You’d be surprised how many people are walking around London with a tattoo they regret. Every time they catch sight of it their heart sinks and it makes them miserable, because they’ve moved on and they’re not the same person who thought it would be appropriate to cover themselves in that particular design. For that reason they can either cover it up or seek laser tattoo removal, which is one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted tattoos.
Many people have tattoos that they later regret, or which grow to irritate them. Here at our North London clinic, we see tattoos of all different shapes, sizes and colours, with a view to removing them from people who have grown tired of them.
The success of laser tattoo removal treatment largely depends on each individual design and a person’s skin type, so to help you have realistic expectations of the treatment time and methods involved, we’ve put together a list of factors you need to bear in mind:
April marks Rosacea Awareness Month, a month designated by the National Rosacea Society in the US and adopted by many people here in the UK to educate the public on this common but often misunderstood facial skin disorder.
In Britain, it is estimated that a staggering one in 10 people suffers from rosacea, and that about one in 600 people are diagnosed with the condition every year. Yet, despite how widespread rosacea is, the condition is still widely misunderstood.
If you have rosacea, you’ve probably come into contact with some of the myths and assumptions associated with the skin disorder. People often associate rosacea with heavy drinking, or assume that bumps and pimples caused by rosacea are the result of poor personal hygiene. As you no doubt know from personal experience, this is untrue. Rosacea has nothing to do with personal hygiene and, although alcohol can trigger a flare-up for some people, many teetotallers suffer too.
WASHINGTON, DC — An investigational anticholinergic topical gel is safe and effective for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, according to results from a phase 2b study.
Sofpironium bromide (BBI-4000, Brickell Biotech) is one of several topical products currently being investigated in clinical trials, said David Pariser, MD, professor of dermatology at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, who is founding president of the International Hyperhidrosis Society.
Our skin is the largest organ of the human body but it can also be one of the most neglected or vulnerable to damage. As well as being affected by genetics, your skin is prey to your lifestyle, environment, hormones, diet, age, and much more. This unique combination of factors means that you need a unique approach to finding the best skin treatments.
One of the reasons that The Private Skin Laser Clinic is in demand is that we’re based in the Dermatology department of the Royal Free Hospital in North London and staffed by a team of consultant dermatologists and laser clinicians. This enables us to combine a medical and cosmetic approach to the skin.
Although acne is one of the most common skin conditions, experienced by people throughout the world, it can also be one of the most troubling. Not only can active acne look and feel unpleasant but it can also leave scars that act as a lasting reminder of this confidence-draining condition.
A number of treatment options exist for treating acne and acne scars – some are more effective than others, and individual responses can vary widely.
Laser treatments are now part of the growing arsenal of treatments attempting to banish acne. Laser therapy works particularly well when preventing the papules and pustules associated with acne but may be less effective with non-inflammatory acne and severe lesions. As every case is different, it’s important to speak to an experienced dermatologist and laser treatment practitioner to get their advice about your individual case.
