Salons that used to work on just hair and nails, nowadays offer all kinds of beauty treatments that may include cosmetic injections and invasive procedures. The prices though cheap, may produce catastrophic results. Whatever be the procedure, a patient should consider the 3 P's of a cosmetic procedure. These are namely, product, practitioner and place. Also make sure the product is FDA approved. Some of the FDA approved products include Botox in Los Angeles
, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra. Ask the practitioner what filler he/she uses, and if possible research for the product online. In case, the practitioner refuses to tell you about the filler, do not let that person treat you.
Go to a physician trained to perform cosmetic procedures or someone who may be a board-certified plastic surgeon, dermatologist or ENT. Don't let the procedure be performed in areas where you feel uncomfortable undergoing a procedure. Salons, malls or private homes are not the places to get such procedures done. These are medical procedures and should be performed in a medical office or medical facility. Such facilities usually keep a sanitary environment with resources at hand. The physician should also own the appropriate credentials. They may be a registered nurse, nurse practitioner
or physician's assistant with special training to administer cosmetic injections.
According to National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 10% of people world over suffer from a type of headache called migraines. People having migraines may have an aura (a group of symptoms that warn that the headache is about to occur). The symptoms may include speech and language problems, vision loss, sensation changes, like pins and needles, on the limbs and visual phenomena. During
migraine, the symptoms may last between 4 - 72 hours if the patient does not get treatment. The symptoms may include pain on one side of the head that is throbbing, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
Some individuals may have blurred vision, lightheadedness, and sensitivity to sounds, lights and smells. Migraines are more frequent in women than men, up to 3 times more. Such women may have concerns if they are at risk for cognitive decline. Though abnormalbrain activity is believed to be the cause, the exact mechanism is not known. Botox for migraines
has been recently been approved as a treatment for the
condition. The current guidelines may consider anyone suffering with 15 headaches per month, of which 8 are migraines to be suitable for the treatment. However, each patient may be assessed on an individual basis before they are recommended the procedure.
