Tighten Turkey Neck With This Facial Yoga Exercise

  This morning, a couple of the women in my office asked me what they could do about their “turkey necks.” These women take great care of their skin. They look much younger than their actual age. But they hate that the skin on their necks is beginning to sag and get loose, no matter how many products they try. I gave them some advice and got back to work at my desk. A few minutes later, one of the men on my staff, F.C, came into my office. He hesitated for a minute. Then, in a very low voice, he said: “Dr. Sears, I heard you telling the women how they could make the skin on their necks look better. Can you tell me, too?” Women aren’t the only ones who care about their appearance. Men want to look younger, too. And a sagging, jowly neck will give away your...

How Does PRP Therapy Work

We’ve known for years that platelets are the part of your blood that’s responsible for clotting. But we’re only beginning to learn about their powerful rejuvenating power and their potential to heal. Platelets are your body’s “first responders.” They initiate a cascade of healing that’s 10 times more powerful than any drug available today. In fact, it’ll be centuries before Big Pharma will be able to come up with a drug that can come close to doing what platelets can do. Platelets work in two ways. First, they contain hundreds of growth factors. These proteins are critical for wound healing. And they regenerate injured or aging tissues and organs.1 Platelets also attract stem cells to damaged or aging tissue. Once they get there, the st...

Scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and other institutions discovered the mutations in four unrelated families with severe atopic dermatitis and studied the resulting cell-signaling defects that contribute to allergic disease. Their findings also suggest that some of these defects potentially could be corrected by supplementation with the amino acid glutamine. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Enzymes May Be Able To Give You A Real Tan Without The Damage

Sun worshippers might someday be able to get a tan without exposing their skin to the harmful ultraviolet radiation that’s responsible for skin cancers, a new study suggests. The goal of the research is to prevent skin cancers by darkening the pigmentation of people’s skin, senior author Dr. David Fisher told Reuters Health. “Very light skin and a very poor ability to tan correlates with a very high probability of developing cancer,” said Fisher, who is chief of the dermatology service at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Darker skin may block harmful UV radiation, Fisher said, so it’s possible that darkening the skin’s pigmentation might help neutralize the risk associated with genes for light-colored hair and fair skin. A decade ago, Fisher&rsq...

Why Do I Sweat So Much?

For SELF, by Amy Marturana.   I will never be a woman who can spend a full hour working out hard in the morning, and then after, spritz some dry shampoo on her hair and saunter off to the office looking presentable. The problem isn’t my hair — it’s straight and easy to manage, which I am grateful for. It’s the sweat. After any workout, it looks like I just dunked my head under a shower. Why do I sweat so much? I ask myself this question on a near-daily basis. Every time I’m working out with other people, I notice that they do not suffer from the same level of sweatiness as I do. It’s not just head sweat — arm, back, butt, and chest sweat show up to the party, too. I’ve written about excessive sweating before, a medical condition called ...

Exactly What To Do This Summer To Have Gorgeous Skin Forever

Soaking up some rays is an ideal way to spend a summer day. But if you’re going for beautiful skin in the long run, managing sun exposure is critical.  “The number one thing that causes [skin] problems is the sun,”Janellen Smith, dermatology professor at the University of California-Irvine School of Medicine, told HuffPost. “So if you can protect yourself from the sun, that is a good thing for longevity of your skin.” Too much sun exposure over time can lead to a higher risk of skin cancer and premature signs of aging like wrinkles. Luckily, there are a few ways to protect your body (and they don’t involve shielding yourself from the outdoors). Check out Smith’s tips below on how to enjoy the sunshine but still keep your skin healthy for ...

Model With Rare Genetic Disorder Is A Brilliant Example Of Inclusion

This world is a diverse one, so it’s refreshing when the fashion industry reflects that reality. And Seattle-based model Melanie Gaydos is hoping to add to that effort. Gaydos, 28, was born with ectodermal dysplasia, a genetic disorder that can interfere with the proper growth of the hair, nails, teeth, skin and glands. Her involvement in the fashion community is helping people like her to see a place for them in the highly stylized world of modeling. A post shared by Melanie Gaydos (@melaniegaydos) on May 17, 2017 at 5:12pm PDT Fewer than 200,000 people in the United States experience the rare condition, according to the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias. And almost every individual will experience the disorder differently. More than 180 types of ect...

When It's Not A Sunburn But A Sun Allergy

As it gets warmer and people start spending more time outside, I have more and more patients coming into my office and complaining of a “sun allergy.” A sun allergy is really a layman’s term, which refers to a number of conditions when a rash occurs on skin that has been exposed to the sun. These are also referred to as photosensitive disorders or photodermatoses, and can be broadly categorized into the following medical terms: idiopathic photodermatoses, exogenous photodermatoses, photoexacerbated dermatoses, genetic photodermatoses, and metabolic photodermatoses. Sounds complicated, right?  A sun allergy refers to a number of conditions when a rash occurs on skin that has been exposed to the sun. Let?s break it down: If, after spending a few hours in...

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Getting Botox In Your Groin

Most of us are familiar with botulinum toxin injections (commonly known by their brand names as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) to erase facial wrinkles.  But Botox can also help people who suffer from excessive sweating, which is known as hyperhidrosis. In order to put a halt to sweating, it’s become increasingly more common to receive Botox injections in the armpits. And now, people are getting injections in their groin, as well.  HuffPost recently spoke with Dr. John H.Tu, M.D. from the University of Rochester Department of Dermatology and dermatologist for Dermatology Associates of Rochester. He filled us in on all the details. To stop sweating, Botox is injected into a patient’s groin crease.  “You have this sort of trough that runs from your hip...

Is It A Poison Ivy Rash? How To Tell ? And How To Treat It

By Jessica Migala You’ve probably feared a run-in with poison ivy since you were a kid. Even brushing up against the pointy leaves is risky, says Temitayo A. Ogunleye, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The climbing plant contains an irritating resin, called urushiol, that can transfer to your skin via touch, she explains. You might also be exposed to the oily liquid by a pet who picks up the resin on his fur and then passes it along to you. You can even inhale urushiol if, say, you mow over a large patch of poison ivy in your yard, Dr. Ogunleye adds. That can cause a severe allergic reaction. But if only your skin has come into contact with the oil, you’ll likely develop an itchy, red, bli...
