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]
Doctors Grow Full-Sized Human Ear
A team of doctors led by a physician at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston were able to grow an artificial ear a bit earlier this year. The doctors involved in the laboratory work used structural tissue and cells from animals to "create" the full-sized ear. When completed, the ear looked and felt real, just as if it were a normal human ear that developed naturally prior to and at birth. Importantly, the doctors involved in the development of the artificial ear were able to say that it distorted only minimally during regular growth because of the incorporation of a thin wire frame that was used to help the ear retain its shape under all conditions. When asked about their remarkable achievement, the doctors who were involved in the development of the artificial ear said they hoped that in the not-too-distant future they, or other doctors, would be able to apply the very same techniques to create an artificial ear using human tissue and cells. What is interesting and [Read more]
Chin Surgeries Are On The Rise
Statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that chin augmentation surgery is one of the fastest growing plastic or cosmetic surgery treatments in the United States among all major demographics. That means, of course, that this special type of surgery is extremely popular with all racial groups, all ethnic groups, both sexes and people of all ages. In fact, in the recent past chin augmentation surgery grew more than breast augmentation, BOTOX® injections and liposuction combined. That impressive showing occurred as recently as 2011, just about two years ago. The popularity of this relatively new procedure seems to be rooted in the fact that aging baby boomers, after looking in the mirror, develop an urgent need to restore a youthful appearance for themselves. It is, for these older Americans, probably part vanity and, perhaps more importantly, a desire to recapture and hold on to fading youth. And, while chin augmentation has clearly capture [Read more]
Implants Can Hinder Breast Cancer Survival
A new, but small, study has reached a conclusion that cosmetic breast implants may hinder survival in women who contract breast cancer later in life. It's a shocking discovery because many women, especially young women, opt to get breast augmentation, strictly for cosmetic purposes and that, if this study is correct, can lead to life threatening concerns if breast cancer ever strikes. The study was published in the journal BMW. Researchers conducting the study followed twelve women very closely over a period of time and determined that breast implants, as noted above, can hinder breast cancer survival. The reason for the problem caused by implants is surprisingly simple. According to the medical professionals that did the research, breast implants make it much more difficult to detect breast cancer at an early stage because the implants produce shadows on mammograms. Unfortunately for women who have had implant surgery and then get breast cancer, it needs to be detected early to in [Read more]
