I'm 40 years old and have very large pores on my nose...Is there a way to shrink them? An prescription or OTC treatment? They look like mini blackheads. Thanks!

I'm 40 years old and have very large pores on my nose...Is there a way to shrink them? An prescription or OTC treatment? They look like mini blackheads. Thanks!

PORES: Pores are not like doors. You cannot open and close them whenever you wish. Pores are the openings of oil glands; they are inherited; you cannot change their size. Oily skin & severe acne may make pores “appear” larger. Squeezing blackheads & pimples can lead to permanently widened pores. Toners & astringents can make them look smaller temporarily. And get rid of your magnifying mirrors! ...Read more

I wouldn't do it: If you use a freckle remover, even from a dermatologist, you risk disfiguring yourself. Freckles are endearing, they're distinctively you, and a majority of your friends probably like them. Ask them. If you want them less prominent, avoid excess sunlight -- wise in any case. ...Read more

What's best for acne scars... OTC creams like Mederma or scarfade, or RX like tretinions?

Scar improvement: Scar improvement can be achieved, but it takes patience. An overnight improvement is simply impossible. There is no clinical evidence to support Mederma. You need a long peel. This is achieved with tretinoins. Also, microdermabrasion and/or dermabrasion depending on scar depth. A chemical peel is also an otpion, Tretinoins, abrasions, and peels all achieve the desired skin slough. Good luck ...Read more

Does having TMJ have any effect on your facial appearance?

Does having TMJ have any effect on your facial appearance?

No: Having TMJ should not affect your face, unless you are in a lot of pain and you have a pained expression on your face.

Will a missing molar tooth affect the facial appearance(on the exterior), skin flexibility,jaw volum loss,..as time goes by? I can't afford an implant

Missing tooth: Molars are key teeth in your mouth. They serve to bring food and that's where most of the chewing occurs. Losing a tooth in one jaw causes the tooth in the opposing jaw to over erupt and the neighboring teeth to drift. A replacement in the form of a "bridge" or an implant crown may be indicated to prevent any undesirable consequences. Consult with your dentist to determine the right treatment. ...Read more

Hello, i was curious to know .. Can antipsychotic drugs permanently alter appearance making one less physically attractive throughout treatment?

Hello, i was curious to know .. Can antipsychotic drugs permanently alter appearance making one less physically attractive throughout treatment?

Depends : Antipsychotic medications can alter appearance through weight gain and sometimes slow movements and cause stiffness in muscles, which can change a person's appearance. At the same time, the reason someone takes antipsychotic medications, like bipolar disorder, depression, or schizophrenia, can itself change someone's appearance through stress. It's best to speak to your doctor to sort this out. ...Read more

I have a soft corn on my third toe and I have been using Dr. Scholls corn removers to rid the appearance, but it keeps re-appearing after treatment. ?

I have a soft corn on my third toe and 
I have been using Dr. Scholls corn removers to rid the appearance, but it keeps re-appearing after treatment. ?

Soft corn: These are tough, because the area between the toes is usually very moist--it is difficult to get anything to stick there. The condition is most often caused by a prominent bone in one or both of the toes that rub against each other. Try padded sleeves or tube foam. Ultimately, an X ray and surgery (shaving down the prominent bone, etc.) may be necessary to get rid of the problem. ...Read more

I am way too conscious of my appearance. Please tell me, does the surgical treatment of mucous cyst of lip ruins your look in any way? The stitches?

Size and location: The size and location of the cyst will usually dictate the answer. Most mucous cysts are rather small and incision usually leaves little to no scars. If removed with a diode laser, no sutures are usually needed. If a scalpel is used, very thin sutures may be used. This is a very common procedure and discuss the details with your dentist. ...Read more

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Wart topical therapy: Sure - you're basically trying to destroy the thing with a chemical compound, so I would expect some morphological changes. What exactly that's going to look like on it's way to final destruction depends on the starting size, how much treatment you give it etc. The thing about warts is they 'hide' from the immune system, so they can be somewhat persistent. Sounds like you're making progress tho. ...Read more
