Treat Forehead Lines with Botox For decades, Botox has been the treatment of choice for horizontal forehead lines. Botulinum toxin is the top nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S. since 2000, with over 4 million procedures performed in 2016. Generally, forehead lines create a stressed, worried, and fatigued appearance. Repetitive contractions of the frontalis muscle is the main cause of these lines. Treating this region may be the most nuanced of cosmetic neurotoxin injections, as it can compromise the brow area. An experienced and board-certified injector is in great demand, judging from the popularity of the procedure among female and male patients. How to determine who is a good candidate The presence of horizontal forehead lines is directly proportional to a patient’s age. It will be more beneficial for younger patients with minimal lines to undergo Botox procedure, as severe forehead wrinkles in older patients cannot be corrected by botulinum toxin alo [Read more]
Restylane for the Forehead before and after picture
Using Restylane to treat forehead rhytids is efficacious, easy, and safe, and is of great benefit to patients, who appreciate the quick procedure with no recovery period. What are forehead rhytids? Forehead rhytids are wrinkles that horizontally traverse the forehead and occur as a result of facial aging. Repeated muscle motion in the frontalis muscle from facial expressions often causes these lines to appear. When the effects of gravity set in, these wrinkles become static, persisting even when the face is at rest. Restylane fillers for wrinkle correction  Generally speaking, forehead wrinkles are best treated with fillers that have low to moderate G prime ('G’), as these gels tend to be less viscous and more easily spreadable. Low viscosity fillers are favoured in the forehead region due to the anatomy of the area: here, the skin is relatively thin, which heightens the risk of visible lumps and irregularities. Restylane is a popular brand of hyaluronic acid- [Read more]
Medium and Deep Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments aimed at conditioning the skin of the face or body. These treatments involve the use of a chemical solution that incurs controlled destruction at a specific skin depth, resulting in the sloughing off of dead skin. Once this occurs, newly regenerated skin replaces the old layer, which is usually smoother and has less pigmentation and blemishes. Chemical peeling has been practised in the field of dermatology since the early 1950s, when phenol was used to treat acne scarring. These preliminary techniques have since evolved with time and have given rise to the use other peeling agents, such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that penetrate the skin at different depths to produce different results. This produces an improved side effect profile and a shortened recovery period. The chemical peel is a common treatment in aesthetic practices due to its efficacy in treating the signs of aging such as dull skin, dis [Read more]

botox for hair treatment
Can Botox fix hair loss? Doctors discovered that botulinum toxin type A was helpful for treating hair loss by chance when patients saw an improvement after receiving Botox for other issues. Some dermatologists have found that using Botox to treat excessive scalp sweating can help hair in itself, as stopping the scalp from sweating keeps hair looking stringy and unclean. From this treatment, some doctors have noticed that new hair was able to grow in areas that received injections. Seeing and hearing these results, researchers have started to study the effects in clinical studies. In a study, 50% of subjects reported new hair growth. Another study that treated patients using a combination of botulinum toxin injections and polyrevitalizing solutions showed many promising results. Subjects self-assessed the effectiveness of treatment using a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 meaning no effect and 10 meaning beyond expectation. They rated 5 different criteria: hydration, thickness, [Read more]

It appears as a hollow or darkened shadow underneath the eye and is more commonly known as under eye bags. While the imperfection may be confused for skin discoloration, it is actually caused by the tear trough. Some people naturally have tear troughs, while others develop them later in life. If a younger person has tear troughs, it is likely due to an imbalance called a negative vector orbit, which causes the eyeball to protrud [Read more]

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]
