Sleep Apnea: What it is and How it is Treated

Sleep Apnea: What it is and How it is Treated

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects a large portion of the population. You have probably heard the term used before but may not understand what it means. This is a medical condition that is treated in a variety of ways. Are you at risk for developing sleep apnea and how is it diagnosed? Here is a little information to explain it.

Sleep Apnea – what it is

In the simplest of terms, sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that affects the amount of oxygen a person’s brain gets while they sleep. This condition interrupts the natural flow of air during sleep. There is a variation of this disorder called obstructive sleep apnea where an individual will stop breathing for several seconds during a period of sleep. It may only last ten seconds or so but this pattern repeats throughout the night.

Another variation of this is central sleep apnea which has some of the same symptoms but is a more serious problem.

What is the cause of sleep apnea?

Breathing is something we do without even thinking about it or being conscious of the fact we’re doing it. During sleep, our breathing slows down because it is being controlled by our subconscious. The muscles at the back of the throat are supposed to open the airways when the brain signals the body to breathe. During obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles are not as efficient at holding the airways open. For central sleep apnea, the brain itself is at fault here. The signal to breathe is not being sent correctly. This is a much more serious problem because then it is neurological instead of being a muscle function.

People at risk for developing sleep apnea are overweight individuals, people who smoke, drink, and also those with restricted muscle function or a narrow airway.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

One of the first symptoms and one that many people recognize is that you forget to take a breath during the night. Your sleeping partner may have mentioned that you skip a breath at night or you snore very loudly. This is another indication, very loud snoring.

Another issue is fragmented sleep. When a person with this condition sleeps, they do not have restful sleep because it is disrupted several times during the night. Over time they start to develop problems with blood pressure and memory from lack of sleep and low oxygen levels.

What is the treatment for sleep apnea?

You will also be taught the best sleeping positions to help your airways to breathe naturally; most people find that sleeping on their side helps to keep their airways open at all times (health practitioners should look at our course on how to add sleep apnea treatment to their business).

Most often, the first and best type of therapy is behavioral therapy. The goal here is to remove the risk factors to reduce instances of sleep apnea. You may be encouraged to lose weight, stop smoking, drinking, and sleep in positions known to increase airflow while sleeping. Side sleeping is more preferable to sleeping on your back because the tongue cannot block the airway. You may also be prescribed oxygen therapy through a CPAP or continuous pressure machine.

Sleep apnea is a continuing problem for many people but health professionals are finding increasingly better ways of treating it.

Laser Treatment Eliminates Varicose Vein Problems

Laser Treatment Eliminates Varicose Vein Problems

A laser is a beam of light that is used as an instrument for cutting using heat. Doctors use a specific type of laser for getting rid of varicose veins. Heat can damage veins, causing them to close off by creating scar tissue. When this happens the vein is basically dead and will disappear over time.

Laser treatments are also effective at treating tiny spider veins. For Endovenous laser treatments a doctor with specialized training uses a small catheter tube to enter the vein. This is specifically for large type varicose veins. Treatments are performed about every 12 weeks or so. Most often more than one session is needed to eliminate most spider veins and larger varicose veins. The doctor will determine how many treatments are needed and how often.

What to Do After Treatment

You should have no problem resuming normal activities following the treatment. The recovery time is minimal and does not require any special considerations. You may be required to wear a compression stocking for a while but you can still go for walks and exercise as usual. Check with your doctor before performing any strenuous exercise. After a couple of weeks, the doctor will perform an ultrasound to confirm that the vein has closed off and is no longer a problem.

When Is This Considered as Treatment?

Using a laser for treatment of spider veins is the easiest way to eliminate them. Laser treatment is often considered along with surgery in some cases. Endovenous laser treatment closes off large veins that would otherwise require surgery to close it. This is a less invasive procedure that works extremely well. It can be used for large and small veins.

Side effects from laser treatment can include:

● Changes in skin coloring, pigmentation
● Blood clots that occur in the vein being treated
● Pain, burning feeling after recovery

Side effects are less likely than with other procedures, but they do occur. The more experience your doctor has the less likely you are to experience any problems.

Considerations for Laser Treatments

When it comes to laser treatment, you should ask yourself a few questions before making your decision.

1.) Is the doctor experienced in this procedure?
2.) How many treatments will be needed?
3.) What is the overall cost for the treatment?

Any type of procedure requires careful consideration of all the facts before making a decision.

The Truth About Dermal Fillers

The Truth About Dermal Fillers

You have probably seen those commercials for wrinkle creams that claim they are the best alternative to surgery. Dermal fillers are different from Botox. They still use needles for the application but you still have control of the muscles in your face. You can smile without worrying. They fill in tiny lines and furrows by plumping and hydrating the skin. Topical skin creams add moisture and produce a radiant glow, but cannot do the job of dermal fillers.

Taking good care of your skin goes a long way towards preventing wrinkles. There are many things that cause your skin to age like gravity, losing fat tissue, and sun damage can make you look older.

Dermal fillers can help you regain that youthful look of radiant skin. Women in their 40’s can look years younger by filling in the lines around the eyes and mouth. It doesn’t take much and the effects are long-lasting.

The one drawback for some people is the use of needles. They are letting that fear hold them back. But in all honesty, the needles are a micro-gauge so they are tiny and thin. Any discomfort that you might experience lasts a short time. They are not like Botox so there is no concern for allergic reactions.

How to Use Dermal Fillers:

With dermal fillers, the material is injected directly into wrinkles on the forehead, nose, and around the mouth. It fills in these little hollows and plumps the skin making those tiny lines disappear. It makes the skin look firmer, softer, and younger. This treatment is usually done over the course of 3 months with improvements seen at every stage. Now if you combine good skincare with the use of anti-aging products you will retain that youthful appearance for longer periods.

Which Dermal Filler Is Best?

There are different dermal fillers for different purposes. They all are the best in their category. Dermal fillers hydrate the skin and make it look younger by smoothing away lines. Botox injections temporarily immobilize areas of the face to freeze wrinkles and smooth the skin. They do different jobs but they can also be used in combination with other treatments. Botox can be used on forehead furrows and dermal fillers can be used around the mouth and corners of the eyes to fill in tiny lines there. There is no one product that is the best because they all work well and perform different tasks.

Dermal fillers last a lot longer than some other treatments. They are temporary because you will need more eventually when the effects wear off. You will still need to practice proper skin care as well as use anti-aging products to keep your youthful glow.

Skin Resurfacing Can Get Rid of Acne Scars

Skin Resurfacing Can Get Rid of Acne Scars

There are many things that can age your skin. Poor diet, smoking, drinking, exposure to the sun, and genetics can make you look older. Brown patches called “age spots” also appear as you age. Skin resurfacing is a way to reduce the appearance of acne scars, blotches, and age spots.

No matter what type of technique is used, there is a risk of bad scar tissue forming when the intent to form good scar tissue. It is important to consult with an expert in skin resurfacing such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Consult a Professional

The first step when thinking about skin resurfacing is to consult with a professional. When you schedule a consultation you will have the opportunity to show the dermatologist the problems and discuss the treatment process and what to expect. This gives the doctor an idea of what you want to accomplish and to ensure that your goals are realistic.

Just like any other type of procedure, the doctor will ask about your medical history including allergies, medications you’re taking ( including topical skin creams) and previous surgeries or therapies. It is important to be as thorough and detailed as possible to avoid a potentially bad outcome. The doctor needs to know everything about you to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you.

Techniques

The techniques used for skin resurfacing include chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion. The basic principle is the same for all three techniques; you cause minor injury to the skin through needling or buffing and as it heals, it reveals the new skin underneath. Any time you get the smallest of injuries such as a cut on your finger or little scrape, the body reacts by sending antibodies and healing properties to the surface of the skin to aid healing. It works off this basic principle. Your doctor will contact your insurance provider to see if this procedure is covered. Some policies do not cover certain procedures.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion involves a technique to remove the very top layer of skin. When you skin your knee you scrape the top layer of skin. It is similar to this in that the top layer of skin is gently scraped to remove dead skin cells and encourage healing. This treatment is frequently used to improve the appearance of acne scars and uneven skin pigment.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to an area of the face. There are different strengths of solutions and techniques for application. The doctor monitors the skin for changes. Most often, the solution used is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that includes glycolic acid. These treatments improve the appearance of the skin over time. This also works well for reducing brown spots and fine lines.

Treatments are performed in the doctor’s office without the need for anesthesia. Since no anesthesia is used, you can drive yourself home after the procedure. You may experience a little skin tingling or stinging. The dermatologist will recommend products to use for maintaining skin tone at home.

Laser resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing has two different techniques that are used. The first one is similar to dermabrasion and chemical peels in that it removes the outer layer of skin. The second technique is called fractional resurfacing and uses a laser to make tiny holes in the skin. The downside to this technique is that it is harder to control the depth of penetration for facial skin.

Skin resurfacing can change and improve the appearance of the skin with continued treatments.

What is Mesotherapy Treatment, and Why Should We Offer it?

What is Mesotherapy Treatment, and Why Should We Offer it?

Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to surgery to firm up sagging skin. It works great for dull, dehydrated skin by giving it a much-needed boost. It works on areas of the face, neck, chest, and hands.

For this procedure, superficial needling is performed on the top layer of the skin, allowing the injectable solution to reach down into the dermal layers. The skin is hydrated and revitalized from the inside with better collagen and elastin production.

Mesotherapy can be used in place of hyaluronic acid for toning the skin and improving the appearance of wrinkles. The skin looks more vibrant and radiant after treatment. Treatments are administered about every 6 weeks for the best results. The benefits are even greater when used with a glycolic peel. The pores are open allowing the product to absorb better.

Can Mesotherapy reduce cellulite?

About 90% of women are affected by cellulite that collects on thighs, butt, hips, and stomach. It produces lumps or dimples on the surface of the skin that resemble the texture of an orange peel. The traditional treatment for cellulite is liposuction, but this does it faster and easier.

How is Mesotherapy performed?

The procedure must be performed by a doctor who has been trained in administering it. Using a very thin needle, the doctor makes several injections into the layers of skin. The injections are shallow and extremely easy. The amount and strength of the product are determined by each individual case. An injection is given once every 10 to 14 days until you see the desired results.

What are the side effects associated with Mesotherapy?

A little burning and soreness for a few hours afterward, but not much other than that. There is always some worry about a reaction with a product, but this is not something that generally happens.

Would you need more than one treatment to see results?

Every patient is different so it really depends on the person and their body. Some need more, others need less. You should be seeing results between 3 and 5 treatments.

Can a patient return to work right after treatment?

The procedure takes only 30 minutes to complete. In most cases, they can return to work right after receiving the treatment. There is no bruising or wearing bandages like traditional facelifts.

How often can a patient have treatments?

The procedure can be repeated after 10 to 14 days. Mesotherapy can be used on various parts of the body to reduce cellulite and to reduce signs of aging.

Mesotherapy is a quick and easy alternative to liposuction and other invasive treatments. Body sculpting can be achieved with this product and correct usage. In some cases, liposuction may work better, depending on the circumstances.

Online Botox Training Beats In-person Training for Students in San Diego

Online Botox Training Beats In-person Training for Students in San Diego

Why take an online course in Botox when there are so many local colleges in San Diego? To be precise, there are 36 colleges and several training centers in the area so why should students skip the traditional courses and opt to learn online? There are a couple of good reasons online Botox training is the better option.

San Diego State and Point Loma Nazarene, as well as UC – San Diego, have more than 150,000 people and 18,000 dorm rooms full of students. In this type of environment, it is hard to learn at your own pace because there are so many students in the class and there is no time to take things slow and ask questions. Who has the time to squeeze an extra course into an already busy schedule? In this situation, it makes more sense to opt for an online training course with more flexibility.

Benefits of Online Botox Training

Online training courses offer more benefits that in-person training courses. Out of all the colleges in the San Diego area, almost all of them offer some type of online learning because students need that flexibility to manage school and life. Many educators recognize this need for stability and offer training that students can do around their other obligations. Here are a few reasons online training is better:

You are able to feel relaxed and centered. In a busy class full of people talking, studying, and things going on around you it is easy to feel out-of-sync. People tend to be more at ease in familiar settings and educators like Dr. Howard Katz, lead instructor at Dentox and Botox training expert, have discovered that students learn differently and some do better in the comfort of their own home than in a noisy classroom. Dr. Katz uses a video camera to connect with students and present the information in a way they can understand and if they have questions they are answered in real-time.

In an online class, you can watch the recordings over and over to master a subject. No teacher wants to repeat information for every student who missed a class or is having trouble understanding the material. Students have unlimited access to the training videos and can rewatch them anytime, 24/7 until they have it down.

Student assessments are based on training materials and photo evidence. You never have to stand in front of a class or write on the board so there is no fear of embarrassment or peer pressure. You get real hands-on practice so you know that you have mastered the techniques.

Dr. Katz is available for students by email anytime. Students can email him with questions and get a response within 24 hours. When does that happen with traditional instructors? This personalization continues even after students graduate from the course.

So for those considering whether to take this training, it is worth it to invest in yourself and your ability to bring in more revenue for your business. Botox skills are in-demand and patients are looking for a practice that offers this service.

By choosing to take online Botox training with Dr. Katz you are choosing to learn from the best. There is no one more qualified or more knowledgeable on the subject of Botox applications than Dr. Katz. The training is easy and will serve you well for years to come.

Laser Therapy to Treat Varicose Veins

Laser Therapy to Treat  Varicose Veins

There is a way to treat spider veins and larger, varicose veins using laser technology called EVLT – Endovenous Laser Ablation. A doctor or vascular surgeon, certified in this technology can improve the look and feel of your legs.

A vascular surgeon is the only medical professional with the proper training to diagnose and treat vein problems in the legs. His expertise is in problems with the veins specifically and examines your arteries and medical history for clues to correct the problem. They look at everything relating to the patient, including any medications they currently take and any other medical diagnoses.

Endovenous Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (EVLT) and VNUS Closure

What typically happens during the procedure?:

During a procedure like this, you will be under sedation or perhaps a local anesthetic. A laser device that uses radio frequencies – the VNUS Closure device – is inserted through a catheter and into the skin of the affected leg. Under the close observation of the surgeon, a pulse of energy is delivered through the device and into the vein causing it to collapse and close. This energy is in the form of heat. The bad vein is now permanently closed and the other healthy veins take over and direct the blood flow to another area. Any symptoms you experience will disappear over a few weeks.

Since the procedure is done in the office, it is completed quickly and the patient is free to resume their activities with the help of compression stockings. Walking is encouraged to help the body heal itself, but avoid any strenuous exercise for a while until you get the doctor’s approval.

The surgeon you choose to perform this procedure should be someone with the latest cutting edge equipment and years of experience to reduce the possibility of any problems during the procedure. Taking more precautions will ensure a quick procedure with the least amount of pain or discomfort.

Injection Sclerotherapy Using Ultrasound

Using ultrasound and the tiniest of needles, Sclerotherapy is extremely effective at treating large varicose veins that can lead to further problems. The vein is injected with a liquid solution that causes an irritation inside the vein wall causing it to collapse. The vein is now closed off without the need for surgery. Two solutions, Asclera and Sotradecol, are FDA-approved for this purpose. Saline solution is not used anymore because it can cause scarring and burning.

Ligation and Vein Stripping

This procedure is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of the damaged vein. The patient is given a local anesthetic and must wear compression stockings afterward. Walking is highly encouraged and recommended.

Now you know more about vascular surgeons and laser therapy to get rid of varicose veins.

FAQ’s About Dermal Fillers

FAQ’s About Dermal Fillers

Are you curious about Botox or other dermal fillers? If you have questions about dermal fillers and how they work, it may help you to understand the basics to determine if this type of treatment is right for you.

How Popular is Dermal Filler Therapy?

It is extremely popular in places like North America where it is more common than cosmetic dentistry It is not restricted to women only, more men are using this treatment now than in the past. Most people have heard of this treatment so it is well-known just about everywhere.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin into areas like the folds of skin around the nose, tiny lines around the mouth, and other areas of the face to plump up and fill in those areas smoothing wrinkles away.

In past years, services like these could only be performed by plastic surgeons — or dermatologists. With new technology and training in these areas, these services are now performed by medical estheticians working in the doctor’s office.

Botox, on the other hand, is used to immobilize certain facial muscles to reduce the muscle movements that cause wrinkles. It is often used with dermal fillers as a complete treatment. The Botox restricts muscle movement and the fillers smooth and plump the skin making it appear younger and firmer.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

Typically, the results last around six months but may last a bit longer depending on the patient. They all work differently and some are designed to be temporary and others are more permanent. The risks with temporary fillers are limited because they seldom last longer than 18 months so if you don’t like the effects you just wait until it wears off.

Products like Juvederm and Restylane are at the top of the list for most popular fillers today since bovine collagen requires allergy testing in sensitive individuals. These products are comprised of Hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance that diminishes with age, and dermal fillers with it plump the skin giving it a natural appearance. Most often they last from 6 to 12 months and are used for a variety of facial lines and wrinkles.

Patient Concerns

Many patients are familiar with the names of these products and may already be using some of them. The concerns about side effects are minimal and have been very mild. There are few instances of problems since the effects wear off within 12 months with no permanent changes to the facial structure.

Doctors who offer dermal fillers like this can substantially increase their patient loads and their revenues by offering this service. They are required to go through an additional training course and be certified to administer it and the benefits are well worth it.
