Dr. Andrew Miller, a plastic surgeon in New Jersey, warns patients about a few procedures that are risky to have performed at day spas.
Online PR News – 19-February-2013 –New Jersey- Even cosmetic procedures can carry risks that make them a better choice for a medi spa opposed to a day spa.
"Like surgical procedures, nonsurgical procedures require a unique skill set," says Dr. Andrew Miller," a plastic surgeon New Jersey. "Those that are more difficult to perform safely should be left in the hands of a doctor."
Although day spas are operated under licensed estheticians or in some cases, cosmetologists, the treatments they offer may be riskier than people think.
Here's a closer look at three procedures you shouldn't have at a day spa and why they belong in the hands of medical professionals.
Laser resurfacing- The wounding from lasers promotes natural rejuvenation that reduces sagging skin and fine lines, but also puts patients at risk for burns, scarring, skin discoloration and bacterial infections. Even with its excellent rejuvenating abilities, laser treatment isn't always enough to achieve the level of renewal patients desire.
"Many patients seek cosmetic procedures with unreasonable expectations of the results those procedures deliver," says Miller, a NJ breast augmentation specialist. "We can save them time and money by performing the appropriate procedure in the first place."
When it comes to dermal fillers there are two concerns- the substance used and the experience of the administrator.
"There have been cases of unwanted side-effects from filler procedures such as migration, infection and fibrous tissue formation," says Miller, a pro in liposuction Staten Island surgeries. "Unlicensed fillers and poor administration of the product often cause these unfortunate cases."
Botox used to erase furrows or wrinkles by weakening wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. While fewer wrinkles can provide facial rejuvenation, a misplaced injection may cause facial drooping similar to that of a stroke victim.
Unfortunately, many spas have adopted a medical atmosphere that lures patients in. Patients must do their homework - just because associates are wearing scrubs and lab coats it doesn't mean they are doctors or have medical training.
