Your Skin Through the Seasons
The skin covers the entire body, making it our largest organ. Due to its exposure to the elements, it comes as no surprise that the skin is largely affected by the environment and its changes. Temperature and humidity changes necessitate adjusting skincare routines to maintain skin health, as many skin-related diseases and issues—such as  acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea—show seasonal variability.

Treating Lips
The look of a full and sulky lip has been desired by both genders for hundreds, if not thousands of years. They convey a sense of youth that is attractive and pleasing. The desire for luscious lips spares is one that is present in many cultures, both in the past and in the present. Indeed, even across the central steppes of Asia and the vast riches of the Middle East, the lips are regarded as the aesthetic center of the lower face.

How Do You Store Your Botox? You May Just be Doing it Wrong.
Botox and other botulinum toxins, or really all drugs, have storage conditions specified on their packaging. This is to ensure when you do use the product it is potent and safe, having the effect you expect. The problem is, things do not always go as planned. Maybe you mixed up a solution only to have a no-show patient. Maybe you stocked up a little too much for a volume discount. Maybe one of your busy nurses left a box on the counter or your refrigerator quit over the weekend. Maybe your courier left a box on your doorstep in a heat wave. In these situations, you may find yourself throwing away hundreds of dollars worth of botulinum toxin. What a huge waste! The good news is, research suggests the manufacturer's storage recommendations may be far too conservative. A few studies have looked into the effectiveness of different brands of botulinum toxins and found they are viable long past the times recommended by the manufacturers. Knowing this can save your clinic money, reducing pro [Read more]
Mesotherapy for Facial Skin Hydration
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]
