What Is Medical Aesthetics?
Typically a medical director presides over the medical spa or medical clinic in which these advanced skin care treatments are performed.
Acne, wrinkles, skin tags, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage are just some of the skin concerns that can be treated with medical aesthetic modalities.
Medical aestheticians provide their clients with effective solutions without requiring any surgery.
