Aesthetic medicine is an inclusive term for specialties that focus on improving cosmetic appearance through the treatment of conditions including scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, skin discoloration, and spider veins. Traditionally, aesthetic medicine includes dermatology, reconstructive surgery and plastic surgery.
Aesthetic medicine includes both surgical procedures (liposuction, facelifts, breast implants, Radio frequency ablation) and non-surgical procedures (radio frequency skin tightening, non-surgical liposuction, chemical peel), and practitioners may utilize a combination of both. Although aesthetic medicine procedures are typically elective, they can significantly improve quality of life, psychological wellbeing and social function.

“Till a few years ago, women who came to the aesthetic clinics were either in show-business or from the elite class. However, today a lot of people have opened up to the idea of cosmetic treatments. This is largely driven by the economically independent women who choose to look their best at all times.
One of the most popular procedures in facial aesthetics are tear trough rejuvenation using dermal fillers.This simple procedure not only takes care of the under-eye hollows but also gives the clients a fresh look.
The trend has largely been driven by children wanting to gift facial procedures to reverse the impact of ageing, helping their mothers appear younger and confident. Most popular procedures among this section are facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers to address sunken eyes and under eye hollows, hence, reversing tired and fatigued eyes into sparkling and bright eyes.
Other concerns like loss of facial volume, such as flat and hollow cheeks, can also be addressed with the help of painless, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. When administered under the skin, they provide volume to the affected area, filling up the hollows and depressions. Fillers also help smoothen fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes to provide a more youthful appearance.
