Skin Disorders or Concerns
Effective clinical skin care treatments for skin concerns or disorders
Chances are you have a complaint or two about your skin – whether it’s age spots on your cheeks, darker patches of skin on your face, flaring redness to your face or veins around your nose and cheeks.
But you don’t have to grimace and bear it.
Making the right choices about your skin care starts with knowing your skin type and any skin concerns (conditions or disorders) you might be suffering. The health and beauty of your skin later in life largely depends on what you eat and how you take care of yourself today. Knowing your skin type as well as any skin condition you might be suffering ensures the treatments you choose today are building a healthier and better skin for tomorrow.
It is important not to confuse your Skin Type with your Skin Concern. They are two very different things.
Skin Types are Combination, Dry, Normal, Oily or Sensitive.
Skin Concerns are conditions or disorders such as acne, pigmentation, rosacea, vascular (spider and thread veins, ruptured capillaries), sun damage or the inevitable signs of ageing with fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and loss of skin tone.
Different skin types are genetically determined but choosing the best skin treatments and skin care for your face and body is essential to care for your skin’s health, to treat any existing conditions, to slow the ageing process and to look your best! And more often than not, your skin concerns are actually caused by the skin care products you are applying, that is you are applying a product that exasperates the condition instead of solving the condition.
If you are uncertain about any skin disorder or condition you might be suffering, then it would be best to seek a Skin Analysis and Assessment from a Skin Specialist. At Nascent Skin and Beauty Clinic we offer this as a FREE service to clients.
The more common skin conditions or disorders people suffer include;-
- Acne – pimples, pustules, breakouts, scarring
- Pigmentation / Hyperpigmentation – age or liver spots, freckles, melasma
- Rosacea – facial redness, sensitivity, lumps & bumps, pimples
- Ageing – sun damage, fine lines & wrinkles
- Vascular – spider & thread veins, ruptured capillaries
- Uneven Skin Tone or Discolouration – enlarged pores, rough texture, darker skin patches
It is equally important that any skin disorders or conditions you may suffer are diagnosed correctly and an appropriate and effective treatment plan be formulated to help alleviate the condition or disorder.

Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin.
Acne is a major contributor to low self esteem and self confidence when it comes to facial appearance. Acne is not only seen in adolescents, as many adults also suffer from significant acne. Hormonal changes, bacterial infections and imbalances in your body chemistry can cause acne breakouts which are painful, embarrassing and can lower your self-confidence.
Sun damaged skin is a fact of life when living in the wonderful climate of Australia. Although the weather here is wonderful and full of warmth and sunshine, we also live in a country where the ozone layer is greatly depleted. This magnifies the strength of sunburn and increases surface UVB levels which leads to skin that is constantly exposed to a harsh sun and more prone to sun damage.
The ageing process that takes place from our 20’s and onward is related to both Intrinsic and Extrinsic Ageing Factors.
Uneven skin tone is a common skin problem which in most cases will be a form of pigmentation but without the more obvious dark sun or liver spots associated with pigmentation.
Discolouration or Uneven Skin Tone on the skin surface can be seen as brown to grey-brown patches, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin, and above their upper lip. It also can appear on other parts of the body that get lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck.
Pigmentation or Hyperpigmentation means colouring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the colour of your skin. Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Signs of skin pigmentation damage include brown spots and blotches on your face and hands, freckles and uneven skin tone.
Rosacea is a non-contagious skin inflammation that exclusively affects the face. The small surface blood vessels (capillaries) of the skin enlarge, giving the appearance of a permanent flush. It regularly flares up with alcohol, stress, climate changes but can also be from many other circumstances. In more extreme cases the forehead, cheeks and chin may develop yellow-headed pimples.
A condition in which widened venules (tiny blood vessels) cause thread like red lines or patterns on the skin. These patterns, or telangiectases, form gradually and often in clusters. They’re sometimes known as “spider or thread veins” because of their fine and web-like appearance. Common in areas that are easily seen (such as the lips, nose, eyes, fingers, and cheeks). They can cause discomfort from the pressure on the venules; can cause itching; and some people find them unattractive and have them removed. They develop gradually, but can be worsened by health and beauty products that cause skin irritation, such as abrasive soaps and sponges.
