Acne and Scarring

Acne is a common skin disorder that is caused by hormone action on the sebaceous glands (oil secreting glands) of the skin. Hormones act on the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles leading to clogged pores and lesions which we commonly call pimples. These usually form on your face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. When it is moderate to severe, it can result in permanent scars and lead to low self esteem.

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition of excessive sweating in certain parts of the body. Excessive sweating without any underlying medical condition is called primary hyperhidrosis. If the cause of excessive sweating is due to a medical condition, this is referred to as secondary hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands where increased release of a chemical (acetylcholine) from the central nervous system directs the sweat glands to produce excessive perspiration. Hyperhidrosis may significantly affect the social and psychological wellbeing of an individual. Axillary hyperhidrosis refers to severe sweating under the arms. It also commonly affects the palms and soles and less often elsewhere on the body and face. It may cause physical discomfort, social embarrassment, affect occupational and daily activities, and at times may also cause social isolation.
