A Closer Look At Wart Removal
Surgery is often a popular choice for wart removal. Usually following home treatment and chemical applications on the warts that has failed, surgery remains a common choice for many who seek wart removal. The reason is simple: surgery works. It's effective, simple surgery, usually performed in a doctor's office or outpatient center, causes a minimum of pain, very little scarring in the hands of a talented, skilled professional and is usually covered by insurance.
There are two forms of commonly used surgical techniques used for wart removal.
The first is a combination of electrosurgery and curettage. Electrosurgery means using tools that send a small electrical charge into the head of the wart, effectively burning it. Curettage means cutting the wart off completely using a surgeon's knife or a specially designed spoon shaped device intended for this use. Most often, these two procedures are used together, sending the wart into shock with the electricity and then removing it with the spoon shaped surgeon's knife. Lately, state of the art lasers have been used with growing popularity and enviable success rates. They effectively burn off the wart by shooting an intense beam of light into the base or root of the wart, severing its blood supply and killing it.
The wart is usually left to die if it is internal or it might be cut off after the laser treatment. Whatever treatment you choose for wart removal, you can rest assured that even if it is new, it has been tested frequently and perfected before it has been used on you. Go to your doctor at the onset of any symptoms or irregularities you may notice in or on your body. Let him diagnose your problem and then discuss the possible treatments. And if you elect wart removal, trust in medical science to have found just the right way to go about it for maximum success and minimum pain.
All There Is To Know About Botox Injections
In general, Botox is the brand name for a botulin toxin type A, of which there are subtypes. The type B variety (BTX-B) is known as Neurobloc in the E.U. or Myobloc in the U.S.A. Both are employed in medical and/or therapeutic purposes. Botox itself is more popularly known for it's non-surgical cosmetic function. It is also known as Vistabel in the E.U. and Dysport.
In the 1950s, although experimented with much earlier, very small injections of botulin toxin type A (BTX-A) were used to decrease overactive muscle activity. In that same period, it was experimented with in cosmetic treatments. In 1989, in the U.S., Allergan Inc. got approval from the F.D.A. and named their drug Botox. Approval for its cosmetic use came in 2002, when researchers discovered is cosmetic effects.
Technically speaking, botulin toxin type A (BTX-A) is produced by bacteria. Once processed, its injection serves to interfere with nerve impulses, amongst other things. As such, it has come to serve many purposes in non-surgical cosmetic treatment, namely the removal of lines. However, its effects are not permanent, so future injections may be required.
It has been used to treat glabellar lines (the appearance of severe frown lines between the eyebrows), excessive underarm sweating, spasticity, muscle disorders, and even obesity. The study of other treatments using Botox remain ongoing.
Botox is usually considered a prespcription drug that needs to be administered by a qualified physician. For this reason, it's recommended that it be done in a controlled setting, i.e. a doctor's office. In this way, any possible immediate side effects can be monitored by the administering physician. For this reason, among others, so-called "Botox parties" are not recommended.
Apparently in the U.S., Botox is licenced for use in single-use vials. In other words, it's prescribed for use for a single person. The vials do not contain anything that can prevent contamination if repeatedly used for more than one person. However, this is how many individuals aim to lower the cost of the injections, besides undergoing the injections in a more social atmosphere.
Unfortunately, the consumption of alcohol in such an environment can defeat the purpose of the injections. After receiving an injection, it's recommended that the individual: not rub their face and stand up straight for several hours. Both are meant to prevent the Botox from moving outside of the targeted area. Here, one of the most commonly know side effects are droopy eyelids. This is because the muscles controlling the eyelids have become paralyzed. However, this side effect is normally considered to last only a few days.
Regardless, as Botox comes from a neurotoxin, much care must be taken with its use as in any treatment. You should also consult the physician regarding the required frequency of injections. This may be anywhere between four to eight months, but no less than three.
Aha S For Normalizing Combination Skin
Often the biggest frustration for those with combination skin is caring for it properly. Having both dry and oily skin areas on your face can make skin care seem almost impossible. There are, however, things that you can do to care for and keep your combination skin healthy and feeling good.
For one thing, some areas of your face may feel tight after you wash. This will typically be on the parts of your face not included in the T-zone area. These areas will likely also look flaky and dull and may feel rough.
First of all, make sure you are cleansing every day. Use a mild cleanser on your entire face. Use the cleanser twice a day, preferably before bed at night and after get up in the morning. These are the times your face most needs to be cleansed anyway, but if you have combination skin it is imperative.
Get a good moisturizer. Once you have identified which parts of your face are the dry parts, most likely these areas are not in the T-zone and this is the area you will treat. Use the moisturizer on those dry areas only. Using it in your oily T-zone will only make that area worse.
The goal when you have combination skin is to normalize it. Normalizing is trying to gain a balance between the oily and dry areas so that all your skin looks and feels the same. In order to accomplish this feat, you want to look for products that are made for such normalization. For instance, ones that contain alpha hydroxyl acids (fruit acids or AHA's) or retinols will work best. Retinols are a vitamin A derivative. Such products should help you to gain more normal and even looking skin.
The reason AHA creams are so beneficial to your skin is that they area catalyst for skin cell regeneration. By burning off or removing the top layer of skin cells (or the too oily and too dry ones) they expose the healthier skin cells beneath them. These cells are more likely to absorb moisturizers. They also help improve skin elasticity through their water-binding properties. This can help with that "tight" feeling you may get in the dry areas with your combination skin. The only thing about which you need to be aware is that once you are using AHA's, you need to continue using them. Once you stop, your cells will not regenerate at the rate they were with the AHA and will return to their original state very soon.
Wrinkles That Fold And Age
With the media shoved in our face everywhere that we go, our visual appearance has become a huge part in our every day lives. Whether it is tanning, hair coloring, plastic surgery, or "Anti-aging cream", we can see the dominance of image in our society. Everyone wants to look young, healthy, and like Brad Pitt, Right?
As a result of this pressure on image, Anti-aging creams are a heavily marketed and advertised product, promising to deliver healthier and younger looking skin, while reducing wrinkles. Most of the time these creams are targetted at women, but we are now beginning to see products that are more targeted to men as well. This shift is because are society is starting to more readily accept men being conscious about their looks and image.
There are several different forms of anti wrinkle treatment. The biggest advantage to using a ceram over another method such as plastic surgery and botox injections is the huge difference in cost. Many critics will tell you that the marketing and advertising that goes into these products is actually damaging, and is playing with the fears in women and men. Really there isn't huge proof that any of these products work well, if at all, which is another thing you will hear critics rave about.
Do wrinkles in our skin matter, and do these products really work? I would recommened asking yourself that first question, and spending some time to answer the question for yourself as every individual is different.
Healthy Skin Care Education In 3 Easy Steps
Most people are self conscious about their skin. Everyone wants their skin to look young and healthy, and will go to many lengths to protect our skin from anything in the environment that could harm it. Our skin is the largest organ in, or on, our body. It performs many functions, primarily serving as protections against foreign substances entering out body. It also serves as a transfer point for the release of toxins from our body, and keeps water inside, inside. These are just some of the reasons our skin needs to be protected and cared for. Everyone wants to obtain the flawless skin of today's models and celebrities, and here are some ways that you can achieve just that.
Many experts say that exfoliating your skin is another great way to attain a beautiful skin. So, try to invest in a good body exfoliant or "loofah", as it is commonly called, as it is capable of eliminating the dead skin cells from your body. Accordingly, this should be done once or twice a week so to free the skin to breathe. What's more, exfoliants help to prevent ingrown hair from developing.
However, it is necessary to avoid using any body exfoliant on the skin on the face. The main reason for this precaution is that the facial tissue is more sensitive and finer than those tissues of the body.
Something you might not have considered to be beneficial to your skin, yet is key to maintain a healthy glow is drink lots of water. It is often said that the simplest way to clear and supple skin that is no longer dry is to drink plenty of water. Water has long been considered as the most effective natural treatment or an almost free treatment for any skin condition because of its being alkaline, with pH 7.3. It prevents dehydration which is capable of producing sebum or oil from the sebaceous glands. Your skin needs water in order for it to function best, thus doctors and nutritionists recommend that a daily intake of between 6 to 8 glasses of water per day is highly needed.
To maintain and achieve healthier skin you should also watch your diet. Nutrition plays a vital role in skin health too. Specific foods such as those acidic foods and dairy products are said to be potent in causing an allergic reaction in some people. Also, one of the widely debated topics in the area of nutrition today is chocolates. Some say that chocolate does affect the condition of the skin, while others say it doesn't. Whatever the result may be, the best recommendation is just to follow a nutritious diet that has a number of fresh fruits and green-leafy veggies, as well as fiber.
Natural Mineral Makeup 3 Reasons Why It Should Be Your Natural Summer Sun Protection
Mineral Makeup is the natural solution for any person looking for natural sunscreen this summer. Especially if you are looking for a gentle and safe sunscreen. Then look no further than your makeup bag for fabulous looking results and full spectrum sun protection.
Here are the top 3 reasons why mineral makeup should be your sunscreen of choice:
1. The two principal ingredients in mineral makeup are natural sunscreens, giving full range UVA and UVB sun protection.
Zinc oxide is the top ingredient in mineral makeup. Because it absorbs both UVA and UVB rays of ultraviolet light very effectively it is the most widely used ingredient in sunscreen products. This mineral helps protect against sunburn and other damage to the skin caused by ultra violet light.
Titanium dioxide is also widely used as a sunscreen. Because of it's brightness and very high refractive index, next only to diamonds in brightness, this mineral added to mineral makeup gives your face a radiant glow.
2. Mineral Makeup helps fight acne. And that is very good news if you want to wear makeup out doors in the hot summer. If you have acne, then you probably know that wearing makeup and cosmetics when you are going to be sweating only aggravates and worsens your acne.
Mineral makeup is your solution. It is inorganic, and repels bacteria feeding moisture from entering your pores, yet the minerals are ground so that they lay weightlessly on your skin and do not clog the pores.
3. Mineral Makeup does not "melt"off your face when you sweat. Because it contains titanium dioxide, which turns the extra moisture into a strong steralizer, the moisture cannot be absorbed by the minerals and thus the makeup will not move or run off in the hot summer sun. This makeup stays put.
The steralizing effects of the makeup also give it a powerful punch in the acne fighting department. No wonder dermatologists love it, and call it "the skin care makeup."
How To Dye Your Pubic Hair
More recently, women have become aware about the condition of their pubic hair. From Brazilian waxes to pubic hair shaping and pubic shaving, women are starting to treat their pubic region with much more care and attention. For a lot of women, shaving their pubic region is a step too far and many would just like to improve the look of their pubic hair. One easy way to do this is by coloring or dyeing your pubic hair.
Coloring or dyeing your pubic hair is a quick and easy way to cover over some of those gray hairs that may be creeping in. Alternatively, you may just want a change and what better way to surprise your partner than with a new pubic hair color?
One important point to make at this stage is that sometimes hair colors and dyes may cause irritability. With the pubic region being such a sensitive area great care must be taken not to irritate or damage the skin in any way.
How to Dye Your Pubic Hair.
The first step is to obtain your hair dye. Go down to your favorite beauty/hair/drug store and purchase a standard hair dye coloring kit that best matches your pubic hair color. One great tip here is that because pubic hair can be coarser and slightly darker than your head hair; go for one shade darker than you would if you were buying for your head hair.
Although you may already be using a favorite hair dye product, it would be wise to test the hair coloring on a small patch of skin on your pubic area. If ANY signs of redness/itching/soreness or other adverse effects arise do not go any further and seek medical advice about using such products.
Before going any further, take the instructions from the Hair Dyeing product and read the instructions CAREFULLY. Once you have satisfied yourself that you understand them fully, continue to the next step.
You are now ready to dye your pubic hair.
Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly on the sensitive areas of your genitals. If any spills occur, this will prevent the dye getting to your most sensitive areas. Once you have done this, put on the gloves that are provided with the Hair Dye product. Now mix the color as per instructions and then add a small amount of moisturizing shampoo to the mix. Make sure they are completely mixed together.
Now gently brush the mix onto your pubic hairs, concentrating on the areas that need most attention. Leave the mixture applied as laid out in the instructions, usually 10 minutes to 30 minutes.
Don't worry if you did not achieve the color you wanted on the first attempt. Wait a few days (to avoid irritation) and just re-apply as laid out above. Eventually you will build to the color you desired.
Enjoy your new look!
The Jolie Look Is In Lip Augmentation
Full lush lips are becoming increasingly popular, thanks to Hollywood movie stars. The Angelina Jolie look is in, and more women are seeking lip augmentation. Collagen has, for the longest time, taken claim as the leading agent used for lip enhancement. However, results are temporary, and so permanent lip augmentations have been developed.
The implant is made of material designed specifically for the safe and effective augmentation of soft tissue, such as lips. The product comes in different sizes and shapes to fit each patient's particular needs, as well as desires, in a perfectly sterile package designed for only one single use. The surgical technique is performed in a sterile fashion. Like many cosmetic surgeries nowadays, lip augmentation is done by using very precise methods to increase the effective appearance of the insert, as well as minimize recovery time. This combination is the ideal for anyone looking at cosmetic surgery.
There are literally hundreds of implants for different lip shapes, size, and thickness. Since every person has a different mouth, and a different desired look, there need to be just as many options to meet all the demands. The best way to figure out which implant is right for you is to meet with the doctor, describe what look you're going after (be as specific as possible, every detail can only help the decision making process), and then see what he/she suggests. Unlike collagen, these implants are permanent, but if you have the surgery and for some reason are unsatisfied with how it looks, lip implants are generally fairly easy to remove without any threat of problems. As for any fear of scarring: remember that the incisions are made as small as possible in the lips, and so there may be very tiny marks, but these are on your lips, which make them even more undetectable.
An obvious question comes up: is there any change in feeling? The answer is yes, but only early on during the recovery time. It is not unusual for a patient to feel some numbness, maybe mild tingling, but over time your lips will return to normal. And no, the implant is not detectable when kissing. If you press your fingers hard on your lips you might feel the implant, might being the key word.
Complications are rare for this procedure, though they do exist. Your specialist will be able to give you the full list. If the Angelina Jolie look is the one you're looking for, and you're tired of repeat treatments, this could very well be the solution you're looking for.
