Your introduction to cosmetic procedures
Men are increasingly using various cosmetics procedures. Millions of men of different age groups use Botox, filler, lasers to enhance their looks. Each method has its pros and cons. Some procedures are good for getting rid of wrinkles, others for modifying the features or getting rid of unwanted scars.
This article looks at the three most common cosmetics procedures used by men. These procedures are highly effective and yet safe. In addition, each of the methods can be used for a particular reason.
It is quite a frequently used method. It is a procedure that uses injections of botulinum toxin. This toxin is naturally present in bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. This toxin can block nerve conduction and thus cause temporary paralysis.
Well, yes, the word paralysis may sound terrifying. However, controlled use of such a toxin can help relax specific muscles. Thus, it is commonly used to get rid of facial wrinkles and get smooth looks. However, it has other uses like helping reduce severe sweating, treating uncontrollable blinking, and may even help with certain spasms.
Experts would generally inject just a tiny about of toxin superficially at the selected points. Effect of Botox generally lasts for a few months, to about a year.
The procedure may cause some side effects like swelling and flu-like symptoms. However, it is quite a safe procedure in most cases.
Facial fillers are in high demand these days, and they can help modify facial features considerably. The procedure involves injecting hypoallergenic substances below the skin with the help of an injection. Thus, it may help increase the size of the chin, high light jaw bone, change the shape of lips, get more predominant eyebrows. In addition, fillers may also help get rid of certain facial lines.
Fillers are good in the way that they are temporary. Ultimately, they are degraded and absorbed by the body. Thus, they are pretty safe. Moreover, if someone does not like the new looks, they are reversible.
Lasers have found widespread use in medicine. They are used in cosmetic procedures, physiotherapy, and even treating severe conditions.
When it comes to using lasers for cosmetic reasons, they may help get rid of unwanted hair. Laser therapy is also suitable for facial redness, correcting small broken blood vessels. In addition, an external laser application may help get rid of telangiectasia.
Lasers also help improve the texture and complexion of the skin. Lasers are especially good for removing dark spots, acne scars, age spots, and even skin resurfacing.
Low-level laser therapy is also used in physiotherapy to relieve musculoskeletal pains. Again, it is a non-invasive way of managing these conditions.
High-intensity laser therapy is especially good for managing more severe pains. Thus, it may be suitable for managing sports injuries, chronic back pains, neck pain, and even herniated discs. A high-intensity laser can penetrate deeper into the tissues.
Botox/fillers/laser – using them is both a science and an art
Learning the science of using these methods does not pose many challenges for qualified experts. However, mastering the art of correctly using these methods requires lots of practice and experience.
A person may come to a doctor to increase a jawline with the help of fillers. However, a good expert can understand the exact needs of the client and make recommendations. Moreover, when the procedure is done with well-trained hands, it causes less inflammation and will result in perfect symmetrical results.
Further, it is vital to choose someone who understands the difference between treating men and women. Men have pretty different kinds of requirements. For example, they have different types of facial lines and wrinkles. Similarly, men may be more interested in highlighting their jawline than lips.
To conclude, Botox/fillers/laser methods are pretty safe, and thus they are commonly used. They may help get rid of many common problems, improve looks, and even help treat certain conditions. However, carrying out these procedures is an art that few experts have mastered.
