Neglected Hands of Time

Anti-Aging Techniques for the Hands

The other day, one of my patients said to me, “Now that you have erased the wrinkles on my face, what are you going to do about these hands. They look as though they should belong to someone else, the person who used to have my face.”

Erasing Unwanted Hair

I have hair that must be the best hair in the world, because nothing gets rid of it for more than a short time. I probably have tried every depilatory cream made... Most all have a foul smell and leave me with a painful rash that lasts for days. By the time the rash goes away, the hair is returning. Shaving gives me razor burns, irritates my skin and seems to make the hair grow back thicker and faster than ever. Plucking, waxing and electrolysis were, I’m sure, designed as some sort of medieval way to torture people. For me they have been expensive and painful.

The Many Faces of Skin Cancer

Know Your ABCD's!

I have had a patch of dry skin on my cheek for a long time. Recently it has begun to get red and itch. Just about the time I think I should have it checked, it gets better and goes away. I was worried about it being a skin cancer, but a friend told me that I shouldn’t worry because if it were a skin cancer it wouldn’t go away, it would just keep getting bigger. What do you think?
