Some redness and swelling is expected in the area for a few hours post treatment:
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin is oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples. They usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.
People with acne have a variety of lesions. The basic is the comedone, an enlarged and plugged hair follicle. If the comedone stays beneath the skin and produces a white bump, it is called a whitehead. A comedone that reaches the surface of the skin and opens up is called a blackhead because it looks black on the skin’s surface. The black discoloration is due to oxidation of the sebum as it is exposed to air. Both whiteheads and blackheads may stay in the skin for a long time.
Other troublesome acne lesions can develop, including the following:
Advance peels like salicylic peel, lactic peel or glycolic acid help drying-up of sebaceous glands and exfoliation of dead skin, thus preventing the glands from getting clogged. LASERs and radiofrequency modalities deliver energy to the dermis layer, destroying bacteria, tightening loose tissue and trigger collagen-remodeling. Thus results in a clear and healthy skin.
Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder that causes brown or gray patches to appear on the skin, primarily on the face.
It may be due to the malfunction of the melanocytes (the color-making cells) in the skin, causing them to produce too much color. As a result, people with darker skin tones are more likely to develop melasma, as they have more melanocytes than people with lighter skin. Potential triggers for melasma include:
Apart from changes in appearance, melasma does not cause any physical symptoms.
The primary symptom of melasma is the development of discolored patches of skin. While it does not cause any other physical symptoms, some people find the appearance of these patches bothersome.
The most common area for patches of melasma to appear is the face. Common locations include the upper lips, bridge of the nose, cheeks, and forehead.
Less commonly, a person may also have patches on their arms and neck.
Dark Circles often tend to age the appearance of a person more than the wrinkles or gray hair. The skin around the eye is very delicate. Various factors ranging from allergies to mental stress can easily affect this part of the skin to produce DarkCircles. Dark circles develop due to the pigmentation of skin in the orbital area. Many people believe that only ageing is the cause of dark circles.
Although Dark Circles are very common among people, the good news is that they are temporary and not a medical concern unless they are hereditary. Dark circles or black circles under the eyes are rarely caused by temporary circumstances and are more difficult to treat than bags under the eyes.
They are often the result of some combination of the following: lack of sleep, chronic stress, menstrual disorders, pregnancy, poor diet and medications. For others, dark circles are a hereditary trait. People who suffer from allergies and sensitivities often have a bigger problem with dark circles as well.
Dark circles develop due to the pigmentation of skin in the orbital area. Many people believe that only ageing is the cause of dark circles. But they are also caused due to other reasons such as:
Open pores can refer to large pores on the skin or even certain types of acne. In an effort to achieve perfect skin, many people try to get rid of their pores. Pores are a natural part of the skin donot go completely but can go away. Open pores can be a real problem for many people. They can sometimes be visible and can be unattractive. A Large pores are noticeable to the naked eye. The size is common in both oily and combination skin because of excess oil production from sebaceous glands. These glands are located beneath the skins surface. Such an openness in the pores can also increase acne problems. Blackheads, a common skin complaint, form into plugs at the opening of your pores. The term open pores can lead to misconceptions about the size of your pores. The size ultimately depends on the activity level of the sebaceous glands, and not on your beauty habits. Also, while blackheads might make your pores look bigger, the pores won't shrink if you remove the plugs.Cause of Open Pores
Most often, genetics determine who will have large pores. Other causes for large pores can be oily skin, since excess oil sits around the skins pores, making them appear enlarged. A Oily and unclean skin can also cause oils to settle around the pores, making them appear larger as the skin around them thickens.
Skin thickens from sun damage and aging as cells build up around pore openings. A Ironically, rather than hiding skin imperfections, makeup can actually cause pores to appear enlarged, especially when it’s not properly washed off. It can also settle in and around pores to highlight instead of hide them. But mostly, cosmetics can be a magnet for dirt and oils, causing large pores to, quite literally, shine.
Blackheads may not cause large pores, but they are an undesirable result of them, a result of dirt settling into large pores and given their dark color being especially easy to spot on the skin.
A mole (nevus) is a pigmented (colored) spot on the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). Moles are one thing that is common to all humans. Every person has moles, maybe 1, maybe 40. Moles are not a cause for concern unless they develop certain signs like: Itching / Increase in size / Change of colour. In fact they are considered to be a beauty spot by many, especially on the face area. Some even consider this to be a sign of good luck and prosperity.
Moles can appear anywhere on the skin. They are of different shapes and sizes. Moles are usually brown to black in colour due to pigment melanin. Sometimes moles can be skin coloured. Moles are pre-determined at birth. They develop usually in the first 20 years of life and over the years due to sun exposure they can increase in numbers and darken in colour. Moles can be round, oval, flat, or raised. They can occur singly or in clusters on any part of the body. Most moles are brown, but colors can range from pinkish flesh tones to yellow, dark blue, or black..
A wart is a hardened, bumpy, or rough piece of skin that grows faster than normal. Warts are caused by infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV). Most warts are harmless, but the virus that causes warts is contagious and can be spread by direct contact with others. Warts may develop anywhere on the body, including the bottom of the feet, palm of the hands, fingers, and genitals. Warts are typically brown or flesh-coloured, although genital warts may also appear pink or red.
A skin tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk.Skin tags are not dangerous. They are usually found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under thebreasts, or in the groin area. Skin tags appear most often in women, especially with weight gain, and in elderly people. Skin tags usually don't cause any pain. However, they can become irritated if anything, such as clothing or jewelry, rubs them.
A keloid, sometimes referred to as a keloid scar, is a tough heaped-up scar that rises quite abruptly above the rest of the skin. It usually has a smooth top and a pink or purple color.Keloids are irregularly shaped and tend to enlarge progressively. Unlike scars, keloids do not regress over time.
Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. These cells are called melanocytes, and they make the pigment that gives skin its natural color. Moles may darken after exposure to the sun, during the teen years, and during pregnancy.
Common warts are actually an infection in the top layer of skin, caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus, or HPV, family. When the virus invades this outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin - creating the wart.
Skin tags are more common among people with diabetes as well as people who are overweight or obese - conditions that often go together. The friction created by skin rubbing against skin, a side effect of being overweight, is what causes skin tags in certain people, and explains why skin tags often grow in body folds.
Freckles are small brown spots usually found on the face and arms. Freckles are extremely common and are not a health threat. They are more often seen in the summer, especially among light-skinned people and people with light or red hair. Freckles are natural and not harmful. Even though some people with freckles don't like them and want to get rid of them, they're certainly not a sign of any health problems.
Freckles are just skin cells that contain a pigment (color) called "melanin" Melanin is a chemical made by skin cells called "Melanocytes" Melanin helps to protect the skin from the Sun's harmful ultraviolet rays by reflecting or absorbing them. Freckles are triggered by exposure to sunlight.
Sunspots are spots on the skin that are darker than your natural skin tone. Essentially, sunspots are skin damage caused by exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The sunspots usually appear in areas regularly exposed to sunlight like the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. Sunspots (also known as liver spots) are those little dark spots that can often be mistaken for freckles.
Stretch marks are a common problem faced by both men and women. They can appear post weight loss/gain and are often suffered by women post pregnancy. Some skin types are more susceptible to stretch marks than others and for some patients the marks can be quite noticeable. However the latest technologies available offer a ray of hope.Cause of Stretch Marks
The skin is the body's largest organ and has the remarkable ability to expand and contract as needed. The skin is strong and elastic, but its supporting tissues can be damaged if they are stretched too far or too quickly. Stretch marks were considered to be the most difficult to treat skin problem.
Tanning is a common skin problem that all individuals face and think that they have to live with it especially if they reside in tropical regions of the world. However, this is not true, and there are options to help remove the pigmentation issues you face with ease. Go ahead and read the article to find out safe and effective methods to ban the tan.What Is Tanning?
Tanning is the process of an increase in the skin pigment called melanin due to sun exposure. While tanning can also be a result of artificial skin tanning services, through the use of a tanning lamp found in tanning beds, the major cause of tanning is excessive exposure to sunlight. It causes the darkening of the skin on exposed areas majorly on the face, arms, hands, legs, feet, back, and neck.
The solar spectrum consists of several wavelengths of which ultraviolet radiation is important to cause skin effects. UV radiation has three wavelengths UVA, UVB and UVC. UVB rays burn the skin while UVA rays darken the skin and cause photo ageing. When UVA rays penetrate the layers of the skin, they stimulate the melanocytes to produce excess melanin, which further darkens due to oxidation and causes tanning. They also cause damage to collagen.
