Dermatology Treatments To Even Out Skin Texture

Posted on

The texture of your skin can make your appearance look ruddy or radiant. Although you may prefer the latter, your skin may be telling a different story. Your skin can appear ruddy with time from sun damage and other types of damage. You may have pockmarks on your skin, large pores, or dry patches on the skin that can be giving you a ruddy complexion. To help improve your skin's texture, read on for some tips that may help you.


Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which a device is used to essentially sand down your skin and even out the texture of your skin. This is a painless procedure, although you may feel some irritation after it is over and in the days following. The procedure doesn't take long, but you may need more than one of these procedures done to see improvement in your skin, especially if you have a lot of damage to your skin. Microdermabrasion should only ever be done by a professional dermatologist to prevent damage to your skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peel procedures can be done as well in the dermatologist's office to improve the texture of your skin. This procedure uses a chemical compound on the skin to burn off the outer layer of the skin. The outer layer peels off and leaves behind the smoother complexion beneath. Chemical peels are another procedure that should only ever be left to a professional dermatologist, as someone who is not a professional could damage your skin and leave you with burns and permanent scarring.

Derma Roller

A derma roller can also be used on the skin. This is something that you can also do at home, but you need to be very careful in doing so. There are tiny needles on the roller that can damage the skin if you aren't careful. These needles should be cleaned often and never shared with anyone else. There are different sized needles that can be used, and different types of rollers on the market. This is why going to the dermatologist for this type of procedure is important, as the dermatologist will know what type of roller and needle size should be used on your skin to prevent damage. Derma rolling can help improve your skin's texture, as it helps encourage cell turnover and collagen. It can also help improve the look of your skin, as it opens up the pores.

If you have a ruddy complexion, or skin that you feel you have to hide behind a layer of makeup, you should consider these or other procedures to improve your skin's texture. Make an appointment with a dermatologist today to discuss your skin texture and what can be done to improve it.
