What Is Lipoma Removal?

Posted By

A lipoma is located just underneath one’s skin and is a result of overgrown fat cells formed into a small lump. It is extremely important to note that lipomas are not cancerous, nor do they become cancerous. In fact, they are the most popular type of non-cancerous tissue growth that can be found on the body. Lipomas may be discovered almost anywhere on the body. Most frequently, they are found on the neck, thighs, arms, armpits, or upper body. It is possible to have more than one lipoma at a time. While both men and women can develop lipomas, a single lipoma is more common for women while multiple lipomas are more common for men. Generally, a lipoma does not cause pain and they stay…

How Latisse Can Help You Revive Over-Plucked Eyebrows

Posted By

For many women, plucking eyebrows is a regular occurrence, and over the years, a hair will be removed from its follicle many times. Eventually, the trauma will cause permanent hair loss, meaning it will not regrow, and if enough hairs go missing, an over-plucked eyebrow will seem too sparse. Luckily, Latisse can help the remaining hairs make up for the thinness. Extending the growth period You may know of eyelash extensions, but have you heard of eyebrow extensions? There’s a procedure that has an adhesive which allows brow hairs to stay on for 5 to 14 days. Instead of adding more hairs, another strategy would be to change the hair cycle so that the existing hairs stick around longer.

What Is A Cyst And Why Does It Require A Treatment?

Posted By

There are different types of cysts, but they often occur under and close to the surface of the skin. It’s an abnormal growth of tissue that forms a membrane, sectioning it off from regular cells and creating a pocket that can be filled with air, fluids, or other material, either foreign or originating from inside the body. For example, a cyst can form around a hair follicle, becoming folliculitis, or it can even develop around the post of an earing. Many cysts are not visible from the surface, but it can be easily detected by applying pressure to the body, and if you find one, it feels like a pea under the skin. An abscess is much firmer since it’s filled with pus, and the general area will be more inflamed. Facts about cysts The…

What To Know About Skin Tags That Grow During Pregnancy

Posted By

There’s something about pregnancy that heightens the sense of self-awareness, and even slight changes can become something to focus on. Skin tags are a common occurrence during pregnancy and may develop even if you haven’t had skin tags before. Luckily we can tell you all about what happens and what to do about them. Identifying skin tags Skin tags are small flaps of skin that are 2 to 50 mm in size, and they’re usually discoloured although they shouldn’t be confused with moles that protrude from the skin, which are flatter and darker. They are commonly located in areas of the skin that form creases, such as the neck, armpit, groin, breasts, eyelids, and bottom. It’s not fully understood why skin tags appear, but there are certain groups who are more prone to developing them:…

Why Lipomas Need To Be Removed

Posted By

A lipoma is a lump that’s technically a tumor, but it’s benign (non-cancerous), and made of fat cells. Anyone can develop a lipoma, and it affects both genders similarly, although adults are at a greater risk of having lipomas than children. Lipomas can be small, within the range of 2 to 5 cm, although giant lipomas can develop to be several inches long. The doctor’s diagnosis A lipoma appears as a protruding lump, and doctors can identify them by appearance correctly most of the time, although they may have reasons to want to double check their diagnosis. Based on your demographic and personal history, the location of the lipoma may be cause for concern because some cancerous tumors look similar to lipomas. A removal of the lipoma will allow the doctor to examine the structure…
