If you have a skin condition, you not only have to cope with physical symptoms. You also have to deal with the stress that comes with having the condition. Thankfully, most skin conditions can get better with a customized treatment plan.
What are customized treatment plans?
There are many creams, lotions, and ointments on the market to treat skin conditions like acne, melasma, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. However, the treatments all have one thing in common: they are not designed to suit your individual skin type and skin condition. Nor do they take into account other health issues you may have. At the end of the day, there is no one solution that suits everybody. Generic creams and lotions do not necessarily contain all of the best ingredients for your skin condition, and perhaps more importantly, they will not necessarily have the right balance and concentration of ingredients that are best suited to your individual skin.
Conversely, customized treatment plans are based on your specific skin type and needs. Furthermore, if you have a unique skin condition, you can potentially have a specially formulated professional product created via a customized treatment plan. With Nava MD, you simply fill out an online questionnaire about your skin condition and other health issues. A clinician then reviews your answers. If approved for treatment, a dermatologically designed cream or other product will be created to perfectly suit your precise and individual requirements. Now, let’s take a look at some of the most common skin conditions that can benefit from customized treatment.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions. Although it mostly affects teenagers, people of any age can experience acne. The good news is customized skincare treatment plans can help you get rid of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.
The skin condition known as melasma is common to women; especially women who are pregnant, who undergo hormone replacement treatment, or who take oral contraceptives. The condition causes brown or gray discoloration on areas of the face like the cheekbones, nose, and upper lip. Melasma typically gets worse when you are exposed to the sun. While the discoloration usually goes away after a few months, you can speed up the recovery process with a customized treatment plan.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, skin sensitivity, inflammation, and sometimes bumps and pimples on your forehead and face. Rosacea typically comes and goes and can be aggravated by things like an increased blood flow to the blood vessels in your skin. So, when you eat spicy foods, drink alcohol, sit in the hot sun, or are highly stressed, you could experience rosacea. If left untreated, rosacea can worsen over time. While it can be treated with over-the-counter medications and prescription antibiotics, if you have persistent rosacea, you should consider a customized treatment plan to reduce flare-ups.
Although hyperpigmentation is usually harmless, the condition involves having patches of skin that are darker in color than the surrounding skin, which nobody wants. The older you get, the more chance you have of getting hyperpigmentation. The condition is caused when an excess amount of melanin forms deposits in your skin. Sun damage can cause hyperpigmentation. While the condition does not cause pain or irritability, most people would prefer not to have dark patches of skin. So, if you experience hyperpigmentation, you may want to solve the problem with customized treatment.
