WHO DECIDES WHAT IS FASHIONABLE?

The world of fashion has changed and it’s no longer the top design houses in London, Paris, Milan or New York people turn to when they want to know what they should be wearing this season.

Fashion forecasters and bloggers can have more influence, but who actually decides what will be fashionable this year? Also, how influential are fashions and trends in areas other than the clothes industry?


INFLUENCERS AND FORECASTERS HELPING FASHION HOUSES

When top fashion houses release a new collection, they have the power of online influencers and forecasters to help them get it into the public domain. Many of the influencers are celebrities who can have many millions of followers on social media. The forecasters follow trends and try to fathom what will be fashionable next year and beyond. The fashion houses use the services of both to try and be the one who comes out on top in the fashion world.

FASHION IN GAMING

Clothes are not the only area where things go in and out of fashion. Online slots can be fashionable, as can adventure games and the platforms they are played on. For example, Mermaid’s Diamond and Pink Elephants were chosen by SlotsOnlineCanada as two of the top 5 most fashionable slots – both in terms of appeal and of graphics. In the area of consoles, things are similar. One month the Xbox will outsell the PlayStation, and the next it can be the other way round. The digital devices that online casinos are played on can be just the same, although overall it seems that iPhones are leading the fashion in smartphones at the moment.

HOUSEHOLD FASHIONS

Household fashions change all the time. You will know from visiting other people’s houses how different furniture, curtains, and accessories can be. This is not just because of personal taste but because the retailers change what they are selling as the fashions in household goods change.

Homes used to be very cluttered, with walls full of pictures and every little bit of floor space used. These days the fashion is to have a cleaner and sharper feel to your rooms, with much less in them. Even with the items of furniture you do buy, fashions alter all the time.

FASHIONS AND TECHNOLOGY

We all have some sort of technology, whether in our homes or at work. There are our computers and other digital devices, just for starters, and then things like TVs and other electrical items. Some of them may be old technology by today’s standards, but they are technology non-the less. New innovations are being produced by developers every day, and as soon as something proves to be very useful or relaxing for users, it does not take long for it to become fashionable. The problem with technology is that it’s evolving at such a pace that often products are at the front of the field for a very short time as something new quickly surpasses them.

CHANGING MOODS

Fashions in all parts of our lives have altered beyond what we could have imagined just a few years ago. Look at music, films, or jewelry from a few years ago and it will all seem very dated. Although some things occasionally come back into fashion, most things seem to be changing as often as our moods. That could be because marketers and producers watch out for the mood of the public, and pitch their sales promotions to suit them.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LASER LIPOSUCTION

Categories:Other Brands

Laser liposuction, which is commonly referred to as laser Lipo, is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to remove excess fat, helping to firm and smooth the skin. The process is done using the laser that emits transcutaneous light. This light penetrates the skin and destroys the underlying fat, resulting in a smoother, firmer appearance.


HOW DOES LASER LIPOSUCTION DIFFER FROM TRADITIONAL LIPOSUCTION?

Laser lipo is far less invasive than traditional liposuction. With a standard liposuction procedure, a thin tube known as a cannula is physically inserted into the skin. This can cause a lot of trauma to the surrounding tissue.

Laser lipo, on the other hand, causes much less bruising and bleeding. It also is far easier to recover from since it causes so much less damage to the body. The surrounding tissue doesn’t become nearly as inflamed, making it much less painful during the recovery process.

Interestingly, laser lipolysis causes the skin to contract immediately. This makes it perfect for use in areas where traditional liposuction is not nearly as effective.

It also can be used on areas that are commonly treated with traditional liposuction including the stomach, sides, buttocks, and other areas of the body. Most patients who undergo the procedure are extremely satisfied with the results. Doctors who offer the procedure also find that it works extremely well for their patients.

WILL LASER LIPO WORK ON STRETCH-MARKED SKIN?

Laser lipolysis is perfect for correcting volume-related problems in skin that has been stretched too far. For instance, patients often have this type of skin on their inner thighs or on their abdominal area after pregnancy. Many doctors are also optimistic about the use of this procedure in patients who are older. With age, the skin becomes thinner and more flaccid. The tightening of the skin that occurs with this treatment can help counteract this effect.

WHAT TYPE OF MEDICATION IS USED DURING THE PROCEDURE?

In most cases, patients are not sedated for laser lipo procedures. Instead, the doctor relies on a local anesthetic. Of course, that may vary, depending on the area that is being treated and the preferences of the doctor. Typically, people are feeling good enough to get back to their regular lives within about 24 hours of the procedure. They may still have soreness and stiffness for an additional few days, however. In many cases, patients are asked to wear a compression garment for up to a week after treatment.

HOW DOES THE LASER LIPO PROCESS WORK?

 Doctors perform laser lipolysis using a fiber-optic cable that is inserted through a small incision in the skin. The light from the laser penetrates the skin, destroying fatty tissue in the process. At the same time, it causes the skin to contract, helping it tighten around the new contours of the body.

The treatment is particularly effective when used on smaller parts of the body such as the underarms, the inner thighs, the jowls, or the abdominal region. The tightening of the skin is particularly important in these regions since it can dramatically affect the final outcome. The procedure is also sometimes used as a retouching tool to help tighten skin from previous liposuction procedures. Some doctors also use it in conjunction with traditional liposuction. 

The laser sculpture, which is the tool that is used to perform laser liposuction, relies on photothermal energy to destroy fat in the body. The heat from the laser simultaneously encourages neocolagengenesis (the production of collagen).

Here are some of the primary advantages of laser lipo when compared to traditional liposuction:

* Patients are less likely to experience problems with loose, flaccid skin since the laser encourages the skin to contract.

* The tissue surrounding the fatty deposits experiences far less damage with laser liposuction than it does with traditional liposuction.

* The risk of bleeding or hematomas is reduced thanks to the coagulative effect produced by the laser.

* The recovery process takes a lot less time than with classic liposuction.

* The incision is incredibly small, measuring approximately a millimeter.

* Typically, laser liposuction can be done using local anesthesia.

* Because it is relatively mild and less invasive than traditional liposuction, laser lipo can be used on any part of the body.

* It can be used to improve the results from previous liposuction treatments.

* Doctors can combine both traditional liposuction and laser lipo to remove large amounts of fat while simultaneously tightening the skin.
