Clinical Update: Aesthetic Treatments

Aesthetic treatments are non-surgical therapies to repair or renew the skin. The most common aesthetic treatments are botulinum toxin injections (Botox), microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and chemical peels. These therapies are used to remove wrinkle or scars and improve appearance. 

Aesthetic treatments are generally elective in nature. Patients may request certain aesthetic procedures based on recommendations from friends or information from the media. Therefore, patient education, informed consent, shared decision-making, and the principles of autonomy and beneficence must always be considered.
