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]
Radiesse vs Juvederm
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 injectables [Read more]

Chronic Migraine and Botox treatment
How does Botox help with migraines? Though Botox may be a household name due to its ability to diminish the appearance of wrinkles when used cosmetically, it is also a powerful treatment for a number of medical issues. Botox, which is also known as OnaboutlinumtoxinA, is made of the neurotoxin botulinum toxin type A, and has been used for decades in many medical treatments including for the treatment of cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, crossed eyes, and hyperhidrosis. Botulinum toxin type A causes temporary muscle paralysis by blocking the signals between the nerves of the injected muscle and the brain. But how exactly does Botox work to help treat migraines? When it comes to treating chronic migraines, doctors believe that the neurotransmitters blocked by the injections are those that signal pain, allowing patients to live pain-free after receiving Botox injections.

Woman receiving injection to contour jawline
Introduction Patients seeking rejuvenating procedures for their aging face often present with prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines, loss of volume to the lips, and changes along the jawline. Subtle changes along the jawline reveal advancing age. A patient’s appearance is significantly affected with the loss of definition of the mandibular border. There is a general perception that a well-contoured jawline is the hallmark of a youthful face. Aging is a natural phenomenon and the skin bears the first obvious signs of the passing of time. Gravitational forces, increased tissue laxity, and progressive bone resorption all play a role in the manifestations of facial aging. 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 procedur [Read more]
Orthovisc vs Synvisc: Knee osteoarthritis Treatment
Orthovisc and Synvisc as viscosupplements Viscosupplementation is a type of therapy that addresses the diminished amount of hyaluronic acid in synovial fluid by supplementing the (degraded) synovial fluid in the diseased joint with a hyaluronic acid product that possesses the rheological properties of healthy synovial fluid. These medications are normally offered as second-line therapies, which are medications and treatments that are used after the patient has not adequately responded to the primary treatments of a condition, which in this case are pain medication and physical therapy. Viscosupplement preparations differ significantly in their molecular weight, concentration, rheological properties, manufacturing processes, and residence times in the joint. The effects that viscosupplements confer is delayed but long-lasting. While it can sometimes take weeks or even several months for the full results of viscosupplements, including Orthovisc and Synvisc, to materialize [Read more]

You may be an expert at restoring youth and beauty, but these lifestyle questions can be difficult to address, even for seasoned cosmetic injectors. Sooner or later, one of your patients will ask if their favorite injectable is vegan-friendly, so learn what makes a product vegan and If Juvederm, Restylane, Botox, and other injections fit this category.
