Aesthetics Q&A

What is aesthetic medicine?

Put simply, aesthetic medicine is a specialty discipline that focuses on correcting a defect usually caused by aging. It's a very broad term that includes dermatology, reconstructive medicine, and plastic surgery. There are many procedures that fall into this category and not all of them are available through Kansas Medical Associates.

The specialists at Kansas Medical Associates focus on two factors of aesthetics:

  • Exilis treatments: Body contouring
  • PRP: Platelet rich plasma

Both work to rejuvenate and stimulate healing of tissue to give it a fresher and smoother look. 

What are Exilis treatments?

Exilis is a new form of technology that uses a monopolar radiofrequency device to perform noninvasive contouring. With this high-tech service, the staff at Kansas Medical Associates can provide a variety of aesthetic services such as:

  • Skin tightening
  • Fat burning
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

Fat reduction removes those tiny pockets of fat that just won’t reduce through diet and exercise. It also removes fat stores under the chin and in other areas that tend to get puffy with age.

Skin tightening firms up the face and neck along with some regions of the body, such as:

  • Loose areas under the arm
  • Fleshy spots on the neck
  • Tummy rolls
  • Muffin top areas
  • Saggy chests on men

It is a simple and fast way to tighten and remove those unwanted pouches that form with age.

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

Like everything else, the vagina is subject to the effects of aging, in part, because the pelvis tends to relax as a woman gets older. Vaginal rejuvenation is about more than aesthetics, though. It can treat common problems that plague women such as urinary incontinence and poor sexual function.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. Blood is made up of cells and a liquid called plasma. With PRP, the staff takes blood from the patient and spins out the red and white blood cells. This leaves a liquid that is rich in healing factors and platelets.

When PRP is injected into desired areas, it will stimulate healing that can help rejuvenate the face and slow down the aging process. PRP takes just a few minutes and it uses the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of disease transmission or rejection.
