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]
How to Make Botox Last Longer?
Can I Make the Results of Botox Last Longer? If you are one of many thinking of getting Botox for their facial wrinkles, you may be wondering about the durability of results. After all, repeat treatments are costly and, in the long run, they may make Botox prohibitively expensive. In light of this, many patients would want to know if there is a way to extend the benefits they receive from Botox injections. Popularity of Botox As alluded to above, using Botox for cosmetic use is now as commonplace as any other aesthetic treatment, such as chemical peels or laser treatments. In 2017, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that of the 15.7 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2017 in the United States, Botox constituted nearly half of them at 7.23 million procedures—an increase of 2% from the previous year. By far, Botox is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. The next popular procedure, soft tissue fillers, are a [Read more]
Repairing Split Earlobes and Enlarged Piercing Holes
The earlobe is an integral part of the face in an aesthetic sense. For instance, women have often adorned jewelry in this area, with ear piercings being one of the oldest types of body modifications. Unappealing physical characteristics of the earlobe, such as being too large or having an uneven shape, can become a cause of concern for patients. Additionally, earlobes can be damaged from wearing long, heavy jewelry, which can cause further resulting in undesired aesthetic conditions. Split earlobe Over time, patients who wear long or heavy jewelry, especially if suspended from a fine ring, will eventually find that the heavy weight pulling on their piercing stretches, elongates, and sometimes completely pulls through the piercing hole, resulting in a split earlobe. A split earlobe can be incomplete or complete, and different techniques should be used for repair based on the type of damage sustained by the earlobe. Enlarged ear-piercing hole The stretching of the ea [Read more]
