How We Can Upgrade Your Skin Care to Boost Confidence

When you look in the mirror and see a blemish on your skin, whether the related condition is serious or not, you tend to feel bad about how people will see you. After all, people will notice your skin because it’s all over your body, and research shows that skin problems can directly affect self-esteem and stress levels. We want to look our best, but it's hard to feel good about yourself when problems are as visible as they are on your skin that people regularly see (like your face, neck, arms, and hands).

But often, blemishes on your skin are also indicative of underlying conditions that need treatment, so improving its appearance not only makes you feel better but is better for your health. To better understand why you should take better care of your skin and what methods can help, let’s examine why your skin is so important, what conditions affect your skin, and what we can do to help.

 

If you live in the Lake Oswego, Oregon, area and you’re struggling with skin blemishes and imperfections that affect how you see yourself, Lake Grove ENT and our team of specialists in Laser and Aesthetic services can help.

Why your skin is important

Your skin is more than just what people see. It’s the largest organ you have and is responsible for a wide range of functions, including acting as a barrier from injury and disease, regulating temperature, sweating, and gathering sensory information from the world around you. This organ has three main layers: the dermis, epidermis, and subdermis. In these layers, many things, such as skin color, hair growth, nerve endings, and blood vessels, work in this area to keep you healthy.

Conditions that affect skin

Not only does your skin determine the skin color, hair growth, and other factors that determine how people see you, but visible problems can indicate underlying problems that range from minor irritations to major diseases. There are some obvious things you may notice on your skin, like discoloration or wrinkles, but here are just some of the other problems your skin may struggle with:

Services we offer

To help with these and other skin problems, we offer a range of solutions, such as:

Laser treatments

Also referred to as laser therapy, we employ several treatments, such as ultherapy, intense pulsed laser (IPL) therapy, and the nonablative lasers that the ICONTM 1540 and Clear + Brilliant® devices can provide. These can help with a range of conditions, including acne and hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Injectables

This is a method where materials are injected into the skin for various purposes. Dermal fillers like Juvaderm® help to fill areas of deep wrinkles and add volume to sagging skin, and Botox® is used to relax muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Topical treatments

We also have a variety of topical creams to help, such as Colorescience®, Neocutis®, OBAGI®, Epionce®, retinoids, glycolic acid, and hydroquinone. In addition to hydrating skin, many can help with dryness, itchiness, and other common irritations.

If you feel uncomfortable with a change in your skin and have concerns about how to treat it, make an appointment with the team at Lake Grove ENT today to get the solution that works for you.
