There are numerous creams and ointments you can use after laser skin resurfacing, generally with the intention of keeping the skin clean and moist. Your laser specialist may recommend one to use in the first week post-laser until the skin no longer appears raw. After this period, you will need to use a light moisturizer in the form of a cream or lotion. Many laser specialists don’t recommend sun-protecting creams right after laser resurfacing procedure. But two weeks after the treatment, they recommend that you start using a moisturizer with SPF 30 and above for the next three months. Taking care of your skin after laser resurfacing Laser skin resurfacing can be done to different penetration depths, which translates to different skin care protocols.

Skin tags are the excess flaps of skin that hang loosely from different parts of the body like the eyelids, underarms, neck, under breasts, and groin folds. Although these tags do not hurt or cause any known medical condition, they are undeniably unpleasant and embarrassing. If you want to get rid of skin tags, here are a few tips to help you with the process: Ask your doctor to remove them with a scalpel A physician can remove skin tags simply by severing them at the base with a pair of scissors or scalpel after numbing the site with a local anesthetic. If done properly, this is a fairly painless method that can be used to get rid of multiple tags in a single sitting. Cauterizing the skin tags Besides cutting the skin tags, your physician can also recommend treating…

Although excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is not a medically serious condition, it can be embarrassing and distressing. For instance, someone with bad palm sweating may be constantly afraid of offering a cold, sweaty handshake or of having their sweat drip onto their work documents or office hardware. Someone with bad armpit sweating faces other problems, such as the embarrassing wet patches on clothes under the arms or the need to change clothes at least once during the day. Such events can adversely affect one’s social life. Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do to manage and treat the condition, including lifestyle changes. Generally, lifestyle changes cannot cure the primary cause of excessive sweating, but it can dramatically improve the symptoms and give you a confidence boost. Dressing to hide the sweat There are many…

When seeking any scar treatment, it is common practice to completely control any acne in order to prevent an outbreak that can lessen the merits of the scar treatment. Scarring caused by acne is particularly difficult to treat. But recently, it was reported that skin needling in combination with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application can effectively treat rolling acne scars. How plasma treatment works Platelet-rich plasma contains autologous growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factor, epidermal growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor, and transforming growth factor, all of which act synergistically with growth factors induced via skin needling to promote wound-healing response. The PRP injection itself is a fairly simple process that involves the following: Step 1: A small amount of healthy blood is taken from your arm. Step 2: The platelets and plasma are separated from the rest of the blood…

A TCA peel is a type of chemical peel used to improve one’s skin. It involves the application of the solution trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which effectively removes the outer layer on the skin through the process of exfoliation. It is considered to be a light to medium strength peel. The concentration of the peel will ultimately be determined by your particular skin issues. What Can A TCA Peel Do For Me? TCA peels can treat a number of skin problems, including: Skin that has been damaged by the sun (including brown spots) Wrinkles (smile lines, crow’s feet, wrinkling of the upper eyelids and under eye wrinkles) Uneven or blotchy skin tone and issues with the pigment of your skin Facial scars Blemished skin, including those with acne or scars from the chicken pox.

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. It can correct a number of signs of aging, including marionette lines and smile lines (nasolabial folds) as well as sunken cheeks. These problems occur naturally, over time, as collagen and elastin fibres break down. This can make your face appear older than you are and make you look as though you are tired, angry or sad. Radiesse will allow you to reclaim a more youthful appearance. In fact, in just one treatment, it immediately makes smile lines appear softer, provides a more lifted appearance to the face by replacing lost volume and makes the jawline more contoured and tight. The results of Radiesse are long lasting, immediate…

Juvederm is one of many types of fillers used to make wrinkles less prominent and to plump out lips. Over time, as the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin depletes, our skin begins to lose volume. Juvederm, which is a filler made out of hyaluronic acid, works to fill in this loss of volume once it is injected into the skin. It does so by altering our own body’s production of hyaluronic acid as well as mixing with the current water in our skin. Juvederm can be used to correct frown lines, smile lines, acne scars and to make your lips appear fuller and plumper. 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. When it comes to curing acne, there are a myriad number of methods prescribed by dermatologists to treat it, ranging from creams to antibiotics to simply changing one’s diet and even birth control pills. 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…

Acne scars and large pores are rather commonplace. Both can create a lack of self-confidence and make life miserable for sufferers. But there is help! Studies have shown that about 95 per cent of all people who have acne also have some scarring. So, the sooner you get treatment for those scars, the better outcome you’ll have! Both shallow and deep acne scars have been successfully treated using the fractionated laser, which also improves skin texture by shrinking large pores. It can actually reduce acne scars by up to 80 per cent. The laser pokes tiny holes into the skin allowing collagen to re-grow. In fact, fractional laser resurfacing has become the gold standard for laser acne scar removal. The laser gets its name from the fact that just a fraction of the skin is directly treated. Skin that’s not…
