Thread Face Lift - Things You Need To Be Aware Of!

More and more surgical as well as cosmetic age defying skin treatments are emerging which endows your skin with a new leash of life. As they say 50 is the new 20. With the barrage of products and therapies available these days, we no longer need to be worried about the blatant signs of ageing appearing on our skins or in our lives for that matter. It's easy to look as fresh and rejuvenated as your younger self with the help of these skin repair techniques. While some of them may entail a proper surgical procedure, others can resolve skin issues in a more natural manner. In that regard: 

  • Thread Lift has assumed widespread popularity in the context of face correction.
  • Thread Lift is essentially the use of threads or sutures for the purpose of voluminizing, lifting and contouring of skin. It also is effective in stimulating collagen production. 
  • It involves placing the sutures, made from permanent and absorbable materials, under the skin which then acts as suspension cables holds the skin in place and fortifies it against the effects of aging and gravity.

Myths Surrounding Botox And Dermal Fillers!

Myths Surrounding Botox And Dermal Fillers!

Myth #1 – Botox and dermal fillers are the same treatment

Although both are injectable, the similarity ends there. Botox is a muscle relaxant that reduces wrinkles and can soften and prevent lines, aesthetically lift or drop facial structures. Whereas, dermal fillers restore volume and lift facial tissues, giving you a youthful look. They can also stabilise, reshape and contour facial structures. Dermal Fillers also last longer than Botox.

Myth #2They result in an unnatural look

Fillers are products used to replace the volume we lose in our faces as we age. If done carefully and with a good aesthetic sense, you will look rejuvenated and natural.

It is true that over correction with too much filler can result in an overly plumped out face. Carla Bruni, Madonna and Lindsay Lohan have been papped by the press with excessive cheek volume and an overly inflated appearance. As a cosmetic doctor, it is not unusual to hear“I don’t want my lips to end up looking like Anushka Sharma’s!” Many people have been put off lip filler injections because of a few disastrous procedures.

It is important to keep a sense of proportion and not to overdo it. However, when these treatments are carried out by a properly trained practitioner with an astute eye this should not happen. It is better to under-treat and add more product at a later date rather than create a false fat looking face. For best results, it is recommended that you seek out a specialist who has expertise in using fillers in the face.

Myth # 3 – It is a painful procedure

Many filler products are packaged with numbing solution mixed into them, resulting in nearly painless injections. Topical numbing ointments provide additional relief. Additionally, micro-cannulas which are blunt tipped - not sharp, like needles, can be used to enhance patient comfort.

Myth # 4 – There will be a lot of bruising or downtime

Although bruising and swelling can occur with filler injections, particularly around the eyes or mouth, it is infrequent or minimal in the hands of experienced doctors. The chances can be reduced by using cool compresses, arnica montana tablets and cream, and elevating the head of the bed.

Most of the time, bruising and/or swelling can be concealed with make-up and is not very noticeable. As a safeguard against the occasions when it may be more noticeable, we recommend that you don’t have your filler treatments performed within a week to 10 days of a major event such as a wedding

Myth # 5Once you get Botox or fillers, you must continue to have them forever

Many people believe that once you start having Botox injections or dermal fillers, your skin will sag and wrinkle more than ever before if you stop the treatments. This is not true. When the effects of Botox or fillers wear off, your skin will look exactly the same as it did before the treatment and no worse. It’s simply that most people are so happy with the results of their treatments that they continue to have them for many years to come!

Also, the frequency of maintenance is not as long as most people think. It depends on such factors as the filler being used, where it is placed, and the activity level of the person receiving the filler. Consequently, fillers may only need to be repeated every 6-8 months or as infrequently as once every 2 years depending on the above factors.

Myth # 6 – Fillers can replace a surgical facelift

While fillers add volume and can give the appearance of “looking lifted,” they cannot ever replace the results of surgery, which lifts and tightens the deeper tissues while removing excess and sagging skin. Often, in older patients with substantial drooping, a combination of surgery plus volume replacement with filler will provide optimal rejuvenation results.

Myth #7It is okay to shop around for the cheapest price.. It’s just a few standard injections…ANYONE can do them..

The most important aspect of these treatments the skill, talent, aesthetic sense, and expertise of the practitioner administering the filler. There are many physicians, nurses, and dentists that will offer fillers to their patients, often at very low costs, as a source of extra income. Many have little training, sometimes just having taken a weekend course.

This process is similar to commissioning a beautiful piece of art. The type of paint or clay being used is secondary. What is paramount is the skill and vision of the artist. So rather than shop for prices, one should look for an experienced injector who has expertise and training in facial aesthetics and a vision attuned to one’s own aesthetic sense.

Myth # 8Any filler can be placed anywhere – they are all the same

Not all fillers are the same, nor can they be placed in any location. Certain fillers should be avoided around the eyes and lips. Juvederm®, for example, attracts water, and therefore is not ideal to use close to the eyes where the skin is thin.

Myth # 9Botox and Filler treatments are just for women

Although cosmetic injectables are more commonly requested by females, there has been a significant increase amongst men in recent times. The most commonly requested female procedures are brow lifts, cheek and lip enhancement, whilst in gents, hyperhidrosis, frown lines and chin re-shaping rank amongst the top few. Interestingly, male customers often advertise it more than their female counterparts, with studies showing only 12% of women confessing to having treatments, compared to a whopping 74% of men!

Myth # 10Botox treatments are toxic and dangerous

With nearly 20 years of use for a range of different conditions, Botox has a long and well-established safety history. More than 16 million treatments have been performed since it was first introduced in the marketplace. No long term side effects have ever been seen in users of the treatments even in studies that followed people who received thirty or more injections over a period of 9 years. It would take a dose of more than 100 times the average dose given for cosmetic use for cosmetic Botox treatments to be fatal.

Things You Must Know About Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedure!

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are non-invasive procedures that make the skin look smoother and unblemished. Since surgical procedures need more downtime & hence may not always be the preferred choice. This is when non-surgical procedures come in picture. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures can reduce wrinkles, alter the appearance of the lips, remove blemishes, moles and thread veins and even smoothen out the surface of the skin. 

What are the types of non-surgical treatments you can opt for? 

There are several types of non-surgical treatments. The commonly-used ones include: 

1. Botox injections: Botox or botunilaum toxin type A is treatment used for removing skin blemishes. It is injected into a particular part of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that usually appear at middle age. It is very popular as people consider it as an effective and relatively safer procedure compared to other invasive procedures. 

2. Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are injections that are used to fill in wrinkles and creases on the skin surface. They also play a part in increasing the volume and size of the lips. 

3. Chemical peels: Chemical peels are specifically designed liquids that remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and accelerate the growth of new cells. They improve the general appearance of the skin, reduce uneven pigmentation and eliminate acne. There are three types of chemical peels - superficial, medium and deep. 

4. Non-surgical laser treatments: These forms of treatment are usually used to remove unwanted hair on the face and body, and to remove tattoos from the skin surface. In laser hair removal treatment, a laser beam is used to damage hair roots in the skin from which the hair grow out. This process reduces the growth of hair. 

A beam of Fractional CO2 laser is used to make small dots on the skin with normal skin left untouched in between. This causes tightening of the tissue underneath, producing a firmer appearance which can take off years from the appearance. 

5. Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which fine crystals and vacuum are used to remove dead cells from the skin surface. It successfully eliminates fine wrinkles and skin blemishes. 

What are the risks? 

Non-surgical procedures are less harmful than surgical procedures. However, over correction can be difficult to treat, as well as asymmetrical placement of fillers and allergic reactions to the procedures. You should discuss the allergies and other potential complications of the procedure with the plastic surgeon.

Under Eye Hollows - Which Is The Best Cosmetic Procedure?

Had you not rested properly, it will be seen in your eyes. And, eyes, are an important aspect that enhances the beauty of a person. If you are living with under eye hollows, you may want to get a fix as it would spoil your outlook.

Undereye hollows are the opposite of having puffy eyes. The problem is not very visible in people with fuller faces, but if you happen to have a slender face, it can be evident. The cause of under eye hollows is attributed to a lack of fat in the eye region. This can be caused by hereditary problems, sudden weight loss or simply through aging. You can adopt either surgical or non-surgical options depending on what your cosmetic physician suggests for your case.

Non-Surgical Methods
The easiest way to deal with under eye hollows if you do not want to go for a surgical method is a hyaluronic acid treatment. The acid is used to fill the deficient areas in the eyes through an injection, and it is then followed up with treatment procedures on the surface of the skin to make the skin look fuller under your eyes.

The downside of the procedure is that it is not a permanent solution and you will need to have multiple procedures over time to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment. The effectiveness of the method varies from person to person, and if it does not last very long for you, it is recommended to go for a permanent method to avoid any chances of damage to the eyelids or develop any other risks in the process.

Surgical Methods

  1. Fat Grafting: It is the method of choice when it comes to treating under eye hollows. It is a safe and effective procedure and is recommended by cosmetic surgeons if you want a permanent solution. The procedure involves moving fat tissues from other parts of your body and placed under your eyelids. It is a fix that has beneficial effects on the skin below your eyelids. The procedure helps reconstruct the eyelid area, and the procedure doesn't have any side effects.
  2. BlepharoplastyThis is another common method that is used to correct any form of disfiguration or deformity of the eyelids. The procedure helps improves the eye region aesthetically by removing excess fat and reinforcing the surrounding tissue region of the eye.

The procedure dates to the Roman and Greek eras but with the modernization of technology the procedure has evolved, and cosmetic surgeons now use laser blepharoplasty for the procedure which is much safer and non-invasive in nature. The procedure usually takes between one to three hours to complete, and any internal swelling that occurs will resolve itself within a couple of weeks. It takes several months for the results to show up. It is recommended to take a post and pre-operative images to assess the changes.

Dermabrasion: Procedures and Results

Dermabrasion is a skin related treatment used by cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists to cure a number of ailments that may leave your skin looking less than healthy. This method basically employs a technique that removes the upper layers of your skin with the help of a rough edged diamond wheel or a wire brush. These edges are called a burr or a fraise.

Here is everything you need to know about the procedure as well as the results that it can yield:

  • Areas and Conditions: The most common areas where this procedure is conducted include the face as well as the neck. It is mostly used to treat people who want to remove fine lines that form around the eyes and the mouth, as well as patients who are suffering from acne scars and other inflammation causing skin ailments as well as abrasions due to injuries.
  • Preparation: The procedure includes cleaning and marking the area that is being treated. This is the first step that helps in seeing exactly what needs to fixed, the extent of the damage and the intensity of the treatment to be employed. Following this process, the doctor will administer a local anaesthesia such as, Lidocaine that will numb the area before the actual treatment begins so that the patient does not undergo any discomfort. Also, with this purpose in mind, the dermatologist may also apply ice packs on the face and neck of the patient so as to make the skin even more numb and remain like that for a longer period of time. Additionally, the skin may be sprayed with a freezing cryogenic spray in order to retain the numbness and keep the skin firm enough for effective treatment. If the doctor is going to treat deeper abrasions or the entire face, then pain killers and general anaesthesia may be used.
  • Procedure: To begin with, a small area is exposed to the treatment at a time, rather than the entire area or face at one time. After the freezing spray is administered, the doctor may run the rotating brush or burr to remove the top layers of the skin. Gauze will be kept handy so as to stem any bleeding that may take place during the process. Finally, the area will be covered with the help of ointment and dressing.
  • Results: The recovery time is said to take anywhere between five to eight days. But this also depends on the severity of condition that was treated, as well as the area that was covered. Little or no pain may follow and regular cleaning will be required. To prevent re-occurrence or re-growth of the problem, follow up visits to the dermatologist will be required.

Chemical Peels And Microdermabrasion!

Chemical Peels And Microdermabrasion!

With the growing importance on how a person looks, everybody is obsessed with trying to look younger and prettier. Skin that is flawless, glowing, and clear is not just something celebrities want but is every person’s dream. It is no wonder that the cosmetic industry has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of technology and chemical based treatments.

Talking of cosmetic skin treatments, two of the most common methods are chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Read on to know about these skin exfoliation techniques.

Why exfoliate?

The skin has multiple layers, and with constant exposure to the environment, the top layers are constantly exposed to pollution and dust and sunlight. This makes the skin very dull and weary. There are also dead cells on the top, which need to be removed so that fresh cells from the underlying layers surface up to give the skin a fresh, glowing look. This is known as skin exfoliation.

Chemical peels
Due to various reasons, when skin does not repair naturally, the role of chemical peels comes in play. This helps in removing these top layers, thus, in turn, removing the rough, dry layers and giving the skin, a good texture.

What is done?

  1. Skin is cleansed and a chemical is applied which penetrates the skin. These are usually enzymes from the fruits or vegetables or alpha hydroxyl acid or phenols
  2. The process is repeated multiple times with gaps of few days to help in fresh skin generation, depending on expected results
  3. Topical moisturizer and sunscreen should be used post treatment.

Microdermabrasion
This is a physical exfoliation technique, in that the top layers are manually cleared of debris and dead cells. This produces instant results, but cannot be used in acute cases where the skin is inflamed or sensitive.

What is done?

  1. A crystal or diamond tip which has fine aluminum or diamond particles is used to abrade the skin
  2. This removes any dead cells and debris
  3. These are suctioned away
  4. The result is velvety, smooth skin which is soft, bright, and glowing
  5. Can also be combined with other rejuvenation procedures like laser
  6. Should be repeated on a monthly basis for optimal results
  7. It also helps penetration of topical creams and lotions, making them more effective.

While both are well-proven techniques for exfoliation, the treatment option is decided by the doctor by consulting the patient. Each person’s response to such treatments is different, so choose the treatment that will be most beneficial and effective for you.

Botox - 6 Benefits You Must Know!

Botox - 6 Benefits You Must Know!

Aging is often considered to be the only ‘truth’ in the life of a human being, a ‘truth’ that is unalterable. However, being unalterable does not mean that it has to be reflected on your body. The skin loses collagen as you grow older. Collagen is the element in your skin that keeps your skin tight and firm when you are young. Loss of collagen leads to skin sagging as well as wrinkles.

Botox, a cosmetic treatment derived from Clostridium Botulinum, is utilized for smoothing wrinkled skin. Botox is utilized in the form of injections. The Botulinum toxin is injected into the body in traceable amounts; it inhibits the secretion of chemical (acetylcholine) associated with contraction of muscles and hence, helps in smoothening wrinkles and fine lines. Botox prevents the nerve cells from transmitting signals to the muscles.

The various benefits of Botox include:

  1. Non-surgical: Since Botox is administered using injections, the fears and hassles of undergoing a surgery are avoided.
  2. Excessive sweating: Botox injections can be used to address hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is generally characterized by increased sweating.
  3. Overactive bladders: In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox can also be utilized to address the condition of overactive bladder and urinary incontinence (involuntary and uncontrolled urination). Botox increases the volume of the bladder thereby reducing incontinence. Once an injection is administered, the overactive bladder will be cured gradually.
  4. Migraines: Botox injections, administered at regular intervals for around 12 weeks, can be used to address chronic migraines. It helps reduce headaches and additionally, reduces the chances of relapse. It is extremely beneficial for those who suffer from chronic headaches during one such migraine attack.
  5. Eyebrow: Your eyebrow may sag due to various factors, age being the primary contributor. Botox helps lift your drooping eyebrows; giving you a fresher and youthful look.
  6. Enlarged Prostate: Botox injections can have long term beneficial effects on men with enlarged prostates. Problems related to frequent urination and infections in the urinary tract can be addressed, while side effects, that accompany other medications, are avoided. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.
