WHY WE CHOSE THIS REGIMEN FOR YOU:
Your skin has Rosacea, is Oily, has signs of Rhytides, also known as aging lines and evidence of Hyperpigmentation.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, small and superficial dilated blood vessels on facial skin, papules, pustules, and swelling. The cause of Rosacea is not well understood, but it is known that the superficial blood vessels hyperactive and become dilated resulting in flushing and redness. One of the triggers for this reaction is irritating skin creams.
Oily skin is due to an over secretion of sebum from your sebaceous glands, and usually occurs in the central areas of the face (nose, central cheeks, central forehead and chin).
Our Marko & Lane dermatologist did note evidence of Hyperpigmentation, a condition that reveals itself in the form of diffuse patches of darker skin, or smaller brown spots that can result from cumulative sun and environmental exposure. Sometimes this dark discoloration can also occur from acne that leaves brown spots after resolving. The most important topical product to use to prevent discoloration is a high quality broad spectrum sunscreen. Equally important is adding skin brightening and lightening creams that contains several ingredients combating pigment including Vitamin C, B3, and UVA ursi, a botanical compound found to block excessive melanin production.
Rhytides, also known as superficial aging lines, are a result of several factors including repeated facial muscle contraction over time, cumulative sun and environmental exposure leading to free radical damage, and genetic factors. There are ways to combat aging with effective topical creams containing ferulic acid and vitamin-A derived compounds such as retinol.
