Honesty Is the Best Policy

Honesty Is the Best Policy

If you're thinking of undergoing a cosmetic procedure, you have probably already thought about what procedure you want, who is going to do it and how you hope to look afterward. But, there are several other considerations you must make so you can be sure you are both physically and mentally healthy for your procedure. Find out how to get ready with these tips from Innovations Medical.

Be Honest About Allergies. There is no benefit in holding back information about your health history, and this includes being upfront about your allergies. Let your physician know if you have had an adverse reaction to acrylates, silicones, rubber and latex. These ingredients may be found in dressings, adhesives and other components used in your procedure.

Keep Your BMI in Check. Some cosmetic procedures require you to be a healthy weight and BMI (body mass index). A good target BMI is 30 or less. Why is a lower BMI and healthy weight important? Being overweight can interfere with anesthesia and may cause complications for recovery. Note: Do not start a crash diet to get to your ideal weight before a cosmetic procedure. Instead, work to lose weight at a healthy pace and stabilize your weight loss at least six months before your procedure.

Cryolipo What?

Cryolipo What?

It seems like there is always some "new" thing hitting the market of cosmetic treatments - a new injectable here, a new surgery there and an endless supply of new lotions or potions making promises to erase the signs of aging overnight. While some of these procedures, treatments and products do what they claim, some leave patients with other, unintended effects, too.

One of those procedures is "fat freezing," also known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that causes fat cells to die by freezing them through your skin. Sounds great, right? Well, before you schedule that appointment, we just want to mention a few things. First, although the fat cells are destroyed, the fat itself moves to a different part of your body. Also, recent studies suggest that there could be a risk associated with the treatment - a complication known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) in which areas of hardened localized fat develop. Although the condition is treatable, it can be frustrating and leave individuals with unsightly or uneven final results.

What Is the Alternative?

Fight Aging Overnight

Fight Aging Overnight
If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: Getting enough sleep is the key to great skin. Well, maybe we haven't mentioned it a thousand times, but we're saying it now. Not getting a full night's sleep can wreak serious havoc on your skin and leave you at risk of wrinkles. Find out how you can fight the aging process, even in your sleep, with these tips from Innovations Medical.

How Can Sleeping Cause Wrinkles?
Sleeping, per se, does not cause wrinkles. Instead, it is how you sleep that leaves you at risk of lines and creases. When you sleep on your side or stomach, there is a force applied to your face. This force is also applied to the collagen in your skin and will eventually cause the breakdown of this important protein. When collagen breaks down, you're at risk of developing wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.

Study: Video Sites May Not Be the Best Place to Get Information About Cosmetic Procedures

Study: Video Sites May Not Be the Best Place to Get Information About Cosmetic Procedures

Results of a new study from Rutgers University reveal that individuals doling out cosmetic surgery information on YouTube are frequently not qualified to advise on procedures.

During the study, the Rutgers researchers viewed the top 240 videos that contained keywords such as "facial fillers," "dermal fillers," "face-lift" and "eyelid surgery."

These 240 videos had a combined 160 million views.
