Treatment of Acne Scars

At BrightNewMe we have multiple ways to treat acne scars, and often a combination of treatments might be indicated for best results.  Your options would always be discussed in advance, following a detailed consultation, which would include a detailed assessment of your skin. Some of those options are detailed below. EDS Micro-needling Micro-needling is particularly effective for treating scar tissue. The creation of thousands of microchannels causes the body to increase the production of collagen, and in doing so helps to smooth out the scar tissue for a more even appearance.   Prescription skincare I also use prescription skin care, […]

Is your skin often red?

Rosacea can affect both the skin’s appearance and texture. It is easily recognisable if the skin is visibly pink or red in colour, however sometimes it can present as transient redness, such as flushing with spicy food or alcohol. Quite often with rosacea, there is also an increased number of visible telangiectasias – these usually appear on the central part of the face, in a symmetrical distribution. There is no specific diagnostic test for the condition, nor is there any ‘cure’ as such. However, its symptoms can be managed with lifestyle modifications, an appropriate skincare regime, prescription-grade topical products and […]

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 […]

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 acceleration of ageing of the skin. The sun also emits Infra-Red (IR) rays which can damage collagen. Furthermore we get skin damage from HEV (High […]
