Do you oily skin and notice that your skin’s texture is less than smooth? Or maybe you have Rosacea and the repeated flares of inflammation have made your skin look rough and bumpy with enlarged pores.  Many in our industry refer to these changes as “orange peel” skin. No matter how good your skin is, we all notice some textural changes and enlarged pores as we age because of sun exposure.

Many salons, estheticians and medical practitioners will tell you that “orange peel” skin can be treated effectively with microdermabrasion, chemical peels or special skin care products. Because many of these textural changes in the skin stem from the loss of collagen, the treatment options that work best must stimulate it. The only one that does this effectively is class IV medical laser treatments like the laser resurfacing.

This type of laser treatment can reach the deeper layers of skin (the dermis) and trigger your body to make more collagen. This will tighten and firm your skin. Your skin will look smoother and your pores will be smaller. We have found that by combining these types of laser treatments with good, medical grade skin care products, most patients see good, lasting improvement!

Don’t fall for catchy advertising or other gimmicks. While microdermabrasion and peels can produce some result when used correctly, they can only go so far. They don’t have the ability to reach the deeper dermal layers where collagen is produced and stored to give lasting and impressive changes in “orange peel” skin.
