Here in the UK, beauty treatments and tweakments continue to rise in popularity with rapid speed. According to latest figures, the dermal filler and Botox industry is worth £2.75 billion a year, accounting for nine out of ten cosmetic procedures.
Facial injectables promise all manner of enhancements, not just to the lips, but under the eyes, in the upper bridge, to the chin and on the forehead. As reported on Glamour Magazine’s website, you can improve these facial areas, and achieve ‘natural results’ and ‘more symmetrical, harmonised features’, courtesy of profile rebalancing.
Profile rebalancing explained
Profile rebalancing works by injecting hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to various sections of the face – including the nose, lips, cheeks, chin and forehead, as mentioned above. Numbing cream is applied first for pain relief before a fine needle is used to inject small amounts of filler.
The same as any treatment of this type, people will react differently. For a general rule of thumb, you can expect results to last for six to twelve months; not as long for the lips, say two to three months.
The side effects of profile rebalancing
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body which means the fillers should dissolve over time. Although a supposedly minimally intrusive treatment, you can still experience pain, tenderness and bruising – not only during application but for up to two weeks thereafter. The right post-treatment care is essential to avoid side effects and worsening pain levels.
If you’re keen to trial this new(ish) beauty trend, always do your research fully and seek out an expert therapist. You’ll pay more for the service but it’s worth it in the longer run.
While treatments such as profile rebalancing are safer alternatives to full-on plastic surgery, they do still carry risks. You should understand these upfront. Armed with the warts-and-all facts and figures, you may decide that you prefer to embrace your natural beauty instead, despite the potentially unwelcome introduction of fine lines and wrinkles, lessening volume and other minor imperfections.
