You have spent a lot of money on your cosmetic operation and with discoloration or scarring, the last thing you want is to be alone.
Fortunately, to help the healing process and facilitate healthy skin regeneration, there are many preventive steps you can take.
Gregory Buford, MD, a Denver-based board-certified plastic surgeon, says to focus on a solid regimen including a collagen stimulator, a hydrator, an eye cream, a sunscreen, and a product based on retinol.
Every day, a solid skincare routine is necessary, but particularly when it comes to recovery.
As a first step, to ensure they are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, and fragrance-free, find the best skincare items that are made with gentle ingredients.
They should be gentle, moisturizing, and promote the healing process of the skin.
The supporting ingredients include vitamin A and E antioxidants, sodium hyaluronate, which provides superficial hydration, and anti-inflammatory camellia leaf extract.
The solution is also non-comedogenic, which ensures that the pores will not be blocked and is paraben-free and fragrance-free, which prevents discomfort.
For a fraction of what a classic facelift costs, injectable wrinkle fillers will give you a more youthful look.
In less than 30 minutes, most can fill in hollows, lines, and wrinkles with results that can last from 4 months to more than a year.
The best product, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, is injectable wrinkle fillers that fill the line, crease, or region with one of many different substances.
As a consequence, spots of trouble almost disappears.
It is also possible to use wrinkle fillers as “volumizers,” to plump and raise noses, chins, jawlines, and temples; to fill thin lips, and to plump sagging hands.
The treatment is simple and quick. But there is a downside to all wrinkle fillers, including the chance of an allergic reaction and the development of small bumps under the skin.
Those bumps can be permanent in some situations. And a bluish skin discoloration known as the Tyndall effect occurs occasionally.
The change of color can last for several months, however, therapies are available. Skin cells can die in very rare cases if the wrinkle fillers are not used properly.
A few documented cases of blindness, scarring from skin loss, and nerve paralysis have also been documented.
The wrinkle fillers that last longer are usually the ones that are most likely to cause side effects.
For each kind of wrinkle, not every wrinkle-filler is correct. The least threats and best outcomes come from properly using the correct one.
That’s why you can only get fillers injected with continuous, detailed training by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Cosmetic applications The main use of the best products Botox reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Botox injections are the most common cosmetic treatment nationally, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
About 7 million individuals had Botox procedures in 2016. Depending on the form of procedure, the results are reversible, lasting 3–12 months.
Injections are frequently required in the following areas of the face:
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows, called frown lines, glabellar lines, or elevations
- Wrinkles across the eyes referred to as the feet of crows,
- Horizontal creases in the forehead
- Lines at the corners of the “cobblestone” skin on the chin,
but only injections around the eyes and on the forehead have been approved by the FDA.
Your face will be cleansed and a very fine needle will be used to inject botulinum toxin into the muscles of your face.
Depending on the area being treated, you’ll need injections in various areas.
To help find the right place for the injections, you’ll be asked to move the muscles in your face.
It normally takes 10 minutes or so.
