Treating Your Skin Problems with Laser – Science Articles

When the buzz on lasers as an anti-aging tool first started in the early 1990s, people didn’t know what to make of it. To most people, lasers were symbols of the kind of high-tech wizardry associated with the characters in Star Wars. Faster than the speed of light, however, lasers went from being a novel idea of the future to a much-improved alternative to the cosmetic procedures that already existed.

How to Treat Wrinkles – Science Articles – Health

Ah, wrinkles. Wrinkles seem to be the symbol for aging, and they are the focus of nearly every slick advertisement for skin care flashing across your television screen. A preoccupation with all types of lines and wrinkles is likely to start in a woman’s late twenties to early thirties, when she sees the first indica­tion that she’s no longer a teenager. In younger women, the presence of wrinkles is usually linked to a premature degener­ation of collagen and elastin from sun damage. In time, how­ever, everyone, including people who were diligent about sun protection, will end up with some wrinkles.

The Benefits from Botox Treatment – Health Article

It’s been proved that Botox helps with migraine headaches, a debilitating condition. The reason isn’t exactly clear, but I sus­pect that the muscle-relaxing effect of Botox has something to do with it. Another theory is that Botox has a positive effect on the pain transmitters in the face. A few years ago I treated a patient who I thought was exaggerating when she said her headache had disappeared immediately after she was injected with Botox. Today, however, I’m a believer in this application. Recently another patient told me that her crippling headaches had kept her home from work for two weeks and that to her, Botox was truly heaven-sent. Even one of the nurses in my Miami office uses Botox for this purpose; her headaches are so severe that she often has to turn off the lights in her office and rest her head. For many, the instant relief that Botox delivers in just a shot or two—with relief lasting as long as four months— is far more desirable than taking an endless stream of pain med­ication. Of course, no one complains about the side benefits!
