Glycolic acid is my number one choice for sundamaged skin, closing open pores and brightening the skin

Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance found in our own bodies, it is responsible for soft plump skin also, use a serum with a high concentrate or derma fillers such as Restylane or Emervel to help lift out lines and wrinkles.

Ice picks scars or chicken pox scars can effect a persons confidence especially on the face area, derma pen and dermal fillers can really help lessen the appearance.

Laughter lines, try a natural dermal filler to help lessen the depth of these agi g lines to the sides of the mouth and the cheeks, for a natural unfrozen look

Make up is important to most women, find a professional to help you find the right colour and product type for your skin, blocking your pores and bad colour choice is not a good look

Young Skin Problems

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013


Two Part Series on Skin Solutions

Part One – Younger Skin Concerns

This month I will be addressing skin concerns for younger people and tips on how to help. With the Christmas season now in full swing we can see the effects it can have on our skin’s appearance and energy levels. Drink lots of water, keep hydrating your skin, I love Suisse Absolue Serum Hydra which is like a glass of water to the skin. Also don’t forget your daily vitamin C and zinc, echinacea and astragalus to help your immunity. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year, see you in 2014.

Problem 1

Acne, Scars and Blemishes

Using good antibacterial washes which contain glycolic and salicylic acid are great for soaking up the excessive oil and helping to prevent outbreaks. As well as good hygiene also seek medical advice as antibiotics in some cases are needed. Laser treatments and skin peeling can really help and taking vitamin C and zinc daily to help heal the skin is really useful.
Scarring can be greatly improved with deeper peeling and derma stamp treatments.

Problem 2


This can be caused by environmental factors, hormonal or due to medications. Younger girls taking the oral contraception pill beware! Some pills can cause dark areas to appear on the face and body (especially top lip), use a daily SPF protector, avoid sun beds and direct sun as it can get darker. Pigmentation can also be a real problem for olive and darker skin types especially when the skin is very dry. Using a face protector and creams to help break down pigment can be useful as well as considering skin peeling and light treatments.

Problem 3

Stretch Marks

Often associated with pregnancy, but can affect you during puberty, teenage girls can notice them to the leg, buttock and breast area during the growing spurt. Men can also be affected. It is easier to treat stretch marks sooner rather than later, red marks can be lessened using lasers or derma rollers to the area to boost collagen. Essentially these marks are a micro tear in the dermis and will never go, but the appearance of them can be greatly reduced.

Problem 4

Unwanted Hair

There are so many hair removal techniques out there, it’s basically finding the one that suits you! Laser hair removal is great, but you do need to attend the treatments regularly and at the correct time of the hair growth cycle to get the results you want. Waxing is great for some, but for others can cause ingrown hairs, glycolic acid based products and peeling agents are particularly useful to help treat them. Men often find that when they shave this can be a problem also and glycolic acid creams can help. Hair removal creams can irritate sensitive skins so patch test a small area first to ensure it is safe to use.

Problem 5

Dry Skin and Eczema

Common factors with eczema is scratching especially at night, tips like using your prescribed creams and moisturising agents as instructed will help. Ensure you are not too hot in bed, wear loose cotton clothing, try wearing cotton gloves at night to stop scratching and tearing the skin. Antihistamines can also help and be prescribed. Bionic lotion from Neostrata is a good cream for the face if you are prone to eczema or excessive dryness and won’t thin or irritate the skin. Also protect your skin with non irritating and sensitive SPF protectors like Cetaphil.

Gum disease and how to avoid it

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Don’t forget your toothbrush it might be a lifesaver

20130819-210453Going to the dentist can be a chore but a necessity if we want to keep our own teeth. But there may be more broad ranging benefits. Regular check-ups, clean teeth and a healthy mouth could increase lifespan and lead to early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a range of diseases from anaemia to heart problems.

Experts are increasingly discovering links between gum disease, which affects half the population, and dozens of other illnesses. Studies are also showing that treating it can lead to improvements in many of the conditions. The British Dental Association’s scientific advisor, Professor Damian Walmsley, says “the good news is that most cases of gum disease are treatable and, more importantly, preventable”.

Here we outline the ways in which good oral hygiene – brushing teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, restricting intake of sugary foods and drinks to mealtimes, stopping smoking and visiting the hygienist twice a year (or more often if you have problems) can boost overall health.

Heart Disease & Stroke

Gum disease usually begins with a build up of plaque, a sticky coating made up of food and bacteria that can lead to irritation of the gums and bleeding. Research at New York State University showed that treating periodontal disease (gum disease) with scaling, deep gum cleaning and antibiotic gel significantly lowered the levels of C-reactive protein and fibrinogen, which are associated with a higher risk of heart disease.

In a second study at Sydney Dental Hospital, dentists removed teeth from about 70 patients with advanced types of gum disease and found a big drop in levels of the same compounds associated with heart disease risk. One theory is that periodontal bacteria get into the bloodstream and travel to major organs to begin new infections. It has also been suggested that the bacteria causing gum disease could increase the rate at which arteries become blocked.

There may be a similar risk with stroke. Research based on 9,000 adults tracked for 15 years found that women with antibodies to P. gingivalis, the organism most associated with periodontal disease, were twice as likely to get a stroke.

High Blood Pressure

A report from cardiologists at the University of Athens says there is a link between chronic periodontitis and increase in blood pressure levels (hypertension).

Lung disease

Links have been found between oral health and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, or COPD, a respiratory condition whose main cause is cigarette smoking. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, oral and other bacteria can get into the lungs to cause frequent bouts of infection in patients with COPD.


Gum disease rates have been found to be threefold higher in people with diabetes. A study by the US National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Disease found a link between severity of periodontal disease and mortality in diabetes patients. Researchers at Newcastle University say there is evidence of a two-way effect, with diabetes increasing the risk for periodontitis, and periodontal inflammation worsening blood sugar control.

Premature Birth

Researchers have found higher rates of premature babies amongst women with periodontal disease. Research at the University of Alabama is showing that gum infections trigger an increase in the levels of prostaglandin and other compounds that induce labour.  The researchers were able to reduce premature birth by up to 84% in women who received scaling and deep gum cleaning when they were less than 35 weeks pregnant.


In periodontitis, there is a loss of bone around the roots of teeth, and this, as well as the loss of the soft tissue attachment to the teeth, is a major cause of teeth loss in adults. It has been suggested that in some patients, gum disease could be an early indicator of the bone thinning condition osteoporosis.

Early Death

Those with severe gum disease were twice as likely to die, of any cause, before the age of 64 as those with no disease, according to a study based on a nationally representative US sample of 11000 people aged over 30.

Jessica is our hygienist at Smile Design By Ash. She works here on Mondays and Thursdays.

For advanced problems, we refer our patients to a periodontist (gum specialist) www.al-faperio.co.uk Brush your teeth properly, clean between the teeth daily with floss and micro brushes, and get your gums cleaned regularly by a hygienist. It’s that simple!
