This month, we're taking a look at some tough problems that many of our patients face. Dark circles or sunken eyes are a common complaint, and while you might cover these with makeup or use topical products, did you know that Restylane can be used to get more lasting results?  We're also looking at an issue that's specific to men -- low testosterone. The hormonal changes that men experience as they age can cause many issues and increase the risk of certain diseases, but many people aren't aware of "andropause." Next, we've got a terrific option for people who have hyperpigmentation that just won't go away -- and it's not a laser, so nearly anyone can use it. Last, we see many women as well as men who are concerned about hair loss. Keep reading to learn about a supplement that can help give you stronger, healthier hair. 


Rejuvé offers a wide range of treatments to support your wellness inside and out. Have a question about anything you see here? Call us at 408-740-5320 to set up a consultation with Dr. Tang.

Wake Up Your Undereye Area with Restylane

There are all kinds of products that promise to help reduce the appearance of tired-looking eyes, whether by concealing discoloration, temporarily plumping the skin, or both. But did you know that Restylane -- which many of our patients have used on deep wrinkles -- can be an effective way to reduce the appearance of aged, tired eyes? And unlike makeup or creams that you apply each day, your results Restylane can last from 6 months to a year.

Restylane is popular with our patients because it's a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness even to deep wrinkles or hollows. It is made up of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA). Since it's not animal-derived, Restylane is well tolerated; plus HA is naturally found in your body and fully biocompatible.

Though Restylane is often used to restore volume to deep wrinkles like nasolabial folds, it can also be highly effective at helping to bring back volume around the eyes. As we age, we tend to develop hollows beneath the eyes in addition to wrinkles and creases. Restylane can help to plump up this area, smoothing out lines and reducing the appearance of undereye hollows or bags.

Are undereye circles making you look more tired or older than you feel? Now's the time to do something about it. Just for our readers, we're offering a FREE 30-minute one-on-one consultation with Dr. Tang about undereye circles. Call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to make your appointment, and be sure to mention this special!
Not Sure Why You're Tired? 
It Might Be Low Testosterone

If you (or your guy) have noticed changes in his mood, physique, or sexual appetite, it's possible that these changes were brought on by low testosterone (sometimes called "low T"). When men age, their hormone levels change. This results in less testosterone in the body than he had in his younger days. 

Research suggests that low levels of testosterone can put men at higher risk for diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and heart disease. A blood test can be used to learn whether your testosterone levels are low, but there are also other symptoms of testosterone deficit that can be more subtle. They can be broken into three broad categories:

Changes in mood or behavior: Testosterone is an energizing hormone (think how often testosterone is characterized as making men more aggressive). When testosterone levels wane, men often feel increased fatigue, decreased energy, and have trouble concentrating -- they simply have less interest or initiative, even for activities they used to enjoy. This can contribute to having a low mood or even developing depression can also occur. For some men, increased irritability or short-temperedness stem from low testosterone levels.

Changes in physique: When testosterone levels ramp up at puberty, boys increase their muscle mass and often experience growth spurts. Taking away that testosterone means that its muscle-promoting effects are reduced, and men may find that they are losing muscle mass and/or that they are having trouble building up their muscles. At the same time, men often develop increased body fat, especially around the midsection and in the chest.

Changes in sexual function: We think of testosterone as the male sex hormone, so it's no surprise that reduced testosterone leads to many changes in men's reproductive health. In addition to simply losing interest in sex or having a lower libido, low testosterone levels can cause difficulty with arousal, erectile dysfunction, loss of sensation, difficulty ejaculating, and a lower quantity of ejaculate. Testicular shrinkage can also be an outcome of low testosterone.

The good news? There are effective options when it comes to restoring your testosterone levels. If you're experiencing these kinds of symptoms and are concerned about whether these could come from low testosterone, come in to Rejuvé to talk with Dr. Tang -- right now, you can get a one-on-one, 30-minute consultation about low testosterone for FREE. You can learn about the different treatment options that are available and whether you're a candidate. Call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to make your appointment, and be sure to mention this special!
An Easy Way to Eliminate Hyperpigmentation
Think you're stuck with stubborn dark spots, hyperpigmentation, or melasma? There's a solution. Cosmelan is a topical treatment that uses a combination of Kojic acid, phytic acid, and Vitamin C to block the enzyme tyrosine kinase. This enzyme is used to create pigment within your skin -- and since your skin can't create new pigment without it, as new skin cells are generated the dark pigments fade away.
Cosmelan is the strongest lightening system available, and even better, it's suitable for nearly all skin types. Many laser treatments do not produce good results for people with deeper skin tones, but Cosmelan is suitable for all skin colors. With lasers, you may run the risk of creating more pigment if you have darker skin, but Cosmelan doesn't have that effect. 

It's also effective on deep pigmentation no matter the source. That means whether you have melasma following a pregnancy, sun spots from too much time outdoors, or even if you have had a burn from a procedure, Cosmelan may work for you. All it takes is a quick, one-time treatment in our offices, followed by a topical treatment product that you use at home for 2 to 3 months. That's it! 

Rejuvé is one of the few clinics in the Bay Area that offer Cosmelan, which is manufactured in Spain. If you want to learn more about Cosmelan or other treatment options for hyperpigmentation, call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Tang.

A Supplement for Stronger, Thicker Hair
Both men and women come to Rejuvé to find treatments for their thinning hair. Hair loss has many causes, and finding a solution that works can be stressful. We offer several different treatment options, including Viviscal supplements. Viviscal is the top-selling hair growth supplement for women in the US. Keep reading to learn why it's so highly recommended.

Numerous studies over the past 25 years have shown that Viviscal is a safe and effective way to strengthen thinning hair from within and promote the growth of existing hair. It has a unique active ingredient, the AminoMar marine complex, as well as Biotin, Vitamin C, and apple extract. Last year, a panel of four medical professionals reviewed reviewed the latest clinical research and results for Viviscal, with their findings published in a supplement to the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD). Here are some of the results that have been obtained with Viviscal:
  • Patients experience an average 12% increase in hair diameter (the thickness of each hair) after 6 months.
  • After 10 weeks, one study found an average 46% reduction in hair loss.
  • In another study, 75.3% of patients had a significant reduction in hair loss. 
  • Patients experience an average 39% reduction in hair shedding after 3 months. 
You don't have to be experiencing hair loss or thinning hair to use Viviscal. It's actually a bit of a "trade secret" among hair care professionals, because this drug-free supplement can help improve the health, thickness, and volume of anyone's hair. It's especially popular with people whose hair is damaged or breakage-prone because of heat styling, coloring, extensions, or straightening.
