Skin Treatments: Acne, Roseola and Melasma
What skin conditions may require professional treatment?
There are a number of common skin problems that require professional treatment if they do not improve on their own. Once you have a proper diagnosis, Dr. Roba can help reduce the appearance of skin conditions such as:
- Uneven skin tone
These common, yet uncomfortable, skin issues can cause visible symptoms such as redness, bumps, and uneven skin. With professional guidance, your skin can dramatically improve.
What types of skin treatments are available?
The treatment you undergo relies heavily on your particular skin problem, but if you suffer from common conditions like acne, melasma, or roseola, Dr. Roba may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
- Topical medications such as hydroquinone, tretinoin, and corticosteroids
- Topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, and salicylic acid
- Oral antibiotics
- Chemical peel
- Laser therapy
What is laser therapy?
At Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Clinic, Dr. Roba uses Alma Lasers™, a precise and powerful laser designed to target all your problem areas, for a variety of laser treatments.
When oral and topical treatments aren’t enough to relieve your redness, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone, laser therapy can completely transform your skin. Some of the most common skin conditions that laser therapy treats are:
Laser treatments can help reduce your skin’s ability to produce sebum, an oil that clogs your pores and leads to acne flare-ups. With a series of treatments, you may even see a reduction in your acne scars.
Also called “the mask of pregnancy,” melasma is a condition in which brown spots appear on the face. This condition, which looks similar to hyperpigmentation, occurs most often during and after pregnancy. A series of laser treatments can help break up these dark spots safely and minimize their appearance over time.
Roseola is a mild infection that typically affects young children but can also occur in adults. The condition, which appears as an inflamed red rash all over the body, is most commonly caused by the herpes virus and other viral infections. Because the rash can be severe and itchy, patients affected by roseola are often left with scars. A series of laser therapy treatments may help reduce the appearance of these scars around your body.
