The Benefits of Aesthetic Medicine

The benefits of aesthetic medicine are numerous. Aesthetic treatments can correct problems associated with traumatic injuries, resulting in disfigurement and reduced body function. Burns, for example, can contract skin and limit the limb’s movement. Certain medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, can also be addressed with this treatment. Patients suffering from a condition such as psoriasis can benefit from aesthetic medicine. Aesthetic treatments can improve the appearance of a weakened immune system and help the body recover faster.

Botox

The FDA first approved the use of Botox for aesthetic purposes in 2002, opening the door to a new era of non-invasive, painless cosmetic procedures. Botox has become a popular treatment for scowl lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles and is now used in many cosmetic practices. Maine Laser Skin Care is one of the few Maine cosmetic practices offering Botox.

Dermal fillers

There are a few risks that come with using dermal fillers to improve the way you look. In addition to the potential for complications, dermal fillers are often sometimes uninsurable. While most dermal fillers are safe, some patients may have side effects, including bleeding or infection. Patients should ask their physician about any potential risks before undergoing the treatment. In addition, health insurance plans don’t cover elective cosmetic procedures.

Micro-coring

The procedure is a significant breakthrough in aesthetic treatments. It involves hollow needles that remove micro cores of tissue, which result in reduced sagging skin and improved wrinkle appearance. In addition, micro-Coring offers a non-surgical alternative to energy-based ablative laser treatments, which require significant downtime. This treatment involves a tiny dermo-epidermal incision.

Laser treatments

To be successful in cosmetic laser and light treatments, it is essential to remain current with the latest technology. To ensure the best results for your patients, you should monitor your laser output with an external energy measurement device. Laser treatments are more effective when the laser matches the patient’s skin type.  The following are some of the most common laser treatments.

Platelet-rich plasma injections

Whether looking for a more youthful appearance or want to smooth out fine lines, platelet-rich plasma injections may be right for you. These treatments use platelets from your blood to stimulate the production of collagen. The result is firmer, more youthful-looking skin. You’ll feel the results almost instantly. You can also use platelet-rich plasma as a topical anesthetic.

Chemical peels

There are many reasons why you might want to consider chemical peels as an aesthetic treatment. They may help you to remove sun spots and freckles, as well as improve uneven skin colour. Other possible uses for chemical peels are to treat acne, scars, and precancerous growths. However, these procedures are generally not recommended for patients with sagging skin. The normal post-chemical peel recovery process involves redness and scabbing the treated skin. If scarring is a concern, antibiotics may help soften the scars.

Hair transplantation

The use of hair transplantation for aesthetic purposes is becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason. Although it cannot replicate the density of a patient’s hair, it can help restore lost eyebrows and eyelashes. Hair transplantation is also helpful in restoring pubic hair and can even be used to fill in scars from accidents or previous hair transplants. Unlike traditional skin grafting, hair transplantation is a more complex process that involves many tiny grafts rather than a single strip of skin.
