Acne is a skin condition that is commonly associated with pimples, papules, cysts, whiteheads, and blackheads. It can be associated with excess bacteria, often linked to excess oil in the skin, can be related to rosacea, as well as caused by hormonal changes.
Cellulite is present in over 80% of the female population and some men! It is caused by fat becoming caught between fibrous bands (collagen) that have stretched and weakened over time, causing a dimpling effect on the surface of the skin.
Dark circles under the eyes are a cosmetic complexity, which, concern many aging individuals because it makes them appear tired. On the plus side, there are excellent skincare and mineral makeup options that can help treat and brighten the appearance of the area.
As the skin ages, the process of natural skin exfoliation (referred to as desquamation) slows down. When this occurs, the healthy young skin cells are lying beneath a barrier of dead dry surface cells. This can cause the skin to look uneven, rough, dry and dull.
Fine lines are often caused by sun damage, exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke, and chronic muscle contraction during facial expressions. In most cases, fine lines are easily corrected through SilkPeel Dermalinfusion treatments, chemical peels, facials, and properly prescribed skincare.
Melasma is a condition that appears as patchy brown spots (hyperpigmentation) on the face that is often related to hormonal changes in the body. Many have referred to Melasma as “the mask of pregnancy” due to its common link to hormonal changes with pregnancy.
Redness is commonly associated with sun damage. The skin produces a reactionary response of redness (dilation of blood vessels) when it is traumatized (ie: in instances of sunburn or heat) that over time results is a network of very fine blood vessels the network together to produce a background red appearance in the skin.
A scar depends on the original cause of the injury or wound, the care provided to the wound, the area of the body, and the general health of the individual. If a wound is cared for properly, the resulting scar tissue may be minimized and sometimes unnoticeable. In other cases, a scar may still develop and require revision or remodeling through laser treatments, SilkPeel, or prescription skincare.
Skin laxity is caused by both internal aging factors linked to genetic and diet as well as external aging factors linked to exposure to aging elements such as smoke, smog, sun and free radicals. Over time the fibers that hold the skin tissue intact begin to weaken and break, causing gaps in skin tissue and less elasticity (or spring).
Spider veins are ancillary branches of the deeper network of veins in your body. Most often seen as small purplish/red leg veins, and often confused with reticular veins (larger blue veins), these veins have developed over time to support the vascular system most often in times of trauma and/or constant wear and tear on the body (ie: standing or sitting for long periods of time, competitive athlete, pressure changes to the body – flight attendants and pilots).
Sun Damage & Sun Spots
Sun exposure is the greatest contributor to aging skin. Sun damage presents itself in the form of solar lentigos (brown sun spots), redness and telangiectasias (tiny spider veins), skin laxity (thin skin tissue) and solar elastosis (loss of elasticity). Sun damage typically begins early in life during sun exposure. Sun spots, resulting from sun damage may be corrected through IPL, laser treatments, and properly prescribed medical grade skincare.

Hair growth is a natural part of the aging process. As our hormone production changes, so does our hair growth. This often leads to unwanted hair growth in areas we would prefer to be bare. Laser hair removal is a simple and fast-acting procedure to destroy the hair follicles and minimize unwanted hair regrowth

As you age, you gradually lose volume in the face due to fat, muscle and bone loss. With these areas starting to sag that used to be plump (jowls), and others areas starting to recede that used to be full (apples of the cheeks, chin), the underlying structure of the face begins to “age”. Dermal fillers are often used in these individuals to replace areas of volume loss, redefine aesthetic features, and smooth unwanted wrinkles.
Wrinkles can be caused by either dynamic muscle movement known as expression lines from smiling (crow’s feet), frowning (brow furrows), and surprise (raising forehead lines), lip lines from pursing or sucking movements (perioral), or caused by changes in the underlying volume structures and connective tissues of the face such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), marionette lines (lines form corners of the mouth to the chin), lip wrinkles (due to lack of volume in the lip), and cheeks (vertical lines due to volue loss and sun damage).
