The journey of Kim Detollenaere
Influencer, vlogger and medical doctor Kim Detollenaere decided to dive deeper into the world of filler injections. During her research, she bumped into the complications and dangers of fillers, as well as ways to have filler injections done in a better, more accurate and safer way. Of course, our cutting-edge technology ARtery 3D immediately comes to mind when we’re discussing ways to perform filler treatments more safely.
After some very thorough research, Kim decided to take matters into her own hands and she scheduled an appointment with ARtery 3D founder Prof. Dr. Benoit Hendrickx to find out what our technology was all about. Read all about the journey of medical doctor Kim Detollenaere in this blogpost.
The on-going popularity of filler injections all over the world
First of all, it’s very important to address that the cosmetic industry has drastically changed over the years. In the past, fillers were seen as a luxury reserved only for celebrities and those with deep pockets. However, in recent years, we have witnessed a significant shift in perception towards cosmetic treatments such as fillers. The growing acceptance of fillers can be attributed to various factors such as social media and influencers like Kylie Jenner. These trends have resulted in a surge of interest in fillers and other cosmetic treatments, with millions of people worldwide eager to try them out.
Dermal fillers have become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures due to their ability to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness, resulting in sagging and wrinkles. Dermal fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance into the skin, plumping it up and filling in any hollows or wrinkles. They are a minimally invasive alternative to surgical procedures and offer quick results with minimal downtime. With the rise of social media and the pressure to look our best, dermal fillers have become increasingly popular among men and women of all ages. Overall, dermal fillers have become a go-to option for those seeking a non-surgical way to rejuvenate their appearance.
The complications, risks and dangers of filler injections
The first part of medical doctor Kim Detollenaere’s journey, was raising awareness. So she did some research on the possible complications and risks of filler injections. Kim decided to put all the important information she gathered in a video, trying to explain to the world what the possible risks of getting filler injections actually are.
Because while dermal fillers have become a popular cosmetic treatment, many people are unaware of the risks and potential complications that come with them. Inexperienced practitioners or substandard products can result in serious complications such as infections, blindness, necrosis, allergic reactions, and even disfigurement.
Unfortunately, many patients seek out cheaper alternatives, often administered by untrained or unlicensed individuals, resulting in disastrous outcomes. It’s important to understand that while dermal fillers are a minimally invasive alternative to surgery, they are still medical procedures that carry risks. It’s crucial to seek out a qualified and reputable clinic that prioritizes safety over cost to avoid the potential dangers associated with dermal fillers.
ARtery 3D: a safer way to perform filler injections
After Kim Detollenaere discovered all the risks and dangers associated with dermal fillers during her research, she was determined to find a safer way to get filler injections done. That’s when she discovered our app ARtery 3D, and how our cutting-edge technology allows for more accurate and precise filler injections. Kim was impressed with the level of precision and accuracy that this technology offered by using AR visualization.
As a vocal advocate for safe cosmetic treatments, Kim was very eager to share her experience with ARtery 3D with her followers, encouraging others to prioritize safety and quality in their own cosmetic procedures.
Testing out ARtery 3D in real life
As soon as Kim heard about our groundbreaking app ARtery 3D, she was intrigued and decided to test it out for herself. After doing a one-time risk-free MRI scan (which is a necessary but harmless step to be able to use the app), Kim paid a visit to the office of our founder, Prof. Dr. Benoit Hendrickx.
Of course, he was more than happy to explain every detail to her and he gave her a demonstration of how the app and the technology actually works. Using the ARtery 3D app, he was able to visualize her facial arterial network, which allows for more precise and accurate filler injections. Kim Detollenaere was impressed and realized that with the help of ARtery 3D, cosmetic experts are able to perform filler injections in a better, more accurate, and safer way, ensuring optimal results for their patients.
