Botox for Sweaty Hands
If you have cold, clammy hands that do not seem to improve no matter what you do, you may have a medical condition known as palmar hyperhidrosis. Individuals with this condition sweat excessively in the palms. Patients with palmar hyperhidrosis can be negatively impacted to a significant degree by their condition, experiencing difficulties in occupational and social situations. Previously, the traditional methods of treating hyperhidrosis were either ineffective—in the case of topical antiperspirants—or invasive—in the cases of the excision of the sweat glands, arthroscopic shaving of the glands, and endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy. Botox treatments are usually suggested after treatments like topical therapy and tap water iontophoresis have failed to produce satisfactory results. How does Botox help reduce excessive sweating of the palms? When Botox is injected intradermally, the toxin acts to chemically denervate the eccrine sweat glands within the treate [Read more]

In recent years, the medical aesthetic sector has seen the advent of numerous novel fillers and injectable agents to meet the increasing demand for cosmetic injectable procedures. With so many new products on the market, it can be confusing for both practitioners and patients alike to decide on the right filler for a patient’s aesthetic needs. In this article, two well-known and reputable cosmetic fillers, Juvederm and Sculptra, will be examined in detail and compared in terms of their attributes, advantages, and drawbacks. Cosmetic filler types Cosmetic fillers can be classified according to the soft tissue augmenting agent that the filler is composed of and its mode of action. Volume replacement fillers—like hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvederm, Teosyal, and Restylane—instantly augment tissue by physically filling space in the skin, thereby plumping the tissue and smoothing and subcutaneous depressions. On the other hand, collagen biostimulators, s [Read more]
An Overview of Nonsurgical Body Contouring Treatments
The demand for body contouring treatments is at an all-time high: the IMCAS projects that the value of the body contouring and energy devices segment of the global aesthetic medical and surgical market is set to reach 2.3 billion euros in 2018, a substantial increase from its valuation of 1.5 billion euros in 2013. This can be attributed to the constant innovation and development in the industry that has resulted in the recent emergence of treatment modalities that cater to reshaping the body and reducing or eliminating areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. Traditionally, patients only had the option of excising fat through body contouring surgical procedures, such as brachioplasty, abdominoplasty, or the like in order to achieve their aesthetic goals. However, the available options have expanded considerably since, thereby allowing patients to seek alternative treatments that may be far more suitable for them in terms of price and safety.

The lips are an important element of the aesthetics of the face. The effects of aging and gravity affect the lips through volume depletion and the loss of elasticity and support, resulting in perioral lines, thinning of the lips, and downturned oral commissures. In some patients, aesthetic defects that may not be age-related—such as asymmetry or disproportionality, like an excessively smaller upper or lower lip—can also be corrected with filler injections. Because of these aesthetically adverse developments, it should come as no surprise that many patients request treatments to enhance or augment their lips and the perioral region. With a large selection of dermal fillers available to choose from, selecting the right filler for the patient that will achieve their desired aesthetic effect can sometimes be a daunting task. This article will provide insight into one such potential filler, Juvederm Voluma, and highlight its use in the lips and the perioral region. Juved [Read more]
: Everything you need to know about Botox for Penis
There is no shortage of demand for solutions to cosmetic or medical issues related to the penis. Concerns about size and sexual function are common among men, and for that reason, much research and resources have been devoted to finding a “Holy Grail” therapy that can provide long-term solutions in an effective and minimally invasive manner. Now, emerging results from sexual health studies have pointed to botulinum toxins, such as Botox, as having the potential to revolutionize how male sexual dysfunctional disorders are treated. Anatomy of the human penis The human penis consists of a penile shaft that is made up of three columns of tissue: two corpora cavernosa on either side of the corpus spongiosum that is situated in between. The urethra runs through the center of the corpus spongiosum and is the main passage for urine and semen. At the tip of the penis, the tissue of the corpus spongiosum expands into a structure known as the glans penis. The corpora [Read more]

Correcting Signs of Aging Under the Eyes
If your patients complain of “puffy”, pronounced eye bags, dark circles or of constantly appearing tired even if they are well-rested, they may benefit from filler treatments. How do dark circles and eye bags form? Some dark circles may appear from sleep deprivation and will improve with a good night’s rest. But constant dark circles below the eyes that will not go away may be a result of a tear trough deformity. This is when there are contour irregularities in the areas right beneath the eyes that cause or exacerbate shadowing in that area. Tear trough deformities can also result in the development of eye bags, which are the puffy areas in the lower eyelid. Tear trough deformities can be a result of genetics but can also be a product of aging. The descent of fat and skin due to the loss of facial volume and elasticity contributes to this condition, further exacerbating the situation. In these cases, filling the tear tough can help immensely. Radiess [Read more]
Radiesse for Hands
Aging negatively affects the hands aesthetically, causing the accentuation of the veins and crepe-like skin. These changes are due to the loss of volume, hydration, and elasticity, which makes this area a common source of concern. Traditional treatments were invasive and have always been limited in their scope and success rate, but this has changed with the advent of cosmetic fillers. However, one major drawback of common cosmetic fillers is their relatively short duration of action. The aim of hand rejuvenation is to restore volume to plump the hand, hence giving it a youthful appearance. However, this is challenging due to the fact that the muscle and tendons of the hands are always moving, which hastens the degradation of filler products. Advantages of Radiesse for hand rejuvenation Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a calcium derivative that is normally found in the bones and teeth of humans. This attribute makes the material biocompatible and is therefore [Read more]
