Science used to be quite cruel. Those who sought beauty had to pay the price through invasive plastic surgery or liposuction. Fortunately, Intense Pulsed Light treatments (IPL) and VelaShape now eliminate the need for these dangerous procedures.
In the past, men and women alike who wished to regain their youthful faces, with firm and unblemished skin, had to go under the knife in plastic surgery. Facelifts were the answer. there have been many botched facelifts, though. Sometimes, the results were unsatisfactory, not living up to promises. at other times, the patientsâ faces became quite grotesque. even worse, the use of general anesthesia in plastic surgery sometimes led to serious cardiac and pulmonary complications and even death. Another risk was deep vein thrombosis or the formation of blood clots in the vein which could also cause death.
Other possible outcomes of plastic surgery of the face were pain, nerve damage resulting in loss of control over facial muscles, facial asymmetry, numbness or loss of skin sensation, excessive bleeding, hematoma or the pooling of blood under the skin, infection, poor wound healing leading to skin necrosis and open sores, fat necrosis forming lumps under the skin, fluid accumulation and swelling, irregular skin contour, scarring, skin discoloration and hair loss.
Another scary procedure from the recent past is liposuction. the earliest type of liposuction, called the dry technique, was the most dangerous. It required general anesthesia, used a six millimeter cannula or stainless steel tube to siphon out fat and resulted in excessive blood loss and, at times, death. the subsequent tumescent technique, which was supposed to be an improvement, uses local anesthesia and a three millimeter cannula with holes punched in the skin for post-operative drainage. It is still quite invasive.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) is a laser treatment that achieves skin rejuvenation safely without plastic surgery. It uses flash lamps with full spectrum light that induces the skin to produce collagen, resulting in smoothened wrinkles and facial lines. at the same time, it diminishes pore size and eradicates skin discolorations like brown spots, freckles and blemishes.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) may be used not only on the face but on any body part, as well, such as the neck, dÃ©colletage, back, arms and hands. These body parts can be made smooth, wrinkle-free and blemish-free, as well.
But thatâs not all that IPL does. It can also zap and erase vascular lesions or spider veins on any part of the body, from the face to the legs. This is another area where plastic surgery used to be the solution, often resulting in even worse scarring. IPL makes treatment so easy and safe.
Thereâs even more. the exact same Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) is also the favorite laser hair removal treatment in Tampa. This laser treatment also happens to be a permanent hair removal treatment, with the full spectrum light safely killing off unwanted hair on any part of the body such as the face, ears, underarms, back, legs and even the bikini area.
VelaShape also uses light combined with heat, massage and suction in a non-invasive machine that painlessly and safely breaks down fat deposits and firms the skin, resulting in a slimmer shapelier silhouette with dramatically reduced cellulite. the fat that has been broken down is naturally ejected by the body without any need for liposuction. After all, liposuction, much like other touted cellulite treatments, has been proven to be ineffective against cellulite.
Indeed, Intense Pulsed Light Treatments (IPL) and VelaShape are technological wonders we should be thankful for.
