Aesthetics Q & A

What is an aesthetician?

An aesthetician is a skin specialist who has been licensed to provide a range of services, such as:

  • Facial scrubs
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Waxing
  • Facials
  • Body wraps

What does a medical aesthetician do?

The primary difference between a traditional aesthetician and a medical one is that the latter focuses on more in-depth treatments. More often than not, these treatments involve more advanced light- or laser-based therapies to treat cosmetic issues such as wrinkles, unwanted hair, skin trauma, unwanted fat, and more.

What are common medical aesthetic treatments?

Dr. Emmanuel offers a series of medical aesthetic treatments, including:


Botox is an injectable FDA-approved toxin that is used to smooth facial wrinkles and fine lines. The toxin blocks the nerve signals in the face that control your muscle at the injection site. This prevents your muscles from pulling on your skin and creating lines, giving your skin a youthful glow.

Botox is not a permanent treatment and requires follow-up appointments every 3-4 months to maintain results.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are also known as injectable implants. They help get rid of fine lines in the face. In addition to this, dermal fillers can:

  • Reconstruct and enhance contours
  • Plump up lips
  • Smooth facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve recessed scars

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma uses your own growth factor cells to treat various skin conditions and repair damaged tissue through the stimulation of your collagen production.


CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical weight-loss treatment that freezes fat cells under the skin. In freezing them, the treatment breaks down fat cells, which your body then flushes out.  

YAG laser treatments

YAG laser treatments are extremely useful in reducing the appearance of spider or varicose veins. Using laser technology, Dr. Emmanuel targets the hemoglobin of red blood cells to irritate the inner lining of the blood vessel. This causes the blood vessel to collapse, which gets rid of your spider or varicose veins.


Hydrafacials refer to a combination of exfoliation, extraction, hydration, cleansing, and antioxidant protection.
