Deciding to undergo skin laser resurfacing is not a decision that is quite as serious as plastic surgery, but it’s riskier and more dramatic than something like a dermal filler, or an intense facial. Laser resurfacing can have an amazing effect on wrinkled, uneven, or scarred skin, but it does come at the cost of having a laser ablate (burn) the skin on your face. For this reason, understandably, some people are very nervous to undergo the procedure, and they’re also nervous about the side effects. Here are three things that are probably going to scare you, but which you ultimately won’t need to worry about.
Redness and Swelling
Face laser resurfacing, while ultimately resulting in smoother, more evenly toned skin, is at first somewhat traumatic for your skin cells. You can
Did you know that the global packaging industry generates an estimated 500 billion U.S. dollars annually? Whether you are talking about the packaging that takes place for medical equipment sales, or the more run of the mill, specialty healthcare packaging, these products are incredibly important to the health and safety of the population of the United States. If you need to invest in medical packaging designs for medical equipment sales, or you are just interested in the top medical equipment companies, here are a few important facts you need to know.

Do you have a family member who might benefit from residing in assisted living communities? Perhaps you are considering independent retirement communities for yourself. In either case, it is critical to take the retirement homes search very seriously and consider all of your options carefully.
PBS reports that there are about 17,000 nursing homes in America, with approximately 1.6 million people living there. It is thought that among these residents, 47% of them suffer from dementia, which is in part why senior living facilities are beneficial to have in place.
But what are some of the specific pluses to living in an assisted living facilit
It is not always easy to keep your skin clear and smooth. There is always the chance that skin diseases, such as psoriasis or acne can affect you, or other skin inflammations such as eczema. All three of these conditions can be painful, and many people feel embarrassed to be seen in public with red, scaly, pimpled skin.
Almost a quarter of children suffer from eczema globally, and about 65% of people who suffer from it are diagnosed before they are one years old, according to physicians. It is characterized by itchy, inflamed, chronically red skin that flares up on a regular basis. Similary, psoriasis causes itchy skin that can produce red, flaky patches all over the body. Unlike eczema, psoriasis is typically found on the outer part of joints, such as elbows and knees, but it can also develop on the h
Chronic back pain can affect an estimated 26 million people between 20 and 64 across the United States. In addition, nearly 50 percent of Americans report lower back pain has been an issue. Even if only a small percentage of those with chronic back pain missed work as a result of their pain, productivity losses could hit significant levels. Whether you have a slipped disc, sciatic nerve pain, or other back issues, your discomfort does not have to insurmountable. With some preliminary research you can find back pain relief to help you.

You would notice if you went for a doctors visit, and the doctor wasn’t a “Dr.” at all, but just a “Mr.” or a “Ms.” What would you do if you went to the eye clinic and found that you were being treated not by Dr. Smith, but by Mrs. Smith? Would it bother you? Not all of the specialists at an eye care clinic are actually doctors, not if they are optometrists, as opposed to ophthalmologists. Here are the key differences between the two, and why, for most cases, your doctor doesn’t actually need to be a “Dr.”
Ophthalmologists receive more training than most optometrists will have. They must complete college, and eight years of medical training in addition to that in order to obtain the licensing required for practicing surgery, and medicine. They can certainly perform ey
