Covering eczema or psoriasis with inappropriate cosmetics might aggravate it further.
Eczema is a general term encompassing various inflamed skin conditions. The exact causes are unknown, but generally linked to an overactive response by the body’s immune system. Common triggers include soaps, fabrics, sweat, animals, and other irritants. It is not contagious, but persistent and unsightly, characterized by reddish, dry and extremely itchy patches. Most of the time, it comes with blisters, therefore scratching can cause the skin to ooze pus and create crusty scabs on the skin.
Varicose & Spider Veins
Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn through the skin, much like tree branches. They usually develop in the legs.
Spider veins are mini versions of varicose veins, often red, purple, and blue in colour, with the appearance of a spider web, hence the name. They can be found on legs, chest, or even face.
Heredity, overweight issues, pregnancy, and occupations that involve long hours of standing can cause varicose or veins.
Psoriasis is a chronic, recurring condition that is caused by an overproduction of skin cells. The dead skin cells build up and accumulate into thick patches of white scales, causing serious itching.
The unpredictable nature of psoriasis makes treatment challenging for many. It is important to be open-minded and willing to work with your doctor to find one that works. Our team of experienced doctors are here to plan the best possible treatments for you.
Hypertrophic & Keloid Scar
A scar occurs as a result of wound repair anywhere on your body. The composition of scars varies, from flat to sunken or lumpy.
Hypertrophic scars can be itchy, red and raised initially, and continue to thicken. However, they never exceed the boundaries of the original wound, and generally become flatter or paler with time.
A keloid scar is an overgrowth of tissue. It keeps growing, even after the wound has healed. Keloids are itchy, hairless and shiny, and can grow much larger than the original wound.
Birthmarks & Tattoos
Even if you’re born with it!
A birthmark is irregularity on the skin usually present at birth or appears shortly after birth. While some birthmarks are not very noticeable or can resolve on their own over time, others can be bothersome.
While a tattoo is something you get for yourself, there are lots of reasons for wanting a tattoo removed. Those who obtain tattoos may suffer immediate regret when the tattoo artist messed up, or embarrassment years later when their lives change, be it a breakup or a job. Let us erase your regrets from the decorating ink that you no longer find appealing.
