My skin tone is a bit darker. Had been to a skin specialist who adviced me to use Aha Glow face wash and a sunscreen SPF 50. Now the skin is better but I need a fairer tone. The color hasn't come back yet.

Snow Cell Therapy - How It Is Beneficial For Skin?

Snow Cell Therapy - How It Is Beneficial For Skin?

Everyone wants a clear, flawless skin. However, not everyone is blessed with such skin. Most of us find ourselves fighting against pimples, dark spots, acne scars, etc. from time to time. The good news is that even if you weren’t born with clear skin, there are treatments that can give you the glow you dream of. Snow Cell Therapy is one such form of skin treatment.

This type of therapy aims at removing toxins from your body and in turn whitening your skin. It can even out dark spots, lower the impact of dark lips and help treat age spots, dark circles and other such skin flaws. Additionally, it offers a long-term solution to wrinkles. However, it cannot be used to treat skin problems caused by hormonal issues such as acne. This is because it does not influence hormone levels in the body.

Snow cell therapy involves the use of glutathione that must be injected into the skin. Glutathione is a naturally occurring element that is produced by the body, but in very low amounts. It also contains minerals that boost the levels of Vitamin C and a number of other amino acids. This injection must be given intravenously. The injection is administered with quick impacts that quickly distributes the medicine throughout the body. Delivering medication in this way makes the therapy more effective than other skin whitening techniques such as pills and topical creams.

When undergoing snow cell therapy, it is essential to consult a certified dermatologist. This is because this form of therapy may have a few side effects if not performed correctly. You must ensure that fresh needles are used so as to avoid the transmission of diseases. In some cases, patients who are injected with the medication more than thrice a week may complain of stomach aches. Long-term use of this medication may also cause skin malignancy, rashes and hives.

Overall, this form of treatment has a high success rate. The results are not only quick, but are also permanent. However, to maintain the effects of the treatment, follow-up visits may be required.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you stop using nothing will happen, but applying it will enhance and clear your skin. Either you apply Berberis Aquafolia mother tincture all over your face at night daily, or you can use glycerine with few drops of Mother tincture daily at night before going to bed and wash it off in the morning.

Rectal Polyps - What Should Be The Right Treatment For It?

Rectal Polyps - What Should Be The Right Treatment For It?

Did you know that polyp formation is one of the common ailments of the large intestine, affecting close to 5-10 per cent of the population? Although majority of the polyps are asymptomatic in nature and do not form into cancer, it is important that you stay alert.

What is the disease all about?
When an abnormal growth arises from the lining of the rectum or colon, a polyp formation develops in the area. Rectum constitutes the last 12 inches of the intestine. It can be flat or take the shape of a broccoli. The latter is known as a pedunculated polyp. This being said, there is a small percentage of polyps that can turn into cancer over a span of 8-10 years. It is estimated that 95% of rectal cancers generate from polyps. Certain factors such as the size and type of the polyp decide the malignant nature of polyps. It is also dependent on the pre-cancerous changes.

The different types of polyps
There are 3 types of polyps. The first type of polyp is known as a tabular adenoma. This form has a 5 percent probability of turning into cancer. The second form of polyp is referred to as Tubulo-villous adenoma. There is a 20 percent risk of this form of polyp turning into cancer. The third form is known as a Villous adenoma. In terms of polyp size, there is a 1 percent risk factor involved of getting cancer in the polyp size is greater than 1 cm. Polyps that are in the range of 1-2 cm, has a 10 percent chance of turning into cancer. For the ones that are greater than 2 cm, there is a 40 percent probability of cancer.

Symptoms
Not too many symptoms are associated with rectal polyps. However, there are certain symptoms which are evident signs of rectal polyps. Some of them include bloody stool, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, mucous discharge, diarrhoea, constipation etc.

A word on the diagnosis
A digital rectal exam or sigmoidoscopy can identify rectal polyps. They can also be identified with x-ray, colonoscopy, barium enema etc. During the process of colonoscopy, doctors focus on the changes in the lining of the colon. Although there is no full proof method of detecting polyps, most doctors rely on a combination of the above-mentioned techniques to lock in on the diagnosis.

The right treatment
Many polyps can be removed immediately at the time of colonoscopy. This method can prevent cancer and help a person avoid unnecessary complications. If the polyp is too large, a surgical intervention might be required. If the location of the polyp is situated in the lower portion of the rectum, it can be eradicated by a process known as transanal excision. If the polyp is located higher above the rectum, it is generally removed by a process known as Trans Anal Minimally Invasive Surgery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.

Slice a raw potato (after refrigerating for a couple of minutes) into two and circle the closed eyes gently with those halves. Place it on your eyes so that it also covers the puffed ares under your eyes and leave it like that for 15-20 minutes. You'll notice a tremendous change in those bags as they'll be diminished in size. Or Take chilled water in a bowl and add a few drops of vitamin E oil to it, now mix the two well. Dip cotton pads in this mixture and place on the eyes for 20 minutes, this well help in reducing the swelling around the eyes.

Use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash daily use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Hello, is it an injury mark or some other mark? apply homoeopathic - thiosinaminum ointment to your scar in a thin layer or else you can use thiosinaminum q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin. Also take causticum 200 orally/ thrice daily for 2 weeks, to dissolve large, extensive scars. The oral dose supports the action of the topical application.
