Finding an Alternative to a Dermal Filler

When it comes to cosmetic treatments, everyone has their preferences. This goes both for doctors like you and your patients. The most common wrinkle-fighting products are usually either botulinum toxin-based wrinkle relaxing injections or dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. Each has their advantages and each has their treatment type that they work best for, but there are other products out there that can give similar wrinkle-reducing results but in a different way. One such product is SCULPTRA®, made by Sanofi Aventis. Unlike products like RESTYLANE® and JUVÉDERM®, which are made with hyaluronic acid, SCULPTRA® is made from poly-L-lactic acid microspheres. Sometimes SCULPTRA® is grouped in with dermal fillers, but it actually fights wrinkles in a different way. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid instantly plump up your patient's skin when you inject them, smoothing out the wrinkles that way.

Capitalizing on the Growing Facial Injectable Market

In fact, in North America alone the facial injectable market is expected to grow to over $1.7 billion by the year 2017, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

This means that those in the business of providing medical products and services will be in demand in the foreseeable future. This includes you.

Using Cosmetic Treatments to Succeed in Business

The business world can be competitive, both when getting a job and when trying to land that big client for the firm. What people say and how they say it matters in the business world, but so does appearance. Most hiring managers would not want to admit it, but they would rather hire a young go-getter than an aging candidate. The older jobseeker may be out of touch with trends or may be prone to age-related illness, or so goes the stereotype. Even if this is not true, first impressions are everything, and if the jobseekers look old, they are automatically at a disadvantage. The same is true of clients, who may judge a prospective account manager by their appearance. To combat this unspoken age discrimination, many men and women are trying to get ahead in business by looking younger. When the smart suit and the slick hairdo are not enough, many turn to cosmetic treatments to gain an advantage. Since fine lines and wrinkles can betray their age, many patients opt for dermal fill ...
