Acne is a skin problem that starts when oil and dead skin cells clog up your pores. When you have just a few red spots or pimples, you have a mild form of acne. Severe acne can mean hundreds of pimples (blackheads, blemishes, whiteheads) that can cover the face, neck, chest and back. Acne can also be big, solid cystic bumps that are painful.

Acne is very common among teens but many adults also suffer from adult onset acne, as a result of hormones and right before menstrual periods.

Dry/Dehydrated Skin

Dry skin is a skin type. If you have less protective oil in the skin cells it leaves a tight, scaly sensation. A common problem among mature skin, dryness can also be caused by a hormone imbalance, an underactive thyroid, untreated dehydrated skin or simply genetic.

Dehydrated skin is a skin condition. In other words, it’s temporary and more treatable than dry skin. Dehydration is often caused by external elements such as weather or harsh products. Dehydrated skin commonly feels flaky, loose and itchy. It can be caused by over exfoliating, poor diet (i.e. not eating enough water-rich vegetables, too much caffeine and alcohol intake), harsh cleansers, cold weather, sun exposure and other environmental factors.

Dullness of Complexion

When the natural color of your skin becomes dull it may suggest that you are tired or ill. It can also make you look older than you really are. Fig offers skin care products and services to help you restore a healthy, more youthful glow to your face.

Melasma

Melasma is a tan or dark skin discoloration. Although it can affect anyone, melasma is common in women, especially pregnant women and those taking oral or patch contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. Other rare causes include:

  • Pre-menopausal women due to enhanced surges in certain hormones
  • Women who live in regions with intense sun exposure
  • Thyroid Disease
  • Overproduction of melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) brought on by stress

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema (redness) and sometimes pimples. Rosacea affects both sexes but is almost three times more common in women with a peak age of onset between 30 and 60.

Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose or forehead, but can also affect the neck, chest, ears and scalp.

Skin Discoloration

The top layer of your skin is called the epidermis which contains cells called melanocytes. These cells produce the pigment melanin when you’re exposed to the sun. Melanin has many functions but most importantly it helps to block the sun’s harmful rays. When you tan and your skin turns brown, that’s the melanin working to protect the layers of your skin.

Skin discoloration can have many causes such as sun damage/overexposure to the sun, side effects from medications and age.

Sun Damage

Overexposure to the sun’s harmful rays can lead to sun damaged skin and the long term effects may not appear for many years. Too much sun exposure may speed up skin aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Treatment for sun damaged skin depends on which symptoms are present.

Freckles are clusters of light brown discoloration on your skin. Although many are genetic, they often become more pronounced after long exposure to the sun. While mostly harmless, they can appear unattractive as you age.

Scars

Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the process of wound repair in the skin, therefore, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. There are different types of scars. Some are raised, some are pitted from acne or chicken pox, even stretch marks are considered a form of scarring.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. Stretch marks can be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, etc. They typically first appear as reddish or purple lines but tend to gradually fade to a lighter shade.

The definition of crepey is wrinkled like crepe paper. As we age our skin gets looser and loses elasticity but there are way to correct and reverse this condition. We always recommend being proactive versus reactive and we offer different services and products to best suit each client.

Wrinkles

Wrinkles are creases, folds or ridges in the skin. Most commonly, wrinkles begin to appear as we get older. They tend to occur as a result of facial expressions, sun damage, smoking, and dehydration as well as a number of other factors.

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. As we age, our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Our skin’s ability to protect itself from damage decreases as we age as well. Thus, eventually, wrinkles, creases and lines form on our skin. In addition to the factors mentioned above, a person’s genetic makeup may also influence the extent of our wrinkles as well as when and where wrinkles start appearing.

Desired Fullness / Volume Loss?

Facial fillers can be used to replace the volume that we lose over time in our facial features. At fig, our philosophy is in a “believable beauty.” We all want to look younger and refreshed but this doesn’t have to mean enlarging your features to the point of looking different. We offer many options to enhance your facial features with a natural look.

Normal aging, genetics, reduced collagen production, reduced muscle tone and lifestyle factors are among the most common causes of unwanted skin laxity. Common areas include: jowls, cheeks, neck, buttocks, abdomen, knees, elbows, eyelids and hands.

Leg Veins

Visible leg veins are a common problem for aging women. Surgical vein removal may leave scarring, put you at risk for infection and involve a lengthy recovery.

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure using microinjections to treat unsightly spider veins and reticular veins with little to no downtime. This treatment involves microinjections of a mild solution into the affected vein which irritates the vessel wall and causes the vein to seal and eventually disappear.

Hair Growth

Hair grows almost everywhere and many times in places we don’t want hair! Unsightly hair removal is possible with laser hair removal. Depending on your type of hair and skin color, multiple treatments can provide long term reduction. The number of treatments depends on various things such as the area of the body being treated, skin color, coarseness of hair, etc.
