What Are Skin Blemishes and How Do We Get Them?

The phrase "skin blemish" is a very wide generic word and can certainly mean many things to different people. The blemished skin is simply some form of skin imperfection or disorder and can be in the form of wrinkles, age spots, skin pigmentation, freckles, acne, sun spots, acne scars, moles, birthmarks, uneven texture, blotchiness, warts, blood spots, skin sallowness, sagging skin, skin tags, damaged skin and the list goes on. 

Everyone will love to have the smooth clear complexion of a child whose skin is thick, plump and supple, almost without any flaws at all, isn't it? Smooth lovely radiant skin is is not only associated with and gives the impression of good health, vibrant youthfulness and beauty. However as we journey our way through the inevitable aging process, skin blemishes start to appear everywhere on our bodies with more regularity and much to our utter dismay, most notably on our faces and as such, having a regular and good skin care routine is very important to prevent skin blemishes from developing and getting worse.

 

By far, most skin imperfections are usually caused by too much melanin production mainly induced by excessive sun exposure. Melanin is a darker color pigmentation of the skin and is activated at the cellular level of the skin. Hyper-pigmentation is a skin condition when there is too much melanin. 

This pigmentation may cause various types of skin blemishes to develop and become apparent such as sun spots, sun damaged skin, freckles, liver spots, dry skin, moles, saggy skin, uneven skin tone and patchy skin, just to name a few of the many others. In some extreme cases, skin cancers may also develop from there. The more common types of skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma, melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma. 

People with darker skins such as the dark skin native people of the African countries and the native people of the Indian Sub-Continent have higher levels of Melanin in comparison to the white and fair skinned Caucasians. Is this nature's way of racial discrimination?

 





















Skin blemishes can form and develop through several factors such as frequent and prolonged exposure to the sun's ultra violet rays, hormonal changes in the body, injuries of the skin, medication, pregnancy and so on. The good news is that most skin blemishes can be treated with moderate to even good results. 


Regular and prolonged exposure to the sun's ultra violet rays are perhaps the most common cause for skin blemishes especially in the formation of wrinkles, age spots, patchy skin, liver spots and so on. Prolonged and regular sun exposure can even lead to the development of melanoma, which is the emergence and gradual growth of skin cancer which can then spread to the other organs in the body. As such, this situation can be a very dangerous medical condition when the melanoma is left untreated or even undetected as the cancer can easily be mistaken as a mole or some other form of skin imperfection.

 

So when you are out under the sun, it is better for you to put on sunshades and sunscreens to protect your skin. However, do not avoid the sun completely as sunlight is vital for your body to produce Vitamin D to synthesize with calcium for strong healthy bones and teeth.



















 

Skin brightening products and cosmetics are often used to treat dark spots and patches in order to get a brighter and more radiant skin tone and complexion. So having a daily ritual of applying good skin brightening products may be a good idea to prevent and even eliminate some types of blemishes. The problem is that many of these cosmetic products do carry harmful ingredients and chemicals and you ought to be more alert to such ingredients in those products. So how do you choose a good and safe skin brightener?
 

Well, most skin brighteners are designed to suppress the tyrosinase enzyme that triggers off the dark skin pigmentation to form up. Furthermore, these brighteners also help to flake away your dead skin cells making your skin looking brighter, fresher and more radiant. In order to execute these functions, many of the products contain harmful chemicals and fillers such as hydroquinone, steroids and mercury (usually labelled inconspicuously as mercuric, mercurous, calomel or other misleading generic names).

Medically speaking, mercury absorption or consumption may lead to a few psychological and neurological problems. The ingestion of mercury may even cause kidney diseases and mercury poisoning. Mercury can also be passed on from an expecting mother the fetus in her womb. So do carefully watch out for mercuric content on the labels of such products, especially more so if you are an expecting mummy to be.

Therefore when selecting a good skin brightener for yourself, you ought to look for products with more gentle ingredients especially those of natural plant extracts and are bereft of harmful chemical ones. One such safe and natural skin brightener is Illuminatural 6i™ which is scientifically developed by the skin specialist company Skinception. 

 

It is distinctively developed for the purpose of achieving radiantly youthful clear complexion with a healthy looking, blemish-free flawless skin and to diminish and even eradicate those unsightly dark spots without the use of harsh toxic chemicals. You can get rid of your skin blemishes safely and have a supple youthful glowing skin now with Illuminatural 6i™.

So let us take a look at some of the more common procedures dermatologists and aestheticians use to remove skin blemishes and the restoration of a more youthful looking skin. Let us check out just three of them here.

1) Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Rejuvenation - This procedure is more commonly known as the IPL (intense pulsed light) skin treatment. Patients may need to go through several treatment sessions depending on the severity of their skin blemishes for good results to show and thereafter to continue with the treatment periodically for maintenance purpose.

The IPL treatment system is especially useful for the treatment of imperfections such as uneven skin tone, blemishes caused by constant or prolonged sun exposure, acne scars, skin pigmentation, skin discoloration, rough scaly skin, dull skin and fine lines. The IPL treatment will also brighten up the skin and giving it a healthy and youthful glow.

This procedure works by beaming a series of light simultaneously to treat the various skin blemishes on the surface of the skin. Filters are then used to send the light in various wavelength frequencies into the depth of the skin. The treatment is used not only on your facial skin but can also be used on other body parts to eradicate blemishes on those areas as well.

The treatment is usually done with just under 30 minutes or even shorter. Some people may have slightly reddish looking skin for a couple of hours after the treatment. The good news is that there is no down time at all. Your skin may also be a tad sensitive to sunlight right after the treatment and therefore, applying some sun block may be a good idea.

2) Microdermabrasion - This method is when your aesthetician or dermatologist uses an equipment designed to "sand paper" your skin, so as to exfoliate the dead skin layer to reveal a newer and more youthful looking skin underneath it. At the same time, as the upper layer of skin is exfoliated away, the skin blemishes thereon are also eradicated in the same process.

Depending of the extent of your skin damage, several treatments may be required until the desired result is achieved. Thereafter, periodical treatments may be needed for maintenance purpose.
 

Microdermabrasion uses very small crystals that are sprayed on the skin, something akin to "mini sand blasting" in lieu of a better descriptive word. The procedure is known to work well for for the treatment of dull looking skin texture, age spots, resurfacing acne scars, smoothen out rough skin and skin discoloration. However this method of skin treatment is not known to be effective at all for the removal of moles, deep seated wrinkles, dark patchy birthmarks and burn scars.

3) Laser Therapy - There are several types of laser therapies to remove skin blemishes and they generally work like what is described here below.

This treatment method will work rather well for skin blemishes such as freckles, acne scars, age spots, spider veins, for the removal of dark eye bags, warts and certain scars and smaller moles. Various minor blemishes such as freckles and spider veins can often be eliminated in just one single treatment. Once a blemish is removed, it seldom comes back again and even if it does recur, another laser therapy treatment may just do the trick of removing it once again.

 

The procedure begins with the surface of the skin being treated with a topical local anesthesia. Cold air is then used to chill up the skin during the laser application. Then a laser is used to send a high energy light to remove the blemishes passing through the skin surface without actually harming it.


After the treatment, the area that was treated upon may develop a darker skin complexion and may even develop thin crusts of scabs. These scabs will usually flake away in a couple of days. When that happens, it will leave you with a fresh new but raw pinkish looking skin which will eventually fade away in another few days or so. You are advised wear your sunblock until your skin is fully recovered since the emergence of the brand new skin is very sensitive to sunlight and you wouldn't want to damage it right away again, do you?
