Combined Approaches to Aesthetic Treatments
- Posted on: Apr 13 2018
Dermatologists typically offer a variety of treatment options. In many cases, no single solution will properly address a patient’s concerns. Instead, a combination of approaches may be needed to achieve desirable results. Combined approaches to aesthetic treatments is actually more common than most patients realize. Below are some examples.
Botox and Hyaluronic Acid Treatments
One of the most popular combined approaches to aesthetic treatments is Botox and hyaluronic acid. Botox is a neuromodulator. It relaxes muscles and provides a smoothing effect. It if often used around the eyes and on the forehead. Hyaluronic acid is a “filler”. It fills in creases and folds, thus creating contour and lift. It is typically used to target the cheeks, mouth, and nose.
Combined, they allow aesthetic providers to target different regions of the face simultaneously, thereby achieving maximum results.
Laser and Light Therapies
When discussing combined approaches to aesthetic treatments, laser and light therapies are another one worth mentioning. Both are commonly used for skin treatments and have unique targets and benefits.
The type of laser treatment used depends on the layer of skin being treated. The outer surface would require a different laser than deeper levels of the skin. It can be used to treat anything from scars to acne, hair removal, and sun damage. It is a vary targeted approach and addresses very specific problems.
Unlike lasers, light therapy covers a wider area of skin. One of its many benefits is the promotion of skin regeneration. This can be extremely helpful after laser or other types of skin treatments since it aids the healing process. The combination of laser and light therapies are therefore naturally complimentary.
Why Combined Approaches to Aesthetic Treatments Work
No skin therapy treatment is a cure-all. Combined approaches allow medical professionals to leverage the benefits of various methodologies to provide better overall results. The above are just two examples of potential combinations. The combination of therapies recommended to you will depend on your personal circumstances and goals.
