Who is an Aesthetic Medicine Specialist?

Aesthetic medicine specialists (ماہر جمالیات) deal with the improvement of the physical features, as per the requirement of the patient. They use conservative and minimally invasive procedures to carry out the requisite changes in appearance.

An aesthetic medicine specialist uses amalgamation of dermatology and plastic surgery to yield results desired by the patients.

They use needles for multiple jobs like derma fillers and injecting neurotoxins. They also offer advice over nutrition, since what we eat has implications for our appearance.

They also perform microdermabrasion, a procedure that involves using a special tool to sand away the outer layer of the skin. It helps to mitigate sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, melasma, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, etc.

Moreover, they also carry out chemical peel, a procedure that helps in the exfoliation and hence rejuvenation of the skin.

These specialists are also responsible for treating cellulite, which occurs due to unevenness in the layer of fat, that then causes ridges to develop, instead of smooth skin.

IPL and LASER are techniques aimed at permanent, or at least, semi-permanent hair removal. Aesthetic Medicine Specialists carry out these procedures as well.

Furthermore, issues concerning the hair are also addressed by Aesthetic Medicine Specialist (ماہر جمالیات). They treat hair loss, but also perform hair reduction procedures as well.

Similarly, Aesthetic Medicine Specialist also help in reducing the appearance of fat, by using techniques like non-surgical liposuction. They employ techniques like fat grafting and PRP as well. They also use body contouring techniques to make the figure of the patient look as per their requirement.

These experts also perform cosmetic gynecological procedures. They also help people with scar management alongside performing venous treatments.

Other procedures performed by aesthetic medicine specialists include brachioplasty, laser tattoo removal, cryolipolysis, lipotomy etc.

Furthermore, as doctors, they are also able to assess the underlying problem behind the issue faced by the patient, for example, understanding why is the patient experiencing hirsutism etc.
