• ACNE

    What is Acne?

    Acne is a skin condition characterized by spots, blackheads, and pimples of varying sizes. It commonly affects the face, neck, shoulders, and back, causing discomfort and self-consciousness. While often associated with adolescents, adults can also develop acne due to genetics, aging, and hormonal changes, which influence sebum (oil) production. Hormonal fluctuations, such as during pregnancy or menopause, can also trigger acne in women.

    What causes Acne?

    Acne primarily results from blocked pores, caused by a buildup of dirt, debris, and dead skin cells. Excess sebum accelerates this process. When excess oil mixes with skin bacteria, it can lead to pus, inflammation, and infection. Friction or pressure from items like helmets, face masks, and clothing can aggravate acne by providing a warm, moist environment for acne bacteria (P. acnes) to thrive.

    What are aging hands?

    Aging hands often reveal a person's age, showing concerns like loss of volume, wrinkles, crepey skin, dryness, age spots, and prominent veins. Hands are constantly active and frequently exposed to soaps and various products, contributing to these signs of aging.

    What causes Aging hands?

    The main cause of aging hands is the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, leading to thinner skin and decreased tissue density. This makes veins more noticeable. Sun exposure accelerates aging by breaking down collagen and increasing melanin production, resulting in age spots. UV rays damage internal cells, causing small dark patches where excess melanin accumulates.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide treatments to rejuvenate and revitalise ageing hands. Our treatments include:

    Lumecca: An advanced IPL treatment that reduces age spots and sun damage, improving overall skin tone and appearance.

    Dermal Fillers: These restore volume and smooth out wrinkles, making hands look fuller and more youthful.

    Chemical Peel: This treatment exfoliates the skin, promoting cell turnover and reducing the appearance of age spots and fine lines.


    What is a double chin?

    A double chin refers to the excess fatty tissue and skin beneath the chin and around the neck, often giving the lower face a heavier appearance and reducing jawline definition.

    What are the causes?

    A double chin can result from weight gain, where excess fat accumulates beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat). Poor diet, alcohol consumption, and lack of exercise contribute to this. Aging also plays a role, as the skin loses elasticity and sags, creating space for fat to settle. Additionally, a genetically weaker jawline and chin can cause the chin to sit further back, making the area appear fuller and more pronounced.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, a comprehensive consultation can help determine the best treatment for improving the appearance of a double chin. Our treatments include:

    Morpheus 8: This advanced treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the skin, reducing the appearance of a double chin.

    High Profile: This treatment focuses on enhancing the definition of the lower face, improving jawline strength and contour.

    Flab to Fab: A tailored approach that targets fat reduction and skin tightening, helping to sculpt and define the lower face.


    What is dull/dry skin?

    Dull or dry skin is characterized by a rough texture and a lack of radiant glow. This common issue affects both men and women, especially as they age.

    What are the causes?

    Dull or dry skin often results from aging, which reduces the skin's hydration levels and decreases collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. Lifestyle and environmental factors, such as sun exposure, smoking, extreme weather, and central heating, can also deplete the skin's moisture. Dry skin can hinder natural cell turnover, causing dead skin cells to accumulate and reflect less light, making the skin appear lifeless and dull.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer treatments to hydrate and revitalise dull, dry skin. Our treatments include:

    Artisan Signature Facial: A comprehensive facial treatment that deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin, leaving it refreshed and glowing.

    Hydrafacial: This treatment provides deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration, resulting in a brighter and more radiant complexion.

    Microneedling with Exosomes: This advanced procedure stimulates collagen production and enhances skin texture, providing intensive hydration and revitalisation.


    What is hyperhidrosis?

    Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating, affecting both men and women. It commonly occurs on the palms, soles of the feet, and underarms, often causing embarrassment and the need to conceal damp patches on clothing. Unwanted odor can accompany excessive sweating.

    What are the causes?

    Hyperhidrosis occurs when the sweat glands produce and secrete an excess of moisture. This overproduction can stem from various factors including stress, hormone fluctuations, anxiety, and naturally overactive sweat glands. While sweating is a natural cooling mechanism for the body, those with hyperhidrosis may sweat excessively regardless of body temperature. Hormonal changes, such as during nervousness or menopause, can trigger excessive perspiration due to the control of the sebaceous glands by hormones.

    Additionally, overactive sweat glands may be symptomatic of certain medical conditions such as diabetes, low blood sugar, nervous system disorders, infections, and thyroid issues.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide effective solutions for managing excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Our treatment includes:

    Don't Sweat It: This treatment involves botulinum toxin injections, which block the nerve signals responsible for sweating. It targets areas such as the underarms, hands, and feet, reducing perspiration and providing long-lasting results, thus improving comfort and confidence.


    What is facial volume loss?

    Facial volume loss is primarily associated with aging, typically affecting individuals in their 40s or 50s. This condition presents various concerns, including flattened cheeks, sagging skin, jowls, thin lips, and sunken temples. It predominantly impacts the mid to lower part of the face, stemming from a reduction in tissue density within the skin's middle layers (dermis).

    What are the causes?

    Collagen, a vital component maintaining youthful volume in the skin, starts declining in production around the age of 20, decreasing by approximately 1-1.5% annually. While the effects may take years to become noticeable, this gradual decline contributes to weakened and thinner skin over time. Additionally, as the skin loses elasticity and hydration, its ability to bounce back diminishes. Combined, these factors result in loose, sagging skin around the lower face and jawline, imparting a tired appearance.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer treatments to restore facial volume and contour. Our treatments include:

    Contour and Correct: This treatment uses advanced techniques to replenish lost volume and enhance facial features, providing a more youthful appearance.

    Sculptra: An injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production, gradually restoring facial volume and improving skin texture and elasticity.

    High Profile: This procedure focuses on enhancing facial contours and lifting sagging skin, resulting in a firmer, more defined look.


    What is hyperpigmentation?

    Hyperpigmentation occurs in the skin when underlying cells are damaged, resulting in discolored patches that are often darker than surrounding skin. Common examples include age spots, also known as sunspots or solar lentigines, which are forms of hyperpigmentation. Conversely, when areas of skin appear lighter than surrounding skin, it's known as hypopigmentation, which can manifest more widely.

    What are the causes?

    Hyperpigmentation often affects areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, shoulders, and hands. Sun exposure triggers melanin production to protect the skin, leading to gradual buildup over time and the formation of darker patches. This process is typically experienced by older adults and is associated with aging.Hypopigmentation may indicate underlying health conditions, so medical advice is recommended for proper evaluation.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide treatments to address hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone. Our treatments include:

    Chemical Peel: This treatment reduces the appearance of dark spots and improves overall complexion by promoting skin cell turnover.

    Microdermabrasion: A non-invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and reducing pigmentation, resulting in a clearer and more even skin tone.

    Hydrafacial: This treatment provides deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration, helping to reduce pigmentation and enhance skin clarity.

    Following treatment, you can expect a more youthful, refreshed complexion with improved evenness in tone.


    What is Oily Skin?

    Oily skin occurs when the skin's surface feels greasy to the touch or appears shiny. While everyone produces oil in their skin, excessive oiliness can lead to concerns like congested pores, spots, and acne breakouts.Oily skin can affect various parts of the face but is commonly associated with combination skin, where oily patches occur around the nose, forehead, and chin, alongside dry cheeks.

    What are the causes?

    Sebum, the skin's natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands, moisturizes the skin effectively when secreted at appropriate levels. However, excessive sebum production leads to oily skin. Dry skin texture can trigger the sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum. Factors such as sun exposure and environmental conditions can also decrease skin hydration, prompting increased oil production.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer solutions to manage and balance oily skin. Our treatments include:

    Microneedling + PRP: This treatment stimulates collagen production and promotes skin renewal, helping to balance oil production and improve skin texture.

    Hydrafacial: A deep cleansing and exfoliating treatment that removes excess oil and impurities, leaving the skin refreshed and less oily.

    Chemical Peel: This treatment helps regulate oil production, reduces the occurrence of breakouts, and promotes a clearer, healthier complexion.

    Additionally, our tailored skincare regimens, including medical-grade products, can maintain oil balance and improve overall skin health.


    What is sagging neck/lines?

    Sagging neck/lines refer to the loosening and wrinkling of the skin on the neck, often accompanied by the formation of horizontal lines. This can create an aged appearance and detract from the overall aesthetic of the neck and jawline.

    What are the causes?

    The primary causes of a sagging neck and lines include aging, where the skin loses its natural elasticity and collagen production decreases. Sun exposure, smoking, and poor skincare routines can exacerbate this condition. Additionally, weight fluctuations and genetic factors can contribute to the weakening and sagging of the neck skin.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer a range of treatments to address sagging neck and lines. Our treatments include:

    Artisan Neck Lift: A specialised treatment designed to tighten and rejuvenate the neck area, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance.

    Skin Boosters: These treatments enhance skin hydration and elasticity, reducing the appearance of lines and sagging.

    Exosomes + Microneedling: This combination treatment stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and firmness for a more lifted and rejuvenated neck.

    A comprehensive consultation will determine the most suitable approach for achieving a smoother and more youthful neck.


    What are Smile Lines?

    Smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These lines become more pronounced with age and can give the face a tired or aged appearance.

    What are the causes?

    Smile lines are primarily caused by the natural aging process, where the skin loses collagen and elasticity, leading to the formation of wrinkles. Repeated facial expressions, such as smiling and laughing, can deepen these lines over time. Factors like sun exposure, smoking, and genetic predisposition can also contribute to the development of smile lines.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer effective treatments to reduce the appearance of smile lines. Our treatments include:

    Sad Smile No More: A comprehensive package designed to smooth out wrinkles and restore facial volume, reducing the appearance of smile lines.

    Contour and Correct: This treatment uses dermal fillers to fill in the lines and restore a youthful contour to the face.

    Microneedling + Exosomes: This advanced treatment enhances skin texture and stimulates collagen production, providing a refreshed and youthful look.


    What is a Textured Skin?

    Textured skin refers to an uneven skin surface, which can be rough, bumpy, or pitted. This condition can affect the overall smoothness and appearance of the skin, making it look dull and uneven.

    What are the causes?

    Textured skin can result from a variety of factors, including acne scars, enlarged pores, and sun damage. Aging also contributes to skin texture changes as collagen and elastin production decreases. Improper skincare routines and environmental factors can further exacerbate the texture of the skin.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide treatments to improve skin texture and smoothness. Our treatments include:

    Morpheus8: A radiofrequency microneedling procedure that effectively addresses textured skin by stimulating collagen production, reducing roughness, and improving skin tone.

    Microneedling: This treatment helps in reducing roughness and improving overall skin texture by promoting skin renewal and collagen production.

    The Perfect Derma Peel: A comprehensive solution that rejuvenates the skin, enhances its overall texture, and provides a smoother, more even complexion.


    What are Thin Lips?

    Thin lips refer to lips with minimal visible pink or reddish tissue. Lip appearance varies among individuals, with fuller lips often considered more desirable for both men and women of all ages.

    What are the causes?

    Genetics largely determine lip appearance, with some individuals naturally possessing thinner lips. Aging can also contribute to thinner lips, as collagen and elastin levels decline over time. This reduction in tissue density weakens the lip structure, leading to a less voluminous appearance. Additionally, thin lips associated with aging may exhibit visible lines and wrinkles.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide treatments to enhance the fullness and shape of thin lips. Our treatments include:

    Sealed with a Kiss: This treatment uses dermal fillers to add volume and definition, creating a natural and more youthful appearance.

    Lip Flip: A procedure that uses Botox to relax the muscles around the lips, causing them to flip outward slightly and create a fuller look without adding volume.

    Our experts ensure a balanced and harmonious enhancement, tailored to individual preferences.


    What is Uneven Skin?

    Uneven skin refers to the irregularities in skin tone and texture, often characterized by discoloration, patches, and an inconsistent surface. This can result in a lack of radiance and a less uniform complexion.

    What are the causes?

    Uneven skin can be caused by sun exposure, hormonal changes, acne, and inflammation. Aging also plays a role as the skin's renewal process slows down, leading to a buildup of dead skin cells. Environmental factors and improper skincare routines can contribute to the appearance of uneven skin.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer solutions to even out the skin tone and texture. Our treatments include:

    Microneedling: This treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production, promoting a smoother skin surface and reducing the appearance of discolouration.

    Hydrafacial: A deep cleansing and hydrating treatment that improves skin tone and texture, leaving the skin more radiant and uniform.

    Microdermabrasion: An exfoliating procedure that removes dead skin cells, reduces discolouration, and achieves a more even complexion.


    What are tired eyes, dark circles, and eye bags?

    Tired eyes appear weary and heavy, often with dark circles and eye bags. Dark circles manifest as darkened skin or shadowing under the eyes, while eye bags show as puffiness or swelling beneath the lower lids. This condition typically develops with age and affects both men and women.

    What are the causes?

    Aging affects the eyes as the skin loses volume and becomes thinner. The delicate skin around the eyes is often the first to show aging. As it weakens and sags, it creates pockets for fatty deposits and fluid, leading to eye bags and a darkened appearance. Dark circles can also result from the thin skin making blood vessels more noticeable. For some ethnicities, genetics can cause naturally darker skin under the eyes.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer treatments to reduce the appearance of undereye circles and rejuvenate the eye area. Our treatments include:

    Contour and Correct: Tear trough fillers that restore volume and minimize dark shadows, providing a more refreshed and youthful look.

    Microneedling: This treatment stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin quality and brightness around the eyes.

    Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): A regenerative treatment that uses your body's own platelets to improve skin texture, reduce dark circles, and promote a healthier, more radiant appearance.


    What is a Weak Core?

    A weak core refers to the lack of strength and stability in the muscles of the abdomen and lower back. This can affect posture, balance, and overall physical performance, often leading to discomfort or pain in the lower back.

    What are the causes?

    A weak core can result from a sedentary lifestyle, where lack of exercise leads to muscle atrophy. Poor posture, prolonged sitting, and improper workout techniques can further weaken the core muscles. Additionally, injury or surgery can contribute to core muscle weakness.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide advanced treatments to strengthen the core muscles. Our treatments include:

    Emsculpt NEO: A revolutionary procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate muscle contractions, building strength and tone in the core muscles.

    Emsella: This treatment complements Emsculpt NEO by enhancing core stability and improving overall muscle function through focused electromagnetic energy.

    A personalised consultation will help determine the best approach to achieve a stronger and more resilient core.


    What is a Weak Pelvic Floor?

    A weak pelvic floor refers to the weakening of the muscles that support the pelvic organs, including the bladder, bowel, and uterus. This can lead to issues such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and reduced sexual function.

    What are the causes?

    A weak pelvic floor can be caused by pregnancy and childbirth, which stretch and strain the pelvic muscles. Aging, menopause, and hormonal changes can also contribute to muscle weakening. Other factors include obesity, chronic coughing, and heavy lifting, which can put additional pressure on the pelvic floor.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we offer effective treatments to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Our treatments include:

    Emsella: A non-invasive procedure that uses electromagnetic technology to induce muscle contractions, enhancing muscle tone and function in the pelvic floor.

    Emsculpt NEO: This treatment provides overall core strength, supporting the pelvic floor by building muscle and improving tone through high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology.

    A tailored treatment plan will be developed to address individual needs and improve pelvic health.


    What are fine lines and wrinkles?

    Fine lines and wrinkles are visible creases that develop on the skin as a person ages. They can affect various areas of the face and neck, including the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, nasolabial folds, lip lines, and marionette lines. Initially, these facial creases may appear as small, fine lines that gradually deepen and become more pronounced over time.

    What are the causes?

    The development of fine lines and wrinkles typically stems from two main factors: a weakened skin structure and facial movements.As part of the aging process, collagen and elastin levels decrease in the skin, leading to reduced volume, elasticity, and support from underlying tissues. Consequently, the skin becomes thinner and less resilient.

    Facial movements, such as frowning and smiling, involve internal muscles that cause the skin to move along with them. Over time, repetitive movements can create grooves in the skin that become more prominent as the skin's structural integrity diminishes with age. Eventually, these creases may become static, contributing to a tired and aged appearance.


    At Artisan Aesthetics, we provide a range of treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Our treatments include:

    Wake Up Pretty: This comprehensive treatment plan targets both dynamic and static wrinkles to restore a youthful appearance.

    Sculptra: An injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production, gradually restoring facial volume and smoothing out deep lines and wrinkles.

    Skin Boosters: These treatments improve skin texture and elasticity by deeply hydrating the skin, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.
