MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- According to Dr. Jess Prischmann, the Winter season can be an excellent time to address areas of skin that have been noticeably affected by Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the Summer sun. At her Minnesota practice, the Minneapolis facial plastic surgeon offers multiple treatments to help rid the face of sun damage, and she says many patients come into her office asking about procedures that will effectively "detox" their skin from the Summer's UV rays. Although many different techniques are used to rejuvenate the face, she believes chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can be particularly effective for UV skin detox.
Chemical peels can be great for ridding the face of sunspots and smaller wrinkles, says Dr. Prischmann. The procedure gently removes the thin surface layer of skin from the face allowing a smoother, less damaged sub-layer to rise and take its place. She says a specific chemical peel is selected for each individual depending on the extent of damage he or she wishes to address:
"Superficial Peels are often used to treat mild exfoliation and generally result in no downtime, whereas Medium-Depth Peels typically require three to five days of downtime and are good for UV detox, brown spots, and fine wrinkles. For issues such as advanced aging, deep wrinkles, and sun damage, a Deep Peel can be a great option and usually requires about a week to 10 days of downtime."
In her experience, Dr. Prischmann also says the treatments have greatly reduced facial lines and blemishes caused by the sun's rays, as well as aided in the improvement of overall skin tone.
Like chemical peels, IPL is also an effective procedure for combating UV rays. IPL therapy is designed to remove UV frequencies in the skin to prevent any further damage. Not to be confused with other laser treatments, the non-invasive procedure consists of light specifically calibrated to penetrate to the source of sun spots and wrinkles. Dr. Prischmann says the technique is not damaging to the skin and patients can expect to see results continuously improve in the weeks following the treatment. She adds that multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results depending upon the severity of the targeted areas.
Although chemical peels and IPL therapy can help treat damage from UV rays, Dr. Prischmann says they are not cure-alls and patients should always wear sunscreen or protective clothing to avoid more severe repercussions later in life. She also says patients need to see a specialist when choosing where to go for facial plastic surgery in Minneapolis because not all brown spots should be treated with chemical peels or IPL, and surgeons need to look for other conditions such as melasma or melanoma.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
