Commonly referred to as textured skin, bumpy and uneven skin occurs when an accumulation of dead skin cells builds up on the skin’s surface and results in the skin looking and feeling rough. Uneven skin texture can also make the skin appear duller. Various causes like a buildup of dead skin cells, chronic sun exposure, genetics, and natural aging can play a role in developing bumpy and uneven skin. Other causes like certain skin conditions and lifestyle factors can also play a role in developing an uneven, textured complexion.
Although uneven skin texture is harmless, many patients may feel self-conscious about their skin texture, and seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. Exfoliation, either via a brush or chemical exfoliant, is one of the top at-home remedies to reduce the look and feel of uneven skin. Other at-home remedies like topical treatments and cleansers can help also improve uneven skin texture. While at-home remedies can improve uneven skin texture, sometimes these treatments alone are not nearly as effective as professional treatments. We offer a range of laser treatments to improve the look and feel of uneven skin texture so patients can enjoy soft, silky-smooth skin.
