How to Treat Uneven Skin Texture

Uneven skin texture can range from slight bumps and thick patches to scarring and hollowed areas, like your cheeks. If you desire smooth, radiant skin, consider home skin care and Ariba Medical Spa services that can help. With a whole array of treatments, the team of specialists can help you achieve a clearer, more even-textured complexion.

What causes uneven skin texture?

You may have an unevenness to your complexion due to dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of your skin. Certain areas, such as the nose and chin, tend to have these cells build up more readily than others. The dead skin cells also cause your skin to look a little dull, without a youthful glow.

Too much time in the sun also contributes to uneven skin texture and tone, as does the natural process of aging. If you smoke, eat an unhealthy diet, or have a skin condition such as severe dry skin or eczema, you may lack smoothness. Enduring acne in your youth may leave you with scars and pockmarks that interfere with skin texture, too.

At-home treatments

If your uneven skin is mild -- just a few rougher patches in your T-zone, for example -- then a mild exfoliating cream can help. Wash your face with it just a few times a week to slough off dry skin and dead cells and reveal a smoother texture. Over-the-counter chemical peels can also help clear away the dead skin cells contributing to your clogged pores and rougher patches of skin.

Microneedling to even out texture

At Ariba Medical Spa, a technician glides a specialized tool containing very fine needles over your face. These create tiny injuries that stimulate your body’s own healing mechanisms and stimulate your body to create more collagen, a compound that strengthens and smooths skin.

Experience microneedling with Vivace®, a radiofrequency device, which further encourages collagen production. Your body pushes out old, rough skin to reveal a fresh, new you. The heat energy of Vivace penetrates below the surface of your skin to help improve your overall complexion.

And microneedling can be repeated safely every four to six weeks to help you maintain a smooth look.

Dermal fillers to erase uneven skin texture

Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm®, erase lines and wrinkles, while also filling in sunken cheeks to give you a fuller, more youthful appearance. Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which hydrates your skin to encourage a plumper effect that minimizes sagging and the appearance of scars. Dermal fillers are injected with very fine needles just below your skin.

The effects last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used, the treatment area, and your body’s own metabolism. The staff can help you decide which fillers are best for your aesthetic goals.
