Sun Damage – Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces more melanin which is the pigment that gives skin its colour. It affects people of all skin types. Some forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma and sunspots, are more likely to affect areas of skin that face sun exposure, including the face, arms, and legs.

Angiomas

Angiomas are benign tumours derived from cells of the vascular, lymphatic vessel walls (endothelium) or derived from cells of the tissues surrounding these vessels. They are a frequent occurrence as people age but they might be an indicator of systemic problems such as liver disease.

Acne

Acne occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with dead skin cells and oil. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, chest, upper back and shoulders. It is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.

Skin Conditions

Aging & Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As people get older, their skin gets drier, thinner and less elastic, resulting in less able to protect itself from damage. This leads to wrinkles, creases and lines on the skin.

Facial Veins

Broken blood vessels also called “spider veins”, occur when they are dilated or enlarged just beneath your skin’s surface, resulting in small, red lines that spread out into a web-shaped form. They are developed more commonly on the face and legs but they can develop anywhere on the body.

Skin Conditions

Scarring

When the skin gets damaged, your body naturally repairs the damage. The way your body repairs the damage depends on how deeply the injury penetrates your skin. To repair the damage that goes deep, your body makes a tissue that is thicker than your skin and this thicker tissue often becomes a scar.
