Typical questions asked in the Medical Aesthetics Hands-On Workshops are as follows;
How does a Clinical Skin Care Program differ than a beauty program?
The program provides enhanced personalized attention through a comprehensive analysis, assessment, and in-depth skin care planning.Services performed are performed by the physician, nurse and clinical aestheticians. This is an ongoing facial aesthetics program which addresses both the medical and non-medical concerns of various skin conditions. A beauty program is a in and out kind of program and does not provide the indepth consulting or clinical skills deemed necessary in Medical Aesthetics.
Who performs the procedures?
The physician will will perform many of the minimally invasive procedures such as Botox®, Restylane® and possible Ellipse® Laser Peels. The physician should always be available for bottom line " patients needs". The nurse ( LPN,RN, NP ), can many times step in and complete these procedures by addtional touchups or offering other other services within a specific time frame.
The clinical aesthetician ( licensed aestheticians with specialized training in Medical Aesthetics ) would be performing the facial aesthetics procedures designated by the physician. Many times the client will say she choose his/her doctors medical aesthetics program because of the execution of skills, personalization and positive outcomes.
