Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am suffering from skin dryness and itchiness during mid-day and after my bath. What should I do?

A: First, you should consult a doctor to determine the cause of the dryness and itchiness. You may have to take nutrient pills for the skin and use a balancing moisturizer.

Q: I am 37 years old and I have flabbiness and deep wrinkles in my face. I am hesitant about surgery. What do you recommend?

A: It is important to consult a doctor to determine the most effective treatment. There are several techniques to eliminate wrinkles such as using Botox and other filling injections, but the effect is only temporary. We recommend using Thermaj technology where electromagnetic waves are directed to the skin tissue in order to break down ineffective collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen to restore the skin’s firmness.

Q: Do you advise using Chemical Peeling to treat pigmentation?

A: It is preferable to consult a doctor to determine the type of pigmentation. Chemical peeling is effective under the condition that a specialist performs it and the patient conforms to specific guidelines after undergoing it.

Q: What causes acne in adolescents?

A: When puberty occurs, the body begins to produce certain hormones, which motivate the sebaceous glands to enlarge, become more activate and produce more sebum. These hormones also alter the cells of hair follicles which may lead to combined fatty canals or acne.

Q: Does acne only appear during adolescence?

A: For reasons that remain unclear, acne may appear for the 1st time directly after puberty or later on during the thirties and forties. This delayed acne is more common with females than males because of hormonal changes with pregnancy, menstrual cycles, aging and the use of cosmetics and greasy creams.

Q: Does breast augmentation increase the risk of breast cancer?

A: There is no relation between cosmetic breast surgery and breast cancer. However, tiny calcifications can be caused by breast surgery; therefore, it is important to distinguish these from cancer tumor. For that, a specialized mammogram is used before the surgery and for 6 – 12 months after it. This is meant to determine the shape and nature of the existing calcifications and follow-up for the procedure.

Q: I have a problem with ingrown hairs in my leg which cause brown patches and pimples. What should I do?

A: Hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, often irritate the hair follicle. Dead cells can accumulate at the site of the irritation and form bumps which can also contain pus while the skin heals. To eliminate this problem, it is preferable to remove hair using laser.
