Trending stories about “filler fatigue” or overuse of fillers may have left you wondering if using dermal fillers long-term can “ruin” your face or have lasting unwanted effects. The short answer is that fillers are temporary and won’t permanently change your face.

However, there are factors that can affect your filler results to be aware of before sitting down for your appointment. Here, we take a more in-depth look at how to avoid filler mishaps and looking overfilled.

Hyperhidrosis, more commonly referred to as excessive sweating, is a condition that causes heavy sweating, even when you have not been exercising or feel particularly warm.

What Causes Excessive Sweating? 

Hyperhidrosis can be caused by genetics, known as primary hyperhidrosis, or as a result of certain medical conditions or medications, known as secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis happens when nerve signals tell sweat glands to “turn on” even when not needed. This often results in heavy sweating under the arms, but can also affect the palms of your hands and soles of your feet.

No, the vampire facial isn’t a Halloween trick — it’s actually a total treat for your skin. If you haven’t heard of this trending treatment yet, take a look at this quick guide to find out if PRP facial rejuvenation could be just what your skin needs.

During a vampire facial, PRP collected from your own blood is used as a serum during and after the microneedling process to enhance absorption and to stimulate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.
