They want their skin to look young and glowing all the time.

And if they think there is so much as a blemish appearing in their perfect skin they don’t hesitate to rush to a doctor and seek medical treatment. Skin diseases are common throughout the world. All over the world they account for about 1 in 10 consultations in primary care. In tropical and often poorer areas, infections such as leprosy and onchocerciasis predominate, while in more affluent temperate countries, chronic inflammatory disorders such as atopic eczema occur most commonly.

Skin disorders can be an isolated complaint, part of an inherited disorder such as Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, or a feature of systemic disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). But whatever the condition that is causing the skin problem the IPL machines can help to reduce the symptoms to a certain extent and maybe even get rid of the problem completely. Helping your skin return to its normal self. The common presenting symptoms of a rash or lesions are itch, pain, disturbed sleep and anxiety/psychological upset. Because of their visibility, skin diseases can affect self-esteem and quality of life. They may also impair the ability to work: for example, hand eczema in a chef.

Because they want to get the best possible treatment that will get rid of the problem as fast as possible. But in saying that skin disease is rarely life-threatening, although, for example, malignant melanoma, toxic epidermal necrolysis and pemphigus can be fatal.With an average surface area of 2 m2 in the adult, the skin is the largest organ in the human body and serves many purposes including acting a physical barrier against friction and shearing forces, protection against infection (immune and innate), chemicals, ultraviolet irradiation, prevention of excessive water loss or absorption, ultraviolet-induced synthesis of vitamin D and temperature regulator. And this is the reason we have to take such good care of it. Because even a lack of one of these functions might lead to invariable damage to our other bodily functions.
