Skin Conditions


It is the most common skin disease treated by physicians. Acne can appear at any age, although there are peaks of incidence in adolescence and again for females near the time of menopause.  The acne skin disease is commonly characterised by spots that are referred to as “pimples” or “zits”. The spots can range from comedones (blackheads & whiteheads),which are often mild, to inflamed pus filled lesions such as papules or pustules and nodules (cysts). Inflamed acne is more severe and can lead to scarring. The most common type of acne is known as acne vulgaris. Although acne is not dangerous it does have far reaching social and psychological effects.

Before I can determine the right treatment plan for your acne, there are a number of different factors that need to be taken into account. If you feel that your acne is more moderate to severe, then we would always advise it is best to seek professional help from you GP in order to get your acne under control.

Rosacea is sometimes referred to as ‘Acne Rosacea’, it is a common skin ailment that is characterised by facial flushing (which can be highly embarrassing for many of us), skin hyper-sensitivity, persistent redness, broken capillaries, papules and pustules.

Unfortunately, the cause of Rosacea is largely unknown, but a genetic predisposition is often at the root of development. Exposure to the sun, on sensitive skin types, is thought to be the number one stimulator of the condition and it is often the case that sufferers have had a lifestyle with higher than average sun exposure.

   My advice to all rosacea sufferers is that it is always best to seek professional help as soon as possible in order to get your rosacea under control and prevent advancement of the condition, so make sure you see a specialist.

Abnormalities in pigmentation are common and frequently produce considerable stress in the patient since they affect appearance.

The sun, genetics, medication and skin ageing are the main factors that influence skin pigmentation. These factors can cause melanin to distribute unevenly in the skin and accumulate at the surface of the epidermis, causing an uneven, blotchy, ’freckle like’ appearance. Unsightly dark spots or a diffused pigmentation form on the surface of the skin, most commonly on face, neck, décolletage and the back of the hands.

If you suffer with pigmentation and are keen to get it under control, a Bespoke facial, Chemical peel or Micro-needling  could be the perfect treatment for you. This facial is a customisable brightening treatment designed to help improve photo damaged skin, melasma – the ‘mask of pregnancy’ and post inflammatory pigmentation caused by acne lesions.

Skin Ageing

We are all destined to experience skin ageing. Skin ageing is a degenerative process caused by intrinsic (chronological) and extrinsic (environmental) ageing.  These factors are something most of us can relate to, and contribute to the visible signs of skin ageing:
  • A loss of skin firmness and elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage and pigmentation
  • Irregular pigmentation and texture
  • Large pores
  • Dry skin
  • Loss of facial volume
'Skin by Lisa' has a number of proven techniques effective in helping reverse the signs of ageing. Having regular anti-ageing facials such as Radio-frequency with a course of Advanced Chemical  Peels will help to reverse the effects of ageing in the skin. The recommended treatment and skin care programme for your skin concerns will be decided after a thorough skin analysis and consultation

Acne Scarring

The term ‘scarring’ refers to a fibrous process where new collagen is produced to help heal an injury within the skin. In general, superficial spots will heal without scarring but when the deeper layers of the skin are involved, there is a higher chance of scar development. Inflammation is the single biggest gauge when it comes to scar development. The more inflammation present, the more likely we are to experience scarring. 

At 'Skin by Lisa' we recommend a couple of proven techniques that are effective at helping to dramatically improve acne scarring.  After your initial consultation, a decision will be made between WOW Fusion micro-needling, Medical Micro-needling or an Advanced Chemical Skin Peel  to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen growth. Best results are achieved through a course of treatments using one, or a combination of these techniques as well as a targeted skincare regime, which will be bespoke to your individual needs.  The fusion of these cutting edge methods and skincare helps encourage skin renewal to help correct the appearance of acne scarring as well as improve the texture and health of the skin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is also called xerosis. The complex factors contributing to dry, flaky skin are just beginning to be understood. Some of these relate to the environment and some relate to the particular individual involved. There are individual and genetic factors, which make some persons more susceptible than others to this problem.

  Doctors have very inconsistent prescribing practices in treating dry skin. Patients often receive conflicting and confusing advice, which causes difficulty in following a therapeutic regimen.

At 'Skin by Lisa'  we have a number of proven techniques effective in helping dry skin.  Having regular  Bespoke facials will help to relieve symptom's  of dry skin. The recommended treatment and skin care programme for your skin concerns will be decided after a thorough skin analysis and consultation.
