How to Reduce The Appearance of “Turkey Neck”

Because the skin is so sensitive, your neck is often the first place to show signs of aging. We always think to take good care of our face to hide wrinkles and sagging skin, but what can we do to reverse the effects of gravity between our chest and our jaw?

Here are a few things you can do to reduce the look of “turkey neck”, or the sagging skin at the front of your neck:

Strengthen

First of all, you need to remember that underneath those layers of skin are muscles that need care and attention. Our muscles naturally weaken with age so we need to put extra effort in strengthening them to support the skin on top. Regular neck exercises not only build muscle and build elasticity in the skin, they also improve blood circulation and give the skin a firmer appearance. Stronger muscles work to diminish the appearance of folds and wrinkles while preventing the development of new ones.

Chew

You should always chew many times before swallowing. This is an easy way to control how much food goes into your body (and how many calories!), and is the first step in weight control. Large weight gain can easily attribute to an unappealing neck, also it’s common for pockets of fat to form quickly in this area. Second, it is a natural way for you to pre-digest your food before it enters your stomach. Third, chewing works the jaw muscles and tones your face from cheek to clavicle.

Exfoliate

Anyone who is concerned with the look of aging will tell you to exfoliate 2-3 times per week. Every day the neck is exposed to sun, wind, and air pollution, and these elements quickly build up a foundation of old cells. Using a semi-rough cloth or a loofah to remove dead skin cells makes way for the growth of new cells and promotes healthy skin development. A neck free from dead skin cells will look younger, plumper, and have a naturally healthy glow.

Skin Care

Protecting and caring for your skin is ongoing and everyone should use a skin care product that is specific to their needs. Not everyone has the same skin type which is why they need to consult with a medical skin care expert.

Laser Treatment For Hair Reduction A Low Cost Treatment?

Laser Treatment For Hair Reduction A Low Cost Treatment? Hair reduction is considered to be a dreadful condition among all kinds of people. The main cause for hair reduction differs from heredity to nutritional deficiency. Other factors that can increase hair reduction are stress, drug abuse or liquor abuse, diet and scalp disorders. At first thinning of hair is noticed in the crown, which is a normal process of ageing. Suggestion: Consider your diet if you are worried about hair reduction. Fast food and meals that are high in carbs are the main culprits when it arrives to an imbalanced diet that will direct to hair that is unhealthy. To improve one’s hair, a lot of people now depend on laser treatment. Laser treatment is used in many places to improve the appearance of hair. Most people suffering from hair reduction are happy by the results of laser treatment. Suggestion: If you have thinning hair, buy products formulated especially for this condition. Shampoos and conditioners designed for normal hair usually provide no advantages to those who are experiencing a reduction of hair. Although laser treatment for hair reduction is available in many areas, the dermatologists are still in problem whether it is safe or not. Laser treatment for hair reduction is generally performed in exclusive hair clinics. In these clinics they are having large laser devices, which require at minimum some sittings for each month. Hence the use of laser treatment for hair reduction is questionable. Suggestion: It is always best to have a professional color your hair, instead of doing it yourself. Be sure that the stylist dyes your hair with foils, instead of a general all over dye. Hair transplantation can be performed if the laser treatment for hair reduction does not show results. In the male pattern baldness, hair transplantation can be performed. Hair reduction due to mishaps and operations can also be transplanted. Suggestion: If you have a calorie deficiency, hair reduction could be a symptom. You can rectify this by eating enough for your peak, weight, and age. In order to reduce the cost of laser treatment for hair reduction, a modern comb called laser comb is used to treat the hair reduction condition. The main advantage of laser comb is that it saves money on laser treatments. Laser comb is the modified laser treatment for hair reduction. This is the home version and low expense product when compared to Cosmetic Laser Devices. The laser treatment in hair clinics may cost hundreds of bucks for one sitting. But Laser comb is not expensive and approved by Fda as a cosmetic device for thickening hair appearance. Laser comb can be used as a laser treatment for hair reduction in combination with a normal treatment routine. Suggestion: If you have an illness diagnosed, it's essential to take good care of your entire body. If you are not taking your recommended medicines, or doing what your doctor is telling you, your body will start to work overtime to try and survive. Although laser comb is approved by the Fda for the purpose of hair thickening, now the Fda is conducting numerous trials giving approval for hair growth stimulation. Laser light treatment is being used for anti inflammatory effects and wound healing on the skin. Laser comb utilizes low level laser treatment (LLLT), which emits photo energy. Low-level laser treatment of hair reduction is painless and non-poisonous. By using laser comb, you can achieve more healthy, fuller, thicker hair. Normally men can’t take their eyes off you, but now women won’t!

How to Research a Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon

How to Research a Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon | Cosmetic Surgery | Scoop.it
A revision rhinoplasty means things didn’t turn out the way you expected. Researching a revision rhinoplasty is an important step to correcting the issue. Performing a revision rhinoplasty is not the same as a typical rhinoplasty. The list of specialists which you considered to perform your rhinoplasty might not look like the list of revision specialists. Consider the following before making your decision.

Look for Experience

A newly accredited rhinoplasty surgeon may be skilled, but it’s safer to find someone with experience. The one with experience has proven his or her skill, and has also seen different complications along the way. The more experience, the better, although beyond a threshold, there may not be as much difference in expertise. In initially contacting surgeons, specifically ask for the years of experience in performing rhinoplasty for the doctor actually conducting your procedure.

Ask for Referrals

If you personally know anyone who has had revision rhinoplasty, ask them for their experience. Otherwise, ask the doctor for before and after pictures of past clients. The best indicator of whether the surgeon can help you is if the surgeon shows you photos of a before and after for a client with the same issue as yours.

Ask for Recommendations

If you aren’t comfortable in vetting surgeons, consider taking the suggestions of someone you trust. Contact your family doctor or the rhinoplasty surgeon who performed your operation for a referral. A professional opinion may be a more direct way to find the surgeon that works for you.

Pay attention during the consultation

While you are discussing your issues with your surgeon, listen for cues that they understand your issue. If you leave the consultation without feeling confident that they’ll be able to resolve your issue, that’s a good sign that there is some miscommunication. You and doctor should be on the same page. You want this revision to be the last revision rhinoplasty for the same issue.

In addition to discussing the preferred outcome, you should also consider risks and possible suboptimal outcomes. Understand those risks, and compare them with what other specialists have discussed with you.

Get a second opinion

If you’re not comfortable with the advice from a consultation, consider seeing another specialist. If you find that independent surgeons are giving similar advice go with the surgeon who has had the best results.

A Few Things Never Change: Favored Plastic Surgery Procedures by Age: Pittsburgh PA

A Few Things Never Change: Favored Plastic Surgery Procedures by Age Plastic surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States and the transformative power compels thousands of men and women to go under the knife each year. Unlike most surgeries, cosmetic practices are not medically necessary which can make it hard to analyze the demographics. While each person's needs and wants differ for choosing a procedure, the most popular cosmetic surgeries can be categorised by age group. While trends in plastic surgery vary from year to year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 statistics report shows that some operations are frequently popular with particular age ranges. Here's why. Nose reshaping is wide-spread amongst 13-19 year-old clients, because the nose you were born with is the nose you will have forever. While other parts of the body will change given time or lifestyle habits, the contour and structure of your nose changes the least. The skin does thicken and the cartilage can lose its support, however typically, the defining features remain constant all through life. Girls and boys who are coming up to adulthood oftentimes decide on rhinoplasty to secure a new start or a whole new look as they start on milestones such as high school graduation or the start of university or college. On the other hand, breast enhancement is a popular procedure for those who have gone through adolescence: 20-29 year-olds. The breasts usually are fully formed by that age, and the size and shape are at a fixed point. Shifts in weight, child bearing and lifestyle (bra usage) could change breast size and shape but in an unpredictable way. This may be a period of time when image is really important to a lot of women, so they get larger breasts in order to boost their morale and balance the proportions of their new adult figures -Cosmetic Surgery.
