Skin Conditions & Ailments
Skin Conditions and Ailments
We offer treatments for Skin Conditions/Ailments such as but not limited to the following:
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae : frequently known as irritated shaving bumps, is more common to African-American Males. Risk factors generally include tightly curled hairs and certain Keratin gene variations. They are typically results of facial shaving. Treatable with the Etherea-MX® IPL-SQ® or LongPulse® Laser.
Cheilitis : inflammation in the lips. It is usually caused by a fungal infection called Candida that mainly effects the corners of the mouth. It is the same fungus that causes diaper rash for babies, and is curable. Certain bacteria strains can also cause it. Other effected areas can include the vermillion border (outside borders of the lips) and the labial mucosa (the internal lining of the cheeks and lips). Treatable with the Etherea-MX® IPL-SQ® Laser.
Skin Lesions : which can be caused by multitudes of things, are treatable using the Etherea-MX® DualMode® Laser. There are two kinds of Lesions, Primary and Secondary. Primary skin lesions are abnormal skin conditions present at birth or acquired over a person’s lifetime. Secondary skin lesions are the result of irritated manipulated skin lesions. For example, if you have a mole and pick at it, the resulting lesion, a crust, is now a secondary skin lesion.
Keratosis : commonly referred to as “Chicken Skin” is a benign condition and is a result of built up keratin in the pores. The exact reason as to why this buildup happens is unknown, but doctors believe it is linked to other skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis and genetic diseases. Treatable with the Etherea-MX® ACROMA QS® or DualMode® Laser.
Dermatitis : generalized as skin inflammation, when the skin typically looks dry, red and swollen. While it can be uncomfortable for some, causing itchy skin ranging from mild to severe, dermatitis can flare up during certain times of the year, certain exposures or stress. Treatable with the Etherea-MX® IPL-SQ® or DualMode® Lasers.
Warts : caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which have plagued humans for thousands of years, are raised bumps on your skin. Although they aren’t dangerous they can be painful, potentially embarrassing and contagious. There are more than one kind of wart, such as planters warts, flat warts, filiform warts, and periungual warts. Treatable with the Etherea-MX® LongPulse®, ProDeep® or DualMode® Lasers.
Acrochordons : commonly known as Skin Tags, the cause of which is unknown. Since they generally are found in folds of the skin (armpits, groin, thighs, eyelids, neck or the area under the breast) friction seems to be the #1 culprit. According to a 2008 Study the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) may be a factor in the development of Skin Tags. Treatable with the Etherea-MX® DualMode® Laser.
HPV Lesions : or more generally known as Genital Warts, are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). They can effect both men and women, however women are more vulnerable to them. They can be treated, but will come back if the underlining infection is not taken care of. They are not always visible to the naked eye, and require a trained profession to treat them. They can be very small and the same colour of your skin or just slightly darker. They can occur as a singular wart or come as a cluster. Either way, they are treatable with the Etherea-MX® LongPulse® or DualMode® Laser.
Thrush : usually referred to as Oral Thrush, is a yeast infection caused by Candida. Thrush is usually caused by one of the following: antibiotic use, undergoing chemotherapy, having dentures, having diabetes, being HIV Positive, being a smoker or using steroidal medications. We control recurrent Oral Thrush with the Etherea-MX® DualMode® Laser.
