Juvederm is the most popular cosmetic treatment for lip augmentation and lips in general. There are mainly positive reviews all around the internet from people happy with results from treatment to their lips involving Juvederm injections.

Treating Acne Scarring with Soft Tissue Fillers
Scars left from acne can be a great cause of concern to affected patients, especially if they occur on the face. Unfortunately, there are patients for whom conventional treatments such as retinoids, microneedling, peels, and lasers have not produced an adequate response. For these patients, treating their atrophic scarring with hyaluronic acid fillers may be a solution. Overall, these treatments aim to revitalize skin that has pitted or changed shape from scarring by injecting dermal filler carefully into the dermal/epidermal layer underneath the atrophic scar. This can be achieved by either using a targeted approach to treat individual scars with a volumizing filler, or by treating an entire area with a less viscous dermal filler (such as skin boosters, which are used mainly for hydration and skin conditioning). That being said, all types of fillers are used to treat acne scarring. Anatomy of Acne Scarring Scarring from acne may be caused by nodular and cystic acne. Ab [Read more]
Dermal filler  injection treatment for under-eye
Juvederm is one of the most successful treatments for under the eyes concerns. Cosmetic concerns around the eye area are usually wrinkles and bags. What causes under eye bags? Like the rest of the skin and body, the area under the eyes is also susceptible to the signs of aging. Due to the process of aging, important structural tissues in the eye area weaken, including muscles that support the eyelids. Fluid and fat may then relocate and accumulate in areas such as the lower eyelids or below the eyes, causing puffiness and swelling. The swelling, sagginess, or loose skin, as well as the dark hollowness that appear under the eyes are all what are considered under-eye bags. While these symptoms can be worsened by factors such as lack of sleep, increased fluid retention, allergies, or lifestyle choices such as smoking, the main causes for under-eyes bags are aging and heredity. How can Juvederm help treat wrinkles under the eyes and bags? While surgery is an option in some [Read more]
Forehead wrinkles treatment botox vs dermal fillers
Correcting Forehead Wrinkles: Botox vs Dermal Fillers What are forehead wrinkles? Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal creases that occur on the forehead. They are also known as horizontal rows, worry lines, or expression lines. Forehead wrinkles appear when a person makes the same expression repeatedly. What causes them? There are a number of factors that may lead to forehead wrinkles. These include: Aging: With age, collagen synthesis is diminished and the elastin in the skin becomes weaker. This causes the skin to become less supple and firm, making forehead wrinkles more prominent. Exposure to UV rays: UV rays cause the generation of free radicals in the skin and interfere with the synthesis of collagen and elastin, causing the skin to lose it suppleness and firmness, which makes forehead wrinkles more prominent. Genetics: Young individuals can exhibit forehead wrinkles due to their genes. Repetitive facial expressions: Normal animation while talking, [Read more]
Treating Masseter Hypertrophy
Botulinum toxin type A is a neurotoxin that acts by inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at nerve terminals at the neuromuscular junction. As a result, local paralysis is induced, relaxing the muscle into which it is injected. Botulinum toxin also acts on parasympathetic postganglionic cholinergic fibres, making it an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis and hypersalivation. Preliminary studies on the effects of botulinum toxin on conditions like as myokymia, bruxism, and anal fissure have also produced promising results. While primarily known as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkle correction, other potential therapeutic uses for this toxin has emerged in recent times in conditions associated with excessive or dyssynergic muscle contraction, pain, and hypersecretion of glands. An interesting recent discovery uncovered another aspect of Botulinum toxin: it was also found to have pain-relieving effects, which suggests that botulinum toxin has [Read more]
Why you should stop using silicone injectables
Injectable silicone is a liquid substance that has been used for more than 5 decades as a permanent filler to treat wrinkles and augment various parts of the body, including the buttocks and lips. Injectable silicone is harmful, as it can block the blood vessels and can result in serious illness—or even death. They may be counterfeit, contaminated, or dangerous If you buy silicone on the Internet, it is most likely non-medical grade silicone (i.e. silicone that may have come from a hardware store) and is not sterile. Such silicone causes more health complications than medical grade silicone. In worst case scenarios, silicone bought on the Internet may actually be mineral oil, baby oil, tire sealant, and in certain cases, cement. Only licensed doctors can purchase silicone fillers or any other type of medical implant. They are particularly harmful when used by unlicensed professionals Reports of people hosting “pumping parties” where non-licensed d [Read more]
Scars treatment with dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are cosmetic medical devices that assist with a number of skin imperfections, including facial scars. The most popular dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in the human body, including in the skin. Hyaluronic acid depletes as the skin ages, causing sagging and the formation of lines, wrinkles, and folds, particularly in the face. Once injected into the soft tissue, dermal fillers provide an instant volumizing effect, plumping up the skin and smoothing out depressed areas for fresher, more radiant looking skin. Dermal fillers work to fade the appearance of scar in the same way they help lines and wrinkles—they add volume to areas within the skin that are sunken, making the scar even with the surrounding skin and thereby making it less apparent. Can I get rid of my scars with dermal fillers? Just as dermal fillers can help treat a number of different cosmetic issues, they can also help with different t [Read more]
