In this day and age, youth is a highly valued trait. If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities are able to age so greacefully, it has a lot to do with cosmetic care. Although celebrities are invested in healthy diets and skin regimens, a big part of how they maintain their looks is through cosmetic surgery.
Botox is considered one of the most popular and potent cosmetic drugs. The drug’s main ingredient is a neurotoxin taken from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It smoothens out wrinkles and fine lines by paralyzing crease inducing muscles underneath.
The drug is usually injected around the eyes or in the forehead. It reduces signs of aging like frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Moreover, Botox can be applied beyond its cosmetic uses. It can also be used as treatment for other medical problems like muscular disorders, bladder disorders, excessive sweating, and migraines.
While the drug is extremely potent and versatile, it does come with some side-effects. These include neck weakness, double vision, malaise, wheezing, temporary paralysis, dysphagia, and mild pain. Although some of these things may sound alarming, Botox is a safe drug if administered under the proper circumstances. Typically, complications only occur when the drug is administered by unqualified practitioners.
The safety of your procedure depends on the quality of your care. To ensure your safety, it’s important to find a qualified cosmetic surgeon to oversee your procedure.
Dermal Fillers Adelaide
Like Botox, Dermal Fillers are used to remove fine lines and restore the appearance of youth. Often the two are used in conjunction with each other. Botox is used on the forehead and eye areas to reduce wrinkles while Dermal Fillers are used on the cheek and lip areas to add volume and definition.
A Dermal Filler is used to fill areas underneath the skin. Common uses include smoothening out bumpy skin, adding volume to cheek hollows, and increasing lip volume. They are categorized into two main types: naturally derived and synthetic. Naturally derived fillers are extracted from natural sources while synthetic fillers are lab-made. The former are considered safer but do not last as long (roughly six to eighteen months); the latter is more durable (one to two years). While there are some accounts of Dermal Fillers lasting over two years, any evidence has yet to be verified by scientific studies.
Dysport is the first real competitor in a market Botox dominates. Like Botox, Dysport is manufactured using a Butolinum type A neurotoxin. The two drugs are so similar that double blind clinical trials reported no visible difference both by doctors and patients.
Although Dysport and Botox share many similarities, they differ slighly. Some reports cite quicker onset and better spreading for Dysport and more longevity for Botox. Dysport also occurs in smaller molecules and requires a larger volume compared to Botox.
Because the two are so similar, cosmetic surgeons can recommend either drug depending on the patient’s needs and medical history.
Lip Enhancement Adelaide
Lip Enhancement or Lip Augmentation is used for increasing lip volume and plumpness. The procedure begins with the application of local anaesthetic to numb the desired area. After the anaesthetic takes effect, a hyaluronic acid solution or Lip Fillers Adelaide is inserted in the lips and/or surrounding areas.
Cheek Fillers Adelaide
Cheek Fillers are used to correct low cheekbones and cheek hollows. They are used to add volume and definition to the facial area.
The procedure involves the insertion of either silicone or fat (taken from the hips or buttocks) fillers in an incision within the cheek area. It takes roughly seven to ten days to recover from.
