Finding the right skincare solutions as an adult

Monday, July 31, 2017



The older you get, the more important it is to protect and care for your skin. Finding skin care solutions for adults is tricky with the market saturated with products and treatments that all claim to be the best choice for your skin. Working with a Denton dermatologist is the best way to learn more about your skin and what products will work best with it, allowing you to personalize your product selections. There are some general rules that your dermatologist follows for everyone when suggesting skin care products for adults. Whether you’re in need of acne solutions or anti-aging treatments, there are some key factors you can expect to look for when picking out suitable products.
Adult Acne Treatments
Fighting adult acne means cleansing and exfoliating without stripping too much oil away. Scrubs and peels with natural exfoliators can clear skin and treat adult acne without drying skin out. You want to encourage regeneration of skin cells as you age by stripping away dead layers regularly. With proper cleansing routines with prescription products that contain key ingredients like salicylic acid, sulfur, glycolic acid, and antioxidants, you can effectively reduce breakouts.
Your dermatologist may suggest treatments like tretinoin that can treat your adult acne while lightening acne scars and reducing fine wrinkles. It’s important to follow your dermatologist’s instructions to get the best effects from prescribed treatments. The medical grade products your Denton dermatologist can prescribe are top of the line and stronger than over-the-counter products. Keeping in touch with regular appointments can make sure you’re getting the best results.
Anti-Aging Products
There are thousands of products available for anti-aging, but the most effective ones have certain components to them that improve skin quality and maintain elasticity. Starting off with moisturizer and sunscreen keeps the skin healthy and protected from the aging effects of the sun’s UV rays. Dermatologists consider the combined use of these two products the best way to prevent signs of aging.
When choosing a sunscreen, pick a waterproof, broad spectrum formula that has an SPF of 30 or higher. Be sure to apply it every time you go out in the sun and reapply it every two hours for the best results.
Examine your face and target the specific signs of aging that you can identify. Each product will only treat one sign of aging and combine too many within the same week can irritate the skin. Using these products responsibly will help maintain the youthfulness of your skin.
Keeping Skin Smooth and Hydrated
Keeping your skin healthy and young while aging is a big concern for most adults. Choosing skin care solutions for adults that are formulated for your skin type keeps skin smooth and feeling its best. Dry skin accentuates the presence of wrinkles. Using creams and lotions with antioxidants and vitamins C and E softens and evens the skin while keeping it moisturized. Choosing barrier creams that hold in moisture keeps your skin from drying out over the course of the day. Dermatology Consultants are here to help you find medical-grade skin care solutions for adults as your skin changes over time. By carefully examining and analyzing your skin quality and type, our consultants guide patients through developing the best skin care routine with products that match your needs. Schedule an appointment with Dermatology Consultants to meet with a skin care doctor in Denton and learn how to keep your skin clean, healthy and clear no matter your age.

Signs That You Might Get Dandruff

Monday, July 31, 2017



White flakes on the shoulders of your black suit or dress are the ultimate source of self-consciousness at a party. Once they’re there, you know they’ll persist to appear no matter how often you brush them away. It’s dandruff and it’s here as your faithful companion throughout the evening. With proper treatment, you can avoid potential dandruff embarrassments, but it takes tackling a case of dandruff early. Identifying the symptoms of dandruff before you need to look your best lets you know it is time to schedule an appointment for dandruff treatment in Frisco before it gets too noticeable.


White flakes aren’t the only indicators that you’re developing dandruff. It’s caused by a microbe that exists on all scalps known as Malassezia globosa which breaks down the oils in the scalp. When these oils break down, irritation, itchiness, and dryness may occur. That itchiness is caused by high levels of histamine due to inflammation and compels you to scratch.  An itchy, irritated scalp is often a sign that you should see a dermatologist in Frisco to get your scalp treated as it’s often the very first symptom one gets when they develop a case of dandruff.


Dry, tight skin on the scalp can be another early indicator of a case of dandruff. Dandruff damages the natural moisture barriers of the skin on your scalp, making the scalp uncomfortably dry and taut, especially after being in the water. That dryness and scaliness is a source of the itching and flaking that are associated with dandruff. One can have a dry scalp without having dandruff, though. Dry skin associated with dandruff will be red and scaly when you examine it and the flakes will be larger and oily. If you notice these aspects early, you can prevent dandruff from progressing with a visit to the dermatologist.


When the scalp is irritated and damaged from dandruff, hair fall can increase as the scalp grows unhealthy, weak hair that will break off more easily. You may be developing dandruff if you find an increased amount of hair on your pillow in the morning or in the drain of your shower when you wash your hair. If it seems that you are losing more hair than usual, making an appointment with your dermatologist is important. Your dermatologist in Frisco can help you determine if you are losing more hair by having you examine your hair loss and count follicles to see if the loss is higher than the average daily amount.


Dandruff is an uncomfortable and often humiliating condition, but common and easily treatable with the help of regular dandruff treatment in Frisco. The dermatologists at Dermatology Consultants are able to examine, diagnose and treat dandruff and other scalp conditions while they’re still in their early stages. A healthy scalp means healthier, stronger hair and better overall skin health. With the right medical products and guidance from a skin care professional, you can treat your dandruff before flaking progresses and be ready to face any event you may attend this season with confidence. Contact Dermatology Consultants and schedule an appointment to get a head start on better scalp health. ..

 

Causes of Hormonal Acne in Women

Monday, July 31, 2017

For most women, reaching the adult years of life comes with a hope that their days of acne breakouts will be left behind in their yearbook pictures as a distant memory. For many, life isn’t so lucky. As women age, they can see breakouts happening throughout their lives. Some women go through puberty without a single break out only to see them crop up in their thirties or forties. It’s not uncommon for a person to need acne treatment in Carrollton well into their adult life.


While acne is a multifactorial condition, hormones are often a big factor in breakouts for women. When a woman’s androgen receptors are sensitive, they send out signals that cause excess oil production from the pores. This extra oil clogs up the pores and causes the inevitable acne breakouts. If breakouts are persistent or unmanageable, a person may need hormonal acne treatment for women to help clear the skin and keep them under control.

Pregnancy

It is very common for pregnant women to develop acne. In fact, one of every two pregnant women can expect to experience breakouts. The first trimester is the prime time for acne to develop as hormone levels skyrocket, though you may break out at any time. These cases can range from mild to severe and be particularly uncomfortable depending on that severity.


When dealing with pregnancy acne, it is crucial that you talk with your doctor before using any treatments for acne as many over-the-counter products have the risk of causing birth defects. By working with your doctor and your dermatologist in Carrollton, TX , you can find safe treatments that can relieve symptoms and reduce the chances of future outbreaks.

Menopause

During the last major hormonal shift in life, women may see a return of acne, though it’s often different than the cases they’ll see earlier in life. Menopausal acne is caused when the drop in estrogen, especially during the perimenopausal period, and androgen hormones, like testosterone, overwhelm the balance by staying on the same level. As androgen levels become the dominant hormone, the sebaceous glands start overproducing sebum which clogs up the pores. That combined with the slowdown of cell regeneration that blocks up pores with dead cells. The resulting acne tends to appear around the chin, jawline and upper neck, not in the T-zone. These also tend to be small, deep cysts that are tender to the touch instead of ‘whiteheads’ or ‘blackheads’ that appear near the surface as pustules.


Menopausal women have more options than pregnant women for treatment. Over-the-counter topicals and prescription treatments can help manage the symptoms of acne and clear skin over time. Hormonal acne treatment for women can help to lower a number of androgens in the body and balance out the hormone levels. By consulting a dermatologist in Carrollton, TX, you can develop a plan of action that best suits your health needs and tackle menopausal acne effectively.

Menstrual Cycles and Hormone Disorders

Not unlike the situations above, hormonal disorders can provoke acne breakouts by throwing off the balance of androgen and estrogen in the body. While acne can easily be caused by normal changes in hormonal levels caused by phenomena like menstruation, persistent acne issues that don’t align with cycling may indicate a hormonal disorder. These disorders tend to have symptoms like deepening of the voice, decreased breast size and facial hair accompanying them. If you are concerned your acne may be indicating a potential hormonal disorder, consult your doctor or dermatologist.


Scheduling an appointment with Dermatology Consultants in Carrollton, TX, is the best way to identify and treat hormone-related acne in women. No matter the cause, we can help you develop an acne treatment in Carrollton that will help you clear your skin and avoid potential acne scarring. Contact Dermatology Consultants today to set up an appointment and find your way to healthier, better skin.  ..
