ROSACEA

Cincinnati Rosacea Treatments

Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by persistent facial redness. It can start with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people.

Over time and with continued flushing, you can develop persistent redness that can spread from the nose and cheeks to involve the entire face.

MELASMA

Cincinnati Melasma Treatments

Melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy, presents as brown to gray-brown patches on the face, most commonly on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and above the upper lip. It is most commonly seen in women and is triggered by sun exposure, hormones, and harsh skin care products that can irritate the skin. It can be one of the most frustrating skin conditions to treat because it keeps coming back.

VITILIGO

Cincinnati Vitiligo Treatments

Vitiligo causes a loss of color, or depigmentation, to the skin and hair. It can affect many places on the body including skin, hair, eyes, genitalia and the mouth. Millions of people worldwide have vitiligo, and nearly half of them develop it before they reach 21 years of age. It is not life-threatening yet at MONA Dermatology we know that it can be life-altering.

TINEA VERSICOLOR

Tinea Versicolor

Tinea versicolor is a common yeast (fungal) infection of the skin that we see more in teenagers and adults. Yeast normally lives on our skin, but in the right conditions such as in hot, humid weather, in people who have oily skin or get hot and sweaty, or in someone who has a weakened immune system the yeast can grow and develop Tinea Versicolor.

HOW CAN I TREAT VITILIGO?

The goal of most treatments is to restore lost skin color although some people choose not to treat their vitiligo.

Some of our treatment options:

  • Cosmetic options to camouflage the lost color. This includes makeup, self-tanners, and skin dyes.
  • Prescription medicines applied to the skin may return some of the lost color to your skin. Steroids and immune modulators are the most commonly prescribed topical medicines.
  • UV Light therapy may restore lost color to the skin.
  • Depigmentation removes the remaining pigment from the skin. Very few patients opt for this treatment because removing the rest of the pigment leaves a person with completely white skin. It may be an option for an adult who has little pigment left and other treatments have not worked. Removing the remaining pigment can be an effective way to even out the skin color, giving the person white skin.

We recommend scheduling a consultation so we can help you develop a treatment plan for your unique skincare needs.

HOW CAN I TREAT TINEA VERSICOLOR?

Treatment includes over the counter and prescription anti-fungal shampoos, soaps, creams or lotions using selenium sulfide, ketoconazole, or pyrithione zinc as well as oral antifungals.

With treatment, the yeast is easy to kill. The skin, however, may stay lighter (or darker) for weeks or months. The skin will eventually return to its normal color. To help even out your skin tone, you should protect your skin from the sun and not tan.
