Aesthetics Q & A

What are aesthetics?

In the medical community, aesthetics are treatments that share a common goal of improving your appearance. They often involve improvements to your skin’s tone or texture, or some form of alteration to your facial contours. 

In many cases, choosing aesthetics allows you to forgo cosmetic surgery. Aesthetic treatments typically have temporary or semi-permanent results, making them less of a commitment than cosmetic surgery, and they do not require as much preparation or recovery time. 

Which aesthetic treatments can I get?

Independent Medical Group offers several professional aesthetic treatment options that you can use to enhance your look. You’ll outline your goals to a provider before you start treatment, and they’ll tell you exactly what to expect and how to prepare. Depending on the results you want to see, they might recommend:


HydraFacial is a unique treatment that cleanses your skin, extracts dirt and bacteria, and exfoliates the surface. The therapy uses a pen-like device with a suctioning effect that also infuses your skin with serums, moisturizers, and antioxidants. 

Plasma Pen

Plasma Pen is a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment. The procedure stimulates your fibroblasts or the cells within your skin that produce firming collagen fibers. 

Dermal fillers

You can inject dermal fillers beneath your skin to replace subdermal fat that diminishes as you age. Dermal fillers can make your lips or cheeks plumper, improve the symmetry of your face, or make other minor tweaks to your facial contours. 

How can I get the most out of my aesthetic treatments?

Even though aesthetic treatment results aren’t permanent, you can make them last to their full potential by preparing effectively for your procedure and taking care of your skin when it’s complete. To get the most out of the aesthetic medicine at Independent Medical Group, you should:

  • Follow all pre-treatment instructions
  • Protect your skin from ultraviolet (UV) light
  • Cleanse and moisturize your skin
  • Ask lots of questions about your treatment beforehand

If you enjoy your results and want them to last for longer, you can book additional treatments of the same kind once the results start to diminish. For example, dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months or longer, depending on which type you use. You can get another round of injections to revamp the volume after your skin absorbs most of the original fillers.
