Human skin can experience a lot of wear and tear over the years, especially on the face. The environment, sun, dirt, cosmetics, and facial expressions all contribute to the damage that becomes visible on the outer layer. The result is a dull, unhealthy appearance in need of skin rejuvenation.
Microdermabrasion is the process of using tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin in the cosmetic dermatology industry. It uses no chemicals and is not invasive. The procedure removes the dead and dry outer layer of the skin’s surface to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath. It rejuvenates the surface, resulting in a brighter complexion.
Tissue refreshing in an autologous way (ATR), has the intention of skin regeneration by using bioactive thrombocytes and leucocytes of the patient itself and its activation from a single sterile solution which contains chloride calcium, essential for efficient activation of thrombocytes. The result is damaged, aged skin and hypodermal tissue regeneration.

Although it’s common, accurate information about acne can be scarce. This can make it difficult to get clearer skin. The information on this site can help you understand acne and how to successfully treat it.
Myths about acne are as common as the skin problem. One common myth is that you have to let acne run its course.
Dermatologists know that letting acne runs its course is not always the best advice.
Without treatment, dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears.
Treating acne often boosts a person’s self-esteem.
Many effective treatments are available.
Not just teens have acne. A growing number of women have acne in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond. Dermatologists are not sure why this is happening. But dermatologists understand that adult acne can be particularly frustrating.
Scars on an individuals skin, no matter how big or small, are often a great cause of concern as they tend to affect confidence. At venus center, our team of world-renowned experts are leaders in the field of laser treatments for the removal of stubborn trauma, surgical, and acne scars, and we’re confident in our ability to bring our patients healthy and radiant skin.
Scars on the skin can happen as a result of numerous factors. Most commonly, patients seek the help of a dermatologist when they are experiencing one of the following:
All three types of scars look very different. An acne scar may come in a number of sizes and depths, with some being called ‘ice-pick’ scars and others being small red pock marks. A surgical scar can form after a patient undergoes surgery and is usually raised slightly above the skin. Scars from trauma can leave discoloration and an uneven texture.
Resurfacing ablative & non ablative
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing is widely known as one of the best laser treatments for the diminishment of body and facial scars. Due to it’s targeted therapy, the laser can be adjusted to treat almost every kind of scar, be it acne, surgical, or trauma related. Laser resurfacing works to penetrate deep within the skin and scar to rejuvenate the appearance by providing a more even skin texture, tone, and color. Though patients may see excellent results after just one treatment, sometimes multiple office visits are necessary depending on the severity of scars present.
Dry, scaly, and painful hands could be hand eczema
Is the skin on your hands dry, thick, and scaly? Do you have deep, painful cracks on your hands that bleed? You may have more than dry skin. Hand eczema could be the culprit.
Hand eczema can cause the following:
Because it often looks like dry skin, hand eczema can easily be mistaken for dry skin. Unlike dry skin, you need more than a good moisturizer to get rid of hand eczema.
Relief requires finding the cause
Effective treatment begins with finding the cause. Anything that irritates your skin can cause hand eczema. Even something as harmless as water can irritate your skin if your often have wet hands. Many people who frequently have wet hands throughout the day, such as nurses, hair stylists, and plumbers get hand eczema.
Working with chemicals like solvents, detergents, or cement also increases the risk. Hand eczema is common among construction workers and machinists.
Hand eczema can also be caused by an allergic reaction. Some health care workers get hand eczema from wearing latex gloves.
You also have a higher risk of developing hand eczema if you had atopic dermatitis (often called eczema) as a child.
Because so many things can cause hand eczema, finding the cause can be tricky. Until you find the cause and avoid it, hand eczema can worsen.
Treatment includes avoiding the cause
When to see a dermatologist
If you have extremely dry, painful hands and using moisturizer throughout the day fails to bring relief, you may have hand eczema. Without treatment and preventive measures, hand eczema tends to worsen.

Although spider veins and varicose veins are different types of vein conditions, they do share similarities. In addition to being more common in women, both conditions can develop for similar reasons:
Previous vein surgery
Occupations that require long periods of standing, including retail sales, airline attendants, teaching or nursing, are also common factors in the formation of spider or varicose veins.
Large veins can form on the face but more typically develop on the legs, hands, and chest. They are often swollen and appear raised on the surface of the skin while twisting just below the surface. They swell as a result of an abnormal value within the vein, reversing the flow of blood and increasing the pressure inside the vessel, leading to the development of new veins downstream.
*Disclaimer: Results vary from patient to patient. Results are not guaranteed.
Due to the nature of these veins, they can cause cosmetic dissatisfaction and make one self-conscious; they can complicate one’s health, as well, because the unhealthy veins are taking blood from surrounding healthy veins. They may also cause pain by irritating sensory nerves.
Spider veins, on the other hand, are smaller and usually appear red, blue, or purplish as the veins branch out crookedly just beneath the skin of the legs or face. Although smaller and not as risky to one’s health, they may be unsightly.
Neither spider veins nor varicose veins are necessary, so removing them will not impact one’s body other than achieving clear, smooth skin. In fact, most people say that their legs feel better and lighter after removal of the unwanted veins because normal blood flow is reestablished.
And sclerotherapy spider vein treatment in San Diego is safe, simple and quick when performed appropriately.
The technology that drives sclerotherapy has been around for over 150 years, and it is still one of the safest, most successful spider vein removal methods available. A hardening solution (FDA-approved Asclera™ or Sotradecol™ or a glycerin solution) is injected directly into the vein, which causes it to dissolve. The vessel turns into hardened scar tissue over a few weeks and then slowly dissolves over a few months.
A single sclerotherapy session can destroy up to 90% of the injected veins. For the smaller spider veins, final results can be seen within two months while the larger varicose veins typically respond in 3-4 months. Results vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of the vein issue, the number of injections, and patient overall health.
The chances of serious side effects are extremely rare, especially in the hands of world-class dermatologists. Once the 15-30 minute procedure is finished, downtime is virtually nonexistent, as most patients go back to their normal day.
The most common side effects reported are mild redness, itching, and bruising. All side effects usually disappear within a week.
While downtime is almost nothing, patients are required to wear compression stockings continuously (even when bathing) during the first week after treatment to facilitate faster and more efficient healing. Depending on the size and extent of veins your doctor may recommend continuing to wear the stockings during the day for another 1-2 weeks.
The number of spider vein treatments depends on the extent of veins. A general guideline is 2-3 sessions to achieve the best results.

Sclerotherapy is the ideal treatment for anyone wanting a safe, successful, minimally invasive treatment for unsightly veins. Patients with busy schedules or with an aversion to surgery are often well suited to the simple vein treatment.
However, the best way to know is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified vein specialist.
Dermatologist examines mole on patient’s neck
While sheltering in place during the coronavirus pandemic, people are tackling all sorts of DIY projects from baking bread to sewing COVID-19 masks. Some people are even trying DIY surgeries, such as removing a mole or skin tag.
Dermatologists caution that at-home surgery can go seriously wrong quickly and unexpectedly. Trying to remove a mole or skin tag at home could cause a deep-seated infection. You could cause unstoppable blood loss. To get life-saving care, you’d have to go to the emergency room (ER).
If you have a mole or skin tag that you want to remove, you can still contact a dermatologist.
During the coronavirus pandemic, some dermatologists offer telemedicine appointments. This allows you to consult with a dermatologist while sheltering in place. If the spot on your skin needs immediate care, you can schedule an in-person visit.
Whether the spot on your skin requires immediate medical care or can be removed later, you want to see a dermatologist. Here are five reasons why:
A mole that grows, itches, or changes in any way could be skin cancer.
If you remove this mole at home, the cancer can spread before it’s found.
Find and treat skin cancer. Skin cancer can appear on your skin in many ways. It can look like a changing mole, new growth, or scar. When you see a dermatologist, you receive the care you need to find out whether or not you have skin cancer. If you have skin cancer, you can receive expert medical care.
If you remove a mole at home that’s actually a skin cancer, you can leave behind microscopic cancer cells. These cancer cells can multiply and spread deep into the tissue beneath your skin. If you have melanoma, these skin cancer cells can spread quickly throughout the body. This is why melanoma is called the deadliest skin cancer.
Caught early and treated, melanoma is highly treatable.
Control infection risk. When doctors cut into skin, they follow guidelines that dramatically reduce the risk of infection. Without this knowledge, you risk developing a serious infection, which can require a trip to the ER.
Minimize scarring. Any time you wound your skin, you risk developing a scar. Dermatologists have the expertise required to reduce scarring.
Prevent loss of movement due to scarring. If you cause a scar on skin that covers a joint, such as a knuckle or elbow, the scar can limit how far you can move your finger or elbow. Dermatologists understand this risk and use their expertise to help avoid this.
Avoid difficult-to-stop blood loss. Before treating you, your dermatologist will ask questions about your medical conditions and medications that you take. This information helps your dermatologist know what could cause difficult-to-stop bleeding and take necessary precautions.
Dermatologists also have the in-depth medical expertise required to remove skin growths with the least amount of injury. Without this knowledge, it’s easy for you to nick a blood vessel or cut into a vein unexpectedly.
It’s understandable that you may want to do everything you can to treat yourself at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Dermatologists are helping people do this when possible. They’re also providing information to help you avoid unnecessary risks, such as DIY mole removal.
