How Our Orange County Med Spa Can Assist In Treating Common Facial Skin Conditions | David Ghozland
When it comes to our skin, taking care of it is a top priority. It is important to remember to put on sunscreen before you leave the house, use moisturizer, and clean your face before bed. In fact, having a reliable skincare routine is just as important as brushing your teeth or taking care of your physical health by getting regular checkups with your doctor. But despite all of our efforts to keep our skin looking youthful, glowing, and healthy, skin conditions can and do arise. Luckily, there are ways to treat many of these conditions and help your skin look better than ever. The secret? Med Spa.
What is a Med Spa?
A med spa (also known as a medical spa) is a facility that offers an array of services to help treat skin conditions and keep you looking and feeling great. Med spas typically offer a lot of different services and treatments that encompass a wide assortment of concerns, from removing scarring to administering injectables, such as Botox. Couple our state-of-the-art treatments with a comforting, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff; it is almost like you are on vacation!
What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated at a Med Spa?
A med spa should be able to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including those that have to do with the facial area. These conditions can be caused by a variety of things, such as fluctuating hormone levels, aging, pregnancy and childbirth, sun damage, and even infections. It is important to remember proper skin care and to always keep up with your sunscreen application when heading outdoors.
Here is a list of some of the facial skin conditions that can be treated at a med spa.
Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which certain areas of the skin appear darker than your actual skin tone. This is fairly common in pregnancy and with sun damage. While hyperpigmentation is more prevalent in those with darker skin tones, it can actually affect anyone and at any age. While it is rarely harmful and is usually cosmetic, it can be a symptom of an underlying cause. Hyperpigmentation can be treated at a med spa through the use of several treatments, such as laser procedures and skin lightening; a consultation can help decide which would be best for you.
Rosacea is a condition that affects many individuals worldwide. While most common in fair-skinned women who are middle-aged, it can affect anyone. It affects the face, causing red, rough spots to form. These flare-ups can vary in intensity and tend to get worse over time if they are not treated. Thankfully, there are treatments offered by a med spa that can help clear up rosacea. Noninvasive treatments are often chosen for treating this condition.
When you think of acne, you probably think about teenagers. However, there are many adults who suffer from acne as well. Even if you are not currently battling chronic acne, there may be scars left over from when you were younger. These scars can be treated and even removed through a variety of different treatments. From lightning treatments to microneedling, there is something available to treat acne scars at a med spa.
Melasma is a condition in which those afflicted notice gray or brown patches occurring on the skin of the face. Areas such as the bridge of the nose, the forehead, the cheeks, the upper lip, and the chin are the areas that are the most prone to developing these patches. Like with hyperpigmentation, there are several treatment options at a med spa that can work to reduce the appearance of Melasma.
Many skin conditions are not listed, such as scarring, sagging skin, and stretch marks, that can be treated at a med spa. Med spas also offer a variety of fillers to help fill out the face or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
