Acne is a complex condition which can be caused by hormonal or environmental factors. It is usually caused by pores becoming blocked by dead skin cells, bacteria and oil. There are different types and severities which we can assess during your skin consultation with one of our Skin Health Practitioners, and devise a bespoke treatment plan to banish those spots.
Acne Scarring is a common complication developing from Acne. This is caused by excess collagen production while the body tried to heal the deep layers of the skin from Acne, resulting is excess collagen. The treatment type for acne scarring is dependent on the type of scarring which has developed, which can be assessed during consultation with one of our Skin Health Practitioners.
Dark circles can develop for a multitude of reasons such as age, genetics and seasonal allergies. It can be caused by hyperpigmentation in the area or thinning skin, making the blood vessels underneath more visible. The most appropriate treatment option is dependent on the cause, which can be discussed during your consultation.
A double chin is a layer of submental fat that has formed underneath the chin and can be caused by genetics, ageing, weight gain or hormonal changes. At Skin Doctor Clinics, we have multiple treatments available which can help dependant on how invasive you wish to go.
Facial volume loss is a natural part of the ageing process, however can be exasperated by sun exposure, weight loss, smoking and medical conditions. The skin loses is structural support as collagen proteins break down and recreation slows, we lose elasticity in the skin and our fat stores deplete. Here at Skin Doctor Clinics, our experienced Doctors offer Dermal Fillers to achieve an instant, natural result; while our Skin Health Practitioners offer Morpheus8 treatment, which helps improve your natural collagen production to rebuild volume. In some cases, combined treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results.
Frown, or Glabella, are the vertical lines which occur between the eyebrows. As we age our collagen and skin elastin deteriorate which can cause these lines to be deep- set into the skin, and show whether we are frowning or not. Typically, our doctors offer Botulinum Type A injections to help relax the muscle but avoid the ‘frozen’ look, to diminish the appearance of the frown lines.
Excessive Hair Growth
Excessive Hair Growth, or Hirsutism, is caused by an over production of androgens, leading to extra hair growth. While hormones are one of the leading causes, medications and some conditions can also contribute. Skin Doctor Clinics offers the latest Laser Hair Removal technology to help slow regrowth and reduce the overall appearance of hair growth.
Hollow Under Eyes
Facial volume loss can result in a hollowness, or sunken look, to the undereye between the lower eyelid and cheeks. This can be caused by genetics or be a part of the natural ageing process. Here at Skin Doctor Clinics, our highly experienced Aesthetic Doctors offer the specialised Tear Trough filler which can lift the area and help you look and feel refreshed.
The term “jowls” describes sagging, loose skin below the jawline, which most people develop with age. Aside from ageing, a number of other factors can also contribute to having jowls.
Both sun-damage and smoking can accelerate the ageing process, resulting in a loss of the skin’s elasticity and collagen.
Genetics can also play a part in the development of jowls; those with a genetic predisposition will be more likely to develop them. It has also been suggested that sleeping on your front or side consistently may cause jowls to form over time.
Lip lines are also called smoker’s lines and lipstick lines. Healthcare providers may use the terms “perioral rhytides” or “perioral wrinkles.” “Peri” means “around,” and “oral” means “mouth.” Lip lines are vertical wrinkles that can appear on your lips and extend from your upper lip to the tip of your nose. Lip wrinkles may range from fine, subtle lines to deep creases.
A misshapen nose can affect men and women of all ages. This condition can include one of a range of imperfections on the nose, such as: a flat bridge, a bump on the bridge (dorsal hump), crooked nose or a lifted tip.
The appearance of a misshapen nose can look different from person to person and is often the result of an irregularity with the skin, bone or cartilage. Genetics may result in a person having had a misshapen nose from birth, whereas others may find they develop this concern by way of injury or trauma, or following a surgical procedure.
Nose to Mouth Lines
Nasolabial folds are creases in your skin extending from both sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. They’re also called smile lines or laugh lines. The creases can become prominent and permanent as you age, especially if you smoke or don’t protect your skin from the sun.
As we age, our collagen production slows, current collagen breaks down and we lose the elasticity, causing skin to begin to sag. Sagging skin can also be caused by weight loss in any body area. Treatment options vary dependant on the areas of concern, and this can be discussed during consultation with our Skin Health Practitioners and Doctors.
Spider veins (also known as telangiectasias) occur due to weakness or damage in the veins. These veins can be purple or red and may appear in the form of thin lines, webs or branches. People sometimes also refer to them as thread veins. Typically, they are not painful or harmful, but some people may wish to treat them for cosmetic reasons.
Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth when you’re awake (awake bruxism) or clench or grind them during sleep (sleep bruxism).
Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
Some people have naturally thin lips. It can also be a sign of ageing as collagen breaks down or as a result of smoking making lips appearing thinner.
