Little bumps on our faces can be a real annoyance. Skin conditions can make us worry about our appearance and our health. Thankfully, they’re now easier than ever to diagnose and deal with. Here are a few of the most common bumps and spots you may notice.
Three common skin conditions you may encounter throughout your life are acne, blackheads and milia. Let’s take a look at what they are and how to get rid of them. Three examples for treating skin conditions:
These small white cysts are usually found near the eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks and eyelids. They’re harmless, other than causing worry over how they look. If you notice milia on your face, chances are your GP won’t remove them; in the UK, such skin conditions are usually deemed cosmetic.
Milia are formed when dead cells clump together and get trapped under the skin’s surface.
The easiest way to get rid of milia is with the Thermavein system. where a high frequency current passes through a thin needle which touches the external source of the Milia and destroys it. It’s painless, quick, highly effective and there’s no scarring or noticeable pigment change after treatment.
Acne is caused when pores get blocked by a combination of natural body oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. They flare up into painful, pus-filled lumps. Chronic acne is a skin condition that can cause lasting damage and even permanent scars.
To really treat acne properly and conclusively, it’s important to understand the underlying causes and any applicable health and lifestyle factors. Both lasers, which can lead to scarring and topical advertised creams only deal with the problem on the outside and prescription tablets can be detrimental to your health. At BeauSynergy in Hertfordshire we get to the core of the problem by treating the acne from inside inside the skin using the bodies own chemistry. Treatments are based on your skin type and the severity of your acne. The BeauSynergy skin care professionals will help you develop an effective treatment plan and home care routine.
Treatments for skin conditions like acne may include Danne DMK enzymes to nourish and rejuvenate. It may be decided, if there is more scarring than cystic acne, that you have some Dermaroller (micro-needling) sessions to stimulate collagen production and help your skin regenerate naturally.
It is quite likely that you would be encouraged to have LED light therapy in combination with any of the acne treatments in order to energize cell function, encourage collagen production, which then strengthens the skin, improves texture, hydrates and helps reduce pore size.
When debris gets trapped under the skin and clogs hair follicles, they can appear as blackheads. They can also occur due to hormonal changes or as a side effect of taking certain medications.
One of the most effective ways for treating skin conditions such as blackheads is to have facials which cleanse and exfoliate which in turn draws out the dirt blocking the pores. Depending on the amount of blackheads present and the overall skin health in general, you may be offered a skin / chemical peel and mask. Finally, to maintain clear skin you may benefit from take-home treatments that help to unclog and dry up your oily open pores.
