SCLERODERMA contraindications In beauty therapy


Scleroderma is an uncommon condition that results in hard, thickened areas of skin and sometimes problems with internal organs and blood vessels.

Scleroderma is caused by the immune system attacking the connective tissue under the skin and around internal organs and blood vessels. This causes scarring and thickening of the tissue in these areas.

There are several different types of scleroderma that can vary in severity. Some types are relatively mild and may eventually improve on their own, while others can lead to severe and life-threatening problems.

There are two main types of scleroderma: 

  • Localised scleroderma – just affects the skin
  • Systemic sclerosis – may affect blood circulation and internal organs as well as the skin
Is scleroderma contagious?
