A patient asked 5 years ago
I have texture in my skin that I am not a fan of. I’m an esthetician so I take care of my skin with antioxidants, semi-regular use of retinol products, crazy amounts of spf, and occasional microderms and microneedling. I am currently a little overweight. I’m not ready for a CO2 laser, and I’d rather not lose my freckles. What do I need to be doing/using?

Treatments to Improve Skin Texture

Hi and thank you for your question! Fractional CO2 laser is my first choice to improve the skin texture, but since you indicated that you are not ready for CO2 laser, my 2ns choice is microneedling (which can be done with various serums or PRP). In general microneedling achieves results similar to Fractional CO2 laser but at a lower level with less down-time and for patients who do not want to try fractional CO2 laser, it is often a good substitute. I hope it helps and good luck!
