Is a chemical peel a top choice anti-aging treatment for reducing fine lines?

Is a chemical peel a top choice anti-aging treatment  for reducing fine lines?

Fine line treatment: To treat fine lines, a chemical peel is a great way to start. To keep those lines from coming back, i would add a good medical skin care product as well as Botox cosmetic treatments every 4-5 months. The goal is to not only rejuvenate the skin but also to protect it in the long run. As such, a combination approach as described tends to be far more lasting than a single peel. ...Read more

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

You choose: The choice of treatment depends directly on the risk/benefit assessment and your personal opinion. I agree with the respondents. A circumcision will be curative. Steroid creams work quite well and should be tried first if you desire an "intact" prepuce. If these fail, and you still do not want a circ, then you can opt for operative stretching/slit/or partial circ all of which can recur. ...Read more

Not usually: Liposuction can be done under local or general anesthesia. The recovery is usually very quick. I often perform laser liposculpture under local anesthesia, and it is quite tolerable.
