Retinol Tolerance: What You Need to Know Retinoids are found in the skincare routines of many, as these are the second-best methods for preventing aging, right after sunscreen. Comprising vitamin A and its derivatives, retinoids work by binding to nuclear receptors and modulating the expression of genes that regulate cell differentiation and proliferation. This causes normalisation of cell keratinisation, which is the process of the outermost cells of the epidermis being replaced by keratin. Tretinoin is a natural retinoid available by prescription, and tazarotene and adapalene are synthetic retinoids. There are also many over the counter products made with retinol and retinyl esters, such as the Zo product line, that are easy to incorporate into a routine for people seeking skin rejuvenation and a youthful complexion. While retinoids are sometimes avoided due to their side effects, these can be overcome with proper use. Benefits of Topical Retinoids When Kligman and Willis intro [Read more]

When it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, there are many different potential causes. It is important to understand what causes you can attribute to your specific case, as this is often the deciding factor when considering treatments. It also helps to understand the general causes of fine lines and wrinkles so that you can be proactive in slowing down their appearance. Common Causes of Fine Lines and Wrinkles Some of the most common causes of fine lines and wrinkles include the following: Age: Unfortunately, there is little to be done for the aging process. As the skin ages, the body slows down its collagen and elastin production. This mostly happens in areas surrounding the eyes, mouth, neck and forearms, causing fine lines and wrinkles. The Sun: Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays breaks down your skin’s connective tissue and speeds up the skin’s aging process. Facial Movement: Repeated facial movements that tense the muscles also cause wrinkles and fine li [Read more]
dermal-fillers-after-weight-loss
Many people want to lose weight because of how good they will feel, and how active their new lifestyles will be. We almost never think of what that weight loss will do to the skin! After losing weight, many people who previously had smooth, wrinkle-free skin, experience sagging and a loss of elasticity, which makes skin look older or deflated. When this happens, you can be left feeling unhappy about ever having lost weight at all. Thankfully, dermal fillers can help regain the skin’s smoothness and elasticity following weight loss. What Effect Does Weight Loss Have on Skin and How Can Dermal Fillers Help? When the body loses weight, the skin loses its volume and elasticity, which makes it appear sallow and wrinkled, especially in the face and neck. This can even lead to under-eye bags and crow’s feet where there weren’t any before. Dermal fillers add volume to the skin and fill in wrinkles. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period o [Read more]
Pharmacy Checker's Antitrust Suit Against Big Pharma
This summer, Pharmacy Checker launched a lawsuit against a number of Big Pharma groups alleging the use of shadow regulation to control consumer access to information regarding online foreign pharmacies offering low-cost medications to United States residents. These groups, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP), Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies Ltd. (CSIP), LegitScript LLC, and Partnership for Safe Medicines, Inc. (PSM), are accused of leveraging relationships with internet gate keepers including search engines and domain name registrars. They are doing so in order to blacklist legitimate Canadian pharmacies, foreign pharmacies, and PharmacyChecker.com, restricting access to valuable information regarding ordering medication online, monopolizing the market and keeping U.S. drug prices high. Brand name medications can cost up to 90% less from a reputable international pharmacy than from a US pharmacy - [Read more]
what-are-dermal-fillers
In the age of selfies, we’re so concerned with how we’re going to appear in that next Instagram photo, it’s no wonder so many people are interested in improving the look of their face. As we age, the network of collagen fibers that supports the connective tissue of our face begins to degrade. This means that as we get older, we are more susceptible to lines, wrinkles, and hollows. While we can do our part to slow the process down, like a healthy diet and lifestyle, it’s an inevitable part of getting older. When it comes to keeping your face looking younger and firmer, dermal fillers are a great treatment option. Organic chemicals, fillers often take the form of a gel. These gels are injected into wrinkles, lines, and hollows to “fill them out” and add volume. The most popular treatment areas are the regions surrounding the eyes, cheeks, lips, and jawline. Medica Depot offers several types of dermal fillers, each of which is made from different ingr [Read more]
Possible Filler Complications?
Filler Complications Introduction The increased popularity of dermal fillers in enhancing facial aesthetics is due to their minimally invasive nature, short recovery time, and excellent outcomes. While collagen fillers dominated the market for over 20 years since their approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, it was the emergence of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that paved the way for new filler brands and technologies. As with any medical procedure, a multitude of complications can occur after filler injection. The supposed reversibility of HA-based fillers adds their popularity; however, increased use of these fillers also puts less common but significant side effects in the spotlight. Injecting physicians must be aware of the adverse effects associated with dermal fillers because some of these complications can be devastating and irreversible. Additionally, some complications occur more frequently with specific filler materials or products; thus, the injector mu [Read more]
