NORMAL SKIN

What is Sensitive Skin?


Sensitive skin is sometimes referred to as a skin type, but it's possible to have oily and sensitive skin, or dry and sensitive skin for example. Sensitive skin is skin that is easily irritated by different factors that are generally tolerated by well-balanced skin, such as skin care products or high and low temperatures. It occurs when skin’s natural barrier function is compromised, causing water loss and allowing penetration of irritants. For some people, sensitive skin is a permanent condition, for others, sensitivity is triggered by certain internal and external factors. You may be able to determine what triggers skin sensitive and avoid certain ingredients or environmental factors. Symptoms are exacerbated by factors that facial skin is most exposed to, from the sun to some ingredients in cosmetics and cleansers. Sensitive skin may be itchy, red or feel like it's burning.

COMBINATION SKIN

Lines and Wrinkles


Lines will often appear in this area as we age, due to the skin becoming drier, less supple and simply due to normal facial expressions.

The best treatment for these lines is anti-wrinkle injections like Botox, this will relax the muscles, allowing the skin to heal the lines.

If you want to avoid injectable treatments, other treatments will soften the lines, but they will not be able to get rid of them, due to the natural movement of the muscles recreating the lines.
