Truths and Myths about Cosmetic Treatments

Cosmetic Procedures in UtahIn our modern age, cosmetic dermatology is flourishing. Rich women, as well as successful career-oriented ones, go for it. An increase in cosmetic treatments in men has been noted as well.

But this doesn’t come with a hullaballoo about extreme beauty trade. How then could you tell which is true from myth?

Simple. Listen to what experts have to say about cosmetic procedures such as Botox and mini facelift.

1. Cosmetic dermatology is a procedure, not a product. No matter how some people try to sell it as a product in an attempt for a discounted price, it shouldn’t be treated as such. It takes knowledge and skills to do these properly.

As Dr. Andrew Markey of Lister Hospital said, “Merely having a fridge full of say, Botox, is not enough… by changing the face a teeny bit, you can alter the way it reflects light, and thereby completely alter the appearance.” This in itself tells a lot about the knowledge of professional cosmetic surgeon.

2. Patient consultation is key to a successful outcome. A visit to a cosmetic clinic such as allows for examination of your face and what needs to be done. A skilled doctor can tell you if certain areas in your face would benefit from fillers and additional treatments using lightening creams and mid-strength peels. Most importantly, it lets you know whether the doctor you are talking to is the one you’re going to entrust for your facelift.

3. Cosmetic procedures work. High profile cosmetic doctors have successful, motivated, career-driven clients. The fact that it works make it all the more attractive to these clients, who only want to make the most of what they have. Even minor procedures can do wonder especially in making skin look and feel squeaky-clean.

There is no one-fits-all solution. Every patient presents unique facial features and symptoms. A very successful outcome can be celebrated but it should be noted that one isolated technique is not enough. It helps if clients know this from the start so they can draw realistic expectations based on their symptoms and their surgeon’s capabilities.
