How to Treat Your Eczema

treatment room

Eczema is a unique skin condition that’s most common in babies, although it’s estimated that 3% of the adult population still suffers from it.  Eczema is usually indicative of an allergic reaction within the body; common reactions include those that can be attributed to asthma and hay fever.  Symptoms of eczema can often include the following:

  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Scaly skin
  • Dry/thick skin
  • Skin that’s red or brown
  • Oozing and crusting (most common in babies)

The exact causes of eczema is unknown; however, skincare experts think that this skin condition is caused by the body’s immune system overreacting to these allergic reactions.  Eczema is often genetic, so you’re more likely to suffer from it if an immediate family member has it.

When you’re suffering from a skin condition like eczema, it may feel almost impossible to present a confident face to the world.  Instead of focusing on leading your meeting or having a conversation with friends, you’re too busy worried about if other people are looking at your eczema.  That’s why it’s important to seek out eczema treatments that are designed to minimize symptoms without causing additional inflammation or irritation.

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa – with locations in AR and Memphis, TN – our skincare experts understand what it takes to minimize the symptoms of eczema.  If you suffer from eczema, we may use the following treatments to help treat your skin:

  • I Peel Lightening Lift Peel Solution:  This unique solution uses lightening agents that can help reduce the redness and irritation that’s so common with eczema.  What’s more, this professional-grade facial peel can help speed up cell turnover faster, which makes it much more likely that you’ll see a reduction in your eczema symptoms.
  • Medical Grade Chemical Peels:  The chemical peels used by A Beautiful You Medical Spa only utilize fruit acids and other natural agents, which gently peel away the top layer of skin to reveal fresh and healthy new skin.  Like with the peel solution, chemical peels can help minimize the appearance of eczema over time.
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing:  These treatments help jump-start your skin’s collagen production levels, which increases cellular turnover. The end result is skin that’s less red, which can help minimize your eczema symptoms.

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, our skincare experts can help determine which is the best treatment for you based on your eczema symptoms.  To determine which facial treatment is right for you, schedule a consultation at A Beautiful You Medical Spa at one of our two locations in AR and  Memphis, TN.Our Memphis location serves Germantown and Bartlett.
