Photodynamic Therapy is a treatment that kills cancer cells with the use of special drugs that are activated by a certain kind of light. Depending on the part of the body being treated, the photosensitizing agent is placed on the skin and absorbed by the cancer cells, then light is applied to the area. The light causes the drug to react with oxygen, which forms a chemical that kills the cells.
Hyperhidrosis or over sweating is a serious problem that occurs daily and often at the most inopportune times. A dramatic breakthrough in the treatment of hyperhidrosis was discovered by injecting Botox into those areas, almost having stopped the sweating at the injection site. Typically one treatment will control sweating for months and many physicians have found that after several treatments the need for further injections lessens dramatically, leaving some individuals appearing to be "cured".
The harsh winter months are very drying to your skin due to the low humidity not to mention the wind that is so prevalent in Wyoming which worsens this dryness. There are many ways to "tone up your skin" such as a Hydrafacial. This treatment that is very much like a microdermabrasion, adds a hydrating element that enhances skin moisturization and allows for introduction of skin cosmoceutials such as TNS that reduces wrinkles and promotes new collagen production and has been used to improve brown spots as well as acne and oily skin. This procedure is both refreshing and relaxing and designed for all skin types.
