What Causes Acne?

What causes acne? One of the most common skin conditions seen by nearly all medical professionals is acne. While it is typically regarded as a disease that lingers only during adolescence, those who suffer from it know that the effects can last a lifetime. Not only are the papules and cysts that develop challenging to treat, but they can also cause severe scarring. Acne most commonly occurs on the face, but it can also occur on the neck, chest, back, and arms. Typically, there is an increase in acne occurrence and severity during the teenage years, and it is estimated that this can last for 5-10 years. Teenagers aren’t the only ones affected though! Acne can occur at any point in life and affects both men and women.

Should I Use A Toner?

Toners: Why You Should Rethink Abandoning Your Toner? To tone or not to tone, that is the question. Many people have been preached to that they need a toner.

Many people want a straight forward answer to the question “should I use a toner?” The answer, just depends. It depends on what type of ingredients the toner contains, the type of skin you have, and what other products you are using in your daily skin care routine.

What Do I Love Best About Retinol?

What do I love best about retinol? I’ve used a topical retinol, since a dermatologist recommended it, for my 30’s acne. Never having acne as a teenager and quite repulsed dealing with it and three small children, I decided over the counter medicine was not going to be enough and I was motivated. The doctor actually told me, “You’ll thank me later, because it’s also an anti-wrinkle medicine.”

Saline Isn’t Working! Is There Anything Else That Works For My Spider Veins?

Saline isn’t working! Is there anything else that works for my spider veins? First of all we are talking about Sclerotherapy- injecting veins in order to close them and make them disappear. It is the best way to get rid of spider veins. I have seen too often purple veins lasered and not only have they not disappeared but they have taken pigment with it- permanently. Don’t get me wrong, laser works for very faint veins (red in color) but if they have dilated to purple it has gone too far. Even more advanced is the presence of a green feeder vein around a patch of purple veins. Those cannot be closed with Saline.
