Complexion Problems Q & A


What are complexion problems?

Complexion problems include a variety of issues that can lead to discoloration, clogged pores, skin growths, and more. Some of the most common complexion problems both men and women — and even teens — face include:

  • Facial veins
  • Large pores
  • Oily or dry skin
  • Acne breakouts
  • Dark or light spots
  • Scars, including acne scars

Some complexion problems, such as psoriasis and eczema, lead to chronic redness, dryness, and flaking. Without proper treatment, your complexion problem or concern may continue to worsen.


When should I see a dermatologist for complexion problems?

The team at Advanced Dermatology wants to see you at the first sign of a skin abnormality. The sooner they get to the root of your condition and get you started on treatment, the quicker you can get back to smoother, vibrant, more even-toned skin. It’s particularly important to have an evaluation at Advanced Dermatology if your complexion issue is:

  • Making you feel self-conscious
  • Continuing to worsen
  • Occurring for no known reason
  • Causing pain or discomfort

If you have moles or pigmented lesions that are getting darker, growing bigger, or changing shape, your provider at Advanced Dermatology needs to know about it. These are potential early warning signs of skin cancer.


How are complexion problems treated?

Treating complexion problems depends, of course, on what’s causing them. But the caring team at Advanced Dermatology offers the latest and most advanced treatment solutions available. Your complexion treatment plan may include:

  • Prescription-strength oral or topical medications
  • Personalized laser therapy sessions
  • Microdermabrasion or chemical peel
  • Rejuvenating HydraFacial® therapy

If you have moles or lesions that are of concern, your provider can remove them surgically right in the office.

Some complexion problems are hereditary, while others are caused by environmental or lifestyle factors, or both. Your provider counsels you on how to care for your skin and prevent further issues.

No matter how minor or severe your complexion problems are, you have plenty of options for restoring beautiful, healthy skin at Advanced Dermatology.
