Aesthetic Medicine and Top Cosmetic Procedures:
What is the goal of Aesthetic Medicine?: The primary goal of Aesthetic Medicine is to enhance a patients self-satisfaction by utilizing minimally invasive procedures aimed at maintaining a natural and healthy appearance. Thus allowing consumers to “look as young as they feel”, “look better for their age” or simply allowing them to “feel more confident” about themselves. Studies have found Aesthetic Medicine could actually have some real health benefits because individuals that feel good about the way they look tend to lead more productive and happier lives and can actually live longer.
Who is having it done?: Did you know that more than half of consumers are considering a cosmetic skin procedure in order to improve their appearance? According to survey data from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 52% of respondents are considering esthetic treatments and many of them are already doing it. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports more than 13.4 million minimally invasive procedures were performed in the USA in 2013.
What were the top 5 minimally invasive procedures performed last year?: #1 Botulinum Toxin (Botox -#1 Procedure 8 years running), #2 Soft Tissue Fillers (such a Juvederm & Restylane), #3 Chemical Peels, #4 Laser Hair Removal, and #5 Microdermabrasion.
With Botulinum Toxin (Botox) being #1, tell us what it is & how it works?: It is a very simple, few minute, procedure that can soften or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles. Botox is a neuromodulator that prevents or works to smooth out wrinkle formation by relaxing the muscles responsible for forming these lines. It typically takes 4-7 days from injection to start to work and 14 days to take full effect, lasting about 3-6 months. Botox is a quick, easy and affordable procedure that can provide dramatic results.
Some other considerations: Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures tend to be affordable, have minimal side effects and when administered properly will offer dramatic and extremely effective results. When undergoing any cosmetic procedure, remember, it is very important to use a highly trained, specialized, and extremely competent injector.
