Three Benefits of Wrinkle Fillers

Would you take shots in the face just to look younger? Wrinkle-filling injections have become incredibly popular. Last year, 1.4 million people had facial wrinkles filled in – to look younger. And all but 80,000 of these were in women. When doctors inject these miracle substances into wrinkles, we see an immediate effect – most people say “WOW” by the time they leave the office.

Would you take shots in the face just to look younger? Wrinkle-filling injections have become incredibly popular. Last year, 1.4 million people had facial wrinkles filled in – to look younger. And all but 80,000 of these were in women. When doctors inject these miracle substances into wrinkles, we see an immediate effect – most people say “WOW” by the time they leave the office.

But did you know that there are really 3 effects of wrinkle filling? When we inject any filler, we stretch the skin and fool the body into thinking it has gained weight – and it needs to grow the skin – and so it makes more of its own collagen. And, when filler is injected into the skin, it stiffens it. And stiffer skin doesn’t wrinkle as easily.



So, when you have Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse treatments, you’re getting 3 benefits for the price of one!

4 Steps to Shedding Your Pandemic Pounds

Forgive yourself, and start walking toward a healthier you.

For those of you who have put on the Pandemic Pounds or added several new COVID Curves, you are not alone. Alarmingly, the American Psychological Association has recently published that almost half of all adults in their survey now have a larger physique. In fact, 42% of people reported gaining roughly 15 pounds (the average published was surprisingly 29 pounds but that included outliers) over the past year. Interestingly, 20% of adults in this survey lost about 12 pounds (I am surely not in this group). Clearly, there is a relationship between stress and weight change. In addition, one in four adults disclosed an increase in alcohol consumption, and 67% of participants distressingly revealed that they have new sleeping patterns.

This past year has brought about what has been called the 'new normal.' Social isolation and inactivity due to quarantining and remote working have sadly contributed to the decline in many people's mental and physical health, as demonstrated by the widespread changes in people's weight, alcohol consumption, and sleeping patterns. Gym closures, frequent ordering of unhealthy takeout, and increased time at home cooking and devouring comfort foods have had a perceptible impact. In addition, many people have delayed routine medical care and screening tests over fear of contracting Covid-19 during these visits. Unfortunately, the 'new normal' has now placed too many people at risk for serious health consequences, including heart attacks and strokes.
