What is a Birthmark?

A birthmark is a physical mark on the skin that is present at birth or appears shortly afterward. They can vary in size, shape, and color, and may or may not have medical significance.

Causes of Birthmarks

  • Genetic factors
  • Problems with blood vessels during fetal development

  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy
  • Exposure to certain medications or chemicals during pregnancy


  • Observation
  • Laser therapy
  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Camouflage makeup


The number of sessions required for birthmark treatment can vary depending on the type and size of the birthmark, as well as the chosen treatment method.Laser therapy, for example, typically requires multiple sessions spread out over several months for best results.On the other hand, surgical removal may be a one-time procedure, although additional sessions may be needed if the birthmark is particularly large or complex.


  1. Improved appearance and self-confidence
  2. Reduced risk of skin cancer (in some cases)
  3. Improved function (in cases where the birthmark is affecting vision, hearing, or movement)
  4. Reduced risk of infection or other complications (in cases where the birthmark is causing skin breakdown or ulceration)
  5. Relief from pain or discomfort (in cases where the birthmark is causing physical discomfort)


It’s important to speak with a dermatologist or other healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment. With the right treatment approach, individuals with birthmarks can feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Acne can be caused by a number of factors. Acne can be hereditary, it can be hormonal, and it can be caused by a testosterone increase during puberty. It is also possible for acne to be caused by certain medications, some makeup products, and even wearing items of clothing or accessories that place pressure on a specific area of the skin – wearing a headband for instance.

Smoking is also said to cause acne in older people. Whatever the underlying reasons as to why you have acne, it all results in one thing – hair follicles becoming blocked by sebum from surrounding sebaceous glands, and dead skin cells. These plugged hair follicles can either turn into whiteheads or blackheads, and if the (usually) harmless bacteria that lives on our skin then infects the follicles, you can even experience cysts, papules, nodules or pustules. None of which are any fun for the person having to deal with them.

Our skincare experts take time to get to know and understand your acne concerns and issues, and only then will they make an informed decision as to which acne treatment is the best for you. That could be:

You do not need to stop wearing makeup if you have acne. However, you should wear makeup that is non-comedogenic. This means that it doesn’t block the pores.

Not necessarily. As mentioned above, acne can be caused by a number of triggers, and however much you clean your face it’s not going to affect how crazy your hormones are being. Sometimes, cleaning your face too much can even contribute to acne as it can aggravate spots.

Furthermore, using alcohol-based cleansers can dry your skin out and this isn’t a good thing as far as acne is concerned. Despite what you may think, and even if you feel like you have excessively oily skin, it’s still important to use a moisturiser – just make sure you opt for a non-comedogenic one.

Everyone is different, but acne – more often than not – does eventually go away. For many, it’s puberty that can kick things off and acne often settles down when puberty does. However, acne can sometimes persist into your adult years. That said, our skincare specialists have worked with many clients who wanted their acne to disappear and felt like they had tried everything. As you will see from our success stories and testimonials, we have had hugely positive and effective results.
