Posted on
News

Your immune system is designed to fight bacteria and disease. But when you have an autoimmune disorder, your immune system mistakenly attacks your healthy cells, making you sick.

These attacks can occur in various areas of the body: Common autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, Type I diabetes, lupus, celiac disease and multiple sclerosis. While all these disorders have an impact on different organs or tissues throughout the body, some autoimmune disorders affect your skin directly. For instance, skin conditions such as scleroderma, psoriasis, dermatomyositis and epidermolysis bullosa are all autoimmune disorders.

Like many medical conditions, treating autoimmune skin conditions sometimes requires trial …

Everyone loses 50 to 100 hairs per day—but some of us are losing way more than that. While hair loss is somewhat expected for men as they grow older, it’s also quite common in women, according to the American Academy for Dermatology. And the causes are varied: Genetics, aging, hormones, stressful events, nutrition and certain medications or diseases can contribute to hair loss.

While some people are comfortable with baldness, most people prefer to keep some hair on their heads. But the good news is that just because you experience hair loss doesn’t mean anybody has to know about it. …

Sometimes, red or itchy skin can be caused by the wrong lotion, the weather or a minor allergy. But other times, a skin rash can be the result of a potentially serious or chronic condition.

For instance, psoriasis is a fairly common autoimmune disease that shows itself by causing raised, red patches to appear on the skin. These patches, which are usually scaly and itchy, often show up on elbows, knees or the scalp, but they can appear anywhere on the skin. While some forms of psoriasis can be just moderately uncomfortable, others can be debilitating and even fatal.

Want Line-Free, Younger Looking Lips? No Problem

News

Your lips are one of the most defining features of your face, outlining your smile, communicating your expressions, and puckering up to kiss your loved ones. But as we grow older, our looks change—even our lips. Over time, most people’s lips naturally tighten, flatten and become thinner, and many develop distinctive “lip lines.”

But now there’s an easy solution for achieving fuller, smoother, younger-looking lips without doing anything drastic. Volbella, a new product from Allergan (the makers of Botox, Kybella and Latisse), is a dermal filler for lip lines and lips that provides a soft, subtle augmentation.

The Miracle of Microneedling

Posted on
News

When Kim Kardashian made news with her “vampire facial,” the procedure actually wasn’t new. Microneedling therapy, also known as skin needling, has been around for many years but is currently enjoying a renaissance. And although microneedling devices are now available for home use, trying to undertake the procedure on your own carries significant risk.

Why use microneedling?
