Treating your body with Internal Medicine is a great way to get started with treating a disease.
When you are working with internal medicine, your doctor is trained to treat a variety of diseases whether they are chronic recurring or acute. This way of managing these different types of illnesses helps your doctor treat the problem plus add better conditions to your overall health and wellness.
Internal Medicine helps Prevent Diseases
When you use the internal medicine treatment options, because you are treating your whole body plus the actual problem, you are giving yourself a running start at preventing other types of disease from beginning. For example, if you are an individual that needs to lose a lot of weight, the doctor will set you up with a plan to help you begin to manage your weight. But while you are managing your weight, you will also be preventing some serious diseases from ever starting like stroke, cancer, heart disease, heart attack, and even joint pain.
Individuals applying for green cards are required to have a medical exam completed as part of their immigration application.
The exam is necessary to ensure that the applicant does not have any infectious diseases or other conditions that would make him or her inadmissible to the United States. Physical exams are required for applicants of all ages.
Who Performs Immigration Medical Exams?
Unlike regular medical exams, exams for immigration purposes must be performed by doctors known as civil surgeons. These doctors practice within the United States and have been specifically selected by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) department for the purpose of performing these exams. The exams are more involved than standard physical exams and include additional screening tests that are not part of routine medical exams.

PDO Thread Lift
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are a relatively new form of non-surgical face lift. If your face has loosening or sagging skin and you want a tighter, fresher more youthful look, this treatment may be suitable. There are no cuts or incisions, justinjections
How does it work?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein.Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin). It also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid, both substances are key to maintaining firm, youthful looking skin.
Is it safe?
PDO threads have over a decade long safety track record in surgery and wound closure. PDO threads gained FDA approval.
What happens during treatment?
Lidocaine injection applied to the entry points following which threads are introduced into the skin through a fine needle- into either the skin itself, the muscle, or the subcutaneous fat. The treatment results in an immediate improvement in appearance but the results will improve over ensuing days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. The appearance of the skin improves in terms of overall texture, becoming thicker, tighter and firmer as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.
Which areas can be treated?
This is a very versatile treatment which can be used in any part of the face and neck to treat sagging brows,nasolabial lines, vertical and horizontal forehead wrinkles, drooping cheeks, marionette lines, sagging jawline,plus wrinkles and folds on the chin and neck.
What results can I expect?
Thread-lift treatments result in an instant and natural looking improvement in the appearance of the skin. A process of natural protein synthesis then begins af ter about 10-14 days. Over the subsequent weeks results will continue to improve, peaking at around 6 months and lasting for up to 2 years as your own body produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Making this form of non surgical facelift a very long lasting treatment. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks, after which new collagen has formed around the thread to continue to support results, maintaining a smooth and supple texture of the skin.
