A woman having a skin peel applied to her face
When talking about chemical peeling, it is important to recognize that these peels actually induce controlled chemical damage onto the skin. By using what is usually an acidic solution, chemical peels remove the epidermis and dermis, so that they can undergo regeneration from nearby adnexal structures, which ultimately results in the improvement of skin color, texture, and other concerns. Depending on the strength of the solution, the level of dermal collagen affected will either be superficial, medium, or deep. This article will focus on the peeling agents available and how they are capable of restoring epidermal structures. The indications of the different solutions will also be elaborated. Popularity of skin peels The Plastic Surgery Statistics Report in 2017 that was prepared by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed that there were close to 1.4 million individuals who opted for chemical peeling, which is a significant increase over the 1.15 million individ [Read more]
Orthovisc vs Supartz: Treatment, Concentation & Composition
Viscosupplements are medication that are administered to provide cushioning and lubrication to the affected knee joint. Usually given after the standard therapies have failed to produce adequate relief of arthritic symptoms, these intraarticular injections have been shown to be safe treatments that can assist in the management of this often painful, debilitating disease. This article will take a closer look at two viscosupplements, Supartz and Orthovisc, and see how they compare to each other. How do Orthovisc and Supartz help patients with knee osteoarthritis? In healthy individuals, joint spaces are filled with synovial fluid, a viscous fluid with an egg white-like consistency. Synovial fluid reduces friction between adjacent cartilage tissues during joint movement; thus, minimizing damage from wear and tear. However, aging impacts the rheological properties of synovial fluid, reducing in elasticity, viscosity, and rigidity as the patient grows older. In some cases, these changes a [Read more]
Botox for Sweating Face
Patients with facial hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating of the face, are often embarrassed by their condition. For these patients, social and occupational situations can cause great anxiety and hamper their lifestyle. Many of the standard modalities used to treat hyperhidrosis may offer only limited success, as is the case with many topical antiperspirants, such as endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy or tap water iontophoresis, which are not applicable for use in the facial area. Fortunately for these patients, Botox may be a viable treatment option. In this article, the role of Botox in the management of facial hyperhidrosis will be discussed. Facial hyperhidrosis, and how Botox treats it Facial hyperhidrosis is a type of focal hyperhidrosis, a condition where sweat is produced to an amount that exceeds physiological needs. In general, facial hyperhidrosis is bilateral and primarily affects the forehead. In some cases, other facial regions—such as the scalp, temples [Read more]

Crespine Gel Composition, Ingredients, Dosage & Summary
What is Crespine Gel Plus? Crespine Gel Plus is a medicine that is given to people who have a form of arthritis called osteoarthritis. People with this disease have joint pain and inflammation that makes it hard for them to move about. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage covering the ends of bones wear out, causing the bones end to come into contact with each other. As they rub against each other, inflammation can occur, causing symptoms like pain, stiffness, and swelling. Crespine Gel Plus is a viscosupplement. These are medicines injected directly into the affected knee to help with the pain and swelling that come with osteoarthritis. In normal healthy knee joints, there is normally a thick liquid called synovial fluid that coats the ends of the bones and helps to reduce the impact created by activities like walking, running, and jumping, much like shock absorbers in a car. In people with knee osteoarthritis, this thick, gel-like fluid changes for the worse by [Read more]

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.
