Which plastic surgery for white skin did micheal jackson went under?What are other effective peal, laser treatment for having a glowing fair skin?Help!

No answer.: You cannot look at a given person and ask what procedure(s) he or she may have had, unless they choose to tell you. Even then, individual characteristics of patients preclude application to your unique situation. Elimination of acne scars is not possible, only improvement. Dermabrasion for localized areas, and peels or laser for larger areas, will yield the best results, if performed by an expert. ...Read more

Now that i'm already tanned, need help in removing it. Please suggest me a better solution as read that 'hydroquinone' bleaches the skin & harmful too?

Skin: I am unsure what you are really asking. If you are tan and do not want to be, then the safest thing to do is to stay out of the sun and to let the tan fade naturally. I would advise against any harsh or medical creams to bleach the skin. Tans fade rapidly when the sun exposure stops. ...Read more

Azeleic acid does : lighten spots but tends to be drying and a little irritating and mostly used for acne and postinflammatory acne spots. FAirlite cream is resorcinol which can also lighten spots. I would follow my doctors advice. If not better after 2 months certainly see derm ...Read more

Is there cream that lightens dark armpits caused from shaving that i can use? Other then seeing a dermatology

There are many OTC: lighteners that can help, although they can be irritating. You can try , but if not working you likely need prescription strength bleach and chemical peels to lighten. There are also medical conditions that can lead to thickening of armpits. So I suggest seeing dermatologist if not improving with OTC ...Read more

I have a medium brown complexion, 28 yrs & indian lady.I get tanned easily.What is the best sunscreen for an oily skin &what can I apply to remove tan?

Sun Protection: The most important thing when selecting a sunscreen is to make sure it provides full spectrum protection against uva and uvb rays as these are what can damage skin and your underlying cells. Their are a number of sunscreens indicated for oily skin. Pay attention to key ingredients - those with zinc oxide provide instant protection as compared to chemical blocks which take time to become effective. ...Read more

Doctor's opinion? My skin doctor suggested me a chemical peel but the problem is i was born with dark pigmented skin?

Doctor's opinion? My skin doctor suggested me a chemical peel but the problem is i was born with dark pigmented skin?

Could be ok: Why are you to have chemical peel? Are you worried with dark skin the peel will worsen that somehow? Chemical peels will remove top layer and leave skin pink and new but it will pigment in over time. I would also suggest you share your concern with skin doctor so he can give you information on his experience with skin types like yours. ...Read more

I have used rdl baby face solution which contains hydroquinone 4% and tretinoin 20 mcg.Is it harmful for skin.Is that a cause for skin cancer..?

Bad choice: This won't give you skin cancer, but if you try to lighten your skin color, you can disfigure yourself. You're a young man at your physical, mental and sexual prime. Light or dark, it's your genetic gift, and if people see you trying to change it, you'll invite ridicule. Why not instead focus on taking the best care possible of your body, and develop its full potential for strength ; beauty? ...Read more

Artefill is a relatively new wrinkle therapy. Is it safe? Artefill has recently come on the market as a face wrinkle therapy. In the past, some others have had adverse side-effects. I want to make sure I am getting the safest solution to my wrinkle proble

I : I agree 100% with the comments made regarding artefill. Although artefill has been in the market for cosmetic treatment only since 2003 (first in europe, then in 2006 it was approved by the us fda), the active ingredient in artefill, pmma, has been used for decades (50+ years) in a variety of medical applications including intraocular lenses to treat cataracts, and artificial joints. Since artefill is a long lasting filler, it should be administered by an experienced facial plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon who deals primarily with the face. I absolutely agree that asking for before and after pictures as well as asking questions regarding the physicians experience and expertise specifically in injecting artefill are important. Do not be shy to ask your doctor how experienced he or se is. It should be as natural as interviewing a babysitter who will be taking care of your precious kids. Artefill is a safe injectible and has gone trough the scrutinizing eye of the United States food and drug administration testing as well as the european pharmaceutical regulatory agencies for safety and effectiveness as a cosmetic injectible. Always remember that adverse effects may be the result of any medical treatment. As physicians we are obligated to ensure that you receive any treatment in the safest possible way with the safest possible materials and methods. ...Read more

Filler choice: Artefill is safe when used properly. If you have concerns about side effects, the least potential for side effects exisst with the hyaluronic acid gel fillers which can be dissolved. They are sugar based and have a very low potential for negative side effects outside of temporary swelling. ...Read more

Do y think using a dermaroller is safe and effective for my stretchmarks? I've seen many dermatology clinics that perform it?

Do y think using a dermaroller is safe and effective for my stretchmarks? I've seen many dermatology clinics that perform it?

Unlikely: The dermaroller device and others like it are designed to cause "micro" punctures into the very superficial levels of the skin which, in turn, is supposed to stimulate collagen production in the treated area. Sadly, for stretchmarks, the effects is not likely to give you a significant enough response to notice a difference, even after several treatments. ...Read more

Is Vaseline good for face & lips or it makes them darker in color? I want a product as well to open face pores.

Is Vaseline good for face & lips or it makes them darker in color? I want a product as well to open face pores.

Not ideal: Vaseline used on the face and lips should not cause discoloration unless you are sensitive to one of the ingredients, such as petroleum. It is generally not recommended for use on the face in people who have acne as is will clog the pores. People with eczema often find it useful for dry itchy skin. ...Read more
