Scars

As we go about living life, many of us may end up in situations that lead to scarring.

This may be due to acne in our adolescent years or even beyond, that leaves depressions in our skin once the acne has been controlled, which leads to embarrassment or unwanted

Whatever your issue or concern is, we may be able to help.

 

As with most things at Skin Essentials, it begins with a consultation of your concerns, including all treatment options tried to date. Depending on the type of concern, and scar, we may be able to help you. If we cannot, or lack the appropriate equipment, Dr Joshi can

With age, that fat shifts […]
