Skin Treatments Q&A
What are some common skin issues?
Just like any other organ, your skin can develop a condition that affects its health. Skin conditions are often more obvious than other health issues because they’re on the outside of your body.
Common skin issues that children, teens, and adults experience include:
- Skin tags
As you get older, your skin changes. Lines and wrinkles develop and discoloration, like brown spots, become increasingly common. These conditions may not pose a health risk, but they can affect your confidence and make you look older.
Do I need skin treatment?
Treatments are generally focused on clearing your skin and restoring your complexion. Skin tags and warts can be bothersome, and warts are often contagious. Removing them can eliminate embarrassment and discomfort.
Histofreezer® wart removal uses extremely low temperatures to painlessly freeze the wart, causing it to die and fall off. Skin tags can be removed with a simple procedure that often involves snipping them with sharp surgical scissors.
If you have a suspicious mole or patch of skin, a skin biopsy may be recommended. Biopsies remove a small sample of skin cells that are tested for skin cancer and other skin conditions.
Murrieta Primary Care Clinic performs both shave biopsies and skin punch biopsies for diagnostic testing. In a shave biopsy, a few layers top of the skin are removed with a razor. A punch biopsy takes a deeper sample with more layers of skin for testing.
What cosmetic skin treatments are available?
Many popular skin treatments aren’t medically necessary, but they have numerous anti-aging and aesthetic benefits. Find the latest in aesthetic services with microneedling, chemical peels, and more at Murrieta Primary Care Clinic.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can improve the look of everything from fine lines and acne scarring to brown spots and hyperpigmentation. When combined with platelet-rich plasma, a vampire facial enhances the skin rejuvenation you can expect with microneedling.
A chemical peel is an aesthetic procedure that resurfaces skin to improve tone and texture. Skin peels range in strength and benefits, and Murrieta Primary Care Clinic uses top-quality VI Peels that are selected to meet your skin care goals.
