In general, treatment for acne scars depends on the type & location of the scars as well as your skin type. For facial acne scars, common treatments include fraxel and fractionated co2 resurfacing, and sometimes subcision. I'd suggest seeing a dermatologist to help determine best treatment options. ...Read more

So often times, dry eyes occur that makes vision less clear until we start blinking normally again. This becomes normal afterwards. Sounds like you saw an interesting TV show for this to have happened. ...Read more

How often should I change the elastics of my braces? I was told to only change them when they broke, but read it's best to change at least once a day?
2x/day: When rubber bands were really rubber, they quickly lost stretch insets, requiring frequent replacement. Today's latex elastics work longer. But to work, they have to be worn. That means 24 hrs/day, including while eating. Elastics should be removed only to clean teeth, 2x/day, and therefore replaced 2x/day. ...Read more
