What Are Skin Blemishes?

These conditions are usually benign lesions (non-cancerous), but can be unwanted if their location is noticeable to others, such as on the face. Age spots usually lie flush with the skin’s surface.

They appear as small round patches of darker skin that disrupt its overall even tone. Cherry angiomas and milia on the other hand, can be slightly raised from the skin’s surface.

They are also usually quite small in size, and commonly develop on the face. Prema is understanding of a person’s desire to improve their appearance, and will assess any blemish / skin lesion thoroughly before recommending the most suitable treatment option.

What Are the Causes of Skin Blemishes?

Age spots are mainly caused by exposure to the sun. An overproduction of pigment in the skin (melanin) can accumulate in an isolated spot which eventually becomes visible on the skin’s surface.

The cause of a cherry angioma is a little unclear, but it’s thought that genetics may be linked. With milia, it’s the accumulation of dead skin cells getting trapped under new skin cells that’s the cause. If they are not effectively sloughed away (exfoliated) they can harden and form a small lump.

What Is the Treatment for Skin Blemishes?

In many cases of skin blemishes, destroying the cells in the unwanted lesion will facilitate its removal from the skin’s surface. Cryotherapy is a safe and effective way of doing this, and at Prema we use the Cryopen for its precision and accuracy. One treatment session may be all that’s required to restore the skin’s even texture and tone.
