A recent study performed across the US by a group of 23 dermatologists claim that minimally-invasive cosmetic interventions are practically risk-free. The specialists reached this conclusion after examining the results of over 20,000 procedures based on neurotoxins such as fillers and other laser treatments. Apart from minor complications like swelling, bruising, bumpiness or redness that occurs in less than 1% of the patients, there were no other major complications. According to the study, the complication rate for fillers was 0.52%, slightly higher than the rate for procedures with neurotoxins (Botox) and energy devices.
The leader of the study in questioning said that getting either one of the mentioned procedures won’t cause any severe pain, just mild discomfort. Minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures are considered safe because they don’t involve anesthesia. The patient doesn’t go under the knife and the recovering period usually doesn’t last longer than 2-3 days.
Minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures are risk-free
As opposite to cosmetic interventions that demand anesthesia, minimally-invasive procedures that involve Botox injections for example, are harmless. These are generally used to ward off wrinkles, restore the skin’s elasticity and shed a couple of years from the face. In some other circumstances, they have a purely aesthetic role – women who want to have bigger, more voluptuous lips can opt for Botox or Hyaluronic Acid injections.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the interventions are safe, especially now that technology is advanced and the techniques are so varied. According to specialists, patients who undergo Botox injections don’t experience side effects. The pain is non-existent and the patient can immediately return to his daily activities. People have known for years that there’s a huge difference between invasive and minimally-invasive cosmetic interventions; unfortunately, not many have had the courage to try them out.
Popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures
Botox, together with Dysport – another neurotoxin often used in cosmetic surgery, are extremely common substances used to defy the aging process in both men and women. Surgeons often choose to mix these with fillers, which are injectables that restore the fullness of a patient’s face. Dermal fillers are used in wrinkled, lined or sunken areas of the face; their goal is to redefine and reshape a patient’s facial structure and natural features. The end result is a harmonious, fresh and all-natural appearance.
Now that we’ve cleared that minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are almost painless, we should also mention that they’re risk-free as long as the experts performing them are professionals in the plastic surgery industry. After you’re made the decision of having cosmetic surgery, your next step should be to select a trustworthy, experienced plastic surgeon. Dermatologists and board-certified physicians familiar with medical skin care and facial anatomy are the finest. They have precision when injecting the substances and they know exactly how much serum the face needs to look all-natural and fresh. Complications usually emerge when patients don’t go to a specialist, and instead go to a day spa. If an intervention, non-invasive or minimally-invasive, is not supervised by an authorized specialist, the risks of complications are highly increased.
Chasing perfection with cosmetic surgery
In today’s world of skinny supermodels, all women want to look perfect regardless of their age; and since it’s difficult to look 20 when you’re actually 40, most women turn to plastic surgery. A little Botox here and there, a little liposuction and a remodeling massage will make you look like a million dollars. Sadly, the effect doesn’t last forever and you are compelled to repeat these processes every couple of months. Nonetheless, adult women who want to stay young for as long as possible would do anything for beauty.
How much does perfection cost? If we’re talking about minimally invasive procedures, the overall cost for an intervention won’t cost you more than $1,000; of course, it depends on the amount of Botox you want to inject in your face. Women in their 30s are just as obsessed as women in their 50s to stay young forever. Sadly, perfection doesn’t exist, and even if you correct one flaw, others will emerge until you won’t be able to handle them all. Some people are addicted to plastic surgery, and instead of looking better they abuse the procedures and end up looking worse. Find balance and discern when enough is enough!
