Botox and Dermal Fillers For a More Youthful Look
The number one non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the Unites States is a simple 10 minute procedure where you inject Botox or Dysport. Botox has been used for years in Hollywood (off label) and was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in April 2002 to treat moderate to severe frown lines and Dysport was FDA approved in April 2009.
So, you are wondering… What Is Botox or Dysport? Botox and Dysport is a purified protein produced by botulinum bacteria and works by blocking the communication between nerves and muscles. The nerves are simply unable to tell the muscles to contract. When muscles are not able to contract, the appearance of wrinkles minimize and wrinkles even even disappear, in some patients. Another popular procedure that rejuvenates with minimal downtimeis the use of dermal fillers, which include: Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse and Juvederm. These fill in wrinkles and provide volume. According to Rhonda Narins, MD, professor of dermatology at NY Medical Center in New York City, that’s just the beginning. “What’s really significant is that we can now use these fillers to volumize skin anywhere on the face, so you can really sculpt a lifted, youthful look without surgery,” according to Narins. It is exciting to know that you cannow soften the signs of aging with a wide range of non-surgical procedures for the face in a matter of a few minutes. Areas on the face that are commonlyfilled with dermal fillers and some other uses of fillers, include:• Nasal labial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth)• Lines above the upper and lower lips (“smoker’s lines”)• Lift corners of lips• Marionette lines (lines on the corners of the chin)• Around and under the eyes• Volumize cheeks, lips and chin• Correct facial asymmetryThe newest and latest “craze” when using fillers is a procedure called the “liquid lift” or injectible thread lift. The thread lift is where you use a variety of fillers to lift the desired area – areas on the face including the eyebrows, jowls, lips and corners of the mouth. Ultimately, dermal fillers help stimulate your body’s own natural collagen production to help maintain a more youthful glow.
What are Acne Scars?Acne scars are very common and they are a result of inflammation caused by acne within the epidermis and dermis of the skin. Acne not only affects teenagers, sometimes people go thru hormonal changes in their 30’s and 40’s and they suffer from active acne that can form into scars. Acne may last for a few months or a few years but once the acne lesion heals it may leave behind a scar that can be an indention within the skin or hyper pigmentation marks that may be red or brown in color.
Scars are formed in a couple of ways and typically there is a loss of tissue (indented scar) or there is a formation of new tissues over the skin (hypertrophic or keloid acne scar). The loss of tissue may result in depressed areas, ice pick scars or round pitted lesions on the skin.
What Can be Done to Treat Acne Scars?
Acne scars that cause hyper pigmentation or discoloration of the skin can be treated effectively with Retinoid creams (i.e. Retin-A) and Hydroquinone(lightening cream). Chemical Peels such as the ViPeel and that contain TCA and Phenol go a step further in rejuvenation the skin. The peels are also extremely effective in revitalizing the damaged skin thru a peeling process which allows room for new cell growth. Results from Chemical Peels are typically seen within 1 week.
Acne scars that have loss of tissue such as ice pick scars, depressed and pitted scars are treated effectively by laser fractional resurfacing. The Fractional CO2 is an ablative laser that uses carbon dioxide and the laser precisely and evenly ablates the surface of the skin, layer by layer, permitting clear definition of landmarks and optimal depth control. The laser resurfaces only a “fraction” of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact for faster healing. The CO2 fractional laser pokes tiny microscopic holes in the skin down past the epidermis and into the dermis. These holes cause new collagen to be generated which fills in the acne scars and creates rejuvenated smoother skin. Most patients start to notice improvements in their skin as early as 1 week after the treatment. Continued improvements occur for the next 6 months and peak at around month 6.
