Woman receiving injection to contour jawline
Introduction Patients seeking rejuvenating procedures for their aging face often present with prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines, loss of volume to the lips, and changes along the jawline. Subtle changes along the jawline reveal advancing age. A patient’s appearance is significantly affected with the loss of definition of the mandibular border. There is a general perception that a well-contoured jawline is the hallmark of a youthful face. Aging is a natural phenomenon and the skin bears the first obvious signs of the passing of time. Gravitational forces, increased tissue laxity, and progressive bone resorption all play a role in the manifestations of facial aging. Atrophy and resorption of the malar, submalar, and buccal fat pads lead to volume loss in the midface. With aging, the jawline’s shape becomes less aesthetically appealing. As a result, there has been a significant increase in the number of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedur [Read more]
Sunscreen on a woman's hand
The skin covers the entire body, making it our largest organ. Due to its exposure to the elements, it comes as no surprise that the skin is largely affected by the environment and its changes. Temperature and humidity changes necessitate adjusting skincare routines to maintain skin health, as many skin-related diseases and issues—such as  acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea—show seasonal variability. Fortunately, there are plenty of skincare products that differ in terms of moisture content, thickness, and strength, which means there are plenty of products to meet the skin’s needs. It is important to consider seasonal changes when planning clinical treatments as well. Understanding the structure and function of skin The skin can be divided into two main layers: the epidermis and dermis. The uppermost layer is the epidermis, which is composed of tightly packed epithelial cells. It is essentially the barrier that keeps out harmful substances such as bacteria, to [Read more]
Filler injection into lips
The look of a full and sulky lip has been desired by both genders for hundreds, if not thousands of years. They convey a sense of youth that is attractive and pleasing. The desire for luscious lips spares is one that is present in many cultures, both in the past and in the present. Indeed, even across the central steppes of Asia and the vast riches of the Middle East, the lips are regarded as the aesthetic center of the lower face. To many females in particular, they are a major sign for beauty. For many patients today, the lips are a prime aesthetic concern, especially for patients that have severe signs of aging such as a decrease in lip volume, perioral wrinkles, smoker’s lines, and downturned corners. However, many patients share a common negative perception about surgical procedures, including ones aimed at the lips, as the complications of such procedures have often been devastating and/or even permanent. Fortunately, the days of exceptionally poor results from [Read more]
Male receiving body contouring treatment
For centuries, the ideal male body has been depicted as an athletic, lean, and muscular figure; this is seen in many historic art pieces, such as Greek sculptures. Today, many actors are considered body icons and are sprawled across the front pages of magazines globally. Research has found that the ideal male body shape is characterized by lean and well-defined muscle mass, and it is often a body type that many women prefer as well. This body type is considered a physical manifestation of traits such as discipline, dominance, resilience, attractiveness, and sexual experience.

Using Sculptra with Needles
Sculptra is an injectable that contains poly-L-lactic acid as one of its main ingredients. It is often packaged into a vial as a dry powder that must be reconstituted. Poly-L-lactic acid is a cosmetic filler material that, when injected into the tissues, stimulates collagen production by being targeted by the immune system as foreign bodies. This is the mechanism behind its augmentation function. This article will focus on the technical aspects of using Sculptra for facial rejuvenation. Preparation Reconstitute Sculptra at least two to seven days before treatment with 6ml of bacteriostatic water. On the day of the injection, add 3ml of lidocaine with epinephrine to make a solution of 9ml in the vial; this reduces the need to introduce a local anesthetic injection before the treatment. Do not shake the vial when attempting to mix the solution; instead, just gently roll the vial, make sure no bubbles are formed. Use a 21-gauge needle to draw the solution from the vial and use a 25-gaug [Read more]
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]
An Overview of Nonsurgical Body Contouring Treatments
The demand for body contouring treatments is at an all-time high: the IMCAS projects that the value of the body contouring and energy devices segment of the global aesthetic medical and surgical market is set to reach 2.3 billion euros in 2018, a substantial increase from its valuation of 1.5 billion euros in 2013. This can be attributed to the constant innovation and development in the industry that has resulted in the recent emergence of treatment modalities that cater to reshaping the body and reducing or eliminating areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise. Traditionally, patients only had the option of excising fat through body contouring surgical procedures, such as brachioplasty, abdominoplasty, or the like in order to achieve their aesthetic goals. However, the available options have expanded considerably since, thereby allowing patients to seek alternative treatments that may be far more suitable for them in terms of price and safety.

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]
