For many years, aesthetic medicine has enabled us to improve our external appearance, and as you know, young appearance is something that not only women but also men strive for. With the help of appropriately selected treatments in the field of aesthetic medicine, you can not only get rid of the first signs of skin aging in the form of wrinkles, but also remove unsightly scars, stretch marks and cellulite. However, what treatments are the most popular in aesthetic medicine clinics and what effects can we expect?
Our skin begins to lose its firmness and elasticity over the years, which is why the first wrinkles appear on such areas of our face as the forehead, temples and nose. This problem is quite common, but you can fight it in a very effective way by opting for an aesthetic medicine procedure consisting of botox injection. But what is the mentioned botox? The botulinum toxin used during the procedure is a preparation (also known as botulism) that, when injected under the skin, blocks nerve impulses that lead to muscle contractions. After injecting this preparation, the wrinkles become shallower, but when deciding to perform this treatment, you should be aware that after a few months the problem has returned and the treatment will have to be repeated.
If for some reason it is not possible to perform the procedure with the use of botulinum toxin in order to remove wrinkles, it is worth considering platelet-rich plasma therapy, otherwise known as vampire facelift. This treatment is recommended primarily for people who are allergic to substances found in wrinkle-filling preparations. Platelet-rich plasma is a completely natural preparation that is obtained from our blood. Its composition includes cells and growth factors that stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen. During the procedure, the collected blood is placed in a special centrifuge, with the help of which the plasma is obtained, which is then placed under the skin. The effects of the treatment last for approx.6 months and during this time you do not need to perform any other aesthetic medicine treatments.
Another hit in aesthetic medicine are lifting threads, which are a great alternative to invasive face lifting. Thanks to the aforementioned threads, wrinkles can be removed very quickly, and sagging skin can be removed at the same time (this is the result of a loss of collagen and elastin from our skin). But what is the procedure itself? During its implementation, special threads are introduced under the skin to help reduce wrinkles, thus improving both the appearance and condition of the skin. The skin may be slightly red after the treatment, but the problem should disappear completely within a few hours.
Inappropriate diet and a sedentary lifestyle are the main factors responsible for the increase in adipose tissue in such areas of our body as thighs, buttocks, arms and abdomen. Of course, changing the lifestyle is the key to success, but the effect of a slim figure can be achieved a bit faster by opting for injection lipolysis. This procedure involves introducing a special preparation under the skin that helps to dissolve the fatty tissue in the above-mentioned parts of our body.
For many years, cold therapy has been used to fight various ailments, but it has also found some application in the fight for a beautiful appearance. Cryolipolysis is a fairly popular procedure that can be used to effectively deal with excess fatty tissue located, in particular, on the thighs, abdomen and sides. The procedure itself consists in cooling the adipose tissue with the help of a special device in order to break it down. During the procedure, a head is applied to a specific part of the body, which cools the adipose tissue to a certain temperature. The effects of the treatment are visible only after a few weeks and during this time you should remember to drink at least 2 liters of still mineral water every day,because only thanks to the hydration of the body, fat will be successively removed from it without harm to our health. Failure to follow the above recommendations may result in the lack of visible effects of the treatment.
Another very serious problem of many women are stretch marks and cellulite, which, however, can be dealt with by deciding on the so-called carboxytherapy. This treatment consists of a subcutaneous injection of carbon dioxide, which quickly helps to improve the appearance of our skin. As soon as the gas is introduced by the specialist, this gas begins to spread evenly in the tissues, thus leading to the expansion of blood vessels. As a result, the cells are oxygenated and nourished, and the hated orange peel and unsightly looking stretch marks stop us from sleeping over the eyelids.
