Acne is an inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous glands that usually occurs during adolescence but can be seen throughout life.
There are several types of acne, ranging from comedones (blackheads) to cystic inflammations. The causes of acne are multifactorial, including genetics, diet, skin care regimens, infections, and hormonal issues.
Rosacea is a skin condition that has multiple origins (heredity, environment, diet, skin care regimen and aging). Usually Rosacea appears in the mid-twenties but the frequency of outbreaks increases with age and sun exposure. The symptoms are usually the following: flushing of the face, breakout of papules, a dry skin appearance, and broken blood vessels. Because this is a skin condition and not a disease the goal is remission of the symptoms, not to "cure" it.
Broken capillaries, also known as "spider veins" can appear on the face (with or without Rosacea), and/or legs. Treatments are available, and usually several treatments are needed to achieve resolution of the spider veins.

Regular "mole/lesion checks" should be performed by a general practitioner, dermatologist, or surgeon (Head and Neck/Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon; Plastic Surgeon) trained in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers. Any "suspicious" moles or lesions should then be excised or biopsied. Dr. Gaboriau regularly performs full face and body mole/lesion examinations as well as any necessary excisions and/or biopsies. Both the examination and treatment(s) are covered by insurance.
