6 Skin Concerns and What to Do About Them

Picture the most beautiful celebrity you can think of. They might have piercing eyes, high cheekbones, and of course — flawless skin. Clear, dewy skin is one of the most desirable beauty traits.

Did you know your skin is the largest organ of your body? As the largest organ, it’s also prone to over 3,000 possible skin disorders and many aging skin concerns. 

At Shantique MedSpa, located in Torrance, California, we provide a variety of treatments to help address skin concerns and keep you looking years younger. Here are some of the common skin concerns and what you can do to improve them.


Expressions accompany language and help us convey emotion. After years of smiling and frowning, you might notice lines and wrinkles etched into your skin. Although wrinkles are a normal part of getting older, many people wish to get rid of them.

BOTOX is the best way to diminish wrinkles and fine lines. This injectable is derived from the bacterium Clostridium, a neurotoxic protein that is lethal in large doses, but extremely safe when applied by a skilled injector. In just twenty minutes, Shahinaz Soliman can erase years from your appearance with results that last for 3-4 months.

Shahinaz Soliman uses a series of injections to smooth away wrinkles in areas like:

Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment with over 7.4 million procedures performed in 2018.


Hyperpigmentation is a term that describes a patch of skin that is darker than its surrounding. It generally occurs in three different types including sunspots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

BroadBand Light (BBL)™ by Sciton® is the most powerful IPL device available. Radiating a variety of different wavelengths, BBL breaks apartment pigment and encourages your body’s natural healing system to provide smoother, better-looking skin.

BBL can safely improve:

Most patients need 2-4 treatments about a month apart to get the results they want.

Dull skin

Is your skin starting to look lifeless? Stress, pollution, and years of beauty products can start to take a toll on our skin leaving it dull.

Microneedling is one of the best ways to rejuvenate your skin for a healthy glow again. Using a dermaroller, Dr. Soliman creates tiny lesions in your skin to encourage cellular regeneration. This process also ramps up your collagen and elastin production to give you a beautiful skin tone and texture.


Acne most commonly occurs in teenagers, but many adults have it, too. Instead of hating your skin, you can undergo a chemical peel to improve its appearance. 

Chemical peels come in a variety of different kinds, ranging from mild to deep intensity. When you come in for a chemical peel, your skin technician applies a chemical solution to your skin that promotes a controlled trauma, causing your skin to peel over the next 2-5 days. 

Once your skin has fully healed over the next few weeks, you’ll notice an improvement in your acne and other skin conditions like fine lines, age spots, and dull skin.

Sun damage

Tanning without SPF might have seemed like a good idea when you were younger. But now as wrinkles, sagging skin, and sunspots show up, you might have wished you acted differently.

Luckily, the Halo laser uses two different light wavelengths to heal your skin from the inside out. Targeting beyond just the dermis, the Halo laser delivers powerful skin rejuvenation with results that last for years.

Lost facial volume

No one wants fat, but it’s actually the key to a youthful physique. As we age, we lose the healthy fat in our face and the protein structure here starts to break down. This leads to lost facial volume like under-eye hollows, thin lips, and sunken cheeks.

Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive way to restore facial volume in areas that have naturally aged. By injecting a gel-like substance underneath your skin, dermal fillers give a more supple, younger-looking appearance. Fillers can also be used to enhance the natural contours of your face.

Your face is your most important feature, so it’s important to take care of your skin. Call 310-530-7244 to schedule your skin care treatment or book online.
