Rough Skin Texture Treatments


Microdermabrasion Glasgow

Rough skin is often associated with sun damage, but it can also be associated with natural changes in the skin after menopause when the drop in oestrogen levels results in thinning of the skin. Fortunately, there are various effective non-surgical treatments for rough skin texture, such as microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and laser resurfacing.

Dr Darren McKeown offers cutting edge treatments for rough skin texture in Glasgow.

Rough Skin Treatments


Microdermabrasion is a beauty therapy treatment that uses fine medical-grade crystals to blast against the surface of the skin, removing the outermost layers. The tiny crystals in the microdermabrasion treatment create a nice exfoliating effect on the skin and enhance the overall skin condition by improving the circulation of blood and nutrients in the treated area.

Treatments using microdermabrasion can hydrate the skin and give it a nice glow (similar to what you would achieve from using a glycolic cleanser or facial exfoliation scrub). Microdermabrasion treatments can also be used to treat a dull complexion, blackheads, and pigmentation issues such as uneven skin tone.

The combined effects of stimulating collagen production, removing dead skin cells from the outermost layers of skin, and exfoliation of the skin’s surface means your skin will feel softer after just a few microdermabrasion treatments.

When done at home, this is a very superficial technique with limited results, although the benefits still surpass the likes of moisturising creams. A medical microdermabrasion treatment performed by a professional with medical-grade crystals at a specialist microdermabrasion clinic, on the other hand, will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for smoother-looking skin and replace dead skin cells with healthy new cells over time and over a few treatments.

Although microdermabrasion was once a popular way to treat rough skin texture, it has been falling out of favour as people opt for newer, more advanced alternative treatments.

for Rough Skin Texture

Microdermabrasion Glasgow

Many people choose medical grade microdermabrasion to treat rough, dull skin because it can effectively rejuvenate the skin without the need for surgery. However, cutting-edge advances in aesthetic medicine have introduced new aesthetic treatments for rough skin texture that are excellent alternatives to microdermabrasion, including BBL & HALO laser skin treatments and dermal fillers.

However, before considering these options or traditional medical microdermabrasion treatments, the most simple treatment for rough skin texture, dry skin, or tired skin is moisturiser. These products are usually made according to the different skin types, so you may need to work your way through a few different brands before you find one that really works with your skin type.

For most people, this will be effective. But in situations where these simple measures don’t work, the non-surgical rough skin texture treatment options mentioned above can help in achieving silky smooth skin and bringing about an appearance of a more even and younger complexion.

Dr Darren McKeown offers cutting-edge aesthetic treatments for rough skin texture at his Glasgow clinic, McKeown Medical. These treatments include:

Injections of Facial Filler

Dermal fillers work by relaxing the muscles under the skin that are responsible for some wrinkles and the appearance of ageing skin. Filler is injected into the dermis, the layer of skin between the epidermis (top layer) and hypodermis (bottom layer).

Facial fillers are typically most effective for fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face area, such as on the forehead and around the eye area. Facial filler injections can give your skin a more youthful and healthy appearance without the need for surgery by stimulating collagen production.

BroadBand Light (BBL) Treatment

You may be considering a microdermabrasion facial in Glasgow, but an alternative treatment that has more impactful results is the BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment. Dr Darren McKeown uses the Sciton BBL device, which uses an advanced version of intense pulsed light with different wavelength filters to even out skin tone and give the face a smoother overall texture.

BBL treatments are typically less painful than other types of laser skin treatments because they allow for precise control over the light energy used during each session. There is also virtually no downtime with this laser treatment — any redness usually diminishes within a few hours.

HALO Laser Treatment

When it comes to smoothing out rough textures on the facial skin, Sciton’s HALO laser resurfacing technology is a promising alternative to skin microdermabrasion.

The HALO device combines ablative and non-ablative laser technologies to target the deep layer and outermost layer of the skin and stimulate regeneration of healthy new cells. By removing dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth, this powerful hybrid fractional laser can address various skin concerns on all skin types in a single appointment.

The benefits of a HALO treatment include impressive, long-lasting results with minimal downtime (5–7 days). You can expect some redness and swelling during the recovery period before a more youthful, smoother appearance is revealed through the healing process.

For microdermabrasion to work, a course of treatments is required before impactful results are seen, but with the Sciton device, dramatic results can be achieved within your first treatment.

A HALO laser treatment should be combined with a BBL treatment for optimal results.

Book your appointment with Dr Darren McKeown at McKeown Medical for a BBL & HALO laser treatment using advanced laser technology.
