The Application of Laser Therapy in Cosmetic Surgery

11/8/12

It has been my observation that cosmetic/plastic surgeons, no matter how meticulous they may be with regard to technique, including adequate visualization, lighting, hemostasis and suturing with extremely fine filaments — may still obtain results that are unsatisfactory, from an esthetic perspective.

The complications that may occur include hematoma, infection, scar tissue and even keloid formation, with sometimes unsightly healing. This should not produce feelings of guilt or inadequacy on the part of the competent surgeon.

More importantly, we now offer a solution to these universal problems with the utilization of Laser Therapy, which may be administered on completion of the surgery, 2-3 days subsequently or at any time thereafter.

The visual outcome can invariably be elevated to a more acceptable level and may sometimes result in dramatic cosmetic improvement.

If you are interested in exploring this now standardized approach, please feel free to contact Fernanda Saraga, Ph.D. at fernanda@bioflexlaser.com or 416-251-1055 ext. 138 for additional information.

THE STATE OF THE FINANCIAL WORLD

11/5/12

– and how it affects us

The world’s financial systems, as a result of the greed and corruption of Wall Street facilitated by their political cronies, unofficially have been out of control for several decades. The reason for confirmation of these events is that over the past 3 to 4 years, official interest rates in the Western industrialized nations have lingered at near zero levels. This is unprecedented in history and signals a massive disintegration of systemic failure. Quantitative easing and subterraneous inflation fuel both the confusion and conflagration. The end result, barring a miracle, is that these measures will not save the financial markets, our life savings, our pensions or the planet.

To keep the game going, the US Federal Reserve continues to resort to monetary inflation but that process is erosive in the extreme. At the corporate level, including small business, higher costs and shrinking profits compound the problems. Looming over all this is the increasing cost of imposed healthcare systems, which may be called the ‘Insurance Tarp’.

To further muddy the waters, we have the US election, which fields two candidates or parties that are literally making up the facts as required. Neither Obama nor Romney has a definite vision and the US currently has more problems than solutions. One may safely hypothesize that the upcoming election will change nothing − no matter who wins. Despite this I would favor Romney for the potential of real change.

The solutions: return healthcare to the client-provider level, erasing the costly administrative intermediary complex. Similarly, governments must solve the problems they create by radically reducing the number of politicians, political parties and bureaucracies.

Finally, solutions for individual self-preservation: do not purchase any paper – no matter who writes it, sells it or delivers it. Purchase solid income producing properties and acreage that has potential for future development. For immediate needs, purchase precious metals, diamonds, etc. for direct holding. The prognosis – critical at best!
