Knowing Your Skin Problems

Knowing Your Skin Problems

You should know your skin problems as much as you know your skin.

All encounter different skin problems every now and then and sometimes, it can be quite difficult to deal with them.

In order to take care of our skin the best way possible, it is first important to know some of the most common skin problems that we encounter in-depth.

Here are six common skin problems that people encounter:

1. Dark Circles – As you age, the skin naturally becomes thinner and collagen is likewise lost. This causes the enhancement of blood vessels beneath the eyes, resulting to darkening of the area.

Dark circles under the eye can just be hereditary and caused by bad genetics. However, other things and factors can also contribute to having dark circles and they include excessive scratching and rubbing of the eyes and medications causing dilation of blood vessels.

2. Acne – This is one of the most common problems that your skin encounters every now and then. Acne is a chronic and an inflammatory skin condition that causes pimples and various spots, particularly on the face, chest, neck, back, upper arms and shoulders. Pimples, nodules, cysts, blackheads, and whiteheads are all different kinds of acne.

3. Acne Scars – These are the unwanted marks and leftovers of acne. They are permanently textural changes that occur in our skin as a negative result of severe acne.

4. Dry Skin – It is a condition marked by cracking, itching and scaling of the skin. It occurs when your skin doesn’t meet the sufficient moisture it needs. Its most noticeable symptoms are cracked or flaky skin as well as itching and redding.

5. Blackheads – This is a mild kind of acne that appear as small bumps in your skin due to the clogging of hair follicles. For obvious reasons, the bumps and spots are called blackheads since the affected surface looks dark or black.

Blackheads usually form on the face, most commonly in the nose, but can likewise appear on the back.

6. Wrinkles – A wrinkle is a crease or ridge that can be seen on the skin. Skin wrinkles appear typically as a common result of aging, being a natural part of the process. As you get older, your skin eventually gets thinner and drier, losing its elasticity. This leads to wrinkles, lines, and creases on the skin.

For every skin problem, there is a corresponding derma treatment. It is important to both consult a dermatologist to know the best course of action and also seek necessary treatments to avoid further damage.

Shinagawa Aesthetics has a wide array of solutions to take care of all those skin problems.

Never Say Never: Juuya Reyes Achieves Clear Vision

Never Say Never: Juuya Reyes Achieves Clear Vision

Never say never. Indeed.

Juuya Reyes once thought that she might not be able to see clearly again. She’s wrong and she’s happy she is.

Sometimes, it’s better to be wrong and for this case, Shinagawa proved her that she can absolutely see clearly again.

Now, she’s beyond amazed that she enjoys a perfect vision that she once thought was not possible.

She breaks down every step of her LASIK journey to help other hopefuls as well:

“I never thought I’d be able to see clearly again.

My experience with Shinagawa was beyond fantastic. I came in at 9 a.m. to the clinic on a Saturday to have my screening. There was quite a queue since it’s a weekend but around 11 a.m., I was able to complete the tests.

During the test, they did the following:

  1. Eye checks in a well-lit room.
  2. Eyes checks in a dark room.
  3. Eye checks after dilating your pupils with drops (I have to wait for 1 hour for the drops to fully take effect before they do this).

After they announced to me that I am eligible for LASIK, I was scheduled to have my procedure done that afternoon. Why not immediately, you ask? Because they have to wait for my pupils to go back to normal size. I was asked to come back at 4:45 p.m. So we went to the mall to eat and stroll for a while.

We came back a bit early at around 3:45 p.m. and I was already asked to line-up in the pre-operation area. We waited for a few hours there while the team prepared the machines. I did not mind the time at all. This procedure is for your vision, after all. I’d rather have the doctors making sure that everything is perfect for the procedure.

By 6 p.m., I’m done! I can already tell the difference in my vision even if my eyes were still a bit hazy. I took the painkiller pills and rested, administered the eye drops as prescribed. The next day, my vision is crystal clear! The follow-up checkup told me I now have 20/10 vision! It was extraordinary!

Thank you so much to Kyle and Dr. Dela Cruz for the fantastic experience with Shinagawa. I am loving my clear vision!

Some tips for new patients:

  1. If you want to have your screening and procedure done on the same day, come early. While it is not guaranteed that you’ll be able to have your procedure done on the same day due to different factors (e.g. prior surgery schedules, type of procedure you’re going to avail), you’ll be able to have the screening done by before lunch. If you really want it done on the same day, just ask the staff nicely. They are very courteous and helpful!
  2. Bring something to occupy your time. Yes, there will be waiting. But if you have something to do, time passes by really quickly. I bought a book to read while waiting in the clinic and I honestly didn’t notice the hours pass.
  3. Be patient. Everyone in Shinagawa is working hard to provide you with the best experience, so please be nice and polite to the staff. Everyone hates waiting, but they are working on correcting a very sensitive part of our body. So instead of getting impatient and mad about the waiting time, think of it as them making sure that everything will go smoothly during your procedure. What is a couple of hours wait for a lifetime of clear vision?”
