    One of the most repulsive and problematic skin disorders, angular cheilitis is known to cause a lot of irritation. Cheilitis is usually a condition that refers to the inflammation of the lip on account of certain allergies and infections. When it takes place on the edges of the mouth, it is termed as angular cheilitis. It is similar to an extreme chapping of the lips, only more painful and unsightly. Some of the cheilitis start as cold sores and lead to the cracking or splitting of the skin. On certain severe conditions, the cheilitis may also end up bleeding. While cheilitis is not a contagious disease, it often spreads to the other parts of the body, magnifying the discomfort. Cheilitis vary from minor to chronic proportions. The usual treatments for angular cheilitis entail applying lip balm and chap-sticks. For acute conditions, one may seek medical advice.

    Angular cheilitis may take place in any unsuspecting individual. One of the primary causes of this condition is germ intrusion. Contact with the dribble of saliva triggers this condition. While among other causes, contamination by bacteria, yeasts and viruses are prominent factors. The commissures often also indicate a weak immunity system especially iron deficiency. It is known to be more frequently occurring in people with sensitive skin. Certain genetic predispositions like a history of eczema and down syndrome may act as catalysts.

    For minor cheilitis, the most obvious complaint could be cited as difficulty in opening one's mouth. However, for more serious conditions, onset of blisters, rashes and fissures are fairly common. Dermatologists usually recommend nutritional supplements as palliative care for angular cheilitis. Over and above that, for immediate relief, one can try keeping the commissure covered in a thick layer of ointment or lip balm. Antiseptic creams and antifungal medicines are also prescribed to counter the effects of angular cheilitis. On certain occasions, one may also resort to filler injections to cover up the commissures.

    Rashes in the vulva, which might be caused due to various health problems or due to irritation on skin, usually constitute all the vaginal rashes. The vaginal rashes might be the result of non infectious conditions (it might be an allergic reaction) or it might also be the result of a sexually transmitted infection. The vulva may become red and might have sores and blisters. Many times, the vulva doesn't change color at all, but visible bumps are present in the area.

    The symptoms of vaginal rashes are as follows:

    Blisters or sores
    Reddening of the vulva
    Visible bumps
    Vaginal discharge
    Pain in the pelvic region
    Painful urination with a burning feeling
    Pain while having sex
    Lice or insects in the pubic hair
    Enlarged lymph nodes
    Ulcers on the groin
    Although the symptoms are not usually fatal, sometimes the conditions might become life threatening. If your body temperature rises above 101of and if you are suffering from a severe abdominal and pelvic pain, the best option is to consult a doctor immediately.

    Vaginal rashes can be due both noninfectious causes as well as due to sexually transmitted infections. Some of the infectious causes are:

    Genital herpes
    Granuloma inguinale
    Human papilloma virus
    Molluscum contagiosum
    Pubic lice
    Yeast infections
    Some of the noninfectious causes are:

    Allergic reactions
    Chemical irritants like soap, lubricants, creams, etc
    Lichen simplex chronicus
    Although the vaginal rashes aren't very serious in nature, you might face certain complications like infertility, secondary or tertiary syphilis, and transmitting the infection to your partner.

    Vaginal rashes are usually treated with home remedies. Here are a few treatments you could try out if you are afflicted with vaginal rashes:

    Apple cider vinegar: this particular substance is known for having antifungal and antibacterial properties. It will help you get over the itching which takes place when you are suffering with a vaginal rash. If the rash is due to a fungal or bacterial infection, then apple cider vinegar will help to clear out the infection. Wash your vagina with apple cider vinegar and warm water mixture.
    Anti-bacterial talc: anti-bacterial talc is extremely mild to the skin. It helps to cure fungal infections but this method might take some time to cure the rash.
    Consult your doctor if the rash becomes serious and requires immediate attention.

    Pitted keratolysis is a skin condition that affects the soles of your feet. As a result of this disease, the skin on the forefoot or heel turns white with pitted clusters. This is often accompanied by an offensive odor and is worse when the skin is wet. This odor is the main reason patients seek treatment for this skin condition. If left untreated, this can last for many years.

    People who suffer from excessive sweating and those who wear closed shoes for extended durations have a high risk of suffering from this condition. Pitted Keratolysis is a bacterial infection where the bacteria multiply in moist conditions and release enzymes that destroy the horny cells of the foot soles.

    With time, this turns into characteristic crater like pits on the skin. They also produce sulphur compounds simultaneously that lead to the odor.

    Treatment for this skin condition can be categorized under medicinal treatments and home remedies.

    Medicinal remedies
    1. One of the ways to treat this disease is to treat the hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating that triggers it.
    2. Topical fusidic acid ointments or clotrimazole ointments can also provide some relief.
    3. Your doctor may also prescribe oral antibiotics to clear stubborn lesions.
    4. Other treatment options include anti-bacterial soap and injectable botulinum toxin. Using a strong antiperspirant with aluminum chloride can also resolve the issue.

    Home remedies
    1. The first thing you must do if you suffer from this condition is keep your feet dry. Wearing socks with your shoes is a good idea as this keeps your feet dry and ventilated. Thus, keeping the bacteria from multiplying. After having a bath, pay special attention to drying your feet. You could even use a hair dryer on your feet.
    2. Wash your feet with soap and water at least twice a day. You could also use an antiseptic cleanser or antibacterial soap.
    3. Try and reduce the number of hours you wear closed shoes. Whenever possible, wear open toed sandals. Do not wear the same shoes for two days in a row without giving them time to dry out.
    4. If possible, change your socks at least once in the day.
    5. Do not share footwear or towels with anyone else.
    6. Apply antiperspirants to the soles of your feet.
    7. Soak your feet in half a bucket of water with 15-20 drops of tea tree oil.

    Your baby's skin is soft and sensitive. Being cautious can reduce the chances of skin infections, but it doesn't in any way refute the possibility altogether. Hence, you must be overly careful. Your baby could face intense discomfort if you happen to neglect the appearance of diaper rashes. Persistent rashes on your baby's bottom can make him or her irritable. Look into the causes and remedies of diaper rash in children to keep your baby cheerful.

    Causes of Diaper Rash in Babies:
    1. Friction and lack of air circulation between the skin and the diaper can make your baby suffer from rashes. Make sure the baby doesn't rub against a diaper for too long; existing rashes can go worse in that case.
    2. You should never let your child remain in a dirty diaper for more than a while. A dirty diaper increases the risk of bacterial infections on your baby's bottom.
    3. Skin chafing could also be the reason behind diaper rashes.
    4. Yeast infections could surface in the form of rashes on a baby's bottom. Yeast or fungus is present in small amounts in every person's body. It can be easily developed in the moist yet warm atmosphere of a child's diaper. Being the mother, if you are on medications, your child's chances of contracting skin rashes is likely to be more. The side effects show in children as they are breastfed.

    Ways to Treat Diaper Rash in Babies:
    1. Each time a diaper is changed; the area must be washed with lukewarm water and cleaned with a soft piece of cloth. The area should then be dried completely. It is best to avoid soaps as they can be harsh on sensitive skin.
    2. Applying ointments or petroleum jelly can soothe diaper rash. Powder can keep the area dry; it can also remedy itching.
    3. Feed your child liquids like cranberry juice; it makes his or her urine less concentrated. Concentrated urine can cause severe bacterial infection.

    Most people have suffered from acne at some point of their life or the other. However, acne is one of the most misunderstood skin conditions. Let's take a look at 5 myths and facts about acne.

    Acne is caused by poor hygiene habits - myth
    Acne is not caused by dirty skin. Contrary to popular belief, washing your face too many times can make the condition of your skin deteriorate. This can also worsen your acne breakout. Aggressively soaping your skin and excessive use of astringent can also traumatize the skin and make it look worse after treatment. You should ideally wash your face twice a day; once in the morning and once before going to bed. However, if you feel a buildup of oil on your face, you can wash it with lukewarm water and a mild soap.

    Acne affects people of all ages - fact
    Acne is most common amongst teenagers, but can affect people of all races and ages. Hormonal changes and stress are two of the most common triggers for acne. Acne that begins after the age of 25 years is known as'late onset acne. Hormonal changes associated with a woman's menstrual cycle often trigger acne eruptions.

    There is no treatment for acne - myth
    Acne does not go away on its own. At the same time, toothpaste and picking pimples' are not the best form of treatment for this condition. Acne can be easily treated with over the counter and prescription drugs. In some cases, you may also need antibiotics or hormonal medication. If left untreated, acne can result in permanent scarring that mars your beauty.

    Moisturizing skin can help prevent acne - fact
    It may seem contradictory at first glance, but keeping your skin moisturized can help prevent acne. Dehydrated skin produces more oil than hydrated skin. Thus keeping your skin hydrated is essential. Choose a light moisturizer instead of heavy creams.

    Makeup causes acne - myth
    Makeup has often been misunderstood as a trigger for acne. However, makeup itself does not cause acne. The fault lies in not removing makeup properly at the end of the day. If you have oily skin that is prone to acne, choose powder based foundations instead of liquid foundations that can clog your pores. If you use a lot of makeup through the day, give your skin time to breathe at night. Ensure that every trace of makeup is removed before you go to bed.

    Some people use the same soap for a lifetime not because they are loyal to the soap brand, but because they fear the reaction their skin would have to other soaps. Similarly, people across the world often see rashes erupt after using a new perfume, cosmetics, jewellery or after coming in contact with plants, such as poison ivy or poison oak. This condition is known as Contact Dermatitis. This can be described as skin condition where the skin is inflamed, red and itchy as a result of exposure to a foreign substance.

    Most cases of contact dermatitis are not serious, but can be quite unpleasant. There are three types of contact dermatitis. These are:

    -Allergic Contact Dermatitis
    This condition occurs when the skin is exposed to an irritant it may be allergic to. Common triggers are jewellery, perfumes and latex.

    -Irritant Contact Dermatitis
    This is the most common form of this skin condition. This condition is triggered by toxic materials, such as bleach, battery acid, detergents, drain cleaners and kerosene. It is also known as hand eczema as it often occurs as a reaction to soaps or over exposure to water.

    -Photo Contact Dermatitis
    This is the rarest form of contact dermatitis. It occurs when the active ingredients in sunscreen are exposed to sunlight.

    Inflamed skin is one of the first symptoms of contact dermatitis. Some of the other symptoms are:
    -Dry, flaky skin
    -Redness of the skin
    -Blisters that may be dry or oozing
    -Burning sensation on the skin
    -Sun sensitivity

    Contact Dermatitis on its own rarely requires anything more than medication. Most cases often subside on their own. Avoid scratching the infected skin as it can make the condition worse. Wash the affected area as often as possible with cool water and soap. Over the counter anti itch treatment like calamine lotion and hydrocortisone cream can help ease the itchiness and inflammation. An anti histamine drug could also be beneficial. If the rash covers a large expanse of skin, consult a doctor who may prescribe a stronger steroid cream.

    With contact dermatitis, prevention is better than cure. Three easy tips to follow to protect yourselves against the skin condition are:
    -Only use those products that are labeled hypoallergenic or unscented.
    -Use vinyl gloves instead of latex gloves
    -Cover all exposed skin when working outdoors, hiking etc.

    Dermabrasion is a procedure where a brush made up of wire or a rough edged diamond wheel is used on the skin to remove the upper layer from the skin. The rotation of the brush causes the upper layer of the skin to come off and may cause bleeding. The skin that comes off is replaced with new skin.

    Why it is done?
    1. The procedure may be used to treat various surgical scars.
    2. Usually this procedure is used to get rid of acne scars.
    3. The procedure is used to treat various superficial growths that occur on the skin such as small cysts.
    4. It may also be used to treat wrinkles around the mouth.

    The area where the procedure is carried out is marked and then cleaned properly. Local anesthesia is used to numb the skin followed by an application of ice pack for about half an hour. If the preceding procedures do not harden the skin enough, then a freezing spray may be used to firm up the skin. Gauze may be used to restrict the bleeding which results from the procedure. The area is then cleaned and ointment is applied.

    The depth and size of the procedure determines, how much time the recovery process will take. For example, a small patch of skin will take little time to heal compared to a full face dermabrasion. It usually takes 6 to 7 days for the skin to regrow, which is pink in color. The color tends to fade away in 2 to 3 months. Usually patients do not suffer from pain, but if you do have some pain then you can take pain relievers. Corticosteroids may be used to treat swellings, if any.

    You need to follow certain precautionary measures after the surgery:
    1. Regular cleaning of the skin to avoid various infections of the skin.
    2. Regular changing of the dressing and the ointment to speed up the healing process.
    3. Sun exposure needs to be avoided as the new skin is prone to damage. You may use sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun's rays.

    Aesthetic medicine is a developing branch of medicine and scientific research. The objective is to cosmetically enhance an individual's physical appearance with nominally invasive procedures. It is a modern field and is not just restricted to plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Most medical specialists can offer services in the field of aesthetic medicine.

    The major types of procedures and techniques are:
    1. Surgical techniques
    a. Liposuction: This is a surgical cosmetic technique, which is used to remove fat from certain areas of the body to re-shape the body and reduce weight.
    b. Facelifts: A facelift is a surgical procedure, which is done to restore the healthy and youthful features of the skin by injecting dermal fillers (soft tissue) into the hollow or sagging parts of the face or neck.
    c. Radiofrequency ablation: In this medical procedure, a radio wave produces electric current and eliminates the diseased or non-functional tissues. The technique has applications outside aesthetic medicine too, such as treating tumors, chronic pain, heart problems, etc.
    d. Hair transplant: Hair transplantation surgery is a procedure where the hair follicles are surgically removed from a donor site and implanted on the recipient side to cover up bald spots. The hair follicles are taken from the patient and so, the grafted hair continues its natural growth after surgery.
    2. Non-Surgical techniques
    a. Radio frequency skin tightening: This is a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and it produces the connective tissues (collagen and elastin) in order to remodel the tissues and tighten the skin of the face and the neck.
    b. Chemical peel: A chemical peel is a type of skin treatment, which is used to smoothen and improve the texture of skin. It is especially done for the facial skin to remove lines, folds and wrinkles. The procedure causes the dead skin cells to peel off and the new skin that appears is more even and youthful.
    c. Non-surgical liposuction: This procedure is done using laser energy and ultrasound and the subcutaneous fat cells are eliminated. There is no suction, incision or injection involved.These techniques are of lower risk as compared to surgical weight loss procedures.
    d. Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal: The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedure involves a spectrum of wavelengths (similar to those of a light bulb), which are targeted at the skin and some of the wavelengths can remove body hair. Laser hair removal is slightly more effective than IPL because it involves a focused beam of light in one specific wavelength, which targets the hair follicles of your skin.

    Pityriasis Rosea is a common skin problem which causes a rash. Although, it can occur at any age, it is most often seen in those between the age of 10 to 35. It is usually harmless and a pretty common condition. It is also worth noting that Pityriasis Rosea does not spread from person to person.

    The exact cause of Pityriasis Rosea has not been identified yet. Some doctors claim that it is caused by a virus, bacteria, or fungus while others claim that it is caused by an allergic reaction.

    There are a fair number of warning signs of the Pityriasis Rosea rash. The symptoms may differ depending on the patient's general health condition, the climate condition, and the season.

    1. Size and appearance at first
    When the rash first appears, it has a raised border. Basically, it is a pink patch which can be single, round, or oval in shape. 2 cm to 10 cm is the usual range when it comes to the size of the patch.

    2. Few days or weeks later
    After a few days, 1cm to 2cm patches appear on the abdomen, back, chest, legs and arms area. They sometimes spread to the neck, but rarely to the face.

    3. Back patches
    The patches on the back are slightly different from the rest. They tend to be angled and look somewhat like a Christmas tree. Sometimes it is itchy, but it goes away within 6 to 8 weeks.

    Pityriasis Rosea goes away without treatment. It usually lasts about 6 to 8 weeks. However, in order to relieve itching at home:
    1. Apply anti-allergic powder.
    2. Avoid taking hot showers. Keep the water as cool as possible while taking the bath.
    3. Eat a lot of oatmeal and try bath products which have oatmeal in them.
    4. Hydrocortisone cream is very good for the itchy areas on your body. However, do not use these on the face or pubic areas.
    5. Use antihistamines, but, for children, you must check with the doctor first.
    6. Apply moisturizer regularly.
    7. Use gentle soaps and avoid deodorant soaps as these worsen the rash and the itching.

    A boil or a skin abscess is a type of bacterial skin infection that leads to formation of a pus-filled red bump on the skin. It usually starts in an oil gland or a hair follicle on the face, the armpits, the neck or the shoulders. If a cluster of boils appears, it is called a carbuncle and this is a more severe infection than a boil. However, most boils are caused by minor infection and can be healed with simple treatment at home. Listed below are the various ways to deal with a boil:

    Boils are not entirely preventable but normal daily hygiene can reduce the frequency of the occurrence of boils.
    When you notice a boil formation, you should apply a hot compress on it. The heat helps to prevent the formation of too much pus by helping it drain faster. When the blood circulation to the area is improved by the heat, the antibodies help to draw out the germs.
    The boil usually drains on its own. You may try draining it yourself but only when it is soft. Poking a hard boil can be extremely painful; it may bleed and make the infection worse. It is usually best to let it drain by itself.
    When the boil starts draining, you can clean the infected area with an antibacterial soap daily till the boil is drained and flattened. You may clean it with some rubbing alcohol in order to prevent the germs in the pus from spreading to other areas of the body.
    The infected area can be kept covered with sterile gauze coated with antibiotic ointment.
    Penicillin-based antibiotics can be used to treat the boil but only if it is a severe infection. 
    7. If the boil is excessively painful, you can use pain relievers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol.
    Avoid sitting in one particular position for too long because this increases the pain.
    It is important to wash your hands every time you touch the draining boil because the bacteria is extremely contagious and can spread to other areas of your skin as well as to other people.
    All the articles which have been used to treat the boils like the gauze, cloth, cotton and hot compress should either be discarded or disinfected to avoid spreading of the infection.

    Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease where the skin cells form a mass of scales. These patches of skin are dry, red and itchy. It is an autoimmune disease which usually occurs on the skin of the back, scalp, palms, knees, elbows and around the fingernails and toenails, but some people have the diseased patches of skin all over the body. The patches may also crack, flake and bleed. The condition has no definite cure but the symptoms can be treated and managed.

    Causes of psoriasis

    The following factors are proven to have contributed to cases of psoriasis:

    1. Genetics
    More than 32% of the cases of psoriasis have been linked to genes. In case of identical twins, if one twin has the disease, the other has a 70% chance of getting it too. There are several genes associated with the disease and most of these genes are related to the immune system. T cells (lymphocytes which affect cell specific immunity) can also cause psoriasis.

    2. Hiv
    Human immuno-deficiency virus adversely affects the immune system and increases susceptibility of all kinds of infections and diseases. Hiv-positive individuals have been found to have an increased risk of psoriasis than hiv-negative people.

    3. Other diseases
    Diseases like strep throat, chronic infections, skin infections and stress may be responsible for the condition. Other factors like obesity, alcoholism, skin dryness and smoking can also lead to psoriasis.

    4. Medication
    Anti-malarial, anti-inflammatory and blood pressure medicines can cause psoriasis as a side effect. The disease is also an effect of withdrawal from topical steroid creams and other steroid-based medication.

    Symptoms of psoriasis

    The symptoms of psoriasis may vary from patient to patient. However, if more than two of the following signs are seen, it is likely that psoriasis is the causative condition:

    1. A whitish and silvery mass of scales surrounded by red patches of stinging, itchy skin
    2. The appearance of blisters or rashes on the dry scaly skin and also along the nails
    3. Bumps on the folded skin like back of the knees, armpits etc.
    4. Diseased patches of skin can crack, peel and bleed
    5. A sharp and localized pain in the joints accompanied by stiffness
    6. Soreness in the throat
    7. Tiny depressions in the nails or large brown patches under the nails
    8. Swelling and tenderness of the limbs
    9. Dental plaque
    10. Muscle pain due to the swollen bands of connective tissue

    What is chemical peeling?

    Chemical peeling is a skin treatment which involves the peeling of the old skin and its replacement by a new layer of skin. It is generally done on the face, neck or arms and the process involves the application of a chemical solution over the skin in order to improve the overall appearance. The chemical peeling process is generally used to treat common skin disorders like - acne, wrinkles, scars, and such others.

    Common uses

    The chemical peeling process is mostly used to treat skin ailments in general. Some of the most common uses of a chemical peeling are as follows:

    Reducing fine lines on the face
    Curing and preventing certain types of acne
    Removing light to mild scars
    Treating wrinkles on the face
    Healing damages caused due to sun burns
    Reducing age spots, dark patches and freckles on the face
    Improving the softness and overall quality of skin

    What should you keep in mind before opting for a chemical peel?

    A chemical peel is a huge step towards the treatment of your skin, thus, you should always consult a dermatologist before actually opting for a chemical peeling process. It is a highly recommended measure because chemical peeling in some cases might not suit your skin. So, a complete skin diagnosis by a doctor helps to minimize the possible side effects related to the chemical peeling process. In general, this process is preferred in cases of people having a fair toned skin accompanied by a light hair growth. Before you get a chemical peel done, your doctor might just examine your medical history in order to stop certain medications that you are taking currently. Additionally, the doctor might also prescribe you certain medications, such as Retin-A, Renova, or glycolic acid to boost up the peeling process. The doctor may also prescribe antibiotics or antiviral drugs to ensure that the process is not having any side effects.

    How is it actually done?

    Chemical peels are usually done after a proper cleansing of the skin and then choosing the appropriate type of peel to suit your skin type. After cleansing of the skin the doctor usually applies a chemical solution such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol) - to small areas of your skin. The peeling process usually lasts for a few minutes and the chemical helps in making controlled wounds on the skin in order to damage the old skin and allow the new skin to grow.

    Factors You Need to Consider Before Opting for Breast Implants

    Breast health is a common concern among a lot of women these days. Not just due to medical reasons like breast cancer and others, a woman may choose to get a breast implant done for other reasons as well, particularly for cosmetic reasons like enhancing her appearance and giving her femininity the best shot.

    But here are a few factors that you should consider before opting for breast implants.

    1. Size of the implant

    The size of the implant can affect your daily life to a large extent; therefore, you need to decide on it judiciously. Consider the nature of your work and the kind of lifestyle that you lead, and accordingly take a decision regarding the size of your implant. This is important because added weight and volume to your breasts can significantly impact your movement. So, choose a size that allows you to lead a comfortable and free life post the implant.

    2. Material of the implant

    Breast implant can be of two types, namely saline implant and silicone implant.

    Saline implants are nothing but silicone shells filled with either salt water or sterile saline water. They are safer because it is easier to detect when they break. However, they can easily wrinkle.

    On the other hand, silicone options are implants that are filled with silicone gel. They feel more natural than saline implants, but the ruptures are harder to detect. They need a lot of post-implant care, which includes regular medical checkups and MRIs.

    Therefore, choose the kind of implant you wish to opt for carefully according to your personal preferences.

    3. Recovery period

    Since breast implantation is a surgical procedure, it takes time for your body to adjust with the intervention, recover and get back to being normal. Therefore, consider adjusting your schedule and the recovery period to avoid any inconvenience.

    4. Awareness is the key

    Although technology has significantly advanced in the recent days, it is not free from flaws. Doctors and researchers are continuously working to reduce the complications and risks associated with the procedure, yet it is best for you to be aware of all the risks to minimize the loss.

    How are birthmarks usually treated?

    Birthmarks are dark spots/blemishes that are present at birth or appear soon after. Most of them are harmless and while some disappear with time, some don't. Birthmarks may cause a person to be conscious of their appearance and some types of marks may even pose health problems. You can opt for birthmark removal for cosmetic or health reasons.

    Types of birthmarks

    The two major types of birthmarks are vascular birthmarks, which are caused due to the incorrect formation of blood vessels; and pigmented birthmarks that are caused due to an overgrowth of pigmentation cells.

    Common vascular birthmarks are 3 types:

    - Haemangiomas: Bright red or bluish marks that may appear above or below the skin's surface.
    - Port-wine stains: They are discolorations found mainly on the neck, face arms or legs, which look like wine was spilled on that area of the body.
    - Macular stains: These are faint red marks often found on the forehead, eyelids, nape of the neck, nose or the upper lip.

    Pigmented birthmarks are generally of 3 types- Cafe-au-lait spots, which are common coffee colored spots; Mongolian spots that are flat, bluish-gray patches on the lower back or buttocks; and moles that may be tan or black, flat or raised and may have hair growing out of them. Moles may develop into skin cancer.

    So, in cases where a birthmark can be potentially fatal for your health, it's best to get it removed.

    Here are the different ways you can choose from if you intend to get your birthmark removed.

    1. Laser surgery

    It's a widely popular birthmark procedure, especially for port-wine stains. A yellow light laser, called flashlamp pumped a dye laser, is commonly used for treating and removing birthmarks in children. Haemangiomas are generally treated with a pulsed eye laser when they start to grow in size and become thicker than before.

    2. Surgery

    Surgical excision can help remove a birthmark and minimize the resulting scar. Mongolian birthmarks, port-wine stains, and haemangiomas can be treated with surgery.

    3. Cryosurgery and Electrodessication

    Cryosurgery is the application of extreme cold to the affected area to destroy the diseased tissue. Electrodessication refers to the destruction of tissues by dehydration induced by a high-frequency electric current.

    How Safe is Laser Surgery for Facial Hair Removal?

    Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser, which is an intense, pulsating beam of light to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Although laser hair removal slows hair growth, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal. It takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to provide hair-free skin. Laser surgery for facial hair removal helps your skin look younger and healthier by treating aging, acne, and blotches, scars, wrinkles, lines or excess hair on the face.

    This surgery comes with its own share of benefits, which are:

    - First of all, laser hair removal is precise. The laser only targets the pigmented area of the skin on your face, such as the hair follicle. This is why only the hair follicle is burned and not the skin surrounding the area, making it a safe procedure.

    - Laser hair removal is most effective on the hairs in the early part of the hair growing stage. A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair follicle. The laser then converts its energy into heat and heats up the hair follicle preventing it from growing any further.

    - Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair from your face at the speed of light. The laser is designed to treat several hairs in a large surface area, all at the same time. There is no downtime after the service and no sticky residue left behind.

    - The pain factor varies from person to person because every person has a different level of pain tolerance. Laser surgery is described as feeling like a gentle pinch or like the snap of a warm rubber band.

    - Laser hair removal has many benefits that make it a viable option for many people to permanently deal with unwanted hair. You can ask many questions during your consultation to make sure you fully understand the procedure they use and how they deal with the treatment of pain.

    Even though laser hair removal surgery on the face is largely safe, there are certain very minor side effects that are associated with it that you need to keep in mind before opting for it. The risks involved with laser surgery occur very rarely including a change in skin tone, burns, and blistering. If performed correctly by a trained professional with a lot of experience, laser surgery for hair removal is very safe. You may have slight redness or local swelling on the treatment area of your face that typically resolves within several hours. Limiting your exposure to the sun before and after treatment can minimize the risk of complications.

    Is Hair Transplant Surgery a Lasting Option?

    Hair transplant surgery is the technique wherein hair is taken out from other parts of your body and grafted on the scalp to treat baldness. Basically, these are such hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding; therefore, they serve as a permanent treatment for hair loss. Experts believe that in most cases, hair transplant surgery is a lasting option.

    How long does the transplant last?

    If you are worried about the length of time for which your hair transplant will last, you can be assured that it may even last a lifetime. Only a few among the transplanted hair are lost with time but this loss is not very noticeable.

    Reason why hair transplant surgery can be considered as a lasting option

    Hair transplant surgery is naturally a lasting and safe treatment for hair loss, as the chances for your body to reject the intervention in the form of implanted hair is minimal. This is because the technique that is used involves taking your own hair out from the follicle roots, (mostly from areas like the neck or the back and sides of your head) where they are not needed so much and place them in specially designed holes in the bald areas. Since no external factors are involved, the body does not tend to reject the transplant.

    Supplementary Treatment

    Hair transplant surgery is anyway a lasting option but just as everything else, it may require a little care over time. Hair may still be lost from those parts of your head that have not been subject to the implantation, so those areas do require little efforts in order for you to maintain the overall results. Occasional touch-up sessions along with easy, non-surgical treatments such as laser therapy, rogaine, and Propecia would ensure a permanent and lasting solution to all your problems related to hair loss and baldness. Such supplementary treatment solidifies the hair follicles that have been transplanted and also decreases the chances of hair loss from hair follicles that were not treated during transplantation.
