Microneedling: How To Get Rid of Wrinkles and Scars

Like the rest of your body, your skin accumulates damage over the years from environmental toxins and bad habits like smoking or a poor diet. You might have visible scars on your face… or skin that’s been left with pits and pocks from childhood chicken pox or acne. If you go to a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist, they’ll likely suggest an invasive and painful procedure with a long recovery. But I’m here to tell you that you don’t need a facelift if you want to look younger. And you don’t need a chemical peel to get smoother skin. How To Help Restore Your Skin I’ve been helping my patients restore their youthful skin through microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). And it just may be the hottest aesthetic anti-aging therapy I’ve found. One of the women on my staff, Christine, had microneedling with PRP a few weeks ago. This morning, she burst into my office to tell me how thrilled she was with the results. “I never thought my skin could look this good in my 40s,” she said. “It’s soft and smooth, the hollows under my eyes have filled in, and the uneven pigmentation from the sun is gone. I feel like I have baby skin!” Christine may have been shocked by her results, but I wasn’t. My patients who’ve had microneedling with PRP are thrilled with their outcomes. What is the procedure for microneedling with PRP? Here’s how the procedure works… First, I take a small amount of...

Here’s another excerpt from my new Revised &Expanded Edition of Wheat Belly, taken from chapter 16, Mr. and Mrs. Wheat Belly: LOOK DOWN AND YOU SHOULD immediately get an idea of where your sexual preferences lay. Well, at least a rough idea. The unnatural situation created when humans try to consume the seeds of grasses, packed with disrupters of human hormones, undo some of those anatomical, pre-programmed tendencies. Once again, eating things that should never have made it onto the human dietary menu defies the script written into our genetic codes, expressed as painful menstrual cycles, excessive body hair, in...

CONCLUSION: AKN is common in young adults. Excess weight or obesity, bleeding during hairdressing, and frequency and style of hairdressing are all associated factors. The results of this study stress the importance of limiting injury during hairdressing, and of refraining from shaving or cropping hair without a trimmer. Since management of AKN is extremely difficult, identification of associated risk factors allows suitable preventive approaches to be adopted. PMID: 32081453 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Today I'd like to share a collection of funny quotes. Why? Because of the simple power of taking a laugh break. A laugh break is just 5-15 minutes when you watch, read or listen to something that makes you laugh. Like: One or a couple of Youtube-videos. Half an episode that one sit-com that makes you laugh the most. A comic strip on paper on online. An episode of a podcast or your favorite radio show. Or simply hanging out for a while with your funniest co-worker, friend or family member. But why take a laugh break? Because it’s – in my experience – one of the most reliable and quick-acting ways to rel...

Subcision is a commonly performed procedure for depressed rolling scars of acne.1 Breaking up the fibrotic strands mechanically with a blade or needle leads to neocollagenosis and hematoma formation, resulting in elevation of the depressed scars. However, the excessive mechanical force often leads to trauma to the surrounding tissue, excessive bleeding, and large hematoma formation and fibrosis.

Bevacizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial factor (VEGF) that targets tumor cell angiogenesis and proliferation. Although it is usually well tolerated, many side-effects have been reported. These include hypertension, bleeding, and thromboembolic events among others. Drug-associated cutaneous adverse effects are less common and include itching, exfoliative dermatitis, and acneiform eruptions. A man with bevacizumab-associated monomorphic skin eruption successfully was treated with 30% salicylic acid peels. To the author ’s knowledge, this is the first report of open comedones with no ...
