How to Help Patients Get Rid of Acne Scars
Acne is a rite of passage for teenagers. Some get it worse than others, but we all go through it with anything from a pimple here and there to a face absolutely covered in red bumps. Most people are happy to leave their acne days behind them as they get older. However, some people are left with permanent acne scars to remind them of the troubled skin of their teens. This can mar their natural beauty, giving them skin imperfections that just cannot be covered with makeup. Your patients may think there is no hope, but you can help them. There are a few different types of acne scars, but dermal fillers like RESTYLANE® TOUCH can treat many acne scars, smoothing out the skin to a soft-textured, smooth surface. If your patient has atrophic acne scars, which are depressions in their skin, then you can inject a dermal filler into the skin to fill and raise the area, much as you would when treating wrinkles. Much like with a wrinkle, when you inject RESTYLANE® TOUCH, the hyaluronic [Read more]
Aging Population Fuels Demand for Osteoarthritis Injections
Osteoarthritis is an inevitable consequence of aging for most people. In fact, researchers estimate that half of your patients will develop osteoarthritis of the knee by the time they reach the age of 85. Currently, over 50 million people in the U.S. alone have been diagnosed with arthritis, making arthritis treatments a significant and important part of healthcare. However, the number of arthritis patients is expected to increase in coming years. By the year 2030, experts estimate that over 67 million Americans will be diagnosed with arthritis, and this number could grow even more beyond that date. So what is fueling this increase in osteoarthritis diagnosis? One factor is the aging population. Although osteoarthritis is not limited to older patients, many people do develop osteoarthritis as they age. The "baby boomer" population is the largest demographic group in North America, and this population is reaching and passing retirement age. As this large group ages, there wil [Read more]
How to Resculpt a Face Without Plastic Surgery
Some patients want to make minor cosmetic improvements to their bodies. Others want to go to the extreme, totally changing their face to look like their favorite celebrity or even a Barbie doll. Somewhere in between you have patients that would like to make moderate changes to their face, maybe a nose of a different shape or apple cheeks or a more sculpted jawline. Depending on exactly what changes your patients want to make, they may not have to resort to plastic surgery to get the look they want. You can shape and sculpt your patients' features using special dermal fillers. One such sculpting dermal filler is TEOSYAL® ULTRA DEEP. Swiss pharmaceutical company Teoxane developed an entire line of dermal fillers instead of just one general filler, each with a specific purpose. TEOSYAL® ULTRA DEEP is their densest formula, made with non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, and created to tackle the deepest and most voluminous areas of your patients' faces. You can inject TEOSYAL [Read more]
Refreshing Your Patient's Appearance
Most dermal fillers help to correct wrinkles, hollows or other major skin flaws. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid also have the added benefit of refreshing your patient's skin, leaving it not only smoother but also more hydrated with a healthy glow. People working in the skincare industry started to wonder if they could give the same hydrated and refreshing benefits of a dermal filler without adding unnecessary volume to their patients' skin. JUVÉDERM® responded to this need by creating a lighter version of its dermal fillers, a skinbooster called JUVÉDERM® HYDRATE™. You may be wondering what is the difference between a skinbooster and a regular dermal filler? JUVÉDERM® HYDRATE™ and the other JUVÉDERM® products are all made from the same main ingredient, hyaluronic acid. However, the JUVÉDERM® HYDRATE™ particles are smaller, allowing it to spread evenly and thinly within your patients' skin. This means that you can use JUVÉDERM® HYDRATE™ to give ref [Read more]
Bigger Lips are a Growing Trend
Lip augmentation is a growing trend, and it is no surprise. Many women want plumper, sexier lips beyond what lipstick or lip gloss can achieve. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, lip augmentation procedures grew in the US from over 18,000 in the year 2000 to over 25,000 in 2012. That's an increase of 35 percent, with a total spend just in 2009, for example, of over $37 million. There are a few things driving this lip augmentation trend. One is the prominence of celebrities that have plumped up their own lips, with many fans wanting to follow suit. Another is the simplicity of lip augmentation procedures these days. Originally, lip augmentation involved injecting fat or collagen into a patient's lips to achieve the full lip effect. However, collagen injections did cause some allergic reactions, and patients had to often wait for the results of an allergy test to come back before finally moving forward with their lip procedure. These injections have largely [Read more]
Avoiding The Hidden Danger of Osteoarthritis Injections
When your patients suffer from osteoarthritis, their joints are stiff and painful. Even if they are not totally confined to their house yet, the osteoarthritis pain can keep your patients from enjoying their favorite sports and other activities. Hyaluronic acid injections can be a great way to help your patients feel better and regain their mobility without resorting to knee surgery or medications. However, there is a hidden danger for some of your patients. Most of the hyaluronic acid injectables on the market for treating osteoarthritis come from a somewhat surprising source. Products like HYALGAN® and SYNVISC® are made from hyaluronic acid that is derived from rooster combs, that red appendage you see on top of a rooster's head. For most people, this does not pose a problem. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is normally found within human joint fluid, so most people do not have an allergic reaction or other severe side effects after their hyaluronic acid injecti [Read more]
Don't Forget, Men Care About Their Looks Too
Sometimes when you run a MedSpa you focus on your typical client. The stereotypical cosmetic procedure client is a woman around middle-age who comes in for anti-aging treatments. When you prepare your marketing materials to bring in new clients, the typical client comes to mind, and that is the demographic you target. You may target the stereotypical MedSpa client directly by selecting where to advertise your business, or you may target the stereotypical MedSpa client indirectly by focusing on procedures and using imagery that appeals to that target group. While this can be an effective way to bring in more middle-aged women, you may be unintentionally driving away other potential business. One often overlooked group is men, who may be intimidated by your MedSpa's focus on serving women. Traditionally, cosmetic treatments were mainly for women, but much has changed in recent years. More and more men are coming into MedSpas to improve their looks, often hoping to reduce the app [Read more]
Trying Out a Different Brand of Dermal Filler
We human beings are creatures of habit. Most of us will stick with what we know, and when it comes to cosmetic treatments, that often means sticking with the products that were first on the market or the most well known. For dermal fillers, doctors and patients often stick to the major brands, RESTYLANE® and JUVÉDERM®, without giving other facial fillers a try. Sometimes that means missing out on products that may have advantages for your patient. BELOTERO® is a prime example. Made by Merz, this dermal filler is gaining in popularity with many cosmetic surgeons and patients. BELOTERO BALANCE® takes on the same challenges as RESTYLANE® and JUVÉDERM®, the moderate lines and wrinkles and the minor facial hollows. However, some doctors and their patients that have tried BELOTERO BALANCE® claim it does a much better job than the other dermal fillers. One advantage of BELOTERO® is its thin, smooth consistency. Merz's patented Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) techno [Read more]
