By: Jeffrey Wisnicki, M.D., F.A.C.S. Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance. Sculptra provides gradual results that may last up to 2 years and may be a successful alternative to Botox, Dysport or Xeomin and fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, and Restylane.

By: Jeffrey Wisnicki, M.D., F.A.C.S. Children can be cruel. A boy or girl with protruding ears just starting out in school may soon find themselves to be the victim of humiliating “Dumbo” jokes or other similar teasing making socialization more difficult at this early age. Many kids learn to wear their hair long to hide their discomfort. Unfortunately, a child’s self-consciousness heightened by peer ridicule can make school a dreaded experience.
Botulinum toxins are used for the cosmetic treatment of frown lines between and above the eyebrows, the forehead, and crow’s feet (the lines on the outer part of and beneath the eyes). The three currently available brands, manufactured by different companies, are BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN®, and Dysport®. The basic principle of the treatment is the same for each. Wrinkles and folds of the face may be the result of muscle motion and/or tissue atrophy. These injectable products reduce muscle motion and can result in dramatic softening or elimination of unwanted lines. They accomplish this by temporarily blocking the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine which is necessary to activate muscles. The dosages are very dilute and localized to the area of desired effect. The results typically last 3 to 4 months.
Changes in our facial appearance are a function of many factors. Aging is certainly what comes to mind first, but loss of skin elasticity can occur prematurely as function of one’s genetics and skin care. Neck skin may start to hang and muscle bands may become more prominent. Jowls become heavier. Localized fat deposits under the chin may also result in a less streamlined neck profile and this is often not age related. With loss of facial volume, folds become deeper. There is not a set age when these changes start to occur and certainly when they become of concern is an individual matter.
