BSCKII Nguyen Quang Minh – Deputy Head of the Department of Research and Application of Stem Cell Technology, National Hospital of Dermatology, is the recipient of patients.
She said that she had previously gone to a reputable cosmetic facility to perform skin rejuvenation with multi-layered regenerative therapy. This facility advertises skin rejuvenation that will only use a treadmill, not an injection into the skin.
“In fact, the staff of this facility injected some places on my face. When I asked, they said it was just an anesthetic while running the machine,” the female patient told Dr. Minh.
Examination, ultrasound to check the subcutaneous tissues, the doctor found that the patient had many subcutaneous masses like fillers. “It is very difficult to treat the inflammation as well as determine the type of substance that was injected into this patient’s face,” said Dr. Minh.
According to the doctor, this facility uses filler injections to fill the face, rejuvenate, but “misleads” customers to use other multi-layered regenerative therapies.
Doctor Minh affirmed that there is no beauty therapy called “multi-layered regeneration”. Most of them are too much advertising to attract customers.
The Central Hospital of Dermatology regularly receives and overcomes consequences for complications after using services at unqualified spa and cosmetic facilities.
“We are sure that there is no method according to the description that just injects one injection into a certain part of the face that can completely molt. Nor is there a machine-only therapy that can make women feel good. 5 – 10 years younger,” noted doctor Minh.
The leader of the National Hospital of Dermatology warned that there are two main groups that are easily “trapped” by beauty, including young people starting to reach the age of beauty, adolescence (under 18 years old) and people from 30-40 years old.
For young people, they learn and buy products on their own online, regardless of the origin, find ways to use them according to online instructions, regardless of their own skin properties, indications or contraindications. Specify which component. Many people also beautify according to idols, according to “review” of many products on tiktok, facebook such as applying AHA, BHA … without understanding the mechanism, effect, how to use it most effectively.
This institute used to receive a 16-year-old patient who was blind because of beautifying the place of an acquaintance. For people in their 30s and 40s, they find themselves starting to show signs of skin aging, so they rush to find ways to stay young.
Meanwhile, according to doctors and customers, when they listen to advertisements and referrals a lot without being consulted or explained about the prognosis of the risk of possible complications, the information received will be misleading and incomplete. On the part of cosmetic facilities, there are places that do not even recognize the signs of accidents, so they do not properly assess the risk and handle it in the wrong way. This causes patients to miss the golden time for emergency care, leaving many serious sequelae, even death.
