Transcript

I’m Prof. Leonardo Marini, I’m a Dermatology Surgeon, and the chairman of the task force which formed dermatology for the European Academy of Dermatology. I have dedicated over thirty-five years to surgery in the field of dermatology.

What recent advancements in aesthetic medicine have been the most promising?

The demand for aesthetic medicine is surging as people strive for beauty while aging gracefully. Our offerings are diverse, ranging from combination techniques and lasers to topical treatments. A recent significant discovery is the role of the intestinal microbiome in overall health. Effective control of the microbiome enhances the body’s functionality, thereby improving the outcomes of our treatments.

What is the rationale for combining treatments in aesthetic medicine? 

I like to use combination techniques. Relying solely on one method risks overextension, whereas combining different techniques distributes the risk. A single session might include lasers, botulin toxin, chemical peels, and photodynamic therapy, will each requires careful skin analysis. Modern dermatologists must base their decisions on more than just clinical evaluations; skin analysis tools are crucial for identifying patient-specific issues. Informed patients are more willing to proceed with treatments, understanding the potential risks and benefits.

Patients generally prefer multiple treatments over a single, comprehensive one. They opt for shorter downtimes and minimal risk, seeking gradual improvements. Our goal is to guide patients through the process of aging beautifully.

What do you see as the future direction of aesthetic medicine?

The future direction lies in highly personalized treatments. Each patient’s unique response necessitates regular monitoring of the effects of combination treatments. This approach fosters patient trust and satisfaction, as they witness continual improvements both in the mirror and through diagnostic devices. Documenting treatment progress is essential for reminding patients of their improvements and reinforcing their trust in ongoing treatments.
