Moles are common. Almost every adult has a few of them. Adults who have light skin often have more moles. They may have 10 to 40 moles on their skin and this is normal. The good news is that a number of safe and scar-less mole removal techniques are available.
Who can develop moles?
- 1% of the population is born with one or more congenital moles
- people with light skin tend to have more moles than those with dark skin
- moles that appear during childhood (between 2 and 10 years) tend to be the most prominent and persistent throughout life
- moles that appear later in life usually appear after exposure to the sun
Although the exact cause of the proliferation of moles is not known, it is certain that the number of moles depends on genetic factors, sun exposure and immune health.
Often, people with many moles are part of families whose members have numerous moles. Also, people exposed chronically to the sun (such as those living in Australia or New Zealand) have more moles than their relatives who live in less sunny places (for example their Northern European counterparts). Administration of immunosuppressive drugs leads to an increase in the number of moles.
What are the clinical aspects of moles?
- They can appear in any part of the body
- They can be flat or embossed
- They can vary in color from the skin, pink, light brown or dark, blue or black
- Those with lighter skin tend to have lighter moles while those with dark skin have dark brown or black moles
- Although they are often round or oval, they can also have unusual shapes
- They range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter
Academy Laser Clinics offer a quick and scarless technique to remove these lesions called radiosurgery. This uses radiofrequency to manually shave or excise the lesion, whilst cauterizing surrounding tissue. This means no scalpel or blade cutting, minimal bleeding and no need for sutures, which significantly reduces the chance of scar tissue developing. A thorough pre consultation will be carried out before your treatment to check that you are suitable for this treatment.
Whilst once the pressure may have mainly been on women to look their best, increasingly, men are concerned with their appearance, and this applies to all parts of the body. Studies show that the number of men who want a penis enlargement is big and ever increasing.
The size of the penis depends on several factors, from genetic factors to hormones. During puberty, the penis increases in size under the action of male sex hormones, but its receptivity to hormones is lost after the puberty, the size of the penis can no longer be influenced.
The size of the penis: what is normal and what is not?
Extensive research has shown that 70% of the male population has a penile length of 12 to 16 cm when erect. A penis can only be considered abnormally small if it measures less than 6 cm in erection. The opinion of the specialists is that this also has no absolute value, being related to the anatomical dimensions of the partner, which depend on the race etc. Moreover, peoples recognized as having smaller penis sizes (Korea, Japan, China, India) are proving to have a very sustained reproductive capacity. Studies show that up to 60% of men are unsatisfied with the size or appearance of their penis. Guys have the same concerns about their bodies as women do and may lack confidence because of this.
However, there are several penis enlargement plastic surgery types that can be of great help. CALIBRE offers a great treatment that is performed as an in-clinic procedure, over 1-3 sessions, by their certified CALIBRE Doctors. This is non-surgical procedure so mitigates the risks of surgery that may put many men off of penis enlargement procedures. There are many dermal filler products and brands available with widely varying quality, results, price, longevity and side-effects. With the use of numbing cream, there is minimal discomfort. The dermal filler is also laced with lidocaine, which numbs the area instantly.
CALIBRE Clinic has identified a small range of dermal filler options to suit varying patient circumstances. The best product for you will be determined after a detailed explanation of risks and benefits during your confidential doctor consultation.
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for an Eye Lift This surgical procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the eyelid and surrounding areas.
The skin loses its elasticity and muscle strength during the aging process. These processes also occur at the level of the eyelids, and promote the folding of the fat packs both in the upper and lower eyelids, therefore contributing to the appearance of aging, sometimes premature, of the skin. As well as affecting appearance, this can also diminish the filed of vision as it may become difficult or impossible to fully open the eyes.
Blepharoplasty is an operation that corrects the appearance of fallen eyes by removing excess skin and adipose tissue from the area. In the clinic, this type of surgery is carried out with the Ultrapulse Encore CO2 laser, which allows the intervention to be performed in the safest conditions with excellent aesthetic results.
The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but it can also be done using local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. All incisions are placed in areas of natural withering, so that the final scar is practically invisible.
Blepharoplasty can be completed within the same procedure with skin rejuvenation that treats wrinkles, uniformizes color and increases skin tone. Academy Face and Body use the fractional CO2 laser (Active FX, Deep FX or Total FX) that allows us to handle all these modulated problems by adapting the parameters to the degree of skin aging.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and, if necessary, fat and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids, in order to re-invigorate the look of the eyes. This procedure can be combined with other facial aesthetic procedures to help restore the youthful and young look of your face.
