What is aesthetic medicine?
Aesthetic medicine encompasses the use of both surgical and non-surgical techniques to improve facial symmetry and skin health. These include simple goals such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles or adding volume to lips. Aesthetic medicine can also improve skin laxity through non-surgical lifting techniques and surgical lifting techniques. Peach Medical Group focuses and goals that can be attained with no surgery.
Non-Surgical Lifting: PDO Thread Lift
PDO thread lifting is a modern technique that uses surgical threads to lift sagging skin. A tiny incision is made near the area of treatment and a barbed thread is introduced. The thread is then gently pulled resulting in a tighter look. The threads used in this procedure are made up of a polysaccharide (sugar). This means that your body is able to metabolize it over time resulting in significantly less complication or allergic reactions. Although temporary, lifting outcomes may last 12-18 months.

Juvederm XC, Restylane, and More
Dermafillers consist of a hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into different areas of the face. The injection and technique adds volume to give a more plump appearance. Common applications include adding volume to lips to give a fuller look. Another popular application is adding Juvederm XC to the cheek area to give the appearance of higher cheek bone resulting in a more contouring effect. These gels over time are metabolized by your body. Therefore it is a great method to improve facial symmetry without surgery or without the use of permanent fillers.

PRP is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. Since the autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is minimal risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.

Microneedling and CIT
Microneedling and collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a technique that uses small surgical needles to stimulate collagen production. The treatment involves the gliding of a pen over the skin and simultaneously creating micro clefts. These clefts are then filled with growth factors and hyaluronic acid serums. As your skin heals and repairs itself, it leaves behind a smoother texture.
