Brown or dark spots on the skin, age spots and uneven skin tone can be caused by prolonged sun exposure, hormonal factors or acne damage. Sun exposure causes the skin to produce too much melanin where the pigment clumps together creating the appearance of brown spots or freckles. In some cases, dark spots are caused by a root problem, such as Melasma. Unsightly brown spots add ten years to your appearance. Lucky for you brown spots are easy to remove and our skin specialists can show you how!
Anyone can get dry skin. However, as we age, hormone and growth factors decline and the rate at which the skin renews and repairs itself becomes much slower. The loss of hormones causes a decline in the synthesis of collagen, elastin and other components reducing the production of sebum (skin oil) and thus leading to skin thinning, dryness and other negative changes. If the dead cells are not removed skin tends to look chalky and dull. This is where we can help! Simple Radiance Medspa offers services for beginners and more advanced treatments to make dry dull skin radiant again.
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. Acne appears when a pore in our skin clogs. Normally, dead skin cells rise to surface of the pore, and the body sheds the cells. When the body starts to make lots of sebum (see-bum), oil that keeps our skin from drying out, the dead skin cells can stick together inside the pore. Sometimes bacteria that live on our skin, p. acnes, also get inside the clogged pore causing the acne. Many effective treatments are available to help with the exfoliation of dead cells and purification of the skin to reduce or eliminate acne. Acne scarring is frustrating! As with acne, acne scarring such as dark spots or depressions in the skin can easily be addressed by our skin specialists.
Rosacea a common skin disease, often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people. The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin. It can resemble acne in some people and broken blood vessels in others. There are many possible causes for rosacea some of which include; genetics, bacteria and skin mites. Women are more likely to get Rosacea but not as likely as men to get severe Rosacea. At Simple Radiance Medspa, we offer treatments to combat Rosacea by calming the skin and eliminating visible blood vessels.
Leg veins tend to be inherited! Sometimes leg veins become more prominent after pregnancy and/or with age. Unwanted blood vessels (broken capillaries) on the face are common in people with acne or rosacea, but can be found on all types of skin. As with the legs, genetics are a factor with broken capillaries as well as medicines such as prednisone and other corticosteroids which dilate capillaries. Sun exposure accelerates and exacerbates unsightly veins and blood vessels.
