Acne – What You Need To Know

Do you have pores? Pores are mild blackheads, and so, technically, you have a mild form of one type of acne. Acne is a cause of angst for many a teenager, and adults too. I have a number of patients who have battled acne for years, and tried numerous different products, all to little or no avail. But what exactly is acne, what causes it, how common is it and what can be done to prevent and treat it? Contrary to urban myth, acne is not caused by dirty skin and poor hygiene. It arises when the tiny holes 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?

You don’t have to suffer from enlarged pores, blackheads, whiteheads or spots- effective treatment is available. Pores appear when the hair follicle duct becomes blocked with sebum (oil) and dead skin. If the pores are open the contents oxidise & darken and appear as blackheads. Whiteheads are the same but with the neck of the duct sealed, as shown below.   These conditions will respond to appropriate skin care. Medical grade skin care has a higher concentration of active ingredients and is much more effective than anything you can buy over the counter. For a skin regime to tackle pores […]

2018 London Injectables Masterclass

I was thrilled and honoured to be invited to a 2-day Masterclass in London in early March, hosted by Allergan, the manufacturers of Botox® and Juvederm® dermal fillers. I was especially lucky to be able to get there in the snow – 100 delegates (out of the 250 invited in the UK) had been unable to travel! This is the 6th time I have seen Mauricio de Maio, a Brazilian plastic surgeon recognised as THE leading injector of dermal fillers in the world. Mauricio has pioneered injection procedures – having invented the 8-Point Face Lift and refined the technique each […]
