Skin Damage

There are many factors that result in damage to the skin. This is something that often has a negative impact on the psychological wellbeing of a person, as they struggle with the visible effects of skin damage. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the most common forms of damage to the skin and see what you can do to improve them.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are particularly common in women, but often affect men. They are caused when the skin suddenly stretches, due to weight gain or growth spurts during puberty and pregnancy. They can also be caused by other conditions or through the overuse of strong steroid creams and ointments. Although they start off as unsightly red or purple marks, they tend to fade to white or silvery lines.

There are many creams and oils that claim to treat and reduce stretch marks, but there are very few that have been shown to make a difference.


It is unlikely that you will have made it through to your adult life without at least one scar that tells a story! They can be caused by many things, such as accidental injury, surgery or burning. Although most scars heal over time, and may fade until they are practically invisible, there are some scars that can be noticeable and embarrassing.

If you receive a burn or cut that is likely to turn into a scar, it’s wise to make sure you treat it now to reduce the scar before it has developed. Don’t pick at scabs that have already formed, and protect the wound from outside factors.

Sun Damage

We all know that too much exposure to the sun’s rays can cause damage to your skin. Sun burn can lead to painful blisters and redness which should fade within a few days. However, there are lasting effects of sun damage, and you can permanently harm your skin through repeated exposure.

All of the above forms of skin damage can be treated with our Dermaroller treatment, which stimulates the skin to regenerate and restore itself in a natural way. This is just one of many treatments on offer here at Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics, so if you’re looking for Dermaroller treatment, skin peels or wrinkle treatment in Birmingham, contact us today by calling 07815904578 to speak to a member of our team.
