On the hands, neck or face, brown spots due to sun exposure are deposits of pigment (melanin) in the excessive thickness of the skin. These dark spots can be removed or mitigated with lasers and flash lamps.
Two types of laser against actinic or sun spots
Two types of laser treat pigmented brown spots (tell “actinic” or solar) by abrasion or by photo-mechanical effect.
They remove the surface layer of the skin containing the pigments responsible for the brown color. A new unblemished skin then re-form in its place in 5-6 days. Read the rest of this entry »
Scabies is a disease caused by a parasite invisible to the naked eye that feeds the superficial layer of the skin. The female penetrates the skin and lays her eggs. The presence of the latter produces inflammatory effect similar to an allergic reaction, which explains the intense itching that accompanies the infection. In the absence of treatment, a female can procreate for five weeks! Read the rest of this entry »

So-called varicose veins or varicose veins are enlarged veins in the leg, which are usually located just below the surface. The frequently occurring disease is also called varicose veins.
Causes of varicose veins (varices)
Usually an inherited weakness of the connective tissue behind the veins changes. In the veins are valves that allow a return of blood toward the heart. At the closing of the valve defect, it comes to Blutaufstau since the first blood of the deep veins of the knee or groin flows, but in the surface veins back sags down. Partly as a result of thrombosis often develop varicose veins. Other causes are rare.
Circumstances such as obesity or pregnancy increase the risk of varicose veins. Read the rest of this entry »
Discovered a gene that could solve baldness
Hair loss might be reversible, that is, those hairs that are lost could come back to regenerate. There have been experiments that created new hair cells in mouse skin. It was thought to regenerate hair follicles, once atrophied, no one could re-stimulate and to regrow. Well, the magazine Nature, and through research at the University of Pennsylvania, say they can achieve with a gene. The head comes with 100,000 follicles from which hair grows each.
