Acne Treatment

Acne Treatment | NogalesAcne is the term for the blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that can appear typically on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Seventeen million Americans currently have acne, making it the most common skin disease in the country. While it affects mostly teenagers, and almost all teenagers have some form of acne, adults of any age can have it. Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress.

Treatment for acne varies depending on the type and severity of lesions, as well as the patient's skin type, age and lifestyle. Some options include:

  • Topical Medications
  • Natural Antibiotics
  • Blackhead Extraction
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Skin Care
  • Blu-U Light Treatments
  • Laser Treatments
  • Hemp-Based Custom Facial and Body Products
  • Accutane (Potentially available for moderate to severe potentially scarring acne)

Acne scarring can be treated in a variety of ways as well. These include:

  • Chemical Peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Soft Tissue Fillers
  • Laser/Pulsed Light Treatments

Skin Cancer Treatment

Skin Cancer Treatment | NogalesSkin cancer refers to the abnormal, uncontrolled growth of skin cells. One in five people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Risk factors include fair-complexion, family history of melanoma, having multiple moles, and history of inappropriate sun exposure. Fortunately, skin cancer is almost always curable if detected and treated early.

The most common skin cancers are:

  1. Basal cell carcinoma - 80-85% of all skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma affects cells in the lowest layer of the epidermis. Directly related to cumulative sun exposure.
  2. Squamous cell carcinoma - 10% of all skin cancers. Squamous cell carcinoma affects cells in the middle layer of the epidermis.
  3. Melanoma - 5% of all skin cancers. Melanoma is a rare but very dangerous type of skin cancer. It is the leading cause of death from skin disease.

Skin cancers vary in shape, color, size and texture, so any new, changed or otherwise suspicious growths or rashes should be examined immediately by a dermatologist. Early intervention is essential to preventing the cancer from spreading.

Eczema Treatment

Eczema is a group of inflamed skin conditions that result in chronic itchy rashes. About 15 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of eczema, including 10-20 percent of all infants. Symptoms vary from person to person but often include dry, red, itchy patches on the skin which break out in rashes when scratched. Holistic eczema skincare protocol and hemp-based products are available.

Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis is a group of chronic skin disorders that cause itching and/or burning, scaling and crusting of the skin. Over seven million men and women in the U.S. of all ages have some form of psoriasis, which may be mild, moderate or severe. The most commonly affected areas are the scalp, elbows, knees, hands, feet and genitals. It is not contagious. Holistic psoriasis skincare protocol and hemp-based products are available.

Wart Removal

Warts are skin growths caused by viruses. Different warts respond to different treatments. Some go away on their own. Salicylic acid products (in the form of drops, gels, pads and bandages) can help self-treatment of many warts by dissolving the keratin protein that makes up the wart and the dead skin above it. Others can be removed via liquid nitrogen freezing. Surgery or laser may be recommended for painful or large warts that do not respond to these treatments.

Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness and swelling on the face. The scalp, neck, ears, chest, back and/or eyes may also be affected. Symptoms range from red pimples, lines and visible blood vessels to dry or burning skin and a tendency to flush easily. Many people find that the emotional effects of rosacea – such as low self-confidence and avoidance of social situations – are more difficult to handle than the physical ones. Although it can affect anyone, rosacea typically appears in light-skinned, light-haired adults aged 30-50. The exact causes of rosacea are not really known, and it tends to run a chronic, intermittent course.  It can be treated with topical and oral medications, as well as laser therapy or laser surgery. It is a chronic, intermittent cosmetic nuisance, but eye problems can be potentially serious and severe.  There can also be disfiguring facial growths.
