Laser acne scar removal side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Laser acne scar removal side effects


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 m tn Hello, There are many procedures of mole removal like by shave or deep elliptical excision, excision with cauterization (a tool is used to burn away the mole) and laser removal. Your dermatologist may choose excision with or without stitches, depending on the depth of the mole and the type of cosmetic outcome desired. Laser removal has less chances of leaving scars but it is also not without side effects. Discuss the details of these procedures with your dermatologist.
2135371 tn?1335886585 Is it the right time to have an acne treatment like laser scar removal? Anything I 've tried since now had no result on my scars and marks. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn I'm waiting for more side effects from not taking the pill - no acne yet (thankfully) and no weight gain...I thought you lose weight when stopping the pill...
Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.
948349 tn?1294383837 Accutane is however by far the WORST thing someone can use to treat acne... and may have devastating effects on other organs in the body, particularly the liver. The apparent effect of accutane is that it works to 'shrink' the sebaceous glands. Best of luck... I'm trying to get this information out there to people, but so far no one is really paying much attention. Any more comments? I appreciate so much if people can comment more on my post.
485259 tn?1519050626 The first few days getting up and down off the bed can be hard, if you have someone pull you straight up and then swing your legs to the side of the bed to stand from a sitting position it's better than twisting off, at least it was for me. When your in the hospital after the surgery, doctors will come and talk to you and tell you things you should remember, I didn't because I was too groggy from the anesthesia, so if you can have someone there to write stuff down it helps.
162948 tn?1205256292 I HATE Mirena! I must be the "rare" side effects group expect now I'm finding tons of people like me. After insertion, I bled for the first THREE months straight, which after a month I called the doctor and he said it sometimes happens. From then on it's been an on going mess. I will have a period then not again for a month or two, then twice in one month! I have to carry supplies with me all the time.
Avatar n tn But I too cannot wait till I can afford laser hair removal.
Avatar n tn I was very self conscious about it growing up- for I couldn't find anything about girls with nipple hair. I actually had laser hair removal when I was 16, but it has all grown back which is unfortunate because it cost a lot! I still pluck when their long enough, but they do become ingrown and I end up having some scarring as well. My boyfriend never even noticed when we first got together, I couldn't believe it. It goes to show that men miss detail. It was a huge relief for me.
Avatar f tn I'll give you a diagnosis right now. It's RINGWORM. I had the same exact thing for 8-9 months before I realized what it was. Cleared up after just 4 days of over the counter clotrimazole 1% cream.Turns out I also have tinea corporis with the typical rings that were really really faint in color so i didn't recognize it. I'd been really itchy all over my torso since about the time these painful boils started popping up over my face. The funny thing is that the boils didn't really itch.
Avatar m tn Hello, What you seem to be having are side effects of this drug. Please consult your dermatologist immediately to review the drug and shift to some other alternative or get the dose decreased. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn My mother hates alchol and people who use it, which in my extended family on my dads side, my moms side are dead or non existent, all drink daily multiple times, and take pills with them, such as Valium, Vicoden, Darvocet, Neurontin and etc. My mom and dad have no smoked pot, so they claim and never drink or claim to have ever been even intoxicated. So for there son to be a junkie, they had no clue what to do with me or a clue on what i was going through.
Avatar n tn I found another doctor I heard about from a friend who did a laser removal treatment of flat warts and made an apt (I had to wait 6 months to be seen)- I wanted to go to an insane asylum because I could not handle the pain, inconvenience, and the alarming growth rate literally over night. My mother took me to Feel-Rite (an organic and natural health and vitamin store).
Avatar n tn Specifically, find a dr that knows what it is. Don't wear tight clothes, get laser hair removal, stop smoking, lose weight, don't overdose on chocolates. For me it is like having zits in a gross place, but the scars don't go away. For some it is much more debilitating. Knock on wood. I don't know if I spelled it correctly but google will help. It ***** and the more of us the dr's know about, the less they will ignore, incorrectly diagnose, and fail to find cures for!
Avatar f tn I found a book online called The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis Its a medical book for sale and you can only see a couple pages, but from the index there was a whole chapter on plate removal due to immunologic response. Also.... Allergic reactions to metal implants: Influence of wear debris Properties of implant materials and particles.
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar n tn I had one laser treatment but it was a freebie and did nothing (SmartXide Dot laser) I've done all this for well over a year and NOTHING has improved. I look like a 40-year-old with an 80-year-old's arms. I live in Canada, so have more opportunity to cover my arms than someone living in Florida and cover them I do. I am embarrassed by them. I feel shocked when I look in the mirror. So ladies, I empathize fully. If I find a solution, I will post for you all.
Avatar n tn I am interested to find out how the medication is working from the womon who posted about it. Are there any side effects ect.. My OBGYN said that for some women the can go intravaginally and cauterise the remaining tissue, but for some reason it isn't and option for me. My family doctor advised me against having my cervix removed. He said it often results in poor bladder control( which I have presently anyhow) and that many women end up needing bladder surgey in the future to correct it.
Avatar n tn Oh, and every new DR that sees the scar from the bartholin's gland removal says that there is no way someone removed my bartholins gland based on where the scar is. OH, the scar is terrible. It is an elongated scar that is hard to the touch in some spots and still soft in others. It feels like there is still fluid it it. I can not find a Dr. that will do a darn thing to find out what these things are and how to fix them. I find it hard to believe that any Dr.
Avatar n tn Most docs say there are really no side effects to the pill, but anyone in my shoes would beg to differ. I am curious how many other women are experiencing endo/pcos after going off the pill?
Avatar m tn Steroid nasal sprays can also be prescribed, but the medical community is unsure of the possible side-effects of long-term use of steroid nasal sprays. Antihistamines and decongestants may help relieve some of the symptoms, but just a little bit. These drugs can also make your problem worse, by making the mucus even thicker in your head. If the antibiotics and other treatments aren’t effective, then surgery is sometimes recommended.
Avatar f tn Me too I have internal shaking all over my body. It all started 7 months ago. I had one or 2 night internal shaking per week at first and I thought, I was dreaming about this shaking. And then, I had more frequent shaking during the night and I couldn't sleep. It keep going worst as now it is each night and it does it now during the day. Sort of speak it is 24/7 a day... with few moments being free of this internal shaking, vibration sensation. I am so tired of it.
298579 tn?1192250448 It's somewhat painful but definitely more on the uncomfortable side. Occasionally I will also feel the cramping when I get sexually excited. It doesn't last for too long, a few minutes at most but I was curious if anyone else had experienced something like this. Thank you for your feedback.
Avatar n tn and to make it worse alot of the medications for those problems have some kind or other sulfate-ish ingredient in them. Sorry guys cheer up everything will be ok. Look at the bright side at least you will smell good! Oh and this, what im about to tell you, i think is the worst part of being allergic to sulfate. So, i live in a big city in Florida thats always cutting corners to save money, called Jacksonville. I have only been here for a little over three years.
Avatar n tn I have had 5 miscarriages and 1 ectopic. I too was diagnosed with PCOS after other tests were done. I was on Metformin and Clomid. On the 2nd round of Clomid, I became pregnant. I have a 4yr old son and also a 20 month old. I only used the clomid and metformin for my son. The doctor said I would need the medicine to get pregnant again. Not so!!! God blessed me with a beautiful little girl also. Keep all in prayer. Remember even though we do not understand, He does!!!
Avatar n tn This relaxes smooth muscle in the bronchi in the lung, has a rapid onset of action, and is rarely associated with significant side effects at normal doses. The muscle in the lower bowel is similar smooth muscle. A recent German study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology involved a double-blind cross-over trial to evaluate the efficacy of inhaled salbutamol and the duration of symptoms in patients with proctalgia fugax.
