Aesthetic Medicine encompasses all medical procedures that aim to improve physical appearance and patient satisfaction, from non-invasive to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Aesthetic Medicine is not limited to dermatologists and plastic surgeons, as doctors of all specialties seek to offer services that meet the aesthetic needs and desires of their patients. Some aesthetic medicine procedures are performed under local anesthesia, others do not even require anesthetics.
The exciting field of Aesthetic Medicine is a new trend in modern medicine. Patients not only want to be in good health, they also want to make the most of life, be in shape and minimize the effects of normal aging. In fact, patients are increasingly looking for quick, non-invasive procedures with little downtime and very little risk. As a general rule, the needle increasingly replaces the scalpel.
