The skin

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and tonicity.

The amount of fluid in the skin decreases resulting in sagging tissue and folds. In addition, the skin is exposed to adverse environmental influences. As a result, diverse skin tumors can develop. Skin tumors can be excised and examined under a microscope.

Over time, injuries to the skin can occur. The result may be more- or less-pronounced scars. For these, scar corrections of all kinds, including skin transplantations, can be performed.

In cases of increased production of sweat in the armpit that does not respond to botulinum toxin, the sweat glands can be surgically removed.
