What is Medical Aesthetic?
This is a broad term that incorporates any medical procedure that aims to modify or enhance a patient’s physical appearance. These procedures can provide long-term solutions to everything from the removal of unwanted hair to cellulite reduction. Medical aesthetics services can involve the use of lasers or other energy-based devices.
Basically, the scope of this medical specialty includes surgical practices and dermatology –both non-invasive and invasive procedures. Aesthetic medical procedures can either be performed on a patient’s body or face. Considering that medical aesthetics is technology-driven, there is no doubt that this medical branch is still evolving and improving.
With that said, let’s take a look at some of the most popular types of treatments under medical aesthetics:
- Reconstructive surgery: This surgery can be performed for two reasons: first, it aims to restore the appearance of a particular body part that may have been damaged due to an injury or disease. Second, it aims to improve the functionality of a particular part of the body, although this is secondary.
- Physical surgery: the sole purpose of this operation is to enhance the appearance of the body. The most popular physical surgery procedures are tummy tuck and liposuction (which are fat removal methods). Other procedures aim to improve the patient’s skin elasticity.
- Non-invasive procedures: these are aesthetic medicine practices that can be performed and completed during lunch breaks. Non-invasive procedures can improve the physical appearance of a patient without using general anesthesia or surgery. Skin tightening, chemical peeling, photorejuvenation, hair and tattoo removal are good examples of non-invasive procedures.
Some people are actually happy about their scars as they consider them to be a mark of pride, but others have a feeling of self-consciousness and they just don’t want their scars to be noticeable. It’s an open secret that scars can actually affect your appearance. The good part is that scars can be erased, but the process of scar treatment is regarded as the hardest process in the world of cosmetic and plastic surgery.
As hard as it might be, the good thing is that it’s not impossible. Yes, scars can be treated. Surgeons at Estepalace have the expertise when it comes to scar treatment, this can be evidenced by the before-and-pictures of their previous patients. In treating scars, the Estepalace surgeons can either use a surgical method, PRP, laser or some other methods. This actually depends on the time and the place that scar happened and the expectation of the patient.
This is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that is designed to resolve problem areas on the face. Mesotherapy can also be used for neck, under eye rejuvenation and back of the hand. In this treatment, Estepalace specialist surgeons usually apply chemical substances (vitamins, minerals, etc) and PRP for best results.
Basically, face mesotherapy can help with:
- Skin tightening
- Cellulite reductionLines and wrinkles
- Fat removal from the face, arms, thighs, stomach, hips, and legs
Half an hour before the procedure commences, anesthesia is applied to the skin with a cream. The procedure takes a couple of minutes to perform, and after the surgery, the patient is advised to avoid direct contact with the sun for about a week. Swimming or using face powder is also restricted for one week post-surgery.
This procedure aims to prevent the problem of hair loss in both men and women by increasing the density of hair formation. You can actually think of it as a process that regulates proteins, vitamins and other nutrients in the scalp. During this procedure, the scalp is moisturized in a way that prevents the formation of infections and accelerates hair formation. Hair mesotherapy is regarded as the fastest and most effective method when it comes to refreshing hair follicles.

As the name implies, fillings are substances that are used to fill up a certain space. In this context, the fillings we’re referring to are chemical substances used for medical purposes. Sometimes doctors use a person’s own fat as a filling, and this is effective because the body responds well to its own cells. Fillings made from the patient’s own fat can be applied on any area – lips, cheeks, face, neck or any other body part that needs to be rejuvenated using this process. After going through this process, a person can return to work soon after the procedure but it will take between 7 and 14 days for swellings to totally disappear.
