Eczema in Young Children, Todders and Newborns

Eczema can be a disturbing skin condition for many adults and children. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes inflammation in the skin. Atopic dermatitis is one form of eczema. Dry scaly skin that appears raised, bumpy or has a rough texture like sandpaper can be difficult to live with.

Treatments include steroids, ointments, and creams. Eczema can be found in adults, but is also very common in newborn infants and toddlers. Eczema can cause discomfort and itchiness. It is advised not to itch these dry patches, because it can open up the lesion.

Eczema in Babies Can be Affected by Diet

Breastfed babies may find themselves more susceptible to developing eczema. Often times, lactating mothers try to eliminate certain foods and dairy from their diet to see if the eczema will go away. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggested that mothers who are nursing with infants at high risk of developing Atopic Dermatitis should avoid the following: peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, cow’s milk, and fish from their diets

Benefits of Photodynamic Treatment for your Skin’s Texture & Appearance

Photodynamic light therapy treatment is the latest advancement in dermatology for the improvement of one’s skin, fighting severe cases of acne. Acne, rosacea, acitinic keratosis and hyperplasia can also be targeted with this form of light therapy.

During the Procedure

A solution called Levulan is applied to the treatment area. The laser activates it, allowing the light to treat that area. It can be used to treat the face in its entirety, and not just portions of the face affected by acne or other skin conditions.

How Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) Can Treat Acne for All Ages

While acne is typically associated with adolescence, acne can also affect adults. Acne can affect one’s confidence and self-esteem, and in severe cases it can lead to painful facial lesions and cysts.

Dermatologists have developed several ways to alleviate skin acne and other skin conditions. One affective method is acne photodynamic treatment, or PDT. This is a new procedure designed by dermatologists to combat especially resistant and stubborn cases of acne with the use of light.

With photodynamic treatment, a special agent known as Levulan is applied to the skin by a dermatologist and left there for 15 to 60 minutes. Then the dermatologist uses a light of a certain wavelength to activate the solution, causing it to be absorbed by the skin and allowing the acne cells to be targeted by the light. Sebaceous hyperplasia and acne rosacea will also be targeted by the Levulan. The photodynamic treatment will decrease skin oiliness as well as clean pores while reducing their size. Pre-existing acne scars will also reduce, as will skin wrinkles. Other conditions such as sun-damaged skin with actinic keratosis can also be treated.

PDT has significant acne treating advantages over other forms of acne therapy. PDT requires no surgery and leaves no scarring, and is much less painful than other types of treatment. Also, PDT treats the entire facial area rather than just spot treating. There is some redness and skin peeling immediately following the procedure, and patients are encouraged to avoid direct exposure to the sun for 24 hours following treatment. Over the next seven to ten days, liver spots, if present, will also darken and peel away, resulting in normal skin. For best results, having 2-3 treatments at 2 to 3 week intervals is highly encouraged.

Different Types of Facial Rejuvenation

What exactly is facial rejuvenation? It is a cosmetic procedure with one goal- to tighten, lift and improve the skin’s appearance, texture and feeling. Various rejuvenation procedures are offered at LA Laser Center to revive the skin. For instance, laser treatments improve the skin by treating broken capillaries, targeting brown and age spots, redness, acne and more. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to target loose skin.

Facial rejuvenation also includes treating acne and scars on the skin including unwanted discoloration. For example, this can be done with the Fractional C02 laser.

Hydrafacials and chemical peels treat the skin in a different way. Both seek to eliminate dead skin cells and create room for new skin to grow and new collagen to develop. Microneedling also induces collagen growth. Microdermabrasion treat enlarged pores and blackheads to minimize and reduce them.
