Life is good. You have a good career at work, and you feel fit and healthy. Your social life couldn’t be better, and you have just returned from your holidays refreshed and looking good. Then last night you went to the gym and a friend pointed out a blotch on your back.

You didn’t think much about it at the time, but you struggled to sleep as your worried mind is active. On waking you decide to have a look on your phone to look for any help and advice. It is time to look locally at available services and make a booking with a clinic for a skin check.

There’s every chance that it is nothing to worry about, but as the saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry. Maybe it might just be a case of adding to your diet and eat healthily with foods that are good for your complexion. It’s certainly wise to let the experts make the diagnosis so you can rest easy.

Why it’s vital to get checked out?

In many cases you will be in perfect health, or at least feel like you are. But underneath your skin all might not be well. Having an early check-up and detection offers a great chance of protection against potentially fatal consequences.

Expert care is at hand who specialise in skin cancer when checking you. Your treatment will be quick and easy, carried out by state-of-the-art systems which detect any problems. Government information on skin is freely available. 

Alternatively, perhaps you are interested in cosmetic skin treatment to alleviate wrinkles, scarring, and discolouring. In recent years skincare has seen the development of several non-surgical treatments to help you stall your aging process and do wonders for your confidence. 

Your treatment options

Laser Resurfacing is a procedure that uses many pulses of light beams in the targeted area of your skin. The layers of your outer skin are destroyed while new cells develop, while the heat from the laser produces the protein collagen, which is the reason for skin tightening and smoothness.

Botulinum toxin, more commonly shortened to Botox, has become very popular over the last few years as a way of making wrinkles relax and soften, improving their looks. The injections block signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the injected muscle can’t contract.

Dermabrasion will be carried out by a dermatologist who will use an exfoliating device to remove the outer layers of your skin, thus revealing younger fresher layers. The process will last for years, but can cause some soreness in the aftermath after a few days. Microdermabrasion is a less intense version of a dermabrasion which is carried out by a licensed skin care specialist and takes around half an hour to perform. 

Take care of your skin

Whether you decide that you wish to enhance your appearance or are concerned about a new mark on your skin, it’s imperative you visit a registered clinic with qualified skincare specialists to look after your health.
