If you’re considering a minimally invasive procedure, you may get cold feet when you hear a lot of the tall tales told about the procedures. Having said that, a lot of information about aesthetic procedures is wrong. Here are some common aesthetic procedure myths:
Botox is Unsafe
When botox is performed by an experienced doctor, it is very safe. However, there are always risks to any procedure, and botox is no exception. Some possible signs and side effects of botox are vision problems, muscle weakness all over the body, and trouble breathing, amongst others.
As much as people like to think that the results of any aesthetic procedure will last forever, they do not. Aesthetic procedures can help you turn back the hands of time, but these hands of time need to be turned back every so often.
Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Aesthetic Procedures, Same Thing
The distinction between these categories is confusing. Plastic surgery can be viewed as the umbrella term, because cosmetic surgery is a part of plastic surgery. However, plastic surgery also involves reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery only focuses on beauty. Aesthetic procedures are different than both plastic and cosmetic, because while they focus on beauty, they are minimally invasive procedures. This means that no incision into the skin is required, while surgery involves making an incision.
CoolSculpting is a Cure All
CoolSculpting is designed for patients that are close to their ideal weight; the procedure wasn’t created as a way to treat obesity. On average, CoolSculpting can reduce body fat up to 22%. Ideally, patients that are receiving CoolSculpting treatment should also live a healthy lifestyle to see optimal results.
