This weekend I was lucky enough to attend ISPAN’s (International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses) symposium in Chicago. The truth is that I have to thank some advisors for pushing me, because I had preferred to stay home within my comfort zone and take the weekend off. However, I’m grateful I went and was able to listen to what others had to share.
Many topics were discussed, but the one I will write about today is about fillers and neuromodulators. Personally, I don’t apply any of them to my skin. I take care of my skin holistically and with other less invasive treatments, hoping that there will not be a point in my life, in which I may want to apply fillers and neuromodulators (e.g., botox). I know I may change my mind, because these can provide unique and beautiful results.
However, I am afraid of a couple of things: 1) will the shape of my face change? While some professionals have magical hands, I have seen other cases in which you look like a different person, albeit still beautiful; yet being a lover of natural looks, and a firm believer that you can naturally look fabulous at forty and beyond, that would be hard on me. But most importantly, I am afraid of complications. I know many of these can be corrected and prevented, but things happen…and scary things can happen… From tissue necrosis, to nodules, infections, nerve damage, damage to other parts of the body distant from the treatment site, herpes breakouts, and more. Some of these happen many months after treatment. In other words, the long term impact is not fully known at the time of treatment. And yes, there can be complications with everything we do, but for now, I prefer less invasive procedures.
