  1. Hi i had a ringworm when i was a baby… however in my teenage and now early adult years the round spot on my cheek has become more visible. I also seem to have more melasma-like spots in closeby areas of that same cheek. Would laser treatment be suitable for such a condition? Or what treatment should be done?

    I would definitely like to book a consultation as this is bothering me.
    Kind regards

  2. I have superficial scars from childhood burns on my thighs as well as scars on my legs from shaving. Which treatment would be most suitable for me and what would be the price range?

    1. Dear S. How long it takes to see improvement, the degree of improvement and the treatment options are all variable. In general a sunblock and skin lightening cream is a good place to start. Expect to use it for at least a few months. Sometimes, certain lasers or IPL’s can also be used, depending on your normal skin colour.

        1. Good day
