Accutane Lawsuit

I guess those that have been suffering from cystic acne have heard or have been prescribed to take Accutane by their doctors. That medicine raised a controversy in 2006 when studies showed that taking Accutane can increase the risk of the patient in contracting IBD inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis. Due to that anAccutane lawsuit was filed by many victims. In 2007, a victim was even awarded with a $2.5 million in damages resulting to accutane use.

I know that there are still a lot of patients that have been affected by the use of this drug and just in case they didn’t know, they can still file a lawsuit against their doctor of they have been prescribed by the already banned drug.

Women's Passion for Laser Hair Removal, Botox and more

Women will always be vain. There’s always a reason to be worried when something atypical happened to our bodies. Be it acne, lines on the face, scaly skin, darkening armpits or whatever they can notice on our bodies. With all these concerns, women tend to find ways on how to solve these problems. It only shows that we want to take care of our physical beauty aside from of course the inner beauty.

Aside from that, women also worry about the unwanted hair in their armpits, legs, bikini area and other parts of the body. There are many ways on how to remove it but other methods such as shaving can harm and irritate the skin and can even make it worst. Laser hair removal is by far one of the popular method in removing those unwanted and unsightly hairs, which is proven safe and gives good results.

When we want to enhance our physical beauty, we need to look for reputable and licensed beauty centers or clinics that can really take care of us and our concerns

Dermatologist of the Stars

I always love watching Salamat Dok every Sundays after waking up in the morning. This morning, Dra. Vicki Belo, a renowned dermatologist of local celebrities is the guest and they're talking about skin problems like acne and how to properly treat it. She has suggested numerous procedures and products that can alleviate that skin problem and even showed some video footages to help viewers.

It was always a delight to see her on TV teaching some tips and answering questions of the callers. How'd I wish I'll have the chance to her clinic and have my oily face. I don't have an acne but I'm also wishing to have those flawless and beautiful skins that many of her clients have.

Aside from going to her clinic, there's so much info about acne and treatments that we can find online, you can start if you click here. The best thing if you have an acne is not to prick it and consult your derma if you can.

I remember few months ago my sis Joy emailed me some photos of her daughter M. She wanted to show me how bad M's face looked when she got those nasty acne on her face. I was in shock to see her rough face bec. of those acne and I will not wonder anymore why she's bugging her mom to accompany her to the dermatologist.

Thankfully, after months of consultation, taking oral medication and using acne treatment cream, her face slowly went back to normal. I guess her hormones acted so weird during her teenage years and now fortunately there are not so much scars that left because it was treated early.
