Ways of Removing Age Spots

Liver spots, commonly referred to as age spots, appear in adults over the age of 40 most visibly on the hands, arms, face, bald scalp and other areas of the body that are exposed to sunlight. Age spots are an unwelcome sign of aging and can be a bit of a bother for most people. They are flat brown, black or gray spots or blemishes on the skin as a result of aging and over-exposure to the sun and ultraviolet light. With age the skin is less capable of generating new skin, when compared to the earlier years, and therefore age spots often prove difficult to remove. There are natural techniques and skin treatments to remove age spots, some of which are specifically designed for the skin type of an individual. Natural Remedies for Age Spots Try DIY home remedies to gently lighten and remove age spots on your skin without causing more unnecessary harm to the skin. Aloe gel has chemicals with regenerating properties to remove dead skin cells in order to promote new healthy cell growth. Applying fresh aloe vera gel to your age spots twice a day can lighten and possible remove age spots. If you cannot get fresh aloe gel from a living plant, use an organic store-bought variety. When life hands you lemons, use it effectively to get rid of age spots. Lemons contain a natural acid that lightens age spots and it can be used daily on affected areas. You can use lemon juice and raw sugar to make syrup for application on affected areas using gentle circular motions. Apply for 15 minutes and rinse off with clean water. Buttermilk can be used directly to the age spots and allowed to dry for five to 10 minutes before being rinsed clean. Buttermilk contains natural lactic acid for exfoliation of pigmented areas of skin and lightening age spots with daily use. eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation These are homemade treatments for age spots but the best way to remove age spots, discolorations and sun damage that appears on your skin is through the eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation system.

Brotox- A Guide to Botox for Men

No one can stop aging, but there are cosmetic tools available to hide the signs of aging for longer. Treating lines or wrinkles as they appear are no longer set aside just for women and celebrities. More men are choosing to fix fine lines and wrinkles on their faces with lasers, fillers, needles, and chemical peels. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men undergoing Botox has increased 310 percent since 2000. With a wider cultural acceptance of men going for cosmetic treatments now and a push on the value of youth in the workplace, more men are opting for easy outpatient treatments. When forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines and laughter lines begin to appear, you can smooth them with treatments administered by professionals. Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with Botox to relax the muscles in your face. For deeper lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be more effective. Facial rejuvenation and skin tightening can be attained with facial peels or microdermabrasion. Botox and Juvederm For Men Botox- Botox® is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that has become an immensely popular cosmetic treatment for men in the United States, especially because it shows real results without any time off work. The injectable botulinum toxin A in botox is a derived protein that relaxes targeted muscles causing furrowed brows, frown lines, wrinkled foreheads and crow’s feet in a few minutes. Skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen, with age, producing creases and lines. Botox can quickly remove fine lines by preventing muscle movements to promote a more youthful and smoother, relaxed looking skin. There are other life-changing benefits of Botox besides wrinkle-reduction, as a temporary treatment for controlling Axillary Hyperhidrosis. It is a medical condition wherein the person suffers from unpredictably excessive underarm sweating even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest. Botox is FDA approved as small doses are injected into the underarm areas. Many people, both men and women, sweat when they get nervous. Botox injections temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating, which lasts from 7 to 9 months. The beauty of Botox is that it be injected into different areas of your skin at any time, especially around the eyes, forehead, and between your eyebrows.  Many problem areas such as the lower third of the face and neck can also be treated. These injections require zero downtime and minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.  The effects of Botox last between three to four months and most patients notice results within a few days. Injectable Fillers Skin naturally loses structure and volume when the collagen and elastin breaks down over time. This causes unwanted facial wrinkles and deep nasolabial folds to appear in the inner dermal layer of the skin. Injectable cosmetic dermal fillers offer a liquid facelift to create volume in areas where facial features have aged and wrinkled over time. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm are now as popular as Botox for men. Juvederm works as an injectable gel dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule that absorbs water to create volume in the face Men get excellent results from contouring under the eyes with fillers and also for creases of the ears, chin area and for acne scars. The wrinkles in these areas can be corrected with easily mouldable hyaluronic acid fillers, with little or no recovery time. Juvederm can be used to fill in the fold from the nose...

Shrink Your Double Chin Fat with Kybella

You cannot stop aging and the effects of aging on your face, such as fine lines, sun spots, wrinkles and sagging. The skin sags around the chin with age, filling with fat and creating a “double chin.” The appearance of multiple chins is medically known as convexity, associated with accumulation of bothersome submental fat. This curse of middle age, the ugly double chin can be banished with injections of Kybella. The only alternative to get rid of the double chin so far, was going under the knife of a plastic surgeon for a chin tuck but help is at hand with jabs of Kybella ATX 101 by Kythera, Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to help contour and reduce the appearance of submental fullness. KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the US availability of Kybella injection on June 19th 2015, to treat double chins. The magic drug was developed by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre in Dallas and patients can get the treatment in a cosmetologist or dermatologist office on an outpatient basis. What Is Kybella? Kybella is a prescription medicine containing ATX 101 which is a cytotoxic drug synthetically-similar to deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid helps the body to absorb fat naturally. Kybella is injected into the fat layer of skin to destroy the cell membrane of the fat cells and improve the appearance of fat below the chin commonly referred to as, “double chin.” The fat is permanently destroyed and absorbed into the body, which results in visible improvement in the under-chin area. Patients can receive multiple injections in the submental area and up to six treatments may be administered, with a gap of one month in between treatments. Are There Any Side Effects to the Kybella Procedure? Kybella is remarkably safe, as proved by clinical trials, according to FDA. Apart from FDA clinical trials, KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals also conducted 20 clinical trials on 2600 patients worldwide, with more than 90% of patients happy with the results post injection. There may be some side effects such as pain, swelling and bruising with KYBELLA treatments but they are transient and resolve within 7-10 days of swelling. Kybella is safe as long as it is administered by a trained professional, following drug dosage instructions and proper injection procedure.  The best results from a treatment are noticed at 6-8 weeks post injection. Who is a good candidate for KYBELLA treatment? If you have a double chin and want to reduce fat from under chin, you can undergo Kybella treatment. It is ideal for a man or woman of any skin type or ethnicity. Each chin treatment session with KYBELLA lasts typically 15 to 20 minutes, and is easy to have done at anytime of the day. You must be over 18 years old, with moderate to severe submental fatty tissue, in overall good health. You should understand how Kybella procedure works and have reasonable expectations from it. Kybella is not for patients who are pregnant, or those with an active infection or bleeding disorder. Calista Skin and Laser Clinic offers a free consultation for KYBELLA™ treatment for anyone concerned with their “double chin.” A consultation with an examination of the under chin fat will help evaluate if you can undergo KYBELLA procedure and how many injections you will need. Most patients generally need 2-4 treatments with a month apart between each but larger “double chins” need more treatments, with up to 6 treatments of KYBELLA allowed. Find out...
