Managing acne with the help of laser therapy

advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Acne can affect anyone, from adolescents at puberty to adults. People are nowadays opting for a wide range of Acne scar treatment including antibiotics, herbal medications and laser therapies. Some of them are based on scientific evidence and use proven substances for removing acne, while some do not have any scientific base. Still people try their luck with such treatments. They go to bed with their faces covered in lemon slices, toothpaste and so on. And no wonder: the results aren’t so impressive. Here are some popular treatments for acne:

Antibiotics for acne:

Most patients rely on antibiotics, either in a pill or in topical form, to battle acne. Antibiotics destroy the bacteria accumulated in the hair follicles, calm the body's immune response and thereby reduce redness and swelling.

However, this treatment may not work when the bacteria multiplies and grows in clogged follicles. Some bacteria reside in the layers of the skin and are hard to wipe out even if an invasive antibiotic comes on the scene.

Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid:

Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid can be effective in some patients, but don't work for everyone. Benzoyl peroxide helps reduce bacteria by oxygenating pores; but may also cause the skin to become excessively dry. Similarly, salicylic acid can also cause extreme dryness and peeling while clearing the dead cells from the surface of the skin.

Laser treatment:

A treatment that has emerged in recent years to battle acne with advanced technology is laser treatment. Not all lasers are created uniformly. The type of laser for acne treatment depends on several factors and each of them works in a different way. Let’s have a look at the basics of each type.

Beyond Polus Teeth Whitening, Yellow Tooth Bleaching

Beyond Polus teeth whitening is a tooth bleaching treatment for removal of yellow stains and discoloration.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:
Beyond polus Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a treatment that is aimed at making ones teeth stain free and whiter in color. It can be undertaken on a selected set of teeth or even all of them. While there were several problems associated with this procedure a few decades ago, the treatment has now become completely safe, with negligible risks of dentition damage.

Year on year consumption of foods that tend to stain one’s teeth, especially foods such as tea or coffee, which contain strong coloring pigments; or smoking cigarettes, causes the dental enamel to darken in color. This often results in unsightly, yellowed and stained teeth. Unfortunately, regular brushing does not stop this process, for it just helps in removing some of the extrinsic discoloration without actually achieving any deep penetration into the actual tooth structure. Ordinary household means are hence almost always never enough when you already have some staining.

BEYOND POLUS is a great treatment that allows you to bleach your teeth in a single session itself, to give you visible color improvements. The treatment involves the dental surfaces to be painted with a whitening gel, which is light activated using an accelerator. Though hydrogen peroxide is the main active ingredient in the whitening gel, there are certain other ingredients that are included to reduce teeth sensitivity to the treatment and to enhance the whitening results of the procedure. It is actually the light from the accelerator that allows the gel substances to penetrate deeper into the dentine, through the enamel. As the light from the BEYOND POLUS accelerator speeds up the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide molecules, the whitening process from this reaction is speeded up. This rapid oxidizing reaction removes pigmentation within a matter of minutes. Consequently, within just 45 minutes, one can see visibly whiter and pigmentation free teeth.

However, there are some indications and contraindications for the Beyond Polus tooth whitening procedure and they are as discussed below:

Teeth Whitening Indications

Aesthetic Reasons

Teeth whitening treatments can be used to remove the discoloration of teeth that is associated with age or eating habits. The treatment can also be used to lighten the teeth color shades when the discoloration has occurred due to the intake of certain drugs such as tetracycline’s or if the teeth get a mottled appearance due to dental fluorosis.

The treatment is indicated even when one requires an internal bleaching treatment to improve the appearance of the dead, almost black colored teeth. This requires a minimally invasive treatment method that does not cause any damage to the tooth tissues, something unlike the more damaging prosthodontics treatments, namely veneers and crowns.

Other indications of Beyond Polus teeth whitening:

Congenital discolorationMetabolic teeth yellowingSystemic teeth stainsStains caused by pharmacological factorsDental injury related discolorationDiscoloration due to haemolytic disease, porphyria and hepatitis.

Un guide pour le traitement des varices et varicosités

Les veines des jambes ont le rôle de faire circuler le sang vers le coeur et contre le sens de la gravité. Ils agissent comme des soupapes empêchant le sang de refluer. Si elles faiblissent, le sang reflue et stagne dans la veine.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Les veines des jambes ont le rôle de faire circuler le sang vers le coeur et contre le sens  de  la gravité. Ils agissent comme des soupapes empêchant  le sang de refluer. Si elles faiblissent, le sang reflue et stagne dans la veine. Cette congestion provoque un élargissement, les veines alors dilatées seront appelées varices ou varicosités en fonction de leur apparence et de leur taille.

Les varicosités sont de plus petite taille et sont généralement rouge ou bleu. Elles ressemblent à une toile d'araignée avec des lignes brisées et courtes . Les varices sont bleu-violet et légèrement surélevées au-dessus de la surface de la peau . Elles sont considérées comme des veines saillantes à l' intérieur de la jambe.

La sclérothérapie et le traitement des varices

La sclérothérapie est couramment utilisé à la fois pour le traitement des varicosités et des varices . Dans ce procédé, une solution est injectée dans la veine  pour empêcher l'écoulement du sang et la veine se transforme en tissu cicatriciel. La sclérothérapie ne nécessite pas d'anesthésie et peut être faite dans la consultation d’un médecin.

Le traitement au laser

Le laser pour les varices et varicosités est de plus en plus considéré comme une option de traitement efficace . Les lasers sont de haute précision et ne causent pas de dommages à une zone autre que celle qui est traité. Ce traitement est sûr et adapté à tous les types et couleurs de peau . Le traitement dure environ  de 15 à 20 minutes . Généralement , deux à cinq séances de traitement sont nécessaires , en fonction de la gravité du problème . Le laser pour varicosités provoque moins d'effets secondaires . Chez certains patients , la peau peut devenir rouge et gonflée au niveau du site de traitement. Mais , ces symptômes disparaissent en quelques jours.

Les types de lasers

Différents types de lasers sont utilisés pour traiter les varicosités et les varices . Les lasers de lumière jaune, systèmes de lumière intense pulsée et les lasers de lumière verte sont couramment utilisés pour ces cas.

La technique de fermeture

Cette méthode de traitement consiste à placer un tube ou un cathéter dans la veine  affectée. Le cathéter émet de l'énergie à radiofréquence qui provoque un rétrécissement et la fermeture  de la veine. Les veines saines entourant la veine affectée rétablissent la circulation normale du sang.

Les traitements actuels comme le laser pour les varices et les varicosités ont un taux de réussite plus élevé . La thérapie au laser est non invasive et aide les patients à éviter l'inconfort des incisions et des aiguilles . Les patients peuvent reprendre leurs activités habituelles immédiatement après le traitement . Le risque d'effets secondaires est également minime . Pour ces raisons , la thérapie au laser est la méthode la plus pratique pour le traitement des varices et des varicosités.

Thigh Lift Surgery – Thighplasty

advancemedicalsystems's insight:
Inner thigh lifts

Chunky and dimpled thighs are a problem for many women and even men. Thighplasty or thigh lift can help reduce excess fat and skin in the thigh and knee area, thereby resulting in more defined, slim and taut thighs that look great in mini-skirts, skinny jeans and bathing suits.

Modern thigh lift surgery of today aims at creating thighs that are a lot more proportionate to the abs, buttocks, and legs. Ideally, the trunk as well as outer thighs must form an hour-glass silhouette and indent towards the waist, along with a smooth outward curve towards the outer thighs. In the front, the thighs must appear smooth and showcase the underlying muscles. From the back, the thighs should stand apart from the buttocks and have a well-defined fold. The inner thighs must be flat and firm.

Both women and men who have flabby, saggy, and/or dimpled loose skin and tissue on their thighs can be good candidates for this body contouring treatment. A lot of people who have lost a massive amount of weight after bariatric surgery can also benefit from a thigh lift to get rid of the excess flab and fat in this area.

Permanent laser hair removal and reduction by Soprano XL

Permanent laser hair removal & reduction by Soprano XL from areas like upper lip, bikini, back, underarms, chest, legs, chin, neck, hands, abdomen & buttocks.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:
General Information for Permanent laser hair removal and reduction by Soprano XL

 

People are always on the lookout for different methods of hair removal to eliminate the unwanted hair from their bodies. The markets today are flooded with different methods of hair removal and a wide range of hair removal creams and products. Hair removal creams smell awful and include harmful chemicals that can damage the skin. Hair depilation like shaving and trimming only removes surface hair. Waxing is amongst the most preferred methods for hair removal, but it is painful and does not provide permanent hair removal. Furthermore, the hair which grows back is a lot thicker than before. Electrolysis is another popular method of hair removal, but is quite a painful method and involves being pricked by several needles.

Amongst all these hair removal methods, the laserhair removal procedure has emerged as the most effective and popular procedure for hair removal. Laser hair removal procedure can eliminate body hair on almost all areas of the body. The procedure is effective when used on the face, neck, chest, underarms, back, stomach, hands and legs. Women often use laser hair removal procedure for underarms hair and to make their bikini line appear more attractive, smooth and hair free.

Laserhair removal using the Soprano XL technology provides completely painless and permanent hair removal. Most conventional treatments for permanent hair removal destroy hair follicles by making use of large energy bursts on the area of treatment, but the Soprano XL technology is unique as it delivers quick and low heat pulses. As a result, the pain is much lower and there is a lower risk of side effects.

The Soprano XL’s technology can treat any area on the body in a safe and gentle way. The procedure involves heating the hair follicles in the sub dermal layers of the skin by using short pulses of laser energy. In spite of the internal heating, patients do not feel any discomfort because of the additional cooling mechanism which cools the heated skin surface. This ensures that patient’s are comfortable throughout the hair removal procedure. Since the hair removal procedure does not involve any excessive dermal heating, there is no need for anesthesia, topical numbing agents or cooling agents.

9 Ways to Keep Spider Veins at Bay

advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Spider veins are tiny blue or red colored veins that are shaped like a tree branch. They mostly develop at a later stage in life and appear on the calves and ankles. More than 50 % of adults deal with spider veins on legs. The disorder is more common in women as compared to men. Although it might not be entirely possible to avoid them, there are certain things that you can do to inhibit their onset. Learn about the causes this disorder and what you can do to prevent them from forming.

Tips to Prevent Spider Veins

Avoid standing or sitting for long periods. In case your job requires you to be on your feet throughout the day, break up the time you stand by taking a walk at lunch, or even just walking around the office.Since the condition is caused due to poor blood circulation, it is essential to avoid positions that obstruct circulation. Avoid crossing your legs while sitting. Crossing the legs for long periods obstructs blood circulation to the legs, which in turn causes vein walls to weaken and ugly veins to form.Elevate your feet by using a stool while sitting down. Raising your feet to 6 to 12 inches will improve circulation and regulate blood flow in the veins. It even reduces swelling in the calves and ankles, which in turn reduces the risk of developing this condition.Wear a low grade compression hose. It is available at most drugstores. A compression hose supports the blood vessels and improves circulation, thus making the legs less swollen and achy.Avoid wearing high heels, particularly if your job requires you to stand or sit for long periods of time. High heels put excess pressure on the legs and restrict the circulation of blood to the legs. This in turn leads to the formation of these veins.Another way of preventing this disorder is keeping your weight under control. Follow a balanced diet and maintain a weight that is appropriate for your body type and height. This reduces excess stress on the legs and blood vessels.Restrict the intake of salt as it causes water retention (edema) in the body, which in turn puts pressure on the veins. Avoid junk and processed foods as they are loaded with sodium (salt). Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean meat.Exercise regularly as it helps improve blood circulation and lets you maintain a healthy weight. Focus on exercises which keep the legs and feet moving, to prevent the appearance of these unsightly veins.Avoid a sedentary lifestyle as it can lead to this disorder. Sitting for long periods of time obstructs circulation and makes it harder for the veins in the legs to carry blood. This excess strain can result in spider veins on legs.

Dealing with The Problem

There are several treatments available. Laser treatment for spider veins is considered as one of the most effective options to treat superficial veins. During laser spider vein removal, an intense pulse of laser light is directed into the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the vein and destroys it. Over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, the vein gets reabsorbed by the body and permanently disappears.

Laser for spider veins is quick, easy, non-invasive and painless as compared to other procedures. The majority of patients don’t require any type of anesthesia, but for those who anticipate pain, the physician will apply a topical anesthetic 20 minutes before the procedure. Most present day lasers include a cooling system which makes the procedure relatively pain free. If you are considering laser for spider veins, fix up an appointment with a specialist to know more about the procedure.

A Guide to Treatment of Varicose veins and Spider veins

Using laser for varicose veins and spider veins is increasingly considered an effective treatment option. Laser therapy works by sending strong bursts of light onto the vein, which makes the vein fade and disappear slowly.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:

The veins in the legs have to pump the blood towards the heart against the force of gravity. They act as one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards. If this one-way valve becomes weak, the blood flows back into the vein, stagnates there and becomes congested. This congestion causes the vein to become abnormally enlarged. Such enlarged veins are called spider veins / varicose veins based on their appearance and size.


Spider veins are smaller in size than varicose veins and are usually red or blue in color. They look like a spider web with their short jagged lines. Varicose veins are bluish purple in color and are slightly raised above the skin surface. They are seen as bulging veins on the back of the calves or the inside of the leg.

Sclerotherapy for spider vein and varicose vein treatment

Sclerotherapy is commonly used for both spider vein treatment and for varicose veins. In this method, a solution is injected into the vein that causes the walls of the affected vein to swell and seal shut. This helps to stop the flow of blood and turns the vein into scar tissue. Sclerotherapy does not require anesthesia and can be done in the doctor's office.

Laser treatment

Using laser for varicose veins and spider veins is increasingly considered an effective treatment option. Laser therapy works by sending strong bursts of light onto the vein, which makes the vein fade and disappear slowly. Lasers work directly and accurately and hence, do not cause damage to any area other than the one being treated. This therapy is safe and suitable for all skin types and colors. The therapy lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes. Generally, two to five treatment sessions are needed, depending on the severity of the problem. Laser for spider veins causes fewer side effects. In some patients, the skin may become red and swollen at the site of treatment. But, these symptoms disappear within a few days.

Types of lasers

Different types of lasers are used to treat spider veins and also varicose veins. Yellow light lasers, intense pulsed light systems and green light lasers are the commonly used lasers for these conditions.  

Closure technique

This method of treatment involves placing a tube or a special catheter into the affected vein. The catheter sends out radiofrequency energy that causes the vein walls to shrink and shut completely. Later, the healthier veins surrounding the affected vein restore the normal flow of blood. Slight bruising may occur at the site of procedure in some cases.

Current treatments like laser for varicose veins and spider veins have a higher rate of success. Laser therapy is non invasive and helps patients avoid the discomfort of incisions and needles. Patients can return to their routine activities immediately after the treatment. The risk of side effects is also minimal. For these reasons, laser therapy is the most preferred method for treating varicose veins and spider veins.

7 Things You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal

advancemedicalsystems's insight:

A lot of people who are frustrated with visible stubbles, ingrowths, and the pain caused by waxing or shaving probably think about undergoing laser hair removal. The procedure is believed to permanently remove hair in the treated areas, promising a silky smooth and fur-free future. However, these claims aren’t necessarily true. There are several things you must know about the procedure to evaluate whether laser hair removal is really worth it for you. Here’s some information to help you weigh the pros and cons.

Results Aren’t Actually Permanent

Laser treatment for hair removal involves passing a beam of laser light through the skin to every individual hair follicle and damaging it with the intense heat. It is meant to prevent the follicle from producing future hair growth. However, despite the claims, laser hair removal is not permanent. Lasers slow down hair re-growth, but as hair grows in phases, it takes a number of treatment sessions to achieve an extended period of no hair growth.

Skin & Hair Color Matter

When it comes to removing hair, skin and hair color matter because the laser targets pigment. The American Academy of Dermatology advises that lasers work best for people with light skin and dark hair. This is because dark hair easily stands out against light skin, and the laser can target it more effectively.

The Pain

The treatment hurts, but the pain is minor. The majority of patients only experience mild to moderate discomfort. The sensation is similar to the feeling of being snapped with a rubber band. The level of discomfort correlates with the density and thickness of hair in the treated area. If you have darker skin, the skin absorbs more energy from the laser, which can add to the discomfort. For small areas like upper lips, the procedure and pain will only last a few minutes. However, for larger areas like legs laser hair removal can take several hours.

Several & Ongoing Treatments

Laser treatment for hair removal is not a one-shot procedure. It requires multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. As hair begins to re-grow over a period of time, you will need additional touch up procedures. Initially, you’ll need between 4 to 6 treatments, spaced 4 - 8 weeks apart. It takes about 2 or 3 weeks after treatment for hair to start falling out; it’s not immediate.

Be Selective with Where You Go

Similar to any other cosmetic procedure, before you sign yourself up to undergo treatment, first make sure the procedure is being performed by a qualified esthetician supervised by a physician. Remember, laser treatment does have side effects. Hence, make sure that you’re under the care of a trusted physician, in case a problem arises.

The Side Effects

As with any other dermatologic procedure, laser hair removal involves some side effects. Most commonly, patients experience discomfort, swelling, itching, and slight redness in the treated area for a couple days following the procedure. You might even experience acne and skin discoloration, particularly if you have tanned or dark skin. In severe cases, patients might experience blistering or bacterial infections.   

The Cost

Laser hair removal cost varies depending upon the size and number of areas being treated. Smaller areas like the bikini area, above the lips and underarms hair removal are less expensive than larger areas like the legs. Laser hair removal cost generally ranges from $200 - $400 per treatment for smaller areas, and up to $500 - $1000 for large areas.

Eyelid shadow - Permanent Cosmetic Makeup

advancemedicalsystems's insight:
Permanent eyelid shadow

I never wear eye makeup, and it's not just because am a guy. The idea of using a pointy instrument for applying pigment so close to theeyeballs sounds verydaunting. So,I can completely understand how some women consider taking full advantage of a permanent solution to avoid such apotentially unsafe and time-consuming task on a daily basis. In addition, thereisthe added advantage of never having to worry about reapplying makeup after sweating at the gym, swimming,or anytime later in the day.So, what could go wrong?Well, it seems like there’s plenty.

Since the early 1980’s, cosmetic tattooingor Micropigmentation has been used to create "permanent makeup". The technique was originally developed to cater to alopeciaor hair lossof the eyebrows. Since then, the procedure has evolved to include cosmetic solutions for burn victimsand cancer survivors, as well as patients with arthritis, Parkinson's disease, or other disorders that make it difficult to apply makeup. The procedure has also gained a lot of popularitywith women who justwant to lessen the amount of time spent on getting ready in the morning. The most common type of permanent makeup involves eyelid tattooing, whereineye shadow or eyeliner is simulated by the injected ink.

Tout ce qu’il faut savoir à propos de la thérapie LED pour traiter l'acné et les rides

Beaucoup de solutions aux problèmes dermatologiques se sont avancées, que cela soit de simples crèmes ou gommages, mais aussi de traitement de haute technologie comme la LED pour traiter l'acné et les rides.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Beaucoup de solutions aux problèmes dermatologiques se sont avancées, que cela soit de simples crèmes ou gommages, mais aussi de traitement de haute technologie comme la LED pour traiter  l'acné et les rides. Cependant, malgré tout ce que l’on a pu en dire, ce traitement n'est pas la meilleure option pour traiter les troubles de la peau comme l'acné et les rides.

LED doit être un compliment de soin lors d’un traitement particulier. Comme pour tout autre traitement de la peau , il y a des avantages et des inconvénients qui devraient être considérés avant son utilisation .Voyons ces points ensembles.

La thérapie pour l'acné

Comment cela marche:

Les longueurs d’onde spécifiques de la lumière bleues ciblent des bactéries responsables de l’apparition de l’acné. La lumière provoquent des radicaux oxydant sans causer de dommages à la peau saine.

Pourquoi devriez-vous considérer cette thérapie:

Elle s’est avérée efficace pour éliminer les bactéries qui causent l'acnéAdaptée pour l'acné inflammatoire légère à modéréeRéduction des risques d'effets secondaires comme la sécheresse ou desquamation qui peuvent se produire avec des produits contenant du peroxyde de benzoyleOption intéressante pour les personnes ayant la peau sensible et incapables de tolérer les désinfectants topiquesUne procédure sans douleur , sans temps d’interruption

Pourquoi ne pas la considérer:

Plusieurs séances de traitement  nécessaires :4 par semainePas efficace contre l'acné kystique, les points blancs ou noirsAssez cher (en moyenne 40 euros par session)Les résultats à long terme ne sont pas assurés.La thérapie de lumière rouge pour les rides

Comment cela marche:

Ici, les longueurs d'onde de la lumière rouge peuvent améliorer la barrière de la peau à conserver les éléments clés dont elle a besoin pour guérir . On croit aussi que les LED de lumière rouge stimulent la production de collagène sain et ciblent des cytokines  pro-inflammatoires censées jouer un rôle dans l'acné chronique.

Pourquoi devriez-vous la considérer:

Peut aider à réduire les signes du vieillissement et peut-être un meilleur choix pour les personnes aux prises avec des rides et de l’acnéFaible risque d'effets secondaires ,Pas d'arrêt requis

Pourquoi elle n’est pas à considérer:

Plusieurs séances de traitementPas de recherches approfondiesLes résultats à long terme sont inconnusN’affectent pas les bactéries causant l'acnéLe coût peut varier de 50 à 200 euros voir plus , en fonction de l'appareil et le protocole de traitement choisi par le dermatologue

Conseils

Il est fortement recommandé avant de décider l’achat d’un dispositif de LED, de consulter un dermatologue.

Ces appareils exigent le port de lunettes protectrices qui protègeraient des effets nuisibles aux yeux.

Les produits de soins de la peau tels que le peroxyde de benzoyle, la trétinoïne , l'acide salicylique et d'autres options médicales sont le traitement de première ligne .  D’autres traitements anti-âge tels que le laser Fraxel , Ulthera ou IPL (Lumière intense pulsée)ont montré leur efficacité en tant que thérapies .

LipoSonix es un procedimiento no invasivo que utiliza ultrasonidos de alta intensidad focalizados para destruir las células de grasa, situadas por debajo de la piel. El ultrasonido de alta intensidad  concentra su energía de gran alcance en la piel. La energía de ultrasonido penetra en el tejido graso muy profundo para destruirlo. Así, destruye  las células de grasa que se van disolviendo. El cuerpo después de esto, procede a su eliminación durante un período de 8 a 12 semanas.

LipoSonix reduce el volumen quemando la grasa localizada con una energía de ultrasonidos de alta en el problema de la zona, sin causar ningún daño a la piel, tejidos y órganos circundantes. Después de descomponerlas, los macrófagos envuelven las células adiposas dañadas para facilitar su eliminación. Los pacientes comienzan después a notar una disminución de su volumen.

LipoSonix es diferente de otros procedimientos reductores de grasas y celulitis, ya que es un tratamiento no invasivo que no requiere tiempo de inactividad. LipoSonix ayuda a deshacerse de la grasa alrededor de la cintura (estómago y las manijas del amor) sin necesidad de cirugía. Los resultados del tratamiento se ven mejor  en 8 o 12 semanas.

A diferencia de los tratamientos reductores de grasa de varias sesiones, LipoSonix reduce la cintura de 2,5 cm (equivalente a una talla) en una sola hora de tratamiento. LipoSonix se utiliza normalmente para el tratamiento del abdomen, las manijas del amor, la espalda, los muslos, las grasas del sostén, las caderas, las nalgas y otras áreas problemáticas, resistentes a la dieta y al ejercicio.

Liposonix es  un tratamiento sin dolor, comparado a  la liposucción y otros procedimientos para la eliminación de grasa.  A veces los pacientes pueden sentir  frío, calor, hormigueo y una molestia leve. Liposonix no requiere ningún tiempo de recuperación después del tratamiento y los pacientes pueden reanudar sus actividades rutinarias poco tiempo después del tratamiento. Los efectos secundarios del tratamiento  como contusión leve, enrojecimiento, dolor e hinchazón son de menor importancia y temporales. Los resultados del tratamiento son definitivos si se combinan con una dieta saludable y una rutina de ejercicio. Liposonix no produce cicatriz y puede perfectamente ser repetido si necesario en un futuro.

advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Pain is a feeling of discomfort which often involves sensory experiences caused due to physical injury, tissue damage or trauma. Different kinds of pain include sciatica, headaches, back pain or dorsalgia, stomach pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and so on. Pain can be caused due to many reasons. For instance, spraining your muscle while walking or playing will cause muscle pain, spraining your back while lifting something heavy could cause low back pain, etc. There are many ways to get relief from pain which include taking pain relief medication, massages and physical therapy.

Taking prescription or over the counter medication is a very popular and common way to get relief from pain, illness or soreness in the joints and muscles. Today, you will find that there are many reputed brands available in the market. You can also find many generic brands available, which are much cheaper than brand name medication. Consulting a doctor is the best way to find out which medication is best for the pain you are experiencing. You can also seek advice from a pharmacist while buying over the counter pain relief medication.

Massage is another alternative which can prove beneficial for pain relief. Massages can help reduce chronic back pain and the pain caused due to sore muscles and joints. In case you have sprained you wrist or ankle, rubbing the area and exerting light pressure will help reduce the pain. Massage can help reduce the pain caused due to sore muscles around the shoulders and can also provide neck pain relief. Similarly, a physical therapist in a pain relief center can help reduce lower back pain, using massage techniques.

A change in your diet can also help reduce chronic pain caused due to nutritional deficiency. Sometimes, drinking a glass of water could help reduce a headache in case the headache is caused due to dehydration. Including enough vitamin C in the diet can help reduce joint swelling caused due to vitamin C deficiency. Similarly, eating bananas can help swollen joints caused because of potassium deficiency.

Other natural, effective and risk free methods that can help in pain alleviation include aromatherapy, chiro-practice, homeopathy, yoga, acupressure, tai-chi and acupuncture.

Common Questions about Skin Photo Rejuvenation

advancemedicalsystems's insight:

What is the meaning of photo rejuvenation?

It is a type of skin rejuvenation in which intense pulsed light (IPL) is used. This light is absorbed by red as well as brown pigments present in the skin. The energy of IPL gets delivered to epidermis and also dermis layer but there is no damage caused to epidermis or the superficial layer since a chilled crystal remains in contact with the skin and prevents any damage. Therefore there is practically no downtime with this skin photo rejuvenation treatment.

There are several benefits of this procedure which include:

Decrease in brown spots that are caused by sun damageReduction in fine lines andImprovement in skin texture

Which areas are treated using this treatment?

Normally, this treatment is used for areas such as face, hands, chest, neck and shoulders.

Does it treat Rosacea?

Yes but it is not a cure for the problem. This therapy can significantly improve Rosacea’s symptoms covering inflammatory acne, enlarged pores and excessive flushing. Results are clearly visible after a few sessions of this treatment.

What happens during the treatment?

Prior to the treatment, your doctor will apply a cold gel over the treatment area and you will be provided with protective eyewear. Afterwards, bright pulses of intense pulsed light will be delivered over skin surface to cover the whole area being treated.

How much time procedure takes?

Each of the sessions is normally of 30 to 45 minute duration. After the session is over you will experience warm feeling over the treated location but that would subside within a short period of time and you can head back to doing your normal tasks almost immediately.

What to expect after the treatment?

Immediately after the session is over, you will see mild redness in the area which normally goes off after some hours. Brown spots will also darken but in a couple of days these dark spots will develop flaky cover and gradually shed to reveal the new fresh skin.

How many sessions are required?

Generally 5 sessions are required which are spaced at an interval of 3 weeks. However, number of sessions required may vary from person to person and how many sessions you will require will be decided during the preliminary consultation.

How long do the results last?

If you use good sun protection cream such as SPF 30 with a well planned skincare routine then the results will last for several years. However, you need to understand that skin damage you see are due to prolonged sun exposure over the years and its manifestation in the form of brown spots or enlarged pores will continue. For these reasons, you may require maintenance treatment at an interval of every three to four months or one year, depending upon your particular situation.

Which precautions are necessary while procedure is on?

At the time your photo rejuvenation sessions are in process, avoid sun baths (tanning) as during this time the skin is more vulnerable to reactions from intense light.

What side effects I should be aware of?

There are generally very few side effects such as redness in the area where pulsed light is applied. In very rare situation there would be side effects like formation of blisters in the area.

FUE Hair Transplant to stop baldness by follicular extraction

FUE hair transplant is a unique hair loss treatment which helps stop baldness in men with the help of micro follicular unit extraction technology.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:
General Information for FUE Hair Transplant to stop baldness by follicular extraction

 

Follicular units are bundles of hair containing 2 to 4 hairs, which can be used in a hair transplant procedure. If you have notices extreme hair loss, FUEor Follicular unit Extraction can be used as a baldness treatment for surgical hair restoration. Under this procedure, the follicular units are extracted one at a time from the patient who is undergoing the hair treatment. These hair follicular units are then used in a hair transplant surgery and it is this follicular unit transplantation that results in hair growth in the patient. This is an extremely tricky procedure that requires the surgeons to be skillful and as the procedure also involves considerable money and time, very few surgeons worldwide practice it on a full time basis.

How Does the FUE Procedure Work?

A tiny round punch like machine of a punch size of 1mm or even lesser is used to extract follicular units from the donor patient’s chosen donor areas; these areas are considered to be bald resistant. From these areas, 1 to 4 hair follicular units are extracted and then transplanted to the bald area under treatment. As each individual follicular unit needs to be carefully extracted from the hair rots, this is a highly time intensive procedure with a surgeon managing only about 500-600 FU grafts per day. One can then easily understand why the cost per graft if high in this procedure. The donor area hair is usually cut short so that the surgeon’s visibility is not hampered during FU extraction.

Once the follicular unit has been extracted and the hair has been removed using a forceps, the small hole that is left behind heals in a few days time. As this tiny wound contacts during the process of healing, the resultant scarring becomes smaller and less noticeable with each day’s healing. But the donor area is definitely sprinkled with tiny white scars that are usually not noticeable to the naked eyes.

Advantages and Disadvantages of FUE:

Less healing time for the donor area as opposed to other methods such as strip excision method.As FUE charges are on a per graft basis, the treatment is often very expensive.FUE procedure is minimally invasive and hence the side effects of invasive procedures such as lasting scars, etc are not that much of a problem.With FUE there is a risk of sub optimal growth, which happens when the extracted follicular unit grafts are kept out of the body for longer.

FUE Indications:

As FUE does not leave a long, linear scar like strip extraction does, the patient can wear his or her hair short even on the donor area, as the scars are often not visible to the naked eyes. As the down or healing time with FUE if much lower, you can get back to your routine activities much sooner withFUE. FUE can even be used on patients who have very tight scalps of who have not healed properly from a traditional strip harvesting hair transplantation treatment. FUE donor areas are not limited to the head and hair can even be taken from the beard or other areas if the hair in those regions fit certain parameters.

If you are treating a very large area with FUE harvesting, you may be required to shave off the entire donor area in order to perform these typically time consuming, large sessions. This may be viewed as a typical short-term cosmetic problem for people undergoing such a treatment.

Skin rejuvenation for wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne & facelift

Skin rejuvenation treatment using fractional resurfacing for skin tightening, facelift & problems such as wrinkles, acne, sagging skin & enlarged pores from Intracel.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:

Intracel is a pioneering skin treatment technique that makes use of unique insulated Fractional radiofrequency micro-needles in order to treat the targeted areas of skin through powerful penetration without harming the epidermis. It is specifically used for the treatment of acne and for improving scarring caused due to acne. Intracel is also used for skin tightening, facelift, treatment of wrinkles, visible stretch marks caused after pregnancy, enlarged pores and telangiectasia in facial rejuvenation.

Collagen, the protein that constitutes the core structural component of the dermis or lower layer of skin, is very essential for skin elasticity. By transforming the electro-energy into thermal energy, the micro-needles heat the deeper dermis and leave the tissues unaffected. Thus allowing the collagen fibers to tighten up and reconstruct, by stimulating fibroblasts. As a result of this, the damaged cells are denatured, the acne bacteria are destroyed and other causes for acne are also eliminated. With ageing skin, the body tissues become weak because of changes in cellular protein and gradual loss of collagen therefore, stimulating the production of collagen by targeting these cells has shown a reduction in wrinkles as well as an improvement in skin texture.

Intraceltreatment is different from other laser and non surgical treatments. In this treatment, the electro energy is transformed into thermal energy, which is transferred from the needlepoint in order to cause coagulation as well as denaturalization of the surrounding dermis.

Prior to the procedure, the doctor will apply a topical or local anesthetic on the treatment area in order to make the treatment more comfortable. Following this, the device is applied on the surface of the skin, releasing the needles to deliver short bursts of radiofrequency energy, while moving it across the treatment area. The fractional radiofrequency micro-needling generates selective heating in the deeper dermis and leaves the columns of tissue in between, undamaged. As it delivers energy deeper into the dermis, greater levels of energy can be delivered into the target area at the point of insertion without causing damage like hyper-pigmentation or burning to the epidermis.

The treatment time required is only 10 to 15 minutes and patients need approximately 1 to 3 treatment sessions spaced at 35 to 45 days apart. Following treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling, but these side effects are generally mild and fade away soon. 

Following Intracel treatment, aftercare plays a vital role in reducing recovery time. Aftercare involves, keeping the treatment area clean after the initial treatment session, covering the treatment area using a cool towel and a moist mask for 10-15 minutes. Use sunscreen in order to avoid pigmentation caused due to sun exposure and a non-chemical cream with an SPF of 10-30.

People who have any skin infections or diseases excluding acne, any bleeding disorders, or skin malignancy, patients on anticoagulants and pregnant women should not consider using Intracel treatment for skin rejuvenation.

What Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Do For You?

Laser resurfacing removes the top skin layer with precision and new skin cells form during the healing process, thereby making the skin firmer, tighter and younger.
advancemedicalsystems's insight:

If you smoke, you must stop for 2 weeks before and after the procedure as smoking delays healing. If you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters, the doctor may prescribe antibiotic medication in advance to prevent bacterial infections.

What are the Risks?

Potential risks of laser resurfacing include:

ScarringBurns or injuries from the laser's heatChanges in skin pigmentation, including areas of lighter or darker skinBacterial infectionReactivation of herpes cold sores

What to Expect During and After Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing is performed by a trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon. It is an outpatient procedure, which means you'll not have to stay overnight. The doctor may treat your entire face, or treat wrinkles around your mouth, eyes, or forehead individually. For a smaller area, the doctor will numb the area using a local anesthetic. If your whole face is being treated, you may be administered with general anesthesia. Treating just parts of the face takes around 30-45 minutes. A full-face procedure takes up to 2 hours.

After the procedure, the doctor will bandage the treatment area. After 24 hours, you will have to clean the treated area 4 to 5 times a day and apply an ointment or petroleum jelly to prevent scab formation. You might feel an itching or stinging sensation for 12 to 72 hours after the procedure. After 5 to 7 days of the procedure, your skin will turn dry and peel.

Swelling after laser resurfacing is normal. The doctor may prescribe steroids in order to manage any swelling around the eyes. Depending upon the problem that was treated, healing usually takes 10 to 21 days. Once the skin has healed, you can wear oil-free makeup to minimize any redness, which generally fades in 2 to 3 months. During the healing process after treatment, it is very important to use a "broad-spectrum" sunscreen to protect your skin against damaging ultraviolet rays. It is also important to keep the new skin well moisturized.

Cost of Laser Resurfacing

As per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for laser resurfacing was about $2,300 in 2011. However, the cost can widely vary, depending upon where the procedure is performed. Since laser skin resurfacing is considered as a cosmetic procedure, most insurance companies don’t cover it. There could be an exception if you undergo the procedure to remove precancerous growths or modify scars on your skin.
