Dermal Fillers After Weight Loss
Many people who want to lose weight 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 of time [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]

Study Finds Best Filler for Chinese Patients Experienced doctors know that patients need tailored treatment plans. The best way to get the most effective treatment is to discuss a patient’s expectations and goals for receiving any kind of facial rejuvenation, so that a personalized treatment plan can be administered based on the patient’s age, skin type, the severity of the issues being treated, and many more factors. But, what if there is more to determining the best treatment for your patients? Finding the right filler While there is a distinct and obvious difference between the kinds of wrinkles and lines that are most effectively treated certain fillers, there is also a difference in effectiveness even amongst dermal filler products.

Botox for Incontinence
The loss of bladder control is a common condition, especially in women. This condition, which is also known as urinary incontinence or bladder leakage, can be caused by muscular factors—such as the weakening of the pelvic wall, a condition commonly seen after childbirth—or by neurological factors due to the uncontrolled contractions or spasm of the bladder wall. Botulinum toxin products, especially Botox, have been used in the treatment of incontinence caused by muscle hyperactivity for over a decade. In the United States, the FDA has granted approval for Botox to treat two types of bladder dysfunction: an overactive bladder, and detrusor overactivity associated with a neurologic condition. This article will delve deeper into the use of Botox for treating urinary incontinence in part by focusing how Botox works and how to administer the drug. What is botulinum toxin and how does it treat urinary incontinence? Botulinum toxin treatments are best known as a type o [Read more]
Juvederm fixed nasolabial folds on woman
What are nasolabial folds? Nasolabial folds, also referred to as “smile lines,” “parentheses lines,” or “laugh lines,” are the deep wrinkles or lines that extend from both sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. When a person smiles, nasolabial folds become more pronounced. The depth of nasolabial folds varies among individuals; however, as people age, the more pronounced and thicker the nasolabial folds become. In comparison, nasolabial folds are not present in newborns. This is due to the fact that the quantity of hyaluronic acid, a substance that gives skin its firmness and elasticity, decreases as people age. As the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, nasolabial folds become more prominent. Even though prominent nasolabial folds tend to occur in older individuals, people in their 20s may also notice them. Why choose Juvederm? Juvederm is a collection of injectable dermal fillers made from non-animal hyaluronic acid. It was app [Read more]

The duration of Sculptra’s effects has been studied extensively in the treatment of patients with HIV-related facial lipoatrophy. Based off the findings of multiple clinical trials, including the Vega study and the Blue Pacific study, among others, the duration of effect of Sculptra was seen to last up to 24 months, with increases in skin thickness and high patient satisfaction. Furthermore, the durable results of Sculptra can be further extended with retreatment. In one case study, the correction of HIV-associated facial lipoatrophy seen in a 45-year-old patient who underwent retreatment with Sculptra was maintained for two years and seven months. The duration of effect of Sculptra was examined further in a 2015 study that assessed the length of effect of Sculptra by using 3D imaging to quantitatively measure midface volume changes in 15 patients who received Sculptra treatment for aesthetic purposes over a one-year period. They found that treatment starts to take effect as ear [Read more]
Difference Between Botox and Dysport
Both Dysport and Botox contain Botulinum Toxin In 2009, a new competitor for Botox was approved for the US market, under the brand Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA). Like Botox, Dysport is a botulinum toxin treatment indicated for wrinkle correction as well as certain movement disorders like spasticity and cervical dystonia. However, these two botulinum neurotoxin preparations were manufactured and purified via distinct, proprietary manufacturing processes. As such, Dysport and Botox have different properties in terms of duration of results, diffusion, adverse event profile, and potency. Botox (onabotulinumtoxin a) is primarily known as a cosmetic injectable that treats wrinkles like glabellar lines; however, it has many more therapeutic uses. As a neurotoxin, it causes chemical denervation in cholinergic neurons, thus impacting signal transmission between these nerves to other cells. It is for this reason that Botox has many therapeutic applications. For instance, Botox is indicated in t [Read more]
Cosmetic Facial Injectables
What are Dermal Fillers for? Cosmetic facial injectables are a minimally-invasive, non-surgical, and effective treatment for wrinkle correction and facial rejuvenation. There are many factors that can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles and creases, including the wrinkles that appear around the eyes, cheeks, and lips, and nasolabial folds. Though age is a big contributing factor, as the body slows production on key nutrients that contribute to the health, hydration, and firmness of the skin, other factors such as sun exposure, pollution, or even illness can also cause the skin to appear aged. There are many filler brands and products available on the market that are made from a variety of materials, such as poly-L-lactic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, though hyaluronic acid is 1 of the most popular ingredients. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the skin that adds hydration and contributes to other cellular functions that keep the skin looking youthful. [Read more]
