Oily skin is shiny, thick and dull colored. Often a chronically oily skin has coarse pores and pimples and other embarrassing blemishes. It is prone to blackheads. In this type of skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. The pores are enlarged and the skin has a coarse look.
Pores are tiny little openings (resembling little holes) in the skin where the body's natural oil (called sebum), produced in the sebaceous glands, is released to the surface of the skin. Pores are also home to all of the follicles of hair that grow on your body.

We use a range of advanced Q-switched lasers to deliver the safest and most effective technique to remove your unwanted tattoo.
