What are some common aesthetic treatments?
There have been significant advances in aesthetic medicine. It offers a variety of cosmetic treatments to enhance your outward appearance. The following procedures are quite famous and in demand.
Dermal fillers: The derma fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. They treat several problems like smoothing of deep under-eye circles, lifting of cheekbones, giving volume to the lips, and rejuvenating hands. The main advantage of these fillers is that they can be dissolved if the person does not like their effect on their appearance. There is very minimal discomfort during this procedure.
Laser Hair Removal: This procedure involves removing fine hair using a laser. The lasers target each unwanted hair follicle's roots and destroy the melanin pigment that stimulates hair growth. The main benefit of laser hair removal is the long-term effects and results of this procedure.
Chemical Peels: This procedure is an effortless, non-invasive way to improve skin texture and tone. It is used to treat acne scars, liver spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new skin underneath becomes smoother and appears less wrinkled.
Microdermabrasion: This type of treatment rejuvenates the skin gently and helps manage skin scarring and sun damage. It helps to reduce the stretch marks and dark pigmentation of the skin. The procedure involves running a device that has many micro-crystals on the surface of the skin. It removes the dead cells and exposes the new skin cells underneath, giving a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Botox Injections: These injections are used to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, thus making the wrinkles relax and soften. The procedure involves injecting Botox toxins into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. The effects from Botox will last up to six months.
