Acne is caused as a result of the mixing of sweat, bacteria and oil on the skin that clogs the pores. Whiteheads and blackheads also fall under this category. Acne not only leaves scars for long but also reduces the self-esteem of an individual.
There are several medications and medical procedures to treat acne and its scars. Skin clinics offer treatments depending on the cause and degree of the breakouts. There are different therapies for mild, moderate, severe acne or face and body acne on the basis of degree and origin respectively.
Pigmentation makes the skin look older, dull and patchy. It occurs because of many problems and sun exposure is one of them. UVA and UVB are two types of rays that the sun emits. UVA burns the epidermis i.e. the upper layer of the skin and causes sunburns. UVB can penetrate deeper into the skin inducing melanocytes (melanin i.e. pigment producing cells) to produce excess of melanin.
Skin clinics’ approach to the treatment of pigmentation depends on the intensity and cause of pigmentation. They offer therapies for superficial pigmentation, deeper pigmentation and melasma. Dark circles and puffiness are also treated at these clinics. Their services include facials, laser therapies or topical application of crèmes or ointments.
Melasma is a type of pigmentation that leads to brown to gray-brown patches on the face. These are caused because of exposure to sun in summers. They appear on cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, chin and above upper lip. Women are affected by melasma more than men. It is quite common during pregnancies hence, known as the mask of pregnancy. Dermatologists suggest using sunscreens and hats while going out in summers.

Fans, showers and air conditioning add more to your comfort; but Skin clinics will help you get rid of it.
