Skin pigmentation


Hyperpigmentation is a disorder that affects the colour of your skin. It can happen on any part of the body, including the face.

Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin, which is made by special cells in the skin. When these cells get damaged or become unhealthy, it affects the production of melanin. If your body produces too much melanin, it creates dark patches on the skin. Addison’s disease and exposure to the sun are some of the reasons for darker skin. They appear mainly on body parts that are frequently exposed, such as the face, hands and arms.

When the melanin is under produced, it creates lighter patches on your skin. Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells (melanocytes) that can cause light skin.

Skin pigmentation can also occur  during pregnancy or during menopause due to hormonal changes.  Having medicines or pills, applying creams and other cosmetics that are not suitable for our skin type can also cause this disorder.

Some treatments and home remedies are possible. Skin lightening cream  work by slowing down melanin production and removing existing melanin from the skin. You can also try a topical treatment that contains Retin-A or alpha-hydroxy acids. Laser treatment or PRP can also be tried.

Wash a potato and cut it into half. Rub the potato onto the affected areas of your face in a circular motion. Repeat this twice daily.  Take a bowl and mix one tablespoon of lemon juice with one tablespoon of turmeric powder. Apply this mixture on the affected areas and leave for 15-20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water.  Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with two tablespoons of water. Apply this mixture on the patches. Repeat this twice daily. You can squeeze out the red onion juice and apply it to the affected areas of your skin.

How to decide on the size of the breast implant

Planning a breast augmentation procedure?. How do you decide on the size of the implant that would be suitable for  you?  And this has to be planned, as biggest is not always the best.
 Breast implants are measured in volume, cubic centimeters (cc’s), So asking for a size C or D may not mean much, as these sizes may vary. So you need to decide on a cubic centimeter size.
Choice of a suitable breast implant is made by a joint consultation and decision between the surgeon and the patient. You need to tell the surgeon your expectations and desires from the surgery. Your surgeon will examine and measure your chest, checking the width, symmetry and laxity of the skin. You should have enough skin and tissue to comfortably cover the breast implant. Cleavage is dependent both on the size of the breast and the space between them.
It is important to listen to your surgeon’s advice. Even though your are paying for and having the surgery, it is your surgeon who has to perform the surgery and he knows what is feasible. And he really does want to give you the best result possible.
So find a qualified and experienced surgeon. At the consultation, express yourself well, ask questions and be satisfied with the plan and then trust your surgeon.
