Some of the skin conditions Microskin works wonders on are:

Vitiligo

Vitiligo is an acquired destruction of melanocytes resulting in white patches on the skin. Vitiligo may occur at any age, though about 50% present before the age of 20.

Epidermal Naevus

Epidermal naevus usually present at birth or arises within the first decade and may increase in size at puberty. It is well-defined brown or yellow raised plaque with a rough warty surface and fissuring.

Burns to the Skin

Tissue damage from excessive heat, electricity, radioactivity, or corrosive chemicals that destroy proteins in the exposed cells is called a burn

Becker’s Naevus

Becker’s Naevus is more common in males and most commonly on the chest, shoulder and upper arms. It is initially flat but may become raised and pigmented and subsequently develop thick coarse hairs.

Port Wine Birthmark

The lesion is present at birth and permanent. It is usually purple and is a permanent stain that varies in size.

Connective Tissue Naevus

Connective tissue naevus are lesions of dermal elastic fibres and collagen which give rise to nodules and plaque, especially on the upper back.

Café au Lait

Café au Lait is a single rounded, small or large round or oval pale brown patch. It may be present at birth in up to 10% of the population.

HyperPigmentation

Occurs when an excessive amount of melanin has been deposited in a clump causing a brown lesion on the skin.

Keloid Scarring

The keloids are red, raised and firm and have a smooth shiny surface. The often tender nodules can complicate minor acne.

Spider Naevi

Spider Naevi looks like a spider with radiating legs extending out from a central red body. Found on upper cheeks, nose, and eye areas.

Rosacea

Rosacea is characterised by papules and pustules that occur on the face, often associated with flushing. Rosacea is common in both sexes and can appear at any time.

Necrobiosis Lipoidica Diabeticorum
