Prevention is always better than cure, but skin problems tend to appear over time. Medical aesthetic treatments are often necessary. By combining different treatment methods, the effectiveness can be greatly enhanced.
Traditional medical aesthetic treatments focus on individual skin problems. A common example is laugh lines. In the past, fillers such as hyaluronic acid, Radiesse, and PLLA were used to inject into the laugh lines to make them disappear or nearly disappear. However, when the laugh lines disappear, the effect may not be natural. Often, if the amount of injection in the local area is too much, it will cause overfill and unnatural appearance. To deal with laugh line problems, it is important to first understand the cause of laugh line formation. Due to the loss of collagen in the cheeks, the skin becomes loose and saggy, and excessive muscle activity can cause laugh lines to form. The best treatment method is to combine multiple treatments, using hyaluronic acid for multiple point injections to support the tissue under the cheeks, and then use monopolar radio frequency or focused ultrasound to tighten the subcutaneous tissue. Finally, it is decided whether to inject directly into the laugh line position to fill the concave position. If only hyaluronic acid is used for filling, it is a short-term approach that may not achieve the best results. For example, the appearance of pigmentation is mostly caused by ultraviolet rays, which can cause different types of pigmentation to increase, such as freckles, hormonal spots, and sunspots. If only laser treatment is used to remove pigmentation, freckles and sunspots may fade, but the underlying hormonal spots may absorb too much laser energy and may even become more pronounced over time. The best treatment method is to combine multiple treatments, including glycolic acid peeling, whitening products that inhibit melanin production, and laser treatment, to effectively deal with the melanin problems in different layers of the skin. Wrinkles are also similar. If there are obvious forehead wrinkles, in addition to using botulinum toxin to weaken the muscles to improve dynamic wrinkles, segmented laser treatment can also reduce static wrinkles. If the situation is severe, hyaluronic acid can also be injected into the bottom of the wrinkles to smooth them out.
Skin problems have multiple causes. By combining different treatments, doctors can achieve better results than with a single treatment method.
