you get an immediate aesthetic effect with minimal downtime.
8. Deep Laser Resurfacing
Phases Skin Care and Laser Center is home to the largest selection of laser treatments in the Midwest. With deep laser resurfacing, we’re able to offer our patients full face rejuvenation in Indianapolis. On its own, a deep ablative laser peel can address multiple skin concerns and leave your skin looking and feeling younger.
It’s important to understand that while deep laser resurfacing has a longer recovery period than other treatments, it provides guaranteed, long-lasting results with just 1 treatment. One of the best parts of laser resurfacing is that it addresses so many conditions on its own. We don’t typically combine it with other procedures, because we don’t really have to!
Maintaining your skin texture treatment results
Level up your at-home skincare products
If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to creating your at-home routine, our skincare experts put together this quiz to give you personalized recommendations based on your skin concerns.
When looking for new products, you should scout out those that use Vitamin C & Retinol. Both of these ingredients are associated with improving skin texture.
Avoid the Sun
You don’t need to become a vampire by any means, but the sun’s UV rays are responsible for 90% of skin changes over time. So avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use SPF when you can’t!
Exfoliate regularly (at least once a week!)
You’re going to get the best benefits from exfoliating in the morning because of the oils your body produces overnight. Some scrubs are harsh on your skin, so we typically recommend using products with glycolic or salicylic acid to help clear away the dead skin more gently.
64% of your skin is water, so it’s important to keep it hydrated. That includes drinking enough water and using a daily moisturizer.
Get enough sleep
When we sleep at night, our whole body takes time to rest and recover. For your skin specifically, this is when your body is producing new collagen and repairing damage. If you don’t give your body enough time to do this, you’ll start to notice the effects in the form of wrinkles, dull skin texture, and dark circles under your eyes.
