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.
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 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, 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.
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 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 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.
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 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.
