Can Sunscreen Prevent Cancer?

*  Stars

Skin Cancer And The Dangers Cancer, in its simplest form, is an abnormal growth of cells within our body is that is beyond our control. Therefore, with skin cancer, this growth occurs within our skin cells and is most commonly caused by UV radiation from sunlight and sun beds that damages the DNA in our skin cells beyond repair. This damage then initiates mutations and genetic defects, and the formation of malignant lesions begin to occur due to rapid multiplication of skin cells. Sunscreens, Creams And Lotions As the UV rays in sunlight are one of the main causes of skin cancer, the importance of skin protection is higher than ever. When possible, it is wise to cover up as much of your skin as you can when exposed to sunlight for prolonged amounts of time. Obviously this isn't always ideal in warmer weather conditions, which is when you need [...]

Half Way Through Summer In the UK, we have enjoyed a couple of summer months now; with longer days, shorter nights and warmer weather (when we are lucky). As the sun comes out and the heat bares down, our skin is covered less as we battle to stay cool. With more of ourselves on show, we can become self-conscious and more aware of our outward appearance, making it a daily struggle to maintain our bodies and keep them tidy, especially our unwanted body hair. Hair Removal At Home There are many products on the high street that many of us turn to when it comes to the removal of our unsightly body hair, such as hair removal creams, home waxing kits and razors, all of which can be extremely tiresome.

Is Summer A Good Time To Get Breast Implants?

*  Stars

The Best Time to Get Breast Implants To put it simply, you can undergo a breast augmentation procedure at any time of year as this will not have an impact on the quality of the results. What really needs to be considered in depth is the recovery period post-treatment. You need to ensure that you plan your breast enlargement around a period when you are certain you can book enough time off work in order to relax and allow time for your breasts to properly heal. In direct relation to the summer months, sunbathing is not recommended during the healing process and a lot of patients do favour treatment around this period as they are more likely to have free time and can relax guilt-free. In general, there is no exact time that is best to seek breast implants; it only comes down to what works best for you. Breast [...]

Sunscreens, Creams And Lotions – What Is SPF And Does It Matter?

*  Stars

Many of us don't fully understand the significance of the sun protection factor (SPF) in the cosmetics, skin care and sunscreen products that we use every day. The SPF in these items blocks the Ultra Violet B rays (UVB) in sunlight which cause sunburn, damages the skin and can contribute to causes of skin cancer. What Does SPF Mean? The SPF in a variety of products usually comes with a number. For example, the SPF found in most skin care creams and cosmetics is most commonly SPF 15. This means that where you might spend a minute in the sun before you start burning, now you can spend fifteen minutes before skin damage begins. However, if you are outside in bright sunlight you need to reapply sunscreen every two hours to maintain protection, but an SPF 15 in your moisturising cream will adequately protect you for the day if you [...]

Laser Hair Removal Facts

Reasons To Get Laser Hair Removal Current attitudes within our society towards bodily hair aren't that great. It is often seen as unsightly in most places - even more so for women - as we tirelessly strive for smooth, hairless skin. But this can be a constant battle of excessive shaving and waxing that becomes tiring and time-consuming.

The Best Way To Get Rid Of Spider Veins

*  Stars

Who Gets Spider Veins And Why? This is a question we often get asked here at Sthetix Clinic in Liverpool, and it is one that doesn't have just one simple answer. The more professional term for the appearance of spider veins is "venous insufficiency" and is when our veins get bigger due to a backup of blood, which causes them to become varicose veins in more serious cases. But this is not the only thing that can cause spider veins. They can also be caused due to certain injuries, sun exposure and hormone changes. Spider Veins most commonly appear in the elderly due to weakening in vein valves over time, the overweight and obese due to the pressure put on the veins, and those who are pregnant as there is a lot of blood in the body during this time and this causes veins to enlarge.

Thread Veins On Legs

*  Stars

Otherwise known as "Spider Veins" due to their almost cobweb-like appearance, thread veins can occur on any part of the body but are most commonly found in the face and legs. The main reason they appear is due to the smallest of our blood vessels, known as capillaries, rupturing following permanent dilation. This then causes the blood to spread to other capillaries and creates the undesirable appearance of thread veins on the skin. They tend to occur most commonly in the legs because of the pressure from our body weight and the fact that leg veins find it most difficult to carry blood from the bottom of the body back to the heart. Living With Thread Veins For many people, thread veins can have a significant impact on their day to day lives. These unsightly veins can lead to a loss in self-confidence, affecting overall happiness and satisfaction, but there [...]
