While plastic surgery and other related operations have long been popular options, there are two dermatology procedures about which you may not have been previously aware.
One such practice, facial laser resurfacing, is used to enhance the look and integrity of the skin. This can be achieved one of two ways. A non wounding, or non ablative laser, is used to both tighten skin and promote the growth of collagen. A wounding, or ablative laser, on the other hand, is utilized when you want to get rid of very thin skin layers. This second procedure is the preferable method of laser resurfacing for acne scars and other blemishes.
These two methods have grown increasingly popular in recent years, with occurrences of laser resurfacing having grown by 154% from the year 2000 until 2009. In America, 88% of these procedures are chosen by women.
The other practice, known as a vampire facelift procedure, in which the individual’s blood is combined with a wrinkle filling agent known as Sephyl, is considered a “minimally invasive” treatment. The vampire facelift results in the reduction of wrinkles. A patient is typically charged $1,800 for a vampire facelift in America.
Before getting either of these procedures done, it may be wise to consult with your primary physician for general advice. He or she may be able to inform you of any possible health risks as they pertain to your specific medical history. Even when getting simple procedures like these done, it is important to be deliberate in your process and not rush into it without being familiar with how the operation works.
