Aesthetic medicine is a broad term that applies to any specialty or medical practice that involves the process of modifying a patient's physical appearance. The goal may be to enhance a person's face and body, or decrease the risk of certain types of diseases including obesity. This is medical scope that includes dermatology and surgical practices, starting from non-invasive treatments such as laser treatments to invasive procedures such as reconstructive surgeries.
We sometimes do things "for the sake of appearance". Aesthetic Medicine encompasses all medical procedures that are aimed at improving the physical appearance and satisfaction of the patient, using non-invasive to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. A very positive benefit of practicing Aesthetic Medicine is the type of care that practitioners are offering to their patients. These medical procedures are elective and are performed on patients who as a rule do not suffer from illness.
Most Aesthetic Medicine procedures are performed under loco-regional anesthesia. The Aesthetic Medicine practice is not confined to dermatologists and plastic surgeons as doctors of all specialties seek to offer services to address their patient’s aesthetic needs and desires. A growing trend among baby boomers is that aesthetic treatments are part of a normal health routine with the goal of maintaining a natural and healthy appearance. Patients not only want to be in good health, they also want to enjoy life to the fullest, be fit and minimize the effects of normal aging.
Aesthetic Medicine can combine the best of both worlds. Medical aesthetic services involve high-technology skin care that represents the fusion of healthcare and beauty services for maximum patient benefit. The Aesthetic Medicine practice involves the use of advanced technologies to provide a medically based procedure designed to cause a significant cosmetic change or enhancement. These services can include the use of lasers or other energy based devices.
Cosmetic medical treatments offer a wide range of options for people who want to look and feel better. They are very effective when used alone, but also work well as a complement to cosmetic surgery. Physicians practicing Aesthetic Medicine are trained in both invasive and non-invasive treatment modalities, and typically utilize a combination to meet the needs of the patient.
