Cute pig wondering if dermal fillers are vegan.
As the popularity of the vegan lifestyle and of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments grows, it can only lead to one thing: more patient inquiries regarding vegan-friendly cosmetic injections. While you may be an expert at restoring youth and beauty, these lifestyle questions can be difficult to address. Read on to find out whether top brand names like Juvederm, Restylane, Botox, and more fit the bill. What makes a product vegan? Two main factors determine if a product is vegan: its ingredients and its testing. Ingredients For a product to be considered vegan, it must contain no animal products and no ingredients derived from animals. A vegan individual does not consume meat, eggs, dairy or other products obtained from animals and also does not wear leather, fur or wool.

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]
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]
Woman receiving a mesotherapy treatment
It goes without saying that good skin dramatically improves the aesthetic appearance of any individual. Not only that, the appearance of the skin also influences the results of aesthetic dermal treatments like dermal fillers or botulinum toxin injections: if the condition of the skin is good, results of these treatments are further enhanced. For these reasons, improving skin condition should be a top priority and always be the first recommendation given to patients before deciding to implement other treatments. Mesotherapy was first introduced by the French doctor Michel Pistor, who in 1976 described a technique that entails administering medications directly into the skin. This is performed to preserve or achieve youthful and/or healthy skin. To achieve such skin, biocompatible and absorbable medications that brighten, firm, and moisturize the skin are injected into the superficial dermis. This procedure also assists in encouraging skin rejuvenation through fibroblast activation and [Read more]
