With aging, genetics, and sun exposure we are all susceptible to pigmentation changes to our body and faces.
Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. It is characterized by blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, greasy skin, and possible scarring. It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back. Scarring is produced when the acne lesions are not perfectly repaired.
As our age, thinning of the skin occurs and broken vessels with poor circulation to the veins can leave discoloration to the skin. Vein therapy can help to minimize these appearances.
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound results in some degree of scarring.
The skin contains pores that are passages between our body and the surface of the skin. With different type of skin, these pores can become large, clogged, or disrupted that can produce an unwanted appearance.
With age,metabolic, and environment, our skin can become dry and rough causing an unwanted appearance.
Oily skin refers to the overproduction of our sebaceous glands that can cause a higher risk for acne and enlarged pores.
A comedo is a clogged hair follicle (pore) in the skin.Keratin (skin debris) combines with oil to block the follicle. A comedo can be open (blackhead) or closed by skin (whitehead), and occur with or without acne.
The nasolabial folds, commonly known as "smile lines" or "laugh lines", are facial features. They are the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are defined by facial structures that support the buccal fat pad. They separate the cheeks from the upper lip. The term derives from Latin nasus for "nose" and labium for "lip".
Forehead wrinkles are caused from aging, genetics, sun exposure, and repetitive facial expressions (raising eyebrows). Over time and use of these expressions can cause the wrinkles to become very severe and etched in permanently at rest.
Crows feet wrinkles are caused from aging, genetics, sun exposure, and repetitive facial expressions ( Squinting, Smiling). Over time and use of these expressions can cause the wrinkles to become very severe and etched in permanently at rest.
Forehead wrinkles are caused from aging, genetics, sun exposure, and repetitive facial expressions (Frowning). Over time and use of these expressions can cause the wrinkles to become very severe and etched in permanently at rest.
Rhinoplasty commonly known as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose by resolving nasal trauma (blunt, penetrating, blast), congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed primary rhinoplasty. Most patients ask to remove a bump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, as well as correct irregularities. Another method to reconfigure the nose shape without surgery is through filler and threads. These methods give a sculpted nose to resemble surgery type results without the surgery cost and downtime.
The chin or the mental region is the area of the face below the lower lip and including the mandibular prominence. It is formed by the lower front of the mandible. With the use of fillers and threads you may sculpt the chin to produce surgery type results without the surgery cost and downtime.
As we age, the temple region begins it's collagen loss.which give less support to our surrounding tissues. This results in sinking of the temples.
Cheeks constitute the area of the face below the eyes and between the nose and the left or right ear. As we age, collagen and fat loss results in a deflated look to the cheek bones.
Throughout the aging process, we lose collagen and fat in various places in our face that result in a tired and deflated look. Restoring volume and collagen to these sites can help to restore a youthful look.
Periorbital puffiness, also known as "puffy eyes", or swelling around the eyes, is the appearance of swelling in the tissues around the eyes. It is almost exclusively caused by fluid buildup around the eyes. Minor puffiness is usually detectable below the eyes only (although at times they could be present all around) is often called eye bags.
Lip augmentation is a type of cosmetic procedure that aims to alter the appearance of the lips by increasing their fullness through enlargement using fillers.
The masseters (jaw muscles) are one of the muscles for chewing but also may give the jawline a larger look than normal in certain individuals. Certain type of injections and procedures can help to reduce the size and shape to give the jawline a more narrow appearance.
The submental area (double chin) appearance can be bothersome for individuals. With weight gain and age, this area may get larger and more stubborn to diet and exercise for some individuals.
Pigmentation means discoloration. Pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Melanin is responsible for the coloring of your skin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Depending on the pigmentation disorders, different parts of the face or body will be affected.
Periorbital dark circles (also known as dark circles or periorbital hyperpigmentation) are dark blemishes around the eyes. There are many causes of this symptom, including heredity and bruising.
Skin whitening treatments work by reducing the content of melanin of the skin. Many agents have been shown to be effective in skin whitening; some have beneficial side effects (e.g.: are antioxidants,nutrients, or decrease the risk of some types of cancer);
The breast is one of two prominences located on the upper ventral region of the torso of female primates. In females, it serves as the mammary gland, which produces and secretes milk and feeds infants.Both females and males develop breasts from the same embryological tissues. At puberty, estrogens, in conjunction with growth hormone, cause breast development. Males do not develop pronounced or physiologically matured breasts because their bodies produce lower levels of estrogens and higher levels of androgens, namely testosterone, which suppress the effects of estrogens in developing breast tissue. The breasts of females are typically far more prominent than those of males.
Body Sculpting is the process of removing fat deposits that are usually stubborn to exercise or that bulge out in specific areas
Hair removal, also known as epilation or depilation, is the deliberate removal of body hair.
Hair typically grows all over the human body. Hair can become more visible during and after puberty and men tend to have thicker, more visible body hair than women.Both men and women have visible hair on the head, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, pubic region, arms, and legs; men also have thicker hair on their face, abdomen, back and chest. Hair does not generally grow on the lips, the underside of the hands or feet or on certain areas of the genitalia.
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Thus, scarring is a natural part of the healing process. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g., after accident, disease, or surgery) results in some degree of scarring. An exception to this are animals with complete regeneration, which regrow tissue without scar formation.
Tattoo removal has been performed with various tools since the history of tattooing. While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them with treatments, fully or partially. Tattoo removal by laser is performed with continuous-wave lasers initially, and later with Q-switched lasers.
Body Skin Lifting is the process of tightening skin by stimulating and increasing collagen growth to designated areas of the body or face for a maximal lift to give a rejuvenated younger look.
Onychomycosis, also known as tinea unguium, is a fungal infection of the nail。This condition may affect toenails or fingernails, but more commonly toenails through foot hygiene and contamination.
