Q: As a skincare therapist what are the major skincare concerns in the region?
Lauren Denny: Due to living in Dubai and obviously being exposed to the sunshine all the time pigmentation seems to be a concern I treat a lot of. I have a lot of patients who suffer from melasma and hyperpigmentation. Another popular treatment is active acne and acne scarring – I believe also because of living in the sunshine and the air being very sandy here people tend to suffer from spots a lot more than anywhere else I have worked. We have the great technology here for both of these concerns and I have had fantastic results with both pigmentation and acne patients.

Lauren Denny: Here at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery we have a wide range of lasers and machines. We have many of the latest technology’s including Ultheraphy – to lift and tighten your skin.

Q: What skincare advice would you like to give our readers living in the UAE?
Lauren Denny: My advice would be to make sure you see a skincare specialist regularly to make sure you are looking after your skin to its full potential! To make sure you are using professional cosmeceutical products on your face daily. Try to avoid ‘supermarket’ brands as spending that little extra on products makes a huge difference to the appearance of your skin. Finally always, always, always wear an SPF!!
