Are wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots or tattoos keeping you from putting your best face forward?
Fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or any area of your body including face, hands, and arms are inevitable sign of aging but not necessarily being old – wrinkles may begin to form at the outside corners of your eyes when you hit your mid-twenties.
Frown lines, which appear between your eyebrows, can make you look sad no matter how happy you are – they can also make you look perpetually tired even if you feel well rested.
Scars from acne can seem like double punishment – first you had to deal with the pimples, now you have marks as a reminder.
Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.
1 in 7 (14%) of the 21% of Americans who have a tattoo regret getting it, but you’re not alone. 19% of Britons and 11% of Italians with tattoos regretted them. Of those seeking removals, more than half reported that they had “suffered embarrassment”. A new job, problems with clothes, and a significant life event were also commonly cited as motivations. Still others simply want to clean the slate for new ink.
