Healthy skin is described as soft and smooth to the touch. Skin should feel neither too dry nor too oily and have sufficient moisture. Your skin should be reasonably firm, elastic, with fairly even coloring. Healthy skin has no blemishes and facial pores are small to medium in size. Unfortunately, most people do not have perfectly healthy skin.
Whether you have dry skin, need to repair a skin problem, or wish to have a more youthful appearance, the Charleston Aesthetics team, will develop a treatment plan to provide you with the skincare solution you have been looking for. If you are struggling with fine lines & wrinkles, facial broken capillaries, acne, acne scars, melasma, rosacea, or age and sun spots, we will offer you a treatment plan that will give you the healthy skin you have always wanted.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles in the face are due to a variety of factors like aging, environmental conditions, and lifestyle choices, including smoking, sun exposure, and tanning beds. With the loss of flexibility and strength, the skin prematurely ages and wrinkles. But you can treat fine lines and wrinkles! Please contact our office today to make a consultation appointment to discuss your options and treatment plan.
Spider veins on the face and legs affect millions of people. The cause of broken capilarries vary, and can range from heredity, pregnancy, hormonal shifts, weight gain, rosacea, extreme heat or cold, occupations or activities that require sun exposure. If you are looking for a solution to facial veins, you have come to the right place. Charleston Aesthetics can develop a plan to treat, reduce, and eliminate those unsightly capillaries.
Acne is one of the most common, widespread skin conditions that affect people every day. It is still unknown why some people have acne and others don’t – but acne is treatable! If you have any acne scars, there are methods to treat scarring and reduce the amount of visible damage. After considering a combination of personal factors, we will develop a plan to fit your skincare needs. As science progresses, it has been discovered that individuals who take medication for conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder develop a different kind of acne, which can also be treated at our practice.
Melasma, which is a condition that causes dark skin discoloration, commonly affects the upper lip area, forehead, and bridge of the nose, cheeks, jaw bone, and side of the neck. The pigment producing cells become stimulated and produce extra, unwanted melanin (brown color), resulting in patchy discoloration. If you are experiencing melasma, we would be happy to meet with you and discuss treatment options.
Rosacea is a pretty common and somewhat misunderstood condition. This skin condition affects the central face and across the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead causing redness and flushing. Certain activities and everyday choices can trigger rosacea, like exposure to extreme cold or heat, strenuous exercise, sunburn, stress, cold wind, alcohol, caffeine, and even spicy foods! Rosacea can be very uncomfortable.
Age and Sun Spots
Age and sun spots are the brown spots we see on sun-damaged skin. Age spots appear on skin that receives the most sun exposure over time, which tends to be the face, top of the hands, shoulders, chest, arms, and legs. Sun spots are caused by the over-production of melanin or damaged cells producing melanin pigment. To reduce the appearance of age spots or sun damage, the skincare team at Charleston Aesthetics will assess your skin needs and offer a specialized treatment plan.
