Non-surgical doesn’t mean non-medical
The increasing popularity of non-surgical cosmetic procedures is leading to a growing complacency about where procedures are being performed and by whom. Procedures such as Thermage TM , Microdermabrasion or Botox ® injections, while not surgical, are medical procedures and should only be done in appropriate facilities under the supervision of a qualified physician or certified practitioner who has been trained in the particular procedure.
It’s also important to make sure that any procedure is done in an appropriate setting. Medical procedures require sanitary surroundings and sterile instruments, as well as authentic equipment and medications. Parties and group events may compromise results. Non-surgical procedures may also occasionally result in unforeseen consequences. Plans should be in place to handle these emergencies. Lastly, follow-up care is an important part of the doctor-patient relationship and is necessary to help ensure the best results.
