Hi Dr. Allem, Please Advise Whether You Have Had Any Patients

Question

Hi Dr. Allem,
Please advise whether you have had any patients who opted for carboxytherapy on the lower eyelids to reduce puffines and if so were they satisfied? I read that carboxytherpay for lower eyelids to reduce puffiness is quite risky and not always successful. Please advise

Answer

Hi there. This is a great question. I have had carboxy myself for this very same problem and I have had fantastic results. You can view my before and after pictures at any one of our Skin Renewal Branches or on our Website. I understand that Carboxy is of course a risky treatment, but I will honestly say that this really depends on the competency of your practitioner. Around the eyes there are very specific protocols for how we treat the eyes and if these are followed to the letter, there really is very little risk. Unfortunately there are many practitioners who use these therapies without adequate training and then you have patients getting poor results and in some cases bad reactions. So to answer you, I am very much pro- Carboxy for the eyes, provided it is done correctly.

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)

Question

Hi Dr Maureen, I have oily skin and in my 30s. I’m looking for a skincare treatment that will assist with clearing my skin and keep the oiliness at bay as well as serve as an anti aging. It doesn’t have to be in the same jar. I’m currently using Mineraline Time-it products for anti-aging, but it’s not doing anything for the oilyness and the random breakouts. Please could you advice.
