Medical Aesthetics Q&A
What is medical aesthetics?
Medical aesthetics is a category of medicine that primarily focuses on cosmetic concerns. While such concerns might not be a threat to your health, you may wish to address them for self-esteem or confidence-boosting purposes.
At Wellness Medicine McKinney, Dr. Philips offers several medical aesthetic treatment options that are highly popular, especially among those who want to turn back the clock because, as you age, your appearance changes in a number of ways.
It can be jarring to compare your current appearance to your younger self, and while you can’t stop aging, you can minimize some of the unfavorable side-effects with medical aesthetics procedures.
Which issues can medical aesthetics address?
Medical aesthetics primarily addresses physical features like your skin or your hair. These procedures might improve your skin's health, but they also make it look better than before by improving its structure. With aesthetic treatments available at Wellness Medicine McKinney, you can address:
- Fine lines
- Volume loss
- Skin discoloration
- Large pores
- Skin roughness or dryness
- Hair loss
- Stretch marks
Medical aesthetics addresses concerns like these without surgery. Because these treatments are non-surgical, they require very little preparation and little to no recovery time.
What are my medical aesthetics treatment options?
At Wellness Medicine McKinney, Dr. Philips provides several of the latest and most sought-after medical aesthetics procedures and services. During an initial consultation, she asks about your concerns and helps you make realistic, achievable goals. Depending on your needs, she might recommend one or more of the following:
Botox®, Jeuveau® and Xeomin
Botox, Jeuveau and Xeomin are brand-name cosmetic injectable forms of botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that temporarily stops communications between nerves and muscles. They treat facial wrinkles and fine lines, such as those around the eyes and along the forehead.
Dermal fillers can supply your skin with volume after it loses subdermal fat with age. You can use injectable fillers to temporarily boost fullness in your lips, cheeks, or temples, or to address deep-set wrinkles.
Microneedling is a treatment that stimulates collagen production within your skin by causing small injuries that your tissues must heal. It minimizes wrinkles, scars, large pores, dryness, and other common cosmetic skin concerns.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP is a regenerative substance that uses components of your blood to stimulate cell turnover. That can help improve your skin or stimulate hair growth in thinning or balding areas.
Medical aesthetics allow you to improve the way you look without the time and potential complications of cosmetic surgery. To book a consultation for aesthetic treatments, call Wellness Medicine McKinney, or schedule one online today.
