What can you expect in terms of results from nonsurgical skin rejuvenation devices? Dr. Mark Hamilton discusses demand and expectations.
Mark Hamilton, MD, a facial plastic surgeon in Indianapolis, Ind., says he and others in his specialty bring a critical eye to the results that nonsurgical technologies deliver.
“If someone says ‘facelift-like results,’ we expect to see something in that category, or at least close to it,” he says
While devices enter the market with big claims and good studies, Dr. Hamilton says, his experience is that these devices aren’t quite as good as they thought they were. So where do they fit into the plastic surgery practice?
In his presentation, “Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation: How Good are We Really?,” at the 2020 virtual meeting of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), Dr. Hamilton discusses realistic expectations with nonsurgical skin rejuvenation technologies, continued demand, and appropriate use.
