The world of aesthetics made the cover of the June 2015 issue of TIME magazine. Clearly face and body aesthetics are an integral part of our lives today but can be a difficult maze through which to navigate. Education is essential to determine which of the myriad of options available would best help each patient achieve his or her goals. No one wants to appear “done” or unnatural. Fortunately the tide is turning and now more and more patients are seeking a more natural look with simple restoration of volume loss not overfilling of these areas.
A perfect example of this is a new cutting edge treatment for double chins called Kybella. This revolutionary treatment is injected into the fat under the chin and essentially “melts” the fat cells away. When paired with our ultrasound treatment, Ultherapy, lifting and tightening can occur as well. As both of these treatments occur under the skin, patients have very little, if any, downtime associated with these procedures.
It’s not all about vanity. If we take the time to take care for our houses, cars, and clothes why would we not maintain ourselves and our appearance? Fortunately we live in an era of minimally invasive procedures, and it is easy to put together a custom strategy involving both products and procedures that will help each patient to meet his or her skin care goals.
