Body Positivity and the Aesthetic Industry (Español)

Body Positivity and the Aesthetic Industry (Español)

Últimamente se oye hablar mucho del movimiento “body positive” y de la necesidad de amar nuestros cuerpos. Desafortunadamente, parece que estos conceptos se presentan como contrapuestos a los tratamientos de belleza y la cirugía estética. Incontable artículos invitan a las mujeres a amar lo que ven en el espejo, pero estos textos esconden un mensaje: “Si no te gusta lo que ves y quieres hacer algo al respecto, pierdes tu autenticidad”. El estigma que rodea a este tipo de tratamientos puede hacer que algunas mujeres se lo piensen dos veces antes de recurrir a ellos, y no debería ser así. “Quererse a una misma” significa hacer lo que te apetece con tu propio cuerpo, aunque vaya en contra de las convenciones sociales. Puedes tener confianza en ti misma, y a la vez desear hacerte algún tratamiento estético como teñirte el pelo o realizarte un aumento de labios: ambos tratamientos tienen como objetivo realzar tu belleza natural. En Visage Aesthetics nos encantan los tratamientos de belleza y la cirugía estética, y creemos que tienen el magnífico poder de ayudar a la gente a verse con otros ojos. Solo te pedimos que, si recurres a ellos, lo hagas por las razones adecuadas: por ti, y por nadie más. Quiero terminar este post invitándote a que te olvides del “qué dirán”. No te has hecho el tratamiento o la cirugía estética para buscar su aprobación, sino porque te apetecía. Tú decides qué hacer con tu cuerpo. ¡Quiérete a ti misma, y no te avergüences de tus...

Hyaluronidase & Vascular Occlusion Update 2019

In April 2014 I wrote a blog post called ‘Holy Shit, It’s Filler Blindness!’. I felt at the time that the post was needed as there was a lot of fear in the industry about the newly infamous filler-related ischamia of the skin or retina, potentially resulting in the need for a skin graft or even worse, sudden, irreversible blindness. My post was based upon the ‘Expert Consensus…’ (see below) and we went on to use their proposed protocol, with some adaptation as the basis of our hyaluronidase / hyalase assessment station on our training courses. The blog post still gets more hits than anything else on our websites, BUT, ‘expert advice’ has changed regarding the management of dermal filler-related skin ischaemia and blindness since then, and also, we now have a peer-reviewed and evidence-based document. Here’s a quick update (skin ischaemia > blindness). QUICK LINKS: CONSENT FORM for hyaluronidase AFTERCARE SHEET for hyaluronidase February 2014 Aesthetics Complications Expert (ACE) Group. The Use of Hyaluronidase in Aesthetic Practice Summary: Use 1.5-30 units hyalase for skin ischaemia, depending on the size of the effected area.

Body positvity and the Aesthetic Industry

Body positvity and the Aesthetic Industry

Usually the words ‘body positivity’ and ‘self-love’ don’t come into the same conversation when discussing cosmetic surgery or aesthetic treatments. There are many articles telling women to love what they see in the mirror, but that comes with judgement, ‘if you don’t love what you see, and if you do something about that, you’re not authentic’. This stigma revolving around plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments usually holds women back from doing what they want with their own bodies. This should not be the case, loving yourself means doing want you want even if it means going against convention. You can still be confident in your own skin and undergo aesthetic treatments and explore cosmetic options, whether that be colouring your hair or getting lip injections – both choices stem from wanting to enhance your natural features. At Visage Aesthetics we believe getting cosmetic surgeries and aesthetic treatments are wonderful, they can be extremely powerful and transformative in helping people view themselves in a better light. Just make sure you are doing it for the right reasons, and you are only doing it for you. I will finish this blog post with saying, don’t worry about other’s opinions, as your cosmetic surgery or aesthetic treatment was not done to receive others validation. What you choose to do with your body is completely your choice and you should love yourself as well as your...
