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]
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]

Woman receiving injection to contour jawline
Introduction Patients seeking facial rejuvenation often present with prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines, loss of volume to the lips, and changes along the jawline. The patient’s appearance is significantly affected by the loss of definition along the mandibular border. A contoured jawline is often seen as indicative of a more youthful appearance. Aging is a natural phenomenon and gravitational forces, increased tissue laxity, and progressive bone resorption all play a role in the facial manifestations. Atrophy and resorption of the malar, submalar, and buccal fat pads lead to volume loss in the midface. With aging, the jawline’s shape becomes less aesthetically appealing. As a result, there has been a significant increase in the number of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures available to efficiently contour the jawline and restore lost facial volume. Patient Analysis Dr. Kate Goldie, an aesthetic practitioner, utilizes a full-face con [Read more]

Teosyal vs Juvederm: Similarities and Differences Reviewed
.div-additional-img-blog{text-align: center;} .responsive-img-blog{width: 100%;max-width: 700px;height: auto; padding-bottom:20px;} A meaningful comparison between injectable dermal fillers can be difficult to undertake. Although there are many injectable fillers on the market, many have very few or zero high-quality randomized controlled trials to support their use. This gives rise to a lack of guidance on both the efficacy and safety of these products. Fortunately, the brands of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that will be discussed in this article, Teosyal and Juvederm, are proven to be beneficial to patients. Differences Between Teosyal and Juvederm Teosyal is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler brand that is manufactured by Teoxane Laboratories. They offer two product lines - Classic and PureSense, the latter of which contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic agent that improves patient comfort, as well as Teosyal Global Action, Deep Lines, Kiss, and Ultra Deep.

Juvederm vs Radiesse For Marionette Lines: Effectiveness Comparison
How do dermal fillers treat marionette lines? As the body ages, it slows production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are essential to keeping the skin firm, elastic, and plump. As these substances degrade, the skin becomes weaker and begins to loosen and sag, causing lines and wrinkles to form.  Dermal fillers treat marionette lines by volumizing the skin, and some formulations boost essential proteins. The added volume from the implanted dermal filler gel lifts the skin, smooths lines and wrinkles, and adds a youthful plumpness to the skin that is often lost due to the process of aging and other harmful environmental factors. How long do results last?  Aside from the difference in ingredients, the biggest difference between Juvederm and Radiesse is the longevity of the effects of treatment. Juvederm offers longer lasting results than many other hyaluronic acid-based fillers currently available on the market. On average, the result [Read more]
