I have developed dark patches on my elbows because of constant friction. I work on laptop for more than 12-14 hours a day and mostly it's the result of that. It would great if any of the dermatologist can suggest a cream that can be applied on the problem area to get rid off the patches. Thanks, Peeali.

Hi lybrate-user, thanks for the query. It's better to use olive oil rather than any cream. This condition is like callosities. Oil will help you to make it smooth and use of any body scrub pure herb will remove the thicker skin and bring the normal texture.

Tummy Fat - Can Surgery Be Considered to Reduce it?

Are your regular exercises and the strict diet proving futile on your quest for a tighter and a flatter tummy? You can consider getting an 'abdominoplasty' or 'tummy tuck' done. This cosmetic surgery helps in flattening your abdomen by taking off the extra skin and fat and tightening up the muscles in the walls of your abdomen.

The procedure
1. The first step involves choosing a surgeon for consultation.
2. There are two types of tummy tuck surgery, both carried out under general anesthesia. Complete abdominoplasty whereby, your surgeon would dissect your abdomen from one hipbone to the other and then give an outline to your muscle, tissue and skin. Mini or partial abdominoplasty are recommended for people whose fat deposits are underneath their naval region.

Complete Abdominoplasty
Complete Abdominoplasty involves making a big incision around the lower part of the tummy from one hip to another, making a second cut in order to free the belly of the tissue that surrounds that region, separating the skin from the walls around the abdomen, re-aligning the muscles in the abdomen, removing the supplementary skin and fat and then pulling forth the skin remains and stitching them too.

Partial Abdominoplasty
Partial Abdominoplasty requires making a large cut on the lower belly, separating the skin from your abdominal wall, cutting out the excess fat, removing the additional skin and holding the remaining part of the skin together and finally stitching it in place.

Time taken for the surgery
The surgery may stretch from one to about five hours.

Pre-requisites

You will have to cut down on the consumption of alcohol and especially smoking; smoking leads to more complication and slows down the healing process.
It is recommended to have a well-balanced meal before the surgery.
After-care

You may suffer from swelling and pain in the days after the surgery, for which your doctor would prescribe pain-killers.
Regardless of the type of surgery conducted, the portion that was operated on would be stitched and bandaged. Therefore, it is very important to abide by the surgeon s instructions about how you should take care of the dressing in the days to follow.

Hi, it is normal for benign breast lumps to enlarge rapidly during pregnancy. They usually don't turn into cancer. They enlarge secondary to the hormonal changes durimg that time and may regress back later. But if you still have a large persistent lump, please do consult a surgeon in person as a clinical examination will reveal a lot more. And if needed you can get it removed. Most importantly, your doubt regardin cancer will be clarified. Hope his helps. Take care.

7 Botox Myths - How True are They?

Botox is no longer confined to the celebrities and the rich and famous, it has become quite common in indian households today.

It is a minimally invasive procedure and a number of myths are associated with it. If you are thinking of having botox treatment for yourself, then let us help you make an informed choice:

7 botox myths how true are they?

A number of misconception are involved with botox, just do not believe them unless you get information from a reliable source like a dermatologist who is actively involved in giving botox treatments.

Some of the common myths are as under:
1. Botox will freeze the face
A common hearsay is that botox will freeze your face. You will lose your natural facial expressions. Botox does not make your face entirely expressionless, botox helps in curbing your dynamic wrinkles and prevents them to become static.
2. Wrinkles are barred forever
Botox temporarily delays the wrinkles and smoothes your face. It removes facial lines for some time, obviously not forever. The effect of botox wanes away in 3 to 6 months. It gives you a wrinkle free face but temporarily.
3. Botox is for older women
Another common myth is that botox is for older women. But this is not true as botox offers tremendous help in cases of premature aging and wrinkle development. It helps you in maintaining your youth and at the same time gives you confidence. Everyone is aging but botox helps you to age gracefully.
4. Botox is dangerous
A general notion is that botox is dangerous. There is simply not true. Instead botox is quite useful in the treatment of debilitating medical ailments like headaches, back pain cerebral palsy, etc. You need to get the botrox treatment done from a trained and qualified dermatologist or cosmetologists to get the best out of the treatment.
5. Botox will make the face immovable
This is perhaps the commonest misconception about botox. It is true that botox restricts muscle movement to some extent but this is temporary and goes off in a couple of days. Your face is back to its normal movements and expressions. Frozen face is no longer common; provide you get the treatment form a qualified doctor.
6. Swelling, pain and bruising
You may experience pain and redness at the injection site. They are completely gone in 2-3 days. Botox gives you great phenomenal results and minimal discomfort.
7. Botox has a lot of side effects
It is general perception that a number of side effects are associated with botox injections. This is completely false. The common side-effects are fatigue, nausea or headache. Rest all is wrong.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM (BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Egg white works well in order to lighten the pimple marks and the pimple scars. Take a fresh egg and break the egg, separate the egg white from the egg yolk. Apply this egg white on the pimple marks. After 10-15 minutes, wash with the cold water. Baking Soda Take some baking soda. Mix some water with the baking soda and apply this mixture on the pimple marks. Baking soda serves as an agent that carries out micro dermabrasion on the skin and helps to clear the pimple marks on the face and body. Tomatoes Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin A, which helps nourish the dead skin while rejuvenating it. Vitamin A helps by healing the skin and by helping facilitate quick growth of the skin while removing the scars. Using tomatoes to help heal the scars on the skin is not a lengthy process, but it is rather simple. Just take a tomato, slice it and make it into a pulp. Apply the pulp on the face and leave it on for twenty minutes’ time. Then, wash it off with some warm water. You could also mix cucumbers with it. Make a paste out of all of cucumbers and tomatoes and apply as a face mask. Leave it on for half an hour and wash it with some cool water. Follow this method two days at a time every week and observe the results.
