Acne, Skin Discoloration and Shave Bumps, are among the top ethnic skin problems reported to Dermatologist’s across the U.S. Do you suffer from any of these 3 embarrassing and painful skin problems? If you do or know someone who does, help is available.
Far too long, acne and cystic acne were accepted as an unavoidable obstacle to be endured, often times forcing the victims to try “home remedies” that many times were unsuccessful at the least and harmful at the worst. Some “home remedies” can burn or discolor the face, leaving the person in pain and creating additional problems like dark spots in sensitive areas of the face.
Acne, left untreated will lead to inflammation and scarring, many times after the acne has left, a secondary problem pops up, dark spots or blotches. These are from excess melanin forming (post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) around the “injury site” of the acne, or cystic acne.
Although this is a complex problem that for many has lasted for many years, we do have treatments in our office that will help end a lifetime of suffering, many procedures are performed in less than one hour. One such treatment is Acne Surgery, this treatment is for mid- to high-level acne, uncomfortable cystic acne, teen acne and hormonal acne. Click here for related products.

Speaking of enjoying, many men enjoy a nice close shave either on their face or their heads, unfortunately a close shave has unintended consequences. But men are not the only ones who like that silky smooth feeling, women too love that clean skin feel. Both can suffer the effects of a close shave in the form of “razor bumps” or “shave bumps”.
Razor bumps are little infections arising from cutting the hair too short. By cutting a hair too close instead of growing out it grows back inside and becomes an “ingrown hair”. When the hair grows inside, the body sees it as an invader and sends white blood cells to the area to fight it off. That’s where the swelling (inflammation) comes from and will lead to bumps, pus, discoloration of the skin and possibly keloid scars. Click here for accurate shaving instructions.

A good practice is to cut your hair, no matter where it is on your body, while it is wet and always use a moisturizing cream or oil. Keeping hair hydrated will help the razor cut more efficiently causing less irritation eliminating the need to shave multiple times.
