So needless to say, I’ve constantly been intrigued by cosmetic treatments. I’m up for trying all the most recent appeal technologies, but in all honesty, the idea of going under the needle– regardless of how non-invasive– left me a little uneasy. Until I came across Dr Tara Francis, AKA Enhance By Tara, on Instagram. The before-and-after pictures of ‘account rebalancing’– percentages of filler infused right into various locations of the face to develop an extra balanced, unified profile– seriously amazed me with the natural outcomes. So, I had to try it out and pop my tweakment cherry.
What is profile rebalancing?
“Profile rebalancing includes looking at the side profile of the face, as well as infusing particular hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers for each and every location of the face being treated– normally nose, lips as well as chin, however occasionally forehead– to develop a much more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing silhouette,” says Dr Tara.
What occurs during treatment?
After my preliminary consultation, Dr Tara rested me down as well as went over the procedure, pre-post therapy care, expected outcomes, as well as responded to any type of inquiries I had. She after that used numbing lotion to my lips, chin and the bridge of my nose before using a great needle to infuse small amounts of filler across the preferred areas. This only took around half an hour.
How long does it last?
The length of time profile rebalancing lasts is various for everyone. “The fillers will last varying amounts for different people, and also various parts of the face,” Dr Tara discusses. “It’s difficult to provide a concrete number, however 6-12 months generally is what we expect, aside from lips where I ‘d say speaking from experience, you can expect filler to last around 2-3 months if it’s your first time having them boosted.” Since hyaluronic acid happens normally in the body, the fillers are dissolved naturally in the body with time.
Exists any kind of downtime?
The injections can create moderate pain as well as tenderness promptly afterwards, along with swelling and bruising which can last up to two weeks, however normally there’s little to no downtime.
You should additionally stay clear of sunglasses, make-up, lip balm and alcohol for the first 24 hrs, Dr Tara claims, and attempt to rest on your back for the very first two evenings in instance the location is tender.
What’s the GLAMOUR verdict?
As an injectables newbie, I was rather worried prior to treatment. Yet Dr Tara made me really feel safe and also absolutely comfortable, assuring me that I could quit whenever throughout treatment.
