    DermTV – How to Remove Chickenpox Scars [DermTV.com Epi #382]

    Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz [pause] And welcome to DermTV. Since time immemorial, generations have succumbed to chicken pox infections and their legacy of both crater form and vertical walled, punched out appearing scars. The permanence of these scars is testimony to the fierce assault this virus can wage on the skin. But what assault can we wage on these scars? First, crater form, or softly sloping chicken pox scars are significantly improved and sometimes even completely corrected by a combination of subscision and filler. Subscision involves injecting local anesthesia around the scar and then using a pointed knife to painlessly separate the bottom of the scar from the underlying…

    Proper wound care: How to minimize a scar

    Whenever your skin is injured – whether by accident or from surgery – your body works to repair the wound. As your skin heals, a scar may form, as this is a natural part of the healing process. The appearance of a scar often depends on how well the wound heals. While scars from surgery or over joints like the knees and elbows are hard to avoid, scars caused by minor cuts and scrapes can become less noticeable by properly treating the wound at home. Here are dermatologists’ tips for reducing the appearance of scars caused by injuries such as skinned knees or deep scratches. Always keep your cut, scrape…

    Photoshop Tutorial: How to Quickly Smooth Skin and Remove Blemishes & Scars

    Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. I’m going to show you how to create smooth, blemish-free skin from a photo. This isn’t update of a tutorial I did on an earlier version of Photoshop.

There are many ways to do this, so choose the method that works best for you. For example, you could use your Quick Selection tool and drag over the skin to select it. To remove areas at the selection, press and hold Alt or Option as you drag over…

    How a wound heals itself – Sarthak Sinha

    The largest organ in your body isn’t your liver or your brain. It’s your skin, with a surface area of about 20 square feet in adults. Though different areas of the skin have different characteristics, much of this surface performs similar functions, such as sweating, feeling heat and cold, and growing hair. But after a deep cut or wound, the newly healed skin will look different from the surrounding area, and may not fully regain all its abilities for a while, or at all. To understand why this happens, we need to look at the structure of the human skin. The top layer, called the epidermis, consists mostly of hardened…

    Traditional versus Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure Animation.

    Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel or laser lasabrasion, is a procedure using laser beams to reduce certain skin imperfections such as wrinkles, pigment spots, scars and blemishes. The skin is composed of three layers: epidermis (the outermost), dermis and hypodermis. The dermis contains bundles of well organized collagen fibers which contribute to the firmness and smoothness of the skin. As the skin gets older, these fibers become less in number and also less organized, wrinkles and age spots appear. Laser beams destroy the outer layer of the skin removing unwanted wrinkles and spots. At the same time, the heat of the beams stimulates the growth of collagen…
