Our therapists can address many conditions and concerns you may have with your skin. In addition to our restorative facials and aftercare products, we target specific treatments for:
That's okay, many times we think something is 'just a pimple', or just a fact of aging. Your skin should look and feel healthy. Have a specific issue?
A dermatofibroma is a growth that can occur anywhere on your skin They most often appear on your upper arms, lower legs and upper back. These skin growths feel like hard lumps below your skin. They range in color from flesh-colored to deep purple.
Keratosis pilaris, sometimes called “chicken skin,” is a common skin condition that causes patches of rough-feeling bumps to appear on the skin. These tiny bumps or pimples are actually dead skin cells plugging hair follicles. They sometimes appear red or brown in color and are commonly found on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, or buttocks.
Skin tags are benign, noncancerous, tumors of the skin. They consist of a core of fibers and ducts, nerve cells, fat cells, and a covering or epidermis.
They may appear on the:
Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light speeds up the production of melanin, a natural pigment that gives skin its color. On skin that has had years of sun exposure, age spots appear when melanin becomes clumped or is produced in high concentrations
Cholesterol deposits are soft, flat, yellowish lumps. They tend to appear on the upper and lower eyelids, near the inner corner of the eye, and often develop symmetrically around both eyes.
These lesions may remain the same size or grow very slowly over time. They sometimes join together to form larger lumps.
Broken blood vessels — also called “spider veins” — occur when they're dilated, or enlarged, just beneath your skin's surface. This results in small, red lines that spread out into a web-shaped form. They can develop anywhere on the body, but they're more common on the face and legs.
An acne lesion (pimple) grows when bacteria, oils and dead skin fill up and inflame pores, the tiny openings in your skin through which oil and sweat rise to the surface. Some 40,000 cells fall off your skin every hour but, sometimes, those dead cells clog up a pore. Sometimes clogged pores are small and result in “whiteheads or blackheads.” Sometimes these pores become inflamed and lead to other types of acne.
Red moles, or cherry angiomas, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body. They’re also known as senile angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots.
They’re usually found on people aged 30 and older. The collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance.
The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely. Skin becomes more transparent. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis. Skin becomes more fragile. Collagen production starts to decline around 25 years of age, decreasing approximately 1-2% per year afterwards.
Skin noticeably starts to lose its elasticity in your 30s to 40s and particularly in the first five years of menopause when women's skin loses around 30% of its collagen.
