Product Information

Stimulate RA is a retinoid serum formulated with the active form of vitamin A called retin-al or retinaldehyde. Retinal is well studied to decrease skin inflammation, stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, regulate melanin and increase the cellular turnover of the epidermis.

Hence, Vitamin A is known as a skin superhero and can be useful for a range of dermatological skin conditions such as melasma/pigmentation, sun damage, anti-ageing, acne/breakouts, skin inflammation and repairing damaged skin barriers.

“Starting Retinal/Retinol in your early 20s along with consistent sun protection will delay injectable treatments for lines & wrinkles” –Dr A Haq (Cosmedocs Harley Street)

Retinol studied extensively, is irritating to the skin—however, some individuals like that as it causes exfoliation. Retinal is a new advent to skincare due to improved technology to stabilise this molecule. Retinal would cause mild exfoliation; clinical efficacy is similar if not superior.

In preparation for the next post some anatomy revision…

Tear troughs can be very challenging. Often people have ideas that afterwards the area will be completely smooth and free of shadows.
.
But the truth is that eyes are much more complicated. There can be pigmentation, fat herniation, crepey skin, under eye bags... all issues that can make tear trough fillers more challenging, not as effective, or... quite frankly, not the best option
.
On the other hand... for many, it can effectively freshen up eyes within minutes.
.
So as challenging as tear troughs are, in some cases can be extremely rewarding. Key is making sure that it is the right treatment for you, and that the practitioner has experience.

Looking to enhance your Botox results for those pesky forehead lines and wrinkles? Consider dermal fillers! By adding volume to the area, dermal fillers can smooth out deep lines and wrinkles and create a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

While Botox works to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, dermal fillers work by plumping up the skin and filling in areas of lost volume. Used in combination, these two treatments can produce impressive results, helping you achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.

So if you’re tired of forehead lines and wrinkles getting in the way of your flawless complexion, talk to your dermatologist or cosmetic injector today about how dermal fillers can help enhance your Botox results. #dermalfillers #botox #foreheadlines #wrinkles #youthfulskin #aestheticmedicine #aestheticcourses

Using a needle, we can inject fillers into the dermis layer of the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This can help to smooth out the texture of the skin and create a more youthful and refreshed look. However, it’s important to note that injecting fillers into this layer requires specialized training and experience to ensure safe and effective results.

In addition to the dermis layer, fillers can also be injected into the bone to help address deeper hollows and shadows under the eyes. This technique requires a higher level of expertise as it involves precise placement of the filler to achieve the desired outcome.

Lastly, fillers can be injected into the fat compartment of the under eye region using a cannula. This method can help to add volume and smooth out any irregularities in the fat pads under the eyes. Again, specialized training and experience are crucial for safe and effective results.

Overall, the use of fillers in the under eye region can provide a non-surgical solution to address signs of aging and enhance the appearance of the face. However, it’s important to seek out a qualified and experienced provider who has received proper training in the use of fillers in this delicate area.

If you’re interested in learning more about how fillers can benefit you, please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule a consultation. Let’s work together to help you achieve your aesthetic goals!

Leg length difference can cause calf muscle size difference! 🦵💪 Did you know that the calf muscles in the longer leg have to work harder and can lead to hypertrophy over time? #leglengthdifference #calfmuscles #hypertrophy #fitnessfact #healthylifestyle

Besides the common causes of genetics, exercise It is possible for the shape of the heel bone to contribute to the appearance of larger calf muscles, but it is not a common cause. The heel bone, or calcaneus, is one of the bones that makes up the ankle joint, and it connects to the calf muscles via the Achilles tendon.
If the shape of the heel bone is such that it places more tension on the Achilles tendon, this can lead to increased stress on the calf muscles and potentially contribute to hypertrophy over time. However, this is typically a minor factor compared to other causes such as genetics, exercise, and hormonal factors.
It is worth noting that having a larger calf muscle due to the shape of the heel bone is not a medical concern and is generally considered to be a cosmetic issue. If someone is concerned about the appearance of their calves, they may wish to speak with a healthcare professional or a personal trainer to discuss potential strategies for achieving their desired look.

The mentalis muscle is a facial muscle located in the chin area. It originates from the mandible and extends downward to the skin of the chin. The primary function of the mentalis muscle is to control the movement and position of the lower lip and the skin of the chin. It plays an important role in activities such as speaking, smiling, and pouting.

In addition to its role in facial expression, the mentalis muscle also helps to maintain the position of the lower front teeth and the shape of the lower lip. Dysfunction or hyperactivity of the mentalis muscle can lead to the development of chin wrinkles, which are vertical lines that appear on the skin of the chin. Understanding the anatomy and function of the mentalis muscle is important for healthcare providers when performing aesthetic procedures in the chin area.

PRP is 3-step procedure that involves having your blood: Drawn from your arm. Placed into a machine that separates the platelets from the rest of your blood. Re-injected into you (only the part of your blood that contains a high concentration of platelets/growth factors).
PRP contains numerous growth factors such that are presumed to play a role in its beneficial effects. PRP may stimulate cells in the dermal papilla resulting in increased hair density and thickness. #PRP is also thought to play a role in stimulating #fibroblasts that can help with collagen remodeling.

Some individuals have lines right over the eyebrow which cannot be treated aggressively with #Botox alone due to risk of eyebrow dropping. Combining tox and fillers makes perfect sense and we’ve been doing it for years to stimulate collagen, fill up lines and relax muscle simultaneously.
