At Between the Bridges Healthy Skin, we understand that your skin is an essential part of your self-image. That's why we offer a wide range of treatments for conditions that affect your skin. Whether you're looking to improve the appearance of your skin or treat a medical condition, we are here to help.
A few of the many conditions we treat and manage include:
Oncology Skin Reactions
Oncology skin reactions are skin reactions that occur as a result of cancer treatment. While skin reactions can vary in severity, they can all be extremely bothersome and disruptive to patients. The most common oncology skin reactions include itchiness, erythema (redness), dryness, and skin rashes.
Patients should keep the affected area clean and dry, and should contact our providers if they see signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, or pus.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Though the exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, it is thought to be related to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The most common symptoms of rosacea include redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels on the face. In some cases, rosacea can also cause swelling, bumps, and even eye irritation.
Left untreated, rosacea can progress from occasional flare-ups to a more constant state of redness and inflammation. However, there are several effective treatments available that can help control the symptoms of this condition. With proper medical care at our clinic, most people with rosacea can enjoy clear, healthy skin.
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This can happen for several reasons, including hormonal changes, genetics, and the overproduction of oil by the sebaceous glands. Acne can occur anywhere on the body, but it is most commonly found on the face, neck, chest, and back.
There are a variety of different types of acne, ranging from blackheads and whiteheads to cysts and nodules. The treatment offered for your acne will depend on the severity of your condition. More severe cases may require prescription medication or even surgery.
Regardless of the severity, acne can be a frustrating and embarrassing condition. However, with proper treatment, it is possible to control breakouts and restore confidence.
Hair loss can be a very distressing condition affecting both men and women. It can have a number of different causes, including medical conditions, genetic factors, and side effects of medication. There are several different types of hair loss, ranging from temporary shedding to permanent baldness. In most cases, hair loss is not a sign of a serious medical condition.
However, if you are experiencing sudden or severe hair loss, it is important to see a provider to rule out any underlying medical causes. With the right treatment, hair loss can be effectively managed, and your natural hair growth can be restored.
We have all seen it: the beautiful woman or man who— despite the years—seems to grow more attractive with time. But how do they do it? How do they manage to age gracefully, without succumbing to the common signs of aging skin?
The first step is to understand what causes skin aging in the first place. There are two main types of aging: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic aging is the natural aging process that happens over time, even if we take good care of our skin. Extrinsic aging happens when outside factors—such as sun damage, smoking, and pollution—accelerate the aging process.
As we age, our skin goes through changes. The most noticeable changes are a decrease in elasticity and collagen production, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. The loss of moisture also contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the turnover of skin cells slows down, which makes it more difficult for the skin to heal from injuries and regenerate after exposure to environmental stressors.
Fortunately, there are several things we can do to help slow down the aging process and keep our skin aging gracefully. Contact us today to discuss your treatment options!
