Aesthetic medicine is an inclusive term for specialties that focus on improving cosmetic appearance through the treatment of various skin conditions.
Aesthetic medicine’s focus is on improving cosmetic appearance through the treatment of conditions including scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, skin discoloration, and spider veins.
Medical aesthetic services involve high-technology skin care that represents the fusion of healthcare and beauty services. It is the use of these advanced formulations that provide medically based non- surgical procedures designed to significantly achieve cosmetic change or enhancement, like botox or fillers. Other services can involve the use of ultrasound, radio frequency, lasers or other energy based devices.
Although aesthetic procedures are typically elective, they can significantly improve quality of life, psychological wellbeing and social function.
