What Is Psoriasis?

Have you noticed red, raised, scaly patches of skin? Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes these types of symptoms commonly around the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp. These areas may itch, burn or even sting. Let your doctor know if you are experiencing anything like this, but don’t be alarmed, this disease is extremely common and well understood by doctors and specialists like us.

Why Does Psoriasis Show Up?

Psoriasis can appear randomly, but we know that genetics and the immune system play major roles in its’ development. The skin cells of people with this disease grow at an abnormally quick rate, which is the cause of the buildup of these visible lesions. Though it can appear at any age, psoriasis most commonly develops between the ages of 15 and 35. This is not contagious and won’t be transmitted from one person to the next through contact of any kind.

Here at Dermalure, We Can Help

Our specialists have created the perfect products for skin conditions ranging from psoriasis to wrinkles, aging, sun spots, and acne. Our products vary in strength and composition so we can assure that you will be able to find something that suits you. If you are experiencing psoriasis, your skin most likely needs moisture and therapy. We are here to offer precisely this. We recommend our salicylic acid peels and solutions for many of our clients with psoriasis, as it soothingly increases the amount of moisture in the skin while simultaneously dissolving the substance that causes skin cells to clump and become inflamed. We have light salicylic acid acid peels for new users and people with more sensitive skin, which help clear clogged pores and regenerate healthy skin in a non-irritating way. Our stronger peels are able to penetrate more stubborn skin, so if your skin is tough and more damaged, these may be ideal for you.

Benefits of Vitamin D

Benefits of Vitamin D – Especially In Winter

During the winter months, the lack of sun exposure causes our Vitamin D levels to significantly drop. This is because Vitamin D or the “sunshine vitamin” as it’s often called, is produced in the skin in response to sunlight. In addition to sun exposure, we can also get Vitamin D through certain foods and supplements to ensure we have adequate levels in the blood to maintain good health.

If you feel tired, worn out and achy much of the time during the winter months, you may be lacking in Vitamin D and not even know it. Below are a few positive effects Vitamin D provide to your overall health and well-being.

Vitamin D Reduces the Risk of Cancer

Numerous studies have shown that people who improve their vitamin D status enjoy a lower risk for the development of a whole host of deadly cancers by 30 to 40 percent including colorectal, breast and prostate cancer. This is because Vitamin D plays a crucial role in helping maintain cell growth when a cancer cell is developing in the body.

Strengthens the Bones

One of the key roles Vitamin D plays is that it helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus from the foods we eat, which are crucial minerals for good bone health. Just like exercise, getting enough Vitamin D is a strategy that can make the bones stronger at any age.

Protects Against Autoimmune Disease

Vitamin D is a very potent immune modulator that helps prevent autoimmune diseases like MS and inflammatory bowel disease.

Helps Protect Against the Flu

Vitamin D has been proven to fight all types of infections including influenza. It has been found that taking 1,200 units of Vitamin D during the winter time can reduce one’s risk for getting influenza by about 40 percent.

Promotes Good Skin Health

As a natural immune-booster, Vitamin D is essential to good skin health. Having sufficient Vitamin D in the body can help minimize skin conditions including eczema & acne, boost collagen production, promote elasticity, and help lessen fine lines and dark spots on the skin.

If you suspect you’re lacking in Vitamin D during the winter months due to being indoors most of the time or a poor diet, speak to your doctor. Your Vitamin D levels can easily be checked via a simple blood test. If you are deficient, your doctor can recommend dietary changes or provide you with Vitamin D supplements.

Seborrheic Keratosis

Identifying the Symptoms & How To Treat This Skin Condition

At Dermalure, we proudly provide a wide variety of highly-effective skincare products related to keratolytic therapy, known as the treatment of warts and other skin growths. These treatments are proven to work on a number of different conditions, one of these being seborrheic keratosis.

 What Is Seborrheic Keratosis?

Seborrheic keratosis is a common, noncancerous skin growth that can frequently appear on older adults. Seborrheic keratosis usually starts out as a small, rough area and can end up looking like warts, moles, or even skin cancer. Despite its similarity to melanoma, it’s not actually cancerous and won’t cause any detrimental effects that aren’t cosmetic.

Symptoms of Seborrheic Keratosis

Some of the symptoms of seborrheic keratosis include the following:

  • Seborrheic keratosis can range in size from a small fraction of an inch to over an inch.
  • They’re usually round or oval shaped.
  • They’re flat or slightly elevated and have a scaly surface.
  • It varies in color from white to black, though most are tan or brown.
  • They can be found anywhere on the body, but they most commonly appear on the chest, shoulders, and back.

Who Is at Risk?

Typically, the people who are at risk for seborrheic keratosis fall into one of these groups:

  • They are older or at least middle-aged. The likelihood of getting seborrheic keratosis increases as a person ages.
  • There is a history of seborrheic keratosis in the family.
  • They spend a lot of time out in the sun and leave their skin exposed.

When Should You See a Doctor?

It’s best to see a doctor if:

  • A growth bleeds or is irritated from when your clothing rubs against them.
  • The growth is an unnatural color such as purple or blue.
  • Many growths develop over a short period of time.
  • There’s only one growth (this condition usually causes several growths).
  • An existing growth changes in appearance.

Contact Dermalure Today!

While seborrheic keratosis is mainly a cosmetic issue and doesn’t pose any real dangers, removing this skin growth is still a viable and often preferred option. At Dermalure, we provide keratolytic therapy, such as glycolic acid, in order to treat this condition. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us online or at (877) 336-4652. We hope to hear from you soon!

Chemical Peels in the New Year

We’re nearing the end of the year, which means that people are starting to think about their New Year’s resolutions. There will be all different kinds of New Year’s resolutions, including improving your diet, your cardio, your social life, or your work ethic. Well how about improving your look – a task you can easily accomplish through the usage of chemical peels. At Dermalure, we’re proud to provide chemical peels among our many other high-quality skin care products that are designed to make you look great for the upcoming year.

Make Your New Year’s Resolution a Skin Makeover!

With the usage of our chemical peels, you can make your skin appear younger and give it a healthy and radiant glow. You simply apply the chemical peel to your skin and it will remove the outermost layers of your skin. This dead skin peels away and the new skin that regenerates is usually smoother and more-wrinkle free than the old skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. While you may need to seek professional help from a dermatologist or an esthetician to determine your type of skin, the perfect chemical peel, and how best to apply it, after you learn about its technique, it’s a simple process that you can perform by yourself with our at-home chemical peels.
