Acne and Scarring
It’s common for people of all ages to struggle with acne. Acne is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles get clogged with oil or dead skin cells. Untreated, acne can lead to scarring in the form of dark spots or lesions.
Age spots, also known as liver spots or sola lentigines, are dark spots on your skin. They can range in size and commonly form on hands, face, shoulders, and arms. They’re common in adults over 50, but can appear for anyone of any age, particular those who spend a lot of time in the sun.
True age spots are harmless but can be treated cosmetically to be lightened or removed. However, all spots should be examined by a dermatologist to rule out the possibility of cancerous growth.
Also known as red moles, cherry angiomas are common skin growths that appear just about anywhere on your body. Usually found on adults 30 years or older, they generally do not pose a medical concern unless they bleed or change shape, size, or color. In that case, it’s important to speak to your doctor immediately.
A double chin is fat that is stored under your chin. They can form due to factors like weight gain, aging, or genetics.
Also known as solar elastosis, dull skin is thick, yellow, rough, and coarsely wrinkled skin formed due to a combination of aging and chronic sun damage.
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is commonly experienced under the arms, hands, and feet.
Facial Volume Loss
Skin can begin to look gaunt when subdermal fat decreases, which is very common in aging. It’s a completely normal occurrence and can be reversed or mitigated a number of different ways.
The skin in our hands is one of the first and most readily apparent sign of aging. While we care for faces and bodies, let’s not forget about these hard-working parts of ourselves.
Skin laxity, descendent cheek fat pad, a prominent masseter (jaw muscle), or a receded chin can all lead to soft jaw line. Today’s cosmetic treatments offer a number of non-surgical solutions.
A number of causes can lead to the appearance of large pores: increased oil production, loss of skin elasticity, increase in skin tension, and increases in hair follicle sizes can all contribute.
Melasma appears as brown/grey patches on the face. They are most commonly caused by UV radiation, hormones, and genetics.
Milia is a common skin condition that presents as small, superficial, and stubborn white bumps on the skin.
Neck Bands and Rings
The aging process causes the anterior neck muscle — the platysma — to tighten, causing the formation of prominent neck bands.
Broken blood vessels, red bumps, and persistent flushing are the most common symptoms of rosacea. We have a number of effective treatments and topical medications to reduce the appearance of rosacea.
Skin elasticity increases with age, causing the skin to sag with time. There are many treatment options available to effectively bring the “spring” back to your skin.
Tan or brown skin growths, seborrheic keratosis are benign lesions that have the appearance being stuck to the skin.
Skin tags are soft growths that hang off the skin. They happen most often along creases, such as under the arms or around the neck.
As skin becomes thinner with age, wrinkles begin to form easier and easier. To slow this process down, we have a number of effective topical products. To reverse the appearance of wrinkles all together, we have cosmetic procedures.
