Dangerous procedures for health and appearance: know what you need to know to avoid mistakes
Almost every woman, and recently a significant number of men, wishes to take care of their appearance. The winner is always the one who starts regular procedures and doesn't rush to a clinic or beauty salon for a "second youth" after significant age-related changes occur.
But how do you choose the right procedure for yourself, to do good rather than harm?
Indeed, visiting a cosmetologist for beauty should not have unpredictable consequences.
Today, you will learn which procedures you should never undergo, even if your beautician recommends them.
Meso Roller for the Face
This device was introduced to the general public during the early stages of cosmetology development. It is a small roller with needles on its surface, intended to apply various products and potentially replace classic mesotherapy.
However, over time, it became apparent that the effectiveness of the Meso Roller is quite low, even when compared to basic mesotherapy procedures.
If a beautician suggests this outdated method, it's advisable to run away from such a "specialist" as soon as possible.
It's important to note that the skin has limited regenerative capacity, and with regular Meso Roller use, the skin can become quite rough. Additionally, a significant number of bacteria can enter the body and cause inflammation.
Meso Roller should never be used by people with rosacea and rosacea, as it can exacerbate the condition.
The use of fillers based on non-biodegradable materials, often referred to as biogels, is strictly forbidden. In practice, this dangerous product remains in the body for life and doesn't dissolve. Over time, this foreign body can lead to inflammation or tissue necrosis. To resolve this issue, surgery is the only option.
The issue is that this filler does not dissolve and remains in the body for a lifetime. Over time, this foreign body can lead to inflammation or tissue necrosis. In such a case, the only way to get rid of the problem is through surgical intervention.
Mechanical Facial Cleansing
This procedure, while popular, is also risky. It involves manually squeezing blackheads, but what could be dangerous about it?
People with a medical background understand that in addition to sebum, pores also contain bacteria. During squeezing, part of the sebum is expelled, while the other part, along with bacteria, can penetrate deeper layers of the skin and potentially spread throughout the body via the bloodstream.
Lifting with Golden Threads
Despite their elegant name, in practice, these threads are not actually "golden" and carry significant risks.
They do not dissolve, requiring surgical removal, which involves making incisions on the facial skin for both installation and removal.
There have been instances where individuals with such threads lost weight, and instead of joy, they were shocked because, due to reduced fat tissue volume, the golden threads became visible.
If you are still inclined to have threads, it's recommended to consider an alternative: Cog meson threads with notches based on polydioxanone, a material used in surgery for suturing. These threads dissolve over time and do not necessitate surgical removal.
Strong Phenolic Peeling
One notable characteristic of many cosmetologists is a tendency to treat various conditions with chemical peels. Patients frequently request peels for issues like rosacea. However, it's important to emphasize the fallacy and potential harm of such an approach.
This doesn't negate the overall benefits of chemical peels, but it's strongly advisable to consult a specialist to determine if a peel is suitable for your specific case.
One procedure to avoid is a deep phenol peel due to its long and challenging recovery period. This peel removes the top skin layer down to the dermis, effectively leaving the patient with an open wound. Subsequently, you'll need weeks, if not longer, before appearing in public.
Another risk associated with this procedure is that, during the recovery period, the skin starts peeling, and many people attempt to hasten the process by manually removing the crusts, leading to inflammation and facial scarring.
If you are inclined to pursue this procedure, opt for superficial peels instead. While the results may be less dramatic, remember the fundamental rule of medicine: first, do no harm.
This procedure, designed to remove the top layer of the skin, including dead tissue, comes with a lengthy recovery period and relatively low effectiveness. Consequently, leading doctors have ceased using mechanical dermabrasion in their practice.
Moreover, the procedure has an efficient and much safer alternative—fractional laser resurfacing.
Fractional laser resurfacing is performed by a doctor using a fractional laser with strict adherence to the protocol. The doctor can customize the parameters when working with a fractional laser, including laser power, depth, and heating. Thus, the procedure is safe and yields superior results.
In conclusion, we've highlighted the most perilous procedures because when embarking on a self-care journey, you should be cognizant of the potential harm that can result from your investments in beauty and health.
Of course, the competence of the specialist performing the procedure matters significantly. Therefore, don't hesitate to request a beautician's diploma and refrain from entrusting your body to someone without appropriate medical education.
Wishing you health, beauty, and happiness!
