If you are suffering from acne then you understand how frustrating and difficult it is to treat this skin condition. At La Chele Medical Aesthetics, we understand acne and have the most effective means of treatment available to clear and eliminate acne flares. Our team of professionals have worked with thousands of acne patients both adults and teens and we understand that each individual requires a unique approach to treating this skin condition, even the most severe of cases.

Types of Acne

Usually blocked follicles are the primary source of acne formation, the breakouts however can manifest in several different ways which leads to different types of acne.

  • Blackheads: Blackheads develop when the follicle is has become clogged, but isn’t blocked off from the surface. The edges of the follicle expand, causing the pore to appear larger. Blackheads are a mild form of acne and usually appear on the face but are also common on the back, chest, neck, arms and shoulders.
  • Whiteheads: This type of acne is very common and affect both teens and young adults. Whiteheads are formed when the follicle becomes closed off at the surface of the skin. This blockage causes the sebum, dead cells and bacteria to build up inside of the pore which results in white coloration.
  • Pustules: This type of acne is a more advanced infection within the follicle. The build up of dead cells and bacteria typically results in a pimple that can be painful and swollen.
  • Cystic Acne: Cystic acne is the most severe and the hardest type of acne to treat because it is too deep for most topical medication. In the case of cystic acne, the sebum and puss begin to build up inside the skin. Rather then breaking through the surface this acne continues to grow deep into the skin.

What is Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is the result of your bodies response to lowered levels of elastin and collagen- these are the proteins that allow your skin to stretch and contract. Once you hit your 30s, your skin begins to lose these proteins resulting in thinner skin that eventually will sag.

There are many reasons why one may develop drooping brows but the most common cause is age-related. As we age, the stronger the pull of gravity gets and before we know it, our skin sags and our brows droop.

Treatments for Excess Body Hair

As we age, fine lines are created by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin along with years of harmful UV ray exposure from the sun. Fine lines are found commonly around the eyes and lips. At La Chele, we offer several treatment options to smooth out fine lines before they turn into deeper wrinkles and folds.

Jowls are an age-related problem that causes sagging skin around the jawline. This can happen for several reasons including the loss of fatty tissue in the face, the pull of gravity on our bodies and the weakening of support structures that keep fat in place. Another factor that results in facial sagging is depletion of a vital protein in the skin known as collagen. As the face begins to migrate downward, jowls develop leaving you with unbalanced sagging skin around the jaw.

Melasma is a very common concern among patients at La Chele Medical Aesthetics and is usually found on the face, neck, hands, chest and back. Sun damage is the number one reason why melasma occurs as exposure to the sun increases the color-making cells in the skin (melanocytes) causing hyperpigmentation. This hyperpigmentation results in “dirty” looking patches that slowly develop over time and often worsen in the summer. People with skin of color are more prone to melasma because they have more active melanocytes than those with light skin. A change in hormones such as being pregnant, taking birth control pills and hormone replacements are other common melasma triggers.

What is Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB)?

Pseudofolliculitis Barbae is a chronic foreign body inflammatory reaction to the hair shaft, predominantly seen in individuals with coarse, curled hair who shave regularly. People of color have a higher risk of PFB as they are genetically predisposed to curly hair and curved hair follicles. Shaving against the grain, close shaving, multiple blade razors, and stretching the skin while shaving can cause a retraction of sharp edged hairs back into the follicle.

What does Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB) look like?

The appearance of PFB can range from mild cases with few to severe papules, pustules, ingrown hairs and widespread inflammation. Often times, scarring and hyperpigmentation may occur. In most cases, PFB is present on the beard area of the face and neck and can also occur on the pubic area, scalp, legs and axilla.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a very common skin condition that is typically found in those with fair-skin between the ages of 30-50 years old. Rosacea causes redness on your nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. Some people may get little red bumps and pimples on these red areas which can become irritated and sore. There are two main types of rosacea:

  1. Erythrotelangiectatic rosacea: Redness, flushing and broken blood vessels
  2. Papulopustular rosacea: Very similar to acne with red spots and small pustules. Often times patients may develop swelling on the nose, known as rhinophyma.
  3. Rosacea blepharitis: Characterized as red, swollen eyelids
  4. Phymatous rosacea: Redness and thickening of the skin on the nose.

Fibrous connective tissue also known as a scar will develop after damaged skin tissue has healed. When tissue is damaged the body will repair the wound by increasing the production of collagen at the wound site.

Acne Scars

Acne scars can form from various factors including prolonged breakouts which cause significant damage to the skin and improper acne extraction techniques.

Treatment Options for Skin Tags

Spider veins are small veins varying in red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn. This type of vein is easily visible through the skin and commonly found on the face and legs. Similar to their larger counterparts (varicose), valve failure of these smaller veins cause blood to flow backward to the surface. This process is called reflux – where the veins become larger and visible. Spider veins develop in persons who inherit the condition from their parents. Although Spider Veins can cause discomfort they do not lead to more serious complications associated with varicose veins. If spider veins are exposed to the sun, further collagen tissue damage can occur.

Spider veins can develop due to various factors including aging, obesity, hormonal changes, sun exposure and a sedentary lifestyle.

Treatment for Spider Veins

Treatments for Thinning Brows

An uneven skin tone also known as hyperpigmentation, is an irregular darkening of the skin. This overproduction of melanin results in dark patches and spots that can drastically age the skin. Uneven skin tone is a result of various factors including sun exposure, hormone changes, pollution and discoloration due to acne scarring.

Treatments for Vaginal Rejuvenation

As we age the skin begins to lose elastic tissue and collagen which results in sagging skin and wrinkles. With age, skin cells divide more slowly, the inner layer of the skin also known as the dermis begins to thin. This process starts to undo the structure and elasticity of the skin. Another contributor to wrinkles are facial contractions such as frowning, smiling, squinting and other expressive facial expressions. These contractions make the lines between your eyebrows and the lines around the corners of your eyes (crows feet) more prominent. We can’t forget how damaging sun exposure is to the skin which leads to early signs of aging, wrinkles and folds.
