How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles with Dermal Filler and Botox
Correcting Forehead Wrinkles: Botox vs Dermal Fillers What are forehead wrinkles? Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal creases that occur on the forehead. They are also known as horizontal rows, worry lines, or expression lines. Forehead wrinkles appear when a person makes the same expression repeatedly. What causes them? There are a number of factors that may lead to forehead wrinkles. These include: Aging: With age, collagen synthesis is diminished and the elastin in the skin becomes weaker. This causes the skin to become less supple and firm, making forehead wrinkles more prominent. Exposure to UV rays: UV rays cause the generation of free radicals in the skin and interfere with the synthesis of collagen and elastin, causing the skin to lose it suppleness and firmness, which makes forehead wrinkles more prominent. Genetics: Young individuals can exhibit forehead wrinkles due to their genes. Repetitive facial expressions: Normal animation while talking, [Read more]
Treating Masseter Hypertrophy
Botulinum toxin type A is a neurotoxin that acts by inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at nerve terminals at the neuromuscular junction. As a result, local paralysis is induced, relaxing the muscle into which it is injected. Botulinum toxin also acts on parasympathetic postganglionic cholinergic fibres, making it an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis and hypersalivation. Preliminary studies on the effects of botulinum toxin on conditions like as myokymia, bruxism, and anal fissure have also produced promising results. While primarily known as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkle correction, other potential therapeutic uses for this toxin has emerged in recent times in conditions associated with excessive or dyssynergic muscle contraction, pain, and hypersecretion of glands. An interesting recent discovery uncovered another aspect of Botulinum toxin: it was also found to have pain-relieving effects, which suggests that botulinum toxin has [Read more]
How Long does Radiesse Last?
Clinical aesthetics has faced a paradigm shift in how it approaches treatment of the aging face. Where before, aesthetic practitioners tended towards a two-dimensional model of treatment in which fillers were viewed and treated in isolation, advances in our understanding of facial anatomy and how it is affected by the aging process has resulted in a trend towards facial rejuvenating techniques that involve volume and shape replenishment. With the focus now on using volume and shape to restore youthful proportions, balance, and symmetry, there has been a massive surge in the development and use of injectable dermal fillers for anti-aging treatment. Why do doctors use Radiesse? Characterizing dermal fillers can be done by roughly diving them into two classes, based on their mode of action: those for volume replacement (where the majority of hyaluronic acid-based fillers lie), or for collagen biostimulation. Based on this classification, fillers made of calcium hydroxylapatite (mar [Read more]
5 Reasons to stop using silicone injectables Today
Injectable silicone is a liquid substance that has been used for more than 5 decades as a permanent filler to treat wrinkles and augment various parts of the body, including the buttocks and lips. Injectable silicone is harmful, as it can block the blood vessels and can result in serious illness—or even death. They may be counterfeit, contaminated, or dangerous If you buy silicone on the Internet, it is most likely non-medical grade silicone (i.e. silicone that may have come from a hardware store) and is not sterile. Such silicone causes more health complications than medical grade silicone. In worst case scenarios, silicone bought on the Internet may actually be mineral oil, baby oil, tire sealant, and in certain cases, cement. Only licensed doctors can purchase silicone fillers or any other type of medical implant. They are particularly harmful when used by unlicensed professionals Reports of people hosting “pumping parties” where non-licensed d [Read more]
Dermal Fillers And Scars: Cost, Effects & Benefits Reviewed
Dermal fillers are cosmetic medical devices that assist with a number of skin imperfections, including facial scars. The most popular dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in the human body, including in the skin. Hyaluronic acid depletes as the skin ages, causing sagging and the formation of lines, wrinkles, and folds, particularly in the face. Once injected into the soft tissue, dermal fillers provide an instant volumizing effect, plumping up the skin and smoothing out depressed areas for fresher, more radiant looking skin. Dermal fillers work to fade the appearance of scar in the same way they help lines and wrinkles—they add volume to areas within the skin that are sunken, making the scar even with the surrounding skin and thereby making it less apparent. Can I get rid of my scars with dermal fillers? Just as dermal fillers can help treat a number of different cosmetic issues, they can also help with different t [Read more]

5 Types of Wrinkles and How to Prevention Them
There are a number of factors that contribute to the development of wrinkles. The most obvious factor is, of course, aging. As the body ages it slows down production of a lot of proteins and other substances that contribute to a strong support system within the skin. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which each contribute to the firmness, elasticity, and hydration of the skin becomes less ubiquitous. This leads to the skin becoming duller, looser, and sagging, ultimately leading to lines and wrinkles. While age is a huge factor in this, there are also things that can speed up the degradation of these important substances within the skin and making wrinkles appear prematurely, or worsening their appearance. Sun exposure, lack of water, poor diet habits, pollution, and lifestyle habits such as smoking, can also cause or exacerbate wrinkles. Types of wrinkles Though all wrinkles may appear the same, there are actually distinct types. Understanding the difference betwe [Read more]
