Radiesse for Under Eyes: Correct Signs of Aging
If your patients complain of “puffy”, pronounced eye bags, dark circles or of constantly appearing tired even if they are well-rested, they may benefit from filler treatments. How do dark circles and eye bags form? Some dark circles may appear from sleep deprivation and will improve with a good night’s rest. But constant dark circles below the eyes that will not go away may be a result of a tear trough deformity. This is when there are contour irregularities in the areas right beneath the eyes that cause or exacerbate shadowing in that area. Tear trough deformities can also result in the development of eye bags, which are the puffy areas in the lower eyelid. Tear trough deformities can be a result of genetics but can also be a product of aging. The descent of fat and skin due to the loss of facial volume and elasticity contributes to this condition, further exacerbating the situation. In these cases, filling the tear tough can help immensely. Radiess [Read more]
Radiesse for Hands: Procedure and Advantages
Aging negatively affects the hands aesthetically, causing the accentuation of the veins and crepe-like skin. These changes are due to the loss of volume, hydration, and elasticity, which makes this area a common source of concern. Traditional treatments were invasive and have always been limited in their scope and success rate, but this has changed with the advent of cosmetic fillers. However, one major drawback of common cosmetic fillers is their relatively short duration of action. The aim of hand rejuvenation is to restore volume to plump the hand, hence giving it a youthful appearance. However, this is challenging due to the fact that the muscle and tendons of the hands are always moving, which hastens the degradation of filler products. Advantages of Radiesse for hand rejuvenation Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a calcium derivative that is normally found in the bones and teeth of humans. This attribute makes the material biocompatible and is therefore [Read more]
Radiesse: Cheek Augmentation and the Liquid Facelift
Restoring volume to the midface region has a global effect on the face; in fact, midface rejuvenation is usually sufficient to give an overall younger appearance to the patient without the need for treating other areas. For this reason, midface augmentation is recommended first before other procedures like augmentation of the tear trough or nose, nasolabial folds correction, or filling the perioral region. Patients suitable for a Radiesse treatment in their cheek region are those with age-related concerns, like volume loss and the dropping of malar fat pads that leads to a drooping of the front of the cheek into adjacent areas. Younger patients with prominent nasojugal folds or deficiencies in the midface soft tissue or bony areas are also suitable for Radiesse treatments. This treatment helps the above conditions by volumizing the malar and submalar regions to reduce the shadowing effect that is associated with the above age-related concerns. Additionally, restoring v [Read more]
Using Radiesse for Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation procedures are among the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures practitioners can perform. Clients usually come with age-related concerns, such as thinning lips, vertical wrinkles above the upper lip (also known as “smoker’s lines” or “barcode lines”), flattening of the Cupid’s bow, and the loss of volume. This area is challenging to treat, as it is a highly mobile area, so any non-permanent filler will usually have a decreased duration of action in this area compared with other areas of the face. Typically, the approach used for lip enhancement involves invasive surgery and the use of synthetic or autologous materials for filler. The effects of these procedures are often very long-lasting, with corrections often remaining for up to five years. However, such procedures are costly, involve surgery, and are associated with severe complications, including scarring and asymmetry. Implants such as polytetrafluoroethy [Read more]
Botox for Scrotum
What is Scrotox? Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum that, when injected, acts at the site of treatment to block neuromuscular signalling, thereby preventing contractions of the muscle. Botox is known primarily for its role as a requisite therapy in fighting the signs of aging in the skin; however, its mechanism of action allows for many more uses, with many of these uses not widely known. In fact, there is an emerging trend where Botox is used for the aesthetic enhancement of male genitalia, specifically scrotal rejuvenation. Scrotal anatomy and muscles involved in scrotal movement The scrotum is located beneath the penis and consists of a dual-chambered sack of skin and smooth muscle. It houses the testes, external spermatic fascia, epididymis, and ductus deferens. Exteriorly, the skin of the scrotum is commonly wrinkled and defined by furrows and ridges. The dartos and cremaster muscles of the scrotum work to move the testicles for temperature r [Read more]
Radiesse vs Juvederm, Which Is The Best Anti-Aging Filler?
Choosing the right dermal filler for treatment can be a tough decision for both patient and practitioner alike. Doctors need to keep abreast of the ever-changing landscape of fillers, so as to best advise their patients to achieve their desired aesthetic goals. Beyond this, patients often prefer to do their own research before their treatment. To help with this, we take an in-depth look at two popular dermal fillers, Juvederm and Radiesse, to see how they compare to each other.  Why do doctors choose Juvederm? Juvederm is a popular line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. While used primarily as a wrinkle filler, this versatile family of treatment also contains formulations suitable for many other aesthetic indications, including lip augmentation, lifting the cheeks, and treating acne scars. Made of non-animal derived hyaluronic acid that has been chemically modified for stabilization, Juvederm’s products are non-immunogenic, biocompatible, and resorbable. These [Read more]
Repairing Split Earlobes and Enlarged Piercing Holes
The earlobe is an integral part of the face in an aesthetic sense. For instance, women have often adorned jewelry in this area, with ear piercings being one of the oldest types of body modifications. Unappealing physical characteristics of the earlobe, such as being too large or having an uneven shape, can become a cause of concern for patients. Additionally, earlobes can be damaged from wearing long, heavy jewelry, which can cause further resulting in undesired aesthetic conditions. Split earlobe Over time, patients who wear long or heavy jewelry, especially if suspended from a fine ring, will eventually find that the heavy weight pulling on their piercing stretches, elongates, and sometimes completely pulls through the piercing hole, resulting in a split earlobe. A split earlobe can be incomplete or complete, and different techniques should be used for repair based on the type of damage sustained by the earlobe. Enlarged ear-piercing hole The stretching of the ea [Read more]
What is Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure?
As the latest trend in cosmetic injectables, there is now significant demand in the use of Sculptra for nonsurgical butt lifts. Cosmetic contouring of the buttocks is usually performed for enhancement purposes, or in some cases, to correct post-surgical irregularities. Previously, the only options for contouring the buttocks were surgical, with patients receiving butt implants or Brazilian Butt Lifts (fat grafting procedures whereby fat cells are harvested and injected into the buttocks). Now, Sculptra provides patients with an alternative option. Generally, good candidates for this treatment include those with a low body mass index (and thus have no source of autologous fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift), or who do not wish to get silicone implants. What is Sculptra? Sculptra is a semi-permanent injectable filler made of poly-L-lactic acid with volumizing and collagen-boosting properties. It is a preparation consisting of microparticles of poly-L-lactic acid with sodium c [Read more]
