Changes in Skin Texture Causes and Treatments

Irregular skin texture not only feels unpleasant, but it also makes the skin look dull.

What are the causes of irregular skin texture?

Irregular skin texture not only feels unpleasant, but it also makes the skin look dull. Sun exposure causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that gives skin its smoothness and resiliency. Sun damage hurts your skin’s texture slowly and is not highly visible right away. Over time, exposure to too much sun will cause a person’s skin texture to become leathery and rough.

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 appears blotchy and dry. Dry and dehydrated skin also affects its texture, causing skin to feel less velvety (sometimes as rough as sandpaper) to the touch, making it harder to apply cosmetics smoothly.

What are the causes of skin laxity?

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 your skin tight and supple. The loss of facial contour and definition, hollow cheeks, jowls, and “turkey neck” are some of the most common concerns that our clients feel most self-conscious about. Often they can leave people looking much older than they actually are.

What are the causes of uneven skin tone?

Skin tone can become uneven for a number of reasons. Skin blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, dark patches, and sun spots are all conditions where pigment is unevenly distributed, giving our skin a dull and blotchy tone.
