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]
Radiesse for Under Eyes: Correct Signs of Aging
If your patients complain of “puffy”, pronounced eye bags, dark circles or of constantly appearing tired even if they are well-rested, they may benefit from filler treatments. How do dark circles and eye bags form? Some dark circles may appear from sleep deprivation and will improve with a good night’s rest. But constant dark circles below the eyes that will not go away may be a result of a tear trough deformity. This is when there are contour irregularities in the areas right beneath the eyes that cause or exacerbate shadowing in that area. Tear trough deformities can also result in the development of eye bags, which are the puffy areas in the lower eyelid. Tear trough deformities can be a result of genetics but can also be a product of aging. The descent of fat and skin due to the loss of facial volume and elasticity contributes to this condition, further exacerbating the situation. In these cases, filling the tear tough can help immensely. Radiess [Read more]
Radiesse for Hands: Procedure and Advantages
Aging negatively affects the hands aesthetically, causing the accentuation of the veins and crepe-like skin. These changes are due to the loss of volume, hydration, and elasticity, which makes this area a common source of concern. Traditional treatments were invasive and have always been limited in their scope and success rate, but this has changed with the advent of cosmetic fillers. However, one major drawback of common cosmetic fillers is their relatively short duration of action. The aim of hand rejuvenation is to restore volume to plump the hand, hence giving it a youthful appearance. However, this is challenging due to the fact that the muscle and tendons of the hands are always moving, which hastens the degradation of filler products. Advantages of Radiesse for hand rejuvenation Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a calcium derivative that is normally found in the bones and teeth of humans. This attribute makes the material biocompatible and is therefore [Read more]
Radiesse: Cheek Augmentation and the Liquid Facelift
Restoring volume to the midface region has a global effect on the face; in fact, midface rejuvenation is usually sufficient to give an overall younger appearance to the patient without the need for treating other areas. For this reason, midface augmentation is recommended first before other procedures like augmentation of the tear trough or nose, nasolabial folds correction, or filling the perioral region. Patients suitable for a Radiesse treatment in their cheek region are those with age-related concerns, like volume loss and the dropping of malar fat pads that leads to a drooping of the front of the cheek into adjacent areas. Younger patients with prominent nasojugal folds or deficiencies in the midface soft tissue or bony areas are also suitable for Radiesse treatments. This treatment helps the above conditions by volumizing the malar and submalar regions to reduce the shadowing effect that is associated with the above age-related concerns. Additionally, restoring v [Read more]
What does Botox feel like when it starts to work
Will I feel Botox Work Once It’s Injected?Many patients undergoing Botox treatment for the first time will have questions and concerns regarding the procedure. This post aims to help put their minds at ease by providing a step-by-step guide on warning signs to watch out for and what to expect after a Botox treatment. What is Botox used for? Botox is used in many medical situations. Due to its unique and useful mechanism of action, where it causes a local paralysis in striated tissue, Botox is extremely versatile and can be used to treat many movement and pain disorders, including chronic migraines, certain types of spasticity, and cervical dystonia. Botox is also used to treat some bladder symptoms, such as urinary incontinence, and symptoms of excessive underarm sweating, which is known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis. For the purposes of brevity, however, this article will discuss the patient experience in the context of using Botox for cosmetic treatmen [Read more]
Using Radiesse for Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation procedures are among the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures practitioners can perform. Clients usually come with age-related concerns, such as thinning lips, vertical wrinkles above the upper lip (also known as “smoker’s lines” or “barcode lines”), flattening of the Cupid’s bow, and the loss of volume. This area is challenging to treat, as it is a highly mobile area, so any non-permanent filler will usually have a decreased duration of action in this area compared with other areas of the face. Typically, the approach used for lip enhancement involves invasive surgery and the use of synthetic or autologous materials for filler. The effects of these procedures are often very long-lasting, with corrections often remaining for up to five years. However, such procedures are costly, involve surgery, and are associated with severe complications, including scarring and asymmetry. Implants such as polytetrafluoroethy [Read more]
Botox for Scrotum
What is Scrotox? Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum that, when injected, acts at the site of treatment to block neuromuscular signalling, thereby preventing contractions of the muscle. Botox is known primarily for its role as a requisite therapy in fighting the signs of aging in the skin; however, its mechanism of action allows for many more uses, with many of these uses not widely known. In fact, there is an emerging trend where Botox is used for the aesthetic enhancement of male genitalia, specifically scrotal rejuvenation. Scrotal anatomy and muscles involved in scrotal movement The scrotum is located beneath the penis and consists of a dual-chambered sack of skin and smooth muscle. It houses the testes, external spermatic fascia, epididymis, and ductus deferens. Exteriorly, the skin of the scrotum is commonly wrinkled and defined by furrows and ridges. The dartos and cremaster muscles of the scrotum work to move the testicles for temperature r [Read more]
Radiesse vs Juvederm, Which Is The Best Anti-Aging Filler? Compared
Choosing the right dermal filler for treatment can be a tough decision for both patient and practitioner alike. Doctors need to keep abreast of the ever-changing landscape of fillers, so as to best advise their patients to achieve their desired aesthetic goals. Beyond this, patients often prefer to do their own research before their treatment. To help with this, we take an in-depth look at two popular dermal fillers, Juvederm and Radiesse, to see how they compare to each other.  Why do doctors choose Juvederm? Juvederm is a popular line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. While used primarily as a wrinkle filler, this versatile family of treatment also contains formulations suitable for many other aesthetic indications, including lip augmentation, lifting the cheeks, and treating acne scars. Made of non-animal derived hyaluronic acid that has been chemically modified for stabilization, Juvederm’s products are non-immunogenic, biocompatible, and resorbable. These [Read more]
