Sir, I have dark circles beneath my eyes, can you please recommend me any cream or such because natural things I tried but no results came.
I am 24 year old male. I am suffering form hair loss problem. My grand father also have lost his hairs. Although my father doesnt have hair loss problem. I am taking ambay nutrilite supplements like nutrilite daily, omega 3 for almost a year. It has helps me to recover hair thinning and some hair regrow but hair fall problem doesnt stoped. I have consulted a famous doctor in patna - he said that my hair texturre is in upward direction and it will hard to regrow hair back. He prescribe me a anti-dandruff shampoo, a sow palmetto capsules and a tugain 5.0 for use in hair. But saw palmetto doesnt has any effect after consuming it for a month. I quit it. Then I turned for nautual remedy, now for last two months I am using egg white+honey, yogurt+honey+orange peel powder in my hair two days in a week. Its helped me a lot recovering from hair fall and it has controlled very much now, but as soon as summer arrived for last 15 days the hair fall started again. I want to know what should I do now should I take another medicine, should I continue to take ambay multivitamin or what to do. Help me. Sir.
Please suggest me some good shampoo for hair care as I want to grow healthy hair m suffering with extreme hairloss.
Meri body ka rang kala ho raha hai. Sir mai gora kaise ho skta hu in some days. Pls help me what should I do?
A tattoo has a strong emotional association with the person having it. Commonly it is the loved ones name, idols, quotes or just anything that a person feels connected to. However, over time, it may happen that the tattoo may not hold the same relevance as it used to once upon a time. It could also lose its aesthetic appeal it once held. Whatever the reason, the tattoo needs to go. While tattoos were considered something permanent, there are now ways to remove it.
While the earlier methods were crude including removing the tattooed skin and grafting new skin, sanding the area, or dermabrasion; but today with the use of laser, the process has become much simpler and convenient. Laser is now the most widely used method of removing the tattoo.
A thorough evaluation to see the extent of the tattoo, in terms of depth, size and colors, is done before planning its removal. The type, strength and sessions of lasers will depend on these factors.
During the removal, the tattooed area is focused with a handheld device that emits laser light of the desired frequency and strength. This removes the colored pigments of the tattoo without affecting the surrounding skin. Different wavelengths of light are used to remove different pigments, which get broken down. These pigments are then washed out from the body as wastes.
Depending on the size and colors used in the tattoo, more than one sitting may be required. For large ones, up to 6 to 8 months may be required for complete removal. A minimum of 4 weeks gap is required between two sittings, allowing sufficient time for the skin to heal.
Professional vs Amateur Tattoos
Professional applied tattoos penetrate deeper into the skin at uniform levels which can make it easier to treat, but not always, as the ink is usually more dense. Amateur tattoos are often applied with an uneven hand which can make the removal challenging but overall they are easier to remove.
Risks and Side Effects
There are a handful of symptoms you might see post-treatment. Among them are blisters, swelling, raising of the tattoo, pinpoint bleeding, redness, and/or temporary darkening. Not to worry, though. These are common and usually subside within one to two weeks. If they don't, talk to your doctor.
- The way getting tattoo caused some pain, the removal will also cause some pain. Topical or local anaesthesia is used to make it comfortable.
- Not just the tattoo pigment but also some of the natural skin pigment is lost, so the skin can become lighter or darker than the surrounding skin.
- In some cases, there could be some scarring. The scar will get better and can be treated after tattoo laser sessions.
So, if you thought a tattoo is forever, it is not so. Go ahead and plan for its removal, of course after understanding what it entails.
