Can Facial Implants Move out of Place?

Deep Medical Chemical Peels before Tropical Vacations: What ...

Everybody wants to look their best while on vacation, and some people will go to all ends necessary to achieve it. To some, this means getting a hair cut or fresh pedicure, while to others it means getting a base-tan, and even getting dramatic skin treatments. This isn’t always a good idea however, especially when it comes to deep medical chemical peels! Yes, the idea of laying on a beach with a fresh and youthful face thanks to your recent treatment might sound appealing, but getting a chemical peel before your next tropical getaway is highly unadvised by the medical community. Here’s why: The Sun is Your Chemical Peel’s Enemy Most doctors and specialists will suggest that you bring sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat to your treatment so that you don’t have to expose your skin to any sun. It’s of utmost importance that you completely avoid the sun during the week or two after your treatment. If you absolutely must go outdoors, put on the hat, layer on the sunscreen, and make it as quick as possible. Your skin is extremely vulnerable after a deep medical chemical peel, and the risk for sun damage is extremely high. This goes for even those short trips to the grocery store! Heat…

Do Facial Implants Erode the Bone?

More and more people are electing to implant procedures to correct facial areas that they view as “weak”, or that they simply would like to be more prominent for aesthetic reasons. Two of the most common procedures are chin and cheek bone implants. In almost all instances, these procedures have a dramatic—often stunning—effect that is gratifying for both the surgeon and the patient. Implants are also one of the procedures that raise the most questions—one of the most common of which is, “Will facial implants erode my bones?” If this is a concern of yours going into surgery, you can set your mind at ease. Will facial implants cause bone erosion? The short answer to this question is, “Possibly, but it’s highly unlikely.” There are some (although very few) reports of slight bone erosion following facial implants, which is likely where this concern stems from. With that being said, potential facial implant candidates should find reassurance in the fact that the ratio of surgeons and patients who have not experienced any type of erosion due to implants far outweighs the number of people who have experienced this as a side effect. It’s much more likely that those who do make this complaint are actually experiencing the every day dynamics of…

How often do I have to get Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a popular procedure because it’s a safe and virtually painless method for removing unwanted body hair. Highly effective, most patients experience a permanent reduction in hair growth after only a few treatments. This procedure is most effective during the growth phase of the hair follicle. Because hair follicles move between resting and growth phases, more than one treatment will usually be required in order to affect all of the follicles in a given area. The resting follicles will not be affected by the treatment and patients will have to return in order to target the now-active hair follicles. Patients do not need to wait for hair to grow in before their next session, as follicles will be active long before hair begins to show. However, it is not recommended to undergo laser hair removal treatments too frequently in the same area. The frequency of treatments – and often the number of total treatments required – will depend greatly on the area of your body and the growth rate of your hair. Most patients will find that the face can typically be treated every four weeks, while other parts of the body may require treatment only every six or eight weeks. The average patient will require somewhere…
