A perfect face cut is like a perfect canvas. Naturally we all have face cuts which perfectly compliment our natural features. What gives us this perfect cut is our jaw line—a tight, firm, sharp jaw line indeed. Yet, as we age, the skin around our jaw line begins to sag and droop down. Even after a forehead or eyebrow lift, our age is quite identifiable by the loose saggy skin hanging down the jowls. The reason behind this sagging and loosening of skin is mainly the skin’s elasticity factor. Our skin loses its elasticity as the production of collagen slows down with age. With the lack of elasticity to hold it there, the gravitational pull makes it droop downwards. One more reason behind early loosening of jowl skin is the constant movement of the jaw line. We all need to eat and we all need to talk. Well, most of us are doing either or both at any given time. This constant movement results in loose jowl skin. Continue reading

Acne scars are among the most common skin conditions affecting people around the world, and by their nature they occur predominately on your face, the area of skin most regularly seen, and the area most likely to provoke a response. The simple truth is that we humans cannot help but make snap judgments about people when we see their physical appearance. We are genetically programmed to look for signs of illness or disability because we do not want to become ill or pass a disability on to our offspring. This means that even the kindest of us has an immediate and subconscious reaction when they see a face with disfiguring marks on it, and that is a reaction that those of us with acne scars have become accustomed to and have to constantly fight to overcome.

Acne most often occurs when sebaceous glands are overactive and generate too much oil which can then plug hair follicles in your skin. There is no absolutely perfect answer as to just why acne scars occur more often in some people than others, but it is well established that a number of factors including genetics, the environment, your lifestyle, and skin healthcare maintenance play a role. If you have had problems with acne in the past or are perhaps suffering from acne currently and would like to clear your skin or even remove facial acne scars, you should know that you have options. Before opting for any particular treatment you need to understand what makes an acne treatment effective so that you can achieve your goal of preventing further acne scar formation.
It has been well established that the most important sources of acne are biological in nature. Appearing first in puberty, the skin cells of the facial hair follicles tend to shed very heavily, and the skin’s natural creation of oils is greatly expanded. The end result of these changes is that the hair follicles become blocked and allow acne to begin appearing on the skin, which can occasionally result in facial acne scars for which treatment may be appropriate. The severity of the acne that occurs seems to be dominantly controlled by genetics, as young people entering puberty whose parents also had severe acne when they were younger have been shown to be much more likely to have a similar facial acne scar problem in comparison with other people. Fortunately cosmetic doctors have made very impressive advances in the treatment of acne scars and can almost always provide services to help reduce many types of acne scars and may provide facial acne scar removal services if they are likely to be effective in a given case.
There are several exacerbating factors that regularly contribute to the formation of acne including some types of medication. However, although, as a result of years of folk wisdom, oily skin and a fatty diet are popularly believed to be the dominant sources of acne the fact is that evidence suggests there is almost no reality to this popularly held belief. Oily skin in and of itself is best considered a symptom of the deeper real sources of acne than as a cause itself, and what is worse, heavy efforts to get rid of oil in the skin as with strong abrasives may actually damage your skin and cause worse acne which can then cause worse facial acne scars.
Fortunately, acne is usually a passing condition and can be expected to improve as we grow older, unfortunately, severe acne can and will leave facial acne scars. In these cases your only hope is a cosmetic doctor who can provide a variety of services aimed at reducing the appearance of acne scars that may include treatments like a laser skin surfacing treatment, dermal filler injections and, less often these days, a chemical peel that has been shown to be effective at reducing acne scars.
Scarring can result from any number of sources. Injuries are the most common source of scarring and there are very few people who manage to escape childhood without a scar somewhere. Very often children trip and fall, and scars on the chin are one of the most common reasons that people seek treatment for scars on skin. Continue reading
