Restylane for Chin Augmentation: Treatment Review
Restylane is one of the most popular dermal fillers used to treat the chin area. Restylane is often used by medical professionals around the world because it offers a wide variety of products. Restylane fillers for chin augmentation often used include Restylane Lyft and Restylane Volume. These two specialized fillers are highly elastic and are ideal to treat the tip of the chin. Why opting for Restylane when looking to augment your chin? The chin is often an area of aesthetic concern for the aging population. The effects of age on the jawline and chin are readily apparent, with the loss of bone density resulting in a reduction of mandibular height and length. The two main issues often seen in this area are dimpling or creasing caused by the movement of the mentalis muscle, as well as a reduction of chin volume secondary to hereditary bone definition (chin retrusion). Both of these issues can be addressed with filler treatment, which is able to provide improvement to the anterior, [Read more]
Assessing the Lips for Successful Rejuvenation
History of lip aesthetics Lips aesthetics change through the years, with various features and forms favoured by different cultures during different eras for reasons related to cultural beliefs, courtship and social status, and beauty and aesthetic ideals. For example, a study conducted that examined Caucasian fashion models in the late 20th century showed fuller and more anteriorly positioned lips are considered more attractive. Additionally, a study examining changes in the profile of the male model from 1930 for 65 years found significant changes in the appearance of the ideal lip, including an enhanced lip protrusion, increased lip curl and an increase in vermilion display. The desire to achieve this aesthetic ideal, coupled with the increasingly accessible treatments available, have led to a dramatic rise of lip augmentation procedures. In fact, lip augmentation is one the most popular types of aesthetic procedures in demand since the advent of modern dermal fille [Read more]

Botox and Pregnancy: What do studies say? Review
There are various aspects of interest when discussing the use of Botox on pregnant women. For example, would ongoing Botox treatments on the mother have a negative effect on the fetus? Could it cause a miscarriage or malformation to her baby?. Other interesting questions would happen after giving birth to the child and can often refer to breastfeeding. In this article, we'll review what studies have found in situations where pregnant women have continuously received Botox injections and other studies involving animal tests. Women of childbearing age often use Botox Because Botox is a cosmetic treatment, the majority of patients who receive Botox injections are women of childbearing age. Additionally, many patients receive Botox injections regularly to alleviate symptoms associated with medical conditions. Given the high frequency of Botox use among fertile women, it is therefore important that safety of Botox use during pregnancy be established, as many patients in the early stages [Read more]
How Long Does Sculptra Last? One to two years, studies find
The duration of Sculptra’s effects has been studied extensively in the treatment of patients with HIV-related facial lipoatrophy. Based off the findings of multiple clinical trials, including the Vega study and the Blue Pacific study, among others, the duration of effect of Sculptra was seen to last up to 24 months, with increases in skin thickness and high patient satisfaction. Furthermore, the durable results of Sculptra can be further extended with retreatment. In one case study, the correction of HIV-associated facial lipoatrophy seen in a 45-year-old patient who underwent retreatment with Sculptra was maintained for two years and seven months. The duration of effect of Sculptra was examined further in a 2015 study that assessed the length of effect of Sculptra by using 3D imaging to quantitatively measure midface volume changes in 15 patients who received Sculptra treatment for aesthetic purposes over a one-year period. They found that treatment starts to t [Read more]
Botox and Breastfeeding: Is it safe? What do studies say?
One of the biggest concerns a nursing mother has is the effects of any medications she is taking on her infant. Medications, like other ingested materials, can be potentially secreted into breast milk from maternal tissues and plasma through various methods including passive diffusion or binding to milk proteins. Indeed, research has provided sufficient evidence to suggest that nearly any drug that the mother had ingested will be present in her breast milk. A typical nursing mother will expect to breastfeed for a significant amount of time; the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that a child be breastfed exclusively in their first six months and continued with complementary foods thereafter up to the age of two or beyond. During this period, the infant could potentially be exposed to all manners of maternally-ingested drugs through their mother’s milk.

Upper Eyelid Dermatochalasis
The eyes are often one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging, due to the delicate skin in this region. Loss of elasticity in the eyelid may result in what is commonly referred to as “hooding,” where excess, loose upper eyelid skin droops outwards and down onto the eyelashes. Age-related changes can also cause the orbital fat, especially the medial fat pad of the upper eyelid, to prolapse through the thin attenuated orbital septum, creating an unsightly bulge. Overall, this can make a person look tired and aged, and is a cause for concern in many patients. Apart from the aging process, eyelid hooding can also occur if the eyelid tissue periodically swells (medically known as blepharochalasis), or with other medical conditions, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, thyroid eye disease, amyloidosis, eye trauma, hereditary angioneurotic edema, elastolysis, renal failure, and xanthelasma. Symptoms of dermatochalasis Medical vs cosmetic Patients may req [Read more]
Botox vs Dysport: Similarities and Differences Reviewed
Both Dysport and Botox contain Botulinum Toxin In 2009, a new competitor for Botox was approved for the US market, under the brand Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA). Like Botox, Dysport is a botulinum toxin treatment indicated for wrinkle correction as well as certain movement disorders like spasticity and cervical dystonia. However, these two botulinum neurotoxin preparations were manufactured and purified via distinct, proprietary manufacturing processes. As such, Dysport and Botox have different properties in terms of duration of results, diffusion, adverse event profile, and potency. Botox (onabotulinumtoxin a) is primarily known as a cosmetic injectable that treats wrinkles like glabellar lines; however, it has many more therapeutic uses. As a neurotoxin, it causes chemical denervation in cholinergic neurons, thus impacting signal transmission between these nerves to other cells. It is for this reason that Botox has many therapeutic applications. For instance, Botox is indicated in [Read more]
