Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - Everyone knows that UVB rays from the sun makes your skin wrinkle, but a Japanese study found that mice placed in an oxygen chamber developed less wrinkles than those that didn't get oxygen treatments when being exposed to UVB radiation. The researchers suggest that the oxygen might help in preventing wrinkles that occur from the sun's UVB rays.

Sun can cause skin to become damaged and wrinkled. In the process of the damage, skin can become leathery as the outer layer of the skin becomes thickened. UVB radiation causes the skin to have new blood vessels to spider off from vessels that already exist. This process of new blood vessel formation is called cutaneous angiogenesis and there are proteins that attach to certain DNA sequences. They include hypoxia inducible factor (HIF-1) and its subunit HIF-1 α and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

[Best Syndication News] One of the ways that US government will make money to pay for health care in the new healthcare Reform Law is by collecting money for an additional tax for using indoor tanning booths or services. The American Academy of Dermatology President, William D. James, MD, FAAD hopes that it will keep young people from going to get an indoor tan because they are dangerous and should be avoided.

James said that the dangers of developing potentially deadly Melanoma skin cancer is increasing faster among young women than men in the United States and are being seen at younger ages. Dermatologists believe this is because of the use of tanning beds. If a person used tanning beds before the age of 35, they increase their chances for developing melanoma skin cancer by 75 percent. He added that melanoma has become that most common form of cancer for young adults ages 25-29 years old. In those ages 15 – 29 years of age it is the second most common form of cancer.

Breast Augmentation: Get Information On When Implants Should Be Replaced

Wed, 16 Dec 2009 20:32:14 +0000

Best Syndication News

If you are seriously considering getting breast augmentation, you might have questions about life after the operation. Many people wonder if implants require a lot of upkeep, including eventually needing to be replaced. The answer often depends on the kind you get, who performs the surgery, and your lifestyle. Learning a little about long-term care is advised, whether you already have them or foresee them in your future.

Not every patient eventually needs her implants replaced after breast augmentation. However, the solution inside them could break down over time, making it a wise decision to get them redone. In most cases, the saline kinds need to be replaced less often than silicone. The only reason to have them redone is if the saline is thought to be leaking out, which can usually be detected if the breasts seem to be getting smaller over time.

If you’re losing your hair day by day, there’s no time like the present to do something about it. Hair replacement cosmetic surgery can help you get your hair back, and stop that ever-growing bald spot from taking over!

Like all types of cosmetic surgery, this replacement has its ups and downs. It’s also not for everybody. How do you know if you’re a candidate? Look at what you’ve got first.

Hair replacement cosmetic surgery works by taking your existing tresses and planting it where it’s needed. This means taking the tress from the sides and back of your head, and putting it up front or on top. This part is “bald resistant,” meaning it’s immune to the hormones that cause baldness. This is why almost all bald men still have the ring around the sides and back.

Your doctor will need to have a look at your scalp. The sooner you get the ball rolling, the better your chances of saving your hair. Let’s look at how the transplant procedure works.

Liposuction: Looking For An Alternative? Endermologie Might Be The Answer

Liposuction is a hugely popular procedure and with good reason. Each body stores fat in a unique way, which means that all of the diet and exercise in the world won’t necessarily help you shed those chunky thighs or love handles. It can target stubborn lumps and fatty deposits, smoothing and sculpting you the ideal body that you’ve always wanted.

However, it isn’t a perfect method. It involves incisions, going under anesthesia, and spending one or two weeks at home recovering from the ordeal. There are also risks and complications when undergoing liposuction, including bleeding, infection, and unsightly lumps and divots in the skin.

Even cellulite cannot be addressed by this procedure. While it may be perfect for some patients, others might find the risks, money, and time investment involved worth the price and efforts. New technology has led to the development of non-invasive procedures that can produce similar effects to a surgical procedure such as liposuction.
