Restylane for Nose: Non Surgical Rhinoplasty With Restylane Explained
Restylane for non-surgical rhinoplasty Restylane is a popular dermal filler used for correcting and enhancing the nose. It is well received by both patients and practitioners alike: patients like it because of its natural and effective results, while practitioners appreciate its ease of use and high moldability. When treating the nose with a dermal filler like Restylane, the injection is made in the deep dermis or subcutis, with small amounts of product deposited in short linear threads. Practitioners should avoid placing boluses of filler in a fixed position. Once placed, some molding or rolling can be employed to shape the product into the desired contour. Why reshaping your nose with Restylane is a good idea The nose is a central element of the face and significantly impacts facial aesthetics. As such, it is not surprising that there is popular demand for nasal augmentation and enhancement treatments. The advent of dermal fillers has given rise to a whole new set of options fo [Read more]
How Long does Radiesse Last?
Clinical aesthetics has faced a paradigm shift in how it approaches treatment of the aging face. Where before, aesthetic practitioners tended towards a two-dimensional model of treatment in which fillers were viewed and treated in isolation, advances in our understanding of facial anatomy and how it is affected by the aging process has resulted in a trend towards facial rejuvenating techniques that involve volume and shape replenishment. With the focus now on using volume and shape to restore youthful proportions, balance, and symmetry, there has been a massive surge in the development and use of injectable dermal fillers for anti-aging treatment. Why do doctors use Radiesse? Characterizing dermal fillers can be done by roughly diving them into two classes, based on their mode of action: those for volume replacement (where the majority of hyaluronic acid-based fillers lie), or for collagen biostimulation. Based on this classification, fillers made of calcium hydroxylapatite (marke [Read more]
Restylane for Smile Lines, Laugh Lines
Throughout the aging process, a combination of facial volume loss, skin laxity, and increased dryness leads to the development of wrinkles and folds. The mouth is particularly predisposed to wrinkles, as its high mobility and loss of volume can lead to the creation of lines. For this reason, treatment of this region is often requested by patients. Which Restylane filler is best for smile and laugh lines? The Restylane brand of dermal fillers offers many options for treating smile lines and laugh lines. The classic formula of Restylane is often used for this issue, as it has shown high efficacy and safety. For minor smile lines around the mouth, Restylane Silk is also an excellent choice, as its thin formula is easily spreadable. In some clinical practices, a layered combination approach may be taken, utilizing a combination of Restylane products so that a better treatment outcome is attained. Moreover, Restylane Refyne and Defyne (two new additions to the Restylane portfolio) are a [Read more]
Professional Tips for Treating Crow’s Feet with Botox
Containing botulinum toxin type A as its active ingredient, Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic injectables among patients. Today, Botox treatment is available in more than 78 countries worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries in South America, Asia, and Europe. The mechanism by which Botox acts is fairly simple: It blocks the signals of the motor nerve cells, thereby paralyzing the muscle. More specifically, Botox binds to the motor nerve terminals to inhibit the release of acetylcholine (ACh), a neurotransmitter that modulates muscle contraction, which results in a partial chemical denervation that reduces muscle activity. Botox is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Such conditions include spasticity, overactive bladder, cervical dystonia, urinary incontinence, blepharospasm, and migraines. Botox also has a long history of use in aesthetic medicine, where its application is thoroughly wide-ranging in use. In this r [Read more]
Juvederm Nasolabial Folds - How much is needed & How long does it last
What are nasolabial folds? Nasolabial folds, also referred to as “smile lines,” “parentheses lines,” or “laugh lines,” are the deep wrinkles or lines that extend from both sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. When a person smiles, nasolabial folds become more pronounced. The depth of nasolabial folds varies among individuals; however, as people age, the more pronounced and thicker the nasolabial folds become. In comparison, nasolabial folds are not present in newborns. This is due to the fact that the quantity of hyaluronic acid, a substance that gives skin its firmness and elasticity, decreases as people age. As the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, nasolabial folds become more prominent. Even though prominent nasolabial folds tend to occur in older individuals, people in their 20s may also notice them. Why choose Juvederm? Juvederm is a collection of injectable dermal fillers made from non-animal hyaluronic acid. It was app [Read more]
Tips for Professionals: Treating the Neck and Decollete
Aging in the neck and decolletage areas can often be indicative of a person’s true age. As such, it is important to treat these areas in order for your patient to retain a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, this region is all too often overlooked when it comes to caring for the skin. Most of the time, skincare routines (which include applying skincare products and SPF for sun protection), are limited to the face, resulting in an aged appearance on the skin of the neck and decolletage. The delicate skin on the neck is extremely prone to exhibiting the signs of aging. After the eye area, it is usually 1 of the first areas of the body to develop wrinkles, partially because its structure is less elastic. When combined with other age-related factors, such as chin fullness (submental fat), sagging of the jowls, and platysmal banding, this lack of flexibility usually results in loss of the definition of the cervicomental angle, which is associated with the aging neck.

Botulinum Toxin A vs B: What is Botulinum Toxin Used For?

How to Treat Forehead Lines with Botox (Botulinum Toxin)
Treat Forehead Lines with Botox For decades, Botox has been the treatment of choice for horizontal forehead lines. Botulinum toxin is the top nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S. since 2000, with over 4 million procedures performed in 2016. Generally, forehead lines create a stressed, worried, and fatigued appearance. Repetitive contractions of the frontalis muscle is the main cause of these lines. Treating this region may be the most nuanced of cosmetic neurotoxin injections, as it can compromise the brow area. An experienced and board-certified injector is in great demand, judging from the popularity of the procedure among female and male patients. How to determine who is a good candidate The presence of horizontal forehead lines is directly proportional to a patient’s age. It will be more beneficial for younger patients with minimal lines to undergo Botox procedure, as severe forehead wrinkles in older patients cannot be corrected by botulinum toxin alo [Read more]
