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 ...

Helping Patients Cope With Eczema

Eczema can be itchy and irritating to your patients' skin, as well as creating unsightly rashes and dry, scaly patches. Since it is so distracting and has a negative effect on your patients' beauty, eczema can be tough to live with. While dermatologists may not know the underlying cause of eczema, it can be triggered by irritants such as scratchy clothing, a detergent, or allergens.

Sometimes they get eczema on an area of skin that can be covered by clothing, but sometimes it appears on their hands or face where everyone can see it. There are a few things you can suggest to your patients to help them cope with their eczema breakouts, and once that is taken care of, you c ...

Building Up the Skin's Structure from the Inside Out

There are a few different ways to reduce wrinkles. Cosmetic surgeons can stretch the skin surgically, they can use wrinkle relaxing injections to relax the muscles beneath the skin, or they can use fillers such as hyaluronic acid to add volume to the skin, which stretches out the wrinkles. However, other types of dermal fillers can restore mature skin, rebuilding the skin's structure from the inside out. One such dermal filler is RADIESSE®. While most of the injections in a cosmetic clinic involve either botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid, RADIESSE® is different. Instead of temporarily adding volume to the skin like a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, RADIESSE® builds up the skin's structure gradually over the course of a year or two. This gives RADIESSE® a couple of advantages over other wrinkle-fighting products. First, your patients will be able to enjoy their smooth skin for longer since RADIESSE® lasts longer than fillers made of hyaluronic acid or wrinkle relax ...
