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...

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 ...

CONCLUSIONS: Among women with endometriosis, moderate-quality evidence shows that mifepristone relieves dysmenorrhoea, and low-quality evidence suggests that this agent relieves dyspareunia, although amenorrhoea and hot flushes are common side effects. Data on dosage were inconclusive, although they suggest that the 2.5 mg dose of mifepristone may be less effective than higher doses. We found insufficient evidence to permit firm conclusions about the safety and effectiveness of other progesterone receptor modulators. PMID: 28742263 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Written by Sarah Schuster There are the quirky, small things that make you, you. Then, there are the things you do because of anxiety. While personality traits and anxious habits can blend together, to an outsider it’s not always clear which of these “habits” are driven by anxiety. Whether it makes you look “rude” (avoiding phone calls, canceling plans) or “odd” (leaving a social setting quickly, bouncing your leg) — it can be hard when others judge you based on these actions without knowing what’s going on inside your head. To find out some habits of people who have a...

The new Undoctored book is scheduled for release this coming May 9th, 2017, a book that shows how you can be freed from the bonds of a predatory, profit-seeking healthcare system.  Here’s a bit more from the book, now available in pre-release.   Undoctored: An excerpt Unquestionably, there are situations in which doctoring and the healthcare system are needed. If you are bleeding, injured, or struggling to breathe with pneumonia, some old-fashioned suturing, bone-setting, or antibiotics can still do the trick. Nobody around here is going to replace their own hip joint or treat a urinary tract infection with...

ConclusionBleeding complications in skin surgery are generally rare. Even if slightly increased complication rates are found in patients taking anticoagulants during skin surgery, platelet inhibitors should not be stopped prior to surgery. If a surgical procedure in patients on a combination therapy of 2 or more antiplatelet cannot be postponed, it should be conducted with the patient remaining on combination therapy. Discontinuation of DOACs is recommended 24 h prior to surgery. Bridging of phenprocoumon should be terminated. In patients with a bleeding history, the INR value should be within the therapeutic range.
