Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in .
Acne scars can be treated effectively now and you can expect upto 70-80 % improvement.
Treatment modalities include dermaroller and subsicion also fractional CO2 laser can be a good option.chemical peeling with glycolic acid can be a good option.

5 to 7 sittings of any of the modality would be required for optimum effect.
The most effective treatment would be combination of dermarolller with CO2 laser.
Costs of the treatment for chemical peeling and dermaroller would be anywhere around 1.5 to 4 thousand per sitting.
Laser can be a little more costly and upto 5thousand rs per sitting would be required.
However cost depends on type of clinic and city and extent of scars.

Any dermatologist with MD credentials can provide you with these treatment.
Home based treatment is retino a cream at night time daily over scars .this will serve as priming for any procedure.
I will be available for follow up.

Hi Again,

Goels Cutis Skin Studio @ Namdar House Ground Floor, Opp Bandra Police Station, 89 Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai , is a good place to get treatment.

Or you can visit your nearest dermatologist with MD credentials and have a personal consultation for treatment.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

Does wound honey really work in wound healing? I am a diabetic type two had a melanoma removed from my heal a year and seven months ago. I had a skin graft on my foot and have been back to the Muffet Cancer center for follow up so far with no evidence of recurrence. The surgical wound has been very slow in healing now about ninety nine percent healed. The small six by four mm has not healed. I take Tradjenta daily and my blood sugar has never been over 125. Is it reasonable to try the medical honey? I am a retired physician myself

I'm 19 yrs old..& NOT circumcised. Wednesday nigh my girlfriend was giving me oral sex & I started to bleed A LOT! I was very afraid. I went to the hospital that night & all they said was that I had 2 lacerations on my penis.I was bleeding up until I got onto the room bed in the hospital.I think I snapped the frenulum. I'm not too sure at all. I feel no pain or anything like that. The doctors sent me home & said that all I needed to do was apply neosporin & stuff like that for about a week and also abstain from sex for a week or 2. I want a better outlook on this matter because I don't know what to do. Can you help? Also there is a tiny black scab right under the urine slit. It doesn't burn or anything I just want to know how I should remove it & when I can resume sexual activity.
