Aesthetics Q & A

What is aesthetics?

Aesthetics is the name used to describe treatments that aim to enhance or refine your appearance without the need for invasive surgery. These types of treatment are ideal for people who don’t want to go under the knife but wish to combat the signs of aging or take care of cosmetic problems that are affecting their self-image.

Thanks to new scientific knowledge, a whole range of noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments are now available that provide results that years ago you could only achieve through invasive surgical procedures.

What conditions can aesthetics treat?

Most procedures that would traditionally require surgery can now be carried out using noninvasive or minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, for example:

  • Reducing lines and wrinkles
  • Removing stubborn fat pockets
  • Tattoo removal
  • Minimizing varicose and spider veins
  • Reducing birthmarks
  • Lifting sagging skin
  • Filling hollow cheeks and temples
  • Removing a double chin
  • Permanent hair removal
  • Reducing scarring
  • Minimizing cellulite

With such a range of treatments available and with the affordable options on offer from providers like Refine Medical Aesthetics, you can boost your self-confidence and achieve the look you want without spending a small fortune.

What forms of aesthetic treatment are available?

A variety of different treatments and technologies is available for aesthetic procedures, including:

  • Injectable dermal fillers (e.g., Juvéderm®)
  • Injectable neurotoxins (e.g., Botox®)
  • Chemical peels
  • Dermabrasion
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Cryolipolysis (destruction of fat cells through freezing)
  • Neocollagenesis (tissue regeneration)
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy
  • Infrared
  • Ultrasound
  • Laser lipolysis (fat reduction technology)
  • Microneedling

The team at Refine Medical Aesthetics uses the latest, most effective treatments and advanced aesthetics platforms that are proven to be safe and which provide the most comfortable experience for their patients. Their philosophy is to refine rather than redefine, or in other words, bring out your natural beauty rather than change who you are.

What are the advantages of aesthetic treatments?

Aesthetic treatments do take longer to produce results in some cases, and the end result may not be as dramatic as that which is achievable with open surgery, but there are also distinct advantages:

  • No incisions, so reduced risk of infection
  • No need for general anesthetic or sedation, reducing the risk of complications
  • Less pain and discomfort
  • No blood loss
  • No stitches
  • No need to stay in hospital
  • Most treatments require little, if any, downtime
  • Faster recovery time
