Most women in their twenties are normally in very good health with little need to see their GP too often. Frequent requests are the contraceptive pill and treatment for acne. Some women might be planning their wedding, starting their families or settling in to marriage. Life can be very hectic and demanding and although it is usually a time when we look very good, preventing damage to the skin and protecting it, is important. If you want to maintain your natural beauty, this is the time to start.

Showing expression is an important part of our individuality – but for some woman excessive expression may result in the formation of static lines. In these cases, starting treatment with Botox earlier is better and also necessary to keep your features soft. Dermal fillers are mainly used to balance the face where slight correction or beautification is needed. It is normally too early to show any volume loss on our faces and most skins are well hydrated.

Hyperpigmentation can be commonly caused by using the contraceptive pill, pregnancy, too much sun or after inflammation of the skin. Skin care, UV protection and chemical skin peels are all very important in treating and maintaining the uniformity of colour in the skin.

Acne is a chronic inflammation of the sebaceous units of the skin, producing comedones, papules, pustules, cysts and scars. Acne has an equal sex incidence and tends to affect women earlier than men. First line treatment includes Benzoylperoxide, topical skin treatment and/or antibiotics per mouth. Chemical skin peels are very effective in treating the condition and Dermaroller can improve scarring.

Excessive sweating can start to be a problem and cause difficulty in feeling comfortable when socialising or doing sport. This can be easily and safely managed by using Botox.

Being in your twenties is a wonderful time, and looking good is so easy. The art is to keep it that way.
