Ulthera, most often called Ultherapy, is one of the newest and most effective non-surgical approaches to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck and decolletage using ultrasound technology.

In most cases, you can easily blame excess hair on your face on your hormones. Male hormones called androgens are responsible for the development of certain ‘manly’ features like deepening of voice or production of sperm. And the one hormone behind all this is called testosterone. But women produce testosterone too, albeit in smaller quantities. If, for some reason, this hormone’s level increases in women, it leads to increased sex drive, irregular menstrual cycle and yes, excessive facial and body hair.
One of the main causes of high levels of male sex hormones in premenopausal women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition which causes cysts to grow around the edge of the ovaries (the organs which produce eggs and sex hormones).

Moles are caused when skin cells, known as melanocytes, grow in a group or cluster, instead of being spread across the skin. Most moles appear in the first 30 years of life. They are more common, and prominent, in fair-skinned people, and a propensity for having moles can also run

Pregnancy can make them darker, puberty can multiply them, and their numbers are likely to diminish in old age.However, moles always stay for years, unlike freckles, which tend to be smaller and paler and can temporarily pop out after sun exposure.
