It involves the application of the solution trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which effectively removes the outer layer on the skin through the process of exfoliation.

Radiesse is one of many different types of injectable dermal fillers used as an anti-aging treatment for both the face as well as the hands. Radiesse works by filling in lost collagen.

The results are long lasting; most patients will still see 80 per cent of their original results even after nine months’ time. While Juvederm is a very safe treatment when administered by a board-certified…

Acne does not necessarily disappear once we are no longer in our teens. In fact, acne can go on to cause the same problems well into adulthood, including embarrassment, a decreased sense of self-esteem, anxiety and even isolation.

The effectiveness of some of these methods, however, is still to be determined. Do Birth Control Pills Help Cure Acne? Dermatologists have been prescribing birth control as a way to cure acne in healthy women and those who have reached sexual maturity for decades. It is typically prescribed only after other acne treatments such as creams or antibiotics that have not worked. However, it is only “combination” oral…
