Embracing New Beginnings: A Journey with Skin Solutions

Jul 5, 2024

Starting something new can be daunting, but you'll never know the outcome unless you take the leap. Welcome to my new beginning. I am Dr Parushinee Naidoo, founder and face of Skin Solutions. My passion for sharing knowledge and my personal battle with acne led me to the field of Medical Aesthetics. Acne affected my self-esteem and social life, inspiring me to help others feel comfortable in their skin. In 2017, I started Skin Solutions, an aesthetic clinic focused on medically based skin and body treatments.

About Me

When I'm not practising, I love spending time outdoors with my adventurous children and loving husband. I have a keen interest in fashion and enjoy expressing myself through what I wear. Not many people know about my love for all things Bollywood.

Helping Teenagers with Acne

A common question I get is about helping teenagers deal with acne. Having a teenager myself, I understand the insecurities that come with it. Hormonal changes during puberty can worsen acne, making it a challenging time for teenagers. So, what do you tell your teenager when they have their first breakout? Here are five tips to help them:

  1. Keep pillowcases and phone screens clean.
  2. Don’t pinch or squeeze pimples.
  3. Invest in a good cleanser and lightweight sunscreen.
  4. If it affects self-esteem, seek professional help.
  5. Remember, this shall pass.

The Dermamelan® Peel

At Skin Solutions, we strive to offer the latest innovations for the best results. One popular treatment in our practice is the Dermamelan® Peel. This medical depigmenting method efficiently eliminates spots by acting on the skin's pigment accumulation, providing long-lasting results. The Dermamelan® Peel involves three phases: preparation, peeling, and maintenance.

Benefits of the Dermamelan® Peel

  • Non-Invasive: A topical treatment suitable for most skin types.
  • Duration of Results: Lasts 12-18 months.

Patients with melasma, post-inflammatory pigmentation, and photo pigmentation will benefit greatly from this peel. Book a consultation at Skin Solutions to address your pigmentation concerns.
