Acne can be caused by multiple pathways, both internal and external. Internally, through a combination of excess oil production and inflammation, the pores become clogged and produce what is called a pustule or a ‘zit.’ In more severe cases, the inflammation can cause deep painful pockets or cysts. Open comedones, or blackheads, are caused by an over production of oil in the pore, which combines with environmental toxins that are exposed to oxygen, causing the ‘black’ appearance in the pore. Many of these painful and embarrassing breakouts can be addressed and removed with professional treatments and topical products. Acne scarring can result from past breakouts, too much inflammation developing in the area, and improper removal of breakouts. Scarring can be difficult to remove at home, but there are many different professional solutions to this. Schedule a free consultation today to learn the best way to address your acne concerns.
As the cells in the body begin to age, they decrease in the speed of their production, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Many other factors can contribute to this, with sun exposure being the number one culprit for aging skin, along with slowing metabolism, and lifestyle choices such as improper nutrition, poor water intake, and smoking. Making changes in overall lifestyle such as proper sun protection, good nutrition, and exercise can slow down the aging process of the cells, but proper professional and home care are needed support the health of the skin cells. Many treatments can even reverse the signs of aging. Professional Treatments can vary from Dermapen treatments, Chemical peels, or even regular maintenance with Microdermabrasion or Facials. Use of Vitamin C, Retinoid products, and Sunscreen on a regular basis will support the overall health of the skin, keeping many of the signs of aging at bay. Incorporating these into a regular routine with other good skin habits to support skin health will keep your skin looking young and vibrant for years to come. Because everyone’s aging process is different, it is recommended you consult with your Skin Care Professional to customize the best treatment plan for you.
Redness / Rosacea
Redness in the skin can be caused by many factors, including sensitivity, dryness, environmental factors and genetic factors. Many of these are also tied to excess inflammation in the body. Visible Capillaries or Telangiectasia can appear on the cheeks, around the nose and chin with thinning skin, age or stressors to the skin. Rosacea is a medical condition that is characterized by chronic redness in the cheeks, nose and chin, and is generally accompanied by large pores, and/or breakouts. Whether you are suffering from excess redness in the skin, or have been diagnosed with Rosacea, the skilled team at Rejuv Medical can help you with professional treatments, and give you guidance on how to maintain your un-flushed skin at home.
Pigmentation / Sun Spots / Age Spots
Pigmentation, or sun spots are caused by over exposure to the sun, or trauma to the skin in the past. The Melanocytes, or cells that produce pigment in the skin, begin to over produce, or under produce, causing hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. Proper sun protection is the best way to prevent pigmentation disorders in the skin. An SPF of 30 or above is recommended at all times when outdoors (even when it’s cloudy—the rays that do damage to the skin are still just as harmful on dreary days as sunny), and reapplication is recommended every 2 hours when outdoors. The overall appearance of the skin can be improved significantly by blurring or removing these excess pockets of pigmentation. Several in-office procedures can be performed to remove the pigment. When done in combination with topical products that are applied at home, we can maintain the evenness in the tone, and prevent new pigmentation from forming.
Dry skin and dehydrated skin are often times confused for one another. Dry skin is lacking of oil, whereas dehydrated skin is lacking of water. Generally, when we see someone who describes their skin as dry, it is truly dehydrated. So you drink a lot of water? That doesn’t always reflect in the overall hydration of skin. Moisture on the surface of the skin can be depleted by environmental factors, skin care products that are too harsh and strip the skin’s moisture barrier, or can be affected by medications and diet. Both Dry and Dehydrated skins can be helped by both professional care and at home follow up.
Oily skin is an over production of sebum, the skin’s naturally occurring oil. Oily skin is typically accompanied by large pores, and a tendency to break out. Keeping the pores clean, and using products to regulate the production are just the beginning to less oil. There are several professional treatments that can help to decrease the over production of sebum in the skin.
Sensitive skin can be caused by different medical conditions, overuse or misuse of incorrect skin care products, excessive exposure to harsh conditions, or allergic skin reactions. Sensitivity in the skin can be characterized by a very tight, dry, red appearance, along with warmth and burning during application of topical products. Ingredient sensitivity can also make matters worse. Sensitive skin is generally accompanied by other skin conditions such as dryness, acne, or aging. No matter the category you fall into, there are many solutions to this painful and uncomfortable condition.
