Ingrown hairs is a skin condition where hairs curl round and grown back into the skin. Ingrown hair most commonly appears in areas where the skin is shaved or waxed (beard, legs, pubic region), it can appear anywhere. They produce raised red spots, which can sometimes become infected and turn into painful pus-filled sores.
Ingrown hairs can be itchy and embarrassing, but they often go away on their own without having to do anything. If they do not go away, ingrown hairs can become infected, darken the skin, or leave behind scars, especially if you have scratched or picked the ingrown hairs areas.
Women develop excessive body or facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of androgens, including testosterone. All females produce androgens, but the levels typically remain low. Certain medical conditions can cause a woman to produce too many androgens. This can cause male-pattern hair growth and other male characteristics, such as a deep voice.
Acne is a skin condition that is very common and so many people suffer from this. This results to spot formation at the face, shoulders, chest and back. Acne could be mild, when it comes in the form of blackheads and whiteheads. There are other severe forms of acne which are cyst and others which may lead to scar formation. The mild form of acne rarely lead to scar formation. The sweat pores allow sweat out of the skin. When the sweat pores become blocked it results to acne.

Cellulite is a term for lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. A research shows over 80% of adults (mostly women) suffer from cellulite, and it is not always linked to excess weight. Cellulite can be distressing for the sufferer and difficult to treat.
Non-surgical body contouring also known as body sculpting, has become increasingly popular in recent years. While surgical options are still the gold standard in most cases, this trend towards providing patients with good aesthetic outcomes in less time, with less pain, and with less recovery time isn’t a temporary one.

Scars are the result of trauma to the skin, usually from sustaining an injury that can be as simple and small as a shaving nick, a skin condition such as acne, stretch marks or a surgical procedure.
Scars are the visible result of the skin’s natural healing process and formed when the body produces a lot of collagen that forms tissue that is thicker and tougher than the surrounding, healthy skin. As no new cells are generated where scars are, they often start out being very red or purple in colour, but usually fade to a pink or silver colour over time.
Keloid scars are those scars that are particularly raised and firm and they occur when the body continues to produce collagen after the wound is healed, essentially creating an overgrown scar.
As we know, stretch marks are silvery white lines that traverse on the surface of the skin just like veins or arteries. Stretch mark results from the skin stretching beyond its limit and losing its elasticity. The production of collagen is disrupted. Losing elastin and the disrupted production of collagen causes the skin to have stretch marks on the top layer of skin.
Stretch marks often occur in women and can be seen on the thighs, hips, butts and pregnant abdomens. They are often made worse by fast growth, pregnancy, hormones and some other natural causes.
Although most people love the warmth and light of the sun, too much sun exposure can significantly damage human skin. The sun’s heat dries out areas of unprotected skin and depletes the skin’s supply of natural lubricating oils. In addition, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause burning and long-term changes in the skin’s structure.

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.
Retention Hyperkeratosis is a hereditary condition in which dead skin cells fail to shed from the skin. This condition, which is one of many causes of acne, effects both the surface of the skin and the follicles or pores.
WRINKLES AND FINE LINES
Ageing is a fact of life and it usually shows most on our faces. This is largely due to our body making less collagen. Collagen is the substance that gives our skin a firm and youthful appearance. It acts as a support structure for our skin, provides overall volume and gives shape to our face. However, from an early age the amount we produce slows down and facial volume is lost.
Results may vary from person to person based on body size and other factors.
