Lip Wrinkles occur in women but not in men. Vertical lines , smokers lines, are seen on the lips of women who have never smoked. This area along with the fold between the nose and the lip and adjacent cheek are normally treated with fillers or laser surgery. Neither is a perfect solution. The combination of injections of DMAE( an ingredient found in high end cosmetics ) along with carbon dioxide can result in significant improvement without downtime. The new Carboxyfacelift represents a safe alternative to more aggressive treatments.

A study published in the Journal Experimental Dermatology showed that a green tea spray reduced the damaging effects of ultraviolet light. Researchers from the Hospitals Case Medical center in Cleveland extracted polyphenols from green tea and mixed in into a solution. The mixture was then sprayed on the skin of ten volunteers before being exposed to ultraviolet light. The study found that the skin sprayed with tea resisted cancer related damage. the tea appears to boost the skins in-built immune system.

Celluite treatemtns are plentiful from magical creams to a varied array of devices incluidng velashape, triactive, thermage, etc. These treatments effects vary and do not last. A safe combination approach is described that is popular in Europe and South America. In Brazil alone over 1,000 physicians use a combination Of Mesotherapy (small injections of numbing solution) combined with injection of carbon dioxide gas ( carboxytherapy). In about 10 sessions significant improvement in cellulite, stretch marks, loose abdominal skin can be achieved without only slight swelling.The cost is less than combarable treatments with comparable or better results.This combination is effective and will imporve cellulite as opposed to liposuction which actually worsens the appearance of cellulite.

Artefill the first cosmetic dermal filler to last has returned to the market. Other fillers last about one year or less. Artefill which contains cow collagen requires an allergy test in the arm four weeks before the material is injected. Approved for the fold between the nose and mouth, it is ideally suited to a non-surgical mid face lift, depressed surgical and acne scars. After liftng the scars it gives a long term ( over 5 year ) improvement. It is a soft material and easily injected. FDA data show that it lasts at least 5 years. It repesents a better value than short term dermal fillers which last 3-12 months.

Veneral Warts are sexually transmitted warts that occur on the penis , on the bone above the penis, and anal skin and on the thighs. The risk of skin cancer is rare. Just as in women the cause is HPV- human papilloma virus. There are several approaches for treatment. First men should be tested for other sesually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, syphilus, and hiv. Warts can be treated at home with either condylox or aldara. Condylox, an extract of of a plant, is used for three days, twice a day. The area is allowed to rest for 4 days. This can be repeated for 4 weekly cycles with an overall potential cure rate of 85%. Care should be taken to only treat the warts and not normal skin. Aldara is applied three times a week to the whole area for 4 weeks In men. Aldara works in only 38 per cent of cases. For those resistant to either medicine, in office treatments include freezing, electrosurgery, laser, or an acid solution. ( podophyllin). Often it can require several visits over a few months to eradicate the warts. Any treatment may damage the skin color. During and after treatment prevention with a latex condom is essential.Men must consider themselves contagious even when there are no visible warts and their partners must be checked by a gynecologist to prevent retransmission back to the male.

A useful approach for the face is injectable fillers. Fillers are used traditionally in the fold between the mouth and nose- the nasolablial fold. Other areas treated are the areas under the corners of the mouth- marionette lines. Heavy folds need to be evaluated from the perspective of the cheek.As people age, the normally rounded cheek flattens and shifts toward the fold making the fold deeper. If only the fold is injected it can not be totally corrected. A better approach is to rebuild the cheek and lift the fold. Filler can be injected under the zygoma the bone underneath the eye safely. This is a injectable cheek or mid-face lift. Lmitations are the volume necessary and how long the filler lasts. Artefill is well suited for this use because it lasts at least 5 years. The area can be corrected in 2 sessions gradually without the obvious lumpiness of fat transplants or cheek implants. The material is soft , is not prone to bruising ,and does not lump. The look is very natural and peasing and lasts for years.
