Beat Ageing with Restylane



Wrinkles and fine lines are first signs of ageing. Taking appropriate action at that very juncture is very important. Dermal fillers like Restylane can help fight ageing without much hassles, writes Dr Asha Doshi, Cosmetic Dermatologists, Dr Asha Doshi's Skin and Hair Clinic, Mumbai

There is a deep desire among everybody to look young forever and never step into old age. Given the kind of stress and pressure people face today, everybody has started to encounter ageing way too early. Appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is robbing us off the youthful look.

Preserving the healthy looking skin was not easy sometime back, but evolution of cosmetic procedures has made that easy now. If fine lines and wrinkles have become a source of worry, you can stop brooding about it. Cosmetic treatments have come a long way and help you regain your lost youthful appearance.
There are treatments available in the market which do not require any downtime for recovery, they are non-invasive and do not cause much pain. Dermal fillers like Restylane is one such simple way to catch up with the lost youthful glory and preserve it for long. As there is no requirement to go under a knife, it is making waves in the urban population.

Before getting into the treatments in detail, it is also important to understand the science behind the skin's ageing process. With age, the inner layer of the skin or the dermis begins to thin. The elastic and collagen fibres, which cause the skin to stretch, start to loosen out. Collagen degradation is believed to cause a decrease in skin tone and elasticity. The skin also loses its ability to retain moisture and to heal.

The sebaceous glands start producing lesser oil which in turn makes your skin drier than before.  Factors such as exposure to harsh sun rays, smoking, excessive intake of sugar and an unhealthy diet also make the skin age faster. Also, when one start to age the skin is unable to hold moisture, making it lose elasticity.

Restylane contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – a natural component of our skin. HA possesses the ability to retain and hold the moisture in your skin, and this is essentially the secret to youthful looking skin. Ageing robs us of this innate ability to hold in moisture. As we get older our bodies produce less and less HA. The drop in HA starts at around the age of 18-20 years. But after the age of 40 the effects become apparent. HA also supports the formation and maintenance of collagen, an important connective tissue.

When injected into the upper layers of the skin, Restylane deeply hydrates and nourishes it. Hyaluronic acid gel is implanted into the outer layers of the skin using microinjections and it works naturally to hydrate the skin from within, making the skin look youthful.

Exposure to sun results in wrinkles too and signs of ageing start appearing early on women’s face. The dermal filler replenishes the lost reserves of moisture and not only makes anyone look younger, but also more radiant and bright. It improves skin tone by restoring hydro balance and increases skin elasticity.

The best part of using Restylane treatment is that the effect lasts for up to a year. So if you are jostling with any ageing issue or wrinkles and fine lines is not letting you live in peace, then rest all worries with Restylane

Everybody knows ‘first impression is the last impression’ and students do not want to leave anything to chance.

Looking their best during the starting few days college to garner maximum eyeballs is students’ first priority. But it is not just the gadgets or the purse or the branded clothes that make them look good. A good, shining skin compliments every other thing. No matter how expensive clothes you wear, if the skin is dull, the whole look gets spoiled. The students know fact very well.

They can be seen making multiple visits to parlours and buying a variety of creams and masks, for the sake of glowing skin. How much that glow important is evident from the same.

But no matter what you have been doing to get the ‘ultimate glow’ on your face, the exhaustion of board exams’ preparation is still visible on your face, making it look dull and lifeless. The rigor of studies that made you fetch good marks in your board exams is apparent on your face and you are not able to get rid of it. You have tried all the alternatives, experimented with all the home remedies, but the shine has been ditching you.
“If you are encountering the same situation, then relax! To get a glowing face, you only need to visit your dermatologist and go for a session of Retylane Vital. The dermal filler will get you your desired glow in no time. Many students have been coming to me for the session,” said Dr Deepali Bhardwaj, Dermatologist, Dr. Deepali's Skin Clinic, Delhi.
The modern day dermal filler -- Restylane Vital -- does the wonder in just some minutes and in a very simple way. What more! This is not an effect that would last a few days. The glow and softness that come with the hydrophilic hyaluronic acid (that promotes water retention and absorption) stays for up to a year. So you would not need to worry about visiting the parlour again and again and spare that time in making new friends or having fun.
When injected into the upper layers of the skin, Restylane Vital deeply hydrates and nourishes it. Hyaluronic acid gel is implanted into the outer layers of the skin using microinjections and it works naturally to hydrate the skin from within, making the skin glow.

FOMC and likely impact on INR


Today India time 11:30 PM, US FOMC (Federal open Market committee) will conclude it’s two day meeting and issue decision on interest rates, monthly asset purchase program (QE) and most importantly issue a statement which will be used to make assessment about timing of rate hike. The monetary policy decisions by FOMC would have significant impact on global financial markets including India and in this brief note we try to predict market reaction on USDINR post FOMC.

The likely decisions
The current Fed fund target rate is 0.00%-0.25% and FOMC will not make any change in the rates. Monthly asset purchase (QE or quantitative easing) by Federal Reserve is USD 35 bn. divided into USD 15 bn. for mortgage backed securities and USD 20 bn. for treasury securities. FOMC meets twice a quarter and they are reducing the monthly purchase rate by USD 10 bn. every meeting and this time they are expected to reduce the overall QE to USD 25 bn.

Assessment of data and events
Federal Reserve’s objective is maximum employment with inflation at 2.00%. Hence they balance their decision on monetary policy after looking at the growth numbers which potentially impacts employment and inflation numbers including wage inflation, core inflation, and personal expenditure inflation. Let’s look at the changes in key factors since last meeting in June 18 –

A. Inflation
Last reading of US inflation released on 22nd July for the month of June was not strong. CPI inflation was only 0.3% compared to the uptick achieved prior month at 0.4%. Core CPI was also only 0.1% compared to 0.3% of May. On 30th July before FOMC decision, PCE (personal consumption expenditure) inflation data will be published and significant change there may sway FOMC decision. However broadly, inflation for now remains low and it is one of the primary reasons why FOMC is not worried about low rates. FOMC has started looking at the wage inflation also which currently is around 0.2% only.

B. Employment
US employment situation has improved with steady non-farm payroll signifying steady addition in number of employed people. Last reading was 288K. The same is reflected in unemployment rate being 6.10%. Another measure of employment is number of people claiming job-less benefit and a consistent decline in such numbers are healthy signs. Four week average of the number is 302K and it has been steadily declining.

C. Growth and Geo Politics
During the last 45 days, geo-political risks have certainly escalated with violence in Palestine, Iraq and Ukraine related tussle between west and Russia after the Malaysian Airlines crash. IMF reduced global growth forecast to 3.4% from 3.7%. US first quarter contraction was -2.9% and hence advance estimate to be released for Q2 on 30th

QuantArt Market Solutions Pvt Ltd.
Research Report – 30 2 th July 2014
July prior to FOMC is critical. Even if the number is stellar 3.00% +, US growth for first half of the year remains almost flat. The housing market showed signs moderation as per the last data as well and so did industrial output. Overall growth concerns have increased since last meeting and that would stop FOMC from making any hawkish comments immediately.

D. Bubble risk
The increasing debate in US policy circle is that of excesses in asset prices thanks to ultra loose monetary policy. Dow touched all time high, issuance of high yield (low grade) bonds or Junk bonds are at all time peak and carry currencies are doing too well. While Yellen mentioned that monetary policy is not the primary tool for containing bubbles, the fact remains that market takes cues from rates and accordingly plays on the risky assets. The domino effect is the scary part when asset prices correct sharply.

Expectation from FOMC statement
Overall we feel, FOMC will continue dovish stance through statement after this meeting citing growth and geo political concerns. However they will note the excesses on asset prices more clearly as risk.

Likely impact on INR
During the last 7 months USD 25 bn. has been invested in India by FIIs with USD 5 bn. in July alone. While India needed the comfort of investor’s confidence and consistent capital inflows, such a strong flow is not a healthy sign and instead a matter of concern. The FII- debt segment investments are nothing but currency carry-trade and to a large extent outcome of loose US rates. In other words the hot money when it goes out will create chaos in global markets including India. However two factors will protect INR from any currency crisis at this stage

1. RBI’s determination to not allow hot money to disrupt Indian financial markets whenever such outflows happen. They have accumulated significant reserves.

2. Significant Improvement in Indian political, macro expectations along with containment of CAD
Overall Assessment

 Either this FOMC or next FOMC is capable of disrupting financial markets though most likely this one will not disrupt markets.

 Considering that RBI is a consistent buyer of USD to mop up reserves and INR has remained steady at 60.00 levels during the period of such inflows, it is reasonable to expect next move of INR towards 61.00 when-ever outflow happens.

 Even though India is better prepared compared to peers to combat the eventual US monetary policy withdrawal, There will be some stress. In other words, INR may not depreciate by Rs 10 but can certainly depreciate by Rs 3-4 during US monetary policy withdrawal.

 However as noted above, chaos is unlikely to start after this FOMC though FOMC statements and comments have become the most important factor to decide the fate of INR going forward. At least more important than many Indian market participants consider it to be.
