It seems that women take their skin — especially their facial skin — far more seriously than most men. Often, they seek out solutions, remedies and therapies to ensure that they have the healthiest skin possible.
There are three common skin problems that just about all women can face at one time or another during their lifetimes. Fortunately, there are many remedies and solutions to combat these problems.
Yes, we all thought we had left that pesky skin condition behind when we left high school. However, many women can experience acne or skin breakouts throughout their lives. Acne is a common problem that affects approximately 30 percent of the population. Caused by a bacteria, acne is essentially a result of too much oil production in the skin, which then clogs the pores. There are several causes to this oil production including hormones, genetics, and medications.
Signs of Aging
The signs of aging are perhaps the most annoying. Women can experience everything from pigmentation issues such as brown spots to those lines and wrinkles that can make them look older than they feel.
Many women have facial scars due to any number of reasons — from acne to an accident. Some even bear scars from their childhood. While these are often considered a badge of honor in some cases, some women want to return to a flawless, scar free appearance.
What Can Be Done About These Issues?
These three common skin problems are usually very easily addressed by a qualified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Thomas Wright, medical director of Laser Lipo and Vein Center, says, “These three common skin issues are very treatable through a number of readily available therapies and procedures.”
In acne cases, depending on the severity, there are treatments available such as topical creams for mild cases, to light therapy for more severe cases.
Treatments for the signs of aging are also numerous and include procedures such as dermal fillers to ease the look of lines and wrinkles to laser treatments to tighten and firm the skin. These types of treatments can also be very effective for the reduction in the appearance of scars.
