Teeth Grinding

Bruxism (grinding of the teeth/ jaw clenching) is the 3rd most common sleep disorder (after insomnia & snoring). It can be effectively treated with Botox by weakening the cheek (masseter) muscles. The same treatment can be used cosmetically to slim down the cheek muscles & soften the jaw line in those who have a very square face. I would encourage you to see your dentist first to have your bite/ teeth alignment checked. Cost of muscle relaxing injections to masseters, at standard starting dose: £275

Sun Cream Products Explained

Most dermatologists advise that the best anti-ageing product you can buy is a good quality suncream. But which one? You may not realise it but over the counter products rarely cover the full spectrum of the sun’s rays.   The sun emits different types of harmful rays, predominantly Ultraviolet A and B (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 greater skin ageing. In fact, 80% of skin ageing comes from sun damage, being the largest of the extrinsic factors (ones we can potentially […]

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 […]

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. Frequently, however, I hear a complaint that they don’t work and that the skin feels dry and dull despite adhering to a strict moisturising regime, often with 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 well beyond teenage years? It is easy to misdiagnose rough skin for dryness and then start to moisturise, whereas exfoliation is what the skin really needed. Read on to learn […]

What Are Antioxidants and Why Do We Need Them?

The word ‘Antioxidant’ is often seen in beauty magazine articles, and most people will be aware that they are ‘a good thing’. But how much do we really know about what they are, why we need them, and how do we get them? To begin with, think of a freshly cut apple, left exposed for just a matter of minutes, and how it quickly browns. That is the process of oxidation, the oxygen in the atmosphere reacting with the cells on the inside of the apple. The cells in our bodies are designed to deal with oxidation, but 1-2% of […]
