Cosmetic Dermatology - Skin Tone and Texture


Unwanted changes in skin tone and texture result from chronic sun damage, as well as the natural aging process. Appearance changes can include skin blotches (dyschromia), such as brown spots, redness and broken blood vessels. Skin roughness and other textural changes result from dryness and the formation of scales, in addition to benign and pre-cancerous growths.

The UC Davis cosmetic dermatology service specializes in using the newest clinically-proven techniques and therapies to restore the natural tone and texture of the skin. These techniques and therapies include laser skin resurfacing, fractionated laser rejuvenation, photofacial and light source rejuvenation, chemical peels and microdermabrasion, used alone or in combination with other therapies. 

If you would like to discuss improving your skin’s tone and texture, please request a consultation to speak with our cosmetic dermatologists. Please call 916-734-6111 or 800-770-9282.
