acne

ACNE FACE / BODY

Acne is a huge topic but to put it simply acne Acne is a disease of the pilosebaceous unit (oil gland and hair follicle) and is characterised by presence of comedones, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts, which might result in permanent scars. When the hair follicle becomes clogged with dead skin cells, sebum and bacteria this causes inflammation in the sebaceous (oil) gland.

This is a result of 4 abnormal processes. First is a higher amount of sebum production influenced by androgens (hormone) Second is excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedo formation, third is colonisation of P. Acnes Bacteria and forth is the local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Each acne case is different but we can treat acne with a variety of treatments and products. including a full home care prescription using Synergie Skin products including Decongest (Bacne for body acne), Mediscrub, Ultimate A, Vitamin B and treatments such as LED Light Therapy, IPL Treatments, Dermapen, Microdermabrasion and Elite Clinical Skin Peels

acne scars

ACNE SCARRING

Abnormal production and degradation of collagen during the healing process of acne leads to various types of acne scars. In 80 to 90 percent of cases, there is a net destruction of collagen in the dermis (second layer of the skin) that results in atrophic (indented) scars. Less commonly, there is a net gain of collagen that results in hypertrophic (raised) or keloid scars.

We can treat all types of scaring using a full home care prescription of Synergie Skin products including Ultimate A, Pure C, Rejuvaderm home roller and treatments such as Advanced Skin Needling and PRP Regenerative Cellular Therapy.

age spots

AGE SPOTS

Age spots also known as liver spots become more apparent as we age. They are a result of an overproduction of melanin most often caused by over exposure to the sun. The loss of plumpness and elasticity in the skin causes the melanin to disperse unevenly resulting in densely pigmented spots. Age spots normally appear flat against the skin.

We can treat age spots with a program of full home care routine using Synergie Skin products including some products like Enlighten Serum and Pure C crystals or Suprema-C along with treatments likes Cosmelan Depigmenting Peel or our Plasmedic Fibroblast Treatment.

Blackheads

BLACKHEADS

Blackheads occur when pores become clogged. Each pore on your skin contains a hair follicle and sebaceous gland. This sebaceous gland is responsible for the production of sebum (oil). An excess of sebum production can result in plugging the pore at the top, and sebum will begin to build up, this oil build up will begin to catch dead skin cells and bacteria that will oxidise and turn black. A blackhead is an open comedone - where the plug of a clogged pore is open to the air on the surface of the skin.

We can treat blackheads using a full home care prescription of Synergie Skin products including some products like EvaPore-8 and Blem-X and with some treatments like Microdermabrasion and Medical Grade Peels.

dehydrated skin

DEHYDRATED SKIN

Dehydration in the skin is a huge topic, but to put it simply a healthy clear skin, requires about 15 to 20% water content to remain intact. This contributes to the skins plumpness and elasticity, not to mention it helps to regulate the overall function of the skin. If you want clear skin, then the skin must maintain sufficient water balance for proper functioning.

milia

MILIA

Milia most commonly present around the eyes and cheeks and appear as small white bumps on the skin. This can be a result from a build up of keratin that gets trapped under the surface of the skin. It has also been linked to taking to much Vitamin C that can cause the skin to become acidic.


We can treat milia using a full home care prescription of Synergie Skin products and a home care routine including products like Mediscrub and Reveal and treatments like Microdermabrasion with extractions.

melanin

PIGMENTATION

Melanin is responsible for the production of pigment (colour) in the skin. Melanin is produced by meloncytes located in the basal layer (lower layer) of the Epidermis (top layer of the skin). Its production begins when there is a trigger such as UV radiation or in the case of melasma hormones.

Pigmentation can be managed using a full home care prescription using Synergie Skin products including Enlighten, Suprema C and treatments such as Cosmelan Depigmenting Peel and Synergie Skin Peels.

rosacea

ROSACEA

Rosacea can present in few different ways, it can be in the form of redness and flushing or it can also present with pimples and pustules. The most common occurs as diffused redness across the cheeks and nose. This can create inflammation and can cause the nose to appear bulbs. When the skin is flushed with blood a biochemical reaction in the skin is released, this triggers expansion and growth of new blood vessels, which increases the chances of flushing.

There is no known cure for rosacea but we can manage the symptoms using a full home care prescription of Synergie Skin products including some products like Cleansing Dust and Derma Calm and treatments like IPL Vascular Therapy and LED Light Therapy.

sebacious hyperplasia

SEBACEOUS HYPERPLASIA

The way sebaceous hyperplasia presents is the appearance of small, bumps under the skin commonly mistaken for milia. The bump can have a slight indentation in the center and a white or yellow outer edge. The case is not entirely known but its possibly linked to the sebaceous gland (oil gland) that secrets sebum (oil) and it becomes trapped inside the gland also possible changes in androgen hormones as a person ages.

We can treat sebaceous hyperplasia using a full home care prescription of Synergie Skin products including Ultimate and treatments like Synergie Skin Peels.

syringoma

SYRINGOMA

Syringoma presents as flesh coloured or in some cases yellowish bumps, most commonly found on lower eyes and eye lids. They can be sometimes confused with milia. Syringoma is benign tumours of the eccrine glands (sweat glands).

We can treat this with our Plasmedic device.

WRINKLES & FINE LINES

Free radicals are the main culprits commonly known to cause skin ageing. Free radicals are produced by environmental factors such as mental stress, work habits, drug abuse, disease, smoking, environmental pollution, poor nutrition, pesticides, other chemicals in food and alcohol, and most importantly, from UV radiation exposure from the sun. When UV radiation penetrates the skin, it produces an excessive amount of free radicals, which destroy collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin. UV radiation also causes further damage to your DNA inside skin cells causing faulty DNA to replicate. This results in visual and clinical signs of ageing including dryness, wrinkles, sagging, loss of elasticity, and mottled pigmentation.

We can treat ageing skin with a full home care prescription using Synergie Skin products such as Super Serum, and Reclaim - and a variety of treatments that we can program to suit your skin such as, Anti Wrinkle and Dermal Filler Injections, PRP Regenerative Cellular Therapy, Advanced Skin Needling and Plasmedic device.
