Age Spots (or Liver Spots) and Sun Spots are flat and oval blemishes that vary in size and are usually brown, grey or black. The primary cause of age and sun spots is prolonged sun exposure and therefore age spots on the face and on other exposed areas, such as the hands, shoulders and arms, are very common.
Birthmarks are very common blemishes that appear on the skin at birth or shortly thereafter. Birthmarks can be found anywhere on the body and vary considerably in texture, shape, size and color. The majority of birthmarks are harmless, except for the aesthetic aspect.
|Capillaries are small blood vessels found throughout the body that connect arteries and veins. When these capillaries break, they can cause small, discolored blemishes beneath the surface of the skin. Broken capillaries that occur on the face, specifically the cheeks and nose, are usually the most noticeable since the eye is naturally drawn to those areas during regular conversation and interaction with others.|
With age, facial skin loses its strength and elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles form, due to a decline in collagen and elastin proteins, which are found in the dermis layer of the skin. Most people first notice fine lines under their eyes and around their mouth, which later progress to more pronounced wrinkles.
The Lumenis® M22™ ResurFX™ nonablative laser treats skin damage and tightens skin. Unlike ablative lasers, which remove the top layer of skin and part of the sublayer, nonablative lasers keep the outer layer of skin intact, which promotes faster healing.
Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition that primarily affects the facial area and is characterized by skin flushing and redness which can be transient or persistent. Millions suffer from Rosacea, which affects all segments of the population, regardless of skin type or color.
A scar is an area of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin after an injury or surgery as a result of abnormal wound healing. Because the collagen fibers in a scar are arranged differently than in normal tissue, the affected area has a different texture.
Stretch marks, or striae, are flat or depressed scars on the skin with partial involution over time, but without complete disappearance. Almost every woman who went through pregnancy will suffer from stretch marks.
Human hair grows nearly everywhere on the body except few areas like feet soles. The hair can be fine and almost invisible, or very coarse and dark. Depending on personal preference and social norms, women and men around the world opt to remove hair from certain body areas as a part of their beauty routine.
