Acne

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the hair follicle. The lesions are comedones, pustules, papules, and cysts that leave residual lesions such as spots and scars. There are different types and levels of acne, which will determine the treatment and follow-up according to the need.

Rosacea

It is a chronic and inflammatory skin disease that leads to generally centrofacial redness and papula -like lesions. It is most often seen in young, light-skinned women. There are not only home treatments, but also in-office treatments, such as pulsed light.

Seborrheic Dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a cause of dandruff. It can occur in both newborns and adults. It does not only affect the scalp, but also all areas with a large number of sebaceous glands. Due to various factors, hypersecretion of the gland occurs, generating excess oil, redness of the skin and flaking.

Melasma

Melasma, or also known as "cloth", consists of the appearance of hyperpigmented spots in areas exposed to the sun, especially the face. Its appearance is associated with hormonal changes associated with sun exposure. Treatments should not only be at home, but also in-office treatments should be associated. For this the commitment of the patient is extremely necessary to achieve a good result.

Ephelides

The efelides or better known as “freckles” are small brown spots that are especially seen on light skin associated with sun exposure.

As they are benign skin lesions, they generally do not need treatment.

However, for aesthetic reasons they can be removed using different treatments such as chemical peelings, cryotherapy, intense pulsed light or lasers.

They do not usually respond well to depigmenting creams.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a very common disease in the general population. It is characterized by a more accelerated skin replacement, which causes scaling and redness of the skin. The most frequently affected areas are the elbows and sacral zone. It usually generates itching and it is very esthetically annoying. It is a systemic disease, meaning that it not only affects the skin but also the joints, scalp and nails. It is usually associated with metabolic syndrome, hence the importance of good follow-up by physicians specialized in the subject.

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is characterized by the loss of color of certain areas of the skin. The cause is unknown, but it is associated with autoimmunity.

The extent and speed of color fading are unpredictable. It can affect any part of the body.

Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin.

Vitiligo treatment does not only intend to re-establish the color of the affected skin, but also to stop skin depigmentation.

Ringworm

This is called fungal skin infection. Although it can affect any part of the body, the most common is tinea pedis or athlete's foot. Treatment is important because chronicity can lead to complications such as fungal infection of the nails.

Atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a condition that usually occurs in childhood but may continue into adulthood. It is characterized by symptoms of allergic outbreaks on the skin of children. This disease should be controlled to avoid discomfort caused by itching that children feel, as in advanced cases it can compromise their behavior and school performance.

Photo and chrono aging

The skin undergoes physiological aging associated with age (chrono-aging) and another associated with sun exposure depending on our past or current lifestyle habits (photo-aging).

Other factors, such as smoking or pollution, can also influence skin aging.

To combat chrono-aging, multiple treatments can be performed, both at home and in-office. For this purpose, each patient will be specifically evaluated in order to provide them the correct treatment they need.

Complications in permanent and temporary tattoos

Complications from permanent tattoos are multiple, including allergies (especially produced by red ink), infections, exacerbation of pre-existing skin diseases, among others. Depending on the diagnosis, each complication has its own specific treatment.

Temporary tattoos usually generate a local allergic reaction. As a complication, cross-allergy may occur with certain drugs, hence the importance of not taking them, especially in children.
