What is the latest advancement in Telemedicine Devices?

Telemedicine technology is advancing at a rapid rate, and some healthcare providers  are finding it hard to keep up. There are now a host of devices that have been integrated into the health care system, which make the process easier for physicians and patients. But what is the latest advancement in telemedicine devices.

New telemedicine devices are emerging every day, but one of the most innovative products is the infotainment system with eye tracking technology developed by Onyx Healthcare. The device is similar to other infotainment solutions in that it  combines information and entertainment capabilities.

Traditional infotainment systems are controlled by a remote control or a touchscreen terminal. However, the latest infotainment device by Onyx goes a step further, because it’s equipped with eye tracking technology.

The eye tracking feature is a game-changer for patients that are disabled, or have limited mobility. With just a few simple eye movements, they can access the bedside terminal without needing assistance.  This unique system gives them some measure of independence as it allows them to view their medical records, request a visit from a doctor or nurse, and also look through the various channels to find the specific TV show they’d like to watch.

The device is certain to provide patients with a great deal of satisfaction, by giving them equal access to bedside terminals, despite their physical limitations.

The bedside terminal has a 15” PC panel that is attached to a built-in monitor arm. It also has an external hot swap battery system that ensures optimal power availability.

Contact Onyx Healthcare USA Inc, Orange, CA to find out more about this infotainment system, or any of the other medical solutions we have available.

IPL vs Chemical Peels: Which is best for spring facial rejuvenation?

Its spring and summer is just around the corner, so you’re probably thinking that it’s a good time to prep your face for the warmer months. There are many choices out there including IPL therapy and chemical peels, but you may not be sure which is best for your spring facial rejuvenation.

IPL (intense pulsed light)is a non-invasive treatment that uses light to brighten and tone the skin. IPL aids skin rejuvenation by stimulating collagen. It addresses issues associated with photo aging including wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun spots, and large pores.  It can also be used to improve acne scars, uneven skin tone, and rosacea.

Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a great way to eliminate blotchy patches and refresh the skin. The chemical solution exfoliates the topmost layer of dead skin cells, to reveal healthy, glowing skin once it strips away. Peels address skin irregularities such as sun spots, acne, and large pores.

Which is best for spring facial rejuvenation?
Both IPL and chemical peels are great facial rejuvenation options, and can get your skin spring-ready. The choice really depends on the specific needs of your skin.Chemical peels are effective for dealing with problems that affect the surface layer of the skin, but IPL is more effective for deeper skin issues. IPL is a more in-depth treatment that provides an overall facial rejuvenation treatment.

If you want to get your skin ready for spring, contact Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, located in Pewaukee, WI, to learn more about the options available. We will get you looking your best, so that you can feel confident going into spring.

How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need to see results?

If you are healthy and in pretty good shape, but have a few areas of stubborn fat that you can’t seem to shake, CoolSculpting may be the solution for you. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction device that eliminates fat by freezing it. But where can it be used and how many CoolSculpting treatments do you need to see results.

Where can CoolSculpting be used
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved device that is designed for use on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and back. Italso has a smaller applicator for contouring fat below the chin.

How does the CoolSculpting treatment work?
A protective gel pad is placed over the area being treated before the suction applicator is applied. The applicator pulls in the fatty tissue, and delivers precisely controlled cooling to the areas being targeted for fat reduction. Patients will feel intense cold at the start of the procedure, but the area will go numb after a few minutes. The cool temperatures freeze and destroy the fat cells, which are then flushed by the body.

How many CoolSculpting treatments do you need to see results?
It generally requires 1-3 CoolSculpting treatments to see results. However, the number of sessions needed will be influenced by the amount of fat that has to be treated, as well as your aesthetic goals. Most patients notice some improvement about 3 weeks after treatment, but it can take up to 2 months for the final results to be seen.

If you have pockets of unwanted fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be a good choice for you.

CoolSculpting is available at Skin Cancer Specialists P. C. & Aesthetic Center in the greater Atlanta metro area.

Can men get Botox?

How much do Botox treatments typically cost?

Millions of people around the world now regularly get botox injections to keep them looking young. So botox is likely the most well-known non-surgical cosmetic procedure. But although it has become so commonplace many people are still not aware how much botox treatments typically cost.

What is botox and how does it work?
Botox or botulinum toxin type Ais a drug that is used in cosmetics to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works by temporarily inhibiting the normal nerve impulses to the muscles. Without these impulses, the muscles won’t contract, thereby giving the wrinkles a chance to smooth out.

Botox works best on frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet, which are lines caused by muscle activity. The injections are done using a very fine needle, therefore discomfort is minimal. The results gained with botox usually last 3-6 months.

How much does botox typically cost?
The cost of botox varies, as some physicians charge based on the number of units used, while others calculate their fee based on the size of the area being treated. Botox is dispensed by the manufacturer in vials of 50 units or 100 units, and most doctors then dilute the drug with sterile saline.

The typical cost for botox injections in 2016 was $385. This figure was published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.Patients are charged per unit of botox, and this can range anywhere from $10-$20 depending on the state you live in, and the preference of the provider.

Since the cost of botox can be so variable, clients should verify the fee with their provider during the initial consultation.

Botox cosmetic treatment is available at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, El Paso, TX.

Am I an ideal candidate for Kybella?

If you have fat below the chin chances are you’re frustrated by the fact that it seems to hang on stubbornly no matter what you do. Chin liposuction can sculpt the area for you, but now there is also a revolutionary new treatment called Kybella. But how do you know if you are an ideal candidate for Kybella.

Kybella is a unique injectable treatment for fat below the chin (submental fat), and that works quickly and effectively to melt away unwanted fat. Kybella is a form of deoxycholic acid, which isa naturally occurring substance that the body uses to break down and also to absorb fat.

What happens during Kybella treatment?
Your doctor will use a tiny needle to inject Kybella into multiple areas below the chin. The drug then gets to work to disrupt the membranes of the fat cells. Once the fat cells die they are removed from the body via the normal waste process.
Most patients achieve optimal results with Kybella after 2-4 sessions.

Am I an ideal candidate for Kybella?
If you struggle with excess fat below the chin aka a ‘double chin,’ and you’d rather not undergo any type of extensive surgery, you may be a good candidate for Kybella. You should also be at a healthy weight, and have realistic expectations about the treatment. Kybella can benefit patients in all age groups.  However, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to dissolve your double chin, Kybella may be the right option for you.

How does a functional rhinoplasty differ from a cosmetic rhinoplasty?

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your nose? You can fix it with rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty also known as a nose job, is a procedure that is done to reshape the nose and correct irregularities. It can be done for functional or cosmetic reasons, but how do the procedures differ.

How functional rhinoplasty differs from cosmetic rhinoplasty
The goals of functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty are not the same.  The goal of functional rhinoplasty is to correct a problem with the function of the nose, while cosmetic rhinoplasty is aimed at improving perceived flaws in the appearance of the nose.

Functional rhinoplasty is done because the nose is not functioning optimally, and this usually affects breathing and impacts overall well-being.Functional rhinoplasty may be carried out to correct issues relating to the nasal architecture such as a deviated septum, nasal injury, or obstructed airways.  Nasal septoplasty is the procedure that repairs a deviated septum, and turbinate reduction surgery fixes obstructed breathing.

Cosmetic rhinoplasty changes the appearance of the nose, in order to address aesthetic concerns. This may involve removing a nasal hump or bump, or adjusting the size or shape of the nostrils.  Individuals choose cosmetic rhinoplasty so as to alter a characteristic of their nose that they are unhappy with.

Functional rhinoplasty has to do with function, while cosmetic rhinoplasty focuses on form. Depending on the concerns that need to be addressed, a combination of both procedures may be required.

If you are contemplating nose surgery, be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for advice.

Clients in the greater Houston area can contact Dr. Bryan Correa of Correa Plastic Surgery, located in The Woodlands, TX.
