Skin Texture Improvement and Brightening Q & A

What causes uneven skin texture?

Uneven skin tone and texture happens when your pores become clogged with dead skin cells that aren’t shedding. Texture can turn into acne with the presence of sebum, dirt, and bacteria that become trapped in your pores.

You can also develop texture due to dehydration, chronically dry skin, aging, and excessive sun exposure.

What is acne?

Acne affects over 85% of teenagers, but adults can also get it. 

Acne develops when your hair follicles become clogged by dirt, dead cells, and sebum, which is oil your body makes to lubricate your skin. If there is too much sebum, your pores become clogged, and the bacteria trapped in the clog begin to multiply. This irritates your skin, causing swelling and redness, and often your body creates pus as a reaction to the infection of bacteria. All of this results in a pimple.

Hormones like high levels of androgens can also be the culprit for acne.

How can I improve my skin texture?

The countless number of products on the market is overwhelming, and they’re often not as effective as professional treatments. The team at Annandale Skin & Anti Aging offers a range of options to help even out your texture and brighten your skin:


During facials, your aesthetician will cleanse and exfoliate your skin before physically extracting the excess sebum from your pores. 

Every treatment, as well as the products used, is tailored to your specific skin care needs. The practice uses a range of science-based products that deliver noticeable results. These include SkinCeuticals®, Revision Skincare®, and iS Clinical® skin care products. 


The practice offers  diamond peel exfoliation treatments that use a diamond-tipped wand to polish your skin’s surface, remove dead cells, and vacuum any debris. This exfoliation system works to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and reveal new, healthier skin, with no risk of damage to your skin.

Laser treatments

Laser and light therapy work by using concentrated beams of light to penetrate below the surface of your skin and target the bacteria causing your acne. Laser therapy is also a very effective antiaging treatment that leaves you with radiant, smooth and healthy looking skin.

The practice combines laser treatments and diamond exfoliation to provide a customized treatment that addresses your specific needs. The combined treatments leave your skin with better, more even texture, tone, and color; smaller-sized pores; reduced acne scars; and fewer fine lines.
