Facial Aesthetics - Body Contouring - Advanced Skincare
Conditions We Treat
Our medical treatments can help to improve the appearance of or resolve a range of conditions affecting the face, body and skin
Acne (acne vulgaris) is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point in their life, and while more common in teenagers it can affect many adults as well. It causes spots, oily skin (seborrhoea) and can lead to scarring.
Acne can be hereditary and is also known to be caused by hormonal changes, such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle or pregnancy. It can often be associated with conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Acne most often affects the face, but it may spread to involve the neck, chest and back. It can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being, especially if it results in scarring.
Acne and acne scarring treatments offered at Berkshire Aesthetics include chemical skin peels, medical grade skin care, Dermaroller, Dermapen and Plexr® Soft Surgery.
A double chin is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin. A double chin is often associated with weight gain, but you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin resulting from aging may also cause a double chin.
We offer CoolSculpting which is an effective treatment on its own and can be used in combination with Exilis Ultra.
As we age it is normal to develop excess upper eyelid skin. This often results in the development of hooding deformities of the upper eyelids.
While removal of the excess skin via surgery is an option this procedure does come with possible risks and complications.
We offer a "soft surgery" option using the Plexr® Soft Surgery System. This will enable a gradual reduction of the excess skin over a course of treatments allowing a measured approach with less downtime than traditional eye surgery.
Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating. It is a common condition that can affect several different parts of the body, but primarily affects the palms, soles of the feet and the underarms.
It can be an embarrasing conditon which many find difficult to discuss. Hyperhidrosis can have a significant psychological impact and can even be disabiling in professional or social situations.
If you feel you sweat too much and your sweating has started to interfere with your everyday life, you may have hyperhidrosis.
At Berkshire Aesthetics we can effectively treat hyperhidrosis using Botulinum toxin for the management of underarm sweating.
Childbirth and the natural ageing process cause changes which may affect feminine wellness. Childbirth and the effects of menopause can cause physical changes which can rob women of their sense of well-being and happiness.
Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence suffered by women, especially older women. It affects 200 million people worldwide and one in four women over the age of 18 experience episodes of involuntary leakage of urine.
Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines are shallow folds caused by lax, sagging skin and are associated with the earliest signs of ageing or photo-damage.
Wrinkles, on the other hand, are caused by muscle contractions under the skin, which is why they show up where you make the most facial expressions, like squinting, frowning and smiling (dynamic wrinkles). Wrinkles or rhytids can also be static which are still evident when the face is relaxed.
We have a range of treatments for both fine lines and wrinkles, which include the use of medical grade skincare products, chemical peels, anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, PRP and soft surgery using Plexr® which is ideal for stubborn lines.
Also known as benign melanocytic naevi, moles can be present at birth (dermal), although most develop during childhood or early adult life (acquired). People with fair skin often have more moles than people with darker skin.
You are more likely to develop lots of moles, or a certain type of mole, if they are common in your family or if you have spent a lot of time in the sun.
Most moles are completely harmless. However, they may be unsightly and affect your confidence. Moles can also be a nuisance, for example, if they regularly catch on your clothing or you cut them while shaving.
It is important to remember that a mole must be assessed medically before it is removed as patients with greater numbers of moles have an increased risk of skin cancer.
Skin pigmentation disorders cause uneven skin tone, where areas or patches of skin can turn darker in colour (hyperpigmentation). Hyperpigmentation often develops when there is an excess of melanin, the natural brown pigment found in the skin.
There are several different conditions that can cause hyperpigmentation, some of which include:
Treatments we offer for hyperpigmentation include medical grade skincare regimes, chemical peels and PRP.
Rosacea is a common chronic red rash, usually occurring on the central face, which predominantly affects those aged 30 to 60. It is commonly seen in people with pale completion.
Skin damage due to chronic exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation plays a part. It is aggravated by anything that predisposes to flushing, eg. sunlight, caffeine, alcohol and spicy food.
We offer a wide range of medical grade skincare products for persistent rosacea.
Scars & Marks
Scars can take many forms including:
Skin laxity is the result of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Natural ageing, genetics, diet, stress, lifestyle, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, exposure to environmental toxins, and smoking may all contribute, resulting in loss of collagen and elastin in our skin. The breakdown of these skin-binding fibres causes laxity and it increases over years. Gravity also plays a large part in pulling the looser skin downwards and it starts to do so as early as our 30’s.
Benign skin lesions such as verrucas, viral warts, skin tags (acrochordons),xanthelasmas and seborrhoeic keratoses are harmless, however you might not like the way they look.
Warts in particular often do not respond to traditional methods of treatment such as topical skin preparations and cryotherapy.
The Plexr® Soft Surgery system offers a successful and reliable method of treatment for skin lesions without having to resort to the use of a scalpel, reducing downtime and eliminating the risk of bleeding.
As we age stubborn areas of fat can form which resist diet and exercise. While liposuction is an option we believe CoolSculpting is the only viable alternative to surgery.
With FDA clearance and over 100 clinical studies showing its effectiveness and eliminating fat it is not only safe but highly effective.
The cumulative effects of sun exposure puts us at higher risk of sensitive or dry skin, wrinkling, age spots (solar lentigines), uneven skin tone, freckles, actinic keratoses and deeper cellular skin damage that can lead to skin cancer.
We recommend a medical grade sunscreen is used all year round to guard against sun damage. While high street brands protect against UVA and UVB.
Thread & Spider Veins
Thread veins, also called spider veins, are tiny prominent veins just below the skin surface. They tend to branch and give a spidery sort of pattern hence their common name. Spider veins can occur anywhere on the body but most often on the legs and face.
Most often a cosmetic problem, thread veins on the legs can cause symptoms like burning, pain and itching.
We use the Vein Away system, by Physioskin, to treat thread and spider veins.
Over time as we age we begin to lose volume within the fat compartments of our face that are associated with youth. A multitude of factors can cause changes to these fatty compartments but it is a natural part of the ageing process, along with changes to the underlying bone structure.
These changes to our appearance contribute to the formation of wrinkles and sagging of the skin. Other causes of volume loss can include extreme dieting, hormonal changes and excessive sun exposure.
Dermal fillers are effective at replacing lost volume in the face. They have a multitude of uses and can help to maintain the structure of our faces as we age. PRP is also a good treatment option.
