The Most Common Skin Problems That People Struggle With
A lot of us aspire to have flawless skin, and why wouldn't we when we're surrounded by media, celebrities, social media, and airbrushed, filtered photos of people who have scarcely a scar or blemish.
We want glassy skin, a clear complexion, and a pore-less canvas to work with; but these are often unrealistic and unattainable standards of beauty. The goal should be to have healthy skin, not perfect, unblemished, untouched—or rather, retouched—skin. There's no airbrush or filter that will alter the natural texture of your skin in real life, but you can address common skin problems through medical and aesthetic interventions.
Some of the most common issues that we target through our facial services in Washington, DC include:
Acne is a skin problem that affects up to 50 million Americans, so you're definitely not alone if you find that you struggle with it. It's important to note the distinction between medical, aggressive acne, which requires extensive treatment under a dermatologist, and acne that can be addressed through facial services such as those offered at our salon. We offer multiple facials, including our special acne facial, which includes ultrasonic dermabrasion, steam, and multi-step cleansing.
Genetic and hereditary factors, temperature changes, humidity levels, and other factors all impact your skin, causing it to dry out. If you struggle with dryness, it's important to seek treatment for it; you can do so with a combination of moisturizing and hydrating facials, at-home remedies, and a holistic skincare routine.
Pigmentation is another common skin problem that results from lifestyle, health, genetic, and other factors. Resulting in darker-colored patches on the skin, uneven complexion is because of excess melanin production and affects all skin types. However, through various treatments, it is easily controlled, and often reversible.
Texture, pores, and acne
When excess dead skin cells build up on the surface of your skin, you end up with textured skin that can be difficult to manage. Sometimes, it may appear as bumps, or simply as unsmooth or rough skin, dullness, and even pores and acne. The appearance of large, open pores or acne can be alarming, but it is a fairly benign issue that can be solved through regular exfoliation and hydration, among other treatments.
A lot of these issues require care and maintenance, but are preventable for the most part.
