Medical aesthetics are an ever-growing trend of the improvement of one’s appearance. This refers to a wide variety of different treatments, and are offered at medical spas. Included in the term are microdermabrasion, chemical peels, microneedling, injectables, and many more.
What do aesthetic clinics offer for services?
InShape Medical offers a wide range of aesthetic services, including:
Botox — Botox has been a popular injection for decades. It uses the botulinum toxin to relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Microneedling — Microneedling uses ultra-small needles to penetrate the skin, reducing the appearance of skin conditions like acne.
Laser Hair Removal — As the name would suggest, laser hair removal is the removal of hair with the use of lasers. It is an effective alternative to shaving or waxing.
Body Contouring — Body contouring molds fat deposits on the body to give it a more sleek, natural appearance.
Microdermabrasion — Microdermabrasion is a treatment to remove dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin with the use of small crystals.
Chemical Peels — Chemical peels are peels applied to the skin to even skin tone, correct irregularities, and provide rejuvenation.
Laser Vein Treatments — Laser vein treatments are a procedure to reduce the appearance of varicose veins.
Non-surgical Facelift — Hence its title, a non-surgical facelift is a facial rejuvenation technique that does not require scalpels, anaesthetics, or downtime associated with surgical facelifts. There are different methods to perform this treatment.
What are the best skin care services?
InShape Medical offers many skin care services that are considered the best in today’s aesthetic community. We will outline a few of these services below:
Microdermabrasion — Microdermabrasion works to reduce the appearance of age spots and lighten acne scars. Because it is performed quickly in a facial aesthetics office, this procedure is one of the favorite wrinkle treatments. The clinician uses a handheld device to spray small crystals onto the surface of the skin. The crystals exfoliate the skin layers, while using suction simultaneously to remove the crystals and dead skin cells. More than one microdermabrasion treatment may be needed for complete wrinkle removal and for other skin treatments to see its full potential.
Chemical Peels — Chemical peels, also referred to as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling treatments, are cosmetic treatments performed on the face, generally used as an anti-aging solution to rejuvenate the skin. Chemical peels are used to correct skin irregularities in texture, such as fine lines, and color, such as spots caused by sun damage. These peels have varying strengths, characterized by the different kinds of acids used in the applied chemical solution. Chemical-peel solutions use three main acid ingredients to reach varying levels of intensity: alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol.
Laser Resurfacing — Laser skin resurfacing removes the outer layers of the skin that are damaged. The laser resurfacing procedure stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers of the skin. Laser resurfacing is now used to eliminate or reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation — Laser skin treatment is an advanced non-surgical wrinkle removal treatment that uses infrared light to tighten the skin. The laser light distributes heat to layers beneath the surface of the skin, stimulating collagen production and making the skin look tighter. Many patients consider this procedure to be a great alternative to traditional face lifts, as it requires no anesthesia, no scalpel, and no downtime.
What are aesthetic clinics?
There are three levels of cosmetic clinics. The first consists of beauty clinics run by beauticians, often referred to as dermal therapists or dermal technicians. These clinics offer standard beauty treatments including facials, peels, microdermabrasion and some light-based therapies. The second level consists of non-invasive cosmetic clinics run by doctors and cosmetic nurses who are qualified to administer a more diverse range of treatments including, cosmetic injectables, laser and body contouring. The final level consists of cosmetic surgeries, run by cosmetic surgeons who perform more invasive procedures including breast augmentation and liposuction.
