What Is Medical Aesthetics?

Sun exposure, poor diet, and stress can all contribute to accelerated aging. People who use harsh skin care products also add damage by creating more inflammation in your skin cells over time which speeds up the process of getting older! Medical aesthetic procedures have become increasingly popular due to shorter recovery times with little side effects or painful scarring from old-fashioned surgeries like knife cuts (yikes!). Medical aesthetics is an umbrella term referring to many different types of treatments designed for reversing signs of aging. Read below to find out more!

When should you consider medical aesthetics?

Medical aesthetics is a highly sought-after service, with many people wanting to appear youthful and healthy. Medical professionals have the ability and knowledge in order for you to get your skin looking its best no matter what life throws at it! While there are some who would say that only women need cosmetic treatments, today’s competitive workforce demands men also use these procedures as well if they want success on the job market–and now more than ever before since competition from other countries has increased dramatically over time too. Some popular aesthetic procedures include wrinkle reduction; facelift (which tighten sagging muscles); facial rejuvenation such as same-day peels or injections into wrinkles/age spots; beauty mark makeup application using products made especially by medical professionals…all designed specifically to keep your skin looking young and healthy!

Types of procedures available

Qualified doctors provide a variety of procedures to give subtle tweaks to your face for a

refreshed and renewed look. Here are the top four procedures:

Chemical Peels

In this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. It is a non-invasive procedure that helps improve the tone and texture of the skin. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, scars, and discolored skin and it can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures. Depending on the issue with the skin, chemical peels are used in three depths: light, medium, and deeper. Light peels give a nice radiance and glow with zero downtime.

Botox Injections

Botox is the most common procedure used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They are also used to treat deep creases and dropping brows. It works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles and temporarily paralyzes or freezes the muscles causing wrinkles to reduce in appearance. It is most effective in areas where the muscles move frequently. The number of injections will depend on the size and extent of the affected area.

Juvederm fillers

The injectable dermal filler helps restore the lost facial volume by softening wrinkles, reducing shallow contours, and plumping thin lips. This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler focuses on the face, specifically the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Each product in this range uses a different type of hyaluronic acid concentration and is tailored to target specific problems.


For those who want to manage unwanted and exercise-resistant fat areas, coolsculpting treatment is the best option. The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared,* non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle
