Common Questions and Answers about Laser skin houston


Avatar n tn I have skin discoloration from bruise, insect bites,cut or burn after healing it leaves a spot that never goes away. I am 39 years and I have had this problem since I was teenager. I use bleaching creams for a period of two weeks or less as long there is no sign of improvement I discontinue.
Avatar n tn Hi Ingrown hairs may recur. As the hair grows, the sharp tips bend and irritate the skin. It may be very discomforting. If these seem to recur, I would suggest that you inquire about the benefits of laser hair removal from your dermatologist. This may be more expensive and may even require repeated sessions but the procedure may be more effective as it stops hair growth.
Avatar m tn You can deal with them using abdominal lifting, i.e. surgical stretching of the skin and removal of excess. Body Contouring Houston is not a way to become obese. It works best for people with a slight overweight who cannot cope with fat on the stomach. Abdominal liposuction helps to shape your figure - but it will not change her drastically. Liposuction of the abdomen - contraindications Abdominal liposuction cannot be performed in a few cases.
Avatar n tn On my first visit there I had a consultation with a lady that does the laser treatments in the spa. I informed her that I was currently using the Yag laser for hair removal somewhere else, and was looking for something that would keep me hair free longer than a month, so I would not have to get a laser treatment every single month.
Avatar n tn I've never heard of it preventing loose skin. The only thing I thought could get rid of loose skin was surgery. I've read that a good way to help prevent loose skin was drinking plenty of water while you're dieting. But obviously, if one has a LOT of weight to lose, you're most likely going to have some loose skin no matter what. Think of it this way: All that skin had to stretch and grow to cover the fat. Once the fat is gone, the skin doesn't usually shrink that much. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Low ABS Neutrophils (help with Neupogen), also was diagnosed with minor Vitiligo (slight loss of skin pigmentation in a couple of areas) this is an autoimmune problem which I hope will stop after treatment, and my doctors also seem to think that it will. If any of you newbies have any questions, feel free to ask. I put of Tx for 10 years because of fear of Sx and happy that I finally went ahead with it. Now I have to wait and see what the future holds.
Avatar n tn In addition, spongiotic dermatitis can also be contracted at a relatively young age and in babies it takes the form of a diaper rash and as far as gender distribution is concerned, men are thrice as likely to get it as compared to women, and the problem will cause an itching in your skin that can even turn into a rash.
Avatar n tn She has also had an Accent treatment (some kind of laser I think??) for skin tightening, which also helps. I had the procedure done on my inner thighs 5 days ago. The first day after the shots, I was REALLY swollen... not really too sore, but just swollen. The second day, I was less swollen and even went shopping for a couple of hours. Yesterday (day 3) I went to work, and had no problem. Today, the swelling is a little less, but still not back to 100% normal.
Avatar m tn Please specify whether you got a monofocal or multifocal/accommodative IOL. I would like to know what distances you are able to see clearly. What distances are slightly blurry, but acceptable, and what distances are just unbearably blurry. I am particularly interested in those who have received Monofocal IOL set to Distance but I would also really appreciate hearing those experiences with different IOLs.
Avatar n tn As for other procedures, I have some sunspots on my face that oxygen isn't burning off so I'm sorta considering the various options for face skin. I look forward to hearing people's stories. BTW, does anyone know a 'non-responder' where it didn't work??
948349 tn?1294383837 I would always touch myself and I couldn't believe how oily my skin would be. My skin is not oily anymore! It just looks like healthy skin! The root of the problem??? Is the oil... the bacteria thrive on the oily skin, the oily skin is some acne sufferers response to a lack of vitamin D... probably trying to make the precursor to vitamin D in the skin so it can be turned to vitamin D in the liver. But what happens when you have sufficient levels of vitamin D???
Avatar m tn I have what doctors believe is ACA, a late manifestation of late Lyme Disease. My skin is atrophying and I don't know if it will ever stop, based on what I have read. Has anyone had this before and stopped the progression through antibiotics or other means? It is all over my body and getting worse. I'm in a panic as no one in the U.S. seems to know what to do. I've read so much of the same information.
Avatar f tn I was contimplating getting mesotherapy but found out it only takes out wrinkles and lumps from the surface of the skin and doesn't last. I decided on Lipodissolve because it goes deeper into the actual fat cells layer and dissolves the fat forever. The nurses give you about 12 shots 6 on each side of your belly. The shots don't hurt at all. But for about 1.5 hours or so you feel a burning sensation where they did the injections. Its not that bad.
233488 tn?1310696703 surgical or laser corneal relaxing incisions; toric IOLs or toric mutifocal IOLs; rounding the cornea at time of surgery with brand new (2013) femtosecond laser; post operatively using lasik surgery to remove residual astigmatism. 9.

163305 tn?1333672171 I have shopped for hep docs in Houston since the early 1990's and have met many of them for consults over the years. Here's who no one should consider doing TX with (I did) or have your liver BX with, Dr. G at Texas Liver Specialists. If anyone is considering him or is already a pt of his, you can PM me if you're interested in knowing more. The best hep docs in Houston seem to all be at the Baylor College of Medicine.
Avatar n tn (In fact, I may try swimming in a cholorinated pool next week and hopefully that won't set my skin back three monts LOL) Anyway...getting back to my old life, sports, sunshine etc, -- that's where laser (IPL) should help by getting rid of veins and cappilaries that cause flushing. I still will give things more time but may go the IPL or laser route this winter. Still haven't "tested" the sun since the last time I did two months ago was pretty bad. Maybe next Spring after IPL.
Avatar f tn What I realized Friday night is that since I have started LD I have been suffering from random breakouts of hives. I have sensitive skin, and I am allergic to a couple meds so I've had hives before, but usually you know right away what you did differently to cause them. This time I couldn't figure out what was breaking me out. I missed 2-1/2 days of work, had medical expenses, and took I don't know how much Benedryl for these crazy breakouts.
Avatar n tn I stopped the shots 3 weeks ago and increased my calorie intake to about 1500 cal/day so that I can coast for a month mostly to give my body and skin a chance to adjust. I've seen people get that loose skin thing from losing to much weight to fast and there doesn't seem to be much to do about it except cosmetic surgery??? I also need a break from the cost of the program but will start up again in a month or two.
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar n tn Vulvar Dystrophy A vulvar dystrophy is abnormal skin on the vulva. The skin can be too thin (lichen sclerosus), too thick (hyperplasia), or a mixture of both." I am obviously not a doctor and am in no way diagnosing any conditions, but maybe you could research these further and seek out a dermatologist or a gynecologist with some experience in this area.
Avatar n tn also, my tummy is the thickest, but i have a lot of damage from an emergency c-section...and saggy skin. i'm wondering if it would be worth it there...the skin won't 'go back'. i'm in the kc area and have a great doc. is it okay to say the doc's name here?
Avatar n tn Honestly, there are many people who have this problem and if your skin is as light as mine, unfortunately it is far more noticeable. The only thing I can tell you is, if you know when it will show up then wear a turtle neck that day. My daughter has to do presentations with the type of job she has and that is what she does and just laughs it off if someone mentions it. It's kind of like having "white coat syndrome" except it shows up in your neck and chest.
Avatar f tn What's more, I did not have the hallmarks of either Scleroderma or Lupus (no hard skin, no mylar rash, no photo-sensitivity). Things did not quite fit together in my head or in my heart. I was praying a lot for direction (and because I felt so bad) and I started to research what other things might be caused by my "very specific" Nucleolar pattern.
Avatar f tn When I got pregnant it really got big and filled with milk my doctor said it was breaast tissue that traveled into my armpit and that as long as it didn't hurt it really wasn't anything to worry about. It just looks like extra baggy skin and as a result I can't wear sleeveless tops. I've never known anyone else who has this to ask what they think or feel. My husband thinks if it bothers me so much I shyould have it removed. I am scared and want to know what the health risks are.
Avatar n tn I had both ovaries removed Dec 18th by laproscopy and I feel pretty good, but my belly button incision seems to be open, like the stitch dissolved before the skin closed over complete. There is no pus, no fever, no pain, no redness other than the general scar area. The hole is about 1/4 inch in diameter, but I'm still a little concerned about having a hole in my belly! Of course, both my GP and OBGYN are closed for the holidays so I called the hospital that did my surgery.
Avatar n tn I know when it's going to happen - can feel pressure, then it pops and you see blood under the skin and then it itches like crazy. Sometimes it's a hard blue marble under the skin. I have 3 that are permanently there (two in the same finger). It's almost never caused by anything - just happens. Occasionally it's when I grip something.
Avatar n tn it has been 6 weeks since my tkr, i suppose im doing ok, but my skin around the scar is so sensative, i cant stand a duvet on it at night, and a skirt swishing around on it is awful, it feels burned, but its not red, i cant see anything wrong, but its driving me mad, has anyone else had this problem.
