Dermabrasion Can Give You Smoother Skin

By Lim Zheng Yang

There are many ways out in the market for people to make their skin more youthful. Some people want to remove fine lines and wrinkles from their faces.

Others may want to get rid of long term acne scars that has left their faces disfigured for many years.

Whatever the reason, dermabrasion is definitely one viable option that these people can take to achieve the desired results. Especially when new skin re-surfacing technology may not be suitable for some patients or are too costly for most people, many patients, and even doctors still stick to dermabrasion.

During dermabrasion, the top layer of skin is being buffed away to allow the lower layers of skin cells to form.

The new layers of skin replaces the skin cells that were buffed away, thereby giving the skin a smoother appearance.

Initially, the area under treatment might look pinkish, but this is only temporary. Within a week or two, patients would have recovered, and their skin becomes smoother.

It is important that the patient wears a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 to avoid sun damage on the new layer of skin.

Dermabrasion is good for deep layers of scarring, especially when other technology cannot do the job.

Lim Zheng Yang used to suffer from acne and has spent countless hours researching on this skin condition and the best ways to treat it. You can read more about his works at his main site about dermabrasion and his blog for other dermabrasion information.

Dermabrasion Crystals

By Richard Romando

By definition, dermabrasion crystals are used by dermatologists, physicians, spas and salons to clean out the skin off dead cells. Sometimes called micro-dermabrasion crystals, these tiny granules of about standard sizes in grits of 90, 100, 120 or fine 180, are manufactured according to strict standards of health and safety. These dermabrasion crystals are attached or lodged on equipment used to treat patients.

A lot of providers of dermabrasion crystals get their supply from industrial mineral processors. The mineral crystals are modified to qualify as dermabrasion crystals. The crystals are usually made from white aluminum oxide. The highest quality of dermabrasion crystals achieves 99.6 percent clarity. The crystal must not keep dust particles to avoid clogging the equipment used in dermabrasion processes.

If you are looking for reliable sources of dermabrasion crystals, or if you need to them in bulk, check out several online stores offering these products. You may want to browse through several sites to compare prices and services to get the best deal. Watch also for proper accreditation and quality checks on the product. The dermabrasion crystals you buy must be suited for dermatatological and clinical use.

Most good quality dermabrasion crystals cost $2.25 per pound. This may already include shipment and packaging costs. If bought at wholesale, the cost may go down. The supplier can arrange for convenient packaging of the crystals and shipment to your address. The dermabrasion crystals can be packed in any of the following containers available to the customer. Standard jars carry around two or four pounds and up to twelve and a half pounds of these crystals. The product can also come in standard pails that can accommodate 25 to 50 pounds of crystal per shipment. Large drums can contain up to 400 pounds. For bigger orders that reach 2,200 pounds, bulk bags are used.

Micro Dermabrasion - Hurting Skin to Heal it?

By Peter Crump

Acne is an upsetting condition that can be sometimes very difficult to clear, its treatment usually involving the application to the skin of a multitude of cleansers and other potions in a long process of trial and error that can be extremely frustrating for the patient. Clear skin, when it is finally achieved, is thus a thing to be cherished by most former sufferers, and most certainly not something to be taken lightly. So while there is little doubt that recovered acne patients will view their often scarred skin with disappointment, many are unwilling to risk its hard won clarity by trying scar reducing techniques, such as micro dermabrasion, chemical peels or laser treatment. And while medical advances are improving these techniques all the time – micro dermabrasion, for example, was developed as a gentler form of more traditional dermabrasion – those with delicate skin would be wise to carefully weigh up the possible advantages of receiving treatment with the possible risks.

Many former acne patients value the current health of their skin so highly that they do not wish to compromise it by engaging in a treatment that might improve the look of their skin further for fear that they might find themselves plummeting back to the bad old days. Acne is a condition that can be painful both physically and psychologically, resulting in scars to self-esteem and confidence as well as to the skin, and is something that no recovered sufferer wishes to revisit. But while it is understandable that patients wish to preserve the clarity of their skin, the fear that micro dermabrasion, for instance, will result in a resurgence of acne is unfounded. Acne is caused specifically by the body’s overproduction of sebum, and this is not something that dermabrasion machines will induce.

But micro dermabrasion is not foolproof, and can give poor results. Though this treatment is gentler than the use of dermabrasion machines, which require the use of local anaesthetics and can leave skin quite raw, it can sometimes yield disappointing results. These kinds of treatments are also expensive, an important aspect to the patient who has probably already spend large sums of money on curing their acne problem. Many patients prefer to use home dermabrasion kits, which are not only cheaper, but leave the patient in control of their treatment. This can be an ideal way to try out this type of treatment, to better decide whether it is appropriate for them.

Dermabrasion Information

By Alan Hood

Dermabrasion is the medical terminology for a “sanding-like” exfoliation of the skin via a specialized rotary device.

Length and details of the Dermabrasion procedure

In the Dermabrasion procedure a mechanical scraping of the top layers of skin occurs which results in the softening of your skin jagged edges or irregularities in its surface texture. Dermabrasion is sought after for its ability to aid in reducing the surface damaged caused by acne, facial scars, fine or emerging wrinkles.

The length of the Dermabrasion procedure varies from several minutes to

less than an hour depending on the individuals needs. Many professionals recommend spreading the procedure of several sessions of shorter durations.

To minimize on discomfort a local anesthetic is employed, which may include a numbing spray.

As this procedure is not considered surgery, almost all procedures are performed as an outpatient procedure.

Risks and/or complications related to Dermabrasion

As Dermabrasion does refer to the abrasive removal of the skins surface some side affects will be experienced after the procedure. Possible side effects include tingling, burning, itching, swelling, redness, all usually temporary in their impact. Some individuals will experience a lightening of the skin, which can result in sensitivity to sun and the loss of ability to tan. Patients are advised to wear hypoallergenic make up after Dermabrasion has been performed.

In addition there are other associated risks with this procedure that include the chance abnormal skin color changes which can of the permanent nature. Other risks include infection, scarring, fever blisters, and cold sores.

For most patients the recovery time needed should be approximately 2 weeks.

Most individuals should be able to return to work after this period if not sooner. For more involved procedures the recovery time may extend to between 4 to 6 weeks.

Other cosmetic aspects of the surgery will take slightly longer with the eventual fading of skin redness taking approximately 3 months. Those experiencing a lightening of the skin will see a return of pigmentation and greater

tolerance to sun exposure in 6 to 12 months.

Long-term results of Dermabrasion

The skin reshaping aspects of the Dermabrasion procedure are permanent in their results.

How much does Dermabrasion cost?

Costs vary but tend to center around an average about $150 per treatment.

Will my insurance cover Dermabrasion?

For the most part procedures that are performed for purely cosmetic reasons are not covered by most health insurance policies. However some costs may be covered if there is a medical necessary behind the procedure. As always consult with your physician and health insurance plan.

A New Skin with Dermabrasion?

By Chris Donovan

The great range of medical procedures that can be found and applied today is impressive, without any doubt. All types of methods, treatments and surgical procedures that are meant to make us look better and, eventually feel better about ourselves sound very tempting. We can get a new face, we can get a new body and we can even get a new skin. An Improved skin, a better looking skin – this is precisely what the dermabrasion procedure offers.

But is it really that easy? What does the dermabrasion procedure imply? Is there any pain, any risks? And how effective are the actual results of dermabrasion? Let’s take things slowly. For starters, dermabrasion is not an easy procedure, or, clearer said, it is an actual cosmetic/surgical procedure applied to the skin and that requires a general anesthetic. The reason for this type of anesthesia is that dermabrasion is a very painful procedure. Dermabrasion implies the use of a surgical sander that helps in removing the surface skin layer and this precisely what makes dermabrasion that painful.

Furthermore, even though a general anesthetic is used, the patient needs to remain remotely conscious during the dermabrasion procedure. In the recent years, the sander has been replaced with certain lasers, which present some advantages, including the fact that the patient does not bleed during the dermabrasion procedure.

But what is dermabrasion used for? Dermabrasion is used for a wide range of skin and aging problems, such as deep wrinkles (especially the ones located above the upper lip), scars (mainly relief scars and not deep scars) and acne effects. In some cases, the patients need more than one dermabrasion treatment in order to get the results their desire. More pain, more money, but the numerous individuals who are interested in the dermabrasion procedure seem to believe it is worth it. Sure, just like any medical procedure of this type, dermabrasion might present some complications and negative effects, such as irritations and infections, as well as scaring, in case the abrasion is too aggressive.

One of the most unpleasant aspects that occur when opting for dermabrasion is the long recovery. Basically, the patient does not get the expected results right away – what he/she gets is a raw and red aspect of the face - but only several months after the dermabrasion procedure. Only then, the skin gets its tight, smooth and glowing look that the patient desires. In the meantime, the patient needs to avoid sun and to respect a great number of indications in order to avoid complications and to heal properly. Even though the great results in removing scars and marks seem to be sufficient enough when considering dermabrasion, the adjacent effects must be considered, as well, in order to make a responsible and fully informed decision.

Dermabrasion For Skin Rejuvenation

By Tom Disouza

If you are searching for solutions for your acne scars for a long time, dermabrasion is the perfect answer for removing your acne scars. Dermabrasion is an ablative surgery procedure, which physically abrades the epidermis and dermis of your skin in a controlled fashion using a fine wire brush or a diamond fraise. Besides using the dermabrasion technique for your scars you can also go for it for removing your facial rhytids and for treating various other skin conditions troubling you. The ablation in a dermabrasion rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the production of new layers of skin.

As a surgery procedure dernabrasion needs a lot of care before and after. Preparing for dermabrasion surgery is as important as the actual surgery itself.

Preparing the skin before the procedure

Preparation for dermabrasion includes the application of ointments such as Retin-A to be applied to the area every night before going to bed. In case you are prone to cold sores, the doctor may prescribe you a course of antiviral pills a few days before the dermabrasion surgery. You should not be taking Accutane for the past eighteen months, if you have so you will not be considered for the procedure. Similarly, dermabrasion cannot be performed for a minimum of 6 months, preferably up to 1 year, after taking oral isotretinoin. Its use needs to be stopped well before the surgery.

You need to tell your cosmetic surgeon about any herbal supplements that you may be taking as some of these supplements may interfere with anesthesia and cause problems during the surgery because of their blood thinning properties. Even some over-the-counter vitamins can be hazardous to you, for example vitamin E, which reduces your body’s ability to clot blood. Similarly, you may have to discontinue the use of anti-depressants.

Just before the dermabrasion is performed for acne scars under anesthesia, your skin will be pretreated with an ice pack for 20 to 30 minutes and sprayed with the a liquid refrigerant. Most dermabrasion procedures for scar treatment are performed using local anesthesia with or without the sedative. Your cosmetic surgeon may also give you some medication.

As great care needs to be taken for dermabrasion before and after, a great degree of care is also needed while moving the diamond fraises or wire brushes and controlling the depth of the ablation.

Care after dermabrasion

Wrapping your skin with the bandage after the dermabrasion is an absolute priority. The dressing may need to be changed and sterile bandages and tape should be used every time. Your skin may start re-epithelializing after 5–7 days of proper post-operative dressings and care. Some residual erythema for up to 4 weeks is common which gradually subsides.

Risk and complication after the surgery can be avoided completely if you comply with pre- and post-operative medicines and meticulous wound care. A scab or crust forms over the treated area as it begins to heal. You face may itch as new skin starts to grow from beneath.

Tom Disouza is a anti aging skin care specialist. He writes articles for several magazines on various skin care treatments focusing on best acne treatments

The Truth About Light Therapy for Acne

By Dennis Wilson

Are you frustrated with over-the-counter and prescription acne treatments that don’t work? Well people like you are turning to blue light therapy for acne. But does it work? How can shining a blue light on your face make any difference? Are there any side effects? And what does it cost? This article will answer these questions so you can decide if light therapy is for you.

It’s unbelievable but it’s claimed that shining a blue light on your skin kills the bacteria that cause acne. And red light rejuvenates the skin. So a combination of blue and red is best for treating acne. Of course this isn’t just any old blue or red light. It’s finely tuned to very specific properties, including dose. And it’s been evaluated and approved by the FDA. So it must work… right? Well it does to some extent.

There has been some scientific research that shows blue/red combination light therapy does work for some people. Studies show that on average, there’s a 73% reduction in acne after 8 weeks of treatment rising to 82% reduction after 12 weeks. There’s also anecdotal evidence that it works for some but not for others. This is normally only used for people with mild to moderate acne. Whether it works for you or not, there’s one piece of really good news… there’s absolutely no side effects.

That’s right, not a single reported side effect. That’s most unusual for an acne treatment. The light doesn’t burn or irritate the skin, and there’s no pain or discomfort either. Of course you do have to wear safety goggles to protect your eyes during treatment. There is one problem and that is the cost of treatment.

Professional treatment at a dermatologist typically costs $50 to $150 per session. Typically you might need one or two treatments a week, so the cost quickly mounts up. A cheaper way to go is to buy a home blue/red light box which can be as effective but needs daily use because of the lower power level. This will still set you back around $500. Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing if it will work for you until you try it.

So there you have it. If you have mild to moderate acne and other treatments haven’t worked for you, you can give blue light acne a go. Just so long as you don’t mind forking out some significant cash. But at least there are no adverse side effects to worry about. There are of course other alternatives with higher success rates and lower costs that you could try instead.

Are Pistachios a Great Acne-Preventing Snack?

By Naweko San-Joyz

Pistachios boast the skin enriching nutrients vitamins A, C and E plus, zinc and folic acid. Yet, new research from University of Toronto's Department of Nutritional Sciences could add pistachios to a growing list of acne treatments that already includes benzoyl peroxide and antibiotics.

The study’s findings revealed that pistachios could help regulate the body’s blood sugar levels.

In addition to a diabetic therapy, pistachio’s effect on the body’s blood sugar levels also marks it as a potential acne preventative. Biological traits characterizing acne onset include improper skin cell shedding, inflammation and excess bacteria. However, because of a pistachio’s effect on blood sugar levels, this nut could prevent acne resulting from excess facial oil secretion caused by a rise in circulating androgens.

Thus, pistachios could inhibit acne lesions induced by a condition called “insulin resistance”.

The relationship between acne and insulin resistance

The pancreas secretes the hormone insulin. The body needs insulin to access its primary energy source- blood sugar (glucose). Insulin binds to key receptors in the blood to release glucose as the body requires more energy.

Insulin resistance happens when the normal amount of insulin the pancreas secretes proves insufficient to signal the release of glucose. So, to compensate, the pancreas secretes more insulin in order to free the needed glucose.

Insulin resistance can incite acne lesions due to increased circulating androgens. Now, the Toronto study’s observations suggest that pistachios can stop androgen surges caused by blood sugar fluctuations.

Pistachios act as a blood sugar regulator

Dr. Cyril Kendall, lead researcher of the study explained, “…Our preliminary findings demonstrate that suppressing the glycemic (blood sugar) response of high carbohydrate foods may be part of the mechanism by which pistachios contribute to cardiovascular health and to the prevention and control of diabetes.”

Other scientists like Loren Cordain, PhD have noticed a link between insulin resistance and acne. In his work, “Implications for the Role of Diet in Acne”, Cordain writes, “Dietary interventions using low glycemic load carbohydrate may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of acne because of the beneficial endocrine effects these diets possess.”

Most acne treatments typically act on one or two symptoms such as surplus bacteria or clogged pores. Adding pistachios to the diet could help create a more robust acne therapy by also counteracting blood sugar shifts that produce excess oils and pimples.

Vitamins For Acne

By Marifer Vergara

Every part of one's body requires vitamins to sustain its proper health, the skin is one of the most important elements of the body that requires these health supplements. The skin is responsible for protecting the body from infections as well as producing various toxics through its pores and glands. Ultimately, it is clear why vitamins are needed to prevent acne on one's skin. This healing agent of the body needs more than just one vitamin to stay healthy. A series of vitamins are needed and are highlighted below:

Vitamin A

Many studies have concluded that low amounts of Vitamin A within the body can lead to heightened incidents of acne. Vitamin A prevents acne by eliminating or reducing the amount of sebum production within the body. Sebum is a natural body oil that is produced underneath the skin to lubricate the skin. As an antioxidant, Vitamin A takes toxic free radicals from the body. Some of the best sources of Vitamin A are green vegetables, yellow and/or orange fruits as well as carrots.

Vitamin B

Ultimately, Vitamin B includes a group of various elements such as Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Pantothenic Acid as well as Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) (among many others). These vitamins keeps one's skin in proper health. With natural elements of vitamins within them, they help to prevent acne. Some foods that Vitamin B are include in are: sweet potatoes, bananas, watermelons, chickpeas and avocados.

Vitamin C

This vitamin is vital for collagen production within the body. Collagen connects the tissue from the bones and skin. This vitamin helps fight against sickness and infections (acne included). Iron absorptions can be helped as well with Vitamin C. More of this vitamin is needed if you smoke, use birth control or antibiotics. Blackberry, grapefruit, lemon, and blackcurrant all have vitamin C within them.

Vitamin E

One of the most important vitamins that fight against acne, the ability to heal and repair skin tissues (because of antioxidant tendencies) is important with this vitamin. The cells are protected because of Vitamin E's ability to check fat oxidation levels.

Some other important vitamins for acne include chromium and zinc.

Acne Scar Skin Care - Great Tips That Help

By Max Suther

If your face is covered with acne scars, you need to take special precautions to minimize the potential for further scarring. You need to learn about special acne scar skin care that will help your sensitive skin.

Skin that is damaged by acne scars requires very gentle products. Make sure you choose cleansers or lotions that are not abrasive. If you wash your face too roughly or use abrasive products, your skin will become even more irritated. You should also make sure to use sunscreen that is oil-free whenever you venture outside. Oil-based products will clog your pores even further and make the acne even worse.

Using peels on a regular basis is another way to help reduce acne scarring. Most peels contain a low percentage of salicylic acid which will help to improve your skin condition. You should use a peel 1 to 3 times per week and maintain the regimen over an extended period of time for best results.

In addition to gentle cleaning products, you should use products specifically made for treating acne scars. These items are usually available in cream or gel form and are made to reduce the appearance of your scars. Many cosmetics and health care companies now offer their own brand of products to combat acne scars. You should conduct some research on the internet or ask a dermatologist which product may be right for your particular acne scars.

Some acne scar skin care products may even feature ingredients to help lighten the color of the scars, making them less visible to the eye. For example, products featuring prescription hydroquinone and glycolic acid are available at your local pharmacy. These will reduce the dark brown areas resulting from certain acne scars. You can also try a lightener that is available over-the-counter if your facial discoloration is not as pronounced.

The earlier you begin taking steps to treat your acne scars, the less likelihood you will develop severe permanent scarring later on in life. You can start to use gentle cleansers, oil-free sunscreens, weekly peels and acne treatment creams. With time and effort, your scars should eventually start to fade.

Cure Your Acne With Coconut Oil Treatment

By Helen Hecker

If you or someone you love suffers from acne - what you want to know is what you can do about it. Yes, you can do it -- look better, feel better, and raise your self-esteem by getting rid of your acne cheaply, naturally and for good. Keeping your skin clear doesn't have to be a trying experience with so many cheaper natural treatments available today.

Nearly 80 percent of people from ages 11 to 30 years have acne, most often on the face, chest and back. Acne is the most common skin disease. Numerous studies have revealed that acne is not simply a problem of the young; it also afflicts people of many ages, and can severely affect their daily lives. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne.

I think the cause of acne is related to our acidic, inflammatory 'standard American diet' (SAD) and that would also influence all of our hormones including stress hormones. If you've heard that dirty skin causes acne, it doesn't - it's a myth. The liver gets rid of toxins from bad food, drugs and chemicals and sends them through the skin resulting in eruptions, acne, pimples and other skin disorders.

Some natural home remedies include dabbing on non-gel toothpaste or lemon juice to dry out zits. When you wash your face use a soft touch, taking care not to rub or scrub your skin. This is a little messy but you can try making a paste by mixing three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon together and applying the paste on your pimples at bedtime for two weeks, and wash it off each morning; honey has anti-bacterial action - a cheap, natural home remedy.

One helpful remedy seems to be to use ice to reduce the swelling caused by inflamed pimples: rub it over the blemishes for 2-3 minutes. A new, non-invasive treatment using red light and blue light in combination has been extremely successful on severe acne. Try a diligent application of coconut oil several times a day and at bedtime to see the healing benefits.

Make sure to stay out of the sun if you're taking any acne medications. The treatment plan for acne includes trying to heal the pimples, stopping new pimples from forming, preventing scarring and helping reduce embarrassment. If you wear make-up choose it carefully; it should be oil free.

Coconut oil is one of the best, if not the best, treatments I've found for acne. It bears repeating, you want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting. Treatment with raw apple cider vinegar will work better on your skin if it isn't already noticeably irritated from acne medicines, acne products or other failed treatment.

If you're going to buy acne products, it's much more worth your while to buy acne-treating products that work against current pimples and prevent the occurrence of new ones. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring; best not to do it.

To cure yourself of acne, you need to correct the problems going on inside of your body that are causing the acne. Besides external acne treatment it's even more important to work from the inside out too. When you change your diet, your lesions should start getting better within a week or two, with significant improvement the first month.

The best acne treatment is a diet that will help the body eliminate waste; if you're eating the standard American diet (SAD) it'll be reflected in your skin. Adding a lot of fresh, raw fruit to the diet has helped many people clear their skin up; there are tons of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in fruits.

Good clear skin is often a reflection of a good digestive system. For an easy fiber boost, mix in two tablespoons of ground up flaxseeds into raw applesauce, from two to three apples, made in your food processor. Eating foods with essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with dry skin or acne.

Get plenty of sunshine on your arms and legs; sunshine triggers the production of Vitamin D3 which is essential to having healthy skin. Drink freshly extracted carrot juice, if you can, every day; carrot juice is an excellent cleanser for the liver, great for the skin and contains tons of nutrients, all beneficial for acne.

Fortunately, many people have discovered through trial and error how to cure their acne. In any case, try not to panic about your acne and take it day by day. There is hope - keep researching and testing.

Natural Acne Tips And Treatments - Save Your Skin And Money

By Helen Hecker

Keeping your skin clear doesn't have to be a trying experience with so many cheaper natural treatments available today. Below are some helpful, cheap tips on what to do to keep your acne under control and keep your skin clear. The problem with most acne treatments and acne products is that not everyone reacts the same way to the same treatment; what worked for one may not work for another.

The most common types of pimples are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. Acne rosacea is a red rash predominantly on the face. Numerous studies have revealed that acne is not simply a problem of the young; it also afflicts people of many ages, and can severely affect their daily lives. In a survey conducted in Great Britain, 95% of 16-year-old males and 83% of 16 year-old females had acne.

Acne, zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and many other skin disorders are usually, but not always, the result of a bad diet. The liver gets rid of toxins from bad food, drugs and chemicals and sends them through the skin resulting in eruptions, acne, pimples and other skin disorders. Scientists are trying to find the cause of acne and working on ways to prevent plugs.

Since the latest research indicates a connection between stress and acne, make an effort to cut down on stress any way you can. Try applying a thin layer of coconut oil and massaging it deep into the skin to heal and soothe the affected area. There are many natural acne home remedies; you may have to try several to find one that works best for your skin type.

Treatment with raw apple cider vinegar will work better on your skin if it isn't already noticeably irritated from acne medicines, acne products or other failed treatment. Remember, that even the most gentle and natural products you might use to clean your face can leave your skin a bit dry; use coconut oil as an excellent way to re-hydrate the skin after using any acne commercial or natural cleanser. Never underestimate the healing, restorative power of a good night's sleep.

Use baking soda on a test area carefully for exfoliation, if you feel you need it. The treatment plan for acne includes trying to heal the pimples, stopping new pimples from forming, preventing scarring and helping reduce embarrassment. Shave carefully and try both electric and safety razors to see which works best for you.

Any makeup you use should list on the label non-acnegenic or non-comedogenic. Besides acne, if you also have eczema or dry skin, coconut oil will treat those skin conditions too. It bears repeating, you want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting.

A new, non-invasive treatment using red light and blue light in combination has been extremely successful on severe acne. No over-the-counter creams can help your acne from the inside out; they can only kill some of the bacteria on your face and help reduce the redness.

To cure yourself of acne, you need to correct the problems going on inside of your body that are causing the acne. Drink lots and lots of pure, filtered water every day. Besides external acne treatment it's even more important to work from the inside out too.

When you change your diet, your lesions should start getting better within a week or two, with significant improvement the first month. People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation; if you are, make sure you're drinking lots of water every day and add more natural fiber from raw fruits to your diet.

Drink plenty of pure, filtered water, a minimum of a quart a day. Good nutrition will help your skin from the inside out. Eat at least two organic apples a day while working to clear up your skin; apples are good for skin health - organic so you can eat pesticide-free skin (most of the apple pectin is in the skin), which helps with constipation.

Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. Eating fruits that are red or orange in color will help improve you skin health and help to prevent acne.

One should always think about cheaper, alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution to their acne, zits, pimples and blackhead problems. Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances. With cheap, safe, simple, natural, effective, alternative home treatments for acne and pimples, your skin should be well on its way to recovery.

Acne Scars - When Would The Marks Go?

By Joann Grant

The problem of acne is very common among the teenagers as well as the adults. But the life span of acne may vary from person to person. So, for few it is a short, while for others it may seem like an eternity. And finally, when acne gets treated, the next question is how long would it take for the acne red marks to go?

People tend to get impatient when it comes to acne red marks, which normally appear once the healing process starts. They generally last for a short span. But they make people feel impatient. People tend to think that if acne could be removed, why should the marks hang around?

There are many factors responsible for the acne red marks. First of all, severity of the acne problem is the major cause. If one had suffered from a severe form of acne, the acne red marks are more likely to stay on for a longer duration.

Another factor is that the natural resistance of human body varies from person to person. So, the healing process may take longer if your natural healing capacity is on the lower side.

Interestingly you can cure these marks at home also. Prepare a pack by mixing five teaspoons of baking soda and nine teaspoons of water. Apply it on the affected area and leave it for sometime to dry. And then wash it off. In order to get better results, after applying the paste, you can also massage the spots with soft hands and then wash the area.

Sometimes marks left behind by acne are a pigment problem. Generally the persons with dark skin are affected by these pigment spots, which can be light brown or dark brown in color. If your acne was not treated with benzoyl peroxide, these marks would fade away automatically after some time.

Depending upon the factors stated above, the acne red marks normally last between four to twelve weeks. But the duration might vary from person to person. However, there is no need to worry because the marks would fade away sooner or later.

African American Acne Skin Care - Great List of Tips

By Max Suther

Acne is an annoying condition that can cause pain and embarrassment. Unfortunately, the condition can affect people from all areas and ethnic backgrounds. Many products are available for anyone suffering from acne. However, African American acne skin care is also available to help this particular ethnic group overcome the skin disorder.

If you are of African American descent and want to treat your acne, you should consult with a dermatologist. Many people believe that people with darker skin are not prone to sun damage or conditions suffered by other ethnic groups. The reality is that the extra melanin present in darker-skinned individuals makes their skin more sensitive and vulnerable to injury. This is why African Americans may be much more prone to scarring if they suffer from acne for long periods of time.

Fortunately, dermatologists and the health care industry are starting to realize that darker-skinned individuals require different skin care. Traditional products and methods were focused on combating acne and conditions for lighter-skinned individuals. Fortunately, new products are being developed specifically for people of different ethnic backgrounds. These products are often much gentler and less abrasive on the skin.

After extensive research, many products and treatment methods now reduce the risk of a condition called hyper or hypopigmentation that is prevalent in African Americans. The term refers to dark or light spots that appear on the skin and can result from acne. Treatments such as chemical peels are often used to combat acne. However, they are applied with a lower-strength solution for darker-skinned individuals. New lasers that transmit longer pulses are also used for different ethnic groups as they are better-suited for pigmented skin. Treatments such as Restalyne and collagen injections are also not suited for African Americans who have an increased tendency to develop raised scar tissue, known as keloids.

African Americans are not immune to skin disorders such as acne. However, the increased pigment in their skin requires special care to treat the condition. These individuals should choose special products geared towards sensitive skin. They should also find dermatologists who will perform procedures specifically tailored to darker-skinned individuals.

For information on African American acne skin care, try visiting, a popular website that offers acne remedy home cure tips, advice and resources to include information on how to buy acne skin care products.

The Potential Danger of Laser Hair Removal

By Antoinette Boulay

Short term dangers of laser hair removal do exist; this includes redness, as well as swelling. It typically lasts only a few days, although in rare cases, or if a procedure is incorrectly performed, a patient can also face other dangers. One potential danger of laser hair removal is the risk of laser hair removal burns.
When the laser hair removal procedure is not correctly performed, there is a risk of getting burnt, because the skin, rather than the hair follicle, absorbs the energy and heat of the laser. Before going through laser hair removal it important to decide whether this sort of treatment is suitable for you, to minimize any danger of laser hair removal, and other possible side effects.
Another frequent danger of laser hair removal is when a particular cream is used to numb the skin before the laser hair removal. This cream has been

implicated in the recent deaths of two college students. Shiri Berg, a North Caroline State University student, allegedly died in early January of a Lidocaine overdose.
Lidocaine cream had been applied by Berg prior to getting laser hair removal treatment at a North Raleigh spa. An autopsy showed that the cream that had been absorbed into Berg’s bloodstream, causing her to first go into seizures and then cardiac arrest, leading to lack of oxygen to her brain. Lidocaine overdose is a serious danger of laser hair removal. It can cause allergic reaction; one should carefully weigh all factors with one’s doctor, prior to usage.
The rapidly building trend of spas going high-tech, offering the latest laser hair removal treatments, and making claims that the procedure is 100% risk free with no side effects is also a big problem. The truth is far from the hype and many patients could develop second and third degree burns, experiencing severe pain.
Other intrinsic dangers of laser hair removal treatment also include operator error and inexperience. Often technicians performing laser hair removal procedures may have only minimal training using the laser. There is a chance of receiving inadequate or improper treatment that may cause, in the worst case, permanent damage.

Laser Hair Removal Tips

Pubic Hair Removal – Tips And Advise

By Al Falaq Arsendatama

Though there are many pubic hair removal methods, the best methods are waxing and shaving. Permanent ways such as pubic hair removal by laser treatment is unadvisable because there is a lot of unknown ground about the side effects of laser hair removal. In any case the laser treatment will definitely cause some very adverse and long lasting skin irritations and eruptions in this very sensitive area of the body due to the fact that it is always covered and not toughened by the elements and also the bony nature of the area.
Some Precautions Before Beginning The Hair Removal Process
It is advisable to avoid taking a shower or wetting the hair before waxing the

area. Hair becomes soft when wet and fails to stick to the wax and the procedure will be less effective and the wet hair will slip causing a great deal of discomfort and pain that can be avoided by waxing the hair when it is dry. Tough and thick hair is far easier to pull out than thin and weak hair that is more likely to break in the process rendering the procedure ineffective and painful. Other points to note are:
• One must always test a small area of the skin to ensure the skin is not allergic to the wax being used. Belgian wax is the best wax for pubic hair removal.
• Be sure to test a small area of skin first to make sure there is no acute sensitivity or allergic reaction to pubic hair removal using waxing.
• Waxing methods for pubic hair removal should be resorted to only when the hair is 1/8th of an inch long. It is advisable to wait till the hair reaches this length before waxing.
• Clean the skin with disinfectants thoroughly and dry it completely to remove any lotions or oils, which may prevent the wax from sticking to the hair.
• Take care to heat the wax enough and not over heat it and burn the skin in the process. Test the temperature of the wax on your skin before applying it over a large area.
• The consistency of the wax should be soft and not runny like honey.
• Use a pain reducing gel that can be obtained from a pharmacist. Apply the solution 30 to 60 minutes before waxing.
• Always apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the growth and peel back with a rapid movement as close to the skin as possible. Never pull up or out.
If you do not want to wax, you can shave in the direction of the growth after cleaning the area as described above. Never shave against the growth and never use a switchblade. Only a safety razor made for the purpose.

Pubic Hair Care and Groom

By Paton Jackson

Pubic hair is defined as the hair in the frontal genital area, in the crotch and some add the top inside of the legs. In most cases, distinguished pubic hair can be found within 3 years into puberty.
Women have always paid attention to grooming their pubic hair. In paintings from the 19’Th century naked women have a shaved or trimmed pubic hair. In some cultures as the Islam, women must trim their pubic hair.
There are 3 main pubic hair care types used among women:

1. Removing pubic hair – Pubic hair removal becomes more and more common. It is popular among the modern western society as well as traditional societies like Islam or Hindu. Some remove all they pubic hair while

others prefer to leave some of it usually with the shape of an upside down triangle (other shapes like heart are also popular).
There are several methods of removing pubic hair – trimming with scissors, tweezing, waxing (bikini wax) and shaving. Why use waxing? Hair growth slows within time and it can be done at home.
Why use shaving? It is relatively cheap and can be done at home. Why use tweezing? It is useful to remove some hair fibers but not all pubic hair.

2. Dying pubic hair – More and more women dye their pubic hair although they are not aware of the risk they take. There is no product in the market that was manufactured with the purpose of tinting pubic hair.
In spite of the potential risk many men and women will dye their pubic hair to become real and all red hair or blond.

3. Shaping pubic hair – Becoming a hair dresser and shaping the pubic hair with any shape you can imagine is a widespread phenomenon. The recommended steps to shaping the pubic hair area are: deciding on the shape, trimming the hair besides the hair you are leaving as short as possible, taking a warm shower, shaving the pubic hair with a razor, cleaning the area thoroughly and finally drying it off.
We executed an independent research to find the best method for removing pubic hair. The results were clear. Find out more on pubic hair shave.

Ingrown Pubic Hair - Six Tips

By Mike Jones

Ingrown hairs are known as Psuedofolliculitis Barbae (PFB), razor bumps, razor burn, hair bumps, shaving bumps, ingrowns.
Psuedofolliculitis Barbae refers to hair which has been cut or broken off below the skin level which then begins to grow through surrounding tissue rather than out of the follicle.
In other cases, hair curls round and starts growing back into the skin causing irritation and inflammation.
If you shave the pubic area, you remove the tapered end of the hair and, as the hair grows back without that tapered end, the sharpness will literally cut the skin surrounding the hair follicle.
Use these simple precautions to minimize the discomfort from ingrown pubic hairs:
For ingrown pubic hairs along the bikini line, hold a hot compress against

ingrown spots for ten minutes three times a day to soften the skin and help the hairs work their way out.
Wear loose-fitting underwear and clothing until the bumps are gone to avoid friction.
Some find it helpful to exfoliate the area before waxing. This removes some of the dead skin cells in the top layer of skin cells that often contribute to trapping the hairs.
Exfoliating options include creams, lotions, or body gels, a slightly abrasive washcloth or glove specifically designed for exfoliation. Check at the beauty counter at your local department store.
Do not exfoliate the skin if you already have ingrown pubic hairs as further skin irritation may result.
When waxing, be sure to pull the hair out by the roots. Do not allow the hair to break below the skin surface.
Use Ingrown Hair Treatment (see below). It prevents pubic ingrown hair and eliminates existing ingrown hair within days.
Additional note: For ingrown hairs which are deep, sterilize a pair of needle-nosed tweezers with rubbing alcohol and individually lift each ingrown hair out of its follicle. Wipe the area with alcohol afterwards and shave.
If needle-nosed tweezers are not available, wipe a pin or needle and the ingrown area with rubbing alcohol, then carefully release the hair in the direction that it grows using the tip of the needle only. After the hair is released, wipe the skin with alcohol again.

7 Persuasive Reasons Why Men Should Shave Their Privates

By Doug Smith

Here are seven reasons why men should consider shaving their privates. No, I'm not talking about Privates in the Army, although a "soldier" at attention, with a shiny helmet and a loaded weapon, is definitely involved.
Most men worry obsessively about the hair on their heads but rarely give a second thought to their pubic hair. Only when the time is right with that special lady do men realize they should have spent some time grooming their privates. Guys, here are 7 compelling reasons why you should groom your pubic hair or even remove it completely.
1. Cleanliness. The crotch is a focal point for heat, sweat, and bacteria. Cropping or removing your pubic hair makes that area

much easier to keep clean, and more importantly, smelling clean and manly. She's more likely to explore that area up close if it's well maintained.
2. Novelty. The contrast between your obviously adult-sized package and your new hairlessness can be quite erotic, and not just to you! Your lover may gush over the idea of making love to what now has the illusion of being forbidden fruit.
3. It's More Inviting. If you remove most or all of her objections to performing oral sex on you, isn't it worth the trouble? Pay special attention to removing stray hairs from your shaft. Hair in the mouth sucks, but she won't if she finds one.
4. Don't Forget The Scrotum. A woman's body is playground of softness and smoothness, so don't you think she'll appreciate the same on you? A silky smooth ball sack invites both manual and oral caresses. She's far more likely to play down there if she doesn't have to use a weed-whacker to find it.
5. It's Healthier. She'll see immediately that you have no skin outbreaks or unwanted "critters" to hide. Furthermore, you will have greater manual sensitivity when you perform your periodic testicular self-exam. You do examine yourself regularly, don't you? You should. The earlier you catch any problems, the easier they are to fix.
Learn more about Testicular Self Exams (TSE) at
6. It's Fun To Let Her Do It! That's right, let her shave you! This is not only an exercise in trust, but a highly-suspenseful erotic thrill ride. The danger of an ultra sharp razor in such a sensitive area, the tension of long slow razor strokes, the aching of your pulse-pounding erection, and the foamy friction of her shaving-creamed hand on your shaft can intensify your pleasure like you never thought possible. Just don't make any sudden moves.
And most importantly (to some at least):
7. It Makes Your Erection Look Huge. I'm not kidding - you will swear that you gained at least an extra inch in length! If your crotch is not groomed regularly, you probably have pubic hair at least part way up your shaft. Your penis "appears" to begin where that pubic hair ends. Remove the underbrush and your hidden length will be revealed.
When you're grooming the hair on your "big head," don't forget about the hair on the "little head" too! Whether you do it to please yourself or a partner (or both), regular pubic hair grooming or even total pubic hair removal can spice up your love life. If you like it enough, consider permanent removal methods such as laser hair removal or electrolysis.
Note that some people experience moderate to intense itching the first few days after shaving as the pubic hair grows back. You might want your first grooming experience to be at the beginning of a weekend so you're not squirming in your office chair all day Monday! The itching should decrease or stop if you continue to groom yourself regularly.
And if the guys in the gym locker room make fun of you, first ask them why they are checking out your package. In the embarrassed silence that follows, tell them why you did it, that you're having twice as much sex as they are, and what she's doing now that she wouldn't do before! Then get ready to answer their questions.

Best Laser Hair Removal In New York City

By Josh Riverside

New York has been called the hair removal capital in the world. This could well be true. But which among the hair removal facilities, known as spas, clinics or centers, are the best? There have been polls on this and several personal assessments. Variations are seen in the results.
The latest trend in hair removal is laser technology. If you were a potential

candidate, the ideal thing would be to do some checking and select the clinic you like best. If you have difficulty in finding one in your area, the New York State Association of Laser Hair Specialists can be contacted.
The first point to verify is the type of medical supervision. A board-certified doctor has to be on site to provide overall treatment management. Normally, nurses or technicians carry out the procedure. They should be either New York State Licensed aestheticians or Certified Laser Specialists. Ask for their credentials and experience; you are the one who is paying and you have all the right to ensure that you are in proper hands.
The next step is to make sure all equipment used is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). It is prudent not to trust any device or procedure that does not have this clearance. The FDA website could be a source for verification.
Usually, you get thirty minutes for a free initial consultation. Discuss the treatment plan and see whether you feel comfortable with it. This could be repeated with couple of other clinics. Check about any warranty; some centers offer a 3-year comprehensive guarantee.
Be wary about any facility that offers permanent hair removal. The FDA clearance is only for permanent hair reduction. After a period, some hair will grow back.
You can be the judge for choosing the best hair removal in New York.

4 Things You Must Know About Hair Loss

By Windel Briggs

Hair loss. Ick! Doesn't sound like fun, does it? Here are 4 things you must know about hair loss.

#1: Hair Loss Is Not Cool

Losing your hair might make you feel much older than you really are. It can also result in others viewing you as a parent or grandparent rather than dating material.

Of course you don’t want to be blinding people with your shiny bald head as you walk down the street, either! (Rumor has it that some people have gotten tickets for “traffic interference” when the glare from their bald heads blinded a driver!)

#2: Hair Loss Can Be Caused By Various Things

Men and women both suffer from hair loss for a variety of reasons. Yet there are so many options available now that no one should have to live with hair loss any more.

The first thing you need to do if you are losing hair is schedule an appointment with your doctor. It could be a sign of a serious medial issue that needs to be addressed.

If you are taking prescription medications the hair loss might be a side effect. For some individuals, hair loss is hereditary. The term male pattern baldness falls under this category.

#3: You Can Fight Hair Loss!

While you can’t do much about the genetics you have, there are some good options of keeping a nice head of hair. Some medications work well for individuals who have moderate levels of hair loss.

For more severe cases, other options may have to be looked at. These days wigs are a good option. Many of them look so good you can’t tell they aren’t real.

Some even feature highlights and things that are in style right now in society. For a permanent option you may consider a hair transplant. This process involves moving hairs from various locations on the scalp so they can grow in others. Each hair is individually harvested and moved.

#4: A Good Doctor Can Help

Having the hair you want is definitely a possibility. Don’t let hair loss be something that affects your appearance or your self esteem. There are plenty of good options out there for you.

To find out which ones fit your particular scenario schedule an apointment with your doctor. They can refer you to a specialist if there are no underlying medical conditions to worry about. You don’t have to worry about hair loss anymore! Of course some people like the look of being bald as it appealing and sexy to them.

Other people like the idea of not having to take the time to wash, comb, or style their hair anymore. The choice is yours but if you want to keep your hair take a look at the options out there before the situation progresses.
