What Causes Blotchy Skin?

There are a number of potential causes of blotchy skin. Chemical skin irritants like the ones found in perfumes, dyes, and detergents can make blotches appear, as can the rubbing of rough fabric against the skin. Dust and animal dander are other examples of skin irritants.

Environmental factors like allergens in the air, extreme hot or cold, and strong winds are major causes of skin blotches. Skin dryness increases the risk of irritation.

Generally, patients with sensitive skin are more susceptible to the blotchiness that occurs as a result of the aforementioned factors.

Fair skin shows redness and irritation more prominently than dark skin, so those with fairer skin are more susceptible to blotchiness. Women who are experiencing fluctuations in hormone levels are more prone to this issue. One’s genes can also make them more likely to experience it.

Your Treatment Options

Cosmeceuticals are one option we offer to treat blotchy skin. These are skin products that have a higher concentration of active ingredients than those that can be found in retail stores. As they contain a higher percentage of medicinal compounds, they are considered medical grade and can only be purchased in a practice that is physician-led. We offer three of the most popular medical-grade product lines: SkinCeuticalsZO Skin Health and SkinMedica.

Hydrafacial is a treatment that can rejuvenate blotchy skin by deep cleaning and exfoliating damaged skin. By removing these, your skin’ can reveal the fresher skin underneath. In addition, it also helps improve the quality of your skin with nourishing serums designed to give you a more even toned complexion.

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a treatment that addresses discoloured areas of your complexion by utilizing the power of pulsed light energy. When these energy pulses are directed at the skin tissues, the healing response is triggered, causing an increase in collagen and elastin.

Another option to clear up blotchy skin is Sublative rejuvenation. Using this non-invasive bipolar radio frequency energy technology, we can increase the skin’s collagen production and eliminate blotchy skin. The result is a more even toned complexion.

For a different type of rejuvenation, Glacial® fx offers skin-soothing treatments with precision cooling technology. Its Glacial Gloss mode also features microdermabrasion to exfoliate and brighten the skin, while the sustained cold sensation combats inflammation and addresses pigmentation issues.
