What is Aesthetic Medicine?
Aesthetic Medicine, also known as cosmetic medicine, is a branch of medicine that focuses on enhancing a person’s appearance using non-surgical or minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. It involves procedures that are designed to improve the overall appearance of the skin, face, body, and hair.
Aesthetic medicine includes a wide range of treatments, including injectable fillers, neurotoxins (such as Botox), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, and various skin rejuvenation treatments such as microneedling and radiofrequency.
These treatments can address a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and loss of volume in the face. Some aesthetic procedures can also be used for body contouring, such as liposuction, non-surgical fat reduction, and cellulite treatments.
Aesthetic medicine is usually performed by licensed medical professionals, such as dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and aesthetic nurses, and can be tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual. The goal of aesthetic medicine is to help individuals feel more confident and comfortable in their appearance by achieving a natural-looking, youthful, and refreshed look.
