Is Voluma the best injectable for lower face rejuvenation?

How Many Ultherapy Treatments Are Needed To See Results?

Loss of volume in the cheeks can dramatically affect the appearance of your face. However, there are now several injectables on the market that promise to give you back volume. If you would like to regain the cheeks of your youth, Juvederm Voluma is considered a very appropriate solution. It is specially marketed to volumize the cheeks, but is Voluma really the best injectable for lower face rejuvenation.

Volume loss in the lower face
Ageing in the mid-face seems to take place faster than in other parts of the face.  Before you know it the cheeks deflate due to loss of volume, and the jowls gradually start to droop. Saggy, sunken cheeks make you look old, even if you fill in the wrinkles around the mouth. Round, plump cheeks improve the definition of the face, and makes you look younger.

Does Voluma work for the lower face?
Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that is specially formulated to improve volume loss in the midface. It works instantly to volumize the midface and give the cheeks a slight lift. The results look smooth and natural, and can last for up to 2 years.

Adding volume to the cheeks has the added effect of softening the folds around the mouth, and conveys a more youthful appearance. This will improve the appearance of the lower face, but you may need a combination treatment to get the completelower face rejuvenation you desire.

Is a Single MiraDry Treatment Enough to Provide Permanent Sweat Reduction?

If sweaty armpits have got you stressed, you’re not alone, excessive sweating in a serious problem for many people in the US.  It’s often makes them feel so uncomfortable and self-conscious, that they choose outfits with their sweaty armpits in mind. If that’s also a problem for you, miraDry can free you from underarm sweat. But is a single miraDry treatment enough to provide permanent sweat reduction.

If you sweat a lot for no reason, even on a very cool day, chances are you suffer from hyperhydrosis or excessive underarm sweating. The problem is often the result of overactive sweat glands.

MiraDry is a FDA approved non-invasive procedure that uses controlled electromagnetic energy, to treat underarm sweating. The energy from the miraDry handpiece penetrates the underarm skin, where it heats up and destroys the sweat and odor glands. The procedure takes about an hour, and the side effects are minimal.

Is a single treatment enough
One treatment with miraDry gives some patients the results they desire. This is particularlytrue for people with mild to moderate sweating, but patients with more severe sweating will generally need an additional session.

At the end of the second treatment most patients experience up to 90% reduction in sweating, and since the sweat glands do not regenerate, the results are usually permanent.

Tired of underarm sweating? miraDry may be the answer for you. After treatment, you won’t have to worry about sweaty armpits again.

Patients in the Atlanta area can contact Skin Cancer Specialists, P. C. and Aesthetic Center, Marietta, Georgia, for more information about miraDry treatment for permanent sweat reduction. Please call 770-422-5557 today, and schedule a consultation.

Can sagging ears be lifted?

What is Otoplasty

Some women love wearing heavy, over-sized earrings, and while they are beautiful and dramatic to look at, they do pull on the ears and stretch the lobes over time. This often leads todroopy, elongated lobes that add years to your face. Can sagging ears be lifted and rejuvenated? Yes, an ‘ear lift’ is the ideal fix.

Why earlobes sag
Drooping earlobes are not always due to heavy earrings. The problem may also occur because of the natural aging of the skin.  As time passes the skin suffers the loss of both fat and collagen, and this causes the lobes to becomedeflated and lose elasticity.

Ear Lift
Earrings don’t look quite so attractive on sagging earlobes, and if you’re accustomed to wearing earrings every day, the idea of going without them may not be appealing. That’s why more and more women are choosing to have an ear lift done, to correct droopy lobes.

The ear lift is an in-officeprocedure that is generally done under local anaesthetic. It involves removing excess tissue and skin from the ear. If the pierced hole has stretched significantly then sutures are used to repair it. The procedure takes about an hour to complete. An ear lift makes the ears shorter and rounder. In some cases dermal fillers are also injected into the holes, to make them plumper.

Dermal fillers
If the earlobe becomes thin and droops downward, dermal fillers may be enough to rejuvenate the ears. Filler injections are often recommended for younger patients, who do not have significant sagging of the earlobes.
