Having smooth skin may seem like an impossible dream for those with textured, splotchy, rough skin, acne, or wrinkles. Fear not! There are a few things you can do to get smooth skin. Before you can get your picture-perfect skin, it is important to understand the causes of your skin condition.
Causes of Rough Skin
There are a few different issues that can cause your skin to become rough. For example, if you have acne, the roughness is caused by inflammation and scarring. If you have wrinkles, the roughness is caused by a loss of collagen and elasticity in your skin. For those with textured skin, it could be due to any number of things, including dryness, sun damage, or even genetics.
Luckily, there are a few things you can do to get smooth skin, regardless of the cause. If you dream of a smooth, glowing complexion, it is important to follow basic skincare rules.
Use a Gentle Cleanser
If you have acne, it's important to use a gentle cleanser rather than one that will strip your skin of its natural oils. Using a gentle cleanser will help to prevent further irritation and inflammation. Our revision skincare line is a great place to find a gentle cleanser.
Exfoliating your skin will help remove dead skin cells and reveal the new, smooth skin underneath. Be sure to use a gentle exfoliator that won't irritate your skin. An everyday facial scrub, like our ZO Duel Action Scrub is a great way to get started on proper exfoliation. For advanced exfoliation, ZO Exfoliation Accelerator is a miracle worker. Their proprietary glycolic and lactic acid complex blend aids in the removal of dead skin cells while providing calming and soothing benefits with an aloe, green tea and chamomile finish.
Use a Moisturizer
Dryness can lead to the rough skin you are experiencing. Keeping your skin hydrated is key to preventing dryness. Be sure to use a moisturizer that suits your skin type. It is also a great idea to have a daytime moisturizer and a nighttime moisturizer as both confront different skin needs. Talk with your ClarityMD Aesthetician to find the best product for your skin type.
It seems so basic, but applying a daily sunscreen is the number one step you can take to protect your skin from aging and wrinkles.
Apply sunscreen every day, throughout the year, even if you are stepping outside for a few minutes.
But, if your basic skincare regimen just is not enough to get smooth skin, it may be time to get professional help. Our passionate team at ClarityMD is ready to help you achieve your dream skin.
Recent advancements in skincare have led to new treatments that can help to improve the appearance of your skin, such as:
Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix)
With our Sublative Rejuvenation or eMatrix, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This procedure targets redness, wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks with minimal recovery time and instant results.
Laser Genesis Rejuvenation
Our Laser Genesis technique uses laser energy to improve the appearance of veins, wrinkles, and sun damage. This is a comfortable and non-abrasive form of skincare without unwanted side effects. Laser Genesis also treats redness from skin conditions such as rosacea.
Diamond Glow offers deep exfoliation, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin. Despite being a deep exfoliation, this treatment is non-invasive, removes unwanted debris from your pores, and nourishes the skin.
After just one session, your skin will glow brighter and appear smoother and more even in tone. Dark spots, fine lines, discoloration, and wrinkles will begin to improve with multiple sessions.
The HydraFacial technique is a multi-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin using Vortex Fusion technology. This treatment works wonders on all skin types and is painless.
CoolPeel CO2 Laser
The CoolPeel CO2 laser is a new, non-invasive treatment that uses CO2 energy to improve the appearance of wrinkles and sun damage. At ClarityMD, our CoolPeel safely delivers the benefits of CO2 resurfacing through the superficial layer of skin. This process removes the damaged skin and unveils younger, healthier-looking skin with no downtime.
Subnovil Plasma Pen
The Subnovil Plasma Pen is a new, minimally invasive treatment that uses plasma energy to improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity. Only handling the ionized plasma along the surface of your skin, the Subnovil Plasma pen refines the target areas with a small shock, boosting elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid production.
Smoothly Revitalize Your Skin
Even with years of skin damage, there are several options available to help you get glowing, smooth, healthy-looking skin you have always dreamed of.
