Skin Types

Why is the appearance of the skin so important?

The skin is the largest organ of the body and has many functions such as regulation of body temperatures, sensing painful stimuli and preserving water and electrolyte balances.It acts as a shield and protects the toxic substances from being permeated into the body. Being the outermost tissue it shields the body from the harmful effects of UV radiation emitted by the sun. The colour and texture of the skin mark the individuals within a society.

The skin has been studied laboriously in the fields of medicine, computer vision and most of all cosmetology. Cosmetology focuses on the appearance of the skin. Any negative change in appearance of the skin can have a drastic effect on an individual’s mental health causing low morale and pessimistic routines.

Keeping this in mind Satya Skin Hair Clinic focuses on improving lives through cosmetic surgery and skin care counseling.
