Definition: Acne often leaves small scars where the skin gets a “volcanic crater” shape. Physical acne scars are sometimes referred to as “Icepick” scars. This is because the scars tend to cause an indentation in the skin’s surface. Acne scarring can be very moderate and localized to very significant.

Cellulite and Unwanted Fat
Cellulite is composed of fat and connective tissue that combine to give a lumpy or “orange peel” appearance to the skin. Do you crave for your skin to be silky and smooth? Trying to target areas that are resistant to exercise?

We lose collagen in our skin as we age, making skin much less elastic. Skin pores may also get much larger, which will increase the number of facial imperfections such as sagging skin, blackheads, and oily skin.

Facial Veins and Leg Veins
Visible facial veins, which have many different names (spider veins, telangiectasias, spider angiomas, benign vascular lesions), are actually dilated blood vessels. They are usually found on the forehead, nose, cheeks, eyelids, neck, and upper chest. Blood vessel dilation is due to weakening of the elastic fibers in the walls of the blood vessel. Visible veins are associated with excessive sun exposure, normal aging, steroid use, liver disease, genetics, radiation therapy, and trauma.

Toenail fungus, also called onychomycosis, affects 50% of all Americans over 40. An infection of nail fungus occurs when fungi infect one or more of your nails. A nail fungus infection may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges – an unsightly and potentially painful problem.

Definition: Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema (redness). Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. Many people also develop small visible vessels on their face as well, often called telangiactasia. These are treated in the same manner as rosacea

Over time, the skin’s underlying structure breaks down, robbing our faces of their definition, youthful plumpness, and resilience. Skin also renews itself much more slowly than it once did. Thanks to all these factors (not to mention genetics, weight changes, and sun damage), skin starts to sag and hang.
How we treat Sagging Skin:
Definition: The flat brown and black spots that occur on areas exposed to the sun are called age spots, sun spots, or even liver spots, though they have nothing to do with the liver.
