SKIN + BODY CONDITIONS

Skin Conditions

While the natural tendency of our skin to succumb to aging is inevitable, we can control the damage we receive from the sun’s harmful rays by limiting our contact with the sun, and wearing protective sunblock. Over-exposure to the sun ages the skin prematurely, and also is responsible for skin cancers. UV radiation causes skin tissue to lose its ordinary elasticity, resulting in sagging, tired skin that is depleted of moisture and resilience.

Sun damage also drains our skin of its collagen, an important protein in the human body that is responsible for the skin’s suppleness and youthfulness. Collagen works like a hydrating gel encasing the cells, providing a healthy glow to the complexion. When it is absent, the skin becomes rough, dull and hollow. If sun damage continues, it can even trigger the skin cells to begin reproducing at an abnormal rate, which we know as cancer.

Excessive sun exposure can cause the over-production of melanin, the skin’s pigment, creating color irregularities in the complexion, which may induce self-consciousness. The skin can even get quite dark as in over-tanning. While those with lighter skin are most at risk for the dangers of sun damage, even people with darker skin can receive harm from the sun’s rays.

Rooted at the base of each facial hair follicle is an oil gland that produces the appropriate amount of secretion to keep the skin healthy and glowing. When these hair follicle roots become saturated with dirt, dead cells, debris or makeup, the oil builds up, creating a pimple. Sometimes these growths fill with bacteria, making their spread throughout the skin cells even worse. They may mushroom to become pustules, lesions, cysts or nodules.

An all too common skin concern amongst both men and women is uneven skin texture. Sometimes this is due to specific skin problems such as rosacea or acne, but it can also be a product of sun damage, ageing or the result of using the wrong skincare products. Uneven skin texture is often more prominent during the winter months, when skin is drier and the epidermis is not absorbing serums and moisturizers in the way it should.  Uneven skin texture can leave skin looking older and duller because it doesn’t reflect light as well.

Rosacea is a progressive condition that is characterised by facial redness – especially around the nose, cheeks, chin and in-between the brows. People with this condition are consistently red or flush easily. Broken facial capillaries and acne-like pustules on the face are also a common consequence of having rosacea. Inflammation and changes to the blood vessels occur in rosacea, and in the end stages the nose becomes red, inflamed and bumpy, a condition called “rhinophyma”. Rosacea is a common condition that affects approximately 1 in 20 people.

Usually something in the environment, or something you’re doing to your skin, is stripping away the fatty oils, leaving your skin unprotected. Less often, the cause is internal; a health condition or genetic predisposition is making your skin dry out.

Facial volume loss is one of the more subtle signs of aging to identify, creeping up on us slowly rather than all at once. The gradual depletion of the skin’s vibrancy, suppleness and youthful glow is due to one gene’s, exposure to toxins and pollutants in the environment, yo-yo dieting, smoking, hormonal changes, certain medications, and the natural course of getting older.

Lip size often changes as we get older, and we lose the natural volume we once had. You can also enhance the lips to improve balance and beauty in the face. We can use dermal fillers to:
– Increase volume and balance of the lips
– Hydrate lips
– Enhance the border of the lips
– Lift the mouth corners

While many people these days are aware of using dermal fillers to enhance the lips, there are many more options and perfected techniques that an experienced and artistic clinician can utilize to enhance lips. It takes only a few extra millimeters to take a lip from beautiful to grotesque, so it takes an experienced clinician to help guide you to the best possible outcome. The best injectors know how and when to say ‘no’ while retaining a beautifully natural look.

For those who struggle with a double chin, it is frustrating.

While other body areas typically respond well to exercise and diet, it can be next to impossible to reduce the look of a double chin.

For many men and women of all different ages and backgrounds, stubborn fat is synonymous with one word: frustration. In most cases, no amount of crunches, treadmill time, reduced calories or diet protein shakes will affect the stubborn fat even an inch. It simply seems determined to stay put, ruining your image and self-confidence. Often its victims are perfectly healthy in all ways, save for the few inches of irritating fat deposits.

Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a troublesome and sometimes humiliating condition affecting the sweat glands. These glands are responsible for regulating the body’s temperature, but in the case of hyperhidrosis, the glands become overactive and trigger the body to produce more sweat than it needs or wants.
