Heat And Humidity Can Lead To Increased Break Outs!

Wash skin gently yet thoroughly immediately following exercise or any other activity that causes you to perspire heavily. Heat & humidity can lead to increased break outs.

Generally it will go off on its own. If there is redness in the region, severe pain on touch, then consult the surgeon.

Botox and Dermal Fillers - The Twin Face of Cosmetology

Botox and Dermal Fillers - The Twin Face of Cosmetology

Fillers vs botox

When it comes to the fight against fine lines there are seemingly endless options for giving your complexion a youthful boost. Botox and dermal fillers have long been a gold standard in cosmetic treatments. Both have been known to turn back the clock, smooth wrinkles and make your skin look younger. One of the most popular questions about the two procedures is: which one is better? this question is often misleading as both treatments are used depending on the patient's needs, and is nothing alike. We've all heard of botox thanks to the spate of celebrities who use it, but what about fillers, the other option for smooth, line-free skin?

Treatment comparison

Betting on botox

Botox is essentially refined neurotoxin, which can help treat wrinkles. Typical sites for botox are frown lines, forehead lines, crow's feet, lip lines, and many other wrinkles that result from facial expression. these treatments work by causing facial muscles to relax temporarily. Wrinkles continue to become more defined as the muscles become tighter and the skin creates deeper grooves. Botox relaxes the muscle so that the skin is not continually being pulled which gives the skin time to smooth out.

 Botox has also been known to relieve headaches in patients which are caused by muscle spasms or tension. It may be surprising to learn that botox is also useful with patients suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis. Axillary hyperhidrosis is a condition where a patient suffers from excessive sweating from the armpits. In this case, botox will block some of the signals which lead to secretion via sweaty armpits.

Focus on fillers

 Dermal fillers on the other hand, are designed to fill wrinkles, and re-volumize areas such as the cheeks, that typically lose volume as we age. Cosmetic fillers can plump up thin lips, enhance facial contours, improve the appearance of recessed scars, and get rid of facial lines while restoring volume and fullness to the face.

 It contains hyaluronic acid, which plumps up the skin, filling and smoothing out any surface wrinkles. The smooth injectable gel helps restore the skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, including those highly visible ones around the mouth and nose and on the forehead.

Misconceptions

Perhaps the most common misconception surrounding botox and dermal fillers is that they can achieve the same results as getting a facelift. This is simply not true since a facelift is a surgical operation and can accomplish more drastic results. Botox and dermal fillers merely alleviate the effects of aging and for younger people, can be used as a preventative.

Side effects

Negative side effects for non-invasive cosmetic treatments are usually uncommon, but it's important to note there are still risks, which can vary depending on the procedure. Compared to more invasive facial rejuvenation procedures, botox and dermal fillers are considered to be very safe procedures.

Recovery

There is minimal downtime for using botox. In fact, patients can have this treatment done on their lunch break and return to work. There is always a risk of swelling and bruising with dermal fillers, but most patients return to work the same day as well. This is a quick recovery compared to invasive procedures, which can take weeks, if not months, to heal.

Results

Typically, a patient can feel the results within a couple of days but may not see any results for a week or two.

It is important to remember that botox lasts for approximately four to six months depending on the patient. Many patients prefer a repeat dosage sooner than other patients because they are not tolerant of seeing any wrinkles at all.

The dermal filler results last for 1-2 years depending on the product you choose.

Botox and fillers: can you get both?

While you might think that botox and fillers can only be used separately, they're actually better together. Botox is often used in conjunction with fillers (and even lasers) to enhance the overall results of those treatments. botox and fillers are a perfect combination

Botox and fillers perform differently, so a combination of those treatment works better than either treatment alone. Botox relaxes the underlying facial muscle, while fillers plump the skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. together they provide the most soft and natural looking improvement in facial appearance and age related cosmetic concerns. In many cases soft tissue filler will last longer when used with botox

Between botox and fillers you should have no trouble finding a skin smoothing solution that works for you. Wrinkles and fine lines don't stand a chance against either, and if you really want a put stop to aging skin use a combination of both.

do let me know if you also have blackheads with pimples? and what current medications and remedies you already tried to treat acne? acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e or any self prescribed preparations on scars or pimples. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Ideally in such conditions where there are no options in allopathy, Homoeopathy can have a very good result. Provided the medicine is selected not on name but considering the patient as a whole. So my advise is to consult. Still you may take homoeoapthic medicine Kali Carb 200 1 dose.
