Overview

Anti Snake Injection

Manufacturer: Serum Institute Of India Ltd
Medicine composition: Hemocoagulase
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Anti Snake Injection consists of an important enzyme that is obtained from venomous snakes. It is used as a drug that helps in the coagulation of blood, in order to prevent fatal risks of hemorrhages. Enzymes present in the drug convert the fibrinogen present in the body into fibrin by splitting off the serine group present in the fibrinogen molecules. The fibrin then combines with blood platelets to form hemostatic clots that stop blood flow and prevent hemorrhages.

Usually used to stop bleeding after surgeries it can causes side effects like anaphylactic shock in case of severe allergic reaction by the body’s immune system. While these are the possible side effects that can happen, their occurrence is extremely rare. The risk of these side effects however increases in case you have certain health conditions or are using health supplements, over the counter drugs like Reserpine, Sulfadimethoxine, etc. The drug is contraindicated in case of thrombotic or embolic episodes where blood clots may travel to the brain via the blood stream. Before taking Anti Snake Injection you must therefore consult with a qualified doctor to prevent the possibility of any complications, especially so if you are suffering from any pre existing disease or are pregnant, planning a pregnancy.

Treatments for Anti Aging

The allure to look young is always compelling and the recent advancements in medical technology have resulted in many procedures, which can help you knock off years. In fact skin care related to anti aging is one of the largest and fastest growing industries within the medical realm.

Let's take a look at some of the procedures which are very effective in anti aging skin treatment:

  1. Specialized Chemical Peels: In this procedure a doctor will put specially formulated acids on the area of your skin, which needs to be treated. This results in the abrasion or slight burning of the skin after, which new skin cells grow in its place, hence removing age related spots, wrinkles as well as freckles.
  2. Injection of Botulinum Toxin Type A or Botox: This is possibly one of the most famous and well known anti aging treatments all over the world. This treatment involves injecting Botox into strategic areas of the face to reduce wrinkles and creases that may occur due to aging. This treatment is especially effective for frown lines on the forehead and close to eye corners.
  3. Laser Resurfacing and or other Radio Frequency Treatments: These machine related treatments also use the principle of abrasion or wounding the skin to encourage the growth of new tissue. In laser resurfacing, a laser beam destroys the epidermis or the outer layer of the skin and heats up the dermis or the lower layer of the skin. As the wounded skin tissue heals, new tissue takes it place which is tighter, thus giving you a younger look.
  4. Facelift surgery: It is a cosmetic surgical procedure, which takes quite some time to heal but is known to have long term results. In this procedure, excess skin and fat from your face and neck are removed surgically and after the bruising and the scarring have subsided, the new skin is much tighter thus making you look much younger.
  5. Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion: These procedures employ the abrasion tactic to the fullest to destroy old tissue and encourage the growth of new tissue. Dermabrasion uses the technique of sanding the skin with a rotating brush where new skin needs to grow. Microdermabrasion is a more subtle technique as it uses finer equipment to sand away only the top layer of skin and the side effects of redness, swelling and scabbing tend to be lesser compared to conventional Dermabrasion.
  6. Other Soft Skin Tissues Filler Injections: There are many other forms of soft skin tissue fillers other than Botox, which can be directly injected into the required area. Some of these are fats, gels and collagen which can be directly injected into wrinkles. These fillers work by swelling and plumping up the area around the skin to give it smoother look. However, these treatments also need to be done at frequent periodic intervals of a few months.
