Skin Care Q&A

What is skin care?

Skin care involves any preventative or treatment techniques carried out to keep the skin healthy and lustrous, or return it to a healthier condition. The best skin care routines will include protecting the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, avoiding smoking, cleansing and shaving the skin gently, consuming a well-balanced diet, and effectively managing stress.

What should I consider for my skin care?

Your skin care routine should be focused on preventing or treating a skin condition and delaying the natural aging process. In order to adequately care for your skin across your lifespan — and enjoy a youthful appearance ― it’s important to prioritize your skin care as an essential aspect of general health and wellness.

Dr. Karbasi assesses your skin to diagnose the presence of any skin conditions, educate you on how to prevent these conditions, help you manage existing conditions, teach you strategies to achieve healthier-looking skin, and help you select skin care products that support your skin’s best health.

Dr. Karbasi has a special interest in cosmetic and skin care. He offers a range of treatment options at Avicenna Medical Clinic. Schedule an appointment with him to create a customized skin care routine built around your skin type and needs.

What are the most common skin conditions?

The skin is the body’s largest organ, providing protection to the internal workings of the body.  From birth to the geriatric years, people may suffer from a wide range of skin conditions that leave them feeling low in confidence and unhappy about their appearance.

The most common skin conditions include acne, eczema, hives, impetigo, melanoma, moles, psoriasis, rashes, rosacea, skin cancer and wrinkles. If you suspect that you are suffering from any of these skin conditions, Dr. Karbasi can help assess your case and offer treatment recommendations. Contact the clinic to meet with him.
