what does the skin classic treat?
Broken capillaries (telangiectasis) are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucus membranes. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, chin, and chest. They can be caused by environmental damage such as sun or cold exposure and may increase with age.
Cherry Angiomas are small clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin that form a small round dome, or papule, which is often flat topped. The color typically ranges from bright red to purple. When they first begin to appear, they are almost flat and appear as small red dots but can grow over time. Larger cherry angiomas may be thick and raised. These are found in various areas of the face and body and are typically caused by aging, pregnancy, genetics, and excessive sun exposure.
Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a disorder of the oil glands and is a common, benign condition most commonly found in adults of middle age or older. These lesions can be single or multiple and appear as a yellow, soft, small papule on the face. They are round and the oil surrounds the pore giving it a "donut-like" appearance. Typically these occur on the nose, cheeks, and forehead.
Brown Spots (sun spots, liver spots), or Lentigo, are small pigmented spots that occur on the skin and have a clearly defined edge, surrounded by skin that appears normal. Unlike freckles, these will stay stable in their color regardless of sunlight exposure and occur in sun exposed areas appearing on the face, arms, tops of hands, and chest. The lesions are usually brown in color and may range from yellow-tan to black.
A seborrheic keratosis is a non-cancerous skin tumor that originates from cells in the outer layer of the epidermis and are seen more often as people age. These lesions can be slightly elevated, have a waxy or scaly appearance, and appear in various colors ranging from light tan to black. Seborrheic keratoses are commonly found on the face, chest, shoulders, and back.
A skin tag is a small benign tumor that primarily forms in areas where the skin creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. Sometimes they may also appear on the eyelids or other areas of the face. These are harmless and typically painless, and do not grow or change over time.
Blackheads, or comedones, are a black colored bump on the skin caused by excess oil that has accumulated in the sebaceous gland's duct. The substance found in these bumps typically consists mostly of keratin and sebum. When the open follicle begins to oxidize, it contributes to the black appearance.
Acne Vulgaris, or cystic acne, is a common skin disease, characterized by areas of the skin with blackheads, whiteheads, papule, pimples, and cysts usually accompanied by scarring. Acne is most common on the face, back, and chest and can sometimes be inflammatory. Acne develops from blockages in the hair follicles.
A milium, (milia plural) is a keratin filled cyst that can appear just under the epidermis. Milia are very common in newborn babies, but can appear on people of all ages. They are most commonly found around the nose and eyes.
