Facial Redness

Do you suffer with facial redness, especially across the cheeks and nose? If so you may have Rosacea (pronounced “row-zay-sha”). This often starts with a tendency to flush and frequently occurs in fair skinned people aged 40-60. Whilst it’s more common in women, when it occurs in a male patient it tends to be more severe. In addition to generalised redness, those with rosacea often experience a burning or stinging sensation, and the skin in the area can be particularly sensitive, especially to sunlight. Patients may describe trigger factors such as spicy food, alcohol, stress, exercise, wind, a change in […]

Insights from the Aesthetic world, London September 2016

This last month saw two hugely important events in the aesthetic calendar for UK practitioners, and I am delighted to say that I was present for both. The first was hosted by Allergan Medical Institute, marking the ten-year anniversary of Botox® receiving its license in the UK for the treatment of frown lines. The conference was led by Dr Arthur Swift (pictured left), a pioneering and world renowned plastic surgeon from Canada.  His lecture was inspiring, focussing on the use of “phi” (also known as the golden ratio) when assessing facial proportions. This ratio (1:1.6) was first identified by Leonardo […]

Five ways your moisturiser may be harming your skin

Many patients I see use moisturisers to try to stave off wrinkles and other signs of ageing, understandably influenced by persuasive advertising trumpeting the beneficial effects such products have on the skin. The mantra that moisturising once or twice a day is paramount for healthy skin has been drip-fed into our consciousness for many years. But why do many still experience dry, dull skin despite adhering to a strict moisturising regime, and despite using expensive products? Why do so many complain of sensitive skin, when the incidence of true allergy is much lower? Why do many people suffer from spots […]

Sun Cream Products Explained

The sun emits different types of harmful rays, predominantly UVA and UVB. UVB is responsible for burning the upper/outer layers of the skin, whereas UVA penetrates more deeply, and is responsible for causing acceleration of ageing of the skin. Most dermatologists advise that the best anti-ageing product you can buy is a good quality suncream. The SPF number is a guidance to the level of UVB protection a cream offers, and correlates to the time you can spend in the sun without burning. If your skin type is such that you start to redden after 15 minutes when unprotected, then […]

Excess Sweating – What are the options?

Excess sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) is said to affect 3% of the population. Those unlucky enough to be affected are often constantly aware of their symptoms, and this can significantly inhibit them in their personal and professional lives. In fact, part of the consultation process I go through when seeing patients with hyperhidrosis consists of asking them to complete a Dermatology Life Quality Index assessment, which is an aid to determining just how much of an effect the condition is having on a person’s day to day activities. Despite popular belief, the condition is not just limited to the […]
