SKIN CONCERN

Acne & Skin Breakouts

There are different types of Acne ranging from pimples, whiteheads, blackheads to deep cystic legions and scaring. To control acne, it is important to use skin products that help control oil production in the skin, exfoliate it (to prevent dead skin build-up), and keep acne causing bacteria at bay (with anti-bacterial and pH regulating ingredients).

A comprehensive acne management plan involves:

• Topical skin products & treatments

• Dermatological lasers & light treatments

• Oral medication as prescribed by your doctor

Topical skin products remain the first line of defence against all types of acne. However, over-the-counter brands bought without any medical advice often deliver suboptimal results. At MySkinSolution™, we have chosen some of the best medical grade topical skin products to help control acne.

Age Prevention

Skin ageing is a natural process and everyone experiences it. However, premature skin ageing due to excessive sun damage or any chronic illness is preventable with a good skin care routine.

Preventative Anti-ageing

Preventative anti-ageing products are focused on preservation and maintenance using antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental factors that attack the skin’s cells causing the tell-tale signs of ageing.

Intense Anti-ageing

When your skin is showing signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles, and changes in the texture, tone, and colour; it’s time to get serious about your skincare. Intense anti-ageing products focus on resurfacing and repairing as well as replacing lost nutrients and hydration.

A comprehensive plan to reverse the signs of premature photo-ageing of the skin may involve:

• A healthy lifestyle

• Being Sun Smart

• Topical Skin Products & Treatments

• Dermatological Lasers & Light Treatments

Topical skin products remain the first line of defence against all types of photo ageing. However, over-the-counter brands bought without any medical advice often deliver suboptimal results.

Dehydrated Skin

A dehydrated skin feels tight and sometimes uncomfortable with noticeable fine lines. Apart from looking dull and lifeless, a dehydrated skin lacks the water that is essential for proper functioning. This can lead to further problematic skin conditions and premature ageing.

Products that contain ingredients that stop further loss of water from the skin, as well as those that bind water and attract water to the skin (such as Hyaluronic Acid) are essential in treating dermal dehydration.

Dry Skin

Dry skins tends to be sensitive, itchy and appear flaky, scaly and dull. Dry skin lacks lipids (oils) and often goes hand in hand with dehydrated skin (lacking water). This is due to the disturbance of the skin’s natural barrier, which allows the moisture to escape from the skin. It is vital to keep the moisture content of the skin up with moisturisers and hydrating serums. Gentle exfoliation will also help reduce flaking and bring back the glow!

Enlarged Pores

Pores can appear enlarged due to an excess of oil production and accumulation of dead skin cells. Normal ageing and excessive sun exposure can also cause the pores to appear enlarged. To help minimize the appearance of pore size, products containing salicylic acid often work well. It is also important to keep the skin hydrated but avoid using any heavy creams.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is caused by overproduction of melanin (pigment/colour) in scattered or patchy format in the skin. Unwanted skin pigmentation is often associated with sun damage. In cosmetic dermatology, we divide skin pigmentation into two broad groups:

1. Sun spots, freckles – Non Hormonal Hyperpigmentation

2. Malasma – Hormonal Pigmentation

Hormonal Pigmentation:

Hormonal hyperpigmentation most commonly appears during pregnancy or with the use of contraceptive pills.  UV radiation triggers it. Melasma/chloasma known as the ‘pregnancy mask’ usually appears in a symmetrical fashion over the face. Avoiding further UV exposure and the use of pigment controlling products known as ‘Tyrosinase Inhibitors’ are important in controlling the production of melanin (pigment/colour) in the skin. Increasing the turnover of skin cells through exfoliation will lighten discolouration. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding you must avoid products containing Salicylic Acid & Vitamin A (retinol), and opt instead for Lactic Acid or Enzymes. It is essential to ensure strict use of a high-quality SPF product every day when treating hyperpigmentation.

Non-hormonal Pigmentation

This is due to sun damaged skin.

How to treat skin pigmentation:

A comprehensive skin pigmentation management plan often involves:

• Minimising ongoing sun damage

• Topical Skin Products & treatments

• Dermatological Lasers & Light treatments

• Regular Skin check by your doctor to rule out any skin cancers

• Prescription only skin products

There are a few factors to consider when treating this challenging skin condition. The use of pigment controlling products known as ‘Tyrosinase Inhibitors’ will control the production of melanin in the skin, preventing the formation of new sun spots. Increasing the turnover of skin cells through exfoliation will lighten discolouration. Vitamin A (retinol) is key to normalising the melanin activity as well as being resurfacing. Using antioxidants will help protect against further damage. Vitamin C works specifically to brighten the skin. When treating hyperpigmentation strict daily use of high-quality SPF products is essential.

Oily Skin

Oily skin appears shiny, with enlarged pores and is often associated with breakouts. It is important to keep an oily skin clean without over-drying. Well exfoliated skin is also crucial to minimise the chances of those pesky pimples! Products such as toners can prove very beneficial for those experiencing oiliness in the T-Zone region of the face.

Facial Redness (Rosacea)

Facial redness, flushing, visibly broken blood vessels and skin sensitivity can all be signs of rosacea. Small, red, pus-filled bumps showing during a flare-up are the trademark of a true rosacea skin. Whether you are suffering from hyper-sensitive red skin or rosacea, it is important to treat your skin gently and avoid UV damage. Introduce new products slowly and carefully.

Scarring

The use of topically applied scar treatments can improve the look of new pink or red scars. Old scars that have gone beyond this point will require clinical intervention with lasers and scar reduction therapies.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skins appear thin and fragile and generally reacts to a lot of products applied to the skin with a tendency to redden easily. The use of mild products that are not overly stimulating and contain calming and soothing botanical ingredients are a great place to start when treating your sensitive skin.

Sun Damaged Skin

Sun damaged skin always ages faster showing fine lines, wrinkles, textual changes and discolouration before its time. Medical strength skincare products containing antioxidants, and hydration agents is the key to treating sun damaged skin. Avoiding further damage with  daily application of quality SPF is critical to prevent future skin cancers.
