Botox & Fillers - How They Work?

Botox & Fillers - How They Work?

One thing most people do every day is to look in the mirror and analyze their looks. The face is needless to say the most analyzed part, and most people would want some or the other feature changed. This need increases with age, when fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, crow’s feet, etc., begin to make an appearance.

The skin has multiple layers, with the inner dermal layer having collagen and fibrous tissue which is covered by the topmost layer, epidermis. Though the epidermis is visible, the underlying layers give skin all its features from firmness to color to tone. Most skincare products work at improving these underlying layers, be it hyaluronic acid or vitamin A/E, or retinol, or benzoyl peroxide. These products can be used to improve skin tone, texture, glow or color. In addition to all the products that are available, Botox too made an entry into the market.

How they work?
With age, all tissues degenerate, and so do the skin’s underlying layers. Also, with poor food habits, the skin may not be getting the required nutrition to regenerate itself adequately. Therefore, these products are used directly on the skin to act as “fillers.” All the chemicals used as fillers contain essential skin ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, vitamin C, vitamin A, salicylic acid, etc. Injected directly into the skin, they have a higher impact than when taken as a food or applied on the skin. The skin is able to regenerate better, and therefore improve appearance. The result is a glowing skin which is radiant and youthful.

How is it done?

  • Most treatments are in-office, walk-in procedures wherein each sitting takes about 20 minutes.
  • In a relaxed environment, the filler is injected into the skin, and the patient rests for about 10 minutes before walking out.
  • These injections are useful in improving tone, firming up the skin, and reducing sagginess and droopiness.
  • Repeat sittings are required once in 3 to 4 months to maintain the appearance.

Botox: Initially, this neurotoxin was used to treat diseases such as paralysis, but then its cosmetic use was gradually established. It is used when fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. It acts on the nerve endings and paralyzes them, thereby preventing wrinkles and reducing sagging.

How is it done?
This is again done as an outpatient procedure, and will take about 20 to 30 minutes. Not just wrinkles, even fine lines especially on the forehead can be eliminated with Botox. Production of skin proteins such as collagen and elastin are improved after Botox treatment, giving skin a youthful, radiant appearance.

While ageing is still inevitable, a youthful appearance can be prolonged and managed with options such as fillers and Botox.

Corporate World Stress - Ways To De-stress Yourself!

Corporate World Stress - Ways To De-stress Yourself!

Business world has evolved in the past few decades in such a manner where small businesses grow to become corporate. The world is increasingly being dominated by corporations and a significant number of people also work in these places.

Stress and The Corporate World:

One of the things that come along with the corporate environment is stress as it brings with it an entirely new lifestyle. Irregular food habits, odd shift durations, insufficient sleeping hours and extremely tough work situations are all part and parcel of this corporate world. Although highly rewarding in the path of materialistic pursuits, it squeezes out your life-force and pushes you to stress and other diseases such as:

  1. Depression

  2. Diabetes

  3. Blood pressure

  4. Asthma

  5. Migraines and

  6. Acidity and other gastrointestinal problems just to mention a few.

Methods to Deal with Stress in the Corporate World:

In the corporate world, the level of stress proliferates quickly and very few workplaces actually harbor a healthy atmosphere to look after their employees. Thus you have to take steps to reduce stress by yourself. Here are some of the ways by which you can save yourself from the parasite of stress.

  1. You may often feel everything around you going haywire in your workplace. The next time you have this notion, try gathering your focus on everything that is going right instead. Let optimism fill your day and keep your cool knowing that losing it will only cause you harm.

  2. At work, when hours fall short for achieving your target, keep a To-Do list to manage your priorities in an efficient and organized way.

  3. For most people work seems to engulf their entire life. Do not allow this to happen at any cost. Maintain a healthy balance between your office and your personal commitments. Make time for the people you love.

  4. Take short breaks in between your work to rejuvenate your energy level.

  5. Try out methods of relaxation, for instance a long walk, a hot bath, yoga or meditation.

  6. Assess your work at the end of the day as well as set a schedule plan for the tasks to be completed on the following day.

  7. Engage in hobbies like drawing, painting, dancing and gardening or music to disconnect from the pressures of the corporate world.

  8. Pay a visit to a psychologist or a stress management workshop to de-stress yourself. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Smartphones - Why Should We Avoid Them Before Bedtime?

MD - Medicine , MBBS
General Physician, Vadodara
Smartphones - Why Should We Avoid Them Before Bedtime?

For most of us, our smartphone is the first thing we look at in the morning and the last thing we check before going to bed. But, is it a right practise? Well, it is not. As per a recent study published by the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, using a smartphone right before bedtime actually reduces the overall quality of sleep. 

Here's how:

  • Difficulty in falling asleep - We feel sleepy when our brain releases a hormone called melatonin, which is determined by the body's circadian rhythm. The blue light emitted by the screen of the smartphone interferes with this rhythm and the secretion of melatonin, which makes it difficult for us to fall asleep, even after we keep our phone aside. 
  • Poor quality of sleep - Using a smartphone before going to bed also hampers the overall quality of sleep because, when we check an office email or a text message as the last thing before we sleep, it gets difficult for our brain to relax, due to which we are unable to sleep peacefully.
  • Decreased attention span - Our productivity suffers during the day, due to lack of proper sleep at night. Also, not getting enough sleep is known to hamper our decision-making skills, impair our long & short-term memory, which leads to unnecessary stress and anxiety.
  • Increased risk of weight gain - Our body is more likely to feel hungry when we don't get our due share of sleep, as sleep deprivation slows down our metabolism. Thus, use of smartphone right before bedtime can induce cravings, which lead to snacking and weight gain.
  • Weak immune system - While we are asleep our immune system produces antibodies that help fight infections, it also releases a protein known as cytokines. This protein not only promotes sleep but also fights inflammation and other problems caused by stress. Lack of sound sleep decreases the production of cytokines and increases the risk of falling sick, it also slows down our recovery cycle. Further, long-term sleep deprivation can raise the risk of diseases, such as diabetes, heart problems and obesity
  • Skin damage - Sleeping late at night and not getting enough sleep can lead to dark circles, puffy eyes and fine lines across our face. The blue light emitted by our smartphones triggers the secretion of cortisol, which can damage our skin's smoothness and elasticity.

Thus, even if we are spending only some time on our smartphone before going to bed, it affects our overall mental and physical well-being. Want to know more about the problems sleep deprivation can cause or solutions that can help, consult our expert & get answers to questions!

Prevention Of Back Pain During Office Hours

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Prevention Of Back Pain During Office Hours

Many people work throughout the day on computers, thereby spending most of their time on the desktops, sitting for more than 10 hours at a stretch without doing any physical activity. There are many others who sit in buses, trains, planes and cars when they travel, spend time in restaurants  to eat food or a meal, sit at home to watch their favorite Television shows, thereby following a sedentary lifestyle by spending whole day in some place. Experts say that people who sit at one place to work eventually experience pain in lower back and neck region either due to poor chair design or because of  inappropriate sitting posture.

  • While we change from a standing posture to a sitting posture there are various anatomical changes that occur. Lumber spine changes its shape to adjust on what we choose to sit and how we sit. If we chose to sit on a flat surface, stool, bench, without any back support we hunch the body forward for support, often resting our arms on our legs to reduce fatigue. As we hunch ahead, the lower back curves outwards into a kyphotic shape. (The neck and lower back sections of the spine have a natural curve to them called Kyphotic). This is generally regarded as unhealthy and uncomfortable sitting posture if sustained for a longer time. So at the end of the day we have to sit and maintain the lumber spine in a posture called Lordosis (the thoracic spine has a natural curve going in the opposite direction and this is called lordotic.
  • To keep spine safe and healthy, one requires to make periodic changes in posture. A dynamic movement helps to increase circulation and reduce muscle fatigue. There is desirable range of movement that works for most of the people who live a sedentary lifestyle.  There are many factors that can affect your back at the workstation and this includes sitting posture, computer screen position, chair height, keyboard and mouse position and desk equipment layout.
  • One should be active even if he or she is a sedentary worker. The longer one is immobile, the weaker his or her back muscles will become, and the more they will hurt in the long term. For back pain that lasts more than six weeks, treatment typically involves a combination of painkillers and either acupuncture, exercise classes or manual therapy. Taking regular intervals between a long day struggle at office will help one maintain the pain and will keep the person active.
  • In addition to walk for a while in office, experts say that doing some simple stretches  can help the muscles to ease. Wrist extension and flexion by holding the top of your hand pushing it ahead  and pushing your fingers into your palm to push the hand back helps to stretch the ligaments and tendons in the forearm which tend to get tight and shortened after a day of computer work. Hamstring stretches such as bending down to touch toes can help alleviate back pain. The biggest culprit in lower back issues is the hamstrings so you want to stretch the hamstrings to lessen the stress on the lower back. Stretching can help one’s blood flow in the right direction.
  • Lumbar support and seat pads may help relieve lower back pain, but experts say  the tendency  with these aids is still to lean forward causing unwanted stress on the spine. Instead, they recommend  a kneeling chair that has a fixed seat with a 30 degree slope and padded support for the knees. Because of the angle, [the kneeling chair] forces you to sit up straight and maintains a neutral position of the spine. Kneeling chairs also allow hip flexors to lengthen and put less pressure on the lower back by preventing slouching. Stress affects everyone regardless of back pain, but stress does have a physical effect on the lower back itself.
  • Lower Back pain can be controlled by lessening the stress, improving sitting posture and also by following healthy food and life habits.

Scar Solutions after Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Scar Solutions after Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Depending on the techniques used, surgery for gynecomastia leaves scars which are in different places, and they may be more or less visible or acceptable to the man. There is no such thing as truly scarless surgery for gynecomastia. Given time most scars heal well and will be barely visible. The choice of which technique is used and where the scars should be discussed with the surgeon carrying out the procedure. Each surgeon and each man considering surgery will have their own thoughts and preferences, so the options should be discussed and all parties can agree on one approach. Although uncommon, some men do unfortunately have problems with their scars, either during the early phase – such as bleeding or infection – or later after the procedure if the scars become hypertrophic or keloid.

There is unfortunately no way to prevent scar tissue after any surgery. The goal is to minimize scar after surgery. Gynecomastia surgery is not deemed medically necessary nor is the removal of the resulting scars, but many men suffer severe psychological distress making solutions essential. Scar tissue for procedures  including the perioareolar region for gynecomastia are usually barely visible but it can persist for many months till it heals in that way.

Scar tissue is the body’s normal way of healing and some patients have excessive wound healing and scar healing responses and this can lead to a hypertrophic scar. A hypertrophic scar is red and raised and itchy and generally responds to non-surgical treatments. Many scars do not heal with a hypertrophic scar responds and are flat on the surface, but there can be thick and irregular tissue underneath. This is again a normal process of wound healing and it tends to soften or remodel over many months. The perioareolar area has many ducts and glands, which may lead to increased inflammation and subclinical infection, which can delay wound healing.

 It takes a year for scars to fully mature but they never "disappear" but should also hardly be noticeable if placed along the areola border. The incision for gynecomastia surgery goes partly around the areola and at armpit in our technique. We at Elegance clinic, Surat do not put any extra scar on lower chest for gynecomastia surgery. The armpit incision is for entry for liposuction and it is well hidden in armpit line which is natural line happening at junction of trunk and upper arm. As it heals it usually is well hidden due to the change in skin texture and color. However, for some patients, a thick scar known as a keloid may form leaving the patient with a new problem that may make him still feel uncomfortable going shirtless.

Choosing an experienced Board Certified gynecomastia surgeon is your best bet in getting optimal surgical results including the healing of the incisions. We cosmetic plastic surgeons are well trained for better suturing for barely visible scar. We use layered suturing that too with very fine sutures. This differentiates cosmetic plastic surgeons’ scar from any other surgeon. We also do not put any scar outside chest area. We do not put scar on chest wall to as usually done by other speciality to get access to gland of gynecomastia.

Usually gynecomastia incision is not prone for such scarring. Some men produce more collagen than others during the healing process. It is the excess collagen makes a raised noticeable scar. This can be genetic or the poor suturing technique which can cause such bad scarring. Past history or positive family history for bad scar formation is a warning to go for such surgery as you also can develop bad scar for you. It is a patient’s duty to inform doctor regarding this type of healing issues.

I stress to my patients the importance of following all preoperative and postoperative instructions in order for them to get the best results. I have found compression vests and early re-mobilization are helpful adjuncts in the minimization of post-operative scarring. When it comes to the care of the incisions, I advise my patients to use special gels preventing hypertrophic scarring and regular massage of incision sites. After the healing of the incisions, silicone sheeting is used to control the formation of keloids. If the hypertrophy develops I use intralesional injection or Laser / radiofrequency for the management of the scar. In the first year after surgery (really the first six months) steroid injections can be very helpful in breaking down any scar tissue formations. After one year the success of steroid injections to reduce prominent scar tissue diminishes considerably as the bonding of the collagen in the scar tissue becomes very mature. There is no harm in doing further steroid injections but be aware that the success of them at this far out from surgery may not be like what had occurred earlier after surgery. Should this fail you should consider a small revision through an open incision under local anesthesia as an office procedure. This can remove the problematic small area of scar with little risk of recurrence.

You can expect to find a result in 9-12 months following the surgery. There are many treatments that can help accelerate these topical laser treatments on discolouration of the scar and then bulk heating radio frequency treatments to facilitate softening of the glandular area. These bulk heating radio frequency devices help remove the swelling and edema which contribute to firmness of the scar tissue as well as enhance tightness and contour.

  I think you have a high probability of ending up with an excellent result and it’s very important to follow-up with your operative plastic surgeon as they are in the best position for recommendations for post-operative care.
