But what exactly does medical aesthetics involve? If you are looking to either undergo a procedure or are in fact want to be a part of the expert team, there are certain procedures in this field that you should be aware of. 

Let’s take a closer look at this.

When is medical aesthetics applicable?

Medical aestheticans’ treatments are usually required when it comes to managing patients who have suffered from skin burns, who have had surgery for skin cancer or those who have suffered from some sort of trauma to the skin. 

While this reflects its role in the medical world, it also is applicable to the world of cosmetic surgery.

What are the procedures involved?

Medical aesthetics can involve a number of different procedures, many of which are popular already. 

A detailed discussion on each procedure is out of the scope of this article, but a brief description is warranted. 

Below are a few commonly employed procedures –

  1. Botulinum toxin – Popularly called botox injections, this procedure is useful not only in the cosmetic world but also in the field of neurology. It is useful in managing wrinkles and is a popular anti-ageing solution allowing patients to look a lot younger after a treatment session. However, it can also be used to manage muscle spasticity in children with cerebral palsy or any such similar muscle disorders.
  2. Sclerotherapy – This is a procedure commonly used to treat cosmetically unsightly thread veins on the surface of the skin using an irritant product called a sclerosant. Treatment is fairly effective but can take some time to show effect.
  3. Chemical peels – This procedure involves using a gentle acid that peels off the superficial layer of the skin revealing a healthier, more actively growing deeper layer. There are a variety of them available that will improve the look and texture of the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. Dermal fillers – This procedure involves using a variety of different products (e.g. hyaluronic acid) to fill areas of the skin that need evening out or rejuvenating.
  5. Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light – This is based on the principle that skin absorbs different wavelengths of light which can in turn promote skin growth and recovery. It is used in managing wrinkles and scars, just to name a few indications.


Medical aesthetics is a rapidly growing field in cosmetic medicine. 

While the procedures listed above are just a few, it is clear that they have widespread applications, not just to enhance beauty but to also treat a variety of medical conditions.
