Moles are very common. Most people have one or more, especially people with light skin. Moles are concentrations of pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) in your skin. Moles usually emerge in childhood or adolescence, and may change in size and color as you grow. New moles commonly appear at times when your hormone levels change, especially in pregnant women. Our skin is our largest and most visible organ. Most people feel self-conscious about their moles. If you are contemplating mole removal, we would like to introduce you to Eskata!
Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that causes the immune system to overproduce skin cells up to 10 times faster than normal. Psoriasis is frequently referred to as a “T-cell mediated disease.” In psoriasis, these cells inhabit the skin causing a disruption in normal skin cell growth and maturation. The result is red plaques with silvery scale most commonly located on the elbows, knees, and scalp, but can develop anywhere on the body. Learn about some of the best treatment options for Psoriasis.
Eczema is a medical term that is used to describe a skin condition which causes irritation of the epidermis, the outer layer of a person’s skin. The most common symptoms of this skin condition are skin redness, dryness, crusting, or splitting of the skin.

Cold air, wind, and sun further dry out the skin, which is already suffering. Learn how to treat these winter Eczema flare-ups.
Laser skin resurfacing is a well-known skin care procedure performed to improve skin texture and appearance. It is especially beneficial for reducing the negative appearance of acne, scars, deep wrinkles, and other unwanted skin defects. The treatment is most effective on facial areas and is an effective way to give the skin a tighter, smoother looking surface. The way it works is by removing damaged skin cells layer by layer. Once the damaged skin is removed, newer, healthier skin cells begin to form in their place.
