Amalian vs Juvederm: Similarities and Differences Explained
If you have heard of Amalian fillers, you may have wondered how they compare to a more popular brand like Juvederm. Here, we take an in-depth look at this German brand of implantable gels and see how they fare against the Juvederm range. The products that make up the Amalian and Juvederm range are aesthetic treatments known as dermal fillers, which are gels that are injected into the skin to add volume to the skin in order to plump and firm it This volumization helps to counteract signs of skin aging such as wrinkles and volume loss. On average, these fillers provide results that are able to last anywhere between six months up to over a year. Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation known as cosmetic injectables. Other anti-wrinkle treatments like neurotoxins (e.g. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) also belong to this group. Cosmetic injectables have become one of the most common aesthetic procedures carried out in doctors’ offices and is often offere [Read more]
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. Fortunately, there are plenty of skincare products that differ in terms of moisture content, thickness, and strength, which means there are plenty of products to meet the skin’s needs. It is important to consider seasonal changes when planning clinical treatments as well. Understanding the structure and function of skin The skin can be divided into two main layers: the epidermis and dermis. The uppermost layer is the epidermis, which is composed of tightly packed epithelial cells. It is essentially the barrier that keeps out harmful substances such as bacteria, to [Read more]
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. To many females in particular, they are a major sign for beauty. For many patients today, the lips are a prime aesthetic concern, especially for patients that have severe signs of aging such as a decrease in lip volume, perioral wrinkles, smoker’s lines, and downturned corners. However, many patients share a common negative perception about surgical procedures, including ones aimed at the lips, as the complications of such procedures have often been devastating and/or even permanent. Fortunately, the days of exceptionally poor results from [Read more]
Contouring the Male Body
For centuries, the ideal male body has been depicted as an athletic, lean, and muscular figure; this is seen in many historic art pieces, such as Greek sculptures. Today, many actors are considered body icons and are sprawled across the front pages of magazines globally. Research has found that the ideal male body shape is characterized by lean and well-defined muscle mass, and it is often a body type that many women prefer as well. This body type is considered a physical manifestation of traits such as discipline, dominance, resilience, attractiveness, and sexual experience. It is possible to achieve this ideal physique by committing to regular exercise and a healthy diet, but some men do not have the time or inclination to spend hours at the gym. Physique also changes as men age, and it is difficult to get rid of the fat that may appear. Additionally, each man has his own goal of how his body should look, and the so-called ideal body is not necessarily everyone’s preference. A [Read more]
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]
Treating Scars Part II
Injury implies that there is a need to restore a specific area and its structural integrity to normal function. It is an urgent need because mechanical integrity and the barriers are required to prevent any fluid loss or, even worse, severe infection. To reorganize the injured structure so that blood and lymphatic inflow and outflow is prevented is known as wound healing. Flawless repair is neither possible nor practical in the adult body, because of the aforementioned urgency. However, that is not to say that the other end of the spectrum does not exist. Regeneration is the term given to perfect and flawless repair without any scar formation, but it is only possible during the embryonic stage, and in certain tissues, such as the bone and liver. Unfortunately, the technology available today is unable to utilize this knowledge and put it into practical use. Interestingly, all wounds experience the same repair mechanisms. Acute wounds are repaired in an orderly and timely man [Read more]
Understanding Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Cosmetic injectables, like dermal fillers, have become increasingly popular in recent years. Hyaluronic acid, in particular, is the most commonly used dermal filler, accounting for more than 92% of all dermal fillers in the United States in 2015. In this article, various aspects of hyaluronic acid fillers will be discussed, including regulation, physical characteristics and uses, and a quick primer on other commonly used FDA-approved classes of dermal fillers. Regulation The most common issue with dermal fillers is actually a lack of regulation; in 2013, a report by the Department of Health (DOH) termed this as a “crisis waiting to happen.” In the United Kingdom, dermal fillers are classified as a medical device rather than a drug, meaning that dermal fillers can be used cosmetically without being subject to the EU General Product Safety Directive, Care Quality Commission (CQC), or CE standards. Given this, practitioners usually turn to guidelines established [Read more]
