Juvederm Dermal Fillers: What makes it so different?

procedure face juvederm dermal filler face wrinkles Juvederm Dermal Fillers: What makes it so different?Juvederm dermal fillers have a proven track record for the highest level of efficacy and longevity. As a matter of fact, Juvederm is FDA approved to last up to 1 year! Countless hours of testing have resulted in a filler that not only adds volume to lips, but also fills even the deepest wrinkles and lines.

Like many other dermal fillers, Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based filler. What sets Juvederm apart from other fillers, however, is the way the hyaluronic acid is “cross linked”. “Cross linking’ refers to the was the molecules are bonded together. The more cross-linking there translates into how long the filler will last. Normally Hyaluronic acid is metabolized by the human body within two days, cross linking the molecules results in long lasting results, with a maximum duration of one year. Of course, longevity varies depending on injection site.

How Juvederm compares to other fillers:

Most hyaluronic fillers on the market today are very similar in that they are acid based, and can be used to fill lines and wrinkles. Most however, do come close to Juvederm in terms of smoothness. Often times, with older fillers, bumps and lumps can form under the skin, and the patient runs the risk of achieving a less than stellar result. This risk is minimzed completely when Juvederm is used. Injector experience is always a factor when administering injectables, but Juvederm is well know troughout the industry for providing the smoothest results possible. This is due to the small size of the cross linked molecules in Juvederm.

Many other fillers tend to diminish quite rapidly, lasting 3-6 months. Juvederm on the other hand is FDA approved to last up to 1 year! As stated previously, the injection site affects longevity, but patients will be pleased to know that no matter what, Juvederm lasts longer than any other filler on the market. Sites like the lips tend to diminish more rapidly simply due to the fact that people use their lips quite often, whether it be to speak, smile, or even eat. However, wrinkles on parts of the face that do not see as much rigorous use as the lips can, and often do stay full for a much longer duration of time.

Juvederm is also for more specialized than most other filler. In fact, there are actually two formulations of it:

Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Juvederm Ultra is primarily used for lips and epidermis injections. XC Ultra Plus, however, is a much more robust formula which is used in the deeper layers of the skin to fill wrinkles and folds. This means that matter what you’re trying to achieve, there is a specialized formula to help you see results.

Laser Hair Removal: Just The Facts

lens7052282 1253211091laser hair removal.jpg.scaled500 Laser Hair Removal: Just The Facts

The Skin Care Clinic offers the latest in Laser Hair Removal technology. Our laser permanently reduces hair safely with minimal downtime. Most patients require 8-10 treatments with each treatment ranging from 15-60 minutes (depending on the area being treated). The treatment sessions are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart for optimal hair reduction. Patient comfort is maximized with a topical numbing cream and cooling technique.

How It Works:

The Syneron is one of the fastest and most effective hair removal systems available. This type of hair removal is long lasting and allows large areas of skin to be treated at the same time. The laser is directed through the skin to the hair follicle, where it stops growth. A gel is used on the surface of the skin for conduction and cooling purposes. Most patient experience minimal discomfort and find the procedure to be very tolerable.

How Long It Lasts:

Intended to be permanent, but people often need to return every 6 months to a year for maintenance.

Pre / Post-treatment Tips:

Patient must shave (NOT wax) 1-2 days prior to each treatment to promote effectiveness. Sun should be avoided before and immediately after each treatment to minimize skinirritation and discoloration.

Liquid Face Lift : What You Need to Know

at home face lift.jpg.scaled500 Liquid Face Lift : What You Need to Know “I didn’t want to go under the knife but I wanted to do something to rejuvenate my look”.

The Skin Care Clinic has heard this repeatedly, and when smaller alternatives are not
enough, we are pround to now introduce “The Instant Facelift”.

Injectables and fillers used to serve one purpose: filling lines and wrinkles. Over the last
few years, expert injectors have preferred the use of injectables, and now a myriad of
injectables can be used during a single treatment to add volumeand lift drooping features
and skin. Known as The Injectable Lift, this is a viable option for those who want a
quick fix in about an hour.

PROS AND CONS:

“Instant Facelift”, in the right patient, is an excellent option, but it is not as permanent as
a scalpel facelift, says Dr. Jeffery Olsen, MD.

What an “Instant Facelift” can do:

1. Fill lines and wrinkles
2. Increase volume
3. Add Definition

What an “Instant Facelift” cannot do

1. Elimanate excess skin
2. Provide long term results
3. Tighten the skin excessively

A free consultation at our office in Newport Beach can determine if you are a candidate,
and educate you on what your options are!

The Skin Care Clinic’s special formulation of SNY-AKE (RF) is a syntyhetic tripeptide derivative that targets the neuromuscular activity, which has excellent benefits in smoothing and assisting in the extenton of Botox and other anti-wrinkle properties.

SYN-AKE is a small perptide that mimics the activity of WAGHLERIN 1, a poly-peptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Troppidolaemus wagleri.  Clinical trials have shown that SYN-AKE is capable of reducing mimic wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions.  To get a real Age Killing Effect, try SYN-AKE, which acts as a post-synaptic membrane, our formulation is a reversable antagolist of the muscular receptor, thus inhibits movement.

The tri-peptides are a binding element to the subunit which prevents binding of the connecting receptor – thus it remains closed, which helps the muscle stays relaxed.

SIGNIFICANT DECREASE OF EXPRESSION OF LINES ON FOREHEAD WHEN USED IN CONJUCTION WITH BOTOX:

The Skin Care Clinic‘s speciific formulation of SYN-AKE(RF) produced at least a 10% extention rate; and in conjunction with the healping properties of copper peptides and healing compounds, 94% of all studies reported that they found thier Botox results lasted longer than when not using the product.

 

Top 3 Gimmicks Used By Miracle Acne Treatments

 

  Modern medicine has brought us such miracles as an aids vaccine, and the telescopic eye, yet, it seems like scientists have overlooked the small potatoes, like acne treatments. Acne is something we have all had to deal with, and something we all equally dislike. It has ruined numerous dates and countless photographs. For some, acne has even left deep scarring and tissue damage due to cysts. The lack of effective acne treatments on the market today, and the lack of consumer knowledge has left a void that scam artists have filled with great marketing and cheap, ineffective products.

Gimmick #1: The 3-day Natural Cure.

  Most acne products base their advertising on the feeling of helplessness. They know that most people who are willing to try their acne treatments, have tried others in the past with, odds are, less then stellar results. The 3-day natural cure e-book’s technique involves eating apples, and drinking plenty of water. That’s it, just apples and water. I’m sure you can imagine how upsetting it must have been for those that actually bought the e-book.

Gimmick #2: Exaggerated Success Rate

   Accutane, one of the most prescribed acne medications dominated the market for years. Thousands of people with acne subscribed to the idea, and promise that Accutane will clear their breakouts while providing effective, long-term acne prevention. Shockingly enough, the rate of success for Accutane is only 50%. Wait, 50%?!?! That’s almost as effective as those magnetic bracelets that they sell on late-night infomercials.

  To add insult to injury, Accutane also has horrible side-effects including: weak skin, Alopecia, depression, suicidal tendencies, birth defects, miscarriages, back pain, joint pain, dry mucus membranes, pink eye, dryness of the eye, vision problems, ringing in the ear, psychosis, and many many more. In fact, there have been hundreds of lawsuits against the maker of accutane because of these dangerous side-effects.

Gimmick #3: Patented Ingredients:

  The FDA requires all manufacturers to disclose, on the product label, the contents or ingredients of the product. One way to work around ingredient disclosure is the ever-popular “patented ingredient”. An acne treatment company will often time patent an ingredient to sell something that isn’t really what they say it is. This is strictly a shady sales technique, and patented ingredients should be avoided at all costs.

  The Bottom line is that however you decide to treat your acne, keep common sense in mind. Med Spas and commercials that offer miracles are often times just trying to take your money without any regard for your own health or well-being. Acne treatments should be taken seriously, and if you want results, you should make sure you see a medical professional. If you’re in the Los Angeles or Orange County area, and would like to start your journey towards clear, acne-free skin, call The Skin Care Clinic in Newport Beach.

Their experienced staff and caring practitioners will provide with personal, professional service. Call today for a FREE Consultation at (949) 760-8065 or email us.

The Skin Care Clinic Demystifies Laser Hair Removal

Having a play set in your backyard can be a great way to get your child off the couch and out into the fresh air. With childhood obesity on the rise, we need to do what we can as parents to get our children active and enjoying playing and interacting with each other children again. Being able to go out in the yard and have something to do is just one small step in the right direction.

Playgrounds and play sets can be an integral part of your child’s growth and skill set.

Each piece of the play set can assist our children in different ways. And overall it can make our children healthier and happier.

Monkey bars help with upper body strength, hand eye coordination and gross motor skills.

Climbing up slides, as children so enjoy doing, get’s their leg muscles working and gives them a great stretch as well.

Swing sets can be a great workout for most of their little bodies. Exercising everything from their arms, to their midsections and their legs. All these benefits from having some fun and swinging the afternoon away.

Of course the play set itself can also play a key part in socialization skills. Inviting friends over to actually go out and play can go a long way to helping your child develop better interpersonal skills.

Plus there’s the creativity factor it brings out in children. Creating games and things to do on the play set also help them. And it can get their brains working more than simply staring at the television all day long.

And of course just getting out and playing helps them get much needed exercise. And when they are really going, their hearts are pumping, their blood is flowing and they are getting the added benefits of a cardio workout.

Simply being outside helps as well. Getting fresh air and exercise will not only give them the added health benefits, but most children will sleep much deeper and better after a day of fun outside. Plus, the fact it’s your own play set helps control the amount of germs your children are subjected to.

As parents it is our job to ensure our children are raised healthy and happy. Having a play set in your backyard can help achieve both. And they’ll never be the wiser about the health benefits they are getting. Give them something fun to do, and watch them play themselves into better shape.

Choosing The Right Skin Care Products

When it comes to skin care products, you may be confused as to the many different products that are on the market that focus on skin care for your skin care type as well as specialty areas of your face. It is never too soon or too late to start taking care of your skin, especially with the latest skin care products that are on the market today.

When looking for skin care for yourself, first look to entire kits of skin care solutions. The kits should consist of cleansing solutions as well as protective creams and serums that will keep the wrinkles at bay. If you are looking for a way to take years off of your appearance, you can find it with the modern skin care solutions being offered today. These skin care products use serums that are composed of properties that are already in your skin and work naturally to restore your skin to youthfulness.

Cleansing is the first step towards skin care. If your skin is not properly cleansed, then you are wasting your time putting creams on your face. Forget about soap as it dries out your skin and also contains chemicals that can cause you harm as they are absorbed into your skin. It is essential that you choose skin care products that contain a good deep cleanser in addition to moisturizers for your face. You need to make sure that your pores are completely cleansed out when you are taking care of your skin so that you can prevent the signs of aging.

Not everyone has the same type of skin. Your skin may be oily or dry.  Or it may be combination skin. You need to look for skin care products that not only address aging, but also will be ideal for your skin type. Skin care works when you address the type of skin that you have with the correct products.

Special serums that are designed for parts of your face that are more sensitive are also an important part of your skin care routine. For example, the skin around your eyes is every thin and more prone to wrinkles than any other part of your face. The best skin care products address this fact and have serums that are especially made for problem areas of your skin.

By taking care of your skin with new skin care products now offered at The Skin Care Clinic that are made for anti aging, you will be amazed at the results. You do not have to put up with the natural signs of aging that appear on your face if you do not want to. You can take care of your skin with skin care products that retard aging and will make your skin look years younger. By using these products regularly, you will be fighting the signs of time that creep up on all of us. Once you get into a regular skin care routine, you will start to notice positive results right away and will look younger and gain more confidence when it comes to your appearance. Fight time with skin care that is made to reduce the signs of aging and make your skin look soft and supple.
