I am male 34, I see red patches on both of my legs (lower parts - Heel/foot skin). I consulted a physician who told this is pigmented purpuric dermatosis. He also advised that there is no cure of this disease. Question - Is pigmented purpuric dermatosis really not curable? should I leave this untreated? will it be aggravated in future if I don't take any action?

A lot of teenagers face common skin problems such as acne, which leave behind scars that appear worse with time. There are many products available in medical stores to treat acne, but not all are effective. With advancements in the cosmetic industry, it is now possible to improve the appearance of the skin on the hands, neck and face. Chemical peels, where a chemical solution is applied to the skin, are used for this purpose. The chemical solution exfoliates the skin and it eventually peels off. The old skin which is wrinkled and less smooth is regenerated and the skin is now smooth and flawless. The use of chemical peels is safe and they work wonders to your skin.
Types of Chemical Peels and their Use
Chemical Peels are also known as BHA (beta-hydroxy corrosive) or AHA (alpha-hydroxy corrosive). It is a treatment that can be performed on your skin to exfoliate it. They are mainly used to attain smooth skin. The first peel is superficial. The medium peel, which is used for the second level of intensity mainly targets the damaged skin cells. The effect is used on central as well as external layers of skin mainly to remove wrinkles, freckles and age spots.
The third type of chemical peel is the deep peel which infiltrates into the skin deeply. It helps to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and spots. It is also useful in removing shallow scars as it can reach deeper and distinctive results can be attained in comparison to any other treatment. It is very important that this treatment using deep peels is done by a well-qualified cosmetic surgeon.
Conditions Treated By Chemical Peels
Skin appearance can be improved to a great extent by the use of chemical peels. These help to reduce fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes. They are also used to treat wrinkles that are caused due to aging and sun damage. Mild scars can also be removed using chemical peels and they can even treat certain types of acne. They are beneficial in reducing dark patches that occur due to pregnancy. The feel and look of the skin can be improved with these peels. The peels are very sensitive to skin and it is very important that you make use of a sunscreen every day as it protects the skin against UVB and UVA rays of the sun.
Individuals having severe wrinkles and sagging skin must not opt for chemical peels as their skin does not respond to them. In such cases, it is best to make use of surgical procedures such as facelift or laser resurfacing methods. However, it is best to consult a dermatologist surgeon in this matter to determine the best treatment. They are good anti-ageing weapons and are beneficial in treating uneven skin tone, acne prone skin and pigmentation disorders.
