Acne scars can occur as the skin heals from pimples, nodules (larger and harder pimples), or comedones (whiteheads and blackheads). These scars appear as depressions or raised, red areas in the skin that last long after the acne is gone, and give the skin a typical bumpy or wavy appearance.
Specifically, acne scars can appear in the Ice pick Scars, Boxcar Scars, Rolling Scars, and Hypertrophic Scars
The ‘on-set’ of aging most manifests itself on the skin often starting from dull, discolored, rough, wrinkled and sagging appearance of the face. One of the main changes responsible for this condition is the lowered supply of collagen, an important protein that strengthens the structures that hold the skin in its place.
Then there is the problem of premature aging that is most common concern of those residing in the…
Often children are born with skin irregularities commonly called birthmarks. Some children develop them within a month or so after their birth. Birthmarks can appear anywhere on the skin and are quite a few in number and variety. However, all the known ones can be identified as either pigmented or vascular.

Post-adolescent age has its own challenges some peculiar others characteristic. One of the latter types is persistent appearance of cellulite on the skin which is most common (around 90 percent) in women and least seen in men.

When ageing skin droops it gains laxity to develop fines lines, wrinkles, and even furrows, sags and bags. Of these, fine lines and wrinkles are the most common changes. The speed and severity of these changes depend mainly on the following three factors:
1: the individual’s genetic tendency,
2: her skin photo-type, an
3: the frequency or amount of exposure to environmental factors
Appearance of scars on the skin is a part of life, not a desirable one though; as more often than not this, part takes away some beauty from our life offering cosmetic challenges.
Scars may appear as a result of a medical condition such as acne, a surgical procedure such as skin grafting, or simply from an injury to the skin. A tattoo that is not wanted anymore can also be considered as a scar that needs to be removed. All these scars can be most effectively treated reducing their…
Some people get freckles or skin blemishes that ruin their appearance in quite young age.
Freckles (known as ephilides in the medical community) are small brown marks that appear on the skin particularly the face and other sun-exposed areas. These flat marks are more common, as well as more visible, in people having fair skin. But as freckles are known to be an inherited condition, dark skinned persons are not free from them if their skin is predisposed.
Hemangiomas (or strawberry marks as they are commonly known) are vascular tumors that occur as swelling or outgrowth on the skin. These marks are caused by extra-normal growth of special (endothelial) cells that line blood vessels in the skin. They occur in many shapes and sizes and may develop internally as well as externally. In about eighty percent cases, hemangiomas occur on the head and neck areas.
Hemangiomas are the most common tumors…
While pores are essential to having healthy skin as they provide the necessary oils to keep your skin soft and hydrated, some people are born with a natural disposition to have unsightly, large pores.
If you are thick skinned (not figuratively), you already have a tendency to develop large pores. Over time, tiny cells will gather around the edges of your pores making them look larger.
Appearance of hair in certain areas of a man’s or women’s body can be seen as cosmetic problem. Women are particularly sensitive to the nightmarish idea of having hair in such areas as the face, upper lip, bikini line. Still women often have to face growth of additional hair during both pregnancy and menopause. Then, less common though, there are cases of symptomatic hair growth associated with some diseases.
Traditional methods of hair removal such as…
Photo rejuvenation falls into three categories:
chemical, that uses chemical peels,
thermal, that involves Thermage, and
Mechanical, based on energy delivery devices.
Laser photo rejuvenation falls in the mechanical category. The procedure is based on a recent development in the laser technology with the advent of more improved, laser based light therapy device.
Skin rejuvenation involves any procedure, method and approach to improve the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles, scars and age-related discoloration, primarily around the mouth, eyes and other larger areas of the face by artificially removing the outer layer of the skin to allow for new skin layer to form more quickly. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the methods that are used to achieve this.
Traditional methods such as chemical peels and dermabrasion can also help but …
Loose and sagging skin is one of the inevitable signs of aging. In addition to the natural aging process, long exposures in the sun and even the simple acts of laughing and frowning all our lives also start to take their toll on our skin making it appear older than we are or feel.
What actually happens is that a vital ingredient of the connecting tissue that holds the skin becomes less available in later years of life. This ingredient is actually the main structural protein found in the skin.
Why do people want to have a tattoo removed? Why do they want to have it in the first place? While choosing to have (or not to have) a tattoo, to keep, to change or to have one removed altogether, all are matters of personal nature by far, studies have shown that women (specially those who are young, white and college-educated) are more likely to request a tattoo removal.
People usually ask for removing one for reasons that vary from personal to social, and from purely…

Ageing skin is characterized by deep lines, ashen appearance and sagging. It develops these signs, besides other factors, due to weakened circulation (which fails to flush out toxins efficiently), reduced levels of hyaluronic acid (which is responsible for maintaining hydration), and diminishing levels of antioxidant vitamins and minerals.
Mesotherapy is a technique developed to control this abnormal physiological situation.
Irrespective of how or why they appear, dark patches on the skin generally cause embarrassment and lowly feelings. Whether you get them as a result of birthmark or aging, freckles and blemishes will be an eye sore as long as they are not fully removed and left visible to the naked eye.
While in many cases skin discolourations can be successfully removed or made to fade applying usual hyperpigmentation treatments…
Some children – approximately three in a thousand, irrespective of gender – are born with this kind of irregularly shaped but well-circumscribed discoloration called port-wine stains (or nevus flammeus).

A large number of people are suffering from rosacea today with an estimated 13 million in the United States alone.
Rosacea is a common skin disorder common to both men and women. It is characterized by a flushed, reddened appearance of the facial skin typically around the eyes, nose, cheeks and forehead. Together with this may often appear enlarged blood-carrying vessels and recurring pimples or small white heads potentially confusing it with acne.
When wounds heal, they often modify specific factors in the anatomy such as collagen, bone, cartilage and blood vessels. Any combination of these modifications will eventually lead to appearance of skin irregularities called scarring.
Scars may appear as depressions or indentations in the skin. Often, these skin irregularities result from a medical condition such as acne or keloid scars, or from a surgical incision.
One of the most popular cosmetic issues, which is more prevalent in women is the appearance of spider veins. These veins which emerge near the surface of the skin more usually on legs and face, are actually the excess, or dead, small blood vessels or capillaries that have stopped playing their role in the circulation.
Technically known as telangiectasias, spider veins are so called because of their web-like appearance, although they can also appear as stand-alone…
Some men and women are predisposed to develop unsightly streak-like, silver-white lines called stretch marks on their skin following such critical episodes of life as puberty spurts, weight-gain or pregnancy.
