New technologies for cosmetic surgery
and non-surgical cosmetic procedures are becoming more exciting, an expert said at a recent session of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
According to Dr David Goldberg, a skin laser and surgery specialist, "the whole pendulum with what we are trying to accomplish is swinging back with patients wanting to see some results".
One of the new treatments highlighted at the meeting was high-energy plasma skin regeneration, a procedure that can be used to tighten the skin around the eyes.
Dr Brian Biesman, an expert at the Nashville Centre for Laser and Facial Surgery, announced the findings of a clinical trial involving the procedure, which showed that patients rated their overall improvement as 64 per cent.
Dr Biesman commented: "I am very, very enthusiastic about the changes we are seeing. Plasma treatment of the eyelid is a very viable and I think a very exciting technique that can play a nice role in the aesthetic practice."
