Question from Pookie Bear

Question

I am a 44 yrs old, have incredibly red facial skin (have to wear make-up) and spider veins too. I have recently bought Facial cups and the Circuflow oil as well. Would the suction of the cups not worsen the spider veins and cause new ones to develop? I have bought the body cups too, also for use on spider veins and cellulite. Most importantly I would like to know about whether the facial cups will realistically improve or potentially damage the veins further? Many thanks.

Answer

Thank you very much for your inquiry. Generally, if you’re going to be applying suction to an area where there are already dilated and weakened capillary walls, the chances of you worsening the problem is quite good. I would rather recommend you treat the problem, strengthen the skin in that area, and avoid any practices that may damage or harm your skin. If you’d like to consider treatment for the veins and the redness have a look at Nd:YAG Laser Vein Removal and Limelight for redness.

Hi Dr Allem, I have very sensitive lips. When I wear lipstick my lips become extremely dry and they peel the next day. Can you recommend a product to help and maybe even a lipstick brand that I could wear? Thanks so much!

Question from Cindi

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?

Question

Hello Dr M.

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation. I was told to get persivate cream and cetaphil clanser and lotion, but my skin burns and dries after moisturizing. what should I do next?
