BOTOX® Remains the Most Popular Injection
When most people think of cosmetic injections they think of BOTOX®. In fact, many people even call all cosmetic injections BOTOX®, even though dermal fillers are totally different products than the wrinkle-relaxing injectables like BOTOX®. BOTOX® is the best-known of any cosmetic injection brand and has even become a household name since its FDA approval for cosmetic uses in 2002. Since BOTOX® was the first approved cosmetic treatment of its kind, it has remained the most popular choice for cosmetic injections. Trends are always changing, especially when it comes to fashion and beauty, and cosmetic treatments are not immune. There was a time when surgical facelifts were the treatment of choice for women with wrinkles, but these have since largely been replaced with a wide variety of cosmetic injections, from wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® to dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and RESTYLANE®. Breast augmentation has remained the most popular cosmetic enhancement in recent year [Read more]
How to Give the Quickest and Easiest Osteoarthritis Relief
Retirees these days just are not what they used to be. Back in our grandparents' day, when older people developed osteoarthritis they were relegated to the rocking chair. They would sit at home all day, trying their best to stay off their sore knees and avoid aggravating their osteoarthritis symptoms. These days, this is not the lifestyle that many grandparents want. They want to stay active, walking the dog, playing with the grandkids and getting out shopping, and they do not want their osteoarthritis to keep them cooped up inside. Some may use pain relievers or anti-inflammatories to relieve their symptoms, but others prefer not to add even more medication to their daily regimen. To avoid arthritis medications, many patients opt for a different option, hyaluronic acid injections. Injections of SYNVISC® or other similar products can help lubricate and cushion your patient's knee or other joint. Instead of their bones rubbing together painfully as they walk, your patient eff [Read more]
Facial Peels Offer Anti-Aging Benefits for the Needle-Wary
Some women will go to any extreme to look younger. They are your faithful clients who come in every few months for a BOTOX® injection or a dermal filler touch-up injection. However, some women are a little more wary about getting any cosmetic treatment. They are the type that shudder at the thought of getting a needle anywhere near their face. As much as they would love to get rid of their crow's feet and other fine lines, they absolutely refuse to consider injections to smooth their skin texture. So are the people who hate the thought of needles lost to you? Not at all! If your clinic has been focusing just on wrinkle relaxer and dermal filler injections, it's time to expand your offering to attract a wider clientele. When you offer less-invasive cosmetic treatments such as facial peels, you can still help your patients get more radiant skin with less visible fine lines and wrinkles. With a peel such as THE PERFECT PEEL, you can assure your clients that the experience will [Read more]
How to Treat Even the Deepest Wrinkle
Some cases you see every day in your medical spa are easy. Women may come in when they start to see wrinkles forming on their face, so you give them a little BOTOX® here, a little JUVÉDERM® there, and abra cadabra, those lines and wrinkles fade away. However, some of your patients may pose more of a challenge. These are the older women or the women that spent way too many hours tanning when they were younger. Their faces are creased with deep wrinkles and facial lines. They want to get your help to look younger again, but they wonder if their skin damage is beyond repair. You may start to wonder the same thing yourself as you look at their wrinkled, damaged skin that makes them look old beyond their years. If you start to wonder if your regular dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are up to the task, take a step back and look at your options. In the most severe cases, regular dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxers just will not do. While dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® or REST [Read more]
Treating Your Patient's Forgotten Wrinkles
Your patients look in the mirror every day and focus on those crow's feet and other facial wrinkles they would like to get rid of. You can help them, of course, when they come into your aesthetic clinic for dermal filler or wrinkle relaxing injections. However, when they leave your clinic with their smoother, younger-looking face, they may not realize that their beauty secret is about to betrayed. It's not their best friend spreading beauty gossip, it's their own body. Your patient's younger-looking face may be in sharp contrast to its neighbor, a wrinkled neck. The neck is often neglected in beauty routines throughout your patient's life. Your patient is careful to put moisturizer on their face every night and morning, and sunscreen on their face when they go out in the sun. However, most people miss giving their neck any attention at all. Their neck gets just as exposed to the sun and other environmental damage, and the skin is just as sensitive as the skin of the face.

How to Offer Cosmetic Treatments for Less
While your potential customers might dream of making cosmetic improvements to their appearance, the unfortunate truth is that they may not be able to afford cosmetic treatments. Some of them may be saving for months, bit by bit, to get the cosmetic treatments they dream of for a special occasion. Even your more affluent clients may have a mortgage, car payments, and private school fees to pay for. To your budget-conscious customers, every dollar counts, and cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers may seem out of reach. Every once in a while you even hear horror stories of how things went horribly wrong when someone tried to save money on a cosmetic improvement. There are stories about people dying after injecting themselves with substances like petroleum jelly or falling ill after getting cosmetic treatments with counterfeit products. There really is no need for people to put their health at risk like this just to save a bit of money on their appearance. There are a few thin [Read more]
Sea Urchins Can Help Make You Look Young
Sea urchins and sea cucumbers have the unusual and remarkable ability to change the elasticity of collagen in their bodies and, as a result, these underwater creatures may hold the key to maintaining a youthful appearance in human beings. The conclusion, which may sound a bit odd, comes from a study that was conducted by medical researchers and scientists at Queen Mary University of London. The team behind the study investigated the genes of sea urchins and sea cucumbers and found the results indicated above -- these creatures have the ability to alter the elasticity of the collagen that exists in their bodies. The researchers studied thousands of the underwater creatures and were able to determine that their genes were actually able to soften or, in some cases, harden, their collagen. According to the lead researcher, "it's an incredibly important and valuable discovery." It is also very exciting according to the medical professionals because, even though sea urchins and s [Read more]
The Truth About Global Medical Tourism
A team of British researchers has been issuing public warnings to governments and health care organizations all over the world to avoid falling for the hype that seems to surround the idea of medical tourism. The compelling lure or promise of extremely lucrative markets and significant global marketing opportunities builds a kind of aura around medical tourism and often makes it very hard to resist. The medical professionals who conducted the research in the United Kingdom (UK) have stepped forward to directly challenge the view -- or the belief -- that there are rapidly growing numbers of people worldwide that are now ready to travel great distances across national borders and even vast oceans to get much needed medical treatment for a broad variety of health or cosmetic reasons. The researchers claim that the perceived markets of vast numbers of medical tourists simply don't exist, that in fact, there are relatively few people with the financial means and the desire to becom [Read more]
