Skin irregularities are a result of various factors. For instance, exposure to the sun, skin disorders, ageing, and genetics.
Moreover, the irregularities may be textural or pigmentation related.
For instance, textural irregularities are wrinkles and acne scars.
Skin rejuvenation can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also treats the irregularities of the face - such as wrinkles or fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Skin rejuvenation also treats the effects of pigmentation, like sun and age spots. These treatments improve the appearance of acne scars as well. Dermatologists assess the patient's skin and overall health. Based on that, they recommend the appropriate treatment.
To achieve best results, most skin rejuvenation treatments require multiple sessions. The patient must take appropriate aftercare and protect their skin for long-lasting results.

Darkened patches of skin like freckles, spots caused mainly by sun exposure.
Atrophic, hypertrophic and boxcar scars that are caused by acne or injuries
Lesions that look like small blood blisters, a constant facial redness and visible blood vessels on the surface of the skin.
Loss of skin tone:
The development of cellulite or loss of firmness that is caused due to the weakening of the supportive collagen and elastin fibres.
Skin that has a buildup of dead skin cells and clogged pores and lost its glow.
Treatments are available for all types of skin irregularities. In fact, dermatologists personalise the treatments depending on the patient’s skin type & severity of the issue.
Some of the treatment modalities are:
In this treatment, a specialised instrument is used to remove the upper layer of the skin. In fact, this helps in reducing deep acne scars and superficial pigmentation, resulting in smoother and more evenly toned skin.
In this treatment, micro-crystals are sprayed over the skin which exfoliates the dead skin cells and debris. Moreover, dermatologists may combine this treatment with brightening or anti-ageing serums. In fact, this gives long-lasting results. Microdermabrasion can improve the penetration of chemical peels. This is a non-invasive procedure.
In this treatment, brightening agents like glutathione, hydrating agents, vitamins and minerals are combined with micropuncture techniques. Dermatologists inject these ingredients into the skin. Moreover, dermatologists also combine this treatment with other treatments to rejuvenate skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy: In this treatment, processed blood plasma that is rich in platelets & growth nutrients are used with microneedling to treat fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, dermatologists combine PRP therapy with laser therapy as well. Platelets are a reservoir of growth factors that stimulate tissue recovery by increasing blood flow and cytokines.
In this treatment, peels of acids like glycolic or salicylic are used to remove the upper layers of the skin. This results in the improved appearance of fine lines and discolouration.
In this treatment, lasers, intense pulsed light or photodynamic therapy are used to treat skin conditions. This removes the effects of photoaging such as wrinkles and spots. Fractional lasers help lighten scars and superficial fine lines.
In this treatment, oxygen and saline is used to clean the skin, exfoliate it and boost lymphatic drainage. In fact, this treatment reaches the deeper layers of the skin and makes it soft and glowing.
In this treatment, gels are injected into the skin. This smoothens wrinkles, lines and folds. It can also fill up scars and pits or depressions on the skin surface. They also help to lift eyebrows, fill the temples and the cheeks.
Treatment for skin rejuvenation are based on the patient’s requirements. Moreover, the dermatologist performs the treatment over multiple sessions. READ MORE
