Wound healing in adult skin, a complex process involving many cell types and processes almost invariably results in scar tissue formation and wound induration in adult skin. Scarring is associated with inflammation, surgical and heat wounds, and skin infections, resulting in the secretion of inflammatory cell stimulants, and growth factors.
You may have unwanted redness on your cheeks, nose, forehead or chin. It may be associated with pustules or enlargement of the oil glands (sebaceous hyperplasia). Skin may be overly sensitive, and become flushed during exercise or extreme emotion. You may also have visible blood vessels around the nose and cheeks.
Ultraviolet light exposure, whether the result of excessive sunlight exposure or exposure to tanning salons, may cause both acute and chronic damage to the skin through both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation.
Clogged pores may result in inflammation of the hair follicles. When your pores are clogged, the sebum in the oil/sebaceous glands cannot drain to the skin surface. Consequently, the bacteria in the blocked oil glands accumulate, and attracts pus cells, eventually creating unwanted inflamed, porous, skin appearance.
In the case of skin that has abnormally red and scaly symptoms, studies have shown an increased presence of the enzyme, Phosphorylase Kinase (PhK), as a result of a defective gene on the distal end of the 17th chromosome (Heng MCY et al. Br J Dermatol 1994; 130:298-306).
In addition to your doctor's prescribed regimen for heat sensitive skin, we believe Psoria Gold® curcumin gel may aid in slowing down the production of the cell stimulants and growth factors which contribute to the unwanted appearance of heat or laser exposed skin.
