Stress, pollution and long working hours damage our skin. The sadder part is that we do not realize it until the skin has lost its shine and has become wrinkly and vulnerable to further deterioration. We can either keep on blaming the lifestyle and the quality of air we live in or do something about it. Well, that would be the long term plan. The short term strategy has to be something that can help you recover from the losses visible on the skin almost instantly, and be ready for the upcoming wedding season.
Right now, we are going to look at 2 advanced technologies that improve the way we look. Both of these techniques have been around for a while and people are using them around the world to look and feel better about themselves. One technique takes care of the quality of the skin while the other helps in cutting down fat. For optimum results, you may consider both; but first, educate yourself!
This technique takes care of the facial lines that can appear due to several reasons like ageing, exposure to sun and pollution. The face loses a significant amount of fat and as a result the facial muscles come closer and create lines on the face. Smile lines and crow’s feet are two examples of conditions arising due to loss of facial fat.
Dermal fillers help with these early signs of ageing. It is a facial rejuvenation process, more like a minimal surgery that involves injectable solution being injected into a soft tissue under the top layer of the skin. Thus giving the skin a fuller look and reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face.
What Can Be Achieved with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can help you with:
- Plumping thin lips
- Getting rid of scars and wrinkles
- Better shallow contours and reconstruction of deformed contours
Is it safe?
Skin fillers or Dermal fillers are actually safer than many surgical treatments. However, you might want to check out the side effects with your surgeon before you undergo the surgery. A few common side-effects include:
- Temporary redness and swelling
- Temporary bruises
- Bumps under the skin which fade away within a few days
This is a method of targeted fat reduction that is part natural and part man-made. CoolSculpting is based on a study that proves that when fat cells are exposed to cold, they trigger self-destruction mode. However, at the very same temperature, the skin cells and neuron cells remain in their natural state and stay unaffected. This means that while you lose fat, there is no effect on how your skin looks, feels or functions.
This has made CoolSculpting a cool concept and people are now considering it over undergoing liposuction. While we are yet to establish the safety levels and standards of CoolSculpting, the idea seems pretty safe given the fact that medical boards have given a green signal to CoolSculpting of abdomen and thighs.
CoolSculpting is not a surgery in exact terms. While it is carried out in labs under expert supervision but it does not involve knives and needles (which is kind of cool).
CoolSculpting can help you get rid of the thin layer of fat on your body. If you are looking for 6-pack-abs overnight, you should consider harder forms of weight loss like exercise and good eating habits. CoolSculpting is like a finishing touch that smoothens the top layer of the skin by removing fat.
Is it Safe?
Before you decide to undergo this technique of fat reduction, here are a few things you should know about it:
- CoolSculpting cannot be applied to the whole body.
- It does not ‘transform’ your body into a lean, sporty machine overnight.
- You should only visit experienced and trained doctors for this method.
- You can experience temporary nerve impairment due to exposure to cold.
Having said that, the side effects on nerves do not last for more than a few weeks, a month in the worst case.
