Does home laser removal work

Common Questions and Answers about Does home laser removal work


Avatar n tn even my hubbie, he has never said anything to me about it but when we are getting it on I have to be very carfeul not to let him touch my face.. So enough is enough I am ready for laser hair removal. Does anyone know how much it might cost to have this done and how often do you have to go in for the "treatment"?
587306 tn?1218529734 There is another place in the panhandle of Florda called Microspine that also does laser spine surgery. From their website you will learn that they have a much smaller staff and therefore there is a longer wait to get into their facility. They too offer a free consult based on your MRI report. Good luck.
Avatar n tn When I stop taking the medicine over the weekend I eventually return to the acidy burning pain, cramps and diarrhea. A friend thought that I may have a bial duct injury. My surgery was the laser technique, I went home the same day and was out of work for a week. I didn't experience any symptoms until I went off of the pain medicine. Can I get help for this problem?
Avatar n tn You get 1 free appointment after surgery then he can bill for the removal and everything that he does during the extraction of the stent. I think this is a crime due to the fact he didn't even see me after the ct scan. he sent in a assistant i had never met before and she was not very knowledgeble about my case. I am very dissapointed and pissed off at the mishandling my doctor has done with me.
Avatar n tn Also used Oil of Wild Oregano, Tea Tree Oil and EmuAID Max Cream – all helped to clear the starter pimple boils, but they did not stop new ones appearing. I have since had 2 underarm laser hair removal sessions as shaving causes many starter pimple boils to appear the day after shaving.
Avatar m tn The urologist told me I was not going to have any more kidney pain after stent removal. I went home and wanted to believe him, so after a couple of hours, the pain increased almost or perhaps more than before. the pain sometimes take a long time to subside and I can relax a bit, but as soon as I urinate, the pain comes back worse than last time before.
Avatar m tn i had a laser lithrotripsy surgery last thursday 4/22 and had the stent removed monday 4/26. after it was removed i had random back spasms and STILL pain when urinating, yesterday i began having unbarable pain about 2 minutes after urinating in my bladder area and it lasts up to 2 this normal...
Avatar n tn I wont say it isnt painful because it is when you wake (although the pain killers soon sort that out) i had my catheter and drain removed on the saterday morning (operaion was thursday) and i started walking around sat the nurses also helped me to shower that day i went home sunday and over the past 2 weeks have got a bit better every day im now feeling 80% better and im pleased i had it out.
Avatar n tn Just wondering if anyone knows roughly the recovery time for a removal of a ovary, also scar tissue. I only took 1 week after my operation. i wonder how i will feel and if that is enough time. i work in a office but i have 60 stairs to climb to get to my office.
Avatar f tn after looking up various other removal procedures (such as laser) and decided to pay them a visit. The Colorectal health centre accepted my insurance (HMO) otherwise banding would be $600 per visit...first my Dr asked what problem was and I told her. She used a instrument that is like the anal speculum to look inside my anal cavity and saw that I had 3 interior hemorrhoids. I had my banding that first visit. It was painless, a lil uncomfortable but quick.
Avatar f tn I am a female who had a kidney stone removed by laser and a kidney stent put in about 2 1/2 wks ago. My life has been a nightmare ever since. My doctor has been totally useless. I was never told how painful the stent would be. I thought the stone would be removed and all would be fine. Wrong. When I was discharged from the hospital nobody gave me any info on what to except so I thought something was terribly wrong from the severe pain ect... I had the stent removed 3 days ago.
Avatar n tn At the time of the attack, I went to the ER where I had sonogram and blood work taken. However everything seemed normal. Upon leaving ER, tentatively diagnosed with Gastritis, however GI cocktail did not stop the pain. Since this time, I went to see a gasteroenterologist, he tentatively diagnosed me with gallbladder problems and ordered a CCK HIDA scan. The HIDA scan an revealed a gallbladder ejection fraction of 22%.
Avatar n tn He did mention that because I have no gallbladder, that perhaps excess bile is backing up into my stomach. Does anyone else know what I am going through? Is there a speical diet I should consider to help myself?
3119293 tn?1342054132 i started mountain biking again, (popped pills before and after) felt great... went to work popped 2x AT work!! now I am tired of it. I am going to the Laser Spine Institute soon and get rid of this issue.

Avatar n tn Hey girl. I'm 18 and have had the same problems you have since I was 12 or so. Words of advice: Do not shave! I did when I was 13 and have regret it ever since. Its gotten so bad I'm looking at laser hair removal. As for the stretch marks I have then and so does my sister. I'm 5'7" and she's 5'11" (but she's only 16.) She had very dark deep red/pink scars on her sides and legs and mine were similar.
485259 tn?1519050626 they stopped the pain meds the day before I went home and I did not use the prescribed narcotics at home... (I don't like the way I feel on those anyway) I was able to use extra strength Tylenol to keep the edge off... but make sure to have stool softeners and... If you don't like prunes, I suggest pears... they worked for me and was always my grandma's remedy for such things... I also ate a lot of green grapes, cantaloupe and pineapple when I got home from the hospital.
Avatar f tn Do not do a gall bladder flush! It does not work! It is nothing but "snake oil". I tried this myself except using a lemon juice and distilled water mixture (lemonade no sugar). This was a one day fast where you had 2 slices of whole wheat toast in the morning and then nothing but the "lemonade" the rest of the day. At the end you take an herbal laxative and then you drink straight lemon juice then straight olive oil.
162948 tn?1205256292 , being that it was red not brown, bled for five days then nothing for about 9 days later then got normal egg white discharge no blod with it which would say im ovulating followed by slight uncomfortable cramps where my ovaries would be and light back pain i am still waiting for another bleed if it does not come in another 2-3 weeks im going to give myself a home test just to check if i have not fallen already
Avatar n tn I am going to see Dr. Jacob Young in Bellevue. He does practice at VM, though. If he doesn't work out, I will check out the others you have recommeneded. Thank you, Shane.
Avatar n tn I have considered the option of laser treatment but it is way too expensive. I hav tried creams but nothing seems to work. Because of this problem I have not worn shorts in the public for years becasue I am highly embarassed with the state of my legs. I desparately need some advise on what I can do because I am looking forward to summer next year and also to visit my home country for Carnival celebrations next year. Please, Please help me.
Avatar f tn The Weiss ring that occurs after a PVD is usually the type the responds the best. You can read about this on the websites about laser floater removal. I have met two of the doctors in the U.S. that do this procedure. I spent several hours in the office talking with the doctor in Virginia and the one in California. They will call you personally to answer your questions. I trust that they know what they are doing. I believe the procedure is very, very safe.
Avatar m tn Scraping or curettage Freezing (cryotherapy) Laser therapy. There are a few treatment options that can be done at home. Betadine surgical scrub can be gently scrubbed on the infected area for 5 minutes daily until the lesions resolve (this is not recommended for those allergic to iodine or betadine). However, the ability of iodine to penetrate intact skin is poor, and without a pin ***** or needle stick into each molluscum lesion this method does not work well. Do not use on broken skin.
377493 tn?1356505749 My mom is going to come for 2 weeks to help me out, help with Ryder, etc., and of course Warren is home after work and weekends. What is bothering me is that my OB/GYN told me intercourse will likely be too painful for at least 3 MONTHS! Warren and I are big kids, and again not a big deal except it means putting off ttc. I don't want to do that. They told me that the aftermath will feel much like a very bad burn, and I will require pain killers.
2175150 tn?1337463379 I went to the ER on April 29th, was given a CT scan that found a 5x7mm stone in my right kidney. They sent me home with pain meds and scheduled me for a ureteroscopy laser lithotrispy 4 days from then which was May 1st. I spent that weekend in a lot of pain but nothing could compare to the pain I was going to experience after the surgery and stent placement. I was given more pain meds and sent home.
Avatar f tn I recover slowly, and I needed 2 1/2 weeks of mostly bed rest. I had to be face down about 5 days. I don't work outside of my home, but the doctor told me a 2 week recovery. Please ask your doctor what your vision prognosis is, when you are ready for this discussion. Ask him to give you the odds, based on his experience and the research. He could say something now, and as you progress in the months leading up to the removal. My doctor told me nothing and I kept imagining the worst.
Avatar n tn Hi I had 2 surgeries to remove hemorroid, i was constantly constipated and after my first baby i had the rubber band done 3 times IT DOES NOT WORK WAIST OF TIME AND ENERGY..then I had my first surgery and I think the Doc did a bad job (half fast) I went home and imedialy saw that it was 2 balls hanging outside my anus when they were not there before.. so the next visit the doc said "WOW we will have to do it again it still there " (hellow he knew he did a mistake).
Avatar n tn The removal of the endometriosis adhesions, also called endometrial implants, is usually done with the laser. The removal of each adhesion leaves a 'raw' spot the size of that particular implant. I had a terrible case of the disease; when my doctor finished removing as much of it as she could, there were raw spots, small and large, all over my abdomen.
Avatar f tn One up at the lake, and one in my pasture. I keep thinking or seeing my horse taking me home and then falling in the pasture. My brother says I was out cold for quite awhile. He did nothing. I guess he didn't know what to do. Anyway some years later more memories came back about up at the lake. I thought they were nightmares, but turns out it was related, and even though I know certain things that went on up there..I can't seem to say them outloud, because its like out of a horror movie.
Avatar n tn We are limited to what kind on topical sollutions we can use. Does anyone have any home remedies or solutions to help relieve his itching? A day does not go by that he does not complain about it hurting.HELP!!!!
Avatar f tn My urlogist said that from looking at my CT that this stone did not appear to be very dense and that he would most likely have to laser it to break it up rather than be able to just grab it with a basket. Once he got in, he found that the stone appeared to have already broken into two smaller fragments but that due to the amount of swelling and scar tissue, he was unable to remove the stone.
