Facial redness/flushing or blushing can be described as an involuntary reddening of the face, often due to embarrassment or stress but also just a reaction of the skin for no apparent reason. Rosacea – a general inflammation of the cheeks and face – can make you feel very self-conscious about your looks. We use IPL photo-facials to treat these conditions. Our special Palomar laser emits pulses of light into the skin, which are then absorbed by the blood in the visible veins, and converted to heat.
Sun spots /age spots or Liver spots – are usually caused by sun damage, although it can also be a side-effect of hormonal changes. We have two different treatments to help even out your skin colour – IPL photo-facials, and skin peels which can be combined with microdermabrasion for maximum effect.
Hyper-pigmentation – dark spots or patches on your skin – is usually caused by sun damage, although it can also be a side-effect of hormonal changes. We have two different treatments to help even out your skin colour – IPL photo-facials, and skin peels which can be combined with microdermabrasion for maximum effect.
Scars - Surgical, traumatic and acne
A scar is a patch or line of tissue that remains after a wound has healed. When a wound occurs and there is a break in some of the tissue in the body, the body heals it by producing more of a protein called collagen.
Scars gradually become smoother and softer and will fade but it is unlikely they will ever disappear and depending on the severity and location of them can cause distress if unsightly or very visible.
As we age our lips appear to thin out or almost `deflate`, losing the youthful look that we once had. The upper lip, in particular, is more prone to these signs of ageing. Using a series of simple injections, dermal fillers can enhance and create volume in the lips. No test dose is necessary and an immediately more youthful appearance is achieved. These treatments are only carried out by highly qualified medically trained staff.
At Stradbrook Skin we use a range of temporary hyaluronic acid fillers tailored to your individual needs
Upper eyelid surgery is a cost-effective operation with minimal downtime that instantly rejuvenates the face. It is ideal for those who have excess upper eyelid skin which gives a 'tired look'. It is performed under local anaesthetic (you are awake) as a daycase. It involves trimming the excess skin in the upper eyelids and removing any herniating fat. The sutures are removed at 5-7 days. The scar which is placed in the upper eyelid crease fades rapidly.
