Control Acne with a Superficial Chemical Peel, Part 1

Woman with hair wrapped in towelWe have all been there: acne and pimples can be a real hassle, especially when making a good impression matters. Now, there is a simple, safe, and effective way to control breakouts. In Englewood, dermatology clinics offer light chemical peels as part of their skin treatment services. Learn more about this treatment option below.

Don’t let the name scare you away: a “chemical peel” does not make your skin come off! Instead, the procedure involves a special solution, normally composed of salicylic acid that quickly exfoliates your skin. The exfoliation process allows dead skin cells to shed easily, preventing them and excess oil from clogging your pores. As a result, you are less likely to form pimples.

The superficial chemical peel is an excellent supplement to your daily acne treatment routine. In many circles, this procedure is known as a “lunchtime peel” since it takes place within the span of a lunch break: a testament to how seamless the results are.

Colorado Skin Care offers chemical peels as one of our acne treatment options. We ensure the procedure is safe and effective and will happily answer any questions you may have before or after the chemical peel. If you are ready to finally kick acne to the curb, contact our Englewood dermatology clinic today at (303) 740-4883.

How to Treat Facial Psoriasis

Those who are affected by this skin condition should pay close attention to what triggers a flare-up. If swimming in a chlorinated pool, specific facial wash ingredients, or other factors cause your psoriasis to become nearly unmanageable, it is essential that you cease those activities and remove those products from your daily routine.

Topical steroids are one way to treat psoriasis on the face and body; however, their use should be limited as it can cause the skin to thin out over time. It is important to discuss treatment options with your Denver skin care specialist, as your skin may not react the same way as someone else’s.

Are You Sweating Too Much?

Close up of sweat on the bodyExcessive sweating is a common concern for many. Though a lot of sweat is common during exercise, it is possible to experience excessive sweating randomly throughout the day.

Sweating is our body’s way to release heat and cool down, keeping our body temperature regular. People are sweating all the time, even when we are unable to notice it. If you find that you are visibly sweating more than usual, it may be caused by a variety of factors such as heat, stress, and alcohol.

How Much Sweat is Too Much?

If you are concerned about the amount of sweat your body is producing, it could be hyperhidrosis, a condition that affects about 3% of the population. There is no precise diagnostics to determine how much sweat is too much, but usually, those who express concerns over their expressive sweating are producing much more than usual.

Many factors can contribute to overactive sweating, such as menopause, medications, pregnancy, and diabetes. If you are experiencing excessive sweating, contact our dermatologist in Denver. Our specialist at Colorado Skin Care can help you address your sweating concerns and determine the necessary causes and treatments. Give us a call today at (303) 740-4883 to schedule an appointment.
