How Long Does Aesthetic Procedures Last?

Have you ever wondered about the effectiveness or lasting period of aesthetic medicine or procedures? Aesthetic medicine or procedures are usually non-invasive which usually doesn’t require incisions and have less downtime.

This explains its rising popularity, although the results of aesthetic medicine do not equal their surgical alternatives. Here’s a general low-down on how long an aesthetic procedure will last:

  1. Chemical Peels

Shelf-Life: Temporary

With chemical peel treatments, new skin growth is stimulated and skin’s surface texture and appearance is very much improved. Different types of chemical peels yield a variety of results. A “lunchtime” peel result is mostly temporary while deep and medium peel results could last several years. Check out this video to view some experiences with chemical peels.

  1. Botox Injections

Shelf-Life: 3 – 6 Months

Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the formation of wrinkles so that the muscles don’t contract and form creases on the skin surface. Depending on the person’s metabolic rate, Botox injection results could last beyond 6 months. Read more about botox in this article.

  1. Dermal Fillers

Shelf-Life: 3 Months – 1 Year

The result of dermal fillers largely depends on the product and the location of the injection. Collagen fillers last up to 4 months, hyaluronic acid fillers last up to 12 months, calcium hydroxyapatite fillers last up to 18 months and Poly-L-Lactic acid fillers last up to 2 years before the body breaks them down and absorb it.

  1. Laser Spider Vein Treatments

Shelf-Life: Permanent

Spider veins usually appear as aging progresses and with this treatment, laser is utilised to send strong bursts of light through the skin to break up blood in spider and varicose veins so that blood is distributed back into the body. While the end result is permanent, new spider veins may crop up in other parts of the body caused by aging.

  1. Laser Hair Treatment

Shelf-Life: Usually Permanent

A permanent way to reduce or remove unwanted facial and body hair, laser hair treatment is usually a long-term reliable solution to ensure that hair growth is reduced so that skin appears smooth without any stubble.

What Is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy in Malaysia

Stem cells are simply cells that are able to change into other types of cells.

What is stem cell therapy? First of all we need to understand what stem cells are. Stem cells are simply cells that are able to change into other types of cells. The idea of stem cell therapy is that activated stem cells are placed in the body in order to help the body to regenerate cells that cannot be developed on their own.

Stem cells can divide and provide for the production of specialized cells, such as cardiac muscle cells, red blood cells and skin cells. These cells play a major role in the development of a human body.

Stem cells are generally located in embryos and within the cellular tissue of human adults. They are found in almost all tissues of an adult body, especially in the bone marrow and are usually in sleep mode, activated only when necessary.

The future of stem cell therapy

The potential of stem cell therapy is enormous, just think about the possibilities of the generation of healthy brain cells to combat the effects of Parkinson’s disease and dementia, or even to encourage the growth and re-employment of numerous areas of the body. Because the potential benefits of stem cell therapy are so great, there is a lot of research thrown into the precise effect of stem cells for human body.

The potential of stem cells is also seen in the cosmetic field, to prevent aging from the natural loss of collagen, help skin retains its volume and elasticity and the healing of scars.

There are already a number of products on the market that use stem cells as one of its ingredients or have the ability to activate them in your body in order to achieve a good cosmetic result. These are also available in injectable liquid form based on one’s body fat, better known as the “stem cell facelift”.

Also known as lipo-filling, this treatment have actually been around for quite a while before falling in popularity, although thanks to the focus on stem cells research, lipo-filling is now back as one of the most preferred filling treatments.

It works by removing fat cells from the body which will later be filtered in a laboratory. During the filtration, healthy cells distinguish themselves during the spin process of unhealthy cells, amongst which include stem cells that are activated by the centrifuge process from their sleep mode. These cells are then injected back into the skin, where the stem cells provide for wrinkle softening, the volume and reduction of scar tissue.

One of the most popular medical centres that provides stem cell therapy in KL, Malaysia is Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre.

History of Apple

If you haven’t heard of Apple Inc., or just Apple yet, I don’t know what you’ve been doing the last decennia. You even might be reading this on an Apple device. This could be for example an iPhone smartphone, iPad tablet computer or a Mac personal computer. But I bet there is a lot more history behind the world’s second-largest information technology company by revenue, the world’s largest technology company by total assets, and the world’s third-largest mobile phone manufacturer.

Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, founders of Apple Inc. in 1984

Let’s start at the beginning. Apple was founded on April 1, 1976, by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. The first thing they wanted to sell was the Apple I personal computer kit, which didn’t even had a case. This went on sale in July 1976 for $666,66. This was a huge success, and in the next few years Apple II and Apple III were created. More computers were designed in the next years as well and from 1980 the success was huge, but in the 1990s problems stared to come, because PCs were catching on with biggest competitors IBM and Motorola. However, in 2001, the Mac OS X made people going back to Apple’s computers. Also, in this year Apple opened its first Apple Stores. Like this wasn’t enough for a year, the iPod was released along with the iTunes Store that powered it, and the way music was consumed changed completely. The 2000s were great years for Apple, as they released more and more popular computers like the Macbook Pro and Air, iMacs and the Mac Pro. Then, in January 2007, Apple took another big step by making computers into smartphones, and so the iPhone was born. Later on, the same technology was used to create the iPad and iPod Touch.
