Frequently Asked Questions

What is eczema?

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is generally characterized as an itchy, red, scaly rash.

These symptoms often worsen at night, and the urge to itch can be intense enough to disrupt sleep. Many eczema patients scratch their skin until it breaks, leaving it prone to infection.

Babies who develop eczema before their first birthday get dry, red, scaly patches on their cheeks, forehead, and scalp. When the condition begins after the age of two, it’s more likely to cause rashes in the creases of a child’s elbows or knees, or along their neck, wrists, or ankles.

In adults, eczema is more likely to cover larger areas of the body and may be unusually severe on the neck, face, and around the eyes.

Approximately 90% of people who have eczema developed the condition before their fifth birthday. Although it’s a long-term condition, only about half of the people who develop childhood eczema continue to have symptoms as an adult.

What causes eczema?

Medical experts don’t know what causes eczema, but it appears to run in families along with other common childhood health issues. Many children who develop it are closely related to someone who has either eczema, hay fever, or asthma. Even though about half of all children with eczema continue to have mild symptoms as an adult, many of the babies who develop eczema in early infancy no longer have any symptoms by their second birthday.

How can eczema be controlled?

Proper treatment and a gentle skin care routine can go a long way in reducing eczema symptoms, avoiding skin infections, and preventing recurrence. We can develop a customized treatment plan that helps:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Relieve itching and pain
  • Clear any infection
  • Decrease new lesions

Effective eczema control also includes avoiding anything that may bring on a flare-up. While you may not always know the specific cause of an eczema break out, some of the most common triggers include:

  • Psychological stress
  • Sweaty skin
  • Irritating detergents and soaps  
  • Dry air and sunburns

Your daily skin care routine is also an essential aspect of eczema management. Use a mild, cleanser that’s fragrance-free, and keep your showers warm and relatively short, not hot and long. It’s also important to apply topical medications and moisturizers just after bathing, when your skin is still moist.

⚡️Laser hair removal offers a multitude of advantages over traditional shaving methods.

👉With fewer ingrown hairs and less irritation, laser hair removal saves time and minimizes the risk of nicks and cuts associated with shaving.

Who doesn’t adore beautifully enhanced lips? Let us unveil the enchanting process behind achieving those captivating pouts:

1️⃣Cleansing and numbing: The lips and surrounding areas are thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils that could increase the risk of infection. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the lips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

2️⃣Poking: Using a fine needle or cannula, the injector creates entry points or small punctures along the lip border or within the lips themselves.

3️⃣Injecting: The filler is carefully injected into the marked areas or along the lip borders, following the predetermined plan to achieve the desired shape and volume.

4️⃣Massaging: After injection, the injector may gently massage the lips to distribute the filler evenly and reduce the risk of lumps or irregularities.

5️⃣Assessment: Once the filler has been injected, the injector evaluates the results and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and natural-looking enhancement.

6️⃣Aftercare: Patients are advised on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, refraining from touching or pressing on the lips, and using cold compresses to reduce swelling.
