Bellafill® offers a new level of filler rejuvenation.

 The collagen gel immediately adds volume to smooth away facial wrinkles known as smile lines, and the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres help your skin re-create its own firmer structure for beautiful, younger-looking skin and lasting results.

How Botox Injections Work?

A wrinkle in the skin is typically formed perpendicular to a contracting muscle located directly beneath it. For example, the muscle in the forehead is a vertical muscle, and when it contracts (such as when you raise your eyebrows), the lines that form (wrinkles) will be horizontal.

Botox is not a dermal filler. Instead, it blocks nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract and cause forehead wrinkles.
Likewise, the two muscles that are responsible for the frown lines are positioned slightly horizontally between the eyebrows, so when they contract, the frown lines appear vertical.

Botox Cosmetic is injected into muscles, where it blocks nerve impulses to those tissues. The muscle activity that causes the frown lines is reduced, and a smoother look results. Without a contracting muscle beneath it, the skin has a difficult time wrinkling.

Facial lines that exist when your face is totally relaxed are not very good candidates for Botox. These lines are better handled by the dermal fillers. Botox can frequently "soften" these lines but not always get rid of them.

The injections take about 10 minutes, and you should have no downtime afterward.

Normally you would see improvement within a few days. Botox requires two to four days for it to attach to the nerve ending that would normally stimulate the muscle to contract. The maximum effect usually occurs at about 10-14 days. Therefore, whatever effect is obtained two weeks after the injections should be considered the maximum effect that is going to occur.

Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

Kids aren’t just “little adults.” Children are especially vulnerable to the effects of chemicals, and preventing early-life exposures to harmful chemicals can help prevent health problems throughout their lives. 
Despite these concerns, children’s cosmetic products — like the ones we tested — contain carcinogens and hormone disrupting chemicals. Tell Congress: Cancer-Chemicals & Heavy Metals Don’t Belong in Kid’s Face Paint or Makeup!

Neauvia in the Prime Journal

Talking deeply about Neauvia wide range of fillers in the latest issue of Prime Journal, the International journal of Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing medicine.

Application Skin lifting, firmness, and elasticity NEAUVIA ORGANIC range of fillers is crosslinked with PEG, an outstanding new technology able to give the products a high safety and tolerability profile. Each reference of the filler line has a specific rheology, due to the particular chemical geometry and the real polymeric technology, to be effective and perfectly integrated in different anatomical planes. The high viscoelasticity and cohesivity of Neauvia INTENSE LINE promote an important tissue bio-integration of the medium and deep planes together with a high lifting power and a long-lasting effect.

 The polymeric 3D architecture containing CaHA of Neauvia STIMULATE LINE shows a scaffold-like action promoting a slow release of the microparticles, with a size of 10–12 microns, blocked in the hydrogel clusters, thereby activating the fibroblastic components at the metabolic level. The range is completed with a CaHA suspension in a linear hyaluronic acid filler with high viscosity for superficial correction and stimulation: the HYDRODELUXE LINE.

Facial Rejuvenation May Involve More ...

Facial Rejuvenation May Involve More Than Skin Tightening

Facial Rejuvenation May Involve More Than Skin Tightening | eReport | Plastic Surgery Practice

Most people worry about developing wrinkles and want to delay the effects of aging as much as possible to ensure they look their best. However, a new study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology may prove there are more drawbacks to having wrinkles than just the aesthetics.

Botulinum Toxin Injections Between the Brows Produce Significant Patient Satisfaction Rates

Botulinum toxin type A injections are the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. There were 4.3 million procedures performed in 2015 accounting for 42 percent of all cosmetic procedures in that year, based on the Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, (ASAPS). According to a 2016 study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the official publication of ASAPS, patient satisfaction with their overall facial appearance increased by 28 percent with injections to the so-called “11s” (the glabellar rhytids, which are the lines that appear between the brows as we age).
The satisfaction rate was determined based on participating patients’ completion of the FACE-Q survey, a newly developed and validated patient-reported outcome instrument that can be used for measuring a patient’s own perceptions of cosmetic facial procedures. The survey consists of 63 questions asking patients to evaluate their overall appearance, age appearance, and the appearance of cheeks, nasolabial folds, lower face and jawline, chin and neck.
Dr. Daniel C. Mills, president of ASAPS states, “The results of this study are not surprising and validate what we’ve suspected for quite some time. I see an ever-increasing influx of patients in my practice in Laguna Beach, California requesting botulinum toxin type A injections to the area between the brows and other areas on the face, like the crow’s feet and forehead as a preventative anti-aging or pre-aging measure from patients in their 20s up to their 70s. It’s a quick nonsurgical fix that packs a powerful punch. This new study reaffirms the efficacy of botulinum toxin type A and the satisfaction it brings to patients.”
The study’s authors examined 57 female patients who completed the FACE-Q survey. After the baseline survey, the patients received injections of one brand of botulinum toxin type A, (Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) in the region between the brows. Two weeks post-injection, the patients completed the FACE-Q survey again. The percentage changes in patient responses from the first to second surveys were assessed to determine how the injections affected patient satisfaction with their facial appearance.
Patients stated that they believe they look an average of 5.6 years younger post-injection with any of the botulinum toxin type A products. The average age of the 57 patients with pre- and post-neurotoxin FACE-Q responses was 49.6 years (range of 32-75 years old).
“This indicates that patients’ satisfaction with their overall facial appearance was statistically significantly greater after receiving the injections, and certainly accounts for the continued success of neurotoxin popularity to reduce the signs of aging,” states Dr. Ivona Percec, the study’s senior author.
