Below are just a few of the many conditions we treat in our clinics.

Acne Treatments

If you have been using over-the-counter products containing ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid without success or, have a lot of acne, including cysts or nodules, it is time to see a skin care expert for your condition.

Seeing a Radiant Complexions skin care specialist for acne can reduce and prevent breakouts. When you meet with one of our professionals, they will make recommendations for professional treatments that are best for your skin. There are also a variety of cosmetic dermatological treatments, including acne laser, chemical peels or microdermabrasion, that are available to help return your skin to its radiant appearance.

Tip: It may take several weeks to see significant results while using professional acne products at home. Use the products consistently and do not stop using them once you see results. This will help prevent any future breakouts.

Allergic Reactions

For mild rashes and irritations, you should be able to treat the condition at the home with over-the-counter medications. However, if the rash persists after treatment at home and is accompanied by hives, red blotchy skin, or fever, you may need to make an appointment for a professional dermatology consultation.

Some of the common things that can cause allergic skin reactions include:

  • Poison ivy
  • Nickel
  • Clothing fabric
  • Belts
  • Latex
  • Hair dyes
  • Citrus fruits
  • Fragrances used in soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc.
Tip: Try to wash the irritated skin with mild soap and cold water to remove the substance that could be irritating the skin. Then leave the irritated skin exposed to air as often as possible.

Eczema

Symptoms for eczema include dry, itchy and red skin caused by inflammation. Skin can even become cracked and leathery and outbreaks can occur on any part of the body. These patches of dry, itchy and thickened skin usually appear on the hands, face, neck and legs. Children are often affected in the knees and elbow areas.

If you have an itchy rash or inflammation that hasn’t responded to a week of over-the-counter treatment, or you develop blisters on your skin, it may be time to schedule an appointment with your local Radiant Complexions skin care specialist.

Tip: When experiencing an eczema outbreak, be sure to limit contact with any skin irritants and clean the area daily with a hypoallergenic soap. Then, moisturize liberally after bathing. You can also apply a non-prescription steroid cream such as hydrocortisone.

Excessive Sweating

Many people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. Most often, they sweat from their palms, feet, underarms, or head. While the rest of the body remains dry, one or two areas may drip with sweat.

Common treatments include:

  • Antiperspirants
  • Botox Injections
  • Prescription Medicine
  • Qbrexza (a medicated towelette)
Tip: You can use deodorant in more places than your underarms. Try applying it to your hands, feet and hairline if necessary.

Fungal Infections

Fairly common fungal skin infections like athlete’s foot, yeast infections, ringworm and jock itch can be bothersome. They are caused by a microscopic fungus and can be contagious but are easily treatable.

Many fungal skin infections can be cleared up with anti-fungal creams or medications. However, if over-the-counter creams have not provided you with relief, or if the infection is cracked, oozing or bleeding, schedule an appointment at one of our clinics.

Tip: Many skin fungal infections are contagious through direct contact, so you can prevent infections by wearing shoes in public showers. You should also continue treatment after the infection goes away to prevent it from returning.

Genital Herpes

Herpes is an extremely common sexually transmitted infection (STI). There are two major types of herpes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 herpes is often called oral herpes or cold sores. It generally infects the mouth but can cause genital infections in some cases. Type two herpes is known as genital herpes and causes most of the cases of genital infections involving herpes, but it can also cause oral symptoms like type one herpes. 

There is no cure for herpes, but there are treatments that can help prevent outbreaks or make them less severe. Treatment can also make it less likely you will spread the disease to your sexual partner.

Tip: Most people who have contracted one sexually transmitted disease have another STD. If you think you have herpes, it’s best to get tested for other STDs as well.

Moles

While most adults have many moles by adulthood, most moles are harmless. If a mole is not bothersome and is not changing in shape, color, appearance or texture during your regular skin care checks, there is no need to worry or to have it removed. However, if you are bothered by a mole and the way it impacts your appearance, or have concerns a mole might be cancerous, call your local Radiant Complexions today to learn more about mole removal.
 
Ask your Radiant Complexions Dermatology expert to perform a mole check and be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as you notice any differences or changes in your skin’s appearance.

Tip: If your mole(s) is itching or bleeding, it may be cause for concern. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist in order to get a skin screening.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that results in the body’s skin cells growing too quickly without shedding the old cells. It can cause thick and patchy skin, usually found on the knees, elbows, back and scalp.

Seeing a skin care expert about your psoriasis can help to keep your condition from getting worse and can minimize the symptoms. Ask your Radiant Complexions skin care consultant what treatment options are available (including prescriptions, creams or fractional laser treatments) to minimize symptoms and to improve your skin's appearance. 

Tip: Psoriasis often runs in families, so if you are experiencing any similar symptoms as your loved one with psoriasis, you may want to see one of our specialists.

Shingles

While most common in older adults, if you have ever had chicken pox, you can get shingles.  You may have a skin rash that turns into blisters, which may turn yellow or bloody before they scab and heal. 

While the shingles rash can clear up after a few weeks, seeing your Radiance Complexions Dermatology team is still recommended. Not only can they make you more comfortable, but without treatment, additional symptoms such as pain and tingling may last for months or years if left untreated.

Tip: If you are 50 years or older, you may want to consider the Shingles vaccine which can prevent older individuals and those with weakened immune systems from contracting the infection.

Warts

Most warts will go away within months or years on their own. While some self-treatments for warts are available without a prescription, you may want to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to be sure that you have a wart. Many warts can look similar to skin cancers, which require diagnosis and treatment by a skincare professional.
 
Your Radiant Complexions dermatology professional can determine whether you do have a wart and can make recommendations for possible treatments or removals, if needed.

Tip: While warts are harmless, they are contagious and you can get warts by touching an infected area on someone else, as well as by coming in contact with infected household items. So, it’s important to avoid picking at warts, and to use proper hand washing precautions after touching an infected area.
