Skincare Concerns

SKINCARE CONCERNS

Are you breaking out?

It can be very distressing when you repeatedly have breakouts. Don’t you wish you had clear, acne-free skin? Acne (or more accurately termed, “Acne Vulgaris”) is caused by a multitude of factors such as

  • Excess oil (sebum) production
  • Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells
  • Bacterial infection (frequently the bacterium known as Propionibacterium acnes [P. acnes])
  • Inflammation of the skin

Depending on the cause, acne can be successfully treated in most cases with a combination of targeted skincare products and correction of the underlying cause(s).

Chemical peels are an effective and generally safe method employed to treat acne. A chemical peel is a simple clinic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove and exfoliate the surface skin cells (epidermis) in a controlled manner. This allows skin to regenerate, promoting skin rejuvenation from within, thereby improving the appearance and youthfulness of the skin.

Do your worry lines worry you?

Are you bogged down by stress and worries? Have these exhausted you to the point that you are developing wrinkles or fine lines that weren’t there before? You’ve tried some commercially available skincare products and they don’t seem to be helping much. So what do you do now?

Wrinkles and fine lines arise as a result of various factors such as

  • Natural ageing of skin structures and loss of skin elasticity
  • Ultra-Violet (UV) damage from sun exposure
  • Repetitive overuse of specific facial expressions (eg. frowning)
  • Smoking, excessive alcohol intake and lack of hydration 

Using a combination of targeted skincare products and correction of the underlying cause(s), wrinkles and fine lines can be successfully treated in most cases depending on the cause(s).

Chemical peels are an effective and generally safe method employed to treat early signs wrinkling skin, such as fine lines. A chemical peel is a simple clinic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove and exfoliate the surface skin cells (epidermis) in a controlled manner. This allows skin to regenerate, promoting skin rejuvenation from within, thereby improving the appearance and youthfulness of the skin.

Botulinum Toxin injection is another medical option available for the correction of wrinkles and fine lines. It is also a simple clinic procedure performed by a trained medical doctor and involves injection of Botulinum Toxin (a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum) to the muscles involved in repetitive facial expressions. Once injected, the toxin works by weakening specific muscle groups through a neuro-chemical process whereby it suppresses the activity of certain nerves supplying these muscles. This allows localised muscle relaxation, effectively smoothening the overlying skin and as a result, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

Troubled by dark spots or an uneven skin tone?

Noticed dark or hyper-pigmented spots on your face that don’t seem to fade away on their own? These could be the result of sun damage or residual marks from a recent acne flare. You may have tried using commercial skincare products that have not shown any significant improvement. So, how do you get rid of them?

Hyper-pigmentation is the result of increased melanin deposition within the skin which may appear in spots or large patches. This can be caused by various factors such as

  • Sun exposure
  • Hormonal changes
  • Post-inflammatory reactions

Depending on the cause, hyperpigmentation can be treated with targeted topical treatment such as hydroquinone, specifically selected skincare products and correction of the underlying cause(s).

Chemical peels are an effective and generally safe method employed to improve the appearance of pigmented areas on your skin. A chemical peel is a simple clinic procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove and exfoliate the surface skin cells (epidermis) in a controlled manner. This allows skin to regenerate, promoting skin rejuvenation from within, thereby improving the appearance and youthfulness of the skin.
