A wart is a hard, calloused growth of the epidermis in the form of a cauliflower-shaped nodule. A wart is caused by a virus from the human papilloma (HPV) family. Some viruses cause warts on the skin, others on the mucous membranes. Warts often show up on the hands and feet.
Stretch marks are marks that can appear on the skin of the body when the skin grows rapidly. The best known example is that of a woman's stomach during pregnancy. However, they can also develop on breasts or thighs if they grow faster than the skin can keep up with. The connective tissue is torn subcutaneously by excessive tension, which is not painful, but does lead to purple-red marks that turn into white scars after a few years.
Rosacea kenmerkt zich door een felrood verkleurde huid, met name in het gebied rond de neus en de wangen. Er zijn gesprongen bloedvaatjes zichtbaar, maar vaak ook rode bultjes en puistjes. De meeste patiënten die rosacea hebben, denken dat ze ?gewoon? last hebben van acne. Dit komt met name door de aanwezigheid van de pukkeltjes in het aangedane gebied. Rosacea heeft echter niets met acne te maken en is een chronische huidaandoening.
A skin condition in which there is too much or too little pigment in the skin. There are different types of pigmentation spots. The most common types are age spots, a pregnancy mask (melasma) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which develops after skin damage. A lack of pigment can be caused by damage to the skin or by skin conditions such as vitiligo.
We speak of excess hair when too much and too thick hairs grow in places where normally no or only thin hairs grow. There are two forms of excessive hair: hypertrichosis and hirsutism. They usually occur individually, but can also occur in combination.
Age spots are benign pigmented skin lesions where elderly suffer from. Skin areas that have been exposed to the sun, especially the face and hands, develop round or oval-shaped light to dark brown colored spots. The spots can be a few millimeters to a few centimeters in size.
As someone gets older, a lot changes in the skin. The upper skin layers become thinner and the number of blood vessels and sebaceous glands decreases in the skin layer below. This creates more space between the different skin layers. The amounts of collagen and elastin (the fibers that provide the firmness of the skin) also decrease, causing the subcutaneous connective tissue to lose its firmness. In addition, the skull shrinks with age, causing the skin around it to become looser. All of this makes the skin look and feel slacker and less resilient.
Endermologie (LPG) is dé behandeling voor een verslapte lichaamshuid. Een behandeling met endermologie is een vrijwel pijnloze behandelmethode, die zowel de huid als onderhuid en het onderhuids bindweefsel aanpakt. Endermologie verbetert de structuur van het bindweefsel, bevordert de doorbloeding en stimuleert de afvoer van afvalstoffen.
Huidzorg Amstelland uses Skin Tech and Dermaquest peels. We have deliberately chosen these brands because they offer a wide variety of strengths and the peels contain many active substances. This makes the treatment unique.
The peels have been developed for all skin types. Previously it was only possible for lighter skin types and now the peels can also be applied for tinted and dark skin types.
They are high quality peels. Instead of applying the same peeling every six weeks, which results in no further results, Huidzorg Amstelland uses 'The Guide and Protect System' (GPS System). The GPS system has been developed to safely determine the right peel for the right time. This allows the peels to be tailored to individual needs.
The peels offer optimal results for the following indications: Acne, Anti-aging, Damaged skin, Combination skin, Dry skin, Hypersensitive skin, Scars, Pigmentation, Rosacea and Oily skin
