Skin Tone and Texture
Pores, or hair follicle openings, serve as an exit for sweat and body toxins, but then can often appear enlarged, thanks to genetics, oily, or aging skin. Oil will tend to settle in your pores and cause them to expand.
Improve skin texture
Would you like to go back to the days of smooth, soft skin? The aging process leaves our skin feeling uneven, coarse, dull, and dry. Whether you’re dealing with wrinkles, fine lines, acne, acne scars, or sun damage, our aesthetic treatments can help.* We want you to look and feel your best, and we can help you return to the days of soft, supple, vibrant skin.*
Even skin tone and a smooth texture are two important qualities of skin health. Skin tone is determined by the amount of melanin or pigment we have. Skin texture refers to our skin’s surface condition. Ideally, skin should be soft with a smooth, even texture, but it’s not uncommon to have skin that feels coarse and irregular.
Skin tone can become uneven for a number of reasons. Skin blotches, pigmentation, dark patches, and age spots are all conditions where pigment is unevenly distributed, giving our skin a dull and splotchy tone. Healthy and nourished skin tone is bright and luminous.
Uneven skin texture not only feels unpleasant, it makes skin look dull. Sun exposure causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that gives skin its smoothness and resiliency. Sun damage hurts skin texture slowly and is not highly visible right away. Exposure to too much sun will cause a person’s skin texture to become leathery and rough over time.
Aging is another common cause of irregular skin texture. With aging, surface skin cells aren’t shed as rapidly, causing dead skin cells to build up and skin to appear dry and blotchy.
Dry and dehydrated skin also affects its texture, causing skin to feel less velvety to the touch, making it hard to apply cosmetics smoothly.
Skin laxity, or looseness, is an unfortunate result of the aging process. As we grow older, the production of elastin and collagen in our bodies slows down. These are the two substances needed to keep our skin tight and supple. The loss of facial contour and definition, hollow cheeks, jowls, and turkey neck are some of the concerns that our patients feel the most self-conscious about. Often they can leave us looking much older than we actually are.
