Injectables are Commonplace Now

In today’s society, health and wellness has become an increasingly popular issue. From specialized diets and digital exercise routines to hi-tech laser treatments that help turn back the hands of time on your skin. But one practice has become especially popular in recent years, due to new and improved solutions that are becoming safer and widely embraced by consumers across the globe…injectables.

In the early days of cosmetic treatments, when injectables were first gaining popularity, there was a lot of uncertainty around the safety of the practice, and a lot of doctors were not familiar enough with proper techniques which often made the practice noticeable in clients who received them, and the result was not always a natural or subtle look.

Today, thanks to the widespread popularity of injectables, consumers in virtually every age bracket and in both sexes are eagerly incorporating various forms of injectables into their regimens due to their natural-looking results and abilities to improve overall aesthetics of various areas of the body.

Injectables are used to relax facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines”, contour the body such as reducing the appearance of a “double chin” and improve the signs of facial fat loss by creating structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. There are different types of injectable procedures that improve various areas of concern. Injectables can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the hands, earlobes, buttocks and virtually any other area that needs correcting.

Most Popular Injectables

Botox: an FDA-approved injectable to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.

Kybella: the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

Juvéderm: Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind Juvederm. Getting treated with Juvederm helps add volume to different areas of the face without surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface.

Restylane: Restylane smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, provides subtle lip enhancement, smooths the lines around the mouth, adds lift and volume to the cheeks, and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands.

Sculptra: an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.

Dysport A prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.

Radiesse: a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting.

Xeomin: frown lines form when facial expressions are made and the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.

Dermal fillers and injectables are among some of the most popular cosmetic treatments, offering near-instant results with no downtime and no surgery. The Herschthal Practice offers a number of proven dermal filler and injectable treatments to help men and women of all ages achieve their cosmetic goals.

SoMe: A Revolutionary New Skincare Product

SoME is a revolutionary new skincare product that uses a proprietary blend of ingredients created with your very own personal blend of Platelet Rich Plasma. To say that it is a customized skin care experience would be an understatement! There is a vast array of anti-aging creams, serums, injections and procedures that can be done to potentially confer cosmetic benefits to you. None of those options are truly customized for your skin in the way that SoMe is.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

platelets

Platelet Rich Plasma is also known as autologous conditioned plasma. PRP is a concentrate that consists of platelet-rich proteins that come from blood—plasma proteins. They are obtained by spinning the blood in a centrifuge so that the red blood cells are separated out and all that’s left is the PRP. PRP has been seeing greater interest and testing in a variety of medicinal arenas, most notably tissue repair and other orthopedic concerns.

Why is PRP Good For Your Skin?

Well, if PRP is a promising lead on tissue regeneration in orthopedics, the real question is why? PRP contains a wide variety of growth factors that your body uses to facilitate its own natural regenerative abilities. Manufacturing these and combining them with a compatible topical formulation has been proven to confer anti-aging benefits to the user. Don’t believe us? Check out our before and after pictures on our Science Behind SoMe page!

A randomized blind split-face study was done to test the potency of the product. One experiment consisted of just using the SoMe base as a skincare product—and while it did confer some benefits to the user, it was clear that the real results came from a combination of our proprietary base and the PRP. In other words, SoMe has shown to be a potent natural restorative product that reduces the degeneration of the skin by supplementing the collagen and elastin in the skin. As you may know, collagen and elastin production gradually decreases naturally with age.

How is SoMe Used?

Usage is simple! After having the product created using your own PRP, you simply include it in your daily skincare routine. SoMe is best used after cleansing the skin and before applying any sort of moisturizer or sealant. One of the many benefits of SoMe is that it is indiscriminately beneficial in terms of facial rejuvenation. Many people often have different products for different parts of their face. They may choose to wear a lotion for their face while also applying a particular product to deal with wrinkles on the forehead or next to the eyes. The skincare benefits of SoMe are not particular to one part of your face or another.

Can SoMe be Used With Makeup?

Absolutely! SoMe can be used with almost any makeup products. Additionally, we are happy to say that SoMe has also passed all industry-standard irritation tests performed by Aesthetics Biomedical. Still, you should always seek your physician’s counsel if you have a skin condition such as eczema. While it has shown no particular irritation in those with eczema, it is still important to keep your doctor in the loop.

Storing SoMe

Because SoMe is a product created with your very own blood plasma, making it one of the most customized skincare products available, it also means that ordinary room temperature storage will not suffice. To keep the maximum platelet viability, SoME must be refrigerated. The proprietary base that is mixed with the PRP is what allows the PRP to achieve a longer shelf life by preserving its potency for about 3 months.
