Acne ~ Aging ~ Pigmentation ~ Rosacea Vascular Issues ~ Skin Type Issues
Effective clinical treatments for skin concerns or disorders
Chances are you have a complaint or two about your skin – whether it’s age spots on your cheeks, darker patches of skin on your face, flaring redness to your face or veins around your nose and cheeks.
But you don’t have to grimace and bear it
Making the Right Choices
Making the right choices about your skin care starts with knowing your skin type and any skin conditions (concerns or disorders) you might be suffering. The health and beauty of your skin later in life largely depends on what you eat and how you take care of yourself today. Knowing your skin type as well as any skin condition you might be suffering ensures the treatments you choose today are building a healthier and better skin for tomorrow.
It is important not to confuse your Skin Type with your Skin Concern. They are two very different things.
1. SKIN TYPES
Skin Types are Combination, Dry, Normal, Oily or Sensitive.
Skin types are genetically determined but choosing the best skin treatments and skin care for your face and body is essential to care for your skin’s health, to treat any existing conditions, to slow the aging process and to look your best! And more often than not, your skin concerns are actually caused by the skin care products you are applying, that is you are applying a product that exasperates the condition instead of solving the condition.
2. SKIN CONCERNS
Skin Concerns are conditions or disorders that are signs of an unhealthy or damaged skin. These conditions or disorders require treatment and/or application of skin care that can repair and replenish the health of your skin.
The more common skin conditions or disorders people suffer include;-
- Acne – pimples, pustules, breakouts, scarring
- Pigmentation / Hyperpigmentation – age or liver spots, freckles, melasma
- Rosacea – facial redness, sensitivity, lumps & bumps, pimples
- Aging – sun damage, fine lines & wrinkles
- Vascular – spider & thread veins, ruptured capillaries
- Uneven Skin Tone or Discolouration – enlarged pores, rough texture, darker skin patches
- Skin Tags – benign skin growths that resemble a small, soft balloon suspended on a slender stalk
It is equally important that any skin disorders or conditions you may suffer are diagnosed correctly and an appropriate and effective treatment plan be formulated to help alleviate the condition or disorder.
If you are uncertain about any skin disorder or condition you might be suffering, then we suggest you book a Skin Analysis and Assessment at Nascent Skin and Beauty Clinic with our Skin Specialist.

Today’s Treatments Create Tomorrow’s Skin
We all need a certain amount of oil on our skin to keep it moisturised and supple, however oily skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin.
At its most basic level, sensitive skin is a general, non-medical term for skin that easily breaks out into rashes or experiences blotchy, itchy or stinging reactions from the weather or more commonly from the use of the wrong skincare.
