    1. Stop looking in mirrors. Even if you have the most 'perfect' face in the world, constant mirror watching will eventually show you blemishes which aren't really there.

    Stress, they say, is responsible for 80% and above of all organic illnesses, and beating it - or at least calming it from time to time - can only help, not hinder. Symptoms are, by default, bound to...

    Melissa is absolutely right: healing can take weeks, which is why any good V-beam practitioner will caution a wait of two months between treatments. I had my last V-beam on 15th May - approximately...

    Change your doctor. Or if you're with a group practice, try one of their other GPs. And push a little; sometimes if you don't push, you get shoved.

    Even if you haven't misheard, and they did indeed tell you that you can go every month, I'd steer clear of it if I were you. A good practitioner will not consider laser treatments that are fewer than...
