Botulinum injections are...

Botulinum injections are by far the most popular cosmetic treatment performed throughout the world. To give you some idea, according to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics, in 2009, there were more than 5 million procedures performed in the USA alone.
Botulinum injections are also known as muscle relaxing injections or wrinkle injections.

Essentially the injections work by relaxing and partially immobilizing muscle in the area where it’s injected. It works particularly well in areas where we develop, so called, “character lines” …that is, crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines. Our levels of collagen diminish as part of the aging process and the areas I mentioned age even more quickly because repeated muscle movement and the continual creasing and folding of the skin accelerates the breakdown of collagen further. By the way I often use dermal fillers and or collagen boosting injections in conjunction with the muscle relaxing botulinum for a more complete (whole face) rejuvenation treatment.

Wrinkle injections for around the mouth


Wrinkle injections are becoming increasingly available for people who want to wipe a few years from their face.  Injections come in different varieties and use different methods to remove wrinkles.  These methods range from using toxins to paralyze face nerves to using gels and filler acids to “fill in” the wrinkles.  While none of these injections are miracle fixes, and some of them have side effects, many happy customers return to their doctors for repeat injections.

Collagen wrinkle injections provide a temporary solution  for scar and wrinkle reduction or lip enhancement.  A natural protein derived  from cattle, collagen injections can cause allergic reactions in some people.   For this reason, an allergy test is usually performed a month before treatment.   Results typically last between six months and a year.  However, some people  absorb collagen into their skin rapidly, making the results less effective.
One of the newest wrinkle injections on the market is Juvederm.  Juvederm, an injectable gel, has nearly identical results to Restylane.  It removes crow's feet, laugh lines, frown lines and under eye hollows.  It is also frequently used as a lip plumper and can be used to fill in scars on the face.  Juvederm is popular with users and physicians.  It is a more pleasant experience for the user and physicians find it easiest to use.  Juvederm injections can be done every 6 - 9 months.
A very fine needle is used to administer wrinkle injections to select muscles of the face.   As these muscles become immobilized, the facial skin begins to smooth and fine  lines and wrinkles start to soften.  A treatment typically takes 30 minutes.  It  may take four to seven days, however, for the full results of the wrinkle injections to  become apparent.

Muscle relaxing injections serve best to smoothen out the face wrinkles.  They work by blocking the function of muscle that cause wrinkles.  Different types of injections are available and it is our choice to choose the best among them.


Wrinkles around mouth  is an issue of which lots of folks experience particularly ladies.   Majority of these facial lines could appear anywhere on your face although it seems that the most noticeable part is whenever it forms lines from the bottom of your nose all the way down to the edges of your mouth.

The presence of wrinkles around mouth affects your self-esteem.  They customarily appear on the area from the base of your nose down to your mouth.  The worse thing is that its location makes them so obvious.  That is why when you see them in the mirror you want them to be removed straight away.

It has long been suspected that wrinkles around mouth has been more of a problem for women than for men.  Those wrinkles are called perioral wrinkles, and a recent study indicates that biology may be the culprit in terms of women being more prone to them than men.
There are many factors that cause wrinkles around mouth.   The most typical is the excessive facial movements and expressions like when you're frowning, thinking too hard, smiling or annoyed.   Environmental components such as too much sun exposure and pollution can result into early aging that will be the reason behind your wrinkles.

People want to get rid of wrinkles around mouth as it can make a positive change to their entire appearance.  And one can adopt a lot of ways to get rid of wrinkles around mouth.  Since unhealthy skin can also be one the culprits, you can get rid of wrinkles around mouth, by making some substantial changes to your diet.  Usually a diet which constitutes of vitamin E filled fruits and vegetables can help you to combat wrinkles, and in certain cases, the development of wrinkles can get delayed as well.

One of the first sign of aging is the wrinkles around the mouth which are called the smile lines.  As the production of collagen slows down with aging, the skin's elasticity breaks down, resulting in those wrinkles.  It is further hastened by smoking and sun exposure without proper care.  But the good news is, there are many professional skin care products that will help you to reduce wrinkles around mouth.  There are some natural home remedies as well.
The most expensive skin care is not necessarily the best one either.  On the contrary, an inexpensive product may show tremendous results on your skin simply because it may contain more effective natural ingredients.  It is highly recommended that when choosing an anti-wrinkle product, select one with ingredients that are safe and natural, especially when using on wrinkles around mouth.

Wrinkle Injections - Are There Safe Botox Alternatives ?

Safe Botox Alternative

Botox is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment used to help diminish wrinkle lines. Botox is a neurotoxin made up of a toxin that the bacteria Clostridium botulinum produces. When injected into the muscles of the face, the neurotoxin disables the acetylcholine receptors of the affected muscle, making it unable to contract. With the muscle relaxed beneath the skin's surface, helping relieve the look of wrinkles. For those not wanting to inject toxin into the body, there are several other safe alternatives to help treat wrinkles.

Fat

Fat injections are an alternative to Botox. During the procedure, donor fat is removed from another area of your body--usually the the thighs or abdomen--and injected beneath wrinkled areas of the skin. The addition of fat fills out the space beneath the wrinkles, making them even with the surrounding skin.


Collagen is also a common alternative to Botox injections. Collagen injections can be both cow (bovine) based (sold as ZyDerm or ZyPlast) or human based (sold as CosmoDerm or CosmoPlast). Like fat injections, collagen fills space below the wrinkles on the skin so that they become even with the surrounding skin tissue. Because of concerns regarding serious allergic reactions, those considering bovine-based injections will usually first undergo an allergy test before treatment. Human-based collagen injections do not need an allergy test.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid injections, sold under the brand names Dermalive, HylaForm, Juvaderm and Restylane, are another alternative to Botox. Hyaluronic acid is part of synovial fluid, that when injected underneath wrinkles has the ability to fill in the excess space left behind by collagen and elastin that has broken down.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Alpha hydroxy acid is another form of wrinkle treatment. Alpha hydroxy acids, such as lactic or glycolic acids, are commonly used as chemical peeling agents. When placed on wrinkled skin they accelerate the removal of dead skin cells from the body. This reveals the younger looking new skin cell growth below, which can reduce the prominence of wrinkles.

Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures- wrinkle injections

Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures- wrinkle injections

Botox Toronto & ThornhillAs humans, we show our emotions on our faces. When we are happy, we smile. When we are perplexed or upset, we frown. And until recently, those emotions made an indelible and unwanted imprint on our facial skin that we call wrinkles.

You can now enjoy a very effective treatment for the lessening the facial lines we all develop over time. Facial wrinkle treatments can dramatically reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles.

Wrinkle injections can relax facial muscles resulting in noticeably diminished lines , often within days of the first treatment.


This simple, non-surgical, inexpensive procedure takes only about ten minutes. In fact, many patients conveniently fit their treatments in during a lunch hour since the procedure is practically painless and there is no down time needed for recovery. The effects of a single treatment can last up to four months. Repeat treatments may result in effects that last up to six months at a time.

Minor side effects of treatment include a slight, temporary drooping of the eyelid, and some patients may experience tenderness, swelling, redness or bruising in conjunction with the injection. Use of an ice pack should help ease any brief discomfort.

As with most facial rejuvenation treatments, the best results are being enjoyed when treatments are begun before deep furrows have had time to form.

A study conducted by an American Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon - Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeons found that Neuromodulaters can actually prevent the signs of aging when treatments are begun earlier in life. The study followed twin sisters over thirteen years beginning at age 25 when one of them began receiving treatments. It was clear at the end of the study, that the twin who had received regular injections did not have frown lines and her crow’s feet were less visible than the untreated twin’s.

Solomon Facial Cosmetic Surgery provides treatments with wrinkle reduction Cosmetic injections in our Thornhill and Toronto, Ontario, Canada location. The treatments are performed by either Dr. Philip Solomon – who has been doing cosmetic injections for more than a decade – as well as his clinics highly trained aesthetic nurses.

Dr. Solomon will determine the appropriate dosing for each individual patient and then establish a regular treatment schedule with his staff to keep you appearing fresh throughout the year.

The 5 Questions I Get Asked Most Frequently About Facial Cosmetic wrinkle Injections and How I Respond

At Dr Solomon Facial Cosmetic Surgery Centre Thornhill Ontario Canada

Facial wrinkle injections are an inexpensive and minimally invasive treatment that can help almost anyone look years younger, so it's no wonder its popularity is on the rise.

Although there are many reasons patients consider treatments, there is one compelling motivator.

The treatments are quick, virtually painless and often produce dramatic results.

Here are the top 5 questions I get asked most often by people considering treatments:

1. How Long Does It Take to Start Working?

It takes approximately 5 days for the medicine to cause the treated muscles to relax. The creases should then begin to smooth out in 1 to 2 weeks. If you have deep creases, it may take a bit longer for the skin to "flatten" out.

2. Are treatments painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

3. How long does it last?

The effect usually lasts 3 to 5 months when used to correct wrinkles of the face. First time patients may see the effects subside closer to 3 -4 months while repeat users may enjoy the effects for up to 6 months.

4. Will I experience any side effects?

While side effects are uncommon, they can be treated when they do occur. The most common side effect following injection is a temporary change in position of the eyebrow. Temporary eyelid droop can also occur and can be corrected with eye drops until the effect subsides. In some cases, localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.

5. Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?

Although the results are visible, cosmetic injection treatment will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had something done."

Although the results are visible due to the muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows being reduced, you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

Sanofi’s Genzyme Sues Allergan for Royalties on Juvederm-used for wrinkle injections

Sanofi’s Genzyme Sues Allergan for Royalties on Juvederm

Sanofi-Aventis SA (SAN)’s Genzyme unit sued Allergan Inc. for patent royalties on sales of wrinkle filler Juvederm.
Genzyme, which has a patent for a gel used to augment soft tissue, claims Irvine, California-based Allergan has refused to make payments for sales of Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC. Genzyme is demanding compensation and an order blocking further use of its invention without permission, according to the complaint today in federal court in Boston.
Allergan, which also makes the Botox treatment, had been paying Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Genzyme on a patent that expired in July 2010, according to the complaint. Genzyme sued because Allergan declined a request to continue paying the same royalties through the March 2012 expiration of a second patent.
Allergan is reviewing the complaint and has no comment, said Caroline Van Hove, a spokeswoman for the company.
Juvederm is an injection to fill in wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Allergan doesn’t break out sales of the product.
Paris-based Sanofi, France’s biggest drugmaker, bought Genzyme last month for about $20 billion.
The case is Genzyme Corp. v. Allergan Inc., 11cv10868, U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts (Boston).

Wrinkle Injections Versus Facial Plastic Surgery

Wrinkle Injections Versus Facial Plastic Surgery

http://www.zimbio.com/Plastic+Surgery/articles/ltqxDcT2REc/Wrinkle+Injections+Versus+Facial+Plastic+Surgery

Many men and women in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s find themselves wondering how they can reduce the signs of aging by tightening the skin and treating facial wrinkles. There are thousands of products on the market that claim they can rejuvenate the face and make people look years younger.

From facial creams, masques, exfoliates, and serums to Botox injections and dermal fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm to facial plastic surgery lifting procedures, there are so many choices available today. This can make it difficult for consumers to determine which treatments are right for their individual flaws and goals.

Botox Injections

Botox treatment is designed to paralyze facial muscles and relax the skin, resulting in a more wrinkle-free appearance. Because Botox treatment does not require actual surgery, many patients choose to have this non-invasive procedure performed rather than undergoing plastic surgery.

Dermal Fillers

Because Botox is derived from botulism poison and paralyzes the facial muscles, many men and women prefer to undergo dermal filler treatments instead of Botox injections. Dermal fillers fill in lines with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other materials to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Facial treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, laser skin tightening, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion can improve the tone and texture of skin. Like Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers, these skin treatments are non-invasive and patients experience little pain and downtime following these procedures.

Facial Plastic Lifting Procedures

Plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, browlift, and eyelid surgery are an excellent treatment for men and women who have areas with deep wrinkles or excessive sagging of the skin. Plastic surgery lifting treatments will provide more noticeable results for a longer period of time. To find out if you are a good candidate for a facial rejuvenation procedure, consult a local plastic surgeon or dermatologist to discuss possible treatment options and your personal aesthetic goals.

Botox or Better Wrinkle Injections for the Neck

Wrinkle Injections for the Neck Overview


Aging of the skin is caused by genetic factors or by external influences, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. During aging, thinning of the skin and slower production of collagen and elastic fibers cause wrinkles to develop. External factors that speed aging of skin include sun exposure, repetitive facial movements and smoking. The skin on the face and neck is especially prone to wrinkles because it receives more sun exposure than other body parts.



Collagen

Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes up 80 percent of the total volume of the skin. It helps attach skin to the underlying connective tissue and bones and it keeps the skin supple and firm. Collagen does not last forever but turns over slowly with new collagen replacing the old. As we age, collagen breaks down more quickly and gets replaced more slowly. As a result, a smaller supply of collagen exists in older skin. This makes older skin more likely to sag and to form wrinkles.



Collagen Injections

One approach to remove wrinkles from the neck or face is injection of collagen to fill out the skin and smooth its surface. Collagen fillers contain either human or bovine collagen and both of these are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for this use, according to the FDA. A dermatologist performs collagen injections in the office with a local anesthetic added to the collagen to minimize pain. Discomfort is minimal, according to the Consumer Guide to Plastic Surgery, and any swelling should disappear within two days. Results are apparent right away and typically last two to three months.



Other Cosmetic Fillers

Several other injectable fillers might improve the appearance of the neck. These include restylane, a hyaluronic acid gel that is a natural product that binds water, and calcium hydroxyapatite, another natural filler used in gel form. When injected, each of these compounds plumps the skin and relieves wrinkling. Another approach is injection of synthetic micro-spheres that are biocompatable, according to the FDA, and are not absorbed by the body so they remain permanently in place.



Botox for Wrinkle Injections:

Contraction of muscles under the skin can also cause wrinkles. Botox is an injectable drug that paralyzes muscles and reduces wrinkling in the overlying skin. According to the Consumer Guide to Cosmetic Surgery, Botox reduces wrinkles by 80 percent and the effect lasts up to five months. Botox injection is an office procedure and several injections are sometimes performed. Botox is also injected to relax vertical bands of muscle that appear in the neck of an older person. Although the FDA has only approved Botox for treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows, doctors nevertheless use it often for other purposes such as injections into the neck.

Risks and Side Effects

Injection of a cosmetic filler or of Botox carries a risk of infection, bruising or an allergic reaction leading to a rash. Occasionally bumps of skin called nodules may form that might require surgical removal. Rarely, injection into a blood vessel may cause skin death and some disfiguring. Anyone with a known allergy to cow proteins or to the anesthetic lidocaine should avoid collagen injections. In addition, Botox carries a risk of headache, nausea or flu-like symptoms. The FDA warns of a potentially serious, life-threatening risk if Botox spreads too far from the injection site. However, it states that typical use of Botox for cosmetic purposes is generally safe.

Will Muscle Relaxing Injections Make Me Look 10 Years Younger?

Will Muscle Relaxing Injections Make Me Look 10 Years Younger?

A commonly asked question for any cosmetic doctor is ‘will muscle relaxing injections make me look 10 years younger?” There is, alas, no definitive answer to that question. Muscle relaxing injections, there’s no doubt, are the 21st century miracle for reducing facial wrinkles and creases, but to quantify exactly the number of years it will appear to turn back the clock for each person is patently impossible.
This is because many extraneous factors come into play. How deep are your wrinkles, how long have they been there, how extensive is the wrinkling on your face? This answer will be different for each person, so it is only logical that the results will vary

What would be fair and true and certainly more precise is to state that muscle relaxing injections will make you look younger – but just how many years younger is dependent on those extraneous factors. The deeper the creases and wrinkles in your face, the younger you will look afterwards. Conversely, shallower creases and wrinkles, which will also react positively to the muscle relaxing injection will give you a younger, yet more subtle look.

How well you respond to this medi-cosmetic treatment, as well as how effectively it is administered, are also elements that play into how much younger you will ultimately look.
It would be wise for you to do a little investigation before you throw yourself onto the comfy couch in your cosmetic doctor’s office. Ask some questions of him or her first, such as how long have they been doing these treatments, and how often – is it regularly, or once in a blue moon? How much of the product does he or she envision you will need?

Ideally, you are looked for an experienced cosmetic doctor who understands the interplay between the drug and the nerve endings in your face. You also want a cosmetic doctor who will be perfectly and totally honest with you, rather than one who makes claims that may raise your expectations too much.
In the vast majority of cases, muscle relaxing injections will make you look younger by giving you smoother, more natural-looking skin. That’s why it is so popular in Dublin and all around the world.

What will make you look 10 years younger is the smile that you’ll get on your face when someone tells you that you look marvellous… though they can’t quite put their finger on why it is. It’ll be our little secret.

The Difference Between Muscle-Relaxing Injections and Dermal Fillers

 
Enquiring minds want to know, “what is the difference between muscle-relaxing injections and dermal fillers?” Stop wrinkling your brow and wonder no more, you don’t want those lines to become permanent, do you, so you end up looking like Gordon Ramsay?

Dermal fillers are types of injectable cosmetics, intended to provide temporary solutions to minor facial skin problems and skin irregularities. Injected just under the skin by a qualified medical practitioner, dermal fillers can smooth out lines, creases and wrinkles by, well, filling them in or plumping them up. The most common dermal filler in use is a brand called Restylane. This has been around much longer than most of the other brands, and has a very good safety profile.
Muscle-relaxing injections (which are derived from Botulinum Toxin A, but don’t be worried as it’s perfectly safe in this form) are very effective as an anti wrinkle treatment, and is also introduced to the face via injection. Muscle-relaxing injections effectively relax your facial muscles (including, perhaps, the ones that are creating those creases in your forehead from wondering too much) and smoothes out your skin, eliminating deeper lines, creases and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are more suitable for individuals wanting to get rid of lines and creases that are not too deep, or reduce the appearance of other facial skin imperfections, such as scars from acne spots. Dermal fillers are also very popular for non-surgically filling in dips and depressions on the nose bridge. Fillers also can be used for plumping up lips that are asymmetrical, or simply to give one more of a pout. There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market, each with its own particular benefits and/or shortcomings.
Muscle-relaxing injections are generally the choice of discerning men and women who are trying to eliminate facial lines and wrinkles that are more apparent than mere creases in the skin. Your cosmetic doctor will assess whether muscle-relaxing injections or dermal fillers are more suitable for you. The choice of which one to use is dependent on the positioning, severity and depth of your wrinkles.
As a general rule of thumb, the wrinkles around and between your eyes and on your forehead are usually treated with muscle-relaxing injections. Folds around your mouth and chin are usually treated by dermal fillers.'

Muscle-relaxing injections and dermal fillers are used to treat different areas and issues. However, in terms of their longevity, both muscle-relaxing injections and dermal fillers are temporary resolutions to the problems of ageing, offering a three to six month respite from wrinkles, before needing to be repeated.

Consider the Effects of other Medication with Wrinkle Injections

Important to have wrinkle injections by a Doctor-Other drugs will affect Botox?

Wrinkle injections are used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles.One of the first questions posed by patients is the cost of wrinkle injections.It should not be the most important factor. Ultimately it is the results that are most important. You are having a doctor performing a procedure on you that will alter your appearance for many months.
Women with curved brows need a little extra  Botox® or perhaps Dysport® to avoid flattening the eyebrow.
Other medications such as cold or allergy medicine, muscle relaxers, sleeping pills, bronchodilators, bladder or urinary medicines, and irritable bowel medicines can increase some of the side effects of Botox. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medications.
Tell your doctor about all other medications you use, especially:
  • an injected antibiotic such as amikacin (Amikin), gentamicin (Garamycin), kanamycin (Kantrex), neomycin (Mycifradin, Neo-Fradin, Neo-Tab), paromomycin (Humatin, Paromycin), streptomycin, tobramycin (Nebcin, Tobi).
This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with Botox. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
The product is a natural purified protein. The product is restricted to use by medical practitioners and as such the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) restricts the promotional use of the product name in Australia (Section 42DL (1) (f) of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989).

Wrinkle Injections: Options to choose from to get that Perfect Skin You have Always Wanted

Too tired of trying out too many skin care products that only promise beauty but not the reality? If you are too scared to have your skin undergo the rigors of laser resurfacing, another alternative is the method of wrinkle injections. It is another invasive skin therapy that guarantees the most successful of results without experiencing too much pain.
Botox injection is apparently the most popular of these methods, it is actually a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The Food and Drugs Administration have approved the use of this chemical substance in the area of cosmetics especially those of wrinkle reduction. As one of the most popular wrinkle injections, botox were found to benefit individuals with wrinkle problems in the upper part of their faces, around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and those awful looking horizontal wrinkles on the forehead. This type of treatment lasts for about three to four months depending on the amount of chemical that has been administered.
Hylaform injection on the other hand, is a popular filler especially used for the lips and cheeks area. This wrinkle formula gives immediate results once injected onto the dermis of the skin, where it binds with water that renders it to be easily absorbed by the skin. This type of treatment usually lasts for about six to twelve months before the skin goes back to its usual condition.
Restalyne injection is another type of wrinkles injections that is of hyaluronic acid filler type taken from the bacteria Streptococcus which has been approved by the FDA for human use. Individuals who would be subjecting their skins to this kind of anti-wrinkle treatment should always remember that this is not a permanent solution for skin problems, but rather of short-term type that needs to be replaced with time.

A Doctor’s Quick Guide to Face Wrinkle Injections

From a doctors point of view as well as better to begin the procedure in the heart of the upper face. It’s a bit as being a teacher in front of a class, evaluating things up, thinking ahead, patiently waiting to place your next question, maybe in this case needle. A doctor must always ask the leading question “what technique do you want your brows to take a look next week?” From a people point of view consider the doctor is similar to a man with a tranquilliser gun investigating a tug-of-war team. If she or he shoots some of the players within Team A, then Power team B will fall within the line without even trying. Its exactly the same with Botox® or Dysport®. An individual’s brows will end up in a final location dependent on the doctor with the hook. Now there are a few variations upon that theme. If you are quick sighted and squinting for years then you will get beefed up the muscles that yank the eye down. Let’s give them a call the “Orbies” because you better familiarize yourself with the muscles if you want to succeed in this game. They are basically called the Orbicularis oculi but leave the fact that to the young student health professionals trying to impress their physiology teachers. The orbies pull decrease and cause wrinkles, crows foot to be exact. They are for example Team A pulling aside at the brow to bring the item down and make you look worn-out. Now, I hear you’re thinking that..if I do look drained and want to look more alert could the doctor tranquillise these and even waken me up.

You see, you will get the hang of it already. If ever the doctor is heavy passed on the orbies or else does not plough the muscle above it, these folks the eyebrow will rise. Why don’t we get to know the muscles over the brow. These muscular areas are called the “Fronties” or frontalis and are generally responsible for the expression regarding surprise whenever we open up the eyes in amazement. As expected, you see the problem whenever Movie actresses lose this exercise: no expression, blank look etc etc. They are also responsible for resulting in the ‘Vulcan’ look whenever the exterior edge of the brows comes up in true Star Journey fashion. But don’t stress, this is easily corrected giving a little more tranquilliser to the outer fronties.

Men commonly need more Botox® or Dysport® than women
Women together with strong muscles may require far more Botox® or Dysport® than men
Women with curved brows need a little extra corrie Botox® or perhaps Dysport® to avoid flattening the eyebrow.
Men need a little more Botox® or Dysport® during the super sillies and corries than women of all ages but they same in the prossies.

Sydney Wrinkle Injections -

One of the first questions posed by patients is the cost of wrinkle injections.It should not be the most important factor. Ultimately it is the results that are most important. You are having a doctor performing a procedure on you that will alter your appearance for many months.
It is a potent medicine derived from Wrinkle Injections Toxin Type A and requires your practitioner to have a sound knowledge of the anatomy and physiology in the area. Having said this, wrinkle injections are no longer to domain of the rich and famous.
Wrinkle Injections medicine is being used by school teachers, by mothers, by carpenters and by office workers. Essentially anybody who is concerned about their own appearance. And not everyone has a seven figure bank account. And in these days, not even the CEO of Macquarie Bank belongs to this rarefied clique.

Scared Of Needles? A Topical Botox Might Be Coming

Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel is Chief of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and a professor at the Boston University School of Medicine with appointments in the Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery and the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Please email us at info@drspiegel.com for more information.
 If you are scared of needles don’t worry because you are not alone. Many people who decide to pursue injectables often times cringe when they think about having to go under the needle. There might be a solution to this problem very shortly down the road. According to The American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery researchers are getting very close to a topical form of the popular injectable, Botox. A topical form of Botox has been underway for some time now especially for the areas of the face where the skin tends to be very thin.
“This is a good first study,” an expert told the news source. “The idea of [topical Botox] has been talked about for a while. It looks promising. The crow’s feet area is the logical place to start because the skin is thin there. It could work eventually in other areas, with this type of transdermal delivery.”
For those of you who are deathly afraid of needles there is still no date set to when this form of Botox might hit the shelves of your local plastic surgery center but advancements are getting closer. I assume many more rounds of studies and testing before it can be applied to the masses.

Restylane off-label for lip augmentation - FDA now approved

On April 27, 2011 the FDA has finally made a decision to approve the use of Restylane for all lip augmentation procedures.
“Practitioners may not have to use Restylane off-label for lip augmentation any longer. On April 27, 2011, an FDAn panel voted 6-0 with 1 abstention that benefits outweigh risks for using the filler as a submucosal injection for lip augmentation.
The panel also voted 6-0 with 1 abstention that the filler is safe and effective for the expanded indication.
Restylane (Medicis Aesthetics) is a hyaluronic acid gel generated by Streptococcus bacteria, chemically crosslinked with 1,4 butanediol diglycidyl ether. The filler was first approved in 2005 for mid-to-deep dermal implantation for the correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.”On April 27, 2011 the FDA has finally made a decision to approve the use of Restylane for all lip augmentation procedures.

Restylane has been growing in popularity over some of it’s competitors like Juvéderm®Radiesse® and Sculptra® in the dermal filler category and this advancement for the brand will make great strides in the plastic surgery community.
“Medicis recently conducted a clinical study (MA-1399-15) to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the filler in the augmentation of soft tissue fullness of the lips. The study included 135 patients, who received lip augmentation with Restylane, and 45 patients with no treatment. The mean volume of filler was 2.9 cc per patient, with a range of 0.6-5.6 cc per patient. At 8 weeks, 92% of patients who received Restylane were considered responders”

    Botox also is widely used by physicians for unapproved, "off-label" treatment of muscle spasticity in adults and children with cerebral palsy. Extremely high doses of Botox are injected into the bodies of cerebral palsy patients to control the involuntary muscle movements and rigidity associated with the disorder.
    These large doses of the drug can quickly spread inside the body from the injection site to the lungs and throat, where Botox can interfere with or stop breathing, swallowing, and other vital bodily functions. Some cerebral palsy patients, particularly young children, have died or suffered life-threatening complications after Botox injections spread through their bodies and caused respiratory failure.
    In April 2009, the Food and Drug Administration ordered the makers of Botox and similar drugs to issue stronger warnings about the risk of respiratory failure and death when the drug spreads through the body.

    If you or a loved one has died or been injured as a result of Botox treatments, we encourage you to seek legal help as soon as possible to determine and evaluate your possible legal rights to financial compensation.
