There are various types of sensitive skin including eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and facial redness. The occurrence of these skin conditions may be due to the extensive exposure to pollution, dust, chemical substances, sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, inadequate environmental living conditions, poor intake of nutritional foods and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Individuals with sensitive skin will often experience symptoms of skin rashes, flushing, redness, itchiness and irritability.
The symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis produce skin flakiness, rashes, redness and irritation. They are found on both sides of the cheekbones, between the eye brows, sides of the nose, along the front of the hairline, behind and inside the ears.

Steps in the Treatment of Sensitive Skin
Step 1 – Reducing facial redness, inflammation and rashes
Step 2 – Stimulating the construction of new skin cells
Step 3 – Regenerating healthy skin cells
The following steps detail BSL Clinic’s treatment of sensitive skin:
Step 1 – Reducing facial redness, inflammation and rashes – light laser therapy is undertaken to minimise the direct causes of skin inflammation and irritation. The advanced laser technology focuses on regenerating the deteriorated cells underneath the surface of the skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen. Once skin cells become healthier, the surface layer of the skin strengthens and the facial redness, inflammation and rashes disappear. These results are the overall improvement of the skin.
Step 2 – Stimulating the construction of new skin cells – a combination of advanced laser technology with natural moisturising and ceramides to create new healthy skin cells, preventing skin sensitivity and irritation. Laser treatment is utilised to stimulate the construction of new cells underneath the surface of the skin. The surrounding skin will not be harmed throughout this process due to the laser’s accuracy of the targeted area. It takes approximately one month to form new collagen and another three months (vary between individuals) to build a new skin cell structure.
Step 3 – Regenerating healthy skin cells – US FDA approved cell therapy is undertaken to restore, protect, and improve skin conditions and directly increases skin moistness. The structure of the skin includes 40% protein, 40% water and compounds, and 20% fat. BSL Clinic’s Skinesia skin care products have been developed using the finest quality ingredients, which aid in the stimulation of new skin cells to protect and regenerate deteriorated skin cells. It also increases moistness and prevents irritation of the skin, bringing about long-term positive outcomes.
