Feeling rough? How to improve skin texture

Is your skin starting to feel like sandpaper? You may be suffering from a build-up of dead skin cells. 

The outer most layer of our skin is composed of dead skin cells that are cemented together to form a protective layer over the living skin cells below to shield them from damage and natural elements.  

However, often this layer can build up to give a rough and bumpy texture that can make your skin appear uneven and affect overall smoothness. This generally occurs when the skin isn’t properly cleansed or exfoliated. 

In addition to a rough texture, a build-up of dead skin cells can also contribute to breakouts and enlarged pores. It can also affect your skin’s tone, often making it appear dull and lifeless.  

Luckily, removing this build-up isn’t too difficult. At Artisan, we offer a range of treatments to remove dead skin cells and resurface the skin to stimulate new cell regeneration and increase collagen production, leaving your skin smoother, tighter, clearer and glowing. 

Here are our most effective treatments for resurfacing your skin:  

Microdermabrasion  

Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device to exfoliate and remove the top layer of your skin, revealing an immediately smoother and softer complexion. The procedure, although abrasive, is painless and works to clear pores, remove debris, stimulates blood flow and encourages collagen generation to firm and tone the skin. Microdermabrasion also allows for increased absorption of skincare products and can also help with enlarged pores, fine lines, post-acne marks, uneven texture and dry skin.  

HydraFacial MD™

This four-step treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hydration while infusing the skin with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, peptides and other essential nutrients via a special patented Vortex-Fusion™ tip. It works to repair sun damage, clear congestion, shrink enlarged pores, even out skin tone and fight the signs of ageing. Like microdermabrasion, HydraFacial MD™ is a gentle, non-invasive facial treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin while resurfacing the skin for a clearer, healthier and more vibrant complexion.

Dermapen™ Skin Needling  

Dermapen™ is an innovative, non-invasive skin needling treatment that restores and rejuvenates the skin. It works to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, tighten and improve elasticity, shrink enlarged pores, minimise scarring and repair pigmentation, and sun damaged and ageing skin for an all-round healthier looking complexion. Dermapen™ uses a handheld device and works by penetrating the top layers of the skin with micro-needles that create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin formation that reduces wrinkles, scarring and other imperfections, while improving skin texture and tone.  

Clear + Brilliant®  

Clear + Brilliant® is a laser treatment that delivers a pattern of fractional resurfacing to the skin. The laser energy creates minor damage deep below the surface of the skin. Damaged skin cells are then replaced naturally by healthier cells ridding all impurities and improving the skin from the inside out. This treatment is a perfect alternative to the more intense Fraxel® treatment but an advancement from Microdermabrasion and Dermapen™ skin needling. Clear + Brilliant® helps to fight the natural effects of ageing, improves skin tone and texture, and shrinks pores!

Fraxel®

Fraxel® Dual Laser (Fraxel®) is a non-ablative fractionated laser that is used to significantly rejuvenate skin. It is an incredibly effective treatment for wrinkles, acne scars, pigmented lesions, and for improving overall skin tone and texture. Fraxel® works by penetrating the top layers of your skin a fraction at a time via hundreds of thousands of microscopic columns that stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. By leaving most of the surrounding skin intact, your skin’s natural rejuvenation process kicks in, smoothing wrinkles and scars, eliminating pigmentation and creating cleaner, healthier skin. The treatment produces highly effective and long-lasting results.
