Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. Pimples form when hair follicles under your skin clog up. Most pimples form on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults. It is not serious, but it can cause scars.
Dimples are desired by many people as they help to brighten a smile and add character. In some cultures, dimples are even considered as sign of good luck and prosperity. Many patients are not aware of the availability of dimple surgery. The procedure is performed from the inner side of the cheek, with no incision or scar on the skin outside. Immediately after the surgery there is a dimple present even without smiling. After a few days, or sometimes a few weeks, the dimple is present only on smiling or facial movements.
Lip reduction surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia. The surgery takes about 1 hour and takes about 1-2 weeks to heal. During the procedure, a strip of skin is removed from the lip. The dimensions of this strip will depend on the existing and the desired lip sizes, and is planned and marked out carefully by the surgeon prior to the procedure.
The creation of double eyelids, or upper blepharoplasty, is by far the commonest plastic surgery procedure among Asians. Many Asians do not have double eyelid creases. This results in upper eyelids that are bulging and taut from the eyebrow to the eyelashes. The presence of an upper eyelid crease, or double eyelid, helps to uncover a portion of the natural eye contour. This makes the eyes appear slightly bigger, rounder and exposes more of the eyelashes. It also helps to make the eyelids more amenable to makeup.
Acne Scars Treatment
Acne is one of the most common skin diseases in the world. Around three-quarters of all teenagers and young adults suffer from acne. However, men and women in their 30s and 40s can also suffer from it. Some individuals have acne that are severe enough to cause scarring. Acne scarring is the result of inflammation in the lower layer of the skin called the dermis which causes the collagen to become deformed or scarred resulting in depressions in the skin.
A birthmark is a splotch on our skin, which can appear in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. While some birthmarks are small and inconspicuous, others have a more prominent appearance, which can be bothersome to some, and can even lower ones self-esteem. In some cases, certain types of birthmarks can become a health risk. Some birthmarks do fade or completely disappear over time, however, there are others that will never fade or go away. Birthmark removal offers a solution to people who are self-conscious about their appearance and help reduce the possibility of health risks associated with certain moles.
Rosacea and broken facial capillaries There are many reasons that people develop blood vessels on their face. The most common reason for broken capillaries on the face is genetic susceptibility. However, there are environmental factors that contribute to the development of facial capillaries. These include factors that makes one blush and flush including sun exposure, spicy foods, hot beverages, alcohol and extremes of weather, such as cold, hot, or windy weather. These are the same exacerbating factors for another common skin condition named rosacea, which not only results in development of blood vessels and general redness on the face but can occasionally result in formation of adult acne.
MDA is a superficial skin polishing procedure. This machine, exclusive to physician providers, propels a fine stream of inert microscopic crystals against the skin to gently exfoliate the epidermal layer and promote a thicker healthier dermis while smoothing and refreshing the skin. The use of a vacuum within the system helps to increase circulation in the area.
Treatment for Wrinkles
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. As you grow older, your skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. And it becomes less able to protect itself from damage. As a result, wrinkles, lines and creases form in your skin. Although genetics are the most important determiner of skin texture, a major contributor to wrinkles is spending too much time in the sun. Smoking also can negatively affect how your skin looks.
Stretch Marks Removal
Stretch marks in genetically susceptible individuals are usually the result of rapid growth or weight gain in a certain areas in the body. This could be due to rapid weight gain, pregnancy, puberty, or rapid increase in muscle mass. Stretch marks are usually red early on and take on a whitish color as they mature. Over the counter and prescription creams are not effective for treatment of stretch marks as they do not penetrate deep enough on the skin to address the pathology.
BOTOX is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein. BOTOX smoothes out lines by preventing the muscles from contracting into a wrinkle.
Browlift, nowadays performed endoscopically, corrects this problem. During this procedure, the skin and soft tissue of the upper face is elevated and fixed in a new, youthful position. The Endotine device is a new technology that uses 5 tines, instead of sutures, to fix the forehead tissue in its new position. The Endotine device is made of absorbable material found in sutures, and gradually disappears over a few months. By that time the forehead tissues would have already reattached to the bone in the new position.
Chemical peels are designed to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin. The naturally occurring fruit acids in these treatments will remove dead skin cells from the skins surface. Removing this top layer (where most visible wrinkles are) allows the healthier skin cells to come through, allowing your skin to glow, and giving it radiance and a smoother texture. Your facial blemishes, wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation will improve. Acne will be better controlled, and acne scars will be softened. Pre-cancerous skin growths may also be removed.
