I just got scratched on my cheek yesterday and i really want to get rid of it asap! please help

Keep gooey: No one wants a frankenstein scar even this close to halloween. During the day, keep the scratched area gooey with vasaline petroleum jelly. When you get home at night, put on a product called "scar-guard". If you live in a warm sunny place, you have to keep the area protected with a broad spectrum sun block (spf greater then 30). ...Read more

My so has a significant scratch on his cheek. What is the best early care to prevent scarring. It happened less than 48 hours agoe. He is 8 years old.?

Try Aquaphor: The skin heals better in a moist environment so a simple thing to try is to use an occlusive ointment dressing like aquaphor or vaseline. This is something that an 8 year old may actually do. You can bandage it with a non-adherent dressing, but he may not go for that. It should improve either way. ...Read more

Will cheek implants help my sagging cheek bones? I am reaching the seventy year mark and have noticed that my face is starting to look more sunken. I have always been proud of my appearance and this is disturbing me a lot. I have considered several differ

Aging : Aging brings with it a multitude of changes many of which relate to the skin surface or the volume of tissue holding the skin firm in youth. Depending on which area is more bothersome to you, treatment can be tailored to meet your expectation and desires. Generally speaking, a cheek implant will work regardless of the age of the bony structure. It is placed underneath the deep tissues to rejuvenate and recontour the cheeks to give them a tighter appearance. The cheekbones-anatomically referred to as the zygomatic bones - are augmented by implanting the patient's own fat, harvested from the abdomen or hips. So-called malar implants made of plastic/silicone can be inserted primarily via an approach through the hair-bearing temples or through the mouth via an incision in the gum. I would sit down with your facial plastic surgeon and discuss your options, sometimes it is best to consider combining the treatment of your cheeks with treatment of the skin if that is relevant. I hope this information has been useful, for more information you can always check out my website regarding facial rejuvenation procedures and techniques. Sincerely, dr. Tal dagan. ...Read more

Facial fat grafting, skin fillers, and midface lifting are other methods to improve the facial appearance. Visiting with a board certified facial plastic surgeon would allow for a more in depth discussion of your options. ...Read more
