If you have a lesion on your eyelid, it’s vital that you have it checked. It may be something harmless, such as a skin tag, cyst or mole, but there is also the chance that it might be a cancer, so it’s essential to get the right diagnosis. If the lesion is suspicious, one of our consultant ophthalmologists will remove it and carry out a biopsy. If the lesion is benign, we will simply remove it swiftly and painlessly. We offer a special one-stop assessment and treatment package for any kind of abnormal tissue on the eyelid. Read on to find out further details.

Why would you want to wear sunscreen when it’s overcast or raining? Because the sun’s powerful UVA and UVB rays can penetrate through clouds and rain, harming your skin even in poor weather conditions. Wearing sunscreen in all weathers is the best way to protect against photodamage - the process by which the skin is damaged through consistent exposure to UVA and UVB rays, contributing to premature ageing and wrinkles, as well as an increased risk of skin cancer.

Hydrating skin with hyaluronate gel using Restylane Skinboosters helps to eliminate wrinkles temporarily; and patients are likely to come back for more because they see the visible effects of the rehydration and wrinkle reduction.
