Treatments for your back

More and more dresses are backless and unless your back is naturally flawless, what can we do to help improve the skin on our back?

Fortunately, the skin on our back is normally quite strong, definitely a lot more than the skin on our face.

The most common issues on our backs are:

  • Sun Damage
  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Excess Epidermis Growth

Apart from using the proper skin care products, Microdermabrasion for the back is gaining popularity among men and women seeking smoother looking backs. It is totally safe and results in immediate improvement. Besides, it feels like someone is giving you a great back scratch.

If you want more than just smoother skin, but also softer and hydrated, the Hydra Facial (Microdermabrasion plus treatment) might be for you. It is appropriate for all skin types, including the skin on your back.

In the case of acne, it is important that the skin receive proper care first, before trying Microdermabrasion. After exercise, do not allow perspiration to linger on your skin, as this can also promote skin breakout.

When experiencing excess epidermis growth such as fibromers or skin tags, a quick Lam Probe treatment will take care of this condition safely and quickly. Allow one week for it to peel off completely.

When exposing your back to the elements, make sure you have the proper sun protection on all the time.

So often, when we experience painful cracks in our fingers or heels, the right help is not always at hand. Here are a few products worth knowing and to have, if you are dealing with occasional dry, cracked skin.

Ear Candling

Ear cndling is gaining popularity in this country. Is it safe and who should look into having ear candling done?

Ear candling is simply an ancient remedy dating from over 2000 years ago. Many people are rediscovering Ear Candling as a way to cleanse the ear canal and sinus passages, without the use of solutions or probes.

Today, as in times past, … high quality ear candles are handmade from beeswax and unbleached cotton cloth. Through a process of convection, soft waxes and toxins will be drawn out of the ear, oxidized and turned into vapor during the procedure.

While many believe it can bring positive health benefits, you must be the ultimate judge in determining if this time honored practice will be beneficial for you. It is NOT a cure for any disease, illness, or ailment!

Conditions that may improve after ear candling are:

Headaches – Ringing in the Ears – Migraines – Ear Infections – Plugged Ears – Chronic Sinusitis – TMJ Dysfunction – Hearing Challenges – Imbalance – Excessive Wax – Inner Ear Pressure – Ear Aches & Pain

Frequent travelers, swimmers and wind instrument players especially might benefit from ear candling.
