Common Skin Problems and How to Treat Them

Have you been dealing with a problematic skin condition that your go-to products can’t touch? If so, you’re not alone! According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in four Americans is affected by a skin condition. We’ve put together a list of common skin problems and how to treat them so you can look and feel your best no matter what comes your way!

We all have insecurities we’d like to hide, but at Elite Medi Spa, we want to help you get to the root of the problem. Let’s look at some of the most common skin conditions and solutions!


As we age, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, which causes wrinkles and the appearance of dull skin. At our office in Bend, you can find various options to help transform your skin’s overall look and feel and take years off of your face.

PiXel8-RF Microneedling

PiXel8-RF Microneedling is one of the newest and safest radiofrequency (RF) microneedling devices. This high-tech system gives you a non-surgical option to tighten your skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles. 

The PiXel8-RF system uses RF energy and tiny, minimally invasive microneedles to put heat deep into your skin. This process stimulates collagen production and gives you smoother skin with no downtime. 

PiXel8-RF Microneedling is safe for every skin type and texture to fight the signs of aging. You’ll even start to see results after just one treatment.

Viva Diamond Polar

Viva Diamond Polar is a quick, non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that tightens skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Diamond Polar utilizes a patented combination of two technologies to improve your skin – radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). It’s great for your face, neck, chest, and hands to achieve and maintain tighter skin and a more defined, contoured appearance.


One of the most crucial skincare rules is to apply sunscreen every day, even if you’re only outdoors long enough to walk to your car. However, many people often forget to use this essential product, resulting in sun damage. At Elite Medi Spa, we offer treatments to address the brown spots caused by sun damage and aging. 

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

IPL, or Photofacial, uses light therapy to target signs of sun damage, including brown spots, freckles, and redness. IPL uses technology similar to a laser to penetrate the skin and break down pigment that creates unwanted color. 

IPL can give you smoother skin and more even pigmentation with no downtime. Results can last from six months to a year, and with bi-annual treatments, you can maintain your glowing skin long-term.

ZO Skin Health

Created by Dr. Zein Obagi, a dermatologist and world-renowned skincare expert, ZO Skin Health is a skincare system that bridges the gap between medispa treatments and daily facial care. Obagi’s revered collection of products cleanse, exfoliate, tone, treat and protect every skin type. There is a solution to keep your skin healthy and glowing, from acne and aging to sun damage and hyper-pigmentation. We’ll help you find the right ZO products for your skin goals when you visit our office.

Hollywood Facial

A Hollywood Facial is much more advanced than the series of creams and exfoliation that comes to mind. This 75-minute treatment consists of a carbon mask and Q-switched laser treatment that exfoliates and resurfaces your skin. 

Your provider will start by applying a black carbon mask to your skin. Next, we’ll use a laser to heat the carbon and help it penetrate the skin. The Hollywood Facial helps to even skin tone, repair sun damage, and leave you glowing. 


Skin peels are great for treating wrinkles, discoloration, and dull complexion. PRX-T33 is changing the way we see facial peels with a no-downtime option to rejuvenate your skin. 

Also known as the “no-peel peel,” PRX-T33 acts as a bio-stimulator without damaging the outer layer of your skin. We typically recommend four treatments to get the best results with maintenance every six to 12 months. 

Common Skin Problems and How to Treat Them


Many women experience the lumpy, bumpy appearance of cellulite. Despite diet and exercise, most find it just won’t go away. We offer non-surgical solutions to cellulite. 

NovaThread Lift

The NovaThreat Lift is a non-surgical procedure that can subtly lift your neck and face and stimulate collagen production. Your provider will use needles that are pre-loaded with PDO threads to inject the area you want to treat. After removing the needles, the threads will stay in place to give your skin a tighter appearance. 

The Novathread Lift is a great option if you want natural-looking results with no downtime. Your results will last between 12 and 18 months, so you can enjoy a more youthful appearance for a year or more before scheduling another treatment.

YAG Skin Rejuvenation

Skin resurfacing with the Erbium Yag laser is a minimally-invasive procedure to remove damaged skin, revealing new skin with an improved tone and texture. The treatment also improves the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and sun damage.

The laser gently eliminates broken capillaries and other visible vascular structures from your skin while restoring your skin tone and color. This procedure is completely comfortable and takes around half an hour to complete. You may experience some pinkness after treatment, but it will subside shortly and leave you with beautiful results.
