Treat redness, rosacea and acne with one of our signature treatments.
Redness, rosacea, and acne are common but treatable skin conditions. We offer a variety of treatment options for these common skin conditions.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes blushing or flushing and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, other skin problems or natural ruddiness.
Rosacea can affect anyone. While there's no cure for rosacea, treatment can control and reduce the signs and symptoms.
There are a few different reasons why a patient might be dealing with discoloration and redness of the skin. Skin redness and pigmentation problems may be caused by:
Once patients understand what is causing their concerns, they can then work with a professional to relieve the skin and improve texture and tone.
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.
Effective acne treatments are available, but acne can be persistent. The pimples and bumps heal slowly, and when one begins to go away, others seem to crop up.
Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and scar the skin. The earlier you start treatment, the lower your risk of such problems.
Acne signs vary depending on the severity of your condition:
Acne usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
The sebaceous glands produce oil (sebum) which normally travels via hair follicles to the skin surface. However, skin cells can plug the follicles, blocking the oil coming from the sebaceous glands. When follicles become plugged, skin bacteria (called Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes) begin to grow inside the follicles, causing inflammation. Acne progresses in the following manner:
Eventually, the plugged follicle bursts, spilling oil, skin cells, and the bacteria onto the skin surface. In turn, the skin becomes irritated and pimples or lesions begin to develop. The basic acne lesion is called a comedo.
Acne can be superficial (pimples without abscesses) or deep (when the inflamed pimples push down into the skin, causing pus-filled cysts that rupture and result in larger abscesses).
Rising hormone levels during puberty may cause acne. In addition, acne is often inherited. Other causes of acne may include the following:
Acne can be aggravated by squeezing the pimples or by scrubbing the skin too hard.
