Aesthetic medicine is a health care specialty focused on improving appearances by treating wrinkles, unwanted hair, scars, spider veins, or cellulite. Aesthetic medicine involves non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures to reduce the signs of aging on almost any part of the body.
The most common cosmetic procedures include:
Village Family Medicine PC offers several medical aesthetic treatments under the supervision of the professional medical team, including:
Chemical peels are minimally invasive facial treatments that exfoliate and remove the top layer of skin with a chemical solution to stimulate skin renewal. Chemical peels treat skin discoloration, scars, and wrinkles. The skin that grows back to replace the removed layer of skin is healthier and smoother. Your new skin looks refreshed and younger.
Microdermabrasion is similar to a chemical peel in that it removes the outer layer of skin, but instead of using chemicals, it uses an abrasive instrument to sand the skin. Microdermabrasion removes the epidermis layer of skin and helps to thicken collagen. As the skin rejuvenates, it provides a more youthful appearance.
Microneedling rejuvenates your skin using fine needles to create tiny, microscopic injuries to the outer layer of skin. As the body heals the punctures, it improves collagen and elastin in the skin to give the skin a together, smoother, more youthful appearance. Microneedling also reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Microneedling with infusion takes microneedling a step further by delivering vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants below the skin surface. Microneedling with infusion offers immediately visible results and benefits over standard microneedling, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improving acne scars, and providing a brighter complexion.
Microneedling with infusion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Patients return to daily activities immediately after a treatment as skin redness is minimal and there is no downtime.
Medical aesthetics are minimally invasive procedures that are considered safer than surgery and allow for quicker recovery times. At Village Family Medicine PC, all aesthetic procedures are supervised by a licensed physician rather than untrained medical practitioners which further reduces potential risks.
