The Top 5 Aesthetic Medicine Procedures

Over the last 10 to 20 years, there have been numerous advances seen in the world of aesthetic medicine

The benefits are now well recognized, and affordability makes this a constantly sought after treatment.

There are a variety of treatments are offered these days – if you walk into a cosmetic surgery practice to get a few wrinkles on your face smoothened out, you will find that the choices are so many it can be hard to decide!

Having said that, however, there are only a few that are popular amongst patients. While there is no specific list that details out the most popular treatments, at the IAPAM, we feel that these are the top 5 that are currently sought out.

#5 – Chemical peels

Chemical peels are a simple, non-invasive way of improving skin tone and texture. It is often offered as a treatment for hard to treat acne (and acne scars), liver spots and freckles. 

The procedure is fairly straightforward, and the results are reasonably good and depend on the type of skin peel. 

Deeper skin peels can take longer to heal, and patients can develop skin redness and irritation during that time. 

Despite this, it still remains a sought after treatment, with an increase of 15.5% seen between 2011 and 2012 in the number of patients seeking this treatment.

#4 – Microdermabrasion

Yet another popular treatment. It rejuvenates the skin gently, and is useful in managing skin scarring and sun damage. It reduces the appearance of stretch marks and dark pigmentation of the skin. 

The procedure is fairly straightforward and involves gently running a device that has a number of micro-crystals on its surface on the skin. 

It gently removes dead cells and exposes the new skin cells underneath, providing a refreshed and rejuvenated look.

#3 – Laser Hair removal

This simple procedure does exactly what it says on the tin – removes fine hair using a laser. But the question many ask is why they should seek laser treatment when it is easier to shave or wax the skin? The answer to that is the long term effects and results that one gets with laser removal.

The lasers are targeted at the root of each unwanted hair follicle, and this destroys the melanin pigment that normally stimulates hair growth. 

There are a number of different lasers available that can be used to treat excessive facial or body hair, and the commonly used ones include Nd:Yag laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

#2 – Dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid)

Right, now it’s getting interesting. You may have seen it in your favorite magazine, or read it in the news – dermal fillers are getting even more popular, and the treatment is here to stay. 

Fuller lips and plumper, softer skin are no longer a dream – they can be a reality in just a few minutes. With the advent of natural dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid, treatments are a lot safer and results are very impressive.

#1 – Botox® injections

Most certainly the ‘Big Daddy’ of all aesthetic procedures in our opinion. Botox® has become a lot more popular in the last 5 years.

Everyone’s favorite celebrity is doing it these days. And the treatment is a lot cheaper than undergoing plastic surgery. This is a procedure that gets awesome results with a non-invasive treatment. 

In fact, treatments performed per year has increased nearly 900% since 2000! 

You can even have your treatment on your lunch break – it is so easy to get done. But make sure it is done by someone who is certified and has the experience – the results will be oh so much better! 

The toxin works its magic by blocking off nerve endings to the skin, and allowing the skin tone to increase dramatically. If you are looking for that younger look, then this is what you should be going for!
