Aesthetics

The growing trend of aesthetics is often described as a balanced combination of health and wellness expressed in both external and internal beauty. This can manifest itself in the restoring of an individual’s confidence because of a tweak to what they viewed as a problematic part of their outward appearance.   What some patients do not realize is that common aesthetic procedures may be performed at their local urgent care center without having to wait days or weeks for an appointment.

While it is true that aesthetics treatments can make a tangible difference by restoring body tone, minimizing wrinkles, eliminating fine lines, lifting and contouring, promoting elasticity and collagen, and rejuvenating skin, many individuals also seek the treatments to:

  • Feel more confident in their appearance
  • Increase their self-esteem
  • Mirror their internal health externally
  • Reduce daily skin maintenance
  • Reduce the amount of money spent on less effective treatments

It is important to note that aesthetic treatments are not exclusively for women. There are men who choose to benefit from these treatments as well. Everyone deserves the opportunity to look and feel their best.

Common Aesthetic Procedures

Since aesthetic treatments appeal to large audiences, it is crucial that they be administered to patients based on their specific personal needs. No two aesthetic procedures are exactly alike. Although several may address similar patient concerns, they can vary in their content and the way they are administered.

Some of the more common aesthetic procedures offered at urgent care clinics may include:

FFUC-Aesthetics-Neuromuscular-Blockers-300×200

Neuromuscular Blockers

Neuromuscular blockers are a type of muscle relaxant that can be used to treat the effects of old age such as frown lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The use of these can aid in reducing the appearance of aging as it tightens and revitalizes the skin.

FFUC-Aesthetics-Neurotoxins-300×200

Neurotoxins

Wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet can be treated with target-specific neurotoxin injections by a medical professional. Botox and Xeomin are two common neurotoxins that contain the oriented agent of botulinum, which is known to relax facial muscles. Patients frequently report wrinkles softening or diminishing after this popular treatment.

FFUC-Aesthetics-Hyaluronic-Acid-Fillers-300×200

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is an effective skin hydrator. When hyaluronic acid is used as an injectable dermal filler, it typically yields fast results. The use of this filler can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as add volume to the lips.

FFUC-Aesthetics-Dermal-Fillers-300×200

Dermal Fillers

For wrinkles that are caused simply by the natural process of aging via diminished skin elasticity, loss of collagen, and gravity, dermal fillers may be able to help. The appropriately named fillers can fill in these folds or wrinkles and diminish their appearance via injections.

FFUC-Aesthetics-Laser-Treatments-via-the-Fotona-SP-Dynamis-Pro-300×200

This high performance laser is designed to deliver a variety of aesthetics applications such as lipolysis, edovenous laser ablation, and other surgical procedures.

FFUC-Aesthetics-Custom-PCA-Chemical-Peels-300×200

Custom PCA Chemical Peels (Sensi-Peel/Ultra Peel, 6% Pure Retinol)

PCA SKIN is one of the aesthetic industry’s leaders in chemical peels. These skin peels are generally used to address patient concerns such as acne, aging, and hyperpigmentation and may be custom tailored to fit each individual’s needs.

FFUC-Aesthetics-PCA-Skin-Products-300×200

PCA Skin Products

The same company that is often a go-to in the aesthetics industry also provides a variety of skin care products that can help reduce the appearance of aging. The company’s skin products range from exfoliants to peptides to retinols and serums.

Urgent Care Aesthetic Treatments

Although most people think of urgent care centers as treating minor emergency situations, the staff are often trained in a number of different health procedures, including aesthetic treatments. A reputable urgent care facility should have staff that are both trained and certified in the use of neurotoxins, fillers, chemical skin peels, and more.

The wait list for an appointment for a first-time patient, or even an existing patient, at a physician’s office can be longer than some individuals care to wait. An urgent care center that offers aesthetic treatments can be a more immediate solution as they serve primarily walk ins but do reserve a few appointments daily as well.

Another bonus to partnering with an urgent care clinic to address skin care is their business hour flexibility. Whereas many doctor offices are open from nine to five, urgent care centers often have business hours that extend beyond the typical workday and even feature limited weekend hours.

If aesthetic treatments are something you have considered and want more information about, consider visiting your urgent care clinic to speak with a medical professional. Together you can identify the treatment that can best enhance both your appearance and confidence so that you can be the best version of yourself.
