What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo (vi·tuh·lai·gow) is an unending condition where pale white patches spread in the skin. This is due to melanin deficiency. It is a disorder in which white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. It hits any part of the skin but commonly arises on the face, neck, and hands. It may also affect the hair returning gray or white in the affected area and also, inside of the mouth. High possibilities it will affect the whole body, it is called complete vitiligo or universal. It will affect people of any age and gender. According to studies is likely to start around the age of 20. It is hard to anticipate whether the patches spread, and until when. It might spread in weeks, or hold stable in a month or maybe years. It is more visible to dark or tanned skin. 

Types of vitiligo:

Non-segmental Vitiligo – is the most known type of vitiligo, accounting for up to 90% of cases.  This illness is visible on both sides of the body. Usually appears on the back of your hands, arms, around the eyes, feet, knees, and elbows. 

Segmental Vitiligo –   is a less common type of vitiligo. The patches affect one side of the body. And, it’s more common in children. 

Based on studies, there are 1% of people worldwide having it. There is still no medical care that will re-pigment the skin. As stated by a dermatologist, having vitiligo is high risk for skin cancer because of the natural protection lacking in skin pigment melanin against the sun harmful rays. It is important to have additional care in the skin by putting sunscreen with a sun protection factor, sunglasses and protective clothing from the sun. (SPF). Must avoid long exposure to the sun it can make vitiligo worse. 

Can someone with vitiligo get a tattoo?

Many have shared their thoughts about people with this kind of skin condition in getting a tattoo done. However, there was no straightforward answer. Considering the results after the procedure. The color pigment is injected under the skin or dermis. This process can be applied in the white patches area in the skin to make the color balanced with the normal skin you have. It is important to choose the right color that fits your skin even though it is too hard to cherry-pick the right one because skin color changes with sun exposure and getting old. In addition, the patches might spread in time and even it looks perfect after the procedure patches might develop.

Having a tattoo might worsen it but many vitiligo patients did the procedure because they got what they expected. A lot have gained more confidence when they had it covered. Some have lived with it! Whether you had it inked or not, be a better person by accepting your imperfections. 

Get it winged!

Permanent makeup has evolved over the years. This has started since the 1970s in the form of a tattoo artist. However, there is a difference between the body and cosmetic tattoos. The body tattoo takes up to the third layer of the skin. While the cosmetic or permanent makeup is only up to the first layer of the skin. See the photo below.

 

 

Furthermore, it is originated in Ancient Egypt. There, both men and women from high status to lower class use eyeliner to define their eyes and a shield from wrinkles. And also, to protect the skin from the sun. Eyeliner is not just a style but a connection to their religion and gods that they adopt many years ago. On the ground of this, having makeup come to be a source of their inner power and to protect from evil. 

Now that technology has made headway so is the world of makeup. Many women have loved the changes in their looks when they put the makeup on. A lot could not leave their homes without putting some color on the face, lips, or even on our eyeliner! Makeup has truly changed the way every woman lives. When permanent makeup became a trend, even men found a solution to their problems as well! 

This is the generation of a #IWokeUpLikeThis. Just like having your brows done, women would take so much time doing their eyeliner. Plus, that messy look when you made a wrong stroke! We wanna kick that away! Right, girls? Wake up having a cat-eye look!! Many of us have struggled on how to put it perfectly. 

The permanent eyeliner is just an easy and quick technique. The procedure will mark attention to the eye and make the lashes look growing. And, greatly enhance the shape of your eyes. The procedure will take one hour to finish. A needle is used to deposit ink into the first layer of the skin. And to avoid any complication, stop taking any blood clotting medication 3 days prior to your appointment. Just to minimize possible bleeding. Pregnant, nursing or having a severe sickness is not a good candidate for this procedure, you might have encountered difficulties in the healing process.

Permanent eyeliner will last for 2- 3 years. Touch- up is recommended to freshen up the color.

AFTERCARE FOR SEMI-PERMANENT EYELINER

  •  No contact lenses on the day of your procedure

Skin Fuel – The anti-aging procedures

Aging, the process of getting older. When we hear the word old, not all of us would be willing to accept that fact. Most of us are proud to tell people our age but look younger than expected. Many would take supplements that could make them look young. Some would take a Yoga class as it will help to release all stress that can make us have an old appearance. There are a lot of anti-aging products in the marketplace, but a number of people would really invest in a surgical or a non-surgical procedure. We all wanted an immediate effect. Let us take a look at these no-knife and with cuts anti-aging procedures. 

Non- Surgical is a medical treatment that does not involve cutting of the skin, considered as a safe and effective treatment of choice. We, women prefer to do this, as we want to achieve a youthful glow. See the non-surgical procedures below: 

  • Botulinum Toxin is considered safe and effective for the reduction of facial wrinkles and relaxation of the muscles. 

  • Hyaluronic Acid is approved as temporary fillers for facial augmentation. This procedure process by very fine needles. It can smooth the wrinkles and paralyzed the muscles. Will last 3- 9 months and most people do it twice or thrice a year. 

  • Nonsurgical Fat Reduction is an injected process that reduces fat, pregnant or breastfeeding should not take this procedure. A patient must retain their weight in order to have a result that will last long. And to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • Hair Removal is a procedure that fast and painless treatment gives lasting results. This will also remove spots and wrinkles.

  • Chemical Peel uses a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. Patients will experience a burning sensation for almost 10 minutes. Avoid any medical procedure during this time for 10 days before the surgery it might result in blood clotting.

  • Plasma Fibroblast is a cosmetic therapy, low risk, and cheaper surgery. Numbing cream is applied to ease pain during the treatment. The healing process is a maximum of 10 days. 

While surgical treatment is always more expensive than non-surgical. This could really hurt your pocket. However, even if it would cost arms and legs, many still want to choose this kind of procedure.

  • Facial rejuvenation and the anti-aging procedure are one of the best treatment making your skin look smoother, younger and having a healthier glow. It can be performed through a surgical and non-surgical procedure. 
  •  Eyelid Surgery or eye lift. It reduces bagginess from the lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. Healing process takes about 2 weeks. 
  • Facelift creates a smoother and youthful face. Surgeon’s removes excess skin to reshape the lower part of the face. The procedure will take almost 5 hours. And it will not last long, after 5-6 years you’ll need an additional procedure such as a neck lift, eyelid surgery, forehead lift, brow lift, chemical or laser peel, and cheek or chin implants. A facelift is so expensive and not covered by insurance. 
  • Laser skin resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier. Its removes skin layer by layer with clarity. Your surgeon asks not to take any medications 10 days before the surgery, it can cause blood clotting. If you smoke you should stop it 2 weeks before it will perform, it might prolong healing. 
  • Nose Job or Rhinoplasty is one of the most usual cosmetic procedure it will change nose shape, to have a more pleasing appearance. Improve its function for breathing problems resulting from birth defects can be solved. 

If you have to decide on choosing a surgical procedure you have to choose the surgeons you trust. Always check if they are licensed and certified to do the job. Make sure that the clinic has sanitary precautions. We just don’t want to enhance our physical look, we always have to ensure that we are in safe hands.

Beautiful – Point of view

Beautiful. A positive word that everyone would love to hear. A simple word with deep definitions. A word that describes every wonderful creation. A word that defines a woman inside or out. See how this word is being said in different languages.

Too many definitions that can be found online and via Social Media. Research has been done to know what is a man’s point of view of a beautiful woman. Most men would see the physical beauty, but these two nailed it!

“You know what makes a woman beautiful? When she cooks me dinner.” —Tucker, 25

“Aside from her inner beauty – she is beautiful when she gets inked! —Keith, 32

It is true that most of us would see beauty physically and if we get to know the person, that is the time we see the inner beauty. However, we are not perfect, we always judge on what we see. The first impression. That is why in the real world, almost all women would spend millions just to achieve the physical beauty they wanted to see from themselves.

The technology has evolved through the years and there are a lot of ways to get your desired look. From different kind of beauty soaps up to the injectable procedures. A large number of cosmetic surgeons would offer their profession and transform your look to who you want to be. It doesn’t matter if it would cost arms and legs, you can never resist such magic!

There are some natural techniques to be beautiful or to be more beautiful in the eyes of many. Yet, we all want the fastest way of a change! We would hear a lot saying “no pain, no gain”, or “patience is a virtue”. Physical beauty will pass. Whether you got inked or you have totally made a major change of yourself physically, it will pass. True beauty will always be from within.
