The Truth About Non-Surgical Procedures

The Truth About Non-Surgical ProceduresSome of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed today are known as non-invasive treatments. Transdermal injectable fillers such as Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm, and Restylane are currently the hottest products on the market to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and improve the shape of the lips. In addition to not requiring surgery, the advantages of these products include ultra fast results, virtually no down time, and they are relatively inexpensive. However, non-invasive office treatments have given rise to a disturbing trend. Because they do not feature traditional surgical risks such as general anesthesia or incisions, patients have been becoming complacent about where and how these procedures are done. Prospective patients should understand that ancillary procedures, such as transdermal filler injections or skin resurfacing, are still medical procedures and should only be performed under the supervision of a qualified plastic surgeon.

It is easy to see how people might take a non-surgical procedure more lightly than a traditional invasive treatment. Injectable fillers and laser that are commonly used for these types of treatments can still present risks and patients need to be thorough in their research. The initial discussion between the doctor and patient should cover all the bases of any surgery including:

A thorough medical history is essential to avoid any allergic reactions and helps identify any previous or existing medical conditions that may pose a risk. These opening discussions should also include the options of various treatments and any recovery instructions.

Appropriate Setting

Even non-invasive cosmetic procedures require sanitary medical environments and sterile instruments. While Botox parties are a trendy way to increase the social aspect and decrease the costs, group events may not be conducive to the best results. A board certified plastic surgeon will determine whether or not a party setting may be appropriate.

Emergency Plans

Despite the inherent safety of the procedures, non-surgical methods have occasionally resulted in unwanted results or consequences. The surgeon will most likely have an emergency plan in the unlikely event of complications.

Non-invasive cosmetic treatments can be a great way to look younger and feel more confident with quick results. But, patients should make sure that even these quick and easy fixes are performed by highly trained plastic surgeons in a location conducive to medical procedures. By following a few simple and common sense guidelines, your treatment is sure to be a success!
