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.

Are Wrinkles a Sign of a More Serious Health Issue?

Are Wrinkles a Sign of a More Serious Health Issue?
Concerned about wrinkles? There may be a reason to worry about lines and creases beyond how they affect your appearance. New research presented at the European Society of Cardiology's annual meeting shows a potential link between wrinkles and cardiovascular disease.

Specifically, the heart health researchers are concerned about the connection between deep forehead wrinkles and a higher risk of dying from a heart condition.

This new research may make identifying individuals living with cardiovascular disease, or CVD, a lot easier and less invasive.

Cosmetic Surgery Cost Savings Luring People to Unlicensed Providers

Cosmetic Surgery Cost Savings Luring People to Unlicensed Providers

Last month, headlines around the country announced the death of Delma Pineda, a California woman who had traveled to Miami for cosmetic surgery. Pineda,44, is the eighth person to die because of a cosmetic procedure performed by an unqualified or unlicensed provider in the city since May 2016.

Pineda opted to travel to Miami because of a cheaper price tag for the cosmetic procedures she wanted. She also hoped to reunite with a high school friend from their home country of El Salvador. Pineda's liposuction procedure was performed at CG Cosmetic Surgery in Miami on March 5.

By the end of the next day, she was dead.

Drinking Water Keeps Skin Looking Youthful

Drinking Water Keeps Skin Looking Youthful

Making sure you are drinking enough water every day contributes to good health. Water helps your body do everything from digesting the food you eat to eliminating waste and toxins. Water is also one of the best anti-aging treatments available and helps keep your skin looking healthy, youthful and bright.

What Happens to Your Skin If You Don't Drink Enough Water?
Water hydrates your skin cells and helps to give them their shape. So when you’re not drinking enough water, your skin can become dry, flaky and dull. Not drinking enough water also reduces the skin's ability to stretch and retract, which makes it more likely that you will develop wrinkles, fine lines and creases.
