We are incredibly excited to share this wonderful success from our latest melasma treatment. "What is melasma?" I hear you ask.

We usually associate skin treatments with ladies. Thanks to mainstream media and the way of our society, we often don’t think of men as needing or wanting to look after their skin. But some of my best clients have been men who are in some way debilitated by rosacea, acne, blackheads and even excess hair that want to feel more confident within themselves. Did you know that men can really benefit from regular facials as well? Here are some reasons why...

Happy New Year to one and all! Now that everyone has finished devouring all the turkey they can eat I thought I would mention New Year’s resolutions. So many of us decide to work out more, eat healthier, quit some vice or another. All of these are excellent things.

Melasma comes from the Greek word ‘Melas’ meaning ‘black’. This is actually a very common skin complaint in pregnant women, but can affect anyone, male or female. Essentially it is a skin pigmentation condition where portions of the skin become darker or tanned-looking in patches. It isn’t infectious and nor does it cause or develop into any kind of skin cancer, but it really can affect the sufferer’s confidence and appearance despite it otherwise being a very benign skin condition, meaning...
