Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
Bruxism is defined as Excessive grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw.
This condition can affect adults and children, and can occur during day or night.
By injecting small doses of botulinum toxin directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding.
Hormone replacement therapy is becoming a popular treatment to work on symptoms of aging. The lines on your face can be related to a decrease in hormone levels – and improving your hormone levels will help to slow the aging process.
Hormone therapy is most often used to treat common menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and vaginal discomfort.
Hormone therapy has also been proved to prevent bone loss and reduce fracture in postmenopausal women.
Hormones of Youth
The hormone estrogen is responsible for skin look due to the hyaluronic acid it produces.
Estrogen not only affects your skin but also your muscle mass, metabolism, and energy levels.
Decline in estrogen levels is one of the main factors for dry skin, and fine lines around the mouth and on the forehead.
A woman’s estrogen is produced mainly by the ovaries until menopause.
You can take estrogen in the form of a pill, patch, gel, vaginal cream. If you experience only vaginal symptoms related to menopause, estrogen in a low-dose vaginal cream, tablet or ring is usually a better choice than an oral pill or a skin patch.
Testosterone is the hormone responsible for giving males their distinctly male attributes. However, men begin to experience a drop in testosterone levels as they get older. Low testosterone levels are linked to wrinkles, muscle loss, weight gain, and thinning hair.
Testosterone therapy can combat physical, sexual, and emotional changes that come with getting older, especially for a man.
It can also help you sleep better.
If you are concerned about your hormone levels and the effect they have on how you look and feel, you can have your hormone levels checked. If you do have low levels of one or more hormones, then estrogen and testosterone therapy are possible treatment methods to help you look and feel great.
Anti-aging medical specialists have been using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to bring up hormone levels in patients with age-related hormone imbalances. It’s the more natural way to feel young again.
Dermal fillers are used to treat lines created by lost collagen and fat. After botulinum toxin injections, dermal filler injections are the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Prime locations for the injections are two sets of parentheses: the pair of lines that extend down from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as the nasolabial folds, and another pair that extends down from the corners of the mouth to the chin, known as marionette lines.
These injections are used mainly to treat the expression lines of the forehead and between the brows. They work by partially immobilizing the muscles that form expression lines so the skin smooths out, although some deep expression lines may not go away. Botox is the familiar brand name. Other FDA-approved botulinum toxins are ,Jeuveau, Xeomin and Dysport.

Exosomes are nano-scale extracellular vesicles- exceedingly small packages of signaling information one-thousandth the size of a cell. They are produced by virtually every cell type as a means of intercellular communication. Exosomes contain proteins such as growth factors, enzymes, receptors, transcription factors and matrix proteins that govern cell structure, function and signaling. They are harvested from donated umbilical cords, purified, and packaged, and are free of all blood products, making them safe regardless of blood type. What does this mean for skin rejuvenation? Exosomes can be injected or microneedled into skin tissue to rejuvenate collagen in aging skin and reduce inflammation. Results include an improvement in skin texture, reduced scarring, improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, and even stimulated hair growth.
Skin elasticity is the key to a youthful appearance, which is the product of collagen.
During the first 5 years of menopause, collagen decreases by 30% and continues to lose 2% per year thereafter.

Facials are an effective step of any anti-aging regimen. As a person ages, their skin produces less collagen and elastin. This loss is responsible for the looser and thinner appearance of skin. The time it takes for new cells to reach the surface slows down as the body ages. The anti-aging facial treatment may include chemical exfoliation and other collagen producing techniques. These work by removing a microscopic layer of skin cells to accelerate the growth of a new one.
