Avatar f tn Hi there, Every procedure has its own advantages and disadvantages .Laser can selectively target dark, coarse hairs leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Few hairs may be resistant to the laser treatment or grow again after treatment .The most common side effects of laser hair removal are skin irritation, pigment changes etc. Rarer side effects are blistering, crusting or scarring. It is best to take the decision regarding laser treatment after consulting your dermatologist. Do keep me posted.
Avatar f tn ) I'd be really thankful if u discuss my problem and inform me.
Avatar f tn I did have it done, about 5 treatments but discontinued because i saw little result and the cost was expensive.
Avatar f tn I hope to get a laser treatment for my unwanted hair but I'm confused that some of my friends are saying not to do that because it may cause skin cancers lately and it's not good that your sweat glands and sebaceous glands will get damage etc. Can someone help me give me a clear answer whether these facts are correct or not??? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I've tried topicals like Retin A micro, but it makes my skin too red and it has no effect on the pores. Salicylic acid works ok, but once again even if the pores are clear, they are still huge and I keep getting the same blackheads every other day due to the sebeacous glands. I've looked into lasers such as Laser Genesis and lasers such as Smoothbeam, Cooltouch, and Aramis which are supposed to shrink the sebaceous glands, but I don't know if they will actually work.
Avatar n tn Rockoff, I am an older primary care physician who has been exclusively practicing primary skin care for five years. I do laser hair removal, photofacial rejuvenation, Acne care, and a number of other primary skin care services. I have a good relationship with the areas Dermatologists and create many referrals for them. At present I am using the Clearlight from Lumenis to treat Acne. My experience with the light suggests it has been oversold and hyped by the company.
Avatar n tn Was he already exposed because of the skin to skin contact that occurred 3 weeks prior to the appearance of the first lesion? Is it at all possible he was the source (I've read incubation periods of 3 weeks)? Also when its stated that most people clear hpv in a year, is that a year from the infection date, or a year from the appearance of the lesion? Technically I was infected last summer so i was wondering if future breakouts are less likely because more time had passed?
Avatar f tn Also, do you think it is alright for him to use his (DCL) revitalizing gel (use for dy skin if you have heard of it) or should he use something like a Lubriderm or CeraVe lotion because he has been using a prescription gel (Benzaclin) at night (it was to clear up the folliculitis) that dries his skin? Thank you so much for your time.
Avatar n tn is there anything I can do for the shallowness? Topical creams, microdermabrasion, laser? I just want my skin to be clear and smooth! Please help.
Avatar n tn im an 18 year old male.. on my chin, i have little spots under the skin which you can only see close up and when the skin is stretched. in time, these spots come out and become white pimples. when they go away they leave marks which i hate. i only really get them in the same area, below the lip (chin). WHat is the best thing to do? i use neutrogena cream at night (dermatologist told me to use this) and i have started a low GI diet. Its been about 4 months and no real difference.
Avatar n tn e. electrosurgery, C02 laser, PDL laser), that the PDL laser is likely the most innocuous? After having this thing for 2+ years and watching it slowly, but surely, grow and spread in its area, I've lose faith in the "wait and see" approach. Additionally, any method which involves damageing good skin (nitrogen/salicyclic acid) just makes the wart bigger.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be cysts, pompholyx or viral warts. For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.
Avatar n tn Get enough sleep and eat a balanced diet everyday. If the scars still persist, you could consult your skin specialist about dermabrasion or laser treatment. It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar n tn I saw a plastic surgeon who offered co2 laser resurfacing and punches for the deeper pitted scars (which I have about a dozen of.) In what order should this be done?I also have lots of blackheads and large pores (on my nose mostly) and I am almost 50. The worst of the the scarring is on my cheeks. He said I could go either way but I want to know what standard procedure is. Also should I have the small pitted scars subscised 1st?
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor, I have been considering quite seriously having a skin resurfacing method done of my face. I dont know which treatment would be better for removing the light indented scars on my face, on both cheeks.. Do you have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn however, the skin on the upper lip is far too sensitive for laser hair removal, whatever your skin tone. I have spent a fortune on creams such as Clinique's dark spot corrector with little effect. The issue is that the damage caused by the laser is so deep no topical solution is effective. I fear that the hyperpigmention will worsen over time, which terrifies me as the situation is already distressing enough.
Avatar n tn This is just one of the most basic problems that most people encounter. I too had been through this and I am really happy to say that it was just a passing affair. I had tried a lot of remedies unless I used Clearly Gone . This product definitely suits your problem as you can see the results as you use it. This is just my opinion as I can feel your pain of being troubled by acne problems and would be happy that someone is relieved by the problem which had troubled me.
Avatar m tn I have many embarrassing scars on my face, My question is, is it okay to have laser treatment on my face or microdembrasion or do i suffer the possiblilty of having my acne scars worse than they are now?
Avatar f tn It's been about 4 weeks now since I have been using Xtreme Brite. It's a cream to clear away black spots. The black spots have been left after the pimples and I been trying to get rid of them. This Xtreme Brite cream is like a bleaching cream and now it's making my whole chin peeling and it's looks like my chin is bleached. Will my natural brown skin color come back? How long will it take for me to recover from this? Is this permanent? I'm worried and scared. It's horrible.
Avatar n tn Hi, Pregnancy related allergy reaction are known and seen anytime in pregnancy. They present with lesions anywhere in the body and are relieved with end of pregnancy and anti-allergics. How are you doing now? Have you consulted an allergy specialist for your symptoms? Have you had any benefit from calamine lotion and antihistamine medications? This could be related to hormonal changes associated with the pregnancy and postpartum period.
Avatar n tn I went the a demotologist twice and they kept giving me glyclic acid, 10% it does clear up my skin but it only brighten the spots and make them more visibly and sensitive to sunlight, the result is not effective it only make matters worse when I have to go outside, I do use sunblock but I will let you know there is no sunblock that can beat the sun light, heat, and pollution in Houston Tx.
1430704 tn?1306391107 Have you used any new makeup line that might not be suitable for your skin type? Try to think back to what you did when your skin was more balanced. My guess is that you've passed the puberty stage so it's probably something you've done differently in your routine. Simple is usually the best. Don't overload your skin with too many treatments or products. Cleanse once in the morning and once at night. Eat a balanced diet and avoid too many oily or sugary foods.
Avatar m tn Usually If i scratch my skin the skin inflammates at these places - my skin is like that from childhood. I had a history of skin troubles from childhood, like white flaky skin on cheeks and warts, but they had been cured before.
Avatar f tn Hi, laser surgery can be expensive so consider your other options first. Your doctor can prescribe a topical gel such as Differin (adapalene) or Duac (benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin) to clear your skin. Acne is caused by a sensitivity to the effects of androgens (hormones) in your body. Female acne patients will benefit from taking the combined oral contraceptive pill as the oestrogen it contains blocks the action of androgens on your skin. Eloise.
Avatar m tn I remember once when I went outing at desert, when I returned, my skin was almost clear. I played in dune for about 2 hours and was never out in sun there... I even tried exposing my skin to sun but, it worsened the condition on my chest and neck, they are way more darker than before... I have attached the picture of my chest and neck, they look ok but, the spots are killing... Please suggest/advice, its upsetting and I am loosing confidence.
Avatar m tn I have a question on some skin issues I've been having lately. Since April I've been having folliculitis on the back of my neck at the edge of my hair line. My doctor took a sample from one of the bumps and prescribed me bactrim antibiotic. It helped but once I ran out of medicine it came back. I'm on bactroban for the bumps. The next issue I'm having is dry flaky skin on my face. The dermatologist I went to sold me a face wash and moisturizer.
Avatar n tn Well what's the cause of milia and what do you do to stop and clear it? I wish my face regularly and I find these white, hard, dots on my face continue to pop up. It' on the higher portion of my cheek and around my eyes. Been getting them for years now. So how do you clear the current bunch and what measures do I take to stop them?
Avatar f tn I have read somewhere or heard, can't remember,that sometimes the treatment triggers things you have, to become worse. Does this seem to include skin problems, even if the skin problem had resolved itself years ago? I understand many people get riba rash, I not referring to that.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that. ENT Dr.
