Q: How do I determine if and when to start Botox injections? 

A: I get asked this question often. Botox is the number-one cosmetic procedure performed in the US. It is approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles, excessive sweating, and migraine headaches. Botox is approved for people ages 18 to 65, but only because that was the age range of the patients used in the FDA studies. I have personally treated patients from ages 12 to 88.Men and women of any age can have wrinkles and lines as a result of dynamic muscle movement in-between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. This can make us look tired, mad, or sad, even when we are feeling just fine. Botox was the first of three drugs approved in the US to treat lines by temporarily relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. This “Valium for the face” leaves you visibly refreshed for up to four months.

The best time to start getting treatment can be when the wrinkles you want to treat are minimally visible, thereby preventing a deep line from forming. If you start treatment after a wrinkle is fully formed, you can still decrease the age of your appearance while preventing further lines. The decision regarding when to start Botox treatment is a very personal one. Done correctly, everyone will notice how great you look, but no one will know you have had Botox injections. Consult your physician or go to botox.com.

Most of us lead busy lives and want to make healthy snack choices to give our bodies the nutrients and energy we need to keep us going. Reaching for an energy bar is an attractive choice for its portability and convenience, and bars can contain fiber and protein to keep us feeling full. Some bars are so tasty they may satisfy our chocolate cravings. An energy bar may seem like a quick and wise choice, however, this may be just the kind of fix to avoid. So what is the problem? Energy bars can be full of sugar and some give us over half of the maximum daily limit of dietary sugar. This is comparable to eating a candy bar and may not be the best dietary choice. So if you are looking to find a sustainable snack to satisfy your hunger throughout the day, grab almonds and walnuts. Eating fresh is the best way to give your body the nutrients it needs for peak performance throughout the day.

Do you dream of full, luscious lips? Lip augmentation is a very effective way to give your lips the smoothness and plumpness you may have lost or always wanted. The injectable dermal fillers, made out of an all-natural sugar, are the most common method of lip augmentation. Restylane is the only FDA-approved injection for the lips, but Juvéderm is another popular option. Both products can give a beautiful, natural look to the mouth when injected in an artful way, and these fillers dramatically improve the appearance of your lips by adding the shape, structure and volume you want. Worried about ending up with “duck lips?” I think the best approach is to find a picture from a magazine or the Internet of the lips you want. Take the picture to your appointment with your physician and discuss your personal options. Results last up to one year.

Living an active lifestyle is something we all desire to achieve, but our constant activity can do damage to our toes. Running, hiking and even walking, all contribute to constant friction on our toes, which can result in toenail trauma. No one wants to sport a sandal or open-toe shoe only to reveal such an injury. Signs of trouble in the toenail include splitting, thickening, looseness, white spots, and bleeding beneath the nail bed. It takes about four months for an injured toenail to regrow, if it does at all, so prevention is key. Keep your nails trimmed short and file the edges smooth so as to prevent ingrown toenails. It is important to wear properly fitting shoes and thick cotton socks to prevent trauma to the nail bed, especially when performing activities downhill.

Finding the perfect concealer can be difficult. When you are looking for redness coverage, under eye lightener, and long-lasting wear, it may seem unrealistic to find an affordable, “all-in-one” product. Boi-ing concealer by Benefit Cosmetics is called the “world’s best concealer,” and truly does it all. This award-winning concealer comes in five easy-to-match shades, imparts a seamless, natural finish—and won’t break your bank. Available at Sephora. $20

Hottest Cosmetic Procedure is Ultherapy

The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin--including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift--without disturbing the surface of the skin.

At VanderVeer Center in Portland, Oregon there's a way to stand firm in the face of gravity--on your terms. With Ultherapy, there's no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

You can see 20% of your results immediately, and the rest will unfold over the course of 2-3 months. Some people have reported continued improvement for up to one year, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. VanderVeer Center has amazing patient results, Call us for a complimentary consultation. We are open 9:00am-6:00pm, seven days a week. 503-443-2250.

 


The secret of youth: Sleep like a baby

By Elizabeth VanderVeer, M.D, October 2013

 

 

In the midst of our busy lives, finding time to get enough sleep is a challenge. Our days and nights are jam-packed with not only our own schedules, but with the agendas of our family and friends. Our digital world – now available 24/7 – has resulted in an extended work day and a later bedtime. We live in a “round-the-clock” society; sleep seems to be the first thing to go and is often the last thing on our minds.

Losing an hour or two of sleep might not seem like a big deal at the time, but a lack of sleep can have serious effects on our health and can speed up aging, as well. We need more hours of sleep when we are young, and fewer hours as we age. Even so, The Sleep Foundation finds that healthy adults need seven to eight hours of sleep every night.

Despite this modest sleep requirement, many of us have sleep debt. This debt is the accumulated amount of sleep lost to poor sleeping habits, sickness, waking up in the night and environmental causes. When we are younger, we can flex our nightly sleep pattern with little consequence because our bodies are able to “make up” the hours with long weekend slumber. So long as we average out our sleep over a week or so, we can handle wide variations in our nightly respite in our youth.

As we age, we lose our ability to flex and compensate for these variations. Consequently, our nightly sleep becomes significantly more important. People who have sleep debt are often unaware of it and may be suffering the ill effects arising out of this newly described phenomenon.

A first-of-its-kind study commissioned by Estee Lauder found that poor sleepers had increased signs of skin aging. It involved 60 pre-menopausal women ages 30 to 49, with half of them falling into the “poor sleeper” category – meaning a person who has high sleep debt. Primary Investigator Elma Baron, MD, presented the data at the International Investigative Dermatology Meeting held Spring 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland, in an abstract titled ”Effects of Sleep Quality on Skin Aging and Function.”

“Our study is the first to conclusively demonstrate that inadequate sleep is correlated with reduced skin health and accelerating skin aging. Sleep deprived women show signs of premature skin aging and a decrease in their skin’s ability to recover after sun exposure,” said Dr. Baron, director of the skin study center at UH Case Medical Center and associate professor of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. “Insufficient sleep has become a worldwide epidemic. While chronic sleep deprivation has been linked to medical problems such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and immune deficiency, its effects on skin function have previously been unknown.”

The study found that poor-quality sleepers had increased signs of fine lines, uneven pigmentation, reduced elasticity and slackening skin, while the good-quality sleepers had a 30% higher skin recovery time to skin stressors such as sun.

We seem to look at sleep as the first thing to go when there is not enough time in the day. But, perhaps we should be rethinking and re-prioritizing our views on this subject. We know a lack of sleep can affect our health in negative ways such as leading to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and weight gain and now premature aging!

So, if you find yourself wishing for more youthful looking skin, getting more sleep is an investment that will absolutely pay off. A good night’s sleep is an easy price to pay for younger looking skin and may indeed be priceless.
