Treatments to Eliminate Acne Scars

1. Biostimulation with platelet-rich plasma is another acne scar removal technology that helps the patient’s blood to enhance the production of elastin, collagen and improves the healing process. It controls severe acne in youth or adults. The platelet-rich plasma favors the synthesis of collagen, which is the most damaged molecule in any scar. In the case of atrophic acne scars, it allows the dermis to increase its thickness and partially fill the loss of substance from the depression.

2. PRP is a natural substance that comes from the patient’s own blood, so it is impossible for a foreign body rejection reaction to occur with other materials such as fillers (this is now exceptional). Also, the technique is simpler than in the case of fillers, since the PRP is injected by micro punctures following a grid pattern so that the possibility of occlusion of a blood vessel does not exist. Likewise, the probability of injuring a nerve fiber or causing an infection is practically nonexistent. In conclusion, although the probabilities of complications in the use of fillings are minimal, with the PRP are almost nil.

3. Some lesions are susceptible to the application of fillers with hyaluronic

Skin Care Guide for Men

### Liquids
The reason you’re feeling so groggy first thing in the morning is that your body is trying to flush out that half a keg of beer you triumphantly managed to get down your gullet – and your body needs 8 parts of water for every 1 part of alcohol to do this successfully.

Whilst on your night out try and alternate every 2 beers / drinks with a tall glass of water (either still or sparkling will do) this will lessen the severity the ‘morning after’ plus it will help flush out the alcohol and any other toxins. First thing in the morning try and drink a sports drink, preferably one that contains electrolytes as this will both quench your thirst and replenish lost nutrients.

** TIP **
Substitute caffeine (i.e. coffee and energy drinks) with pure apple or cranberry juice. Coffee is a diuretic and will, albeit give you a short lived boost, have you visiting the bathroom (and losing liquids) more often than both your Grandparents combined.

### Hydrating Clay Mask
To regain vital moisture and nutrients lost, plus get back that fresh looking face – use a clay based facial

Tips to Keep your Skin Protected From The Sun

One of the main causes of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV rays). These rays are invisible, and are produced by the sun. Most often skin cancer is the result of overexposing your skin to the sun. UV rays cause this skin cancer because they create changes in the skin cells; tans and sunburns are direct examples of this. Most cases of skin cancer are preventable, and you can reduce the risk of yourself getting skin cancer by taking some simple yet extremely important steps. Select shaded areas for outdoor activities; wear clothing that will cover up your arms and legs; or apply sunblock to the areas of your skin that might be exposed to the sun.

If you are not sure what coverage to use, for example sunblock or protective clothing, it is best to go with the latter. Wearing protective clothing is one of the most effective ways to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Unlike sunscreen, protective clothing can give you continuous protection throughout the day, and you don’t have to deal with the oiliness that sunblocks and sunscreens leave behind on your skin. There are special companies, like

Keep Your Skin Healthy

The skin is the body’s largest organ, wrapped around our structural frame it consists of 800,000,000 cells. The skin has a thickness of 1.27 mm (one-twentieth of an inch) and weighing two and a half kilograms (six pounds)

This thin covering protects us from the elements, controlling heat and cold and offering a sensor for pain and pressure. The most important role of the skin is that of elmination. It is through the skin that impurities and metabolic waste from the body is eliminated (about a half a pound a day.)

It is important to realize that the skin not only expels toxins but is also sensitive to substances that are placed on the skin. On average (depending upon the substance ) the skin will absorb approximately 60% of what is applied to it.

This means that through the skin, absorption will occur in the blood, tissues and cells of the skin to circulate through the blood to all cells and tissues of the body.

Many prescription drugs are applied this way, for example, skin patches for estrogen and progesterone ( hormone regulation.) Because so many cosmetic products are chemical loaded, skin creams, insect

SPF Mean with Sun Block

Skin cancer is by far the most common form of cancer suffered by people. This is maddening to many medical professionals because preventing skin cancer is not only possible, it is simple. When you are going to be outside for a significant amount of time, you should wear sun screen or sun block. For those of us who don’t have nearly as much hair as we used to and would like to have, a hat is advisable as well.

As you might know, not all sun protection is created equally. There are a number of factors that go into how much protection it provides you. The first is time. If the block is only good for one hour, you need to re-apply it accordingly. The second factor is the SPF of the product in question.

So, what is SPF? SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. You might have been expecting something more scientific, but there you are. SPF comes in different levels designated by a numeric system. Generally, anything under SPF 15 isn’t really worth buying because it provides minimal protection at best. SPF of 15 up through the high twenties provides a better shield against

How to Look Stunning in Your 50s

4. Work it overnight. Night time is the best to combat wrinkles and loss of tone and moisture. Invest in a good night cream, applied after cleansing and toning, to promote regeneration.

5. Challenge yourself. Just like Madonna, always think of ways to reinvent yourself. Start from the inside and it will flow outward. It’s not too late to try a new exercise, a new spiritual path, anything that will stop you from falling into

Dermatitis-prone Skin Care Tips

In the medical field, the term dermatitis is often used to refer to any inflammation or swelling of the skin and is sometimes used interchangeably with the term “eczema”. This skin condition is usually characterized by unbearable itching. For those afflicted with dermatitis, scratching serves as the main and perhaps the only, source of relief. It is said that the itching only gets much worse as the condition progresses that you cannot help but scratch the affected areas even more.

However, scratching only tends to worsen the condition. While it may bring temporary relief, it may also irritate your skin and lead to the formation of tiny oozing bumps. And it does not end there. As long as you are afflicted with the condition, your skin will continue to itch and you may also continue to resort to scratching. This invariably leads to infection.

To treat this kind of skin problem, you need to know what is causing it. Most of the time however, a person afflicted with dermatitis doesn’t even know what is setting it off! But no matter what might be triggering the condition, there are some general strategies that can bring you the

Tips to Determine Your Skin Type

Skin types according the medical point of view are classified into three basic types”You may have a combination of them such as normal to oily, or normal to dry”:
1- Oily Type.
2- Normal Type.

Each of these types has its own products to take care of it.

Let’s break it down. Each skin type is characterized by different things such as texture, oil production, and frequency of breakouts.

People with dry skin do not suffer many breakouts, and rarely ever have blackheads. This is because oil promotes breakouts by closing pores and blackheads are caused by the increase of oil production from the Sebum glands”Glands in the skin that produces an oily material called Sebum”. If your skin is dry, you are not producing very much oil, therefore, you aren’t prone to as many episodes.

If you have a dry skin your skin may have nearly visible pores, and you may feel dry and tight after washing. Most people with dry skin are fair skinned, and often develop facial lines earlier in life. This skin type also burns easily.

People with normal skin occasionally suffer form breakouts, and can have
