Literally and Figuratively

Skin Deep

Only, or more than that?

Rosacea & Eczema

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes frequent flushing and visible blood vessels. Eczema is characterized by dry, itchy, and scaly patches. 

Birthmarks & Tattoos

An overgrowth of blood vessels produces vascular birthmarks (patch of red, pink, or purple skin); an overgrowth of pigment cells produces cafe-au-lait.

Stretch Marks

Ranging from fine lines to thick waves, stretch marks are often caused by extreme weight fluctuation, rapid muscle building and pregnancy.

Hypertrophic & Keloid Scars

Hypertrophic scar is restricted to the area within the original wound, but a keloid scar keeps growing even after the wound has healed.

Varicose & Spider Veins

Aesthetic problem aside, they might cause discomfort that disturb daily activities, such as itching, aching, swelling, throbbing, heaviness, fatigue and night cramps.
