Common Skin Concerns

Skin pigmentation disorders cause changes to the colour of your skin. Melanin is made by cells in the skin and is the pigment responsible for the colour of your skin, hair, and eyes. Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes your skin to darken.

A skin lesion is a part of the skin that has an abnormal growth or appearance compared to the skin around it. This could be a mole, skin tag, solar damage, or other benign growths. Primary skin lesions are abnormal skin conditions present at birth or acquired over a person’s lifetime. Secondary skin lesions are the result of irritated or manipulated primary skin lesions.

Scar revision is a procedure done on a scar to alter the appearance of the scar. The revision may improve the cosmetic appearance of the scar, restore function to a part of the body that may have been restricted by the scar, or improve an itchy scar.

We may lose our hair for many reasons. A more common cause is hereditary hair loss.

If you recently had an operation, high fever, or chemotherapy for cancer, it’s natural to shed lots of hair. A few months after giving birth, most women shed noticeable amounts of hair.

Your hair care or too-tight hairstyle could also be causing your hair loss. Some people who are otherwise healthy develop alopecia areata, a disease that can cause hair loss anywhere on their body. These are some the many reasons we see our hair fall out.

Broken Capillaries/Telangiectasia is a condition in which tiny blood vessels cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin. These patterns, or telangiectasis, form gradually and often in clusters. They’re sometimes known as “spider veins” because of their fine and weblike appearance.
