What are Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers (also known as dermal fillers) are products that are injected under the skin to add volume to different areas of the face such as over the cheekbones, around the mouth, around the eyes or to plump up the lips. The results are subtle and long lasting. Dr Buckley uses the Juvéderm® range of hyaluronic acid fillers which is the best-selling hyaluronic acid filler in the United States. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin. Fillers help the skin retain moisture to soften lines and add volume.

Food Allergy Testing

Dr David Buckley

Last week we talked about “bogus food allergy testing”. In this article I will talk about scientifically validated allergy tests available in Ireland today.

True food allergies (e.g. to milk, wheat, gluten, nuts, eggs, etc.) are quite rare. While there is not one accurate validated test available today, there are a number of tests that, when combined with a thorough history and detailed examination by a doctor experienced in allergy testing, can accurately pick up food allergies in most cases. It is important to realise that many common symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, fatigue, joint pains and depression are not caused by food allergies in the vast majority cases. They are more likely to be linked with a poor diet high in sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed or junk food or may be linked with stress.

Bogus Allergy Tests

Bogus Allergy Tests Can Cause Real Harm

Dr David Buckley

It seems to be fashionable to be allergic to some foods these days. All kinds of vague symptoms are commonly attributed to food allergies such as fatigue, bloating, cramps, migraine, rashes and coughs. However, most people with these symptoms probably don’t have true food allergies. Some may have food intolerance while others may be getting their symptoms from stress or a poor diet with too much sugar, caffeine, yeast, processed foods, fast foods or alcohol. True food allergies are quite rare. Food intolerance is much more common. It is usually as a result of the gut not being able to process certain foods such as lactose in milk (common in children), caffeine, cheese or red wine. It can only be picked up by excluding suspected food for a few weeks and then reintroducing it to see whether the symptoms are relieved and relapse if the food is reintroduced.

Skin Cancer

By Dr David Buckley

Most people love a sunny day. It can improve our mood and helps with vitamin D production. However, with all the sunshine we have been having recently, it should make us more aware of the dangers of the sun. While sunburn may be painful, it can also put us at risk of skin cancer later in life. More prolonged but less intense ultraviolet light (UVL) exposure from the sun or sunbeds on the skin may lead to a tan. However, if the skin is constantly being exposed to the sun or UVL it can lead to premature aging of the skin (causing wrinkles) and to skin cancer.

What is Botox?

Botox© is an FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, wrinkle lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes in women and men. Botox© helps to make you look younger, less cross and less stressed. When Botox© is given properly by an experienced doctor it can make you look great without been obvious. Botox© temporarily reduces muscle activity in these areas and stops the repeated muscle contractions which result in frowning and squinting, which can cause wrinkles over years.
