Be Careful: Lasers allow you to preferentially target blood, pigment or water in the skin or tissues. That way, if you are trying to get rid of brown spots on the skin of a light complected person, you will have a good result as long as the settings are properly chosen. However, with darker skin, the laser has a tough time differentiating between normal skin color and spots to remove - be careful. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Damon braces (notmetal) vs lingual? My dr claims damon aremore effective,they make smile wider, reduce dark triangles. is he biased?he only does damon
See a pro: General dentist's who do braces are not as trains or as skilled as Orthodontic Specialists. An Orthodontist knows that the training and skill of the operator is more important then the gadget. Lingual appliances take longer to treat. Damon appliances tend to flare teeth outward. Please seek a specialist's opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Compare a composite veneer to a porcelin veneer? Can cheaper composite be just as good? Why shave down good natural teeth vs. Fill in black triangles?
Night and day: Either may be the perfect choice for you. It really depends upon the specific circumstances and your expectations. In some cases a well placed bonded filling may provide excellent esthetics and last for 5-10 years, while in some cases a well fabricated veneer is the only way to achieve the best esthetics and function for 10 years +. Tooth reduction can be minimal in many cases. No one best answer ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Why do skinniest models fit the beauty ideal of thinness.? Does media view justify thier harsh criticism of regular girls?
No: The liberal media has done more to damage our health than we can imagine. They glamorize the skinny models and at the same time support the advertisement of poisonous foods with sugar, chemicals and pesticides. Our society is confused by this and that is why we have such a dliemma with our weight - both over and under.

Plastic surgeon: Moles are something that both dermatologists and plastic surgeons deal with. Dermatologists are experts at diagnosing the types of moles and conditions of the skin.

Would pills like fertility blend, proxeed or fertipil really help with husbands fertility? He is 34 and i suspect he suffers from ED as well.
No & No: Although several studies have shown an improvement in sperm parameters with anti-oxidant and vitamin therapy, no study has shown a significant improvement in pregnancy rates. Taking vitamins certainly can't hurt, but don't pay the huge price difference just because the bottle says "fert" on it. A semen analysis would be a great place to start. See a urologist or fertility doc for the ed. ...Read more
Is it ok to take blended (fruits are blended whole w/o seeds) fruits + vege every morning? A blend of 4 fruits + 1 veggie. 500ml = 750ml in the mornin
Probably not: That's sort of like asking if a potato is similar to a vitamin supplement. Neither maca root nor fertility blend are single items (several manufacturers put those words on their labels). Neither maca root nor fertility blend are medications. They are over-the-counter supplements, which means little or no testing has been done, and nobody really knows for sure what the effects or side effects are. ...Read more
Not really: If you blend foods and keep the fiber in them- the glycemic index should remain the same. The stomach churns the food almost as well. Many people who blend foods, strain them and take out the fiber, the pulp, the seeds. These sources of fiber when removed, would increase the glycemic index and glycemic load delivered to the body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not my approach: I recommend you review your concerns with your gynecologist or fertility specialist. Fertility blend sounds like a combination of fancy herbs and vitamins. I checked out a "review" on the company web site and was not impressed. Individual testimonies are not the way to make such important decisions as how to address infertility problems. Fertility improves with happiness, nutrition and rest. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
