Beauty, amplified – Cosmetic Beauty Talk with Dr. Sharma at Sharma Skin and Hair Surgery Clinic

Thursday, March 14, 2019

I am strong believer that feeling beautiful and confident is different for each of us – and sometimes going the extra mile to achieve that confidence you need a little help. If you've been following along on Instagram over the course of the last few weeks, you will have noticed a couple stories and post where I had about my first ever experience with cosmetic medicine. I was surprised how much interest that post sparked and how many questions everyone, including myself, had. I had an opportunity to meet with Dr. Anil Sharma to get some of the questions answered and to educate all of us.

Dr. Anil Sharma is an accomplished physician who previously practiced in the bustling heart of London, England. He still maintains his practice there and us folks in #YEG are now fortunate enough that he has a clinic here.
The Sharma Clinic was founded by Dr. Sharma and offers variety of services – from fillers, Botox, and a range of skincare treatments, just to name a few.
 So I asked what you guys wanted to know and here is the most common questions and answers. Hopefully this post and my conversation with the Dr. Sharma helps to alleviate some of the stigma that surrounds this industry. If feeling beautiful and confident means dealing with some of our insecurities, amplified with cosmetic medicine, then it’s worth the conversation with a trusted MD.
Before meeting with Dr. Sharma I was a little anxious because I didn’t know what to expect but after meeting with him I have a new outlook on cosmetic enhancements. They answered all my questions, but more than that, clarified that what I think I needed and what I was hoping to achieve are the same thing. (for example – my first instinct was “ I NEED BOTOX” when in reality after looking at my before photos I didn’t actually need it – it was more of a want. More on that on Friday!).
How safe is Botox?
Botox has been used for over 5 decades for a wide array of medical procedures, including children. It's an extremely safe procedure and it's even used for routine medical conditions.

How safe are fillers?
 Fillers are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, an entirely natural substance, which exists in every person's skin. So in short, very safe!

How long do lip fillers last?
Results vary from individual to individual, generally 6-18 months.

What side effect does Botox have?
Rarely some pinpoint bruising and redness, but most patients experience no problems.

What side effect do lip fillers have?
Generally, you will see some lip swelling that can last 2-3 days but the results are well worth it!

At what age should you consider Botox?
Botox is preventative for premature wrinkles. We are seeing patients starting at 23 years old.

Who is a good candidate for non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Those wanting corrections for side profiles are great candidates.

How much do fillers cost?
 The question should be how much does a skilled pair of hands cost? We charge $650 per syringes which includes our time.

How long is recovery from non-surgical rhinoplasty?
Most patients experience no downtime.

Are there different types of fillers?
Good question! Yes, and according to the area, the particle size of the filler should be matched to the anatomical site.

What do you guys think? Would you consider cosmetic enhancements?
