It’s no secret that self-confidence is key to living a healthy and happy life. However, struggling with common skin problems can present a big challenge when it comes to putting your best face forward each day. From small blemishes on the face to more severe skin issues that can be present across the body, many suffering from common skin problems find them hard to look past. Fortunately, there’s no need to simply sit back and endure these conditions. The fields of modern dermatology and cosmetic services have seen incredible strides in technology and approaches to treatment over the past decade that have opened up a world of possibilities when it comes to regaining healthier, smoother, and clearer skin. At Skin & Vein, our professional team not only understands common skin conditions on an intricate level but provides a long list of solutions for treating them in a setting that’s both welcoming and comforting.

Acne

Perhaps one of the most common skin conditions that affect teenagers and adults alike is acne. Acne can be found across the body and flare-ups range from mild to severe. The vast majority of acne cases are linked back to hormonal fluctuations causing an excess of oil on the skin to block pores and lead to the development of everything from blackheads and whiteheads to small nodules or larger cysts. Keeping pores clear is key to keeping skin smooth and acne-free. At the Skin & Vein Center, we’re proud to offer a three-step solution to treating and preventing acne.

We often recommend microdermabrasion as a successful starting point to deeply exfoliate the top layer of the skin, and remove dead skin cells that keep pores clogged. This procedure is generally followed by a chemical peel to improve the texture and tone of the skin, and to keep pores clear. The inclusion of blue and red light therapy options as a final step in the treatment process not only helps heal acne scars but can kill bacteria lingering deep within the pores, leading to healthier skin in the long run.

Rosacea

Individuals in their 30s and beyond are the most likely to develop a  common skin problem known as rosacea. This chronic condition often presents on the face and includes symptoms such as reddening of the skin, raised bumps and spots that resemble common pimples. In mild cases, rosacea may be confused with a traditional sunburn that lingers. While there’s no complete cure for rosacea, there are plenty of treatment options available that can help balance skin tone and smooth out the surface. If a case of rosacea has caused small blood vessels to become visible at the surface of the skin, laser light therapy or resurfacing may be a successful option. These treatments have been shown to significantly reduce redness associated with rosacea.

Eczema

Young children and adults alike are prone to developing eczema at some point in their life. Also referred to as dermatitis, eczema is generally linked to either a genetic predisposition for the skin condition or an allergy to certain external influences. eczema can appear across the entirety of the body and usually begins as a mild rash that itches. Over time, these rashes can become more severe and are associated with flaking skin and even fluid build-up and scabbing if not treated properly. In some cases, those that suffer from eczema are more prone to also developing hay fever or asthma. In cases where eczema isn’t the result of a genetic inclination towards developing the condition, irritants are often the cause. Everything from dust, pollen, soaps, certain foods, and laundry detergents have been pointed to as potential causes for eczema.

At the Skin & Vein Center, our team takes a comprehensive approach to treating patients with eczema. After a thorough examination, we’re able to offer up recommendations ranging from natural remedies that keep patients far from potential irritants to prescription creams that can provide extensive relief for itching and redness associated with eczema.

Warts

Easily spread through casual contact, warts are a common skin problem that can develop across the body. From common warts and plantar warts to subungual warts and genital warts, individuals suffering from this skin problem often find their development to be as inconvenient as it can be a hindrance to confidence. Instead of hiding warts or trying unsuccessfully to treat them at home, consider partnering with the team at the Skin & Vein Center where we offer a full lineup of treatment options depending on the severity of the case. Whether it’s a topical medication, surgical removal, or cryotherapy, our professional team takes an all-inclusive approach to making sure warts are gone for good and our patients can head out in the world confident in the skin they’re in.
