Do I Need Dermal Fillers, Botox®, or Both?

*  Stars

With the wide variety of wrinkle treatments on the market, it can be hard to sort them all out. Some procedures are intended to correct the underlying cause of facial lines and wrinkles. Other treatments are designed to address the symptoms themselves. Both dermal fillers and Botox® are minimally-invasive and can be done with a quick in-clinic visit without the need for any downtime.

Thermage Treatment – Effective Skin Tightening and wrinkle reduction

*  Stars

What is Thermage  Treatment and how does it work? Thermage  treatment is a non-surgical treatment that is clinically proven to tighten skin and achieve noticeable wrinkle reduction. Patented, FDA approved radio frequency technology is used to stimulate the tightening of the collagen strands in your skin as well as stimulating the production of new collagen. This works as the target area is first cooled before heat is then applied. One of the main causes of premature ageing is the loss of collagen in the body and so this treatment is designed to restore that loss. Some of the most commonly targeted areas for this type of procedure include the forehead, neck and jowls. Due to the non-invasive nature of this type of procedure, there is no downtime post-treatment and the results can last up to two years.

Can Sunscreen Prevent Cancer?

*  Stars

Skin Cancer And The Dangers Cancer, in its simplest form, is an abnormal growth of cells within our body is that is beyond our control. Therefore, with skin cancer, this growth occurs within our skin cells and is most commonly caused by UV radiation from sunlight and sun beds that damages the DNA in our skin cells beyond repair. This damage then initiates mutations and genetic defects, and the formation of malignant lesions begin to occur due to rapid multiplication of skin cells. Sunscreens, Creams And Lotions As the UV rays in sunlight are one of the main causes of skin cancer, the importance of skin protection is higher than ever. When possible, it is wise to cover up as much of your skin as you can when exposed to sunlight for prolonged amounts of time. Obviously this isn't always ideal in warmer weather conditions, which is when you need [...]

The Non-Invasive Treatment Revolution

Anti-Ageing Procedures Non-invasive treatments are ideal for those of us that perhaps possess a phobia or a reluctance to go under the knife. The method they use requires no incisions or removal of any body tissues. None of the tools used physically enter the body and may not break the skin, and so for these reasons, non-surgical procedures are becoming more and more popular. The ageing process can be slowed down and some visible effects can be reversed as treatments are becoming more and more accessible to the masses.

Is Summer A Good Time To Get Breast Implants?

The Best Time to Get Breast Implants To put it simply, you can undergo a breast augmentation procedure at any time of year as this will not have an impact on the quality of the results. What really needs to be considered in depth is the recovery period post-treatment. You need to ensure that you plan your breast enlargement around a period when you are certain you can book enough time off work in order to relax and allow time for your breasts to properly heal. In direct relation to the summer months, sunbathing is not recommended during the healing process and a lot of patients do favour treatment around this period as they are more likely to have free time and can relax guilt-free. In general, there is no exact time that is best to seek breast implants; it only comes down to what works best for you. Breast [...]

The Side Effects Of Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers Gone Wrong It is the same with any type of cosmetic procedure that you choose to undergo, there is usually minimum risk associated providing that you choose a reputable, qualified surgeon. In this case, the most common examples of dermal fillers "gone wrong" are when the patients perceive that they have not had enough due to under-treatment. This then leads to seeking further dermal fillers, which eventually leads to then having far too much. The results of this can appear extremely unnatural and, in some extreme cases, can even be life-threatening. Administering the fillers in the wrong places can cause skin to die entirely, but this is highly unlikely when you are in the capable hands of a professional surgeon.
