Cut a large lemon in half. Squeeze out some of the juice from both halves so that you have two hollow halves or "cups. Apply this on joint. You can rub away any excess pulp, but don't wash your for about 3 hours. Wash off the lemon juice with some warm water. Repeat this every day until the dark skin begins to fade.

When I was young I forced my foreskin down before it was ready to detach. Now I have scar tissue where the foreskin detached. The scars don't bother me however just after i'm done ejaculating my foreskin gets really tight sometimes so tight my penis gets extremely small to the point where it looks like i've been outside in the cold. My penis is a little over average length 16 cm (6.3 inches) and a decent amount greater than average 15-16 cm (6 inches) but my penis gets a lot smaller when this happens.

Almost half of men in the study (45 percent) believed they had a small penis, yet the researchers reported that small penis size was actually rare. Actually according to a study penis width is more important to sexual satisfaction than penis length. You should not worry about the size of your penis, as long as it is fertile and able to satisfy your sex desires.

Subcision is adviced in depressed scars as you have mentioned, so for that you need to have depression for it to elevate. It works more in acne scars. Surgical scars will mostly not respond to subcision. I need to have scar photo to quide you better. There are many other way of scar management, to improve its quality and looks.

Dermabrasion - All You Must Know!

Dermabrasion - All You Must Know!

Dermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure to resurface the uppermost layer of the skin which contains dirt and dead cells. This cosmetic procedure is suggested to the patients with fine lines, patches, scars, or pores. The procedure is done by using a rolling device which is rolled on the skin and the dirt or dead layer is removed.

While undergoing the dermabrasion procedure, the doctors will numb your skin area. You can also be given general anaesthesia depending upon the length and complication of the procedure. The skin looks pink and sensitive for a week after the treatment. This treatment can be suggested along with other cosmetic procedure as well.

Reasons

Dermabrasion is done to correct the skin defects like:

● The appearance of fine lines
● Resurfacing the dull skin and dead cells
● Smoothening of skin
● Lightening the scars due to surgery and acne
● Lightening and brightening of patches and other marks on the face
● Uneven skin tone
● To treat damaged and red skin

Dermabrasion helps in skin problems which are not due to inflammation and radiation. However, if you have swollen skin, inflamed pores, and radiation pores, then dermabrasion will not be suggested by your doctor.

Risks

Dermabrasion can cause following mentioned side effects:

● Redness and swelling in the skin are common after the procedure. These symptoms will decrease within a week.
● Enlarged pores are also a common side effect of dermabrasion. Since the upper layer of the skin is removed, the simulated skin leaves the pores enlarged. Your doctor will recommend some medicines for the
same.
● You will notice tiny white bumps like acne. These will usually disappear within three or four days.

Everybody’s skin reaction is different to Dermabrasion. Very rarely, dermabrasion defects the skin after a treatment. But you should follow the doctor’s instructions to avoid bacterial infection or scarring. If dermabrasion is done deeply, it may lead to some skin reactions, which will slowly decrease with the doctors prescribed treatment. You will be called for the appointment soon after treatment.

When Are You Suggested Dermabrasion?

Not everybody is suggested for dermabrasion. If you are on some skin medication like thinning of skin or steroids, you will not be suggested for dermabrasion by your doctor. It is recommended by the doctor only after:

Physical examination: Physical exams are conducted by the cosmetic doctor to look into your skin conditions. They also look for the thickness in the skin and the affected area. If the problem can be treated with medicines and creams, then dermabrasion is denied.

Medical history: Complete study of medical history is important for the doctor before undergoing for dermabrasion. They may ask you some questions pertaining to the medical conditions in the past and in the family.

Condition of the skin: Doctors do not suggest dermabrasion on the first visit. The first criteria of the doctors is to make your skin ready for the procedure. This is done by looking into the problems, listening to your expectations, and examining the affected area of the skin.
