What Should You Know About Vaser Liposuction?

Most people think that all liposuction techniques are the same but this is definitely incorrect. In fact, there are various liposuction forms that can now be used by people looking to get rid of large volumes of unwanted fat. Vaser Liposuction is formally known as VASER LipoSelection. It is a liposuction that utilizes ultrasonic energy to assist surgeons as they remove body fat in a selective manner.

According to the best Vaser liposuction in San Diego, ultrasonic liposuction is much older than what many believe. It was initially used in the early nineties but plastic surgeons decided not to use it after some time because of some increased complications and complications. They appeared as a lot of ultrasonic energy was utilized. Vaser is practically the third generation ultrasound option that was created so that most of the problems are removed. This is possible through the use of low ultrasound levels.

In Vaser liposuction ultrasonic energy is pulsating so fat cells are gently broken without causing too much collateral damage. Many think that Vaser is a laser but it is not. Ultrasonic energy is basically transformed right into vibration energy that is then transmitted directly to fat cells through the use of small probes. The probes are 2 or 3 mm. Fat cells will be shaken apart. Then they are mixed with fluid added by surgeons on operation onset. Small cannulas can after be utilized to remove the fat and water mixture.

The question that most people ask is whether Vaser is simply a marketing gimmick or something that is highly useful for patients. What many do not understand is that it is very important to choose the services of a very good surgeon. The device itself is not the real breakthrough technology. If you choose surgeons that have talent, skills, wisdom and a lot of experience with using Vaser, the procedure is going to be successful. The aesthetic surgeon needs to take into account the individual needs of the patient and then make suitable choices. In various situations, the use of Vaser liposuction is actually a really good idea.

When talking to surgeons that have a lot of experience with different liposuction techniques, Vaser is something that stands out as a good solution. Surgeons are happy with the results that are gained in most anatomical areas. This does include inner thighs, outer thighs, posterior trunk, face, neck, arms and the abdomen.

If we are to compare Vaser liposuctions with other techniques, especially with standard liposuction, the huge advantage is that skin tightening and skin contraction are increased. Also, patients do have to deal with lower downtime and pain after the operation. Cannulas and probes are much smaller so there is smoother body contour and skin surface that become reality.

On the whole, Vaser liposuctions are something that can be considered in various different situations. This is a procedure that does have clear advantages over other liposuction techniques but it is still important to find a surgeon that is highly experienced and take into account the personal needs of patients.

Some Facts about Teeth Whitening

ID-10055131White and glistening teeth are desired by every men and women. Teeth whitening can be also sometimes called (although incorrectly) bleaching of teeth and it is part of cosmetic dentistry, which has become very popular, especially among young generation. You can get teeth whitening solutions at your nearest drug stores (to be used by yourself) or you can get the entire procedure done at your dentist’s clinic.

Many people have used teeth whitening but very few of the general population as well as the users of teeth whitening have adequate knowledge about teeth whitening. Due to lack of adequate knowledge about teeth whitening the misinformation is very much present among people (users as well as non users of teeth whitening). The most common misinformation people have is about the duration a single use of whitening solution or procedure at your dentist’s clinic can give. The fact is you need to use teeth whitening regularly to get a long lasting of permanent white and glistening teeth.

According to USFDA the term “bleaching” of teeth is whitening teeth beyond their natural white color and whitening is to restore natural white color of teeth if they are stained or discolored. But practically almost all the whitening solutions contain bleaching chemicals like hydrogen peroxide. Strictly speaking these whitening solutions containing beaching chemical should be called bleach (according to the USFDA definition), but they are called whitening solutions (most likely, whitening sound better than bleach).

Different individuals use whitening solutions for different purpose. Some use teeth whitening to remove stains and some individuals use teeth whitening to restore natural color and add some glaze in teeth.

Treatment of Folliculitis

Folliculitis is infection and inflammation of hair follicles. Hair follicles are present all over the body except palms and soles. So practically Folliculitis can occur anywhere in the body except palms and soles. Hair follicles are portals of large number of bacteria.

Causative organisms of Folliculitis:

The commonest organism of Folliculitis is Staphylococcus aureus and it usually causes localized folliculitis. Other causative organisms are Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Propionibacterium acnes (causative organism of acne or pimples), Schistosoma species etc.

Diffuse folliculitis can occur in two settings, “hot-tub” folliculitis and “swimmer’s itch”. Hot-tub folliculitis occurs when waters is insufficiently chlorinated and maintained at temperatures of 37–40°C and the infection is generally self limiting (although bacteremia and shock may occur rarely). The causative agent in hot-tub folliculitis is Pseudomonas aeruginosa.Swimmer’s itch occurs when a skin surface is exposed to water infested with freshwater avian schistosomes (Schistosoma species). Free-swimming schistosomes can readily penetrate human hair follicles but quickly die and elicit a brisk allergic reaction which cause intense itching and erythema.

Sebaceous glands empty into hair follicles and ducts and if they are blocked they form sebaceous cysts, which may resemble staphylococcal abscesses. Chronic folliculitis is uncommon except in acne vulgaris (a form of folliculitis), which is generally caused by normal flora Propionibacterium acnes.

Treatment of folliculitis:

If the organisms are sensitive to beta-lactum antibiotics, they should be used first. Examples of beta-lactum antibiotics are penicillins (older and newer synthetic penicillin like amoxycillin), cephalosporins (like Cefazolin) etc. If the organisms are not sensitive to beta-lactum antibiotics, vancomycin (1 gm intravenously every 12 hourly) or linezolid (600 mg intravenously every 12 hourly) should be used. Sometimes tetracycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole can also be used.
