Many people wish they could turn back time to the days of their youth with supple, plump skin. Some things they would do differently would be to have a regular skincare routine, be more gentle with their skin, treat their bodies better, and wear sunscreen to protect and prevent skin aging.
Once upon a time, it seemed that the only way to reverse those visible signs of aging was to seek out a plastic surgeon and opt for a facelift. There was incredible downtime for healing, ghastly scarring, and tens of thousands of dollars spent, all to redeem a youthful appearance.
With the rise of dermo aesthetics, these invasive and painful surgeries are being replaced with state-of-the-art skincare treatments that can assist in achieving that youthful glow with little to no downtime. And are more accessible than going under the knife with a plastic surgeon.
What are dermo aesthetics?
Dermo aesthetics is an innovative field that combines the science of dermatology with the artistry of aesthetics. This fast-growing field is about helping clients achieve healthy, beautiful skin through advanced treatments and procedures.
The term dermo aesthetics is relatively new and has been gaining popularity in the past few years. However, the practice of combining dermatology with aesthetics has been around for decades, with dermatologists and aestheticians working together to provide patients with safe and effective treatments to help improve the appearance of their skin.
Meet the dermo aesthetic professionals.
Dermatologists are specialized doctors who diagnose and treat skin, hair, and nail conditions, from common issues like acne to more serious conditions like skin cancer. They use their medical knowledge to provide treatments that are both safe and effective.
Aestheticians, on the other hand, focus on improving the appearance of the skin through non-medical treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Their expertise lies in the art of aesthetics, using their creativity and skill to help patients look and feel their best.
What type of technology is available?
Dermo aesthetics bridges the gap between these two fields, combining medical-grade treatments with aesthetic techniques to provide clients with the best of both worlds, by using medical-grade treatments such as dermal fillers and toxic botulinum known by it’s registered name of BOTOX. It’s one of the deadliest toxins in the world and for your safety, should only be administered by a dermatologist or medical doctor trained in injectables.
Laser resurfacing is another popular dermo aesthetic treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns. This procedure uses a laser to remove the top layer of skin, stimulating collagen production to help improve the skin's texture and tone and so much more when it’s done by a technician who truly cares about you and your skin.
Radio-frequency, Fraxel laser, micro-needling and VascuLyse are examples of technology that can help reduce sun damage, deep wrinkles, acne scarring and more by stimulating collagen production. Some of these are more abrasive and should only be performed by a qualified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or a licensed aesthetician. Understanding the healing process is primordial in this type of procedure, as the healing process is what will deliver results. Remember that all skin is unique, so abrasive isn’t always better.
Dermo aesthetics also includes non-invasive procedures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion which are designed to improve the skin's appearance by removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production. These procedures are typically performed in a SkinCare Institute, Facial Studio, or Derm Clinic setting and require minimal downtime.
In addition to these treatments, Dermo Aesthetics also emphasizes the importance of a daily skincare routine that includes sun protection, moisturization, and gentle exfoliation. This helps to maintain the results of any dermo aesthetic treatments and keep the skin looking healthy and radiant.
Are these treatments safe?
Although these treatments are safe, not every treatment is right for everyone. Ensure that you have a thorough consultation, including your lifestyle, medical history and the medications you’re taking. Remember that hormone changes can also impact your skin, and treatment results may vary.
Most importantly, do your research on the professional treating your skin. Search for reviews and be confident about asking for their certifications regarding the treatment you are receiving. This is your skin, and you need to feel safe and trust the provider you are working with.
Dermo aesthetics is an exciting and rapidly advancing field that combines the science of dermatology with the artistry of aesthetics to help clients achieve healthy, beautiful skin. By providing safe and effective treatments that utilize medical knowledge and aesthetic expertise, skincare providers can help clients look and feel their best.
