To get rid of wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and the second chin, to tighten the oval of the face, to make puffy lips and clear cheekbones, to look younger than your age - everything is possible thanks to the so-called “beauty injections.” In what cases are they used and what result can be achieved, tells surgeon, cosmetologist Olha Petruk.
What types of minimally invasive procedures and in which cases are they used?
Butulin therapy is carried out to correct facial wrinkles between the eyebrows and in the area of the eyebrow, crow's feet, sagging skin on the neck. Butulin therapy is effective in the treatment of hyperhidrosis - excessive sweating, which is a physiological feature of the body that a person can not control. Butulin therapy procedures are especially relevant in the summer. So, a week ago I carried out this procedure: I injected the drug into the armpit area. The next day there was already an effect: the man was sweating, but his armpits remained completely dry. The manufacturer of the drug claims that the effect will last up to a year.
Contour plastic is used both for the purpose of beauty achievement (creating the most attractive appearance: for correcting the shape and volume of the lips, expressiveness of the cheekbones), and anti-aging therapy - for correcting age-related changes (with an increase in eye orbits, dropping of the temporal fossa, changes in the shape of the face, drooping skin), the formation of a nasolacrimal groove, an encumbered face, when it has a tired look). Beauty injections (injections of peptides, hyaluronic acid, biorevitalization) are used to rejuvenate the skin, increase turgor, improve elasticity, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, reduce body fat. All these methods can be used to correct not only the face, but also the neck, décolleté and arms.
How many procedures are needed to achieve the desired effect?
If the problem is not in bad condition, for example, the nasolabial fold is not very focused, it can be solved in one procedure. However, it is impossible to do everything in one procedure.
If you are promised the result in one single procedure - do not believe it. You can conduct an intensive course consisting of several procedures, and only then maintain the effect by going through the procedures, once a year. But to maintain the effect, it is also important to follow the doctor’s recommendations and properly care for the skin. Caring for your appearance should be comprehensive. One says who will at least once make injections of beauty, then "hook" on them.
Is it true? It really is. But this dependence is not on the drug, but on its reflection in the mirror, on the pleasure of its appearance, on self-confidence.
The main thing is not to overdo it, observe measures. To make your face look well-groomed, natural, and not funny.
If we compare the cost of minimally invasive techniques and plastic surgery, what is more profitable?
Of course, the use of minimally invasive techniques is much cheaper and more affordable for plastic surgery. However, I noticed that our women, although wealthy, are not always sufficiently attentive to themselves.
Having been trained in Odessa at the Virtus Clinic of Plastic Surgery and Cosmetology, I noticed a tendency that women in Volyn region (Western Ukraine) pay less attention to caring for their appearance, unlike the women from Kiev, Odessa or Lviv. But at the same time, our women do not spare money on expensive fur coats and jewelry. But the time will come - and you will remove all this and hide in the cupboard.
What then will you have then?
Therefore, do not forget to love yourself and take care of yourself. At what age should minimally invasive procedures be started? It depends on the desire of the person and on the testimony, but not on age. For example, you can eliminate facial wrinkles on the forehead or in the eyebrows even at a very young age - 18 years old. In this case, the minimum dose of botulinum toxin is administered. Thus, you can even unlearn the wrinkle of your forehead, because the injected drug relaxes the muscles, a person can not frown and gradually gets rid of this bad habit. But it should be borne in mind that preventing age-related changes is much easier than fighting them later.
