WHY WE CHOSE THIS REGIMEN FOR YOU:
Your skin has Rosacea, is Oily with evidence of Hyperpigmentation and no signs of Rhytides, also known as aging lines.
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 revealing 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 further discoloration is a high quality broad spectrum sunscreen. Equally important, is adding a skin brightening and lightening cream that contains several ingredients combating pigment including retinol, vitamin-C and niacinamide.
PROTECTING YOUR SKIN:
You have no signs of Rhytides, but unfortunately, they are inevitable over time. Aging lines are due to several factors, including repeated facial muscle contraction over time, cumulative sun and environmental exposure, free radical damage, and genetic factors. The good news is that you can help delay their formation with topical and protective ingredients including broad spectrum sunscreen, vitamin C, Vitamin E, and retinol. These compounds protect your skin from environmental damage and are free radical scavengers that can prevent and even reverse the signs of aging. They have even been shown to improve the appearance of aging lines in clinical studies.
