If you take a look at procedures that are offered in the plastic surgery field nowadays you’ll see that the list will be almost never-ending. You will also be pleasantly surprised to find out that the vast majority of them are non- to minimally invasive. Thanks to numerous break-troughs in technology and science, physicians are simply able to perform miracles with a human body just with a couple of fancy devices and medicines. Safer, more effective and convenient to administer therapies became widely available for patients to the point that hardly anybody does any lifts or tucks anymore – who wants to go through all that mess with anesthesia and recovery hospital stay if you can get nearly as equal results by attending a number of quite fun and pleasant appointments. In most cases such substitution not only possible, but is highly recommended, because the procedures that were often performed in the past, for instance facelift, chin liposuction or eye bags treatment, were associated with post surgery pain, tissue inflammation and injury, unwanted visible results and other no less disagreeable consequences. Of course, far not every surgery ended up like that, however the success rate wasn’t all that reassuring after all. It’s quite another matter modern ways of sculpting the body, so let’s review some of the most popular ones.
Whether we like it or no, lots and lots of people suffer from excess fat. Either it’s just some extra packs around waist, hips, or thighs or full blown obesity, we are familiar with this national issue. And before we all will change how we eat, spend out free time and frankly produce food, as well, this problem will stick around for awhile. Hence, liposuction treatments remain in demand, though they definitely become more… user friendly. So called, laser-assisted liposuction, which by the way one of the leading methods to remove excess body fat, is nothing more than a massage. A physician applies a special device which channels laser beams into under-skin fat tissues, and the lasers break the stored fat cells, so the fat becomes much less problematic to be removed (usually either by drainage or through body natural ways). Some of the popular brand names of laser-assisted liposuction remedies include Smart Lipo, Zerona, Slim Lipo, Lipotherme and Cool Lipo. The technology behind them is similar, however not identical, so make sure you do some of your own research and consult an experienced practitioner to find what sort of laser fits your body better. Overall, it is a safe procedure with little of side-effects, however it is better to double-check it with your doctor. You should also discuss possible results to make sure you are completely aware of what to expect. Of course, severe obesity cases might not be treatable with laser liposuction – so far there hasn’t been any evidence of dramatic results or any significant weight reduction. The bottom line, if you have an opportunity to do laser therapy and incorporate some exercising and dieting along with it, then you should really include all three factors in your routine.
Another problem, next to the size, is age. Age is a big deal, too, just like with your size it takes some style and a bunch of tricks to conceal it. Wrinkles, age spots, dark spots, and sagging skin will speak up for you before you even open your mouth – just one look at your face or neck and you’ll be estimated plus/minus five years. One of the best ways to tackle all that is to remove the top skin layers, mostly composed of dead skin cells. Instead of lifting and tucking, plastic surgeons are widely offering various peels. Such peels are carried out by applying a special solution of chemicals onto the skin. The chemicals penetrate skin layers, dissolving the dead skin, which is then removed to uncover the deeper layers or younger looking and fresher skin. The more concentrated the solution is, the deeper it can penetrate the skin layers, so the surgeon can control how much of skin can be taken off. Some peels contain trichloroacetic acid, which is said to be quite effective for this purpose. Blue Peel and TCA Peel, for instance, are based on trichloroacetic acid, as well as Vi Peel, which aditionally contains retin-A, beta hydroxy acid, and vitamin C. There are some others – Jessner Peel, which includes salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol; the plant-based Green Peel; and Phenol Peel with phenol, as an active ingredient. Due to personal factors, certain peels might not be suitable for you, so make sure you talk to a plastic surgeon prior to these remedies. Such peels are not too pleasant – some people say it comes with tangling sensation, others claim it was quite painful. The majority, though, are quite happy with the results – the best nonsurgical way to make yourself look younger.
You also might be interested in a procedure called Exilis. It is a quite unique procedure, which combines skin tightening and fat reducing properties. Exilis is a device which uses alternate technology to deep heat and cool the treatment area which first of all facilitates collagen production, improving skin condition overall. At the same time it works on the fat stacked under the skin. So you can reshape your body and improve its cover, so to speak. This is one of the treatments that doesn’t cause any discomfort or pain. Some redness is observed around the treatment area and patients are recommended to drink plenty of water while doing such therapy. To achieve more or less visible results patients should attend about five sessions with two week breaks between them. The majority of folks enjoy the results up to six months after the Exilis treatments. And with all the positive sides of this device it is in fact affordable for general population. You do not have to be a movie star to enjoy it. As you can see, you have at least a couple of options to give yourself a wonderful makeover.
