What are tetracaine dermal patches?

What are tetracaine dermal patches?

Patches: For newborns it is used for the site on venipuncture (heel) which is painful. Reason is Lidocaine (another good pain med) gets absorbed, tetracaine is only locally affecting the nerve endings in the skin without blood absorption (good for the neonatal, their liver being less functional).

I get cheeks with Restylane (dermal fillers) filler or perlane filler. How long filler lasts?

I get cheeks with Restylane (dermal fillers) filler or perlane filler. How long filler lasts?

Filler Duration: In my experience, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and Perlane last about 9 months up to and just over 12 months when used for cheek augmentation. Perlane should last somewhat longer than Restylane (dermal fillers) due to it's more heavily crosslinked ha design. ...Read more

Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

I avoid "permanent": Though Aquamid (and others)is not available in the US, it is in other countries. (if it's being offered in the US you should avoid that office altogether). I generally recommend that my patients avoid permanent fillers though, especially when they are young like you, because you don't know how your face will change over the next 20 years. You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read more

Stick with a hyaluronic acid filler or your own injected fat and a surgeon you can trust! ...Read more

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

Different drugs: Botox is what we call a neurotoxin. It's a purified protein that blocks the transmission of a signal from the nerve ending to the muscle. By doing so, it allows the muscle to relax and in turn, it gives the skin a chance to relax and the wrinkles disappear. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to fill depressions. It's usually used to reduce laugh lines or plump the lips. ...Read more
