Specialist specific services for cosmetic treatments – trends upwards
Upward trends are promoted especially by celebrities. The majority of people who get cosmetic treatments are need driven. Treatments contribute to one’s looks, appearance, personality, impression, authority and power and more importantly it takes years off your face… Hence cosmetic procedures are used by celebrities, executives, youngsters and metro or Alfa males.
The next best cosmetic treatment or item is regularly promoted by celebrities and product companies with miraculous results promise. It can be hard to sort through the best options for looking and feeling your best.
There are common concerns such as stretch marks loose skin tightening, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dynamic lines improvement, facial spider veins, brown “age spots,” senile angiomas or small red moles and unwanted hair. In fact, hair reduction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the western world.
Majority of conditions are treated with laser and light treatments, radiofrequency and cosmecuticals. Some require prescription treatment/ medication under a specialist’s supervision.
IPL and laser services are similar in some respects, but physicians may choose to recommend one service over another based on a number of factors including the type of condition you want to treat, your skin type and your lifestyle. IPL uses multiple wavelengths of light rays to treat various skin problems. It operates on a wider range of wavelengths with varying intensity, allowing it to treat more than just one type of skin condition. On the other hand, a laser uses one continuous light wavelength and is typically stronger than IPL. The laser removes outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates collagen production.
While both treatment modalities are safe and effective, the provider will determine which service has the best chance for a successful treatment.
In terms of setting, both the IPL and laser services are performed on an outpatient basis. Patients typically feel minimal discomfort from the procedures, and depending on the type of condition being treated, the appointment may only take a few minutes. Some conditions require as few as two or three treatments to see noticeable results.
After deciding to explore treatment options for one or more of the common cosmetic conditions, a physician typically will schedule a consultation visit and skin examination as the first step. At that time, the provider will be able to determine which treatment type will work most effectively.
Also during the consultation, the physician likely will be able to estimate as to how many treatments will be needed to achieve the desired results. Questions or concerns about the treatment plan can also be addressed at this time. Because cosmetic services are personalized to the patient, what’s right for one person might not be right for all?
While it’s always a good idea to be proactive in your care and to learn about the different types of services a provider offers, you should remember that physicians have the education, skills and tools to recommend the product or service that’s best for you. It is vital in case of cosmetic surgery cases that you have chosen the right surgeon for the type of surgery you want. For example many cosmetic surgeons who are not trained in eyes as specialists, tend to attempt to operate on eye lids as cosmetic surgery. The surgery performed by the non specialist is very different to the one performed by the specialist in the subject. This I witness in my clinic all the time.
It’s also important that you be open and honest with your physician about the results you want to achieve, so that the whole experience or the journey is worthwhile…
