Hairy spots on the face are more common among women than men, but women who are sensitive to the sun have higher rates of hair loss.
Hairy patches are a common side effect of acne, and women with dark circles under their eyes have more acne than their peers who don’t have dark circles.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss occurs when the skin loses the protective barrier that keeps hair from growing into the hair follicle, which is the hair shaft.
Hairs lose their shape as they age and lose their elasticity.
Hair loss also occurs in people with cystic acne, a type of acne that affects the skin’s outermost layer of cells called the epidermis.
These cells are normally responsible for protecting the hair, but they can lose their protective barrier when exposed to high levels of heat.
If they lose their barrier, the cells may also die.
Some experts say it’s important to avoid sun exposure while developing the disease.
In addition, there are many factors that can affect hair loss, including the age of the skin, gender, body type, the number of years since previous acne treatment, and whether the skin is oily or dry.
“Some of the things that we don’t know about are how many times we have to tan the skin to get rid of the follicles and how much heat it takes to kill it off,” said Dr. John K. Dickson, chairman of dermatology at the Hoover Al, a Broward County dermatologist, who specializes in skin care.
The best way to avoid hair loss is to reduce sun exposure.
“We don’t want people to think that sun exposure is a panacea,” Dickson said.
“I don’t think that’s true for everyone, but for those who are at risk, it can be a really good thing.”
What are the symptoms of cystic or acne?
Some of the most common symptoms are dry, rough or rough and scaly skin, unevenly shaped hair or dark circles on the cheeks, forehead and chin.
“These are common symptoms in people who have had some sort of skin condition and don’t necessarily have an underlying condition,” said Dickson.
Some of those people may also have mild, if not severe, acne.
But if you or someone you know has had cystic and/or acne, “there is some good news,” Dison said.
Cystic acne is usually not an issue if you’ve already had skin cancer or other problems.
If you have cystic, it may be an indication that you are at higher risk of getting acne or scarring, so you should check with your dermatologist about any acne and/ or acne scars you have.
The condition can also be caused by a problem with your reproductive system.
If the skin in your upper arm or under the skin of your face is discolored, or if the skin around the eyes or on the chin is a bit darker than usual, that may be a sign of cystitis.
When you have a cystic cyst or a scar that looks like a cyst on your chin, there may be cyst damage or inflammation in your vagina, according to Dickson’s office.
If your doctor has a history of cysts or scar tissue, they may be able to treat cysts in a more invasive way, like a laser or other surgery.
The doctor may also consider using a skin conditioner to clear up cysts.
Other signs of cytic acne include: dry, scaly or uneven skin
