Is Veregen (sinecatechins) cream appropriate to use even when gen.warts are gone(removed with radio waves) or it is used only when there are still existing warts?

For treating warts: No point in using this $1000 ointment if you have no warts. If you do have warts there are several treatments, none of them as effective as we would like. The only prevention is the vaccine. This does not help get rid of existing warts. You may wish to get the shot to protect you from other genital wart viruses not already in your skin. ...Read more

Freeze fat removal with coolsculpting by zeltiq is really work? Is it safe? How many times has to take the treatment?

Freeze fat removal with coolsculpting by zeltiq is really work? Is it safe? How many times has to take the treatment?

Minimally invasive: options only give minimal results. It is generally safe but the results are really minimal. Some clinicians require that you do a substantial number of treatments and even combine them with diets. When this is the case, it makes one wonder whether the perceived improvement is more due to the diet than the fat freeze procedure. If you want definitive results nothing beats liposuction. ...Read more
