Neurotoxins like Botox are a common and essential component of aesthetic rejuvenation.
Mainly Three neurotoxins are used.
These are purified proteins that are used to relax muscles by blocking nerve impulses. They are used to treat facial wrinkles like frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, blepharospasm, etc While the drugs share the same mechanism of action, dosing varies.
While the effects of neurotoxins last from 3 to 6 months, the effects of dermal fillers range from 6 months to 3 years, and they are usually used for volume enhancement.
Dermal fillers can be categorized into temporary, semipermanent, and permanent. FDA-approved uses for dermal fillers include treatment of moderate to severe nasolabial folds, cheek and lip augmentation, and increasing the volume of the back of the hand.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) gives excellent results.
It’s not a laser but a high-output flash lamp that has been used to treat vascular and pigmented lesions as well as epidermal and dermal atrophy associated with photoaging and other imperfections. There is minimal downtime for the patient and significantly less risk of complications than with the ablative lasers.
It helps decrease dark circles under the eye, redness, pigment spots, and the appearance of scars while helping rejuvenate the skin with fewer complications.
The surgeon and patient do need eye protection—goggles and shields—when this device is in use.
