How do you treat Keloid Scars?

Keloid scars are defined as abnormal scars that grow beyond the boundary of the original site of a skin injury. The scar is a raised and ill-defined growth of skin in the area of damaged skin.

Who and What Is at Risk?

Although a keloid scar can form on anyone, some ethnic groups are at a greater risk of developing them. African Americans and Hispanics are 16 percent more susceptible, for example, and keloid scars are seen 15 times more frequently in highly-pigmented ethnic groups than in Caucasians.

Some areas of the body do seem more susceptible to keloid scars, including the deltoid region of the upper arm, the upper back, and the sternum. The earlobes and the back of the neck are also common sites.

Acne Scars Treatment

Once the days of acne are over, sufferers look forward to waking up to peachy-perfect skin, however this isn’t always the reality they’re hit with. Acne can often leave its mark in the form of a scar.

Identifying Acne Scars

Ice Pick Scars

Ice pick scars are characteristically thin/narrow and deep. Because of their depth, they’re perhaps the most difficult to treat and to disguise. Ice pick scars tend to be a result of severe, inflamed, cystic acne.

Ice pick scars, along with rolling and boxcar scars, fall under the ‘atrophic’ scar category which means they’re sunken in the skin, as opposed to being a raised scar (hypertrophic).

what causes of Acne

What Causes Acne?

Having oily or unwashed skin is what causes acne, right? This seems like a universal beauty truth. It’s definitely the culprit in a lot of cases, but it’s also a gross over-simplification in many others.

While some are dermatologically predisposed to pimples, including those with oilier skin or a slower cell turnover, the fact is many breakouts result from internal factors—especially hormones.

How to look after your skin in summer?

Would you like to know how to look after your skin in summer?

Exposure to the sun can lead to premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, marks, dry skin, and even skin cancer over time.

It is imperative that you take the right precautions & skincare routine in order to not only maintain a radiant glow, but also to reverse sun damage.

You can avoid sun damage by: 

Wear Maximum protection, sun block cream throughout the year, with more regular applications in the summer. e.g. Sun Blockex® SPF50 by Pharmaclinix®

Stay out of the sun between the hours of 10am and 3pm. The hottest part of the day during the summer causes the most damage.

Avoid tanning beds. These are also linked to cancer. Its safer to use Self- tanning lotions.

Have a minimum of 7 hours sleep. Lack of sleep can lead to increased levels of stress hormones, which may slow the production of collagen in the skin, leading to premature ageing.

Using a toner

A skin toner will keep the pores closed and keep the skin cool. You can try rose water as its natural cooling properties are excellent for summer.

Use face wash

Clean your face at least twice a day to get rid of the grime. Lightenex® Face Wash by Pharmaclinix® is excellent, as it also whitens the darkened patches.

Exfoliate your skin

You should exfoliate your skin at least twice a week to remove dead cells which may be clogging your pores and also improving blood circulation to the face. 

Moisturize your skin

Use a rich moisturizer containing Anti-oxidants & Aloe Vera to hydrate & soothe sun burnt skin.

Drink lots of water. This not only hydrates the skin, but also flushes away the toxins, which can damage all organs, especially the kidneys.


Rinse skin after swimming.

The chlorine can dry out your skin or even result in an allergic reaction.

Avoid spraying Perfume on your skin in the sun.

This can permanently stain your skin when they react with the sun.

Excessive heat is known to put the body under enormous strain causing irritability, lack of concentration, exhaustion and sleeping problem along with a number of other factors.

By following these simple steps, you will not be able to protect against sun damage, but may even be able to reverse the damage.

How to remove dark circles?

Eyes, your biggest asset. I have often been asked about how to remove dark circles under eyes and about the best under eye creams.

Dark circles under the eyes is a common condition and occurs due to:

  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure as the body responds by making more melanin
  • Ageing causes thinning skin or the loss of fat and collagen, which makes the blood vessels underneath the eyes more noticeable.

The area underneath the eyes is thin and often appears darker with extra fluid retention.

  • Blue under eye dark circles in colour are caused by oxygenated blood pooling beneath the under-eye skin.
  • Brown under eye dark circles are caused by hyperpigmentation, which is caused by chronic eye-rubbing, sun exposure or genetics.

This is particularly common in Asian & African skin.

These dark circles are often treated using topical creams that contain stimulating ingredients that constrict blood vessels while temporarily increasing blood circulation.

The best Eye cream for Asian & African skin is Eyerix® by Pharmaclinix®.

Eyerix® is the only cream that not only reduces the bags under the eyes, but also has strong skin whiteners to help treat the hyperpigmentation or dark patches under the eye.

Eyerix is formulated specifically to lighten the skin around your eyes and helps to reduce dark circles permanently.

  • Encourages production of Collagen (a skin protein) and Elastin, thereby improving the skin smoothness and elasticity, and slowing down the wrinkling process.
  • Suppresses inflammatory enzymes, therefore decreasing puffiness, swelling and signs of fatigue.
  • Strengthens capillaries, arteries and veins, thus reducing leakage and the blue colour underneath.
  • Promotes new collagen to thicken the fragile skin under the eyes.

Apply Eyerix® cream twice daily, gently massaging in a circular motion around the eyes.

The visible effects are excellent, brightening the whole area around your eyes, often referred to as the windows to the soul!

Some home remedies, together with Eyerix® that can further help is:

  1. Applying cold cucumber or chilled Tea bag on eyelids for temporary relief, as it helps increase the fluid circulation & removes the fluid that has built up.
  2. Lifestyle changes e.g.
  • Full night of sleep
  • Stop smoking
  • Sunscreen
  • Allergy treatment
  • Reduce Alcohol intake
  • Low salt diet
  • Wear a hat & sunglasses outdoors
  • Wash your face with cold water
  • Remove eye make up with gentle wipes

As a cosmetic measure, apply a concealer is applied in a shade that matches the skin's undertones, such as yellow or peach, and set with translucent powder.

How to lighten your body

I have often been asked of how to lighten the body.

The skin on your body is much denser than on your face.

As a Cosmetic Scientist, I have studied various skin types, and tested many of the skin lightening treatments in trials.

The conclusion was that you needed specific ingredients in a base that will actually penetrate the skin to make a real visible difference.

This is because the skin on your body is much denser than on your face and most of the herbal or “home remedies” could not get into the skin to stop the melanin formation.

Lightenex® Body Lotion is a specialist skin lightening formulation which has been specifically formulated to lighten skin, including the sensitive areas.

It is packed with 8 high strength skin lightening Actives in a conditioning moisturising formula, leaving the skin on your body with a healthy, even glow.

Its now so easy to lighten your body.

You just simply wash the body, and exfoliate it using a firm sponge, in order to remove the dead skin.

Then apply the Lightenex® Body Lotion, until fully absorbed.

Lightenex® Body Lotion is recommended by leading Dermatologists worldwide.

How to get rid of acne?

There are very few effective Acne treatment creams available.

Acne is more than a skin condition. It is a skin condition that affects your confidence, the way you present yourself in front of people, even the decisions you take.

80% of the population suffer with Acne sometime in their lifetime.

Most suffer during puberty, but it can erupt later in their lives too.

It’s even more difficult for Asians and Africans, as their skin is denser, and more susceptible to damage.

They usually suffer severe outbreaks and are then left with dark marks for life.

So what is the cause for acne?

Well, the bad news is it could be practically anything. Hormonal misbalance, specifically high levels of testosterone; hormonal changes during pregnancy and even some birth control pills; genetics; certain drugs - especially steroids and anti-depressants; greasy, low-quality cosmetics… You name it.

This is exactly why it’s so difficult to cure acne - with so many potential reasons for the problem, how are you supposed to find a one-size-fits-all solution? Would such thing even exist?

Well, there is a solution!

Acnex® cream developed by Pharmaclinix® is a unique acne cream that has Anti-inflammatory, antibiotic & skin whitening agents.

Its innovative formula helps to not only helps prevent acne, but treats the acne and clears the dark marks you may have from previous outbreaks.

Now, if you’ve tried some creams or products before that were supposed to be “amazing” - and for a while they probably were - but stopped working after a couple of weeks, here’s the reason: your skin gets used to the product and literally becomes immune to its effects. This won’t happen with Acnex - the ingredients in this product only enhance the natural ability of your body to fight acne. It works particularly well on Asian and African skin.

Other than being extremely effective, Acnex is also affordable and super easy to use - just apply twice daily.

Atrophic scars are sunken scars

Atrophic scars are sunken scars.

They are often also called ice-pick, rolling or box scars.

They were at one stage raised but most people continue to treat it like acne, not realizing that the acne has gone & they have atrophic scars.

In this situation there is no inflammation left & the scar has matured.

Atrophic Scars are:

  • Shrunk
  • Contracted
  • Sunken
  • Disfigured

These scars require a more rigorous treatment for a fast & effective result.

The scar is full of contracted bands of fibrous collagen that pulls the skin resulting in the holes that you see in old scars.

Using any cream or serum at this stage is useless.

No treatment is useful unless these contracted fibrous bands can be cut to allow normal healthy collagen to grow & fill these holes.

This procedure of cutting fibrous bands & getting new skin is called resurfacing.

The three main procedures used are

  • Microdermabrasion,
  • Laser
  • dermarolling(micro-needling).

Of these, only a good quality Dermaroller is able to cut old fibrous contracted collagen.

This procedure is a well-established treatment that can be carried out at home.

Step 1:

Use a Dermarollex® :

Using a 0.5 mm Dermarollex® roll the skin every night with sixteen passes over the affected skin. This should be done on clean dry skin.

Step 2:

After the dermarolling, Massage Scar Repairex® Ultra over the treated skin.

Step 3:

Massage Scar Repairex® Ultra again in the morning.

Wait ten minutes, then apply Sun Blockex® spf 50 sunscreen to protect the treated skin during the day.

Repeat the above procedure every day until the scar has shrunk.

The Pharmaclinix special Home treatment contains Dermarollex® 0.5mm, Scar Repairex® Ultra cream (30gm jar).

How to Treat your Eczema Hyperpigmentation

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation left after Eczema, or hyperpigmentation caused by inflammation, is a type of dermatologic mark that affects the face and body.

This is usually a reaction to inflammation, especially caused by eczema.

Eczema is a syndrome, a set of clinical signs and symptoms that are common to many conditions, and may be associated with several inflammatory skin diseases. These diseases are characterized by itching (pruritus), congestive redness of the skin (erythema) and rash. If the condition is short-lived, blisters may be observed, whereas when it becomes chronic the skin may thicken. The portion of the affected skin may vary from a small area to the whole body.

  • Lightenex® body lotion is excellent as it contains high strength skin Lighteners to lighten the dark patches left due to eczema flare-up.

The purpose of this article is to explain how a regular use of these products will treat your post eczema hyperpigmentation based on medical facts.

Hyperpigmentation occurs when external or internal factors generate increased melanin production. The skin is discolored, mostly on the areas most frequently exposed to the sun. There are several forms of hyperpigmentation, such as age spots (age spots and freckles), melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (HPI).

Eczema-related hyperpigmentation may appear as pimples or papules without significant importance or as more serious injuries. That being said, the greater the inflammation, the more the macule of hyperpigmentation will be visible

The sun can worsen its manifestations by darkening the affected areas and lengthening the time it takes to fade.

Post-Eczema hyperpigmentation can be reduced by specific Active ingredients that act to reduce the melanin synthesis, without further aggravating the skin.

Lightenex® Body lotion by Pharmaclinix® can reduce Eczema hyperpigmentation as it contains:

Arbutin is a key ingredient of many skin lightening products used in Asia; it is a natural source of hydroquinone.

• Kojic acid is a product of Japanese rice alcohol, sake. It is a natural products, and it is used by dermatologists in many countries.

• Glycolic acid (or hydroxyacetic acid) is the acid used by dermatologists for chemical peels. It is a common active ingredient in the composition of many topical creams for hyperpigmentation.

• Vitamin C derivatives have been shown to be effective in the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. They are often used in combination with other active ingredients.

This product also contains Vitamin A and E which allow a better functioning of the follicular system, and reinforce the skin immunity.

Lightenex® body lotion is a safe non acidic product. Thus, they will allow a quick and effective recovery without any side effects on the skin.

Clinically proven & established ingredients used on Asian skin have been incorporated to give the maximum result.

As a doctor, I advise this product for a regular use 2 to 3 times a week to treat hyperpigmentation.

Tummy tucks scars treatment:

After surgery, especially for cosmetic surgery procedures, wound healing involves the same phases as any other healing process. Intervention preparation, aseptic measures and sterilization conditions in the operating room protect against infectious risks and facilitate the formation of normal healing after removal of stitches. However, in many cases, scarring is of poor quality and may leave scars more or less marked resulting in aesthetic and psychological damage to the patient.
The purpose of this article is to propose a complete approach to ideally support the postoperative scar.
After the intervention, the shower of the patient is allowed in the absence of infectious risk and the changes of dressings will be done after a cleaning of the wound according to a predefined frequency depending on the wound. But the monitoring must be regular to verify the good course of healing and to prevent the dressing engorges secretions, which could cause maceration.
