Cosmetic Dermatology Common Skin Flaws

shutterstock_53683504-300x200 Cosmetic Dermatology Common Skin Flaws Houston DermatologistWhile impressive skin care practices can help a person maintain taut, smooth, and healthy skin, sun exposure and the natural process of aging will impact the skin’s appearance over time.

Aging, exposure to environmental elements, and various other factors can lead to skin problems on the face and other areas of the body.

Factors such as viruses and genetics among others cause some common skin flaws. A cosmetic dermatology specialist will have the advanced skills and expertise to address these skin conditions effectively.

Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Ngueyn, provides skin care treatments to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding communities.



Acne is one of the most common facial skin issues for teenagers. The sebaceous glands become hyperactive and manufacture excess oil. This causes the follicles to become clogged creating blackheads and whiteheads.

While acne is not usually hazardous to health and will typically resolve over time, moderate to severe acne can cause scarring. There are various acne treatment options available to patients to effectively treat this condition and prevent or reduce any acne-related scarring.



Hyperpigmentation creates brownish patches on the skin. These occur due to aging or acne. This condition can become worse with sun exposure or genetics. “Liver spots” appear as large freckles and typically manifest on the neck, hands, legs, feet, or face. A cosmetic dermatologist can help eliminate or reduce the appearance of such age spots.


Large Pores

Pores refer to small openings in the skin’s surface through which moisturizing oils are secreted. Pore size is hereditary to a certain degree. However, pores appear bigger when they contained trapped skin cells and oil. A dermatologist can recommend a suitable treatment to improve the appearance of enlarged pores.



Rosacea is a facial skin condition which causes redness and inflammation on the face. It typically affects adults with fair skin. This condition rarely resolves on its own, and in fact, worsens over time. A cosmetic dermatologist can effectively use topical or oral medicines, or advanced treatments such as laser therapy to treat rosacea.



A scar is a skin area that has a different texture and color in comparison to the skin around it. Scars develop after an injury heals, and most scars fade away over time. However, scars that occur in a visible area may remain conspicuous for a lifetime. A cosmetic dermatologist can offer treatments to improve the appearance of a scar dramatically.


Undereye Circles

Factors such as lack of sleep, heredity, diet, allergies, and sun exposure are usually behind the common skin problem of darkened skin underneath the eyes. To reduce or remove the discoloration of persistent dark undereye circles, a cosmetic dermatologist can recommend an effective treatment.



One of the most common facial skin issues as people age is the development of lines and wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles occur in areas where the skin naturally creases and folds, becoming more permanent with time.

Smoking, sun exposure, and extreme dieting-all contribute to making skin appear older than it is. A cosmetic dermatologist can perform a wide range of effective procedures and prescribe professional skin care products to restore smoother, younger looking skin.
