Our skin is made up of millions of cells that protect us from the environment and regulate our body temperature. Every day thousands of cells die, flake off and are replaced by new cells from beneath the skin. However, as we age this process begins to slow down. Our skin may become dull with dark blotches, Fine Lines & Wrinkles and other signs of Skin Ageing and Sun-Damage begin to appear.
At the Me Clinic we have been practising Cosmetic Medicine and treating Skin Conditions for over 35 years. We have developed Treatments and Treatment Plans and Programs that slow down and reverse the Skin Ageing process and also treat many kinds of Skin Conditions and problems.
A no obligation consultation with one of our Cosmetic Physicians and Clinicians or Aestheticians is essential so your skin and its condition can be examined and assessed for the most suitable treatments or program for the following Skin Conditions.
If you have been through the distress and embarrassment of Acne and tried many treatments to resolve it then you will be happy to hear this. It is not surprising that many treatments are not successful because they are not treating the underlying causes of Acne.More
Acne Scars unfortunately are a reminder for Acne sufferers of their past skin conditions.More
As you get older your skin is less effective at regeneration as a result of genetic factors and sun exposure which leads to the formation of age spots. Whilst Age Spots are generally not indicative of your age; they are the consequence of years of sun exposure.More
Birthmarks are benign irregularities on the skin which are present at birth or develop soon after. They can occur anywhere on the skin, and are divided into 2 major types Vascular and Pigmented.More
Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in our body. When they are dilated or increased in number the affected area appears red and flushed and often blotchy. This can be caused by genetics, sun exposure, environmental and chemical factors.More
As you age your skin loses the ability to regenerate collagen to the extent it once did when you were younger. Production of collagen reduces and the elastin in your skin starts to break down causing the appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles.More
As we age, the production of collagen decreases and skin cells lose the ability to retain an even texture, firmness, moisture and tone. Several factors contribute to Dry Skin and Uneven Skin Texture.More
Unsightly Facial Veins & Spider Veins and Capillaries & Skin Redness on the face affect millions of people.More
As your skin ages the collagen production slows down and elastin in you skin starts to become lax causing the appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles. In addition less volume becomes apparent in the face also causing Fine Lines and Wrinkles and also Deep Lines & Wrinkles.More
Freckles most commonly occur in fairer complexion people and in those who have a genetic predisposition to developing freckles. Freckles are normally seen in clusters and can appear on many areas of the body and generally start to appear in childhood.More
Haemangiomas are abnormal blood vessels which can appear anywhere on the body. They may appear as little red spots on the skin or can involve large areas of the skin and can even extend beneath the skin. Haemangiomas vary in colour and shade and may be present at birth (birthmarks) or develop over time.More
Hyper-Pigmentation or Excessive Skin Pigmentation is a result of abnormal production and deposition of melanin by the melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment-producing cells. The numbers of melanocytes present in our skin and their rate of pigment production determines our skin colour.More
As we age we start to notice lines and wrinkles, our skin loses its collagen and elasticity and our skin starts to loosen and droop. The youthful glow that we once had starts to disappear and we lose volume and contour from our faces. All these changes become even more prominent the more we age.More
Melasma is a form of Hyper-Pigmentation stimulated by factors such as genetics, oestrogen, ultra violet exposure, and also unknown factors. In pregnancy the Hyper-Pigmentation is known as chloasma. It appears as large brown-grey patches on the face and it is usually located on the cheeks, upper lip, between the brows, or on the forehead.More
Whilst moles are not particularly large on the scale of physical things, they can have a significant impact on our appearance and/or our self-confidence. In some cases if left unchecked and untreated they can become life threatening Skin Cancers.More
Pores are the openings of the hair follicles which house the hair and oil gland. The size of the pore is attributed to the size of the oil gland and hair shaft that it contains. Open Pores can occur anywhere on your body but occur mainly on the face, nose and neck.More
The true cause of Rosacea is still unknown but some believe that a mite (called Demodex folliculorum) that lives in the skin is the cause of Rosacea.More
Scar formation can be a normal part of the healing process. In some cases scar tissue formation can be excessive. The two types of excessive scar tissue formation are known as keloid and hypertrophic scarring.More
Seborrheic Warts or Seborrheic Keratosis are non-cancerous benign skin growths that originate in the Keratinocytes of the skin.More
As we age our skin becomes thinner and more easily damaged. This is compounded by our skinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reduced ability to heal itself as we age.More
Skin Cancers are named after the type of skin cell they arise from. Carcinoma (Basel cell cancer or BCC) originate from the lowest layer of the epidermis. It is the most common but least dangerous Skin Cancer.More
Skin Lesions are any abnormality in the skin, and can be patch or growth on the skin, that does not resemble the surrounding skin. Moles, Birthmarks, Skin Cancers, Warts are all forms of Skin LesionsMore
Skin Tags are small benign tumours that form mainly in areas where skin creases form e.g. armpits, groin, neck and under womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s breasts, and may also develop on the face and eye lids. Skin Tags can become red and irritated by jewellery, clothing or shaving and may be unsightly.More
Skin Vessels are naturally occurring in our bodies. However, when Skin Vessels increase in size or number it causes Skin Redness and visible individual vessels on the skin. They can be unsightly and can cause health problems as varicose veins in the legs.More
Solar Keratosis is a pre malignant condition which appears as thick scaly patches on the skin. It is more common in fair skinned individuals who have had a lot of sun exposure and developed Sun Damaged skin.More
One of the most common Skin Conditions we are asked to treat at the Me Clinic is Sun-Damage caused by excessive exposure to the sun.More
As you age your skin regeneration process slows down for any number of reasons. In addition Sun Damage, Acne, Acne Scars, and genetics, Skin Conditions and other environmental factors can cause the formation of Uneven Skin Texture.More
