Minimally invasive aesthetic procedures in young adults.

Wollina U, Goldman A - Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol (2011)

Bottom Line: Age is a significant factor in modifying specific needs when it comes to medical aesthetic procedures.Correction of asymmetries, correction after body modifying procedures, and facial sculpturing are important issues for young adults.The implication of aesthetic medicine as part of preventive medicine is a major ethical challenge that differentiates aesthetic medicine from fashion.

ABSTRACT
Age is a significant factor in modifying specific needs when it comes to medical aesthetic procedures. In this review we will focus on young adults in their third decade of life and review minimally invasive aesthetic procedures other than cosmetics and cosmeceuticals. Correction of asymmetries, correction after body modifying procedures, and facial sculpturing are important issues for young adults. The implication of aesthetic medicine as part of preventive medicine is a major ethical challenge that differentiates aesthetic medicine from fashion.

Mentions: One of the therapeutic principles used is dermal remodelling by stimulation of collagen synthesis. This can be achieved by heating the dermal tissue or wounding as with fractioned CO2 or Erb:YAG laser. Peak temperature, total time of exposure, and mechanical stress applied to the skin during the heating process affect the clinical results. Noninvasive radiofrequency and infrared devices seems to be more active on the looser and delicate skin such as eyelids (Figure 3).21
