Dry Skin

Some individuals have a genetic predisposition to dry skin and as we age our skins tend to become drier. Dry skin has a very low level of sebum and can be prone to sensitivity. The skin has a parched look caused by its inability to retain moisture. It usually feels "tight" and uncomfortable after washing unless some type of moisturizer or skin cream is applied. Chapping and cracking are signs of extremely dry, dehydrated skin. Find out more

Broken Veins

These annoying little veins usually crop up on the cheeks, chin and around the nose and are the results of damage to tiny blood vessels. A variety of reasons can be the sun, cold weather, Rosacea, damage of having too many fillers or just old middle age. Find out more

Varicose Veins

Your veins have tiny one-way valves inside them that open up to let the blood through, then close to stop it from flowing backwards. Sometimes the vein walls stretch and lose their elasticity, which makes the valves weak and they don’t function properly, which make the blood collect in your veins and make them swollen and enlarged.

Scar’s and Scar Removal

Permanent damage to the skin can be prevented if acne scarring is treated in the early staged. If an acne lesion occurs and heals it may leave hyper pigmentation spots on the skin surface and is a natural part of the skin healing process. This can take up to a year to be completed. If not recurring scarring takes place in the same region, the skin will heal naturally. If however scarring occurs, permanent skin damage can be the result. Find out more
