Lips are the sexiest thing on your face, but guess what, they age faster than the rest of your skin. However, lip lines and wrinkles can be prevented and even corrected with a couple of sneaky tricks. From how to best moisturize and exfoliate your lips, to the best in-office treatments to fix lines and wrinkles.

Prevention from UV and dry atmosphere is key.
Exfoliate your lips at least once a week with a soft moist tooth brush.

Use moisturiser with hyaluronic acid and repeat lip palm with SPF.   Consider resurfacing of the lip with a micro-laser peel works really well to help diminish lines.

Injectables and botox work really well but they must be administered by an experienced doctor for a natural look.

Botox is no longer just for the middle aged

Twenty-four-year-old Natalie Garcia started using Botox two years ago. Why would anyone that age turn to Botox? You may be surprised to learn that Botox can prevent future wrinkling.

Do you look older than your friends?

20 something!

“I like having nice skin, it makes me feel confident, so why not? When my skin actually starts aging, during my later years, I think it’ll be beneficial.” Natalie is not the only 20-something to use Botox. CBS Chicago, Dec. 4, 2012, reports on the growing trend of young people who get Botox injections to prevent wrinkles, not to erase them.

Men and women alike

This trend is not limited to women. Twenty-seven-year-old Blake Troiani started getting Botox injections this year. “Forehead lines were my biggest concern. I think they make you look older, a little more tired.” Since receiving his injections, he’s enjoyed compliments from family and friends that he looks rejuvenated and much younger.

The science behind Botox is simple

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles. If you start using Botox at a younger age, you’ll need injections less often because attacking the fine lines early on will prevent future deep wrinkles from forming. “Because the muscles can’t move anymore, those lines don’t get etched into the skin,”. Some people, they can go seven, eight, nine months even a year without Botox because they just keep those muscles in check. people love the results Doctors said patients could become used to Botox injections, because they love the results.

The average cost is €150 to €200 for each area on your face that’s treated with a maximum of €400 for the full face. To start out, to keep your forehead wrinkle free, most people need Botox injections every three to four months.

If you’re interested in Botox injections, follow these rules to get the best results: have the injections in a reputable medical facility, make sure you are being injected with Irish Medicines Board licensed product and, most important, make sure your injector is registered doctor with the Irish Medical Council.

 

Topic highlight of the week…

This week we look at fat harvesting & transfer

Body fat has been widely debated on an emotional, cultural, artistic, socio-economical and medical level. Fat harvesting and transfer from one body region to another is known as lipofilling. The lipofilling procedure is a well-known procedure in aesthetic medicine and its revival is due to recent technical innovation in fat cell survival and purification. Fat is invariably harvested from unwanted areas and put to good use where it’s needed.  Aging is responsible for subcutaneous fat tissue loss and skin elasticity. These defects or deficiencies typically result from the loss of a volume of fat tissue. The lipofilling procedure utilises the patient’s own fat tissue to address or treat other areas in their body. This eliminates the risk of a foreign body reaction. Fat is readily available in nearly all patients. The process carries minimal discomfort to the patient and the lipofilling procedure can easily be repeated if necessary.  Excess amounts of fat tissue are found all over the human body, and may easily be obtained through low pressure liposuction and transplanted to a target location. Fat can be harvested from the abdominal region, the inner part of the knees, the upper legs or buttocks. Most scientific data indicate that fat harvested from the saddle bags yields the most viable and potent cells. These cells are thought to be abundant in Stem Cells. Stem Cells isolated from fat tissue obtained by liposuction and are found to be capable to become different types of tissues.

Testimonial

“After much thought, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Kahlout.

My objective on arrival at the clinic was to look rested. I have always tried to take good care of my skin, but during certain stages in life one begins to look weary. After consultation and through explanation it was my decision to have done what I wanted.

Since my treatment I feel good about my appearance and have had many compliments on how clear and even my complexion is.

I now feel I look possibly the best I can and this makes me feel different about a lot of things in my life.
