With age, fat under the skin dissolves and causes significant volume loss. This can lead to the development of wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging on your face. Modern medicine has however, found a way to hide these signs of aging. A non-surgical facelift can fill these empty spaces under your skin to add volume to your face and help regain your youthfulness.
As the name suggests, a non-surgical facelift is non-invasive. It involves the injecting of dermal fillers into the affected area. This procedure should not take more than half an hour and shows almost instantaneous results. The most common areas where the filler is injected are the temporal hollows, cheek, submalar, nose, naso labial folds, marionette lines, oral commisure and chin and jaw line. This procedure has no major side effects. However, to be on the safe side, minimize touching the injection site for upto 2 weeks after the procedure.
There are three types of dermal fillers used for non surgical face lifts.
- Hyaluronic acid is the standard dermal filler used for such procedures. The affect lasts for 6 months to a year depending on the area it is injected into. The more the area covered, the shorter will be the duration of the benefit. Once the effects of the facelift begin to fade, the procedure will have to be repeated to maintain the youthful look. Hyaluronic acid is also said to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
- Synthetic fillers can also be used for a non surgical facelift. The effects of these fillers are more long-lasting and can maintain facial volume for up to 18 months. However, synthetic fillers can trigger the formation of lumps under the skin that will need to be surgically removed. The structure of the skin can also change with age, leaving odd shapes at the sites where synthetic fillers have been injected.
- The third type of dermal filler used is the patient’s own fat. Fat from another part of the body is extracted and then injected into the face to increase its volume. While the effects of this type of dermal filler can last for 5 to 10 years, there is also a possibility of the fat being reabsorbed into the body within a few months of the procedure. Fat transfer dermal fillers are also the most expensive type of fillers.
Hello Doctor, I am feeling slight discomfort in my right shoulder from past 2-3 years. It feels like the shoulder blade is slightly out of place. Although there is no pain but I need to adjust my shoulder again and again to avoid discomfort which becomes very awkward in public places. Please suggest a suitable remedy.
Bedwetting or nocturnal enuresis, refers to the unintentional passage of urine during sleep. Enuresis is the medical term for wetting, whether in the clothing during the day or in bed at night. Another name for enuresis is urinary incontinence. For infants and young children, urination is involuntary. Wetting is normal for them. Most children achieve some degree of bladder control by 4 years of age. Daytime control is usually achieved first, while nighttime control comes later.
The age at which bladder control is expected varies considerably. Some parents expect dryness at a very early age, while others not until much later. Such a time line may reflect the culture and attitudes of the parents and caregivers.
Factors that affect the age at which wetting is considered a problem include the following:
- The child's gender: bedwetting is more common in boys.
- The child's development and maturity
- The child's overall physical and emotional health. Chronic illness and/or emotional and physical abuse may predispose to bedwetting.
No one knows for sure what causes bed-wetting, but various factors may play a role:
- A small bladder: your child's bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night.
- Inability to recognize a full bladder: if the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child, especially if your child is a deep sleeper.
- A hormone imbalance: during childhood, some kids don't produce enough anti-diuretic hormone (adh) to slow nighttime urine production.
- Stress: stressful events, such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home, may trigger bed-wetting.
- Urinary tract infection: this infection can make it difficult for your child to control urination.
- Sleep apnea: sometimes bed-wetting is a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition in which the child's breathing is interrupted during sleep.
- Diabetes: for a child who's usually dry at night, bed-wetting may be the first sign of diabetes.
- A structural problem in the urinary tract or nervous system. Rarely, bed-wetting is related to a defect in the child's neurological system or urinary system.
- Wetting during the day
- Frequency, urgency, or burning on urination
- Straining, dribbling, or other unusual symptoms with urination
- Cloudy or pinkish urine, or blood stains on underpants or pajamas
- Soiling, being unable to control bowel movements
Most kids are fully toilet trained by age 5, but there's really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of 5 and 7, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children. After 7 years of age, a small number of children still wet the bed.
When to see a doctor: most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own, but some need a little help. In other cases, bed-wetting may be a sign of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.
Consult your child's doctor if:
- Your child still wets the bed after age 7
- Your child starts to wet the bed after a few months or more of being dry at night
- Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring
- Here are some tips for helping your child stop wetting the bed. These are techniques that are most often successful
- Reduce evening fluid intake.
- The child should urinate in the toilet before bedtime.
- A system of sticker charts and rewards works for some children.
- Make sure the child has safe and easy access to the toilet.
- Some believe that you should avoid using diapers or pull-ups at home because they can interfere with the motivation to wake up and use the toilet.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Also known as nocturnal enuresis, is the involuntary urination during sleep in children over the age of 5 years, when the child should be able to control his or her bladder.
The problem will most likely resolve itself over time & single episode of bedwetting is not a concern. It can be difficult to figureout why child can't seem to wake up during the night & use toilet when previously this was not an issue. The common term for this is secondary bedwetting. Due to psychological stress or some underlying medical conditions child may start experiencing nighttime wetness.
- Small bladder.
- Infection in bladder or kidneys.
- Defect in urethral valves in boys or in ureter in girls or boys.
- Type 1 diabetes.
- Chronic constipation: full rectum can put pressure on the bladder.
- Caffeine intake like soda, coffee & chocolate.
- Children with down syndrome, developmental delays.
- Difficulty waking up from sleep.
Mental & emotional causes like:
- improper or stressful toilet training.
- new fear or insecurities such as arrival of a new baby, or a new school, sleeping away from home, moving into a new home, losing family member, parents divorce, sexual abuse, being punished, feeling rejected.
- in most cases there is usually no cause to be found. It is just that the child ends up wetting in bed. This is quite embarrasing for child itself. No child wants to urinate in bed. It has to be understood by the parents that the child is unable to fully gain control over his or her bladder, so there will be no benefits from blaming the child.
- also, make sure that the child does not take too much of liquid at night just before going to bed.
- another thing that help is that he or she urinates just before going to bed.
- high sugar & caffine based drinks should be avoided in children with enuresis, particularly in the evening hours.
- the routine use of diapers & pull-ups can interfere with motivation for getting up at night and is generally discouraged.
Homoeopathy has been found to be very successful in treating bedwetting. The aim is to strengthen the nervous system of the body. This allows the child to gain control over the urinary bladder.
In homoeopathic treatment, children's likes, dislikes, behaviour, fears & causes of disease such as stress, infections, chronic constipation, diabetes, genetic disorders are completely recognized and by providing genetic constitutional medicines urinary bladder functioning will be improved and gain control over the involuntary urination problem while awake or asleep.
Weight Loss by Yoga; A different weight loss experience
Yoga, an ancient discipline involving physical poses, breath work, and mindfulness techniques, is the most commonly used nondietary or supplement complementary and alternative therapy for weight loss. In clinical trials, yoga has improved a number of obesity-related outcomes including BMI, body weight, body fat, and waist circumference.Individuals who practice yoga report that yoga helps to improve diet and body weight and studies involving long-term yoga practitioners have found an inverse relationship between frequency of yoga practice and levels of obesity. In a research study of 15,550 adults, individuals who practiced yoga for at least four years were two to four times less likely to gain weight as they aged than individuals who did not practice yoga.
Yoga interventions were found to be effective for achieving weight loss and improving body composition and the most effective programs were residential and longer in duration, required more frequent and home practice, included a yogic diet, and incorporated a variety of yoga practices as opposed to exclusively focusing on a single practice such as the physical poses or breath work.

Lichen planus is a skin rash triggered by the immune system. It’s not known why the immune response occurs. There may be several contributing factors, and each case is different. Potential causes include:
- Viral infections
Sometimes lichen planus occurs along with autoimmune disorders. While it may be uncomfortable, in most cases lichen planus is not a serious condition. It’s also not contagious.
However, there are some rare variations of the condition that may be serious and painful. These conditions can be treated with topical and oral medications to reduce symptoms, or by using drugs that suppress the immune system.
Symptoms of lichen planus
- Purplish-colored lesions or bumps with flat tops on your skin or genitals
- Lesions that develop and spread over the body over the course of several weeks or a few months
- Itching at the site of the rash
- Lacy-white lesions in the mouth, which may be painful or cause a burning sensation
- Blisters, which burst and become scabby
- Thin white lines over the rash
The most common type of lichen planus affects the skin. Over the course of several weeks, lesions appear and spread. The condition usually clears up within 6 to 16 months.
Less commonly, the lesions can occur in areas besides the skin or genitals. These may include:
- Mucous membranes
- The scalp
There are also variations of the condition more common in the middle east, asia, africa, and latin america.
What are the causes and risk factors?
Lichen planus develops when your body attacks your skin or mucous membrane cells by mistake. Doctors are not sure why this happens.
Lichen planus can occur in anyone at any age, but there are certain factors that make some people more likely to develop the condition. The skin form of lichen planus occurs in men and women equally, but women are twice as likely to get the oral form. It’s very rare in children and older adults. It’s most common in middle-aged people.
Other risk factors include having family members who’ve had lichen planus, having a viral disease like hepatitis c, or being exposed to certain chemicals that act as allergens. These allergens may include:
- Iodide compounds
- Certain kinds of dyes
- Other medications
- Diagnosis of lichen planus
Anytime you see or feel a rash on your skin or lesions in your mouth or on your genitals, you should see your doctor as soon as possible. Your primary care doctor may send you to a dermatologist if a diagnosis of lichen planus is not obvious, or if your symptoms are making you very uncomfortable.
Your primary care doctor or dermatologist may be able to tell that you have lichen planus simply by looking at your rash. To confirm the diagnosis, you may need further tests.
Tests could include a biopsy, which means taking a small sample of your skin cells to view under a microscope, or an allergy test to find out if you’re having an allergic reaction. If your doctor suspects the underlying cause is an infection, you may need to have a test for hepatitis c.
Treating lichen planus
For mild cases of lichen planus, which usually clear up in weeks or months, you may not need any treatment. If the symptoms are uncomfortable or severe, your doctor can prescribe medication.
There is no cure for lichen planus, but medications that treat the symptoms are helpful and some may even be able to target a possible underlying cause. Medications often prescribed include:
- Retinoids, which are related to vitamin a and are taken topically or orally
- Corticosteroids reduce inflammation and can be topical, oral, or given as an injection
- Antihistamines reduce inflammation and may be particularly helpful if your rash is triggered by an allergen
- Nonsteroidal creams are applied topically and can suppress your immune system and help clear up the rash
- Light therapy treats lichen planus with ultraviolet light
There are other things you can try at home to complement your prescription treatments. These include:
- Soaking in an oatmeal bath
- Avoiding scratching
- Applying cool compresses to the rash
- Using otc anti-itch creams
Talk to your doctor before adding otc products to your treatment plan. This way you’ll be certain that nothing you might take will interact with prescription medications you’re taking.
