What is medical aesthetics?

Medical aesthetics, or aesthetic medicine, is a field of medicine focused solely on improving physical appearance and helping patients achieve their desired look without plastic surgery. 

Medical aesthetics is particularly focused on skincare and addresses concerns such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage and skin aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sagging skin and loss of youthful appearance
  • Stretch marks and scarring

Many patients also turn to medical aesthetics to accentuate and enhance facial features like the cheekbones, lips, nose, chin, and jaw. To curate your appearance, League Health Urgent & Primary Care offers skincare and injectable treatments like Botox® and filler.

Other popular medical aesthetics treatments include but are not limited to:

  • Microneedling
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Scar management

Regardless of their exact nature, medical aesthetic treatments are always non-invasive or minimally invasive.

What is Botox?

Botox is a derivative of purified botulinum toxin A. It relaxes overly active facial muscles to reduce or eliminate the dynamic wrinkles or expression lines caused by the contraction of facial muscles. Lines and wrinkles like these include:

  • Worry lines and frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines

League Health Urgent & Primary Care may also use Botox to treat neck and eye spasms, excessive sweating, or migraine headaches.

What are fillers?

Fillers, or dermal fillers, are gel-like injectables that treat signs of aging like thin skin, static wrinkles, and fine lines. They can also improve or enhance facial features by:

  • Diminishing the appearance of recessed scars
  • Plumping thin lips
  • Removing or decreasing lower eyelid shadows
  • Amplifying the appearance of shallow contours
  • Fixing facial contour deformities

To achieve these results, League Health Urgent & Primary Care injects the fillers directly under the skin you’d like to treat.

Medical aesthetics professionals offer many different types of filler, including those composed of hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and biocompatible substances like poly-L-lactic acid and polymethyl methacrylate.

The best type of filler for you depends on the location and nature of your desired results and how long you’d like them to last. 

You’re already beautiful, but you deserve to feel your best. If you’re unhappy with your appearance or want to enhance your facial features without surgery, medical aesthetics may be right for you.
