Say Goodbye to Stomach Fat with Just an Injection – The Kybella Treatment

January 25, 2018

The Kybella treatment is made up of one powerful injection. As of the moment, it is the only injectable treatment approved by FDA to be used to reduce the fat under the chin, to eliminate what is more commonly known as the “double chin”. However, dermatologists and aestheticians worldwide are slowly recognizing Kybella injections for other uses, not just to eliminate the fat under the chin, but also other parts of the body. Say goodbye to flabby arms, thigh saddlebags, love handles and more. How Does the Kybella Treatment Work? Kybella is actually a component called deoxycholate which is very similar to what our gallbladder produces. This component is made into an injectable form, and, once injected, it begins to…

Can You Really Go Blind from A Radiesse Injection?

January 19, 2018

A new study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery recently had pointed out quite problematic side effects possible when you get dermal fillers, like the Radiesse injection. The study involved a look into procedures done from 2014 to 2016 involving different kinds of dermal fillers, not only Radiesse and here’s what they found out: The side effects are very minimal. They have concluded that the fillers themselves, are safe, and pose only a few adverse effects – most of them not permanent. Dermal fillers have been used for several years now for different reasons. Wrinkle reduction. Lip filler. Cheek filler. Nasal shaping. These are but a few of the many things that dermal fillers can do. Of all…

Does Microneedling Work? Let’s Find Out!

January 11, 2018

Microneedling is not a new treatment. Its predecessor, microdermabrasion has been a popular skin renewal treatment since the nineties – and it’s still being used today! Microneedling, though, goes a step beyond microdermabrasion, and we’re going to discuss just that in this short article today and more! What is Microneedling? Microneedling, much like microdermabrasion, works by wounding the top surface of the skin. The main difference though is that while microdermabrasion uses abrasive crystals, microneedling on the other hand uses hundreds of needles. These needles are attached to either a handheld tool or a special pen, which are then applied to the skin’s surface. This in turn creates small puncture wounds on the outer layers of the skin. Sounds pretty…

Acne and Scar Removal Treatment: The Sure-Fire Ways to Liberate Yourself from Acne Scars In 2018!

January 5, 2018

It’s 2018 already, and today, we are going to talk about Acne and Scar Removal Treatment. Acne is a pain, but do you know what’s worse? The curse that comes after. Acne scarring no matter how faint or how severe is always detrimental to one’s self esteem. Who would have thought that popping that zit way back during your puberty days would haunt you for life? And don’t get me wrong. Adults are still prone to get acne from time to time. Hormonal changes brought about by pregnancy, for instance, can cause severe acne later in life, and can consequently lead to acne scars. Here are the different types of acne. But don’t worry. Here are three sure-fire ways to…

The laser hair removal treatment is all the rave right now because it promises one thing: no more hair growth in the future. Sounds miraculous isn’t it?

Things to Consider Before Getting a Microblading Treatment

December 21, 2017

Getting a microblading treatment sounds a bit scary because of the word blade on it, but in reality, it doesn’t really have anything to do with small blades. Rather, it has to do something about your eyebrows looking fabulous. If you feel overwhelmingly jealous with Cara Delevigne, for instance, then you are in the right path. Wikipedia Image There are a few things that you have to consider, though, before getting this treatment. Allow us to enlighten you on some of them. Is microblading like getting an eyebrow tattoo? Yes and no. Microblading eyebrows is very different from getting an eyebrow tattoo. First, it is not as permanent. Getting an eyebrow tattoo really is like getting a tattoo done elsewhere…

The Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Gives a Glimmer of Hope for Cancer Patients

December 15, 2017

If there is one thing that most cancer patients have in common, aside from the challenge that is cancer, it is the mark that radiation treatment leaves in the body. We are not talking about hair or weight loss. We are talking about literal marks – the black dots, 4 millimeter in size, which served as radiation markers placed on the body in order to align the dose of radiation that the body receives every treatment procedure. These dots are vital since they ensure that the body receives a radiation dose right at the same exact target every single session. For everyone, cancer is definitely a life-changing experience, something from which everyone can learn a lot from, but at the…

Droopy Eyelids: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

December 7, 2017

Most of us get droopy eyelids after a night of partying. This is natural – our eyelids are just tired and heavy from all that drinking and dancing! But for some, that is not the case. It is already a case of ptosis, more commonly known as droopy eyelids. Droopy eyelids may be caused by a number of reasons. Here are a few of them: As we age, our skin gets saggy and the muscles loosen up. This includes the muscles and skin that hold our eyelids up. This can also cause the eyes to look sad all the time, this condition aptly named, weepy eyes. You’re born with it. Some people are just born with droopy eyelids, right from…

Botox Injections for TMJ? Yes, It Works!

December 4, 2017

Botox injections or just Botox for treatment is not new to us anymore. After all, it’s been in the cosmetic scene for more than a decade now as a miracle wonder worker for wrinkles. TMJ disorder, on the other hand is an entirely different thing. What Is TMJ Disorder? Image from http://www.acuityortho.com/nightguards-tmj-disorders-tmj-treatment TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder is no laughing matter. It is a kind of headache that starts small, but can suddenly take a turn for the worst feeling like a searing pain shooting through your head. Patients usually report a pain in the jaw before the initial migraine, but it starts so faint that people usually never associate the jaw pain and the headache related. But it is. The…

Women Getting Scalp Botox? You Would Not Believe Their Reason For It!

December 1, 2017

To be honest, especially if you are going to ask around, why many women would want to get scalp Botox injections, most of them would say that they would not know what to feel about it. Even other physicians find the procedure rather unusual. So Why Would Women Have Botox Injected Into Their Scalp In The First Place? Well, we asked some women who had this procedure before (and most of them are still getting the treatment done every now and then) why they opted to have Botox injected into their scalp. And while they gave us different reasons why they had the procedure done, they all had a common denominator. Sweat. You read it right, sweat. Sweaty hair which…
