Skin Conditions (Acne, Scar, Pigmentation lesions, Vascular lesions)
Aesthetic medicine focuses on improving the cosmetic appearance through multiple types of treatments, and many of the common types of treatments include acne, scar, pigmentation lesions, and vascular lesions. Acne and acne scars is one of the most common skin conditions caused by hormone levels, vitamin deficiency, stress, and inflammation. While there is no permanent way to eliminate the formation of acne, there are many skin treatment protocols to treat acne and acne scars.
Other common skin conditions include pigmentation and vascular lesions. The removal of lesions require an understanding of the different types of lesions. Pigmentation lesions are usually formed due to Melanin, blood, or exogenous pigment, and can be classified into melanocytic or non-melanocytic lesions. It is important to know the difference between the various types of pigmentation lesions as there are malignant types that can be a sign of concern. On the other hand, vascular lesions are relatively common—also known as birthmarks—and are generally benign, and noncancerous. The treatment methods of lesions is dependent on the type of lesion as some treatment methods are more beneficial than others.

Energy-based devices and laser-based devices are popular methods for cosmetic treatment. Laser therapy has been used in the cosmetic industry for acne treatment, face lifting, stretch mark removal, scar removal, hair removal/growth, vascular lesions, tattoo removal and photo rejuvenation. They have quickly grown to become one of the most popular non-invasive aesthetic procedures around the world as they are safe, non-toxic and without side effects.

Sclerotherapy treatment is used to treat varicose veins, aka “spider veins,” generally in the calf area. The procedure is non-surgical and requires the injection of treatment into the blood vessels to cause them to shrink. Currently, sclerotherapy is one of the standard methods of treatment for veins, and while the treatment is effective, there are many complications and risks that come with the procedure if not administered properly. The course will teach the proper guidelines to safe sclerotherapy injections, basic venous anatomy, and possible complications that may occur.
