  • When to see the qualified doctor?
  • Your skin should start to feel better quickly. If
    these changes do not bring relief, you may want
    to see the qualified doctor. Very dry skin can
    require a prescription ointment or cream. Dry
    skin also can be a sign of a skin condition that
    needs treatment. The qualified doctor can examine
    your skin and explain what can help reduce your

  • Applying sunscreen to hand Apply sunscreen every

    acne flare, it may seem natural to scrub your
    skin. Don't! Scrubbing can worsen any skin
  • Wash your face regularly and gently when
    waking, before bed, and after sweating. Washing

    lasting results than with a skin-lightening

    spots. During this procedure, the qualified
    doctor removes the cells in the age spots by
    freezing them. As the skin heals, it looks

yourself gently pulling back skin on your face
when you look in the mirror and wishing it would
stay there? A surgical lift, such as a facelift
or eyelid surgery, will give you the most
dramatic results, but youll find plenty of other
skin-tightening options. These other options
offer less downtime and lower cost. Another perk
Many can be used on just about any part of your
body that needs a lift.What are your other
options?Subtle tightening As for the claim
that a cream or lotion can lift sagging skin,
qualified doctors say, thats not possible. A
cream or lotion cannot penetrate the skin deeply
enough to do this.You can undergo the procedure
of IONIC PENETRATION Ionic penetration is the
procedure in which skin nutrients are made to
penetrate your skin safely and without any pain.
The procedure takes about 10 20 minutes. It is
also called Office Procedure.Modest tightening
and lifting Non-invasive skin tightening
procedures These procedures are called
non-invasive because they leave your skin intact.
You wont have a puncture wound, incision, or raw
skin afterward. You may see some temporary
redness and swelling, but thats usually the only
sign that you had a procedure.
Laser treatment Some lasers can send heat deep
into the skin without wounding the top layer of
your skin. These lasers are used to tighten skin
all over the body and can be especially helpful
for tightening loose skin on the belly and upper
arms. You may need 3 to 5 treatments to get
results, which gradually appear between 2 and 6
months after the last treatment.
  • Radiofrequency During this treatment, your
    doctor places a device against your skin, which
    heats the tissue beneath.
  • Most people have 1 treatment and feel some
    tightening right away. It takes time for your
    body to make collagen, so youll see the best
    results in about 6 months. Some people benefit
    from having more than 1 treatment.
  • Results can last 2 to 3 years with the right skin

When you look in the mirror, do you feel that
your skin would look more attractive if you could
shrink those large pores? Theres actually a
lot you can do to make pores less noticeable.
Much of this, you can do on your own Heres what
qualified doctor will recommend. Use only
non-comedogenic skin care products and
makeup. The word non-comedogenic means the
product wont clog your pores. When pores clog,
they expand, which can make your pores look more
  • Cleanse your face twice a day
  • Clogged pores or an oily complexion can make
    pores look larger. Cleansing twice daily can
    unclog pores, prevent clogged pores, and reduce
  • When cleansing your face
  • Using a cleanser with salicylic acid may help.
    Studies show salicylic acid can unclog pores.
    Some cleansers containing salicylic acid are
    gentle enough to use every day.
  •  Many people who have acne need more than
    salicylic acne to control their acne.
  • Protect your face with sunscreen every day
  • The more sun damaged your skin, the less firmness
    it has. When skin starts to lose its firmness,
    pores look more noticeable.

  • Exfoliate
  • Exfoliating may make pores less noticeable. By
    seeing the qualified doctor, you can find out
    whether exfoliating may help make your pores less
    noticeable. The qualified doctor may also be able
    to exfoliate your skin during an office visit.
  • Be gentle with your skin
  • Scrubbing your face wont make it any cleaner,
    picking at, squeezing, or digging into your pores
    can also irritate your skin, making pores look
    more noticeable.
  • Treat sagging skin
  • As we age, our skin loses its firmness and starts
    to sag. Pores look larger when skin sags.

  • The skin is the bodys largest organ, so its
    important to take good care of it. However, doing
    so doesnt necessarily mean breaking the bank. In
    fact, a common, inexpensive product found in most
    peoples medicine cabinets, petroleum jelly, can
    have multiple skin care uses for the entire
  • To save on skin care, qualified doctor recommend
    using petroleum jelly to

Relieve dry skin, including your lips and
eyelids. Dry skin can flake, itch, crack and even
bleed, consider applying petroleum jelly to dry
skin, including your lips and eyelids. The skin
on your eyelids is the thinnest skin on the body
and can get irritated easily. If your eyelids get
dry and flaky, apply a small amount of petroleum
jelly for moisture and protection.
For the best results always apply petroleum
jelly when your skin is damp. Help injured skin
heal For minor wounds such as cuts, scrapes,
and scratches, use petroleum jelly to keep the
wound moist. This helps prevent the wound from
drying out and forming a scab, as scabs take
longer to heal Prevent chafing To prevent
chafing that can lead to blisters, apply
petroleum jelly to problem areas, such as the
feet or thighs. Treat diaper rash The best way
to prevent diaper rash is to keep your babys
skin as dry and clean as possible. However, if
your baby does get a rash, apply petroleum
Rehydrate nails. While petroleum jelly has
many benefits, it shouldnt be used for
everything. Avoid putting petroleum jelly on
your face if you are acne-prone, as this may
cause breakouts in some people. If you have
questions about your skin or how to take care of
it, see a qualified doctor.
  • Menopause, which usually begins one year after
    your last period, can bring with it some
    noticeable changes to your skin and hair. As
    hormone levels plummet, your skin can become dry,
    slack, and thin. You may notice more hair on your
    face and less on your scalp.
  • Age spots and other signs of sun-damaged skin
  • Age spots and larger areas of darker skin can
    appear on your face, hands, neck, arms, or chest.
    (Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or
    higher to all skin that clothing wont cover)

Skin cancer sometimes looks like an age spot or
other dark spot on your skin. If you use your
age-spot treatment on a skin cancer, you may fade
the spot and delay treatment. Delaying treatment
for skin cancer gives the cancer time to possibly
grow and spread. This can make the cancer more
difficult to treat.  After examining your skin,
your doctor can recommend an age-spot treatment
thats suitable for your skin. Bruise easily As
estrogen levels fall, skin becomes thinner. Thin
skin bruises more easily. The qualified doctor
will be honest about what may work for you. For
some women, a retinoid cream can help. Laser
treatment may be another option. Facial Hair As
levels of female hormones fall, you can see
unwanted hair under your chin and along your
jawline or above lips ( if your skin is too thin
then waxing wont be option, with help of
qualified doctor you might include laser hair
removal and hair reduction cream)
Dry skin In menopause, skin loses some ability
to hold water, so skin can get quite dry. This
can be especially noticeable when the air is
dry.The following can help combat dry skin Wash
with a mild cleanser instead of soap, moisturizer
with hyaluronic acid or glycerin can be
especially helpful.Hair loss on you head At
menopause, many women notice thinning hair on
their head. The first sign may be widening part.
Some women find that their hairline starts to
recede. (your doctor may recommend scientific
hair treatments including stem cell like
therapies, laser treatment, or both. Hair
transplant may be the option) .
Face Sagging and Wrinkles As collagen diminishes,
our skin loses it firmness and begins to sag,
jowls appea permanent lines run from the tip of
the nose to the corners of the mouth. Wrinkles
that used to appear only with a smile or frown
become visible all the time. (Protect your skin
from sun and use skin care product that contains
retinol or peptides these ingredients can
increase collagen in your skin) Slow Healing
Hormones play an important role in healing our
skin. When hormones levels fall, skin takes
longer to heal. (see qualified doctor if an
infection or other skin problem occurs) Pimple
and other type of acne As level of female
hormones drop before and during menopause, some
women develop teenage like acne. (wash
acne-proene skin with a cleanse that contains
salicylic acid. This helps unclog Pores)
  • Many things cause our skin to age. Some things we
    cannot do anything about others we can influence.
  • Intrinsic aging. One thing that we cannot
    change is the natural aging process. It plays a
    key role. With time, we all get visible lines on
    our face. It is natural for our face to lose some
    of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin
    becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely
    control when these changes occur. The medical
    term for this type of aging is intrinsic aging.

Extrinsic aging. We can influence another type
of aging that affects our skin. Our environment
and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age
prematurely. The medical term for this type of
aging is extrinsic aging. By taking some
preventive actions, we can slow the effects that
this type of aging has on our skin.
  • 11 ways to reduce premature skin aging
  • The sun plays a major role in prematurely aging
    our skin. Other things that we do also can age
    our skin more quickly than it naturally would. To
    help their patients prevent premature skin aging,
    qualified doctor offer their patients the
    following tips.
  • Protect your skin from the sun every day. Whether
    spending a day at the beach or running errands,
    sun protection is essential. You can protect your
    skin by seeking shade, covering up with
    sun-protective clothing
  • Every time you get a tan, you prematurely age
    your skin. This holds true if you get a tan from
    the sun, a tanning bed, or other indoor tanning
    equipment. All emit harmful UV rays that
    accelerate how quickly your skin ages.
  • If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how
    quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull,
    sallow complexion.

  • vAvoid repetitive facial expressions. When you
    make a facial expression, you contract the
    underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract
    the same muscles for many years, these lines
    become permanent.
  • When you make a facial expression, you contract
    the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly
    contract the same muscles for many years, these
    lines become permanent.
  • Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Findings from
    a few studies suggest that eating plenty of fresh
    fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage
    that leads to premature skin aging.
  • Drink less alcohol. Alcohol is rough on the skin.

  • Exercise most days of the week. Findings from a
    few studies suggest that moderate exercise can
    improve circulation and boost the immune system.
  • Apply a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer
    traps water in our skin, giving it a more
    youthful appearance.
  • Stop using skin care products that sting or burn.
  • Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing your skin
    clean can irritate your skin. Irritating your
    skin accelerates skin aging. Perspiration,
    especially when wearing a hat or helmet,
    irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin
    as soon as possible after sweating.

  • Watch your shaving technique For some men,
    multi-blade razors can work too well or shave too
    closely to your skin. If you often experience
    razor bumps, razor burns, or ingrown hairs, use a
    single- or double-blade razor instead and do not
    stretch your skin taut while shaving. Before you
    shave, wet your skin and hair to soften it. Use a
    moisturizing shaving cream and shave in the
    direction of hair growth. Rinse after each swipe
    of the razor, and change your blade after five to
    seven shaves to minimize irritation.

    water in your skin, which can help reduce the
    appearance of fine lines and make your skin look
    brighter and younger.

  • as these may cause an infection.
  • Do not apply topical antibiotics.

  • If blisters form, let them heal on their own
    while keeping
  • the area covered.
  • Do not pop the blisters.

  • Consider taking patient to a qualified doctor..

  • How do qualified doctor diagnose ringworm?
  •   The qualified doctor can often tell if you
    have ringworm by looking at the infected area.
  • Its common to have athletes foot and ringworm
    on one or both hands. Sometimes, the infection
    spreads to one or more nails.
  • Before giving you the diagnosis, your doctor may
    send a bit of the infected skin, hair, or nail to
    a laboratory.
  • Taking a sample is easy. If you might have
    ringworm on your skin, your doctor will scrape
    off a bit of the infected skin. By looking at the
    sample under a microscope, a doctor can see if it
    contains any of the fungi that cause ringworm.

How do qualified doctor treat ringworm? If you
have ringworm, your doctor will treat it with
antifungal medicine. This medicine comes in many
different forms like creams, ointments, and
pills. What you use will depend on the area of
the body that needs treatment. Skin An
antifungal ointment or cream often clears
ringworm on the skin. Most of these medicines you
apply twice a day for two to four weeks. Many of
these approved medicines are safe and effective
for children. When the ringworm starts to clear,
youll likely see the scale clear before the
redness. Be sure to wash your hands Washing your
hands after treating ringworm helps stop the
disease from spreading to other areas of your
Athletes foot An antifungal cream or spray
that you buy without a prescription may clear
athletes foot. A mild case usually clears in two
weeks. If the athletes foot is more severe or
fails to clear in two weeks, the qualified doctor
can prescribe stronger medicine. Jock itch To
treat this type of ringworm, your doctor may
recommend an antifungal cream, spray, or powder
that you can buy without a prescription. You
typically apply the antifungal twice a day for 10
to 14 days. To treat the itch, it often helps to
apply a wet, cool washcloth to the area for 20 to
30 minutes. You may need to apply cool compresses
2 to 6 times a day. When washing the infected
area or applying a cool compress, be sure to use
a clean washcloth every time and use it only on
the jock itch. Before using the washcloth again,
youll want to wash it in hot, sudsy water to
kill the fungus. Ringworm can survive on objects
for a long time. If the jock itch fails to clear
with at-home treatment, be sure to tell your
doctor. You may need stronger medicine.
Scalp On the scalp, ringworm requires
prescription medicine. It is important to take
an antifungal medicine exactly as prescribed, and
for as long as prescribed. The ringworm may fail
to clear if you stop taking it sooner than
prescribed. This can make it more difficult to
get rid of the ringworm. In fact, everyone with
whom the infected person lives needs to use an
antifungal shampoo. Scalp ringworm is extremely
contagious. When everyone uses antifungal
shampoo, this helps prevent family members from
infecting each other. It's important to apply
(or take) antifungal medicine for as long as
prescribed Stopping early may fail to clear the
infection. This can make ringworm harder to
Hands You may be able to clear a mild case with
an antifungal cream. Often stronger antifungal
medicine like terbinafine or itraconazole is
necessary. If the ringworm has spread to a
fingernail, you will need to take an antifungal
medicine to get rid of the infection.   Nails
You need prescription medicine to clear ringworm
from the nails. Because nails grow slowly,
ringworm will take time to clear. Its important
to keep all follow-up appointments with your
doctor.  You may also need to follow preventive
measures to avoid reinfection. Beard Ringworm
in the beard area requires prescription
antifungal medicine and a tailor-made treatment
plan. Your doctor may need to remove unhealthy
tissue to help the area heal. Youll also need to
shave the infected hair.   Treat ringworm
everywhere on your body To clear ringworm, you
must treat it everywhere on your body at the same
What is the outcome for someone who has
ringworm? Antifungal medicine can clear ringworm
from every area of the body. In some areas like
the nails and hands, clearing takes time. Its
important to follow your doctors treatment plan
and keep all follow-up appointments.

Types of Skin Treatments
  • Be nice to your skin!
  • Like the heart, stomach , and brain , your skin
    is an organ.
  • In fact, its the largest organ in your body.
    Your skin is constantly protecting you. Your skin
    keeps infections out of your body and keeps you
    from getting sick.
  • There are many different types of skin problems
    Some of the more common
  • issues are acne, scars, age spots, wrinkles, and
    sagging skin. Some of the more common skin
    treatments are laser treatments for laser
    rejuvenation and laser resurfacing,
    microdermabrasion, botox (botulinum toxins),
    dermal fillers, chemical peels among others.

Microdermabrasion Works to remove age spots,
wrinkle and lighter acne scars. The physician
uses a handheld instrument to spray small
crystals onto the surface of the skin. The
crystals exfoliate the skin layers, while using
suction simultaneously to remove the crystals and
dead skin cells.
  • Chemical Peels Also called chemexfoliation or
    derma-peeling treatments, are cosmetic treatments
    performed on the face, typically used as an
    anti-aging solution to rejuvenate the skin.
    Chemical peels are used to correct skin
    irregularities in texture, such as fine lines,
    and color, such as spots caused by sun damage.
    Chemical-peel solutions use three main acid
    ingredients to reach varying levels of intensity
    alphahydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid
    (TCA), and phenol.

  • Laser Resurfacing Laser skin resurfacing removes
    the outer layers of the skin that are damaged.
    The laser resurfacing procedure stimulates the
    production of collagen and new skin cells in the
    underlying layers of the skin. Laser resurfacing
    is now used to eliminate or reduce wrinkles and
    fine lines on the face and neck.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Laser skin treatment is
an advanced wrinkle removal treatment that uses
infrared light to tighten the skin without
surgery. The laser light delivers heat to layers
beneath the skins surface, stimulating collagen
production and making the skin look tighter. Many
patients consider the procedure a good
alternative to the traditional face lift, as it
requires no anesthesia, no scalpel, and no
  • Acne Blue Light Therapy Acne blue light therapy
    works by targeting the bacteria that causes acne.
    Moderate acne that has not responded to other
    facial skin care treatments can be treated with
    this light-based therapy, which administered over
    a span of several weeks. Acne blue light therapy
    rarely causes side effects, and does not damage

Thermage Thermage is a non-exfoliating facial
rejuvenation technique designed to tighten and
improve the contours of the face and neck. These
aesthetic improvements are achieved with a radio
frequency device that is passed over face, with
the tip in contact with the skins surface.
Controlled radio waves from the device heat the
deeper layers of the skin, stimulating new
collagen development. The result is tighter and
often smoother skin. Unlike laser treatments,
Thermage can treat all skin types and requires no
downtime. The benefits of the procedure are often
immediately apparent and long-lasting.
