There are 3 main reasons for enlarged pores, these are due to excess sebum, skin elasticity around the pore and increased hair follicle production. In addition chronic recurrent acne, gender, hormones and skin care regimen, inappropriate use of cosmedics, washing habits and sun exposure are also related to the pore size.

    Comments Off on Filler Rhinoplasty Results Now Supported By 3D Imaging

    Through the use of Injectable Fillers, the nose can be treated to correct mild imperfections such as lift a droopy tip, create a nose bridge or smooth out a visible bump. The biggest strength of Filler Rhinoplasty (or also referred to as a non-surgical nose job) is that it is minimally invasive and provides immediately visible results. Furthermore it can be done conveniently in the office setting without the downtime of surgery.

    Despite its temporary longevity, it is popular because it is simple, effective, and economical. Dr. Singh offers a “structured” nonsurgical Rhinoplasty approach using dermal fillers that can produce a comprehensive cosmetic enhancement of the nose *.

    “Structured” Filler Rhinoplasty allows a combined approach, correcting various components of the nose leading to a more holistic aesthetic enhancement. Despite the general understanding that filler injection provides immediate visible results, few studies have assessed the acute changes of the nose, until now.

    Recently 3D imaging has been developed to enable more precise evaluation of the nose after Filler Rhinoplasty. This revolutionary technique allows calculation of volume and topographic distances as well as the facial angles providing a more comprehensive understanding on the positive effects of this treatment. 3D imaging of patients that have received Filler Rhinoplasty has revealed that there were significant changes in the facial profile further supporting the effects of this treatment.

    In conclusion, the use of 3D imaging software technology has advanced our ability to analyze post procedural outcomes over 2D photographic technology.

    Homeopathy for Dermatological conditions: An approach that is not just skin deep.
     
    Skin diseases are some of the most common illnesses across geography and time. 3 skin conditions figured in the top 10 prevalent disease conditions worldwide according to a study done in 2013.
    When faced with skin problems such as acne, hives or eczema, our first thought is to make the problem go away asap. That hydrocortisone cream is more tempting than those Halloween candies or Christmas treats. But this may cause more problems in the future than fixes. 
     
    Skin is the largest organ of our body and symptoms on the skin are often a reflection of disturbance of your inner vital organs. Any attempt to rid of skin symptoms by a cream or lotion can only drive this problem further inward, only to re-appear later as a more serious problem. Recent studies have established a link between childhood eczema and development of asthma later on in life.
    Let Homeopathy with its unique holistic approach address the larger picture rather than just treating local symptoms.

    Comments Off on Don’t Sweat It: Effective Treatment for Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

    What is Hyperhidrosis?

    Normally, sweating helps to cool the human body. However, those who suffer from hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating—far more than necessary to perform the cooling function.

    Overactive sweat glands in the hands, feet, and armpits are often a source of embarrassment and anxiety, and can interfere with daily activities.

    Remember though, you aren’t alone. Hyperhidrosis affects almost 3% of the population (more than 220 million people), and there are effective treatments available.

    Comments Off on Considering Fillers for Your Wedding? Here’s What You Should Know
    Juvederm & other dermal fillers are a popular beauty treatment for brides. Everything you need to know about this fast, natural-looking option.

    Every woman wants to look her absolute best for her wedding but with a million and one things to plan and a guest list of loved ones you may not have seen in years, it’s easy for wedding anxieties to pile up.

    Juvederm and other dermal fillers are popular options for brides looking for a beauty treatment that will help them to look radiant and composed—even in the middle of wedding madness.

    And while you or your bridal party may be considering fillers, you likely have a few questions that you would like to answer before booking an appointment with a specialist. We’ve compiled some of the most common questions women tend to have about fillers here:

    Why Choose Fillers?

    Dermal fillers are a non-surgical, convenient, and long lasting way to rejuvenate the youthful features of your face, leaving you looking radiant and refreshed.

    Fillers are also fully customizable. Whether it’s full lips, beautifully contoured cheeks, or smooth, glowing skin, you can choose the treatment that will make you feel the most confident and beautiful as you walk down the aisle.

    Filler can also be combined with other injectable treatments and are available in a number of formulations for maximum effectiveness. Whatever options you choose, pre-wedding fillers will help make sure you look as amazing on the outside as you are feeling on the inside.

    What Are Dermal Fillers?

    Juvederm, Volbella, Restylane, and Perlane are all popular fillers. They work by filling in wrinkles and adding volume and moisture to facial features.

    Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a type of sugar that is naturally found in the human body and forms the foundation matrix of our skin.

    When injected under the skin (usually in the form of a gel) hyaluronic acid attracts and retains molecules of water, adding volume and luminosity to the skin and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.

    What Are My Options for Fillers?

    Each type of filler is usually specialized for a different facial feature. Commonly treated areas include the glabella (the wrinkles between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the bottom of your nose to the corner of your mouth), the temples, and the lips.

    Depending on your face shape and the facial areas you would like to enhance, a doctor will be able to advise you on which fillers would be best for you.

    Will All My Wedding Guests Know I’ve Had Fillers?

    Many people worry that fillers will make them look “plastic” or unnatural. This is definitely not the case. When administered properly, fillers simply enhance the natural look of a person’s face by restoring youthful qualities like smooth skin and fuller facial contours.

    This is why it is important to choose an experienced physician who is able to listen to your wishes and concerns, and recommend the ideal filler treatment for you.

    How Long Will My Appointment Take?

    From gym sessions and makeup trials to manicures and dress fittings, we know looking your best for your big day is often a tightly scheduled process.

    Fillers are a relatively quick treatment, no pre-test is needed, and procedures can be carried out immediately following a consultation, making them a popular option for busy bridal parties.

    Depending on the number and type of fillers you choose, a treatment generally takes 30 minutes. You will only need one treatment, and results can last from 3-6 months up to a year. (*) This makes fillers a great option for those who are planning ahead as well as those whose beauty decisions are more last-minute.

    Do Fillers Hurt? Will There Be Bruising?

    Dermal fillers are injected in a non-surgical procedure. Many patients report very little discomfort during their treatment. Your doctor may anesthetize the treatment area or use a filler that contains ingredients to numb the area and reduce pain.

    For a few days after your treatment, it is normal to see redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. For lip treatments, swelling may last up to a week.(*) That’s why we generally recommend getting fillers done no later than three weeks before your big day (and of course don’t forget to factor in the timing of wedding photos!)

    Am I Too Young (or Old) for Fillers?

    For women and men of all ages, fillers can be a good choice because the results are subtle, targeted, and easily customizable. Fillers are generally not recommended for those who are under 21 years of age, but the best course of action is to discuss your desired results with a doctor who will be able to help you choose the right treatment or preventative options.

    Hyaluronic acid – the main ingredient in dermal fillers — is found naturally in the human body and has been shown to stimulate collagen production. Whenever you decide to begin treatment, you will be minimizing the appearance of wrinkles in the long term.

    Are There Any Risks?

    To ensure your beauty treatment is safe and effective, it is very important to discuss your options with an experienced physician.

    Although the most common side-effects of treatment are minor swelling and redness, less common risks include allergic reactions, accidental injection into blood vessels, infection, and undesired results due to inexpert injections. The best course of action is to meet with a trained physician who can help you select the appropriate fillers, develop your unique beauty plan, and perform injections to the highest standards.

    What Results Will I See?

    Dermal fillers are a natural looking treatment that enhance facial contouring and youthful features.

    Whether you choose to smooth away under eye hollows, decrease forehead wrinkles, or create a fuller lip, dermal fillers can help you to look your absolute best on your big day.

    No matter how stressful planning your wedding may have been, you can walk down the aisle with an extra boost of confidence knowing that you look as beautiful, youthful, and radiant as you feel inside.

    For more information, book a consultation to talk with a specialist.
