Acne

There are different types of acne. The most common acne is the type that develops during teen years. Puberty causes hormone levels to rise, especially testosterone. High hormones signal skin glands to start making more oil (sebum). Oil releases from the pores to protect the skin and keep it moist. Acne begins when oil mixes with dead cells and clogs the skins pores. Bacteria can grow in this mixture, and if this mixture leaks into nearby tissues, it causes swelling, redness, and pus (pimples). Other causes of acne include certain medications, disorders of the endocrine system (polycystic ovary syndrome and Cushing’s syndrome). Young children and older adults can also get acne.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a relatively common, chronic skin disorder believed to affect 14 million Americans. Its classic symptoms are patchy flushing redness and inflammation particularly on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. As the condition progresses, flushing becomes more persistent and noticeable. Small, red solid bumps and pus filled pimples may appear on the skin. Rosacea is sometimes mistaken for acne itself. No one knows for sure what causes Rosacea and it’s thought to be a disorder of blood vessels that causes them to swell, leading to flushing. A genetic predisposition combined with certain environmental factors that may irritate the skin is also another theory. Rosacea may be persistent and worsen over time leading to permanent changes in appearance and affecting self-esteem. Most cases can be controlled by avoiding factors that trigger flushing such as sun exposure, spicy foods, drinking hot beverages, alcohol.

Scars

Scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process. They form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers to mend the damage. The new scar will have a different texture and quality around the tissue. Scars can be pale or purple in appearance. They may be flat or raised.

Stretch Marks (Striae)

Is also a term referring to thin, narrow grooves or channels usually in bands that are parallel or close together. Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They’re caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely. They are often a result of rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (pregnancy or muscle building). These forces on the skin overcome the dermises elasticity.

Wrinkles

Wrinkles are the result of muscle interacting with sun-damaged skin. Facial wrinkles are not formed by facial expressions, nor are wrinkles anywhere else on the body caused by habitual or repeated contractions (i.e. hands, areas above the knee, neck, chest).

Wrinkles occur because the sun inflicts damage on our skin’s collagen and elastin matrix, leaving the skin thinner, saggier, less able to retain its former, tighter contour. Exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays over time activates genes that are already in our skin to function in an abnormal way, producing damaged-looking skin.
