The first and foremost step to lighten your complexion includes avoiding too much sun exposure. Typically, the skin darkens when exposed to sunlight because it produces a substance, called melanin, to protect itself from the harmful solar radiation. Melanin is the pigment that gives color to our hair, eyes, and skin. And the more melanin your skin makes, the darker your skin becomes. Its also great to use sunscreen every time you go outside. As far as lightening products, you can try creams and soaps that contain kojic acid, glutathione, aplha-arbutin, licorice extract, mulberry extract, and Vitamins C, E, and B3. You can also try certain natural remedies such as lemons. Squeeze the juice from a lemon, dip a cotton ball into the juice, apply it on your face, then rinse off after 10-15 minutes. Same way ,you may try potato. Peel the potato, cut it into small pieces, then apply the juice on areas you wish to lighten. For oily skin you may try the following natural remedies. Egg Whites: High in vitamin A, egg whites can effectively dry out skin blemishes as well as tone and tighten up oily skin. Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is a good source of citric acid that works like an astringent. It also has antiseptic properties that can lighten skin discolorations and restore the skin's pH balance. Yogurt: Yogurt contains lactic acid that helps gently exfoliate the skin and absorbs excess oil from the face. Tomatoes: Tomatoes are great for oily skin due to their cooling, clarifying and astringent properties. The high vitamin C content in tomatoes is very helpful for acne-prone skin. Plus, the natural oil-absorbing acids in tomatoes help get rid of excess oil. Its best to consult your dermatologist to find out which of these options is best for your skin type.

*To control the oily secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive oily secretion on face So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging. Do long breathing pranayams daily for 10 minutes. • Drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. Apply rose water on your face daily for 5 minutes. * * Take proper sleep of 6 to 7 hrs daily. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. *You can apply cucumber juice or mixed with curd for 5 minutes and rinse with water. * you can rub a piece of cucumber daily on your face for 5 minutes.

If the size is increasing you have to consult consult a surgeon and evaluate. Some times need to takeba biopsy and decide on treatment. Lipomas are non cancerous growth and no need to worry. To get rid of your worry you can do as I advised.

Wrinkle Prevention - Know How Your Doctor Can Help!

Wrinkle Prevention - Know How Your Doctor Can Help!

Wrinkle prevention injections are used to prevent wrinkles and give a more naturally young look. Injecting wrinkle fillers will bring about a more youthful look and that too for a fraction of the time and effort of what a traditional facelift costs.

What is it?

Injectable wrinkle fillers fill the line, area or crease with a substance. This makes the trouble spots to disappear almost entirely. Wrinkle injections are also used for lifting chin, jawlines, filling out thin lips and plumping. They can be used for a wide variety of treatments and are very effective in treating such problems. The treatment can last from four months to upto one year.

Procedure and details

  • Toxins are injected into the target area of the skin with the help of a syringe.
  • The action of the muscle is temporarily reduced by the toxin by blocking the motor nerves ability to release acetylcholine.
  • A new batch of nerve proteins is built in three to four months and by six months the nerves return to full capacity.
  • This is when the results of the treatment wear off. But with constant treatment longer results can be achieved because the nerve proteins become slower at rebuilding themselves.
  • After the treatment there can be slight redness in the areas of the skin where the treatment was done but there is nothing to be concerned about as that is normal and the redness subsides after 15 minutes.
  • The entire procedure of injecting the toxin into the skin takes about 10-15 minutes.
  • It is a very quick and reliable procedure.
  • A common misconception with wrinkle injections are that it will improve the condition of the skin. But that is not the case.
  • Wrinkle injections reduces lines and wrinkles but are not skin treatments.

Cost of the treatment

  • The cost of a single session of treatment varies as the number of units of medication to be used a person varies from person to person.
  • Usually a single unit costs around 1000-1500. The cost of consultation also hikes up the price.
  • Usually for a treatment around the forehead area the cost comes around 3000 - 5000 depending upon the patient's condition.

Benefits of the treatment

  • Wrinkle prevention injections are quicker and cheaper and are also long lasting than other forms of treatments available for preventing wrinkles.
  • A single session of wrinkle preventing injections last for at least 4 months.
  • The risk factor from side effects is also very minimum.
  • Wrinkle prevention injections are not only cheaper but also less time consuming and more effective.

Hi, at your age dullness can be related to many different reasons, as I have limited information about your condition, I can best suggest to eat more green leafy vegetables, fibrous fruits, drink milk twice daily, do some exercise, have proper rest in night, if you have habit of masturbation (you must avoid it), wash you face with herbal moisturising face wash. If you have more questions you can ask.

Laser is not used for rosacea treatment. Rosacea has to be treated mostly like acne. Along with this sunscreen is very important. Please call me or send photos using online consult option for proper examination diagnosis and treatment advice.
