What causes under-eye bags?
Bags under the eyes can be a real source of worry for many patients. Under-eye bags can make patients look tired and aged, and many people may seek a solution to this issue to make their under-eye area appear brighter and smoother. The primary cause for under-eye bags is age, as the fat around the eye area is displaced and the tissues in the area, including in the muscles in the lower eyelid, weaken. This can cause a puffy appearance, and fluid can accumulate in the area below the eye, adding to the appearance of swelling.
Using Botox for under-eye bags
Botox has been approved in the last decade and a half for a number of cosmetic and medical uses. Botox, made of botulinum toxin A, can safely and effectively treat forehead lines, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet, and researchers continue to test new ways to use the neuromodulator. One of the lesser known treatments is Botox for under-eye bags. One study in 2003 found that Botox for u ...
How Botox for men works
Botox is a neuromodulator that can be used to relax the underlying muscle that causes dynamic wrinkles in the face. Made of botulinum toxin A, Botox works just as effectively on men as it does on women. When injected into the muscle, Botox will temporarily paralyze the injected muscle, effectively preventing wrinkles and lines to appear as the muscle will not contract, thus lessening the appearance of the wrinkles. Botox for men will typically provide results for 3 to 4 months, and treatment can be repeated, though no more often than once every 3 months. While some results may be seen a few days after treatment, the patient should not expect to see optimal results until 1 to 2 weeks after injection.
What areas to inject Botox for men

What is Synvisc One?
Synvisc One, also known as Hylan G-F 20, is a single-use intra-articular injection made from hyaluronan. Synvisc One is an effective treatment to help relieve pain and delay surgery in patients living with osteoarthritis of the knee. This injection works by implanting a fluid that is similar to synovial fluid, which is the fluid in the joint that lubricates and absorbs shock. When there is not enough of this fluid in the joints, it can lead to pain and limited mobility. Hyaluronan, the key active ingredient in Synvisc One, is also naturally present in the fluid of the joints and helps return functionality and reduce pain once the patient is treated with Synvisc One. When patients are treated with Synvisc One, they can expect relief from osteoarthritic pain for up to six months.
Side effects of Synvisc One
While treatment with Synvisc One is very safe and effective, there are some common mild side effects that may occur. Approximately 1 in 14 patien ...
