Scar Conscious

Some of us may have travelled through life without an accident or anything to leave a scar on our skin… those are the lucky ones. For many of us, we boast a variety of scars from simple cuts and minor accidents, to the effects of baring a child.

For some, these scars tell a story and are more than happy to leave them be, for other scars and stretch marks may be the bane of their lives, they may create a self consciousness that can cause some people confidence problems.

Luckily, in the modern age we are blessed with a range of products and treatments which can reduce and even remove scarring and stretch marks.

Stretch Marks are caused by the rapid stretching of the skin and actual tearing of the dermis. This can be caused by weight gain, muscle gain and pregnancy.

Scaring is the cause of damage again to the dermis and scar tissue is the natural part of the healing process. In minor cases, there will be a period of scar tissue before the skin appears normal. However some scars seem to stay with us a lot longer.

Scarring on the face and on delicate tissues can create worry for some people and despite the amount of specialist creams you apply, there appears no change. This is when it is time to consider a treatment to reduce and remove scars.

Laser Scar Removal offers a treatment which has had incredible results, refreshing skin and minimising scars. Many people have invested in such a treatment and have been over the moon with the outcome. There are options for everyone and Laser Scar Removal isn’t as costly as you would think.

So, you could continue applying those creams in hope those marks will shift, or you could choose a treatment that really does work.

A trip to India

In this weeks news, it has been highlighted that millions of people flock to India for cosmetic surgery.

A group of Ugandan women were interviewed as they took a month long tour of the country, to undergo an incredible transformation. They would return to Uganda slimmer and full of life and confident. What were their reasons for choosing India as a destination for cosmetic surgery? Mainly because of the low costs, great facilities and English Speaking doctors.

The popularity of cosmetic surgery has risen in the past 20 years and many will travel the world to attain a new figure and better skin, yet, here in the UK we are so lucky to have top quality clinics where you will see professional Dr’s and the treatments are incredibly affordable.

What more could be more comforting than the thought of having a procedure in a town or city that is not far from home, friends and family can visit and show their support, or you can simply pop home for a nice cup of tea and put your feet up.

No longer is it necessary to book flights to some far distant country in the name of beauty, it is right on your doorstep.

Cost is one of the major factors that encourages people to fly away for treatments, but in the UK we have specialist skin clinics which provide high quality treatments at an affordable price.

The key is to do your research, talk to the Dr’s and surgeons. Talk to people who have had treatments and gauge where you would like to go and exactly what outcomes you would like to achieve.

As for the Ugandan women, they have opted for a “mommy makeover” which in the USA costs five times more than in India.

Medical Tourism is booming overseas, but we think we’d like to pop out somewhere local, it would save all of that jet lag!

Rosy glow – Treating Rosacea

This time of year can cause many to have that rosy cheeked natural glow. However, what if you seem to have that rosy glow all year round, some would love to have naturally pink cheeks, it would save a pretty penny on blusher, but for others, rosy cheeks are not all they cracked up to be.

Rosacea is a common skin complaint and is prevalent between those aged 30-60. It tends to affect more women than men and can be a rather embarrassing skin condition.

If mainly affects the facial area and those of fair skin, 1 in 10 people suffer from Rosacea.

What is Rosacea?

Despite being common, we still don’t know everything about the condition Rocacea. It can cause redness and flushing of the skin, some of the finer veins can appear and in some cases the skin can thicken around the affected area such as the nose. It can also cause an increase in spots.

What are the causes of Rosacea?

The actual cause of Rosacea is unknown, but research by the National Rosacea Society has identified the most common reasons why Rosacea may flare up – these include, direct sunlight, cold weather, alcohol, stress, hot drinks and eating spicy foods.

How to treat Rosacea.

Firstly, it is suggested to avoid all of those elements which can trigger the pink flushing, but sometimes this is easier said than done.

Luckily there are a range of treatments available which use the advanced technical power of lasers.

We’re talking about small  medical grade lasers which are concentrated on the area and basically encourage the veins and blood vessels which cause Rosacea to heal, thus reducing the signs of redness.

Some may think only the rich and famous could afford this treatment, but believe it or not, it is affordable and can reduce Rosacea, giving a brighter, less rosy appearance.

The only downside of having this treatment is that if required, you will have to go out and purchase some blusher or bronzer.

Trying something new

For years you may have tried and tested hundreds of products to give your skin a certain lift. The amount of choice available in terms of beauty products is incredible and can send us into a spin. Some may find they spend uneccessary time picking up different products, reading exactly what they do and lets me honest, looking at the price.

We are lucky to have so many products and treatments which are tailored to certain skin types. If you suffer from dry, normal or oily skin, there is a whole universe of skin creams, cleansers and cosmetics which clean, moisturise, lift, reduce lines, highlight, create a glow, as you can see there is a product or treatment for pretty much every complaint.

Although you may have found something that works for you, sometimes it is a great idea to try something new. Why? Because your skin gets used to particular products and this doesn’t seem to provide the results that you may have originally found. Obviously if you have found something that gives you the best skin ever, we’re not saying get rid- we’re simply saying, if you find that you skin is still dry, or too oily, or you are not finding you get the effects you desire, it may be an idea to try a natural product or something completely different, like a longer lasting treatment.

Most beauty counters and specialist brands in the bigger department stores can offer great advice when it comes to your skin type and exactly what type of product will help you reduce fine lines, tighten skin, plump up skin and ultimately provide you with a more youthful look.

If you are curious about your skin and what products or treatments would suit you best from a professional perspective, you can seek advice from our skin specialist at Natura Skin Clinic, who is also a qualified Dr.

There are so many options available to improve your skin and your look, why not try something new?
