Panfacial Contouring: My Experience
In every medical aesthetic procedure, patient safety is one of the main goals of a good doctor. That is why it is important to build doctor-patient relationship as it plays a vital role in how each procedure will be planned and achieved. Currently, Botulinum Toxin A and Dermal Fillers are well-known for its cosmetic indications to diminish moderate to severe facial wrinkles, for face contouring, lifting, volume and rejuvenation. Dermal fillers and toxins are the most commonly sought procedure when it comes to facial contouring as it brings out the person’s facial features more harmonized and balanced.
As with any of the novel technological innovations currently available, understanding of the different properties of the ingredients used and knowledge in optimal technique is vital to clinical and aesthetic success. In this day and age, we all know that there is no single treatment that can achieve all the results desired in facial contouring and we believe that combination treatment produces the best result.
Through this, I will be presenting the Panfacial Contouring: My Experience, more specifically how I have addressed the ever-changing preferences to the facial harmony and balance as seen in my practice.
Stem Cell Facelift
Various novel breakthroughs have been discovered in the field of medicine as technology & research are concerned. Regenerative Medicine is an area of biomedical research, technology and patient care that is rapidly growing. This field aims to develop fresh therapies to help our bodies restore or regenerate organs, tissues that have been damaged. Over the last two decades, a new therapeutic standard has emerged which has changed the way debilitating diseases may be treated in the future. Stem Cell has vast potential and new developments happening so quickly and a shift toward more minimally invasive techniques has resulted in a wider range of practitioners performing cosmetic and dermatologic procedures.
Through this, I’ll be presenting Stem Cell Facelift, more specifically how I have addressed the ever-changing preferences to the facial rejuvenation as seen in my practice.
