Common Skin Problems

Acne, redness, and scaring are three of the most common skin problems that people face. Although these issues are typically mild and not overtly harmful to the skin, they can alter your appearance and, in return, your confidence. We believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin, so we offer numerous services to help them win back that confidence in themselves. The appearance of each of these skin conditions varies for each person. In this blog, we break down the causes and treatments for acne, skin redness, and facial scar. 

Acne

Face acne is one of the most common skin issues people face as it’s the eighth-most common disease worldwide. Acne occurs when dead skin cells and oil clog hair follicles. Factors such as genetics, diet, stress, and hormones all play a part in determining your acne’s condition. It can easily be treated with lifestyle changes, medication, or a proper skin-care regime. However, in some more extreme cases, a procedure is required to help eliminate acne. Our practice offers numerous treatments and skin-care products which work to clear and rejuvenate the skin and reduce blemishes. Procedures include skin peels, light therapy, pore cleansing, and various laser treatments. 

Redness of Skin

Another prevalent skin condition is redness of the skin. A lot of different factors can trigger skin redness. Common reasons include allergic reactions, burns, dry skin, acne, and other irritations. While many of these causes are temporary and will disappear over time, some may require medical treatment. Long-term skin redness could be linked to conditions such as Seborrheic Dermatitis or Rosacea. In these cases, it’s best to seek out a professional to receive proper care. Treatments for skin redness can include skin-care medications and products as well as procedures depending on the condition’s factors.

Scars

The presence of scars on the skin is a natural part of the healing process from an injury. While some fade away over time, deeper and more severe scars can remain permanent. Causes of scars can include burns, injuries, acne, or surgeries, and they may appear in various forms such as Keloid, Contracture, Hypertrophic, and acne scars. The different appearances of these scar types include tightened skin, raised skin, redness, and deep pits. Facial scars are the most difficult to heal. This is because your face is continually exposed to its surrounding environment. At Modern Dermatology & Aesthetics, we offer laser treatments that diminish scars’ appearances from the skin. Procedures vary based on the severity of the scar and placement on the skin.
