What are lipotropic injections? Lipotropic injections are a concoction of essential amino acids choline, methionine, and inositol combined with vitamins B6 and B12. This combination of amino acids and vitamins has so many benefits for the body. Choline, an essential nutrient, actively reduces fat in the liver, decreasing chances of heart disease. Methionine, an amino acid responsible for lowering cholesterol and fat reduction in the body, is not produced in our bodies. Inositol is responsible for metabolizing fats and helping transfer those fats to the bloodstream. Inositol also regulates serotonin and insulin in our bodies. This increases mood and decreases hunger. Vitamins B6 and B12 are added to elevate mood, to assist in lipid metabolism, and to increase energy.
The number of treatments needed to successfully remove a tattoo can differ dramatically due to tattoo size, location, color and density of tattoo ink, and device used, among other factors. While it is nearly impossible to guarantee the removal of a tattoo within a specific number of treatments, tattoo removal experts can assess the following variables to predict tattoo removal success:
First there was Botox, then there was Dysport, and now there is Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved this new botulinum toxin type A product to treat severe frown lines or “11’s” between the eyebrows. Xeomin was already FDA approved for use in adults with cervical dystonia and blepharospasm. Cervical dystonia is characterized by abnormal neck pain and movements, and blepharospasm is marked by abnormal, involuntary blinking or spasm of the eyelids. Xeomin is manufactured by Merz Pharmaceuticals, and has been used by more than 84,000 people worldwide. It is now approved for use in 20 countries.
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Silk, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. These products are made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is biocompatible with the human body and eventually broken down naturally.
They can be used individually to add volume
and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as
the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
When blood circulation is poor, there is a possibility for the veins to thicken with blood. These veins are generally called varicose veins. Inflamed veins that are smaller and less visible are known as spider veins. Varicose and spider veins can manifest in any part of the body, although they are usually seen in the legs and thighs. The appearance of these veins is a common occurrence in pregnant women, people who spend a lot of time standing, and those who suffer from obesity. There are a variety of treatments for varicose and spider veins, one of which is theAsclera Polidocanol Injection.
Injectable dermal fillers like Restylane and Radiesse aren’t just for your face anymore. While these treatments that add volume and hydrate the skin are still great for smoothing facial wrinkles, erasing acne scars, and plumping up lips, plastic surgeons are finding even more uses for injected skin sculpting.
