Aesthetic Treatment

 

Since the approval of botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, and lasers for cosmetic use, minimally invasive aesthetic procedures have rapidly become the treatments of choice for age-related facial changes.In the last decade, aesthetic procedures have increased rapidly. Botulinum toxin and dermal filler injections, laser hair reduction, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and intense pulsed light photorejuvenation are the most commonly performed procedures. These procedures are very much effective and associated with minimal discomfort, and they have a low incidence of adverse effects and short recovery times. High patient and physician satisfaction have contributed to their growing popularity and availability in the primary care setting.

Aesthetic Treatment

 

Minimally invasive procedures have become the primary treatment modalities for addressing mild to moderate age-related facial changes. In the past, treatment options were limited to surgical interventions, such as facelifts to redrape and lift lax skin, deep ablative laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion to improve texture, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Surgery is still an option for many patients, particularly those with signs of advanced facial aging. However, there has been a trend away from invasive one-time procedures, which may radically alter appearance and have greater risks, toward minimally invasive nonsurgical procedures, which offer subtle enhancements. Minimally invasive aesthetic procedures reliably achieve good outcomes, have minimal recovery times and a low incidence of side effects, and are associated with high patient satisfaction

 

Assessment of aging changes can be approached by evaluation of facial regions. Frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow's feet form in the upper one third of the face. Initially these are dynamic lines, visible during active muscle contraction, but over time they become deeper static lines that can be seen at rest. Prominent nasolabial folds and flattening of malar fat pads appear in the midface. The lower one third of the face exhibits later and more profound changes, with upper lip atrophy, perioral wrinkling, marionette lines, and jowl formation. Skin surface changes are evident in the 30s, with textural roughness and dryness, mottled pigmentation with solar lentigines around the periphery of the face, and telangiectasias around the nasal ala and cheeks.

Minimally invasive procedures can target patients’ specific aging complaints by relaxing overactive facial muscles, filling wrinkles, redefining facial contours, reducing unwanted hair, and improving epidermal hyperpigmentation and vascularities. When performed in an ongoing capacity, these procedures can promote and maintain a youthful appearance.
