Skin Conditions

From freckles to age spots, an uneven complexion makes many of us self-conscious. While there are many skin lightening solutions on the market, they aren't all created equal and some may even be dangerous. Hyperpigmentation, or "dark spots" can be caused by acne scars, excessive sun exposure, aging or hormonal changes. Dark spots treatment at Skin Glow Medical include chemical peels, laser sessions and microneedling.

We all get wrinkles as we get older. They are a normal part of aging. With age,skin cells divide more slowly, and the skin's inner layer, called the dermis, begins to thin. That starts to undo skin's stretchiness and structure. Aging skin also starts to lose its ability to hold on to moisture, makes less oil, and is slower to heal, which contributes to the wrinkling process. If you are considering treatment for your wrinkles and/or fine lines, ask Dr. Krikhely which procedure is right for you. Options include:

  • Chemical peels
  • PRP
  • Botox injections
  • Fillers

Acne is one of the most common skin concerns in the US, affecting nearly 85% of people at some point in their life.

Certain factors can trigger or worsen acne, including genetic predisposition, diet, menstruation, hormones and stress. Acne treatments at Skin Glow Medical include chemical peels and laser sessions. Seeking an early treatment is important as it may avoid or minimize complications or scarring. (attach photo acne)

Dark circles under the eyes, can occur to children and adults, and to women and men alike.

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. There are several therapies (including creams and massages) that have been suggested to remove cellulite, but none have been supported in scientific or medical literature. Dr. Krikhely recommends Carboxytheraphy as the treatment aims at improving overall blood circulation and stimulates all body's natural functions for reap long lasting results.

The skin is a dynamic organ, capable of regenerating itself after injuries. However, some injuries cause the skin to heal with scarring. Scarring injuries can cause depressions in the skin surface such as those formed as the result of acne, surgery, stretch marks or burns. Other times they can form a raised scar as a result of too much tissue in the wound. Although a scar may never completely disappear, laser treatments as well as carboxytherapy can greatly improve skin's appearance.
