Glowing Skin

A glimpse on various skin services for a beautiful, glowing skin

Who doesn’t love a beautiful skin? We’re all attracted to a beautiful face. We like to look at them, we feel drawn to them and we aspire to have one. Beauty is thought to signal youth, confidence and health. There are many skin conditions that are perfectly natural, yet because of our beliefs around skin and health, these can cause the sufferers extreme self-consciousness.

The skin is the most visible sign of ageing. As we age the skin changes. These changes are most pronounced in the areas exposed daily to the sun, such as the face, neck and the backs of our hands. As the skin thins, loses volume and elasticity and becomes dull and dark rings develop under the eyes, wrinkles appear. And there are a few skin concerns that trouble today’s youth so much like acne and scars, hyper-pigmentation on certain parts of body, unwanted facial hair and tattoos.

There are various treatments to achieve a flawless skin or to treat acne – troubled skin. Doctor generally prescribe over the counter treatments to help with skin whitening, acne and hyper-pigmentation with active elements like salicylic acid and retinoids, whereas there are a few procedures if the over-the-top medications do not give the desired effect.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels treat wrinkles, acne scars, rough skin, age spots, and freckles. Treatment involves applying a chemical solution to remove damaged skin. Chemical peels range from mild to deep. The best type for you depends on the severity of your skin problems. Mild peels use alpha-hydroxy acids. Medium peels use trichloroacetic acid. Both reduce fine lines and acne. Phenol treats deeper scars and wrinkles. It produces more dramatic results than medium or mild peels, but recovery times are longer. Results of a deep chemical peel last up to 10 years.

Laser Hair Removal

This common procedure is generally safe for any part of the body, including the face. It works best on light skin with dark hair. Darker hair absorbs more laser light. Lighter skin lets more of the laser light into the hair follicle. Many factors determine the laser strength and how many treatments you need. These include your skin type, hair thickness and colour, and the size and location of the treatment area. Hair loss is permanent after 3 to 8 sessions for most people.
