Popular Cosmetic Service Terms
From plastic surgery, breast augmentations, and facelifts, to collagen injections and dental veneers, the cosmetic service industry serves a large variety of needs. In order to have a better understanding of the cosmetic service industry, become familiar with several terms when researching cosmetic procedures.
Rhinoplasty - Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose, by resolving nasal trauma, congenital defect, respiratory impediment, and a failed primary rhinoplasty.
Collagen Injection - The practice of injecting collagen into a part of the face or body to make it larger, most often performed on the lips. The effects are long lasting but not permanent.
Breast Augmentation - For breast reconstruction, augmentation and aesthetic enhancement of the size, form, and feel of a woman’s breasts, there are two types of breast implants available. Saline implants are filled with sterile saline solution. Silicone implants are filled with viscous silicone gel.
Dermal Filler - A dermal filler is a less invasive option than that of a facelift. Dermal fillers are injected into predetermined sites, usually on the face, in order to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Though long lasting, dermal fillers are temporary and will require maintenance visits to the plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or aesthetician.
Aesthetician - Aestheticians specialize in beautifying the skin. They perform cosmetic skin treatments including hair removal, massages, body wraps, and skin care procedures like acne treatments. Aestheticians also offer eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions and permanent makeup. Aestheticians also often specialize in machine treatments such as non surgical face lifts and electric muscle stimulation.
Cosmetic services can include many different types of injections and surgical options that alter a person’s appearance. Some of the most commonly used cosmetic services include breast implants, permanent makeup, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), and dental whitening.
Depending on the types of services that you would like, you might be able to get a variety of options from the same doctor. For instance, most doctors that offer breast implants can also perform a nose surgery. If, however, you want dental surgery, you might have to visit a dentist that has been specially trained to perform these services. Similarly, if you have a lot of acne on your face, then you might need to see a dermatologist that specializes in acne treatments.
Men and women usually get cosmetic services because they have an ideal of beauty that they would like to match. This often means getting collagen injections in the lips and wrinkles, eyelid lifts, and thigh surgery. Some people also choose to have makeup permanently tattooed onto their faces. This makes it possible for them to match their ideal of beauty without spending a lot of time on their makeup.
Those that want minor cosmetic services such as hair straightening and skin moisturizing can often visit beauty shops that specialize in making men and women look their best.
The costs of cosmetic surgeries, acne treatments, and injections can vary significantly, as does the recovery time for these procedures. You can use an internet search engine to locate the cosmetic service offices in your area. They should be able to help you choose options that are appropriate for you.
