SKIN INJURIES

Dark spots Female external genitalia

Genital Whitening

The female external genitalia, the perianal region, the inner thighs are not exposed to the sun, however they can be stained for different reasons:

  • The skin phototype of the patient has an important role. Patients with dark skin have a greater chance of staining.
  • Birth control hormones increase the chances of hyperpigmentation.
  • Pregnancy too.
  • Diseases with hormonal disorder or polycystic ovarian disease.
  • Waxing with hot wax or epilation with intense pulsed light.
  • Excess weight can promote hyperpigmentation due to increased friction.
  • Tight clothing can also produce stains by friction, rubbing.
  • The passage of time favors hyperpigmentation due to the sum of these factors.

The darkening of the labia majora, the perigenital area, pubis and perianal region affects women psychologically and can cause a loss of confidence and self-esteem when having sex or simply wearing a bathing suit.

Morphea

 

La esclerodermia es una enfermedad autoinmune de etiología desconocida, más frecuente en mujeres.

El término Esclerodermia significa esclerosis o endurecimiento de la piel. La afección puede ser localizada o sistémica.

Tipos de Morfea

La esclerodermia localizada también llamada Morfea puede tener distintas formas, por ejemplo:

  • Gotas: lesiones pequeñas, superficiales, con muy poca induración y bordes bien definidos.
  • Placas: lesiones de extensión diversa, induradas, de color violáceo.
  • Linear: bandas localizadas sobre todo en los miembros y la cara. La piel se ve indurada y deprimida.

La morfea al involucionar puede sufrir cambios de color, ya sea hiperpigmentaciones o hipopigmentaciones, también se observan lesiones vasculares.

La Morfea suele afectar los tejidos profundos generando depresiones antiestéticas.

Durante años el Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra ha trabajado tanto en actividad hospitalaria como en Hoogstra Centros Médicos tratando esta enfermedad y las secuelas estéticas que produce.

Hoy en día contamos con tecnología láser que nos permite mejorar nuestros resultados y ayudan al paciente a verse y sentirse mejor.

Spots on the lips

Clinical picture

Dark spots on the lips are often benign, occur more frequently in white-skinned patients, are generally single lesions on the lower lip, and are caused by sun exposure.

Treatment

El tratamiento más efectivo y menos traumático es el Láser N D Yag 1064- 532 Helios.
Aunque el melanoma de labio es poco frecuente, este tipo de lesiones deben ser descartadas antes de realizar el tratamiento.
Otras lesiones frecuentes en los labios son las vasculares, producidas por el traumatismo que tiene el labio inferior con los dientes. Algunas veces son accidentales y otras se producen por la costumbre que el paciente tiene de morderse el labio inferior.

Las pigmentaciones raciales, una línea oscura que se extiende en la mucosa del labio inferior y superior en pacientes de piel oscura, es también motivo de consulta frecuente y desaparece o se atenúa luego de un par de sesiones con láser Helios modalidad 1.064.

Otras lesiones pigmentadas de los labios

  • Si la pigmentación se da en ambos labios, es difusa y el paciente es joven hay que pensar en una pigmentación racial o un síndrome de Peutz Jegher.
  • Si la pigmentación se da en ambos labios, es difusa y el paciente es adulto hay que pensar en enfermedad de Adison, metales pesados o enfermedad de Kaposi. También puede ser producidas por un proceso inflamatorio local, en fumadores o por ciertas drogas.
  • Si la Lesión es local, de color rojo o azul, hay que pensar en un hemangioma, lentigo solar o nevo pigmentado.
  • Si la lesión es local de color azul o gris hay que pensar en un nevo azul.

Estas lesiones deben ser evaluadas por dermatólogos.
Nuestro equipo de dermatólogos está capacitado para hacer un adecuado diagnóstico y tratamiento de cada una de estas patologías.
