What is hyaluronic acid

Naturally present in the skin, hyaluronic acid maintains its hydration levels and contributes to its tone. It is a potent moisturising agent with a capacity to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

 The amount of hyaluronic acid in the dermis gradually decreases with age. As a result, the skin becomes dry and fragile and the first wrinkles appear. When it is injected into the dermis, Teosyal effectively compensates for this deficiency due to its high hyaluronic acid concentration.

What to consider before you have Botox

Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK. But with new products, which claim to offer similar benefits to Botox popping up each month, which factors should we take into account when considering targeting those dreaded frown lines?
Have you thought through having botox injections properly?Here, Dr Dennis Wolf, Joint Medical Director at The Private Clinic of Harley Street, gives us five pieces of advice about what we should consider when investing in wrinkle injections.
 1.       Choose your practitioner wisely
If you are considering investing in Botox or any form of anti-wrinkle injections, firstly you should ensure that the person treating you is a qualified practitioner. This rule applies to any form of cosmetic procedure. Research the practitioner online, ask questions and ask to see examples of their work. If you are not completely sure that the practitioner you are seeing is right for you, visit another.  Remember if it the treatment is being delivered in a back-room salon and the price seems too-good-to-be-true, then it usually is!!
2.       Choose the right product
You would be surprised how many patients I treat who do not pro-actively ask what the product is that I will be injecting into their face. Few people know that ‘Botox’ is the product name for Botulinum Toxin A (the product which is injected into the muscles of the face). This product has been around for more than 30 years and so we know a great deal about its capabilities and performance. There are, however, newer alternatives available, which some practitioners out there will be using. But while alternative products like Azzalure or Bocoutur, which can be injected to achieve similar results as Botox, do contain a lot of the same ingredients and are, in theory, a viable alternative if administered by a qualified practitioner, they are newer to the market and there might be less scientific evidence as to their efficacy.  Medical practitioners are, however, fully aware of the abilities of Botox, as well as the potential side effects, and so it remains arguably the most predictable, reliable product. As the patient, it is unlikely that you will know the precise differences between these competitor products, so it is important that you ask for clarification. Ask your practitioner to show you the product bottle and if they are using an alternative product to Botox, find out why and how that product differs.
3.       Be aware of the risks
Despite the fact that Botox is one of the safest non-surgical cosmetic treatments available, there remain potential risks associated with any procedure of this kind. While it is uncommon, a small number of people do not respond to Botox injections, while others experience some redness. Most side-effects are injector and dose related and the vast majority of patients never experience any side effects at all. Nonetheless it is important that you ask your practitioner prior to undergoing the procedure to discuss all of the potential drawbacks; only then will you be in a position to proceed fully informed.
4.       Be realistic in your expectations – don’t try to replicate a celebrity
Think carefully about why you are opting to undergo Botox and what you are hoping to achieve. Discuss with your practitioner your objectives and ask them to explain what you can expect from the procedure. Decide which areas to target and allow your practitioner to take a closer look at these areas. If you visit a practitioner having never undergone Botox before, then you should expect a full consultation, which outlines precisely how the procedure will work. And remember, every patient is different so trying to emulate the look of a celebrity or somebody else is never wise nor realistic. Your body is different to anyone else’s and while Botox will help to reduce the signs of lines and wrinkles, it will not transform you into a celebrity overnight.
5.       Remember ‘less’ is ‘more’
While Botox is one of the best methods of targeting lines and wrinkles, it is still important that your face looks natural and that you have a moderate range of movement and expression.  No-one wants a 'frozen' face!  Follow the practitioner’s guidance on the period of time to leave between procedures and do not ask for additional Botox to be administered against their guidance. The desired result is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to make you look healthier and well rested; it should not be immediately evident to other people that you have had any form of cosmetic procedure.

Advanced Anti-Ageing Skin Technology

Quinn Clinics Bristol and London Invest in Advanced Anti-Ageing Skin Technology

With over a million non-surgical skin treatments performed each year in the UK, the market remains buoyant despite the recession.
However, while traditional injectable options such as wrinkle-relaxing injections and facial fillers remain the most popular; there is a new breed of treatments using advanced anti-ageing technology that actually work to improve the condition of the skin itself.

Dr. John Quinn’s Bristol and London clinics have invested in the latest advances in skincare technology and offer an impressive array of options which use the latest approaches to skin science in order transform the condition and appearance of the skin.
Dr. Quinn explains: “Cosmetic injections are a wonderful way of ‘trouble-shooting’ the most obvious signs of ageing, tackling wrinkles and creases with remarkable results. They are popular simply because they work so well.”
“However, the latest advances in skin care technology mean that we are able to offer new options that work to improve the health, structure and appearance of the skin itself by stimulating the skin’s own renewal and healing processes for a firmer, clearer complexion with fewer fine lines.”
The clinic offers a choice of three advanced skincare technology systems, which work in different ways.
CO2 fractional laser is the very latest addition to the clinics. This works by creating many tiny holes in the surface of the skin - while leaving most of the skin intact - in order to stimulate collagen production and healing. It is an excellent choice for acne scars as well as lines and wrinkles, elasticity and overall skin tone.
Radiofrequency treatment works by heating the deep layers of the skin; which rejuvenates and firms the skin from within. Radiofrequency can achieve a subtle, all-over rejuvenation and is good for firming and toning the skin for a more youthful look.
IPL, or "Intense Pulsed Light" laser heats the deep layers of skin in order to promote healing mechanisms. This technique is a good choice for pigmentation issues including sun damage and acne rosacea; as well as anti-ageing treatment.
In order to offer the most appropriate treatment to their patients, Quinn Clinics have invested heavily in the latest skin care technology and offer all 3 treatments at their new clinic in Blackheath/Greenwich as well as their Bristol clinic based in Clifton.
Dr. John Quinn MB, BCh, BAO, BACD explains: “These approaches use the latest scientific advances, yet they appeal to those patients looking for a more naturally-based rejuvenation result, as well as those who wish to avoid needles.”
“However, as well as being useful on their own, these advanced technologies create remarkable anti-ageing results when used alongside traditional injectables for a more comprehensive treatment programme.”

In addition to CO2 fractional laser, radiofrequency and IPL; Quinn Clinics also offer a full range of traditional cosmetic and medical skin treatments, including popular anti-wrinkle injectionsdermal fillers and lip filler treatments as well as laser hair removal treatments. A private consultation is recommended to provide individual advice and determine the most appropriate treatment.
Dr. John Quinn MB, BCh, BAO, BACD is a highly experienced aesthetic doctor who has treated literally thousands of patients since choosing to specialise in Medical Aesthetics in 2005. He also offers training in popular cosmetic injections for medical professionals.

(botulinum toxin type A (free from complexing proteins))

How should I use Xeomin?

Botulinum toxin is injected into a muscle by a qualified health professional. When given for conditions of the eye, the medication is injected into the surrounding muscle or tissue of the eye.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are receiving the medication without consulting your doctor.
It is important this medication be given exactly as recommended by your doctor. If you miss an appointment to receive botulinum toxin type A, contact your doctor as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment. It is very important to keep your appointments for treatment and follow-up.

This medication is stored at room temperature. Once the dried powder has been mixed, it should ideally be used immediately. However, it may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Teosyal® Redensity [II]

From the age of 30, one woman out of two starts to be concerned about eye circles. With ageing the skin loses its tonicity and gets thinner. Muscles become looser. Each fat compartment in the skin develops itself on its own; they separate and disperse, forming hollows, ridges and folds. 

The orbits widen, the area increases and the infra-orbital margin retracts.

Botox Injections for Men

Botox Injections for Men Having Wrinkles (Skin Care and Skin Health)

In most skin care practices, about 10 percent of the Botox patients are men. About 5% of them want Botox for cosmetic procedures – wrinkle removal.

Undoubtedly more and more men are experiencing Botox. It has become something that is quite socially acceptable.   

That does not surprise many medical practitioners because people, including men, are very concerned about looking and feeling young; if men know that they look good – they feel good, and as a result, men are eating better and exercising more.

Julia Randolf, the Skin Expert, tells you everything you need to know about Botox injections for men.

Line and wrinkle treatments ‘still a popular anti-ageing solution’

Line and wrinkle treatments ‘still a popular anti-ageing solution’

According to Dr Christian there are few better treatments for getting rid of dynamic wrinkles that appear when the muscle underneath contracts and causes the skin to form a crease – such as when you frown, squint, or raise your eyebrows. The injections temporarily relax the muscles responsible for these lines.

She said: “For many people, repeatedly making certain dynamic facial expressions can result in permanent wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, which remain once the underlying muscle is relaxed. We have seen a dramatic rise in patients in their 30s and 40s getting [injections] to prevent these permanent wrinkles from developing.”

Melanoma Test Sniffs Scent of Cancerous Human Skin Cells with Nanotube Sensor : Conditions : Medical Daily

Melanoma Test Sniffs Scent of Cancerous Human Skin Cells with Nanotube Sensor : Conditions : Medical Daily

Just as dogs can sniff out cancerous growths on humans, a new nanotechnology-based sensor can detect the smell of melanoma from human skin cells.

The nanotube sensor, developed by researchers from Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania, can reliably distinguish unique chemical aromas associated with melanomas from scents released by healthy skin cells, though it has only been tested on cells in lab cultures thus far.

Melanomas are tumors that develop from mutations in melanocytes, skin cells that produce the pigment melanin, and often appear as blackish-brown or colored moles.
The disease is the deadliest form of skin cancer. While melanoma is often fatal when it spreads to other parts of the body, it is highly treatable if growths are identified early enough.

Wrinkle Injections – What Are They and How Do They Work?


Wrinkle Injections
There are a several options when it comes to wrinkle injections. These non-invasive, cosmetic procedures -- like botox or restylane -- help to soften or eliminate wrinkles and deep folds.
Although botox, xeomin and restylane, juvederm work differently, both are effective, quick – a typical procedure takes about 30 minutes to one hour -- and require very minimal down time.........if any.

Often times, theses treatments are called the “lunch-time”cosmetic procedure because many people are able to go back to work right afterward.
To date, these are the most popular cosmetic procedure used by men and women today. This is due to the fact that they are fairly safe, practically painless and very effective in facial restoration/rejuvenation.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are caused due to the loss of vital components in the lower level of the skin, called the dermis(collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid). Although there is no way to replace the building blocks of the dermis, there are quite a few products called dermal fillers that can be injected into the dermis to restore the skin's volume and elasticity and thereby minimising the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and scars.
Wrinkles on the face appear in different ways - As vertical lines just above the nose, which is often referred to as the "elevens"; or as horizontal rows across the forehead. The "elevens" are caused by squinting, scowling, worrying or just plain thinking; while the horizontal lines may result from normal animation while talking, or from holding the brows up with the primary muscle of the forehead during times of stress, or maybe just naturally. These lines are mostly the result of continual muscle contraction and can become very deep and prominent over time.

What Types of Injection Treatments Are Available?

Hylaform injection: This is a hyaluronic acid filler with the lowest concentration of hyaluronic acid. Due to its soft consistent filler, it is particularly used as a wrinkle injection for the lips and the cheeks area. Once injected, Hylaform merges into the dermis with other natural tissues. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that is found in the human body, when injected it helps to maintain skin volume by attracting and binding over one thousand times its weight in water; thereby helping smooth away lines and wrinkles.
Hylaform gradually gets absorbed by the body-fat over time, which is why top-up sessions/treatments are required to maintain its results about every 3 months; the effect lasting for the least of the hyaluronic acid fillers. The side-effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are bruising and swelling; the latter can last for up to a week.
Restylane injection: This is perhaps the most well-known and common of the hyaluronic acid fillers. Restylane is a clear liquid gel, a non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. Restylane is the stiffest hyaluronic acid filler and therefore particularly effective in treating deep wrinkles. Another benefit is the long-lasting results, as the effects of Restylane treatments can last six months or more, making it one of the longest-lasting fillers.
Common side effects include redness, headache, flu-like symptoms, bump, and injection site pain which can last for up to one week.
