Dermal Filler Technology The market is currently brimming with a wide variety of dermal filler types and brands. In contrast to botulinum toxin, dermal fillers are used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that are present at rest and to fill depressed scars and lip lines. Throughout the years, substances such as paraffin, silicone, and collagen, have been utilized as dermal fillers to treat soft-tissue imperfections. However, the use of these substances has since been terminated due to the high occurrence of adverse reactions and serious complications, including swelling, lymphadenopathy, granuloma formation, and ulceration. Today, the following dermal filler technology is used: NASHA Technology: NASHA is Galderma’s non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. It is used in Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne. Vycross Technology: Vycross is Allergan’s innovative combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. It is used in Juvederm V [Read more]
patients faqs about botox image
While Botox injections have become a normal way to treat aging skin, it is important for patients to know what they are getting into. Patients should always consult their doctor and do their research before any medical procedure. The below list of 20 common questions patients have regarding Botox and their answers is a good place to start. 1. What is Botox used for? Botox is used to reduce lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing the facial muscles. Wrinkles and lines are often caused by repetitive facial expressions. Relaxing the facial muscles prevents these expressions and results in fewer wrinkles and lines on the face. 2. Where does it work best? Botox works best on the horizontal surprise lines on the forehead, frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (fan-shaped lines extending from the outer corner of each eye), smile lines (lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth), and smoker’s lines (vertical lines around the l [Read more]

Many women choose a tummy tuck after childbirth to return their body to a pre-pregnancy shape. Although the choice is cosmetic, researchers have discovered an abdominoplasty can actually improve two common health concerns: back pain and urinary incontinence. The information could help women find treatment for these post-childbirth health concerns and possibly even prompt insurance companies to cover these helpful surgeries. The abdominoplasty study was prompted by case study reports of patients improving back pain symptoms and incontinence after abdominoplasty with rectus plication. No large studies had investigated this claim, so surgeon D. Alastair Taylor and others in Australia decided to see for themselves if abdominoplasty's benefits really do go well beyond cosmetic improvements. What is Abdominoplasty? Abdominoplasty, often referred to as a tummy tuck and part of a mommy makeover, involves cosmetic improvements to the abdomen. Especially after childbirth, but also after weigh [Read more]

For young women living with rheumatoid arthritis, it seems there may be worse to come. A new study discovered the physical decline associated with rheumatoid arthritis accelerates after menopause, with greater numbers of disease flareups as a woman ages. Rheumatology in Women An estimated 1.3 million adults in the U.S. have rheumatoid arthritis, and women are three times more likely to be affected by this autoimmune disease than men. As a patient's immune system attacks their own body tissues, the lining of the joints can become swollen and painful, and as bones erode, the joints can become deformed. As debilitating as this disease can be for both women and men, previous studies had found the disease shifts as women experience pregnancy, childbirth, and other hormone fluctuations, with decreased symptoms during pregnancy and more flareups after childbirth. Women are also more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis if they have early menopause than those who have normal or lat [Read more]

Doctor holds stethescope and case as he visits patients.
Not that long ago, in the mid-1980s, more than half the doctors in the U.S. worked independently, and less than five percent were in large physician groups. Now healthcare has undergone a dramatic shift, with only 36 percent of physicians working in a solo practice in 2017. 20 percent of physicians now work in groups of 25 or more and 65% of doctors are based in a hospital. If trends continue, by just 2019, an estimated 75 percent of all new physicians will be employed in a hospital. This is driven in part by the newest generation of doctors, who are 2.5 times less likely than their older counterparts to be in solo practice, and the lack of replacements for retiring solo physicians. Many existing doctors are also enticed out of private practice with buyout offers from hospitals and other healthcare providers. With the number of U.S. solo medical practices declining rapidly, it is time to examine the trend, and see what the advantages might be for a new doctor deciding to go it [Read more]
With businesses increasingly embracing online services, it was almost inevitable that medicine would follow. Although teledermatology has become more popular, some still have their doubts about how well doctors can diagnose a patient based on a picture or video. Now, a new study confirms that even a cell phone picture can be effective in helping doctors diagnose skin conditions. Teledermatology involves a virtual patient visit, with a dermatologist or family doctor speaking to a patient through video chat or simply viewing pictures of a skin condition. This and other types of telemedicine can help reach patients who live in remote areas, who do not have a specialist in their region, or who have mobility issues and cannot visit their doctor in person. The service can also make a doctor’s visit quicker and easier, allowing a patient to consult their doctor on the go. The Pediatric Teledermatology Study Patrick McMahon, MD, and a team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia [Read more]

You have probably heard it before: drugs and medical devices from other countries are dangerous. That may make sense on the surface, but once you delve into where drugs are actually made, and who oversees these factories, you realize this is simply not true. When it comes to drug imports, not knowing these details could hit you right in the wallet as you continue to pay more for exactly the same (and just as safe) products than doctors in other countries. 1. Most American drugs and aesthetic devices are made overseas. Buy American: that is what the pharmaceutical companies tell you. When you pay more than $500 to buy Botox from your American suppliers, you are buying a genuine vial of American Botox. The problem is, your American Botox is not made in the U.S.A. at all. All vials of the botulinum toxin are made in one factory and one factory only, located in Ireland. This Irish manufacturing plant produces all the world's Botox, ready for delivery to more than seventy different countr [Read more]
