Aesthetics Q & A

What are the aesthetics in dermatology?

In dermatology, the term “aesthetics” refers to the practice of improving the appearance of your skin. Through aesthetic treatment with Synergy Physicians, you can eliminate or reduce:

  • Acne 
  • Dark spots and pigmentation
  • Dry skin
  • Loose skin
  • Red, irritated skin
  • Scarring
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

To address cosmetic concerns like these, Synergy Physicians provides treatments such as Botox® and laser therapy in a relaxing medical spa (med spa) environment.

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, a protein that comes from bacteria. Synergy Physicians injects Botox into your muscle to obstruct the path of the muscle’s nerve signals.

Botox is best known for its cosmetic uses. Using it, Synergy Physicians can eliminate, reduce, or soften dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles caused by muscle movements. Examples of such wrinkles include:

  • Lines across the forehead
  • Smile lines and frown lines around the mouth
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Lines between the eyes

A session of Botox injections takes between 10 and 20 minutes to complete, during which you may feel a pinching sensation. You’ll notice results after 24 to 46 hours that last about four months.

What can laser therapy treat?

Using laser therapy, Synergy Physicians can treat static wrinkles and provide treatments including:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Anti-aging 
  • Scar treatment

In general, laser therapy works in a few different ways, depending on whether it’s laser resurfacing or laser/light treatment. 

Laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacing heats the skin and removes a few layers to reveal smoother, less pigmented skin. 

Laser/light treatment

This type of laser therapy is noninvasive and heats the skin with light energy. Eventually, the skin thinks it’s damaged and responds by producing collagen, a protein that hydrates the skin and improves its elasticity. It also promotes healing, reduces inflammation, increases circulation, and reduces swelling.

How can massage therapy improve health?

Massage therapy is more than relaxing. It can improve your health by:

  • Reducing stress
  • Reducing pain
  • Releasing muscle tension

By reducing various types of pain, tension, and anxiety, you can get better sleep and feel more contented in your life, which in turn leads to better skin.
