Hyaluronic Acid Fillers in Skin Rejuvanation
Bioengineered hyaluronic acid derivatives are currently available that provide for safe and effective soft-tissue augmentation in the comprehensive approach to nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Current hyaluronic acid fillers do not require preinjection skin testing and produce reproducible, longer-lasting, nonpermanent results compared with other fillers, such as collagen.
Bioengineered hyaluronic acid fillers allow for safe and effective augmentation of selected anatomical regions of the face, when properly administered. Combined treatment with botulinum toxin type A can enhance the effects and longevity by as much as 50 percent. Key components to optimal filler administration include proper anatomical evaluation, changing or combining various fillers based on particle size, altering the depth of injection, using different injection techniques, and coadministration of botulinum toxin type A when indicated. Concomitant administration of hyaluronic acid fillers along with surgical methods of facial rejuvenation can serve as a powerful tool in maximizing a comprehensive treatment plan.
Current techniques in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and shaping with hyaluronic acid fillers are safe, effective, and long-lasting. Combination regimens that include surgical facial rejuvenation techniques and/or coadministration of botulinum toxin type A further optimize results, leading to greater patient satisfaction.

How Microdermabrasion works?
Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It's being advanced as an "instant facelift" -- an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.
The skin is instantly rejuvenated by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without the use of chemicals or lasers and it’s virtually painless. It offers a modern and effective alternative to chemical and laser peels and can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the desired results. It’s most commonly used to treat the face and neck and immediately restores smoother looking skin and reduces the appearance of superficial wrinkles and scars, sun damage, large pores, acne and age spots.
Microdermabrasion is performed by passing a hand held device that emits a highly controlled pressurized flow of fine, medical grade crystals over the skin. These crystals, delivered at high velocity onto the skin surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. Rather like sandblasting the face, the crystals exfoliate the skin’s outer layer, improving the tone and texture of the skin and also revealing the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. Following microdermabrasion the skin is in a better condition to absorb anti-ageing and acne creams. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment and this promotes new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. As the treatment only causes superficial injury to the skin, the risk of scarring and uneven pigmentation following microdermabrasion is extremely low in comparison with other resurfacing techniques, making it a safe and effective treatment for any skin type.
It is recommended for All skin types. Treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne prone skin, sun damaged skin, blackheads, whiteheads, superficial age spots and pigmentation, oily, dry or patchy skin. As a result the new skin cells are revealed you will see an improvement in texture and overall appearance of the skin. Although a few treatments may be required, microdermabrasion is a simple, fast and effective way of reducing superficial skin damage to restore a refreshed and more youthful looking complexion.
One of the many advantages of microdermabrasion is that it can be used on all skin types with no recovery time needed post treatment. The skin can sometimes be red for a few hours following treatment but you can return to work immediately.

There are many reasons why someone should choose to invest in laser hair removal. For anyone wondering whether they should invest in the treatment, we discuss the main benefits and simple facts here.
For men and women out there who are sick and tired of having to shave every few days, laser hair removal is a good choice. Many men have this treatment done!
The treatment is very straightforward. You will have a briefing with the technician doing the procedure where you will discuss concerns, any questions you have and most of importantly the area you want treated after this the appointment will be made. Once you are at your appointment you will meet with the technician where the area will be shaved and cleaned where an anaesthetic cream will be applied, after this cream has absorbed slightly you will be ready for the procedure to begin.
You will know when the treatment has started as you will feel a tingling sensation, this should be painless and if anything you will only feel a slight discomfort. The tingling sensation is due to the highly concentrated beams that are absorbing pigments of hair follicles, damaging them which essentially is stopping the hair from growing. To make sure you are most comfortable another dose of anaesthetic will be applied to the area to prevent any further tingling sensations experienced.
This procedure will only last from a few minutes to up to an hour and this is all dependent on the area being treated; whether the area is large such as a back, or as small as facial hair being removed. The smaller the area, the quicker the procedure. This could all be done in a lunch break it’s that quick. However it may be advised you rest the treated area for a few hours afterward, this will allow it to settle as you will experience some after effects such as swelling and redness which are all very normal reactions.
The treatment will usually be over a course of 4-6sessions where usually people being treated will book an appointment once a month, where the treatment will then be completed quite quickly, as this will fit in with your everyday life and busy schedule. Those hard to reach places that are always a hassle will never be a problem again because laser hair removal can target many different areas of the body. Laser hair removal doesn’t just remove hair from legs and faces but can remove hair wherever you want; arm pits, arms, thighs, belly, back and so on making this solution perfect for the whole body.
