The natural ageing process plays a key role in the appearance of our skin over time. As we age, our skin cells lose their memory and slowly deteriorate, causing visible lines on our face. Our skin also becomes noticeably thinner and drier. The medical term for this is ‘intrinsic ageing’ and is a process mostly controlled by our genes. However, other factors such as pollution, smoking, alcohol, sun exposure and other day-to-day elements can also contribute. The great news is that it is never too late to benefit from lifestyle changes and medi-aesthetic treatments that can help repair some of the damage. New, non-invasive treatments are now available to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, even out skin tone and restore your skin’s youthful fullness.
Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue, effecting more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Pigmentation refers to spots that usually occur on the most exposed areas of the body, such as hands, face, shoulders, and neck. There are many types of pigmentation, with the most common types being sun spots, freckles, and melasma. These usually appear as blotchy brown marks and are caused by genetics, ageing, sun damage or hormonal changes.

Visibly enlarged pores are an extremely common area of concern. Often appearing on the nose, enlarged pores can also occur other areas of the body. Enlarged pores are usually the result of ageing and loss of elastin in the skin, which causes the skin structure around the pore to open more widely. Depending on the severity of the problem we have a range of treatments available.

Rosacea is a chronic condition characterised by redness, facial dilated capillaries, papules and pustules. While causes of redness and flushing are not precisely known; it can be triggered by sun exposure, environmental factors, hormonal changes, alcohol and spicy foods. Although there is no cure for rosacea, the symptoms can be greatly reduced.

Broken or dilated capillaries are tiny veins that appear on the face, most commonly around the nose and cheeks. While these spidery, reddish blemishes aren’t harmful, they can stand in the way of that clear, glowing complexion you’re looking for. They occur when the capillary walls expand and contract too quickly, causing them to tear and allowing blood to seep out. Thin, dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin provides less protection and are the most commonly effected. Once these broken vessels appear, they do not heal or disappear on their own. Luckily, treatment with diathermy, or IPL is quick, safe and effective.
Our skin is a seamless organ that protects our body from infection, but throughout our lives, we all have experiences that injure our skin and may leave behind scars. How badly you scar depends on many factors including the depth and size of the wound, your age, heredity, your health, even your gender and ethnicity. In most cases the correct treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of the scar and improve skin texture.
