What Is Salicylic Acid?

Friday, October 31st, 2014

Salicylic Acid (SA) is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) derived from willow tree bark, used to help clear and prevent acne pimples and blemishes. SA is in a class of medications called keratolytic agents, which are exfoliating ingredients. It actually penetrates into pores, dissolves dead skin build-up and sheds the top layer of skin and prevents pores from becoming trapped.

SA also treats acne by reducing swelling and redness and is effective at clearing mild acne without drying the skin. However, it has no effect on Propioni bacteria found in acne.

You can expect to see full results within a few weeks of using topical SA to treat acne or certain other skin conditions, Your condition may worsen during the first few days as the cleanser begins to open and cleanse the pores. It should be applied even after the acne has cleared to continue its exfoliating and cleansing benefits.

To prevent dryness or irritation, apply less often at first, and then gradually increase the application process after your skin has adjusted to treatment. Carefully follow the directions on the package label as it will tell you how to prepare your skin before you apply the cleanser.

Since salicylic acid can be slightly drying to the surface of the skin, it is advised not to use it with topical acne prescriptions, aggressive cleansers or astringents. For the best results, a balanced acne regimen with moisturizing and soothing products is recommended. Pregnant and nursing women should check with their physician about using salicylic acid since some advise against it.

Hair Regrowth That Works

Hair Regrowth That Works

There are many forms of hair loss with treatments galore that claim to restore a full head of hair and we should not underestimate the stigma associated with hair loss. The good news is that as long as you have some hair, or if dealing with radiation and cancer, once your treatments end, regrowth can occur.

Most programs today are expensive and range from topical products, specialized lasers that stimulate the scalp to oral prescription medication. Our policy has always been to offer high quality and high efficacy at moderate pricing.

Within the first two weeks you will begin to have a much cleaner scalp from the build-up of waxes [created by shampoos and other hair care products] and  there will be a significant drop-off of hair fallout. Over the next three to six month you will see real hairs, not just peach fuzz, as your hair will grow in fuller and thicker.

For our cancer patients, due to skin sensitivity which often accompanies chemotherapy, we recommend using these products two weeks following your last round of chemotherapy. Our products will help your hair come back faster and in the healthiest condition possible, though it will often return in a different color due to the damage to the hair cells by the chemo.

Our Professional Hair Growth System Kit is simple to use. We have 4 essential products that need to be used daily and will require 4 – 6 minutes during and following your bath or shower.

Five Steps of a Breast Self-Exam

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Step 1

Begin by looking at your breasts in the mirror with your  shoulders straight and your arms on your hips.  Here’s  what you  should look for:

*Breasts that are their usual size, shape, and color
*Breasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortion  or swelling.

If you see any of the following changes,    bring them to your doctor’s attention:

* Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin
* A nipple that has changed position or an inverted nipple  (pushed inward instead of sticking out)
* Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling

Step 2

Now, raise your arms and look for the same changes.

Step 3

While you’re at the mirror, look for any signs of fluid coming out of one or both nipples (this could be a watery, milky,  yellow fluid or blood).

Step 4

Next, feel your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast. Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together. Use a circular motion, about the size of a quarter.

Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side – from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage. Follow a pattern to be sure that you cover the whole breast. You can begin at the nipple, moving in larger and larger circles until you reach the outer edge of the breast. You can also move your fingers up and down vertically, in rows, as if you were mowing a lawn. This up-and-down approach seems to work best for most women. Be sure to feel all the tissue from the front to the back of your breasts: for the skin and tissue just beneath, use light pressure; use medium pressure for tissue in the middle of your breasts; use firm pressure for the deep tissue in the back. When you’ve reached the deep tissue, you should be able to feel down to your rib cage.
