Skin Resurfacing and Skin Needling – Anti-Ageing Treatments

Skin Resurfacing, also known as Skin Needling, is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates the skin. It helps the skin to regenerate itself safely, naturally creating a smoother, brighter, healthier and younger-looking skin.

There are many reasons why people choose to have Skin Resurfacing:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face and décolletage
  • Softening the look of stretch marks
  • Revitalising aged and sun-damaged skin
  • Reducing hyper-pigmentation marks
  • Tightening pores, which become larger as we get older
  • Rejuvenating hands and minimising the signs of ageing
  • Improving marks left by acne scarring, chicken pox scars and rosacea
  • The treatment requires no down time and recovery times are shorter than chemical skin peels
  • It naturally stimulates the skin to repair itself
  • It’s suitable for all skin tones and types (although it’s not suitable for you if you have – active acne, eczema, psoriasis, raised moles or warts)
  • Minimal down time (two to five days)

The skin needs preparing for six weeks before the procedure, using specially designed skin care products and used regularly after the procedure too, ensuring the best possible result with fast recovery. The medical needling instrument is a sterile roller, which the doctor rolls across the skin, causing lots of micro-punctures to the lower layers of the skin, and these stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. Clinical studies show that formation of collagen increases by 400%. The treatment results in tighter skin, fewer lines and wrinkles and softening and reducing scars.

A topical anaesthetic cream gets applied to the skin before the procedure to numb the area. The roller device produces thousands of micro-medical needle-columns into the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will then close rapidly, enabling the skin to recover quickly, usually in the same day. Once the procedure is over, your body will start to naturally regenerate and working below the surface in the dermis, repair the skin.

Immediately after the Skin Resurfacing procedure your skin will have a red appearance and may feel warmer and tighter than usual, but this will start to subside over 24 hours. Once the redness has cleared, it’s important to take care of your skin with a daily effective anti-ageing regime. It may take up to six weeks before you see any visible signs of regeneration and repair, and the results will continue to improve over the following months, giving you a natural and long-lasting enhancement. The procedure needs repeating every eight to twelve weeks and optimal results are noticeable after 4-6 sessions. Clinical experience has shown the results are not temporary, but endure for many years (two – three years)

Symptoms and Treatments for Skin Cancer

Cancer is one of the most feared diseases among the individuals, and people suffering from it are also in fear, but the best way to remove the fear from the cancer disease is by detecting the cancer on the early stage and getting the scope of removal of it from your body.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer. About 5.4 million basal and squamous cell cancers are diagnosed each year. (These are found in about 3.3 million Americans; some people have more than one.) Melanoma, the most deadly type of skin cancer, will account for about 76,380 cases of skin cancer in 2016

The article explains about Skin cancer and its causes. Skin cancer is a common and locally destructive (malignant or cancerous) growth of the skin. It originate from the cells that line up along the skin membrane that separates the superficial layer of skin from the deeper layers. Unlike cutaneous cancerous melanoma, the vast majority of these sorts of skin cancers have a limited potential to spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening.

There are commonly three major types of Skin cancer

• Basal cell carcinoma (most common)

• Squamous cell carcinoma

• Melanoma (which originate from the pigment producing skin cells)

Basal cell carcinoma (most common)

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common cancer in humans. Over 1 million new cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. There are several different types of basal cell carcinoma, including the superficial type, the least worrisome variety; the nodular type, the most common; and the morpheaform, the most challenging to treat because the tumors often grow into the surrounding tissue (infiltrate) without a well-defined border.

Squamous cell carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma accounts for about 20% of all it but is more common in immunosuppressed people. In most instances, its biologic behavior is much like basal cell carcinoma with a small but significant chance of distant spread. Less common include melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, atypical fibroxanthoma, cutaneous lymphoma, and dermatofibrosarcoma.

Melanoma

The most dangerous form of cancer, these cancerous growths develop when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds) triggers mutations (genetic defects) that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors. These tumors originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. Melanomas often resemble moles; some develop from moles. The majority of melanomas are black or brown, but they can also be skin-colored, pink, red, purple, blue or white. Melanoma is caused mainly by intense, occasional UV exposure (frequently leading to sunburn), especially in those who are genetically predisposed to the disease. Melanoma kills an estimated 10,130 people in the US annually. If melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable, but if it is not, This can advance and spread to other parts of the body, where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal.

Risk factors for skin cancer include:

• Too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation (from sunlight or tanning beds and lamps)

• Pale skin (easily sunburned, doesn’t tan much or at all, natural red or blond hair)

• Exposure to large amounts of coal tar, paraffin, arsenic compounds, or certain types of oil

• You or members of your family have had skin cancers

• Multiple or unusual moles

• Severe sunburns in the past

• Weakened immune system

• Older age (although melanomas are also found in younger people)

Signs and symptoms of skin cancer

Skin cancer can be found early, and you and your health care providers play key roles in finding skin cancer. Learn how to examine your skin for changes. If you have any of these symptoms, see a provider:

• Any change on your skin, especially in the size or color of a mole, growth, or spot, or a new growth (even if it has no color)

• Scaliness, roughness, oozing, bleeding, or a change in the way an area of skin looks

• A sore that doesn’t heal

• The spread of pigment (color) beyond its border, such as dark coloring that spreads past the edge of a mole or mark

• A change in sensation, such as itchiness, tenderness, or pain

How to prevent?

Many types of cancer can be prevented by avoiding triggers that cause tumors to develop. Prevention strategies include protection from the sun by the use of sunscreens, protective clothing, and avoidance of the sun during the peak hours of 9 AM to 3 PM. Parents should ensure children are protected from the sun. Do not use tanning beds, which are a major cause of excess ultraviolet light exposure and a significant risk factor for skin cancer.

How it is treated?

In choosing the best treatment option, your doctor will consider your age and general health, the type and size of cancer, where it is on your body and what you want. The treatment choice will also depend on whether the skin cancer has spread elsewhere in your body.

Types of treatment include:

• Surgery

• Freezing

• Scraping

• Radiotherapy

• Chemotherapy.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the many countries. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common.

Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common in people who

• Spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned

• Have light-colored skin, hair, and eyes

• Have a family member with skin cancer

• Are over age 50

The Next Step in Medical Technology – Bio Identical Hormone Replacement

What is Bio identical hormone replacement therapy?

It is the use of supplemental dosage of hormones that have a chemical configuration matching to the hormones that the human body naturally produces. By the use of compounds that have exactly the identical chemical and molecular configuration as the key hormones physically found in the human body, this therapy aids to recover an individual’s life’s worth, verve and well-being. In addition, this therapy also contributes to slowing the ageing process of the individual recipient. The working of the therapy is quite straightforward. After a doctor concludes that a patient is in hormonal decline, a static dosing will be administered. The hormone levels are approximated and a patient is prescribed equal amounts of recommended hormones every day of the month.

Are you rightly eligible for the therapy?

One question which importantly stands out amongst others is the fact that is the individual really eligible for taking the Bio identical hormone replacement therapy? The therapy is advisable for individuals who are suffering from the following

  1. A loss of libido
  2. Instances of fatigue
  3. Reduced bone mass
  4. Premature Menopause
  5. Depression and mood swings associated with Menopause
  6. Insufficient concentration levels
  7. Poor skin collagen

The SupportThere are many who stand in support with the Bio identical hormone replacement therapy. As individuals age, the levels of some chief hormones in the body go lesser. These generally comprise oestrogens, testosterone and progesterone. The loss of these key hormones may cause problems. One common problem associated with women is Menopause. Other common effects of low hormones comprise hot flashes, loss of energy, memory loss, sleeping problems, fatigue, weight gain, or even night sweats. This treatment is thus vital to replace the hormones that have been otherwise lost in the body. As a result of the treatment, hormone levels will boost and symptoms will progress. As of now, national societies and expert suggestions present that the dangers and benefits of this therapy are still debatable.

The Criticism

Where there is support, you also have criticism. There are definite side effects observed for men and women who have taken the Bio identical hormone replacement therapy. Individuals have reported increased assertiveness, or even acne and irritability during the early phases of testosterone hormone therapy. Yet, these issues are normally resolved as levels become balanced. Accordingly, side effects may occur when a dose of the therapy is first given. The human body is not really used to the new intensity of hormones. The dose can also be altered in such a case.

All in all, many doctors who use bio identical hormones have maintained that they are safer than standard hormone replacement therapy. Bio identical hormones reduce risks of problems and side effects that were observed in the standard hormone therapy. The benefits associated are several with the side effects being temporary and negligible.

Water: Thirst Aid and First Aid

Water is never a part of any first aid kit, but perhaps it ought to be. In its various forms, from steam to solid ice, water can be used to prevent and relieve many minor maladies. These uses are fairly well known but in this age of modern, sophisticated medicine, this humble but effective potion has been almost forgotten. Here are some ways with water. Try it. Trust it.

Fever Control: When body temperature shoots high, it must be controlled quickly. Sponging the patient’s body all over with tepid (not cold) water can help bring down the fever. The water should be allowed to evaporate as much as possible, without wiping it off.

Sore Throat: Gargling is a relief measure for that tight sore throat that makes swallowing so painful. It does much to ease discomfort and control the infection. The formula: Half a teaspoon of salt in one glass of warm (not steaming) water. Gargle three or four times a day. It works!

Burns: The best first aid for burns is cool running water (not ice), applied immediately. Hold the burnt areas under a running tap – prompt cooling minimizes the damage to deeper tissues.

Constipation: If you are prone to constipation, try stepping up your water intake to at least 8 glasses a day. Keeping a glass of water by your side and sipping from it from time to time makes it easier to consume than trying to guzzle huge glassfuls at one go.

Diarrhea: Strangely enough, water – which relieves constipation, is equally a must for those with diarrhea. Much of the weakness associated with diarrhea comes from dehydration. A person week with diarrhea should be fed water, thirsty or not.

Dehydration! What is it?

To put it simply dehydration is drying out or losing moisture. Wet clothes become wearable through dehydration, grapes turn into raisins because of dehydration. But when applied to human being, dehydration takes on a rather grim meaning. If not controlled in time, it can even be fatal.

Dehydration occurs when a large amount of body water is lost, but not replenished. When the body’s water content falls below a safe level, resulting in mild dehydration which can progress to serve dehydration. Whether mild or severe, dehydration is dangerous and must be promptly corrected.

Risk of Dehydration: Anyone, who is losing more water than he is taking in, this could happen to people with diarrhea, severe vomiting, high fever with bouts of heavy sweating, or those who are losing excessive amounts of water through the urine, due to untreated diabetes and so on. Babies and children can go into dehydration rather quickly and so can old people.

How to recognize dehydration: Mild dehydration can set in even before a doctor sees the patient. As a safely measure, other family member should learn to watch for symptoms such as these; a dry mouth and tongue, cracked lips, reduced output of urine, skin which looks thin and lax, instead of moist and firm. A child crying without tears, or repeatedly licking the lips, may also be dehydrated.

How to Control Dehydration: Prevention is better than cure is definitely true of dehydration/ As soon as a person begins to suffer diarrhea or vomits more than three or four times, he should make sure that he takes in enough water or other fluids, even if he is not thirsty. A few sips now and then are easier to hold down than larger quantities.

A severely ill person may not indicate thirst or be alert enough to drink. Such person should be fed boiled, cooked water at rate of two or three spoonfuls at a time, every five or 10 minutes. Any light fluid is suitable, but milk is not recommended. A liter of boiled, cooked water with six teaspoons of sugar and half a teaspoon of salt is the formula recommended for oral re-hydration. Coconut water is also excellent.

Severe hydration however may not be controllable by oral re-hydration alone, especially when the patient is vomiting. In such case, a doctor’s help is needed and fast!

Dehydration is only the side effect of another illness, but sometimes it can prove deadlier than the illness itself. Luckily, it is a condition that can be easily prevented.

Urinary Tract Infections: if you are prone to these, always drink plenty of water especially I you feel an attack coming on, with symptoms of burning during urination and low backache. A very minor infection can literally get washed out with water.

Sprains: Hot water is no longer the recommended treatment for sprains. Ice is the correct first aid. Make an ice pack by trying a few cubes in a cloth and apply to the sprain. Prevents swelling, reduces pain.

Water Exercises: These are recommended for people who are handicapped or are too obese to exercise. Known as aqua aerobics, they are done in a shallow swimming pool. Water is 12 times more resistant than air. Walking through it strengthens muscles more than does walking on land.

You can also burn more calories in the water, if you really work at it. Walking at three miles per hour in mid thigh deep water uses 450 calories in an hour – almost twice as many as does land walking at the speed.

Water buoys you up, lets you move your limbs more freely and lightly than on dry land, gives you the exercise you need – without all that heavy going.

Aches and Pain Relief: water is a good carrier of temperature, so where heat and cold are needed, water can help. Heat relieves muscular or skeletal pain, the kind suffered by arthritics, or bad backs or aches due to injury or exercise. A warm water soak causes blood vessels to dilate. Blood flows away from swollen joints so that they are slightly de-sensitized, temporarily relieving soreness. Application of hot water bottles does help.

Congested Chests: Water is the best expectorant. Frequent sipping of warm water helps thin down phlegm, makes it easier to cough out.

Enema: Something which people hate to think of when in good health, but a great relief for those plagued by stubborn constipation! An enema involves introduction of water into the bowel to induce a bowel movement.

Nose Bleed: A cloth soaked in chilled water, or an ice pack, can help control a nose bleed. Old this cold compress into the ridge of the nose or back of neck till bleeding stops.

I firmly believe that the whole universe is inter-connected. Our body, mind and spirit are deeply rooted with each other. If body is sick, the mind cannot relax or feel good. And if mind is not relaxed, it will give birth to stress and that will lead to chronic health problems.

An In-Depth View of the C-Reactive Protein Test

C-Reactive Protein Test or commonly called CRP Blood test aids in the diagnosis of the presence of inflammation in the body. C-Reactive Protein is a special substance produced by the liver which is generally defined as an acute phase reactant. CRP levels typically rise in response to the existence of inflammation in the body which may be a result of an active or underlying respiratory infection, cancer, heart-related disease, pneumonia or tuberculosis.

What do high levels of CRP indicate?

Elevated levels of CRP are believed to have a correlation with an increased risk of having a heart attack or a stroke. A doctor may also recommend a CRP blood test to a patient who has undergone a surgery and it’s essential to map his/her risk of getting a postsurgical infections or to monitor inflammatory diseases such as

  • An inflammatory bowel disease,
  • Inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid, giant cell arthritis, etc.
  • An autoimmune disease such as lupus, etc.

What are the signs of elevated CRP level?There are no specific signs or symptoms that may indicate high levels of CRP in the blood. They typically depend on the underlying inflammatory condition in the body. An individual with latent tuberculosis will showcase symptoms accordingly. While CRP blood test for cancer may be recommended if an individual showcases symptoms of that cancer type.

What happens during the test?

During a CRP blood test, a small amount of blood is drawn from a vein of the body, usually from the one near the elbow or back of the hand. The sample is collected in special blood sample tubes which are duly labeled and sent to the lab for testing and analysis. A C-Reactive Protein test for babies is similar to that of adults and requires no prior preparation.

Being a simple blood test there aren’t any risks involved. But there’s a slight chance that a patient may witness complications such as excess bleeding, dizziness or light-headedness or bruising at the point of skin puncture.

What do CRP Blood Test Results indicate?

The clinical unit for measuring C-Reactive Protein level is milligrams of CRP per liter of blood (mg/L). If a test report reads a result less than 1 mg/L, it indicates low risk of developing a cardiovascular disease. On the other hand, reading between 1 and 2.9 mg/L means intermediate risk. While a reading higher than 3 mg/L indicates a high risk of cardiovascular disease. Any reading above 10 mg/L implicates the need to conduct further tests to determine the cause of severe inflammation in the body. Common causes include:-

  • lupus, another kind of connective tissue disease, or an autoimmune disease
  • osteomyelitis or a bone infection
  • cancer, especially lymphoma
  • inflammatory bowel disease
  • an arthritis flare-up
  • tuberculosis
  • pneumonia

It’s essential to note that CRP levels may also be high in individuals who are on birth control pills or in the second trimester of their pregnancy. Having an infection, an intrauterine device or being overweight can also showcase high levels of CRP in individuals. It is therefore, advised that before getting a CRP blood test done, it’s vital to speak to a specialist about your present condition and disclose on-going medications as most medications have a tendency to hamper the test results which in turn can open doors to unknown complications.What does A C-Reactive Protein treatment involve?

Bringing down CRP levels is not the solution to eliminate the chances of reducing the risk of suffering from a cardiovascular, kidney or an autoimmune disease. What’s more important is to understand that one must maintain a healthy lifestyle to eliminate the plausible risks. The most effective and reliable CRP test positive treatment involves taking the prescribed medicines on-time, exercising regularly, having a balanced diet and quitting smoking.

Who should get a CRP test done?

A standard CRP test is not recommended to every individual as it’s not a general screening test. It is recommended or particularly used for the detection of inflammation and significant bacterial infections in an individual’s body system. The test is available at all the leading pathology labs and medical centers of the nation. It’s also highly reasonable, and its reports are typically made available within 24 hours of submission of the blood sample to the laboratory for testing and analysis.

The author is an active writer and works with a leading diagnostic chain of the nation. He is well aware of different kinds of diseases, infections and conditions that surround the humans, their symptoms, complications and how effectively they can be treated. Her latest detailed analysis of C-Reactive Test for Cancer was highly appreciated by her readers.

What Are The Ways Of Reducing Weight?

To be beautiful is the dream of every individual especially females. But that beauty diminishes due to increase in weight. This beauty can be regained by following certain ways of reducing weight. The ways which help us in reducing weight are explained in the following manner:

High Protein Breakfast
The substance which constitutes 15 % body mass is protein. The molecules of protein construct a large amount of fabric in our body. It also contributed a lot in reducing the stoutness of the body. High protein breakfast is totally free from calories (which helps in reducing stoutness). High protein breakfast includes a glass of milk, egg, cereals and sweat potato hashed with sausage and eggs etc.

Sugar
Intake of sugar rich food leads to increase in so many calories in the body. Sugar contains carbohydrates, which get converted into fats and thus leads to increase in weight. So, to reduce the grease of the body we should avoid sugar rich food.

Water
Water is that fluid which makes our body healthier in every respect. Intake of excess amount of water leads to decrease in the grease of the body. It is a home remedy of decreasing fats, to drink water in the utensil of copper.

Intake of Food which reduces Fats
To avoid grease we should have that type of food which does not have fats. Such type of food includes whole eggs; leafy green like spinach, kale and collards etc; salmon; cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage etc; lean beef and chicken breast etc.

Soluble Fibre
Soluble fibre decreases cholesterol level and sugar level, thereby reduces fat in the body. Soluble fibre comprises oats, oranges, dry beans, barley, psyllium, nuts and lentils etc.

Intake of tea or coffee
Tea or coffee is a common drink in our day to day life. Tea or coffee is basically consumed for refreshment. Both drinks have certain advantages and one among them is a reduction in body-grease (by providing caffeine to us).

Eat Food Slowly
The obesity is also the cause of our eating habits. If we eat food fast, then our hormones get affected thereby leading to obesity. Thus, to avoid obesity, we should eat food slowly.

Proper Sleep
Improper sleep increases our appetite and thus we indulge in the danger of obesity. So to have balanced figure we should have a proper sleep (minimum 6 hours).

Exercise
The best way to maintain our health is to do regular exercise. By doing exercise daily for 2 hours we can reduce tallow of our body. The exercise includes yoga, aerobics and gym. Exercise provides better shape to the body. Even it reduces our hunger.

Treatment
Weight loss surgery is carried out in different hospitals in India. Apollo hospital (Chennai) is the best hospital in India for such type of surgery. Max hospital (Delhi NCR) is another hospital in India for this surgery.

Thus, to decrease stoutness is not a big deal. It is in our hands to become healthy and have a balanced figure so as to look young and beautiful.

How To See Clues That A Person Lacks Sleep With Early Warning of Health Issues

Signals of a Lack of Sleep or Improper Sleep

If one is not simply getting enough sleep, the body ultimately begins revealing outside indications. Among the very first indications of being denied of your sleep is feeling tired throughout the day.

Somewhat surprising to some, another indication is, if you are able to lie down at night and fall asleep in 5 minutes or less. While some people believe this is excellent, having the ability to go to sleep so rapidly. It typically indicates that you are simply without enough sleep or a good enough restful sleep.

Some otherwise active individuals experience Microsleeps or a condition where you experience brief bursts of sleep in an individual that is active, possibly monitoring a computer screen or even driving a vehicle. These unintended bursts are very brief, we are talking a split second as when a head snaps or quickly nods or even as much as 30 seconds at a time; but a loss of attention as this can be a serious safety issue in some circumstances. Your absence of sleep can trigger you to feel dazed, raising your threat of falling asleep at your desk or behind the wheel of your cars and truck. When this effect occurs, often you might feel as though you do not know exactly what simply took place or that you weren’t actually there for that quick time.

Is Botox the New Psychiatrist?

Most men and women do not like the idea of aging, losing their looks, acquiring facial lines and wrinkles. Well, like it or not this is the way nature operates and we all just have to face up to the experience. Some people let themselves go and do not bother to prolong the inevitable. Others, however, spend thousands of dollars on expensive beauty creams hoping they can buy faces that can continue to appear youthful and radiant. The determined age defyers will either have plastic surgery procedures, liposuction, or, reshape their contours with a series of Botox injections.

What is Botox?

Botox is a toxin produced by the same microbe that causes the type of food poisoning called botulism that temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. Botox injections are commonly known for being able to reduce the appearance of some facial wrinkles. Although there are now other products on the market, Botox was the forerunner drug in the use of botulinum toxin for this purpose.

Botox injections block out certain chemical nerve signals that cause temporary muscle contraction thereby relaxing the facial muscles that cause age wrinkles, such as:

• Furrows on the forehead
• Frown lines that occur between the eyebrows
• Crows feet from eye corners

Many women have undergone Botox injections for removal of their wrinkles and maintaining a youthful appearance. It has now been revealed that one in nine men also indulge in Botox injections. Apparently, it makes them feel refreshed, improves their self-esteem, and alleviates tension headaches. Added to this it improves their general feeling of well-being for the ten to twelve weeks period of the injection. For males, Botox is often referred to as “Brotox.”

Botox injections usually start working a few days after a treatment. Depending on the reason for treatment, the effect can last for as long as three months or more! Regular follow-up injections are necessary to maintain the effect.

Pregnant or breast-feeding women should avoid using botulinum toxin, as well as those people who have had an allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients previously.

Botox also used for health

Botox injections are used for treating problems such as repetitive neck spasms, overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and lazy eye. In addition it can help some people who suffer from chronic migraines. It is important for the injections to follow in consecutive order to avoid any side effects. Botox injections must only be used under a skilled doctor that is experienced in Botox therapy, as it can be dangerous if incorrectly administered.

Botox risks and side effects

Although Botox injections are relatively safe as long as they are performed by an experienced doctor, there are some possible side effects:

• Crooked smile or drooling
• A headache or flu type symptoms
• Eye dryness or excessive amount of tears
• Pain, bruising or swelling of the injection area
• Droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows

For a few week period after you have had a Botox injection if you notice any of the following symptoms, call you doctor immediately

• Vision problems
• Trouble breathing
• Muscle weakness all over the body
• Loss of bladder control
• Trouble swallowing or speaking

Inform your doctor

If you have had any type of botulinum toxin injections during the past four months and you want to have Botox injections be sure to tell your doctor prior to having them. The same is necessary if you take sleeping aids, muscle relaxants, allergy medications or blood thinners. In order to reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising, you may need to stop taking them for a few days before your injection.

Coconut Oil Massage To Bring Back the Shine

If you have frizzy and dull looking hair, coconut oil treatment is a must try for you. It is extremely effective for all types of hair, particularly for porous or chemically treated types of hair. The oil is a rich source of Vitamin E, which is essential for the nourishment of your hair.

Heat a slice of cold-pressed coconut oil until it is lukewarm. Next, you need to massage the oil into your scalp gently and let it stay overnight. Wash your hair the next morning. You can repeat the procedure for 1-2 times in a week and you will find your hair more lustrous and healthier. If you are looking for a quality coconut oil product, Parachute is a most recommended one.

Rosemary and Castor Oil to Reduce Hair Fall

If huge hair fall is your serious concern right now, rosemary and castor oil mask treatment is a must-try for your hair. Regular application of this mask will stimulate hair growth and dramatically reduce hair fall over the time. The natural properties of these oils will also save you from gray and thin hair strands.

Take a tablespoon of Rosemary oil and add a cup of castor oil in a glass container, preferably a glass bottle. Blend the oils well and apply the mixture on your scalp as well as strands properly. Follow this procedure before bedtime, so you can leave the mask on your hair all night.

Coconut oil and Honey Mask to Getting Softer Hair

If you wish to add more softness to your hair, use a mixture of coconut oil and honey for your hair. Take about 5 tablespoons of honey and about 7 tablespoons of coconut oil in a pan. Next, heat the mixture till it is lukewarm.

Apply the mix on your hair strands from top to tail using a hair brush. Wear a shower cap if you don’t want to share the sticky mix with your pillow. Wear mask overnight and rinse off your hair with gentle shampoo in next morning. You will start noticing the difference from a first application.

Anti-dandruff Solution

Dandruff is quite a common hair problem in winter days. However, this doesn’t mean you need to manage to live with those white flakes and itchy scalp all winter days. There are plenty of anti-dandruff solutions available out there.

Selsun Blue Naturals Anti Dandruff Hair Shampoo is a great product to keep your scalp dandruff-free this winter. It contains aloe, 8 intensive moisturizers, and botanicals, plus Vitamins B5 and E to control dandruff and re-hydrate hair.

Olive Oil Hair Therapy to Maintain Moisture in Your Hair

Like our body, our hair needs to remain well hydrated in order to stay healthy. Massage your hair, from roots to the bottom, with olive oil before your bedtime. Wear a shower cap to retain the moisture in your hair while sleeping. Repeat this treatment once in a week for quality results.

Follow these overnight hair treatments and get ready to flaunt your gorgeous-looking hair!

Fill Out Gaunt Cheeks and Lost Volume With Dermal Filler Treatment

The more we age, the more we notice the changes happening to our skin, and with the onset of time, many ageing effects happen that can make us look tired and less youthful. Ageing causes the facial skin to sag, and gravity will pull the skin on the cheek downwards. The fat pad slide off the cheek bone into the face, which gives the effect of sunken cheeks, on and below the cheek bones.

We tend to define an attractive face by its smooth, round contours and high cheekbones. Older skin loses fat and collagen, which causes a change of the facial contour, resulting in hollowed cheeks, sagging skin and wrinkles, leading to an overly aged, drawn appearance.

Once upon a time only a facelift or cheek implants could help with restoring facial volume, but these days a number of effective, non-surgical treatments are available. Ageing leads to loss of definition on the cheeks and jaw-line and you might notice shadows around the cheek bone that’s associated with loss of fat, but dermal filler injections will allow you to subtly control your looks.

The most common areas treated are:

  • The cheeks – to add volume and contour the face
  • The nasolabial folds – the nose to mouth lines
  • The glabella lines – between the eyebrows
  • The lips – adding shape and volume
  • The chin and jaw-line – adding definition.

Dermal fillers are ideal for smoothing away facial lines and wrinkles, creating fuller lips and shaping facial contours like the cheeks and chin. Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s own supply of hyaluronic acid, and these fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the lines and wrinkles and giving a softer natural look.

  • Procedure Time – 20 – 30 Minutes
  • Downtime – 1 Day
  • Back To Work – Next Day
  • Duration Of Results – 9 – 12 Months
  • Anaesthetic – Local
  • Results Seen – Immediate

Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of hyaluronic acid which is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. A topical anaesthetic cream gets applied, if needed, to make treatments more comfortable and we mix a little anaesthetic into the filler, making it a fairly painless procedure.People seek cheek augmentation to correct flatness, asymmetry, or to improve the overall balance of the facial shape. The cheek filler treatment plumps up the apples of the cheeks and sculpts the cheek bones. This instantly restores your face to a youthful appearance.
