A cosmetic procedure where Botox® and Dysport® are injections that go into the skin to prevent facial wrinkles and folds to appear in the face. Botox and Dysport are made from Botulinumtoxin A which relaxes muscles and prevents them from creating wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are a great way to stop lines from becoming a fixed feature in the face. They treat dynamic wrinkles that are caused when you move the muscles in your face.
Dysport effects can be seen quicker that the Botox effects. Where Botox may take 3 to 5 days to work, Dysport effects start 1 to 2 days after the initial treatment to start smoothing out unwanted facial lines. The full results for both can be seen 1 to 2 weeks after the initial procedure. Botox and Dysport differ from dermal fillers because they treat the muscle, unlike fillers which use hyaluronic gel to plump up the skin and add volume
Botox and Dysport prevent wrinkles and folds when the person’s face is at rest or if the face is moving. Dermal fillers only work when the persons face is at rest and the lines reappear when the person does any facial expression. Also dermal fillers work best for unwanted lines in the bottom half of the face whereas Botox and Dysport is best for the upper half of the face.
Injectable gels are used to hide the signs of aging, each product below treat different areas of the face and have different benefits. The fillers will smooth out any unwanted facial lines.
Acne occurs when the glands in the skin become infected or inflamed. Acne affects people of all ages, even after puberty, but can be controlled with the right treatment.
Acne occurs when glands in the skin become hyperactive. These glands are responsible for producing an oily substance. When the gland becomes hyperactive, then the oil blocks the dead skin cells and follicle. Some of the main causes of acne include the hormones in our body. They are responsible for maturing the oil glands in the skin and once they mature they can produce acne. A person’s diet can also contribute to having acne.
People with acne tend to have less antioxidants in their skin like Vitamin A and Vitamin E in their skin. Stress is another factor that affects the production of acne in your skin. Stress will make the walls of the pores in our body break and the body responds by making a zit. Teenagers and young adults are more prone to having acne but it can occur at any age after puberty.
