Textural issues include fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Facial lines and wrinkles form from because of a variety of things, including the natural aging process, damage from the sun, general muscle movement, gravity, injury, surgery, acne, smoking and other skin conditions that have a tendency to scar. When irregular thickening of the dermis occurs, as well as the amount of water held in the epidermis decreases*, fine lines develop. Dynamic or static lines are when deeper lines or furrows develop. These appear with movement, such as smiling or frowning. Dynamic lines will eventually become static. Static lines remain unchanged with muscle movement. Examples of fine lines include crow’s feet around the eyes, worry lines on the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Rosacea is a visible reddening of the skin of the face. It is a chronic skin disorder most common in fair-skinned women, and typically appears when a person is in their 30’s or 40’s. Beginning as a persistent flushing in response to stress or exertion, rosacea is progressive, with symptoms worsening over the course of years. Although there is no cure for rosacea, its appearance can be dramatically reduced.
Broken Capillaries are thread-like veins that result from dilation of blood capillaries. The key causes of broken capillaries are genetics, pregnancy, hormones, skin irritation, and sun damage. The primary treatments by Dr. Sheikh include the Veralite laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), RevLite®, Fractional Resurfacing, the TextureEffects Peel, and NINI Cosmeceuticals to promote removal of broken capillaries.
Dr. Sheikh approaches skin texture issues with an array of treatments used separately or in combination. These treatments include, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), RevLite®, TempSure™Envi, Fractional Resurfacing, Advanced Peels, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and dermal fillers, specifically Restylane®. Dr. Sheikh's skin care product line, NINI Cosmeceuticals, includes several remedies that reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
