Youth needles: what results to expect from beauty injections
The popularity of injection techniques is growing rapidly. The European guru of aesthetic medicine, Dr. Yusuf Yildirim, told us about how far progress has made and what results a bride can expect from beauty injections.
You are a recognized expert in the field of aesthetic medicine with extensive work experience and invaluable experience in your professional field. Tell us about your beauty philosophy.
Since childhood, I have admired the talent of the great Italian painter and sculptor of the Renaissance Michelangelo.
His work helped me understand the main thing: the beauty of a person is, first of all, the observance of proportions and symmetry. They are the alpha and omega of our perception. My medical knowledge only deepened this understanding, and I realized that the aesthetic optimization of appearance is what interests me the most. Philosophy of beauty? Not to reshape faces beyond recognition, but to make them as attractive as possible with their original natural data. Harmony in the details is paramount for me as a doctor of aesthetic medicine.
However, the right proportions are not everything when it comes to facial beauty. The overall condition of the skin and its texture are also of great importance.
The term “progressive aesthetic medicine” is on everyone’s lips. What can be called a hit of recent years and what is the future of this industry?
Aesthetic medicine is now really experiencing a boom in new technologies. But frankly, I don’t think there will be anything better or safer than Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers anytime soon. Injections with them are minimally invasive, eliminate many cosmetic imperfections, are relatively inexpensive, and their effect is predictable and long lasting.?
Nevertheless, I predict a tremendous success of lipofilling and face lifting with threads of various configurations. An absolute hit of our time – a comprehensive solution to existing problems and a combination of various cosmetological techniques to obtain the most expressive result. For example, the combination of contouring and botox gives a truly stunning effect.
Every bride dreams of going to the altar and being the most beautiful. What procedures should she go through before the wedding to look her best? And what advice can you give to the groom?
I recommend paying maximum attention to the condition of the lips, cheeks and cheekbones. You can restore youthful volume to them with the help of fillers based on hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. Light acid peels will quickly solve the problem of uneven skin texture. And of course, a real beauty sin – neglect the correction of the position of the eyebrows and corners of the lips. A couple of injections of botulinum toxin relieve tired eyes and vertical creases in the eyebrow area, which give a displeased look and add age. I advise grooms, first of all, to take care of the general condition of the skin, its color and relief, as well as to correct the nasolacrimal sulcus with fillers and inject a little Botox to relax the overactive muscles, so that on the day of the ceremony they look as relaxed as possible.
The myth that aesthetic medicine is the prerogative of girls in their early 30s is still alive. How to convince brides of the need for a pre-wedding visit to the clinic, regardless of age? What treatments do you put in the must-do section for every bride?
As I said, aesthetic medicine is not only about age and aging processes. This is primarily a story about proportions, skin condition and general harmony of the face. Therefore, I suggest every girl who is preparing to tie the knot of Hymen to start thinking about preparing the skin of her face two to three months before the planned date of marriage. Most of the brides who come to my reception require a so-called new face, but this does not mean that they want dramatic changes in their appearance, their goal is simply to exude as much radiance and freshness as possible. The return of the skin to the era of adolescence is achieved in many ways, such as plasma therapy, vamp lifting, IPL photorejuvenation, fractional laser thermolysis, radiofrequency lifting and biorevitalization. In addition, I additionally correct the bride’s face using contouring, bringing her proportions closer to the standards of the golden ratio, while maintaining individuality. I put the main emphasis on working with nasolabial folds, cheekbones and cheeks, giving them the desired shape and replenishing the lost volume of soft tissues. In addition, hyaluronic acid itself acts as a natural moisturizer for the skin, which has the best effect on its quality and appearance.
So what’s Dr. Yildirim’s signature recipe for youthfulness?
I’m afraid I won’t say anything new here. Don’t spend a lot of time in the sun without protection. But do not forget about vitamin D, which our body needs. The best way to get it without harming your health is to expose yourself to ultraviolet rays from 9 to 10 in the morning and from 17 to 18 in the evening. Introduce a course intake of zinc, selenium and vitamin? C into your practice. And to maintain the beauty of the skin and prevent aging – regular mesotherapy sessions. I am sure these beauty cocktails will only benefit you.
Returning to botox and fillers: how many years do they allow you to throw off without the obvious effect of a doctor’s intervention?
In fact, much depends on the initial condition of the skin and the body, but generally speaking, from two to ten years. Although I am deeply convinced that character and behavior play an important role in the perception of appearance. W
