3 Uses for Injectable Treatments You May Not Have Known About
When it comes to aesthetic enhancement treatment, far and away, injectable procedures such as Botox and injectable dermal fillers have slowly become the most popular and most heavily in-demand minimally invasive treatment modalities around today. The fact is that in the world of cosmetic medicine, the main thing we are often looking to combat is the unwanted effects of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds and volume loss issues. And in order to fight these issues, while you can have surgery, the vast majority of patients, both men and women, would much rather find a noninvasive method of treating these issues instead of having to go under the knife. This is the niche where injectable dermal fillers and neurotoxin treatments like Botox, and Dysport have been able to easily step in and provide tons of benefits without the risks, side effects or the long, drawn out recovery period that’s often associated with surgery. The fact is that Botox and dermal filler combine for well above 60% of ALL aesthetic enhancement treatments being performed each and every day, and while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines might be their main specialty, and their bread and butter, the fact is that another reason why these treatments are so popular is because of their versatility and the fact that they can treat way more than just wrinkles! In this article, we will be exploring a few of the most interesting, not so well known uses for injectable dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane and Radiesse, and neurotoxins like Botox.
· Treating Thinning, Wrinkled Hands
When it comes to dermal fillers, we conventionally think of treating wrinkles along the face, however wrinkles can develop all over and while volume loss is a symptom of aging, it isn’t just facial volume loss – it can occur on the hands, feet and other parts of the body as well. When the body loses vital collagen stores, the skin and subdermal tissue is lost over time, and it becomes thinner and thinner. This effects the hands quite a bit. We often see older men and women with thinning hands and very thin tissue, that allows us to see every vein and ever bone in the hand at remarkable detail. In order to treat this, it works similarly to the face, we inject a dermal filler like Radiesse into the hands, and it provides the much-needed volume and fullness the patient may be lacking. Radiesse is proven to be one of the most effective dermal fillers for hand rejuvenation but others like Juvéderm and Restylane do work as well.
· Non-Surgical Nose Fillers
When it comes to using dermal fillers, one of the most interesting uses that very few individuals know exist is the non-surgical rhinoplasty. The use of non-surgical nose fillers has become more and more common over time, as the days have gone by, at the office of Dr. Hamadiya, the best medical spa Miami has in practice. At his office the use of non-surgical nose fillers within the non-surgical rhinoplasty, has helped countless patients who are looking to enhance the appearance of their nose and improve their nasal passages and other features, without the need for having to undergo expensive surgery that can leave them with a number of side effects, and unwanted risks. Non-surgical nose fillers work best with hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm, as this allows the doctor to alter the shape and fill any specific depressions in the nasal area the easiest possible.
· Botox for Hyperhidrosis
During the summer months, we are prone to sweating quite a bit. However, some of us may just be sweating a lot more than others. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is marked by the hyperactivity of the sweat glands, as patients will often sweat a lot from their armpits. According to Dr. Hamadiya’s office, the best medical spa Miami has in practice, one of the best treatments for this is Botox! Like it does with the muscles beneath the face’s surface, Botox will also cause temporary paralysis in the nerves within the armpits that are responsible for producing sweating. This will temporarily dull the sweat glands, and ensure you don’t overly sweat.
