What is Eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a common skin condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry, and cracked. It can appear on any part of the body and is particularly common in areas with folds, such as behind the knees and elbows. Eczema is often a chronic condition and can vary in severity from mild to severe.

Types of Eczema

Eczema comes in several forms, each with its own characteristics and triggers:

  • Atopic Dermatitis: The most common form of eczema, often linked to allergies and asthma.
  • Contact Dermatitis: Triggered by contact with irritants or allergens.
  • Dyshidrotic Eczema: Characterized by small blisters on the hands and feet.
  • Nummular Eczema: Notable for coin-shaped spots on the skin.
  • Seborrheic Dermatitis: Affects oily areas of the body and can cause scaly patches.

What are the Main Causes of Eczema?

The exact cause of eczema is not known, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Triggers can include:

  • Genetic Factors: A family history of eczema, allergies, or asthma can increase the likelihood of developing eczema.
  • Irritants: Everyday substances like soaps, detergents, and fragrances can trigger flare-ups.
  • Allergens: Pollen, pet fur, and dust mites are common allergens that can provoke symptoms.
  • Environmental Factors: Changes in weather, icy and dry conditions, can worsen eczema.
  • Stress: Emotional stress can exacerbate eczema symptoms.

Treatments for Eczema at Pulse Light Clinic

At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer innovative treatments to help manage and alleviate eczema symptoms:

LED Phototherapy

LED Phototherapy is an effective treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to reduce inflammation, alleviate itching, and improve skin barrier function. This non-invasive therapy can help to decrease the reliance on topical steroids and enhance the skin’s overall health.

Hydrafacial

Our Hydrafacial treatment is tailored for sensitive skin types dealing with eczema. This gentle procedure deeply cleanses, extracts, and hydrates the skin using nourishing serums that are specially formulated to reduce irritation and promote healing.

How to Prevent Eczema?

Managing eczema effectively involves both treatment and preventive strategies:

  • Moisturize Regularly: Keeping the skin well-moisturized helps to maintain its barrier function and prevent dryness.
  • Avoid Triggers: Identify and avoid substances that trigger your eczema.
  • Gentle Skincare Products: Use hypoallergenic and fragrance-free products to reduce the risk of irritation.
  • Manage Stress: Incorporate stress management techniques such as yoga or meditation into your routine.
