As we age, environmental factors and sun damage along with genetics and the natural aging process will begin to show their effects on our skin. From uneven texture to enlarged pores, the effects of aging are different for everyone. But uneven skin and enlarged pores are two of the main reasons we look older than we feel. There are many factors that contribute to uneven texture including hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, hormonal shifts, and many other conditions. Fortunately, Nashville Skin’s team of dermatologists and skincare specialists will determine the cause of your uneven texture and create an individualized cosmetic dermatology treatment plan to restore your skin and help you put your best face forward.
What Causes Enlarged Pores and Uneven Skin Tone?
Irregular texture and color most often happen as a result of sun damage, inflammation or injuries. Uneven texture can appear as:
- Sun spots
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Poor texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
Enlarged pores are often the main culprit behind uneven texture and may even highlight lines and wrinkles. Pores are the openings of hair follicles and each one contains a sebaceous gland, which produces your skin’s oils. Some people are born with large pores, while others notice their pores enlarge as they age. Pores can be enlarged when dirt, oil, and/or debris becomes trapped. Also, both acne and sun damage can cause the pores to appear larger and more noticeable.
While, it’s possible for pores to become enlarged anywhere on the body, most often it’s the noticeable pores on the face that are the most problematic. The face is more likely to experience changes in texture because it is exposed to more dirt and sebum collection in the skin, which causes the pores to swell and become more visible. Enlarged pores require maintenance and proper treatment to help reduce their appearance and improve texture.
At Nashville Skin, our practitioners are experts in advanced non-invasive techniques to help restore your skin texture and tone. Our treatments give you faster, longer-lasting results without the need for more invasive treatments that require more downtime and can take days or even weeks to show results.
How to Get Even Skin and Shrink Pores
Uneven skin tone and enlarged pores are difficult to improve with skin care products alone. At Nashville Skin, our team gets amazing results using a combination of ground-breaking, non-invasive treatments that, when used together, result in firmer, refreshed skin with even texture and tone.
Treatments for Uneven Texture & Pores
Laser resurfacing is a cutting-edge treatment that can shrink your pores, improve texture, tone, and rejuvenate your appearance. Not only that, but laser treatments can help stimulate an increase in collagen production, which results in healthy, plumper, brighter-looking skin.
Laser treatments can undo years of damage to your skin by targeting the following:
- Fine lines or wrinkles
- Brown spots, redness or discoloration for more balanced skin tone
- Tighten skin and encourage collagen production
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Poor texture
At Nashville Skin, we use a variety of peels to address a number of irregularities and changes in skin texture, tone, and color. Chemical peels are the perfect cosmetic treatment for patients looking for a non-invasive treatment with little to no downtime that can restore their glow and radiance.
A unique fractional technology that offers exceptional results. The treatment creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin, producing collagen and elastin as well as allowing topical creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively. Microneedling reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, pore size and improves skin tone and texture.
