Most people find that their complexion is less than perfect while staring into a mirror each morning. Acne, hyperpigmentation, and other common facial skin concerns are more common than one might think, and you’re not alone in searching for effective treatments that actually work.

Here’s a list of the most common facial skin conditions, most specifically relating to the face and how each one can be effectively treated.

Facial Skin Conditions Occur For a Variety of Reasons

One or more skin disorders will likely affect your face throughout your life – whether it’s acne as a teenager or sun damage as you grow older. Facial skin problems occur for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Viral, bacterial, or fungal infections
  • Exposure to the sun or other environmental elements

Hyperpigmentation

Skin hyperpigmentation describes spots or patches of skin that are darker than your natural skin tone. People of any skin color can experience hyperpigmentation; however, it’s especially common in those with darker skin tones. Hyperpigmentation is a result of pigment-producing cells called melanocytes producing too much pigmentation, called melanin. The excess melanin is deposited into the skin, creating dark spots and patches. While hyperpigmentation is mainly a cosmetic issue, in some cases, it may be a sign of an underlying medical condition.

Hyperpigmentation Treatments

The best hyperpigmentation treatment depends on factors individual to you, including your skin, your treatment goals, your budget, and the extent of the damage. A wide variety of treatment options will improve hyperpigmentation, some of the more comprehensive than others. We recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation to learn more about what we recommend.

Melasma

Those suffering from melasma develop brown or gray patches on their face, usually on the parts exposed most to the sun. The most susceptible areas include the forehead, cheeks, bridge of the nose, chin, and above the upper lip. Melasma is more common in women than men. While causes are unknown, sun exposure and hormone fluctuations are thought to be the major contributors.

Melasma Treatments

Fortunately, various non-invasive professional treatments will make a noticeable improvement to your melasma. Laser skin resurfacing, IPL treatments, and chemical peels each take a slightly different approach to clear brown spots, and we’ll help you discover which option is ideal for you.

Rosacea

While redness can be caused by irritants, sun exposure, insect bites, or countless medical conditions, it can also be a symptom of rosacea. This condition affects an estimated 14 million Americans and is most common in middle-aged women with fair skin. It can be acute or chronic, disappearing and reappearing over time and changing in intensity. If left untreated, rosacea can worsen over time, with new flare-ups becoming more intense.

Rosacea Treatments

If you find your complexion marred by redness or red spots, non-invasive treatments will help to even your skin tone and reduce overall redness and discoloration. Treatment options like laser skin resurfacing, Laser Genesis, IPL Photofacial treatments, and chemical peels will help minimize redness and improve skin tone and texture.

Acne Scars

Acne is most often associated with teenagers; however, people of all ages can struggle with stubborn breakouts and acne scars. If you’re well into your twenties or thirties and suffer from whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, or excessively oily skin, it’s highly likely that you also struggle with acne.

Acne Scar Treatments

Several treatments are available for successfully treating acne, but it’s critical to find the ideal treatment that works for you. A consultation with a reputable provider is a great place to start when looking for solutions to acne-related skin issues.
