Aesthetic Medicine/ Cosmetology

Aesthetic Medicine or Cosmetology is a broad term applied to specialists who work on enhancing one's cosmetic appearance either through surgery or other non-surgical means, such as botox injections or laser techniques.

Reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery and dermatology are all forms of medicine that fall under cosmetology. Often dentists, dermatologists or general practitioners decide to go and study bridging courses in cosmetology to broaden their scope of practice.

A few common problems that a cosmetology expert can help with are wrinkle reduction, scar, mole and excess fat removal, dealing with unwanted hair or spots and managing the appearance of discolored skin or spider veins. After discussing aesthetic concerns with a cosmetology expert, they will present the most appropriate treatment options to the patient and help them to decide.

Frequent cosmetic procedures include:

  • Botox Injections
  • Breast Implants
  • Chemical Skin Peels
  • Facelifts
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Liposuction
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Aesthetic treatments are often a necessity for those who have aesthetic deformities that fall outside of societal norms or that come with a stigma. These include third degree burn wound victims, those with a cleft lip, women who had their breasts removed due to breast cancer, those who survived vehicle accidents or who have severe work related injuries. 

Cosmetologists often work hand-in-hand with other medical professionals in these cases, such as dentists and physiotherapists. Therapists are often consulted in conjunction with cosmetic treatments, particularly in the case of psychological conditions such as anorexia or compulsive eating disorders.

While this form of medicine is generally not an urgent requirement for most people, many benefit from cosmetic treatments and vouch that they improve psychological well-being, confidence and the quality of life.
