IInjections of filler are placed in the vermillion border which separates the body of the lip from the skin. A given lip shape can only be enhanced with dermal filler treatment, it cannot be altered into another lip shape. Avoid this treatment if you have a very thin, diminutive upper lip as filler treatment along the border in this situation can lead to projection of the upper lip and an unaesthetic outcome. Typically one syringe is enough to treat both upper and lower borders. Recommended filler: Teosyal Global Action, Teosyal RHA

ACNEface – this affects almost everyone with acneback – this affects more than half of people with acnechest – this affects about 15% of people with acneTypes of spotsblackheads – small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they're not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation (colouring)whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and won't empty when squeezedpapules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sorepustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pusnodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painfulcysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they're large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarringWhat can I do if I have acne?Don't wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.Don't try to "clean out" blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.Avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic (this means the product is less likely to block the pores in your skin).Completely remove make-up before going to bed.If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.Regular exercise can't improve your acne, but it can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising, as sweat can irritate your acne.Wash your hair regularly and try to avoid letting your hair fall across your face.There are six main types of spot caused by acne:The self-help techniques below may be useful:Although acne can't be cured, it can be controlled with treatment. Several creams, lotions and gels for treating spots are available at pharmacies.If you develop acne, it's a good idea to speak to your pharmacist for advice. Products containing a low concentration of benzoyl peroxide may be recommended – but be careful, as this can bleach clothing.If your acne is severe or appears on your chest and back, it may need to be treated with antibiotics or stronger creams that are only available on prescription from BERNI OUR PHARMACIST PRACTITIONER

Diptheria, Tetanus & Polio (3 In 1) (£35)
A combination vaccine called Revaxis is available to protect adults against Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio. Children normally receive these vaccinations as part of the national schedule.

The disease is spread through open cuts and wounds that have been contaminated with infected soil.Tetanus is found throughout the world.Tetanus toxin spreads through the bloodstream and can cause serious damage to the nervous system. Early symptoms of the disease include stiffness of the jaw muscles (lockjaw), difficulties swallowing and muscle spasms. The disease can spread to affect more muscles in the body including the respiratory muscles. This can cause difficulties with breathing and death can occur.Treatment for tetanus usually involves giving immunoglobulin and antibiotics. Those infected will often require intensive care until the effects of the disease wear off.

Cold sores are small blisters that develop on the lips or around the mouth. They're caused by the herpes simplex virus and usually clear up without treatment within 7 to 10 days.What causes cold sores?Herpes simplex virusTreating cold soresYou may not have any symptoms when you first become infected with the herpes simplex virus. An outbreak of cold sores may happen some time later.Cold sores often start with a tingling, itching or burning sensation around your mouth. Small fluid-filled sores then appear, usually on the edges of your lower lip.Read more about the symptoms of cold sores.See your GP if a cold sore hasn't healed after 7 to 10 days.The herpes simplex virus is responsible for cold sores. There are two strains, known as HSV-1 and HSV-2.Read more about the causes of cold sores.The herpes simplex virus – or "cold sore virus" – is highly contagious and can be easily passed from person to person by close direct contact. After someone has contracted the virus, it remains inactive (dormant) most of the time.However, every so often the virus can be activated by certain triggers, resulting in an outbreak of cold sores. These triggers vary from person to person, but can include sunlight, fatigue, an injury to the affected area, and, in women, their period.Some people have frequently recurring cold sores around two or three times a year, while others have one cold sore and never have another. Some people never get cold sores at all because the virus never becomes active.Cold sores usually clear up by themselves without treatment within 7 to 10 days.However, antiviral creams are available over the counter from pharmacies without a prescription. If used correctly, these can help ease your symptoms and speed up the healing time.To be effective, these treatments should be applied as soon as the first signs of a cold sore appear – when you feel a tingling, itching or burning sensation around your mouth. Using an antiviral cream after this initial period is unlikely to have much of an effect.Cold sore patches are also available that contain hydrocolloid gel, which is an effective treatment for skin wounds. The patch is placed over the cold sore while it heals.Antiviral tablets may be prescribed for severe cases.Read more about treating cold sores.
Conjunctivitis is a common condition that causes redness and inflammation of the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye (the conjunctiva).People often refer to conjunctivitis as red eye.Other symptoms of conjunctivitis include itchiness and watering of the eyes, and sometimes a sticky coating on the eyelashes (if it's caused by an allergy).
