Non-surgical cosmetic procedures have become increasingly popular over the last few years, offering people dramatic transformations without the need for surgery. We see the faces of our favourite celebrities often becoming increasingly preemed and perfect, which in turn fuels desires to look good and stay youthful. From vampire facials to lip fillers and so much more, the choices are endless. Yet, this doesn’t come without risks. Here we will look at how to ensure you are safe, as well as some information about some of the most popular treatments and some of the potential implications of them. Stay safe!
Research a Reputable Company
More and more non-medically trained individuals may perform these procedures in beauty clinics and spas, which can be extremely dangerous. Offering cheaper prices, under qualified people are creating a very dangerous environment. There is a lack of regulation currently, as legislation doesn’t classify fillers as a drug or medicine, meaning that there is less critical observation of its use. This means that trained medical professionals are not required to do the procedures, which has great implications. It is so important that if you are considering fillers or any other non-surgical procedure, that you visit a viable aesthetic clinic, with fully trained and qualified medical professionals. They understand the implications of such treatments and are likely to have a range of genuine reviews that you can rely on to gage whether it is the right place for you. The long term effects of these treatments being done incorrectly can be drastic, so take time to do your research and find a qualified medical professional who will not only give you great results, but also peace of mind.
Also known as botox, botulinum toxin injections are used to relax wrinkles and produce a more youthful look. Although this is an extremely effective procedure when done properly, it comes with implications. If done incorrectly, the use of botox can be life threatening, as it is the same toxin that causes food poisoning. Although safe when used in small doses, there are many risks if the procedure is done by someone who isn’t medically trained. Botox works by blocking signals from your nerves to your muscles which stops the targeted muscles from contracting, in turn reducing the appearance of wrinkles. You’re more likely to experience adverse effects if the injections aren’t prepared properly too, another reason to visit an experienced doctor or plastic surgeon.
Used not only for lips, dermal fillers can be used in many ways to reshape the face. There are common side effects of having dermal fillers, such as redness, swelling and pain. However, there are also more rare side effects such as infection, leaking, injury to blood vessels or even blindness which can happen when the filler is injected incorrectly into an artery. These are of course rare, but the possibilities are increased if not completed by a trained medical professional. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, as fillers can last for months or years. Trained professionals will be happy to answer any questions you have and will have a lot of knowledge about the products.
Laser Hair Removal
This is an extremely popular procedure, and most people have a safe and well tolerated experience. However, some people do experience side effects. There can be redness, crusting or the risk of infection. Unfortunately, these are risks that you are taking when having procedures. However, the risk can be reduced as specialist clinics offer more detailed aftercare, and have a far deeper knowledge of the possible medical implications.
