Cosmetic surgeries you probably didn't know exist
Hive Health Media    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The TV series "Nip/Tuck" portrayed a fountain of youth narrative built around clients who wanted to have a specific type of cosmetic surgery. Not only were these procedures strange and avant-garde, but came close to verging on science fiction. In today's world of high-tech science and medical ingenuity, facelifts, rhinoplasty and breast augmentations are about as mundane as having an unsightly mole removed. Here's a closer look at some lesser-known cosmetic surgeries. More

From the medical field to the beauty industry, lasers are being used to treat all kinds of conditions. They can get rid of hair, they can grow hair; they can make incisions and improve your vision. Some can even make you look younger. KDKA reporter Kym Gable talked to a doctor who was the first in Pittsburgh to use a special kind of laser called "Fraxel" for facial imperfections. More

Latest research about female hair loss, treatment
Hive Health Media    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While fewer women than men will experience hair loss, the emotional consequences for women are far greater. Often women can go into denial by trying to cover up the loss with different hair styles, but this works only for so long, and worse, it can delay effective treatment and make what permanent solutions do exist less effective. Compared to men, less is known about female hair loss and how best to treat it — however, there exists today more highly effective hair loss treatments for women than ever before. More

Stay younger for longer: Is CO2 the new Botox?
Daily Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's being hailed as the new Botox — but as well as smoothing out wrinkles, it's claimed that carboxytherapy can help get rid of dark under-eye circles and fade scars.

The surfeit of CO2 persuades the body it is lacking in oxygen, which prompts a release of oxygen into the blood, improving circulation in the area. More

Touch-sensitive plastic skin heals itself
The Stanford School of Engineering    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nobody knows the remarkable properties of human skin like the researchers struggling to emulate it. Not only is our skin sensitive, sending the brain precise information about pressure and temperature, but it also heals efficiently to preserve a protective barrier against the world. Combining these two features in a single synthetic material presented an exciting challenge for Zhenan Bao, chemical engineering professor, and her team at Stanford University, California. More

New England Center for Investigative Reporting via The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the iTunes store began offering apps that used cellphone light to cure acne, federal investigators knew that hucksters had found a new spot in cyberspace.
