Safety aspects

Since the aim of any aesthetic treatment is to improve of what is already healthy and natural, the procedure itself should be safe and harmless. In clinical practice however, any treatment, even the most harmles cosmetic one, is a potential source of undesired effects.

Surgical treatment

Each surgical procedure engage some potential risks like skin infection, delay healing, scar formation etc. The effects of these procedures are usually permanent, so also the side-effects can stay "for ever". Among the experienced surgeons, the side-effects are usually very rare, but if they appear they can be difficult or even impossible to treat. The convalescence time after surgery is long, from days to many weeks.

Permanent fillers

We feel that permanent fillers have no place in aesthetic treatments and their employment for that purpose in the face is unethical.
A cosmetic effect achieved with a permanet filler may look nice and desireble today, but since the face alters continuously with age (but not the permanent filler), the face may look odd and artificial after some time.
It is also well known fact that permanent fillers can cause scar-like alteration in the skin, months or even years after the injection. That makes the result unpredictable.
Permanent fillers are more suitablefor for medical applicationa, such as tratment of disfiguration, permanent injuries, malformations etc.

Simple methods with good safety records

Botulinum toxin and hyaluron acid based fillers have become more and more popular in aesthetic procedures since they have shown to be both safe, easy to use and handy. The treatment, which is performed with or without local anesthesia, takes usually only a few minutes and does not alter the skin or their appearance permanently. The down-time caused by this procedure is counted in minutes or hrs rathern then days like in e.g. surgery.
The treatment. The treatment consist of dermal (into skin) or subdermal (below the skin) injections of small amount of either muscle relaxing drug (Botulinum toxin) or hyaluronic acid (Restylane®, Juvèderm®, others) with a very fine needle. Immediately after the procedure, the patient is ready to continue his/her daily activity. In some cases, particularly after the augmentation of lips, the edema can discomfort the patient for 1-2 days or more.

The advantages of treatment with non-permanent fillers and Botulinum toxin

One of the main advantages is the fact that the results last for a long time but not indefinitely. Our beauty canons are steadily evolving as well as our face is steadily changing. You can always choose to continue, to modify or to set stop for future treatments.
