Synvisc vs Synvisc One
To cater to an ever-expanding aging population, treatments to manage conditions that are prevalent in the elderly are increasing in number. Patients receiving these treatments should be knowledgeable about the different modalities and medications in order to determine the right treatment for their lifestyle and condition. Here, we compare Synvisc, a popular injection used in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, with its single-dosing-regimen, Synvisc One, in terms of their respective benefits and drawbacks. Osteoarthritis of the knee Patients who complain about joint stiffness, pain, and swelling may be suffering from a form of arthritis that affects the bone called osteoarthritis. With this condition, the damage inflicted by the wear and tear that affects weight-bearing joints, such as the knees, is accelerated due to the degradation of protective cartilage at the ends of the bones. These effects lead to the development of inflammation in joints and the subsequent dis [Read more]
Sculptra vs Radiesse Explained
Cosmetic injectables are administered to alter the appearance and structure of the skin and can be grouped into neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and fat-dissolving treatments. These types of treatments have been enjoying a rise in popularity in recent times, as they provide the same effects as surgical procedures but are much less invasive and lack the associated downtime and complications of said procedures. Sculptra and Radiesse are two dermal fillers that act as collagen biostimulators. This type of filler is not used to replace volume; rather, they are administered to encourage the body to produce more collagen at the treatment site. Sculptra and Radiesse are perhaps the best-known products in their category, so it is worthwhile to take an in-depth look at how these two dermal fillers compare with each other. Collage Biostimulators – How do they work?  Generally speaking, there are two types of dermal fillers: fillers that are implanted to provide volume replace [Read more]
Treating the Tear Trough: Quick Guide
Treating Tear Trough Deformities The tear trough is an important area when it comes to aging, as many concerns can arise in this area. For instance, the hollowing of the under-eye area due to volume and fat loss can lead to the appearance of perennial exhaustion in a patient’s face, even if they are well-rested. Because of this, optimal treatment of this area can greatly satisfy a patient, as it instantly gives them a refreshed, youthful look. However, treatment of this area requires intricate knowledge of the anatomy and dermal filler rheology in order to produce satisfactory results. First termed by Flowers in 1993, what is known as the tear trough deformity is a periorbital hollow that extends obliquely from the medial canthus to the mid-pupillary line. Skin depressions lateral to this feature are termed a palpebromalar groove, nasojugal groove, or lid-cheek junction. There are various classifications of tear trough deformities and its aetiology. For inst [Read more]
Radiesse for Chin Rejuvenation Treatment
If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your chin, you may want to consider changing its look with a dermal filler treatment. Read on to find out how chin enhancement (or mentum augmentation, medically speaking) can be attained with the use of Radiesse. How fillers can help create the ideal chin The chin, while itself an important aesthetic element, is also vital when considering a global approach to facial rejuvenation. Treating the chin usually entails increasing its projection in order to improve jawline definition and the side profile of the face. In addition, some female patients may benefit from a pointier chin in order to achieve the desired oval or V-shaped jaw. Mentum augmentation can also have positive benefits to other structures of the lower face, as it can diminish marionette lines and balance the face in accordance with Steiner’s line—which holds that in a well-balanced face, the lips should touch an imaginary line drawn from the contour of [Read more]
How Long Does Juvederm Voluma Last? Explained
The longevity of results is an important factor one must consider when choosing a dermal filler treatment.  Treatments that are long-lasting reduces the need for repeat treatments and drives down the cost of the procedure. Unfortunately, how long a dermal filler lasts is not an easy question to answer. There are many factors at play, both external and intrinsic to the product and patient, that will ultimately determine the outcome treatment. To illustrate this point, this article will take a look at the longevity of results of Juvederm Voluma, a volumizing filler. Dermal fillers in the treatment of age-related aesthetic concerns With age, undesirable aesthetic defects start to appear on the face; this can include the formation of lines, wrinkles, and sunken or hollow areas. These can be attributed largely to facial volume loss, where the depleting levels of skin, fat, and bone coupled with increased skin laxity results in the visible signs of aging. Dermal fillers are age [Read more]
Can You Exercise After Botox? What do professionals say
In recent times, cosmetic injections have become immensely popular. While they are touted as “lunchtime procedures” with no associated downtime, it is important to remember that there are precautions the patient should take to achieve optimal effects and minimize undesired events. Here, we look at one such recommendation usually given by doctors to patients who have undergone Botox injections in order to gain insight on how this may impact the clinical outcomes of said Botox treatment. How does Botox work as a cosmetic treatment? Dynamic wrinkles develop from repetitive muscle activity. Facial expressions like frowning or smiling, sometimes exacerbated by the loss of skin elasticity due to aging, can lead to furrows, lines, and wrinkles that do not go away. Common examples of these type of wrinkles include glabellar lines, which are also known as frown lines, and crow’s feet, which are lines around the eyes that come about from smiling. Botox works at [Read more]
Botox for Vaginismus Treatment Explained
Vaginismus is a type of genital pain syndrome closely associated with other conditions like dyspareunia and vestibulitis. Women with this condition suffer uncontrollable spasms in their vagina upon attempted entry of a penis, digit, or any object, which makes sexual intercourse painful or impossible. Symptoms of this condition include stinging or burning with tightness during intercourse; difficulty inserting tampons or undergoing a pelvic/gynecological exam; ongoing sexual discomfort or pain following childbirth, menopause, disease (yeast/urinary infections, STDs), surgery (e.g. hysterectomy, cancer); idiopathic ongoing sexual pain; spasms in other body muscle groups (legs, lower back, etc.); halted breathing during attempts at intercourse; and sex avoidance. These spasms originate from the muscles of the pelvic floor and the perineum that surround the outer third of the vagina. Vaginismus is primarily a condition caused by psychosomatic factors. Women can have primary ( [Read more]
Botox for Sweaty Hands: Treatment & Benefits
If you have cold, clammy hands that do not seem to improve no matter what you do, you may have a medical condition known as palmar hyperhidrosis. Individuals with this condition sweat excessively in the palms. Patients with palmar hyperhidrosis can be negatively impacted to a significant degree by their condition, experiencing difficulties in occupational and social situations. Previously, the traditional methods of treating hyperhidrosis were either ineffective—in the case of topical antiperspirants—or invasive—in the cases of the excision of the sweat glands, arthroscopic shaving of the glands, and endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy. Botox treatments are usually suggested after treatments like topical therapy and tap water iontophoresis have failed to produce satisfactory results. How does Botox help reduce excessive sweating of the palms? When Botox is injected intradermally, the toxin acts to chemically denervate the eccrine sweat glands within the treate [Read more]
