The ABC’s of Facial Fillers

Although they are already part of the beauty routine of many, there are some that need help understanding what facial fillers can do for you. Here you go!

October 12, 2017 —

Miami, FL, October 6, 2017- Although they are already part of the beauty routine of millions of men and women, facial fillers are not well understood throughout the population. Consumers are still calling all injectable fillers ‘botox’ and don’t know about their multiple functions in the aesthetic world.

There is so much that can be done with injectables now.  There are incredible techniques and the service menu options have increased dramatically says Joey Chancis, founder of The LABB Aesthetic Beauty Bar, www.botoxlabb.com. The LABB specializes in cosmetic treatments and injectables and has locations in Florida and Los Angeles, California.

Chancis, together with Jennifer Leebow, Nurse Practitioner at The LABB, gives the general rundown of the main products used in the cosmetic market. They talk about the product makeup, the techniques applied to each one and the results they each yield.

Chancis adds that these types of treatments are to better the appearance. They can do anything from soften expression lines or wrinkles, volumize lips, eliminate under-eye bags, or start preventative procedures on younger patients.

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus: Lasts 9-12 months. Used to add moderate volume in the areas of the cheeks and lips.

Volbella: Lasts 9-12 months. It is less dense and adds less volume than Juvederm. Used to eliminate smile/frown lines and smoker’s lines. Oftentimes, it is used to add very subtle volume to the lips.

Vollure: Lasts up to 18 months. This product was recently approved by the FDA. It has the same density as Juvederm, with more duration. It is ideal for the patients that are satisfied with their treatments and would like to make them more permanent.

Voluma: Lasts up to two years. This is the densest product and is used in the larger areas that require volume and elasticity. It is ideal for the cheek area, as it offers an instant lift.

Age, Errors, and Cost

Experts say that the adequate age to start injectable treatments varies from person to person. The genetic makeup, the lifestyle, and personal preference play a role in the condition of the skin and the aesthetic “needs” that the patient might have.

Leebow says that Millenials don’t want to resort to plastic surgery, but with the excess of photos and selfies taken, they care about how they look. The LABB’s recommendation is that they start treating themselves from an earlier age, so they can prevent the sagging of the skin.

She explains that these injectables not only lift, soften and contour the face, but they delay and avoid the breaking of collagen in the skin. Like all treatments, it is of utmost importance to hire certified professionals with experience that are using FDA-approved products.

Chancis reassures by saying that the risk is minimal, so long as the patient has realistic expectations. The LABB team takes the time to talk to and educate their patients so they understand what they need. They do not inject if it is not necessary. The team is looking for symmetry and the best natural result possible.

BOSTON — A pharmacist charged with murder in a meningitis outbreak that killed 76 people knew that mold and other bacteria were growing inside the filthy production rooms and that drugs shipped to customers were not sterile, but chose to do nothing, a federal prosecutor told jurors Friday. Glenn Chin, the supervisory pharmacist at the now-closed New England Compounding Center in Framingham, ignored warning signs that his production methods were unsafe and decided instead to gamble with patients' lives, Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Strachan said during closing arguments.

Spacewalking astronaut copes with frayed tether, bad jetpack

Oct 21, 2017

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A spacewalking astronaut successfully replaced a blurry camera outside the International Space Station on Friday, but had to contend with a balky jetpack and a frayed safety tether. Both jetpacks and safety ties are crucial for saving a flyaway astronaut. NASA said Joe Acaba was always securely attached to the orbiting outpost and never in any danger during the nearly seven-hour spacewalk. But one of his tethers had to be replaced shortly after he and station commander Randy Bresnik floated outside. Mission Control noticed the red lifeline was frayed and worn. Bresnik went back to the...

Searchers in Mexico find, but release, vaquita porpoise calf

Oct 21, 2017

MEXICO CITY — Researchers trying to catch and enclose the last survivors of the vaquita porpoise species captured a calf but released it because it was too young to survive without its mother. Mexico's Environment Department said veterinarians determined the calf was too young and experts said it was showing signs of stress after capture. The experts with Mexican-led international effort known as VaquitaCPR still saw hope in the calf's capture. "The successful rescue made conservation history and demonstrates that the goal of VaquitaCPR is feasible," said Environment Secretary Rafael Pacchiano. "No one has ever captured and cared for a...

Study: World pollution deadlier than wars, disasters, hunger

Oct 21, 2017

NEW DELHI — Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 — about 9 million — could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure, according to a major study released Thursday in The Lancet medical journal. The financial cost from pollution-related death, sickness and welfare is equally massive, the report says, costing some $4.6 trillion in annual losses...
