Aesthetic Treatments for Rough Skin Texture

We offer a range of aesthetic treatments for rough skin texture at our Glasgow clinic

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 treatments for rough skin texture, such as microdermabrasion, dermal fillers and light chemical peels.

Before considering medical microdermabrasion treatments, the most simple treatment for rough skin texture and 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, there are a number of non-surgical treatment options that can help in achieving silky smooth skin and bringing about an appearance of a younger complexion.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Rough Skin Texture:

Light Chemical Peels

A course of superficial or light chemical peels can sometimes be used to treat sun damage and dull skin by removing dead skin cells from the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) rather than the dermis (the layer beneath the top layer). A lighter chemical peel uses more dilute acid so that it does not penetrate too deeply. These have a rapid recovery, with people usually returning to work straight away.

There is normally some dry skin and peeling around days 3–5, although it is usually not significant enough to stop people from going about their normal day-to-day activities. Results are subtle after the first treatment, but over time with more treatments, the skin will have a healthy glow.

A course of 3 or 4 treatments is typically suggested — one each week. The philosophy behind this treatment is that the constant inflammation from a number of minor peels results in more collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.

Injections of Facial Filler

Dermal fillers work by relaxing muscles under the skin, which are responsible for some wrinkles and the appearance of ageing skin.

Facial fillers are typically most effective for 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.

Dermaroller

A derma roller is a rolling device that has hundreds of small needles attached to it. It is rolled over the skin a number of times, creating thousands of needle incisions in the skin.

The theory is that this stimulates a healing response and tissue remodelling in the deeper layers of the skin. This promotes the generation of healthy new cells, collagen and elastin. Smaller needles can be used by beauty therapists and doctors can use deeper needles along with local anaesthetic to create better results. This is known as microneedling.

There is normally a few days of downtime with each treatment. A course of 3 or 4 treatments is usually recommended for microneedling in Glasgow at our clinic.

Microdermabrasion

This is a beauty therapy treatment that uses fine medical-grade crystals to blast against the surface of the skin. In this way, microdermabrasion treatment creates a nice exfoliating effect on the skin, improves the overall skin condition, and can give the skin a nice glow (similar to what you would achieve from using a glycolic cleanser or facial scrub).

Microdermabrasion treatments can be used to treat a dull complexion and your skin will feel softer after just a few 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 will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for smoother-looking skin and replace dead skin cells with new cells over time and over a few treatments.
