Chronic and Traumatic Skin Conditions
Chronic or Traumatic Skin Conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, shingles, diabetic ulcers, bed sores and dermatitis can cause a range of issues from mild discomfort to severe pain and embarrassment. These conditions are considered Long Term Conditions, or LTCs.
A chronic skin condition not only affects your overall health, is also affects your quality of life. Those with LTCs in other organs or systems commonly get skin disease. Some skin LTCs are associated with increased physical and psychological disease. (British Association of Dermatologists, LTC 89)
In order to understand why some skin conditions are considered chronic or traumatic, it is helpful to understand what the word actually implies. Chronic conditions in general cannot be prevented by vaccines or cured by medication, nor do they just disappear. In the UK, skin disorders are among the most common long-term conditions with more than 2,000 different diseases. Lifestyle, diet, high levels of stress, lack of exercise, environmental toxins and other chronic health issues are the most common contributors to challenging skin conditions.
Common Chronic/Traumatic Conditions Defined
In general, a chronic and traumatic skin condition is defined as having one or more of three symptoms:
- The problem lasts at least 3 months in an uninterrupted fashion.
- The problem doesn’t last 3 months but comes back over and over again for an extended period of time.
- The problem is a relatively low intensity problem that persists long term. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t a serious issue. It simply means that it isn’t an immediately life-threatening condition.
NeoGenesis for Chronic and Traumatic Skin Conditions
NeoGenesis products contain the patented S²RM® molecules that naturally heal the skin, delivering nutrient rich molecules to areas of inflammation, open sores, scales, thickened skin and abrasions. By providing the best climate for healing and calming the skin, these areas are improved and inflammation is reduced, allowing symptoms to subside.
For chronic and traumatic skin conditions, our advanced product Recovery, abundant in S²RM® molecules is the product to use. Recovery immediately begins to naturally heal and calm the skin where these conditions exist. If additional hydration is needed, follow Recovery with our Intensive Moisturizer and apply as often as needed to further calm and hydrate the skin. NeoGenesis Moisturizing Mist is a light and cooling mist that can help keep skin comfortable throughout the day. Use Recovery on cleansed skin, twice daily for as long as needed. Recovery is safe for use on all areas of the body, including around the eyes. NeoGenesis can aid in healing the skin and reducing or eliminating the inflammation and general discomfort of chronic conditions.
For ongoing comfort and to reduce the chances of the condition reappearing in the affected area, the patient may transition over to the use of our NeoGenesis Skin Serum once or twice daily, followed by the application of our Intensive Moisturizer as needed. Our S²RM® technology found in Skin Serum and the Intensive Moisturizer will continue to naturally feed nutrients into the skin, creating a healthier and stronger skin barrier.
